If a product were called the “Best in America,” you’d probably give it a try. But “Best in the World” sounds a whole lot better, n’est-ce pas? That’s the idea behind Marie Claire’s 29th annual Prix d’Excellence de la Beauté, which relies on the votes of an international jury of beauty journalists to choose its winners. This article appears in the May issue of Marie Claire, on newsstands now.
The Jury’s Choice: Legendary makeup artist Francçois Nars knows color, whether it’s practically invisible foundations and natural—looking blushes or bold lipsticks and bright eyeshadows that pop. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of his brand, he outdid himself with the Audacious Lipstick collection (intense full—coverage colors with a matte finish) and the Dual—Intensity Eyeshadows (shades that can be worn wet or dry for different effects). Perfectly gorgeous.

The Jury Speaks:
“This French makeup artist who started to conquer New York 20 years ago is a true success story.”

The Jury’s Choice: This new line thickens and adds density to hair by treating the scalp. Used in conjunction, the three products—a bodifying shampoo, replenishing mask, and thickening mousse—leave hair fuller and softer.
