The Best Cosmetic Brands

The top cosmetic brands make beauty products like mascara, lipstick, lotion, perfume and nail polish ranging from the most expensive, exclusive cosmetic brands to the best affordable cosmetic brands. Some brands are better than others but these best makeup brands stand above and beyond the rest while making you look like a million bucks without spending that much.

Like all things, sometimes just because something is more expensive does not mean that the quality is better, and some of the best cosmetics brands are not the most expensive makeup brands. This goes for cosmetics, but is also true that sometimes paying less is not worth getting an inferior product. Because of all of this, it's often a good idea to perform some trial and error with the products to decide which you think is the greatest cosmetic brand.

Company A may sell absolutely killer nail polish, but their foundation just doesn't cut it. Company B has mineral foundation you cannot live without, but their lipstick leaves a lot to be desired. Nothing says you must stick with one cosmetics brand for everything. Mix and match your eye shadows, mascaras and blush to find a combination perfect for you.

We've all made regretful cosmetics purchases, but with this user ranked list of cosmetics brands, should you run into a dud, you can vote down the cosmetics products that aren’t worth the money and time so other makeup users don’t run into the same cosmetics problems. If you don’t see your favorite cosmetics brand or the brand you consider to be the best makeup brand, make sure to add it to the list so other cosmetics users can discover your favorite makeup brands.
