The results are finally in! Today, Mecca announced the winners of their 2018 Beauty Election as voted by all of you. For each of the 12 categories, one product has been deemed the best of the best, meaning you can now shop the top beauty products without any hesitations.
It’s no surprise that cult favourite NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer came out on top for the concealer category. But there are a few under-the-radar products being crowned too: Drunk Elephant Lala Retro™ Whipped Cream for best moisturiser, and bareMinerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream for best foundation – replacing last year’s winner (and everyone’s favourite) Nars Sheer Glow Foundation.
