When it comes to makeup, I’m a little bit boring. I typically decide to stick with a product that works well for me as opposed to trialling and erroring a multitude of different ones to see if there is a better contender, and I’m perfectly happy with my mix of products from Shoppers Drugmart and Sephora.
That isn’t to say that I don’t enjoy reading up on some of the best makeup products out there, and I wanted to do a little bit of research to see which ones made the cut for this year. This information comes from Glamour.com.

I didn’t list the prices for these products, but if you’re curious to know, check out the original Glamour article, linked above.
I’ve used one or two of these products myself, and while I may have a different opinion of them than others, I think this list is, overall, pretty legitimate. Granted, the products mentioned fall into the ‘luxury’ beauty category, so if you’re not looking to break the bank I would imagine you could uncover some dupes for a few of them with a bit of research.
