Second Annual Temptalia Beauty Awards 2008 – Winners, Part 1

Many votes were casts, many products nominated, and even more suggested during the voting process, but only few could be winners! Check out the winners for the first six categories of the ballot:

Best Brand of 2008
Best New Beauty Product of 2008
Best MAC Collection of 2008
Worst MAC Collection of 2008
Most Surprisingly Amazing Product of 2008
Most Disappointing Product of 2008

Is it really shocking that MAC won by a total and utter landslide? NARS and Urban Decay were second and third respectively, but they were just nowhere near the level of popularity as MAC for 2008!

See the rest of the winners!  Don’t forget… DISCUSS, DISCUSS, DISCUSS!! the results.  Surprised?  Disgusted?  Joyous?

MAC Dazzleglasses really won over your hearts this year with its glittery, glossy formula! Rumors of future permanence since their original release have abounded, but hopefully this spring we’ll see some confirmation. MAC’s Hello Kitty launch in February will see an additional two dazzleglasses launched for the Kitty Kouture Collection–you just might want to snag one to see what the hype is about! In second place, MAC’s new mineralize blushes, while Make Up For Ever’s HD Foundation/Powder was shortly behind in third place.

Cult of Cherry truly stood out as a collection that offered something for a lot of you, as it was a clear frontrunner in the awards! With nearly 10% less votes, Fafi for MAC came in second, while Heatherette trailed swiftly after in third place.

Suite Array won fair and square–completely ahead by the votes as MAC’s worst release of 2008. Dame Edna was significantly behind, but it fell in second place; with Emanuel Ungaro in third place.

Urban Decay takes the prize with their Potion! They were ahead by a mere 2%, with Urban Decay 24/7 Pencils coming in second (go UD!)–which barely beat out CoverGirl’s Lash Blast Mascara that came in third. I’m pretty surprised at the way the votes went here. I definitely see it coming!

With Suite Array voted the worst MAC Collection, it’s not surprisingly that Suite Array eyeshadows were voted the most disappointing. Nearly 40% of total votes went towards Suite Aray! MAC’s Metal-x eyeshadows came in second with 17% of votes. CoverGirl’s Last Blast Mascara and MAC Mineralized eyeshadows tied for third with 10% of total votes.
