ICYMI: We teamed up with TODAY to bring you the 2015 PEOPLE and TODAY Beauty Awards, which highlight the best drugstore beauty buys of the year! Over the next few days, we’ll be revealing the winners in every category: hair, makeup, skin and body. And now it’s time to clear your vanities for the coolest makeup on the market right now!

For the awards, more than 40 very willing and able testers — from both PEOPLE and TODAY — tried hundreds of products, including makeup, skincare, haircare and more, with a quest to find the absolute best drugstore products of the year. And after weeks of wearing multiple foundations — simultaneously (!) — to work, swiping on dozens of mascaras in-between meetings and sleeping in not one but two eye creams, we’ve narrowed down the lot to 44 favorites. Since today’s reveal is all about the makeup winners, we’ve rounded up a few of our favorite skews of the bunch:

L’Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Nude: This shadow palette is filled with 10 highly-pigmented nude shades that will take you from daytime gorg to date-night glam instantly. Oh, and did we mention it’s just under $20?

CoverGirl the Super Sizer by LashBlast Mascara:
A mascara that plumps and lengthens lashes in just a couple of coats? Sign us up!

Flower Transforming Touch Powder-to-Crème Blush:
Drew Barrymore is the beauty genius behind this insanely cool blush, which changes from a powder to cream formula, and gives cheeks a pretty pop of color as you tap it on.
