The 252 finalists were chosen from a pool of more than 1,000 entries and 500 brands; the awards also saw a 10% increase in indie entrants. Additionally, five categories have been added for 2018: Indie Hair, Nutricosmetic Product, Niche Fragrance, Packaging Innovation and the first ever supplier award, Formula Innovation.

“For more than two decades, the CEW Beauty Awards continue to be a primary resource for consumers to help navigate the crowded beauty aisles. There are countless products that launch each year across all categories. The products that become finalists are voted on by the industry – those who know the best in beauty,” said CEW president Carlotta Jacobson. “Further, the breadth of innovation makes these awards even more important to consumers, who use them as another indicator as to what’s best in the marketplace.”

The awards were held May 18, 2018 at the Beauty Awards Luncheon, at the New York Hilton Midtown in New York City.
