beauty awards header Final

In the beauty world, niche, indie brands are multiplying by the minute and in a sea of really, really great products, how do you know which are exceptional? For BLINK’s first-ever beauty awards, we decided to do all the vetting for you. We tirelessly applied, scrubbed, swiped, and dabbed for months, and sure, it’s glam, but it’s definitely not easy. Hundreds of products later, we present the best of the very best.
