After months of testing, reviewing, and editing, we're revealing the best of the best of this year's beauty products. The entire BRIDES staff sifted through the good, the bad, and the ugly, testing everything from foundation to fragrance, eye shadows to lipsticks, nail polish to bronzers. Some of my personal favorite discoveries? L'Oréal's Voluminous Million Lashes mascara—for just eight bucks, it thickened and defined lashes just as well as mascaras that cost four times as much. And Yves Saint Laurent's Easy liner was a total life-changer: It literally glides along like a pen and draws a perfectly straight line. Read on for a complete list of winners, and prepare your new beauty-shopping list for the most gorgeous wedding day ever!
