And the winners are… find out which products won this year’s ‘Beauty Oscars

It’s not just actors that get awards.

MOST POPULAR

Beauty products do, too. On Monday, the winners of this year’s Cosmetic Exectuive Women (CEW) Awards – aka the ‘Beauty Oscars’ – were announced, revealing the industry insiders’ picks from the plethora of products launched over the past twelve months. I’m always interested to see what the industry execs, as opposed to the journos, have picked out as their favourites – we’re not the only ones who know our stuff.

See a complete list of winners by clicking here (you can buy them there, too), but a wee preview from me first:

Ever-popular Clinique won Best New Everyday Skincare Product for its Superdefense SPF 25 Age Defense Moisturizer and Best Classic Beauty Product with Airbrush Concealer, while Tri-Atkiline won the Best New Anti-Ageing Skincare Product.

In the ‘Mass’ category, quirky-cool brand Soap & Glory won Best Everyday Skincare product for Glow Job as well as Best New Bath And Body product for Scrub Actually.

Max Factor False Lash Effect Mascara, Neal’s Yard White Tea Enriching Face Mask, St Tropez Everyday Body and Leighton Denny Crystal Nail File also won awards.

Lovely.

Look out for our very own beauty awards in the June issue (on sale next Wednesday) – we tested hundreds and hundreds of products – classic and new – to come up with Elle’s Hot 100. If you’re as overwhelmed by all the very many beauty products available as I am, then it’s another good place to start.

In the meantime, bag yourself some top quality swag by entering this amazing competition. I persuaded CEW to put together a selection of their finalists and winners so one of you could win it and this is what they came up with:
