Allure was the first magazine to create a beauty awards issue, and though many others have followed in its wake, theirs is still the most coveted of all the magazine awards. And for good reason: As a former Allure editor, I can tell you that the testing process—which lasts a full six months—is about as thorough as it gets. So when you see a product boasting that red Best of Beauty seal, trust me, its worthy of the accolades! This year's winners have just been revealed, and our brands won an outstanding 16 awards, including one Beauty Breakthrough Award for Lancôme Ôscillation PowerFoundation. And that's just for the makeup! Our haircare, skincare, and fragrances also earned top honors in numerous categories (check out the October issue of Allure to find out all the winners). Read on to see which of our makeup products are taking home the prize this year. Then start filling up your makeup bags with them, because these winners have a tendency to fly off the shelves!
