Second City Style’s 2009 Beauty Olympics Part 1: Color Cosmetics

April 28, 2009 • Beauty


Second City Style's 2009 Beauty Olympics are finally here! This year we tested thousands of products to find the best of the best in just about every beauty category.
From makeup to foot scrubs, we have you literally covered form head to
foot! We put these products to the test and sacrificed ourselves
(literally) to make sure that you didn’t waste your precious time and
money on products that don’t work!

You might notice it’s a little different than the past few years.
There were so many wonderful products, often times it was difficult to
just choose one winner. More often than not, the winning product only
won by 1-3 votes. With such small margins, we felt we weren’t doing you
justice by not sharing with you other products were absolutely
fantastic. Keeping with the “Olympic” theme, we now have Gold, Silver and Bronze winners as well as a couple of Honorable Mentions.
In some categories, you’ll notice only one “gold” winner — why you ask?
Because nothing else we tested came close to this product!

So after several months of testing, 4 skin allergies, a couple of
horrific breakouts and some fried hair, I’d like to start our opening
ceremonies with the best products to help you put your best face
