Good evening guys!

Today, REDBOOK magazine announced its winners of the year’s best new beauty products at the 2013 MVP Awards breakfast!

More than 400 products were tested by an elite team of beauty and skincare experts, (all listed below!). They narrowed the field of products down to 43 winners—the most effective, groundbreaking newcomers for Makeup, Nails, Body, Fragrance, Skin and Hair. 

“All of our judges are top experts in their fields, so they’re the ultimate demanding beauty consumers. If they’re wowed by a product, we know it will make our readers happy,” said REDBOOK Editor-in-Chief Jill Herzig, in a press release.

The winning products are featured in the June issue, on newsstands already, and available online at http://www.redbookmag.com/mvpawards
