People and TODAY Beauty Awards 2015: Full list of winners

/ Source: TODAY

While new beauty products are released every year and trends come and go (we're looking at you, bubble nails and glitter beards), one constant remains: there are too many product options!

How can you tell if one frizz-fighting serum is better than the rest? Which eye cream really does what it claims? Does that lip color work well on different skin tones? Well, that's where we come in.

We teamed up with our friends at People magazine to launch the first-ever People and TODAY Beauty Awards, featuring the best-of-the-best hair, makeup, skin and body products to buy right now. Our team of testers did the tough job of trying hundreds of lotions, serums, masks and mascaras over two weeks to bring you the 44 must-have beauty buys of 2015.

The best part? All of the items come straight from the drugstore, so there's no need to blow a paycheck on an eyeshadow palette (ahem, we found a great one for less than $20).

We take makeup pretty seriously here at TODAY. In fact, we even created an entire A-to-Z GIF guide (a "GIFtionary," if you will) cataloging the top beauty trends to try now. So you know when we call a product a "winner," we really mean it.

Body-care items are the unsung heroes of the beauty world. But you'll start rethinking items like hand cream and deodorant once you see these innovative products. (Like a groundbreaking moisturizer that works while you're still in the shower.)
