2020 Readers’ Choice Awards: Vote for Your Favorites Now!

Voting Open

2020 Readers' Choice Awards

Now through January 26th, cast your votes for the best products across several categories! There are specific, best-of-the-year (2019) categories as well as best ever kind of categories (considering all currently-available products through the end of 2019). Each category has between 10 to 15 nominees (gets longer in the event of ties in number of nominations) based on readers’ nominations earlier this month.

You don’t have to vote for every category–vote for as many or as few categories as you’d like! We have also created an “other” category to encourage readers in case you feel like you need to cast a vote but really don’t love any of the nominees.

  • Voting: January 20th, 2020 through January 26th, 2020 10PM PST.
  • Results: February 4th, 2020

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

I love these! Although I’m always disappointed to see when my faves don’t make the cut. Glad to see Sydney Grace getting (much deserved) recognition!

Honestly I wish I could vote for Glossier Cloud Paint more times. Their vibe is a bit try-hard but it’s changed my blush game. Sydney Grace eyeshadow has been a huge deal for me too. Also, it’s not listed but Sugarpill liquid lipstick. So many amazing options these days!

I love that Lisa Eldridge brand is getting more exposure. I love her lipsticks, and I hope she releases more awesome things in the future.

It would be cool to see a skincare or even perfume faves list one day. I didn’t see any “other” options! There are some things that didn’t make it but work great! I voted for what was present :).

Hi Sana,

We omitted categories like skincare due to lower participation and weak winners (votes very scattered combined with significantly less votes than other categories) – likely due to the fact that there’s no universally great moisturizer due to skin types, skin concerns, etc.

Makes complete sense !!! For some reason I thought there was an overall fave skincare line or best underated or best budget skincare line etc… I really enjoy this system for makeup and am glad that you do it !! Thank you.

We try to approve comments within 24 hours (and reply to them within 72 hours) but can sometimes get behind and appreciate your patience! 🙂 If you have general feedback, product review requests, off-topic questions, or need technical support, please contact us directly. Thank you for your patience!
