READERS' CHOICE

Em Cosmetics Micro-Fluff Sculpting Brow Cream

We're always here for a good brow pomade and this one can play with the best of them. As its name implies, it's got a fluffy texture, which works to add volume and definition without ever feeling heavy, sticky, or crunchy.

HONORABLE MENTIONS
Concealer
-

EDITORS' PICK

Charlotte Tilbury Magic Vanish Colour Corrector

Though some of the shades look a bit intimidatingly orange, don't be afraid: This stuff is basically magic. It's lightweight and easy to blend and best of all, thanks to its color-correcting technology it blurs dark circles into oblivion.

READERS' CHOICE

E.L.F. 16HR Camo Concealer

Sometimes, life just calls for super high-coverage concealers. This option fits the bill nicely. It covers just about anything and even better, it never goes all cakey.

READERS' CHOICE

Wet n Wild Mega Last Breakup-Proof Liquid Eyeliner

It's not every day that you find a liquid liner that a) sticks around all day, b) creates foolproof wings and c) costs roughly the same amount as a cup of coffee. This is what dreams are made of!

HONORABLE MENTIONS

Lip Gloss
-

EDITORS' PICK

Bobbi Brown Crushed Oil-Infused Gloss

In a lot of ways, this is the perfect lip gloss: It's super shiny and pigmented, it's non-sticky and perhaps most importantly, it's very hydrating. Who even needs lipstick and/or balm when you've got a gloss this good?

READERS' CHOICE

Em Cosmetics True Gloss

Each shade in this line up is so decadent and saturated (well, except for the clear gloss of course, which we also love). We're falling hard and fast for Michelle Phan's revamped brand!

Maybelline New York The Falsies Lash Lift Washable Mascara Eye Makeup

You can't really go wrong with a Maybelline mascara — and this one is particularly great. It delivers excellent length and volume, and we love how fluffy the brush is.

HONORABLE MENTIONS

HONORABLE MENTIONS
Primer
-

EDITORS' PICK

Milk Makeup Hydro Grip Primer

We're so here for the jelly primer revolution. Unlike traditional primers, this one is hydrating and the slightest bit tacky (all the better to "grip" onto your makeup!). It really does help your makeup stick around all day and it's comfy to boot.

READERS' CHOICE

E.L.F. Matte Putty Primer

Here's another innovative primer formulation: This putty is easy to work with and seriously increases your makeup's wear time. It's also great for mattifying oily skin, thanks to ingredients like kaolin clay and white charcoal.
