For our first-ever Contributor Beauty Awards, we wrangled up some of our favorite products made by our most trusted brands, and dispersed them to the best panel of experts we could think of, our Contributor Network, to vote on their favorites and come up with a list of tried-and-true best products.

When it came to the best makeup products, we chose bloggers Donna Daily, Miss Maven, Look Linger Love, A Piece of Toast, and Stuff She Likes to do the judging. Several bronzers, eye shadows, and skin perfectors, later, the results poured in.

While we're still working on that final list, we thought we'd share some highlights from our featured nominees.
