The 2015 Emily Awards are here! Hopefully you've had a chance to check out my video where I outlined my top 10 best face products of the year! I've never done an "Emily Awards Top 10" before, but I thought it might make it extra clear which products were the best of the best... while ultimately counting down to a number one product. I'll do this for my Eyes, Lips, and Finale videos also!

Still, for those seeking out some favorites in specific categories, I wanted to offer my drugstore and high end picks like I always do, here on my blog. Below you'll see the favorite products listed, as well as links that will direct you to where the item is being sold online (most "buy" links are affiliate links). I've also included "more info" links which will refer you to any videos I've done that offer more in depth information on the item.
Over the course of the 8 years I've been doing the Emily Awards, new categories are added as needed. This year there is one additional category in the Face awards, and it's for face palettes- those that might combine various shades of blush, highlight, or bronzer, for example. I've tried many palettes of this type this year, so I felt the new category was necessary!
I hope you're as excited about this new batch of Emily Awards as I am! Follow me on social media so you can stay up to date on the rest of the 2015 Emily Awards series in the coming days!
