This lipstick has medium-coverage and 30 different shades to choose from! These are super hydrating lipsticks that add a lush coat of moisture on the lips while adding a nice tint of color. These lipsticks have noticeable coverage, but note that the pigment is sheerer than an opaque formula.
2nd Place: Dior Addict Lip Glow
The Dior Addict Lip Glow is a sheer balm that enhances your natural lip color while moisturizing the lips. It only comes in 2 colors, Coral and Pink. The lipstick is supposed to react with the chemistry of your lips to create a special shade that lasts all day.

This eyeliner is long-lasting, both in product amount and wear time. It draws out pigmented and smooth lines. The tip of this liner is very precise.
This waterproof liquid liner applies easily and is long-lasting. It comes in 13 shades. Rather than the usual brush tip, this liner is a marker-style tip, making it easier to get a smooth line. The best part about this liner is that since it is waterproof, it won’t smudge.
3rd Place: Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner
The Bobbi Brown Long-Wear Gel Eyeliner makes lining your eyes super easy. This liner glides on smoothly and precisely, then dries down to a long-lasting, water-resistant finish. It comes in 10 different shades. Note that it does not come with a brush, so you would have to buy it separately.
1st Place: Urban Decay Naked Palettes
Here it is: the infamous Urban Decay Naked Palettes. Each of these palettes is loaded with 12 beautiful shadows, including matte, satin, shimmer and sparkle finishes. From the most elegant champagne shadows to the grittiest gunmetal shadows, Naked palettes have it all. There’s bound to be a shadow for any look you’re going for. The shadows are so easy to use that it doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner in makeup or a professional.
2nd Place: Tom Ford Eyeshadow Quad
Tom Ford Quads each have four beautifully pigmented shades that can be used to create any type of look. Each of the ten quads available includes a matte, satin, shimmer, and sparkle shade. Most of the shadow finishes are smooth and are easily applicable. The shadows wear well with minimal fading.
3rd Place: Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palette
If you’re into pearly, shimmery shadows, these are for you. Each palette consists of a base shadow, two powder shadows, a sparkling highlight shade and a gel liner (small brushes included). These shadows have a hazy pigment, so if you’re going for a vibrant look, it’ll take a bit to build them up.
1st Place: Kiss Me Heroine Make Long and Curl Mascara
Kiss Me’s Mascara was awarded by Cosme’s Best Cosme Awards in 2009. This waterproof mascara contains polymer fibers that lengthen the lashes. It’s lightweight, long-lasting and curl-maintaining.
Lancome’s mascara has a swan neck wand that provides length, lift and volume to all lashes. The shape of the wand works with the shape of your face for easier application. With just one coat, this mascara will sweep through your lashes and deposit a good amount of product.
This Diorshow Mascara comes in 7 different colors. The microfibers enriched in it reproduces the effect of lash extensions. Just one stroke adds plenty of volume to your natural lashes. Its lash-care action helps smooth lashes for great shape, coverage and volume.
1st Place: Kanebo Kate Designing Eyebrow Powder Palette
These little eyebrow powder palettes include 3 shades, light-dark, to create a natural shade to the brow, nose and eyes. There are two palette choices, EX-4 light brown and EX-5 dark brown. Each little palette includes a dual ended brush - one side for precise application and the other for contouring and blending.
2nd Place: Anastasia Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil
Anastasia Beverly Hills makes probably some of the best products out there and the Brow Wiz is one that I am personally obsessed with. There are 10 shades to choose from. This brow pencil is very slim and is great for precise detailing. This product gives such a natural look to the brows compared to other products. One end of this product is the pencil and the other end is a spooley for you to brush through your brows with. The texture is super easy to work with, giving you the option to go light or heavy on the brows depending on the day.
3rd Place:Shu Uemura Hard Formula
This brow pencil is quite different from all other pencils we see nowadays. This is one of Shu Uemura’s most iconic products. The flat angled, lead tip is hard and not very pigmented when swatching it on the back of your hand. However, the color of this pencil grabs onto hairs easily and naturally, giving you the look of natural-looking brows.
