<![CDATA[The Best Cosmetic Brands]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/top-cosmetics-brands/makeup-tips
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.

Makeup lovers everywhere are voting for their top favorite cosmetics brands right here. 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. Some lines may not work for you, even if they are the most popular.

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.

<![CDATA[The 30+ Best Animation Companies in the World]]> http://www.ranker.com/list/animation-companies-ranked/nikoberi

Any fan of animation knows that the medium has the ability to do things and tell stories that would be damn near impossible to tell with more conventional filmmaking. Hell, when you look at how much of a modern blockbuster is made up of digital effects, it's hard to argue that animation isn't everywhere.

By many accounts, the current and previous decade have been a golden age for the art of animation. Between some true luminaries driving the craft forward and the advent of digital animation techniques, we're living in an age where animation is everywhere and in everything. 

No doubt, a lot of this has to do with hundreds of amazing animation studios, big and small. Between giants like Pixar and smaller studios like Frederator putting out handcrafted shorts, there are a lot of choices where to get your animation from. Though there are lots of great studios, we want to know who you think is the best of the best. With that in mind, let's rank the best animation companies around.
