Here’s a scenario every person who’s obsessed with makeup encounters: Walking into Sephora to pick up a concealer or a mascara and suddenly getting lost in the myriad of choices. Sure, you know that Make Up For Ever and NARS make some of the best products out there, but is it best to get a foundation from Make Up For Ever and a concealer from NARS? Or should it be the other way around?
There’s really no way to make a definitive list of the best products from every makeup brand (after all, the same product could work in many different ways for a bunch of different people), but there is a way to get closer to knowing what the best choices are from each brand. We stumbled upon a Reddit thread that found users listing the one product they would choose from the biggest makeup brands out there and we also cross-checked each user favorite with the best-selling products on Sephora, Nordstrom, Ulta and other popular retailers. Behold, the best makeup and most popular products from 13 of your favorite beauty brands.
