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. So, what's the best makeup brand? Vote on this list of cosmetic companies below to decide. This list includes famous name brand makeup companies, as well as more obscure names in the makeup game. From the fancy and professional to the down-to-earth and undiscovered, this list has it all! 

Makeup lovers everywhere are voting for their top favorite cosmetics brands right here. As with any product, just because something is more expensive or high end does not necessarily mean that the quality is better. Some of the best cosmetics brands are not the most expensive, but - at the same time - paying less is not always worth getting an inferior product. Because of all of these factors, it's often a good idea to perform some trial and error with the products to decide on the greatest cosmetic brand out there. Which cosmetic brand is the best for you? It may take some experimentation to answer this question, but this list of the Top 10 and beyond of makeup companies can at least serve as a starting point. 

In addition to varying in overall quality, popular brands may have their strengths and weaknesses. 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 lip balm 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. With this user ranked list of popular cosmetics brands, should you run into a dud, vote down the company so other makeup users don'€™t run into the same problem. If you don't see your favorite cosmetics brand, or the brand you feel should be included in the top rated makeup brands list, make sure to add it to the list so other cosmetics users can discover your favs. Help figure out the Number 1 brand by voting below!
