IVC Makeup & Beauty Awards 2010 ~ Best Eye Cream & Best Drugstore Foundation

I thought it would be fun to feature Makeup & Beauty Awards this year and pick the best of Makeup & Beauty products I have personally been using during and before the year 2010. 
*Mainly Indian brands (or brands widely available in India) will be nominated & brands like MAC and Clinique will NOT be a part of IVC awards (they already have enough awards on their mantles anyway)

First up are the best of Eye Creams & Drugstore Foundations.

Best Eye Cream

Nominees for best Eye Cream~ Lotus Nutraeye Rejuvenating & Correcting Eye Gel, Biotique Almond Under Eye Cream, Himalaya Under Eye Cream

Best Drugstore Foundation

Nominees for Best Drugstore Foundation ~ Revlon Colorstay Foundation Combination/Oily, Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation, L'Oreal True Match Foundation, Lakme Invisible Finish Foundation

And the winners are:
Best Eye Cream ~ Himalaya Under Eye Cream
Best Drugstore Foundation ~ Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
*Clapping* :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
