Glow's Best in Beauty Awards 2008

One of the most popular places to purchase "drugstore" cosmetics in Canada is Shoppers Drug Mart (SDM). SDM puts out a monthlyy beauty magazine called Glow and recently Glow held its Annual Readers' Choice Beauty Survey to see what the most popular products were.

Along with the readers' favourites are the Editors' Picks.

The best thing about this list is that most of these products are drugstore brands, which means the prices are much more affordable than other "Best of..." lists. Time to go shopping, ladies!

I must admit though that not many of my own personal favourites made the list - how about yours?

Gosh Extreme Art Eye Liner Extremely Waterproof is AMAZING! It's thicker than the regular liquid eyeliner, so it's easier to control.

It really is waterproof. I put it on my hand and it stayed on through 3 hand washes.

I got it in a bright blue, and it really makes my eyes pop!

I'm surprised LashBlast didn't win the Mascara category though.
