L'Oreal Paris Infallible Never Fail Makeup Foundation ($14, amazon.com) provided a full nine hours of coverage in GHRI tests. This SPF 18 product blended well and evened out skin tone too. It comes in 14 shades.
Keep dark circles at bay all day with Maybelline New York Instant Age Rewind Eraser Dark Circle Treatment Concealer ($10, amazon.com). In six shades, this Anti-Aging Award winner went on smoothly and provided lasting coverage. It also earned one of the highest scores for moisturization — an impressive feat when you consider that most of the competition dried out our consumer testers' skin.
Stila's Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner ($20, amazon.com) should do just that — it didn't smudge or smear when wet in GHRI tests, and our consumer testers were happy with how long this formula lasted too. In particular, we liked the felt tip pen-like applicator; all the better to apply smoothly.
MAC's Paint Pot shadows ($18, amazon.com) stayed vibrant all day in GHRI tests, without smudging or settling into eyelid creases. Our consumer testers found this Anti-Aging Award winner easy to apply and, though this color proved budge-proof, it came off readily at the end of the day.
There's a reason Maybelline New York Great Lash Waterproof Mascara ($6.16, amazon.com) has been a drugstore mainstay for years — this affordable formula stays put. It resisted smudging in GHRI tests and our consumer testers gave it high marks for its ability to volumize and separate lashes without clumping.
For "lush" lip color and a "rich" finish that will last long into the day, look no further than Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Color ($24, amazon.com). It stayed on the longest of the products in our long-wear lipstick test and — best of all — didn't dry out our consumer testers' lips.
With a wide range of shades to suit nearly any skin tone, Revlon's Just Bitten Lipstain ($8.99, amazon.com) proved a standout in GHRI tests. This marker-style stain stayed on the best of any we tested, even after a meal, and comes with a lip balm to moisturize and add a hint of shine.
