Here are some of Shape Magazine’s Top Products of the Year!

Curious what beauty products to invest in this fall? Shape magazine helps you narrow down the best products with their annual beauty awards! Shape asked their readers to vote for their favorite products on Shape.com. Then the products were tested by the Shape staff and a beauty awards task force — comprised of a dermatologist, makeup artist, hairstylist, colorist, and even a manicurist. Check out some standout winners:

Primer winner: Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Radiance
$30, Lauramercier.com

Think celebs and movie stars are the only people who can benefit from a primer? Think again! Primers help give everyday makeup major staying power. Plus, some of the best primers out on the market smooth out the skin and create an even surface so makeup can be applied and blended more easily. This primer from Laura Mercier has a pearl tint that adds luminosity and helps minimize the appearance of fine lines. It comes in one universally-appealing shade.

Foundation winner: Estée Lauder Invisible Fluid Makeup
$35, Esteelauder.com

A lot of women shy away from foundation because they expect it to look and feel heavy on their skin, but this formula from Estee Lauder is one of the lightest bases on the market. Despite feeling and looking lightweight, it provides great coverage and helps even out all skin tones. It comes in 16 different shades (from white to dark) providing a great match for all ethnicities.

BB cream winner: Dior Hydra Life BB Crème
$56, Sephora.com

BB creams (aka: beauty balms) have made a big splash in the beauty world this year. The main reason? They pack a lot of punch in one small bottle, often providing the benefit of hydration, wrinkle-protection, and SPF protection all in one step. This tinted beauty balm from Dior conceals imperfections, softens skin, controls oil, and protects with SPF 30.

Powder winner: Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing Powder
$14, drugstores

A great powder is essential for setting makeup and preventing oil build-up and shine in the T-Zone area. Revlon ColorStay Aqua Mineral Finishing powder minimizes the appearance of pores and fine lines and leaves a translucent finish. Best of all? It contains hydrating coconut water and feels cool upon application.

Concealer winner: Sephora Smoothing & Brightening Concealer
$14, Sephora.com

A good concealer can do everything from hide unsightly blemishes to brighten the undereye area. Hyaluronic acid in this creamy cover-up plumps fine lines and prevents it from caking, while light-reflecting pigments camouflage dark circles. Its tapered brush makes hiding pimples a cinch and its small size makes it super portable for on-the-go touch-ups.

Eyeliner winner: Yves Saint Laurent Effet Faux Cils Shocking Felt-Tip Eyeliner Pen
$29, Yslbeautyus.com

Most eyeliners smudge, flake, or create imperfect lines. The extra-fine tip of this easy-to-wield, marker-like liner combines the precision of a pencil with the intensity of a liquid liner. It’s ideal for women who want to wear a wing-tipped cat eye look, but is also great for everyday usage.