1st Place: Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer
The Cle de Peau Beaute Concealer comes in a twist-up tube. It looks quite small but is said to last quite a long time. This concealer blends out perfectly and covers imperfections like no other. This concealer doesn’t cake or slide. There are 6 shades to choose from. Most recommend to apply this product straight from the tube and pat to blend.
2nd Place: NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer
This is a product I truly believe everyone needs to try. The Radiant Creamy Concealer glides onto the skin extremely smoothly. With this concealer, a little goes a long way. Not only can this concealer cover imperfections, you can also play around with lighter and darker shades to highlight and contour. NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is definitely a must-have in your makeup bag!
3rd Place: YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch
The Touche Eclat Radiant Touch is one of YSL’s most popular products. It adds an amazing radiance to the skin. A pen-brush tip allows for extremely simple application. Use this product to add a touch of light and banish shadows. The formula is creamy, smooth and designed to glide on sheerly.
1st Place: Nars Orgasm Blush
If you’ve dabbled a bit in the makeup world, professionally or not, I’m sure you’ve heard of the infamous NARS Orgasm. It suits just about every single skin tone. The color of the base blush and the golden highlight are such beautiful and flattering colors. This blush applies evenly, is nicely pigmented and contains just the right amount of shimmer.
This blush is a beautiful pale-pink that has warm undertones and very, very light golden shimmer. The Dandelion Blush creates a radiant glow on the cheeks immediately after application. This product comes with a soft-bristle brush that allows for easy application.
The quality of Hourglass blushes are amazing. They are smooth and silky, while remaining quite pigmented. Ethereal Glow is a cool-toned pink shade and is the lightest of the Ambient Lighting Blushes. This blush brings radiance to the face and adds a very delicate flush.
Highlight & Contour
1st Place: Cle de Peau Beaute Luminizing Face Enhancer
These Luminizing Face Enhancers are multi-colored and embossed powders that have finely milled shimmer that provides a glow that is unlike any other. The powder is soft and velvety, blending very smoothly onto the skin with just the right amount of translucency. One of the best things about this enhancer is that it doesn’t accentuate pores like some others do!
2nd Place: NARS Contour Blush
There are currently so many similar products out there, but there’s something about this NARS duo that others cannot compare to. A lot of people are hesitant about the price of this ($42) and may want to find a dupe such as the ELF Contour and Blush duo ($3), but none of those dupes blend as seamlessly and as easily as this duo does. A huge part of that is due to the silica beads and jojoba found in the NARS Contour Blush.
Laura Mercier’s ultra-smooth baked face powder has changed that game for many people. This beautiful powder gives a radiant, healthy glow that looks much more natural than other similar face powders. This product contains Vitamin E and jojoba oil to moisturize and protect the skin.
1st Place:Givenchy Prisme Libre
This mattifying loose powder combines four shades into one perfect harmony. The powder mattifies and sets makeup to last longer. The pigments help soften the complexion as well. The powder grains are really finely milled, so they don’t settle into pores and draw attention to them. This is a great product for those who aren’t fans of the dewy look and want to stick to a matte finish.
Laura Mercier’s loose powder is very lightweight and has sheer coverage, giving the skin a natural-looking matte finish. It’s the perfect product for all skintones. Whether you decide to use a face brush or puff to apply this, the silky smooth texture will simply disappear on the skin, never leaving a heavy feel over foundation.
3rd Place: La Mer The Powder
La Mer The Powder is an incredibly lightweight loose powder that gives skin the perfect finish. It keeps your skin looking like your skin and creates a natural yet polished finish. A small powder puff is included in the jar as well. The powder is finely milled, so you may lose quite a bit of product if a brush is used instead.

Lotions and Creams
We have arrived at the infamous Creme de la Mer face cream. This skin cream is definitely one of the higher priced items but there are just so many great things said about it. The creator of La Mer worked for NASA and suffered severe burns on his face after a lab accident. He couldn’t find a single product that could treat his burns so he spent the next 12 years perfecting the art of bio-fermentation. Kelp is a key ingredient in this product, as it has the endless ability to regenerate. In a short amount of time, Creme de la Mer will improve firmness and reudce the visibility of lines, wrinkles and pores.
Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cream is a daily face moisturizer that helps reduce moisture loss while drawing and absorbing moisture from the air. Originally used by explorers for protection during the first ascent of Greenland’s ice-covered peaks, this creamy moisturizer shields skin from environmental damage. Squalane, Kiehl’s signature ingredient, works to restore natural moisture balance.
This product provides 24 hour hydration. The Super 7 Complex this face cream contains is designed to minimize and prevent visible signs of aging and boost radiance.

This highly concentrated serum creates a deeply hydrating, dewy veil that helps protect against impurities and oxidation.

Shiseido’s ANESSA is a milky sunscreen that is waterproof and suitable for any kind of activity. It protects against UVA and UVB and is proven to be sweat-resistant and sebum-proof. Unlike other sunscreens that seem to dry the skin to some degree, this product is infused with hyaluronic acid to add moisture.
The usual complaint about sunscreens is that they are too greasy and sticky when applying to skin. This sunscreen however is just the opposite; it instantly mattifies the skin, leaving it soft but oil-free. The milky liquid goes on like water but absorbs into the skin almost instantly. It has a very soft, pretty rose scent as well.
This sunscreen is a light and hydrating creamy gel. The product includes sodium hyaluronate for extra hydration, vitamin and amino acid-rich royal jelly extract to firm skin and citrus extracts to brighten. Upon contact with skin, it turns into a watery texture that absorbs easily without leaving behind a greasy, oily feel.
The Dark Horse Candidate
This sunscreen is unscented, which cannot be said for a majority of sunscreens. The thin white cream has an almost mousse-like texture and goes on sheer. This sunscreen goes on with the whiteness of most sunscreens, BUT it sinks in. On fair and medium-toned skin, it is scarcely noticeable but it is slightly more visible on darker-toned skin. This sunscreen goes on easily, lightly and evenly.
Lancome’s makeup remover removes every trace of makeup, including the most resilient waterproof formulas. It doesn’t sting or irritate the eyes either. It’s an ideal product for people with sensitive skin and contact wearers. The remover leaves your eyes feeling nice and relaxed with no oily residue.
This product is one that I personally consider a holy grail. It works wonders. Bioderma Solution Micellaire is a water based makeup remover that gently cleanses the skin. Its fatty acid esters, the constituent elements of micelles, are similar to the phospholipids of the skin cell membranes and naturally help rebuild the skin's hydrolipidic film. You’re definitely getting the bang for your buck with this product.
Eve Lom launched her cleansing balm over 25 years ago and Vogue called it “possibly the best cleanser in the world.” Present day: It remains a favorite of skincare obsessed ladies. This product comes with a muslin washcloth to help exfoliate and get your blood flowing. It has chamomile oil to soften and soothe, clove oil for clarity (although people say clove oil is irritating), eucalyptus oil to decongest, hops oil to tone, and cocoa butter to condition your skin.
The Dark Horse Candidate
Fancl’s makeup remover dissolves and removes even the most stubborn makeup without stripping natural oil from your skin. It is formulated with the best balance of oil and cleansing ingredients, not leaving any residue. It is a clear, scentless liquid consistency that spreads easily on the face.
Caudalie is a high-end skincare brand from France that started out as a winery, which is why grapes are their staple ingredient. This 100% organic grape water comes straight from the vine and is filled with moisturizing ingredients for a fresh, dewy complexion. Caudalie Grape Water acts as both a toner and hydrator to rejuvenate your skin any time of the day!
This hydrating and balancing mist is sourced from the medicinal springs in Avene, France. Avene’s mist soothes redness and calms different types of skin troubles.
