The Best of Beauty

September 10, 2013

Allure readers vote for their favorites.

Most women have one or two must-have beauty products. You know, that lipstick or eyecream that they just can't live without. But Allure readers identified dozens no, make that hundreds, of products that they consider the crème de la crème and they made their votes count at the 2013 Best of Beauty Awards last night.

This year's winners include:

The Big Breakthroughs: Fourteen of the most game-changing innovative products of the year, such as the Color Wow Root Cover Up, the Sephora + Pantone IQ Color IQ system, and the T3 Featherweight Luxe 2i hair-dryer.

Eyes: The mascaras, liners, and shadows that will make your eyes bigger, brighter, and sexier, such as the L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Lashes Waterproof Mascara, which testing revealed can withstand the sweatiest Spin class but also gently washes away.

Hair: The products that will deliver shinier, healthier hair, such as the Pantene AgeDefy Advanced Thickening Treatment, which makes skimpy strands thicker with a daily spritz.

Cheap Thrills: The products that cost $10 or less that deliver and stood out from the rest in testing, including CoverGirl Clean Whipped Creme Foundation, which demonstrates remarkable endurance in keeping complexions looking flawless despite being extremely airy and blendable.

Skin: The exceptional skin-care products that deliver the best cleansing, moisturizing, and anti-aging results, such as Elure's Advanced Lightening Lotion, which diminishes discoloration in four weeks with a natural enzyme.

The full results of Allure's Best of Beauty Awards can be found at allure.com/go/best-of-beauty and in the October issue, hitting newsstands September 17.
