***This is an AIMB exclusive, almost. The list aint out online yet ! You heard it first !***

Last night Vogue India celebrated their first Beauty awards show announcing the winners in various beauty / makeup categories. The event was attended by a host of celebrities including my favorite Indian model - Lakshmi Menon !

The selection process wasn't an easy one. Over 1000 products were tested by experts from the industry who then cast their votes, shortlisted 583 products. Then a panel of 11 expert judges went on to select 79 winners in 8 categories !

The panel of expert judges included many popular Bollywood actresses like Malaika Arora Khan, jewelery designers like Queenie Dhody, skin care experts, makeup artists including Mickey Contractor and of course the Vogue team.

how can they award a particular shade as well, like nc43 for the mac studio fix powder?

I love your blog , have been reading it for a while now.
Can you please do a feature on the products that are free of animal testing ?
You can find a list of the companies that DO test on animals here http://www.caringconsumer.com/pdfs/companiesDoTest.pdf

and you will find out that most of the products that are featured on many blogs are made by these companies . I hope we can all raise awareness for this issue and have access to cruelty free beauty products.

Good luck !

I too would love to see the whole list. British Vogue and French Vogue are available in my local B&N but not Vogue India (yet? one can only hope! ;)

It's an odd list isn't it? 6 awards for lipsticks but only 1 for lipgloss? Don't they come in shades too?
And Mickey Contractor for best artist. He seems totally worthy, but wasn't he also on the panel of judges?

Hi Rima & Ki !

First thing that struck me too - NC 43 - how and why ? I will try and find out more on this but meanwhile if I had to make a guess I'd say - may be it was a shade that was most flattering on a large number of people ? Something along these lines...

Hi Suzanne !

I assume the 13 judges were judging different things - as in they were all not part of the entire process. I am guessing they were in groups - some doing this some that...
