We Asked, You Answered: These Are Byrdie Readers' Favourite Makeup Products
The Lovecats Inc. / Haobin Ye
According to Nielsen, the most trusted product review comes from those closest to you. In fact, 92% of people would sooner buy something because a loved one told them to than listen to an advertisement or even a third-party expert. As editors, we love science, hard facts, and learning from our expert contacts, but we're quick to admit that a friend texting us about a game-changing serum or a brow pencil to end all brow pencils will have us running to Sephora faster than anything else.
And because we consider you all friends, we value your input just as much as our inner circle. You comment on our stories to tell us your opinions, DM us, and have conversations with us on Facebook, and trust us when we say we value your recommendations. That's why we put an ask out to you, dear readers (on Instagram and our secret Facebook group), to find out which products you deem the cream of the crop. Today's focus: makeup. Ahead, take a look at your #1 picks!
Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation ($99)
Celebrities, makeup artists, and, as it turns out, most of you, love this buildable formula for its ability to melt into the skin weightlessly while still providing smooth coverage. There's a reason why it's often the foundation of choice on the red carpet.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector® Pressed Highlighter ($68)
A personal favorite among Byrdie editors, this glow-inducing formula reigned supreme in the comments section of our Instagram crowdsource. "Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop highlighter is the best one ever for day to night glow," says fan_breakeven, and, bloomchapters, who cites Opal as her favorite shade, says, "It's such a multi-functional product! [I] use it as either a highlighter or eye shadow."
Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Belle De Jour ($39)
Rather than a typical bullet, your favorite lip product was this long-lasting chubby pencil from Nars. With so many colors to choose from, it's hard not to fall in love with the nearly infallible, smooth formula (your favorite seems to be Cruella).
