Award season may be a wrap over in Hollywood, but we like to bring out the big guns (and the fancy dresses) in the spring. That’s when ELLE Canada and ELLE Quebec reveal their top beauty products in our annual Beauty Grand Prix awards, featured in our May 2012 issue. For the record, this is no rinky dink survey. We hand the editorial reigns to nearly 975 of our readers, and ask them to review and test out 212 unmarked products from
skin care to makeup to haircare. Once they’ve smushed, blended and spritzed in a month-long product party, we have them tell us which ones were the real standouts. 40 winners emerge from the bunch to appear in the magazine.
