February 27, 2019 2:23 pm

Welcome to the second annual HelloGiggles 2019 Beauty Crush Awards!

The decision to have our own best in beauty was born out of HelloGiggles pure love for all things makeup, skin care, and hair. Since we’re always talking about our favorite products with each other, we wanted to share them with you, our lovely readers, on a whole ‘nother level. With bare faces and bold hearts, we tested hundreds of beauty products to find the best ones no matter your budget, whether you want to grab a new lipstick on your next Target run or spoil yourself with a bougie moisturizer upon receiving your tax return.

This year, we’ve found a whopping 111 products that had us crushin’ like crazy. We’ve also introduced a few new categories, such as Best Vegan Beauty Brand, Most Innovative Beauty Brand, and Best K-Beauty Brand.

Get ready to be obsessed—without further ado, the winners of HelloGiggles 2019 Beauty Crush Awards.

Rebecca Peloquin

Best Rising Brand: No B.S.

We love everything about this brand. Clean, straight-forward ingredients, minimalist packaging. Really—No B.S. Great product line.

Best Natural/Clean Beauty Brand: Mad Hippie

“I loved Mad Hippie’s floral aroma, natural, cruelty-free ingredients, and cute packaging from the jump—and then the products did exactly what they promised (brightened my face, shrunk my pores, and moisturized my skin)—and they didn’t need harsh chemicals to do it. I swear it looked like I was wearing highlighter after using their Exfoliating Serum for a couple of weeks.”—Rachel, Features Editor

Best Vegan Beauty Brand: Kat Von D Beauty

“Kat Von D Beauty is not only fully vegan, but the products are all gorgeous and of great quality. From the iconic Tattoo Liner to the beloved Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks, I’m crazy about everything this brand comes out with.”—Marie, Senior Beauty Editor

Most Innovative Brand: Mazz Hanna

“Crystal-infused beauty is a big trend, but celebrity nail artist Mazz Hanna takes it to a whole ‘nother level with her new brand. She incorporates CBD into her formulas and the attention to detail is truly unique.”—Marie, Senior Beauty Editor

Most Exciting 2018 Launch: Aquis Prime Hair System

We immediately noticed a difference in the condition of both our scalp and hair with this unique system that focuses on damage that can occur from water. It’s different than what we’re used to (it incorporates a pre-wash). Back-to-back great hair days.

Best K-Beauty Brand: Dr. Jart+

We can thank Dr. Jart+ for kicking off the K-beauty trend here in the States. From its Cicapair line to the Shake and Shot Rubber Masks, Dr. Jart+ has our skin care-loving hearts.

Best Non-Drugstore Liquid Lipstick: Fenty Stunna Lip Paint

“I know that I shouldn’t be surprised by Rihanna’s domination of the cosmetic industry by now, but this Fenty Stunna Lip Paint is next level—even for her. I prefer liquid lipstick, except it normally never lasts long. But Stunna Lip Paint’s extremely pigmented colors survived meals and drinks and livened up any basic makeup look, whether I was dressed up for day or night.”—Rachel, Features Editor

Best Non-Drugstore Lip Moisturizer: Farmacy Honey Butter Lip Balm

“This lip balm is hydrating without being heavy, and never leaves lips feeling gummy—even if you wear it overnight. And it has a light, pleasant scent—no overwhelming mint or fake cherries here.”—Steph, Senior Lifestyle Editor

We love how simple we can contour our lips with this dual-ended pencil.

Best Drugstore Lip Moisturizer: Chapstick Total Hydration Lip Balm
