SHAPE Announces Winners of 2021 Beauty Awards
Dermatologists, Fitness Pros and SHAPE Editors Select the Best New Beauty Products for Active Lifestyles

NEW YORK, Sept. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Meredith Corporation's (NYSE: MDP) SHAPE announced the 83 top new beauty products in the 2021 SHAPE Beauty Awards, spanning categories of makeup, hair, body, face, and dermatologist picks. Since 2003, the annual Beauty Awards have been an essential resource for wellness-minded women who are equally committed to their beauty and workout routines. The 2021 Beauty Awards are available in SHAPE's October issue, on sale September 10 and at now.

"The makeup, hair, body, and skin care in this year's Beauty Awards go above and beyond for the active lifestyles that our readers lead. We've selected the lip balm that keeps us hydrated throughout the 5:00 a.m. winter trail run, the dry shampoo that works so well that you can skip a wash after Pilates, and more innovative buys that fit seamlessly into beauty and workout routines," said Editor in Chief Liz Vaccariello.

SHAPE's Beauty Awards highlight the products that stand up to an active, anything-goes lifestyle. Each winning beauty product has been tested by the SHAPE Squad, a group of fitness- and beauty-minded staffers, wellness pros and dermatologists. This group sifts through hundreds of new products launched in the previous year to highlight the top picks that create this cumulative guide. Winners have the opportunity to be a part of SHAPE's coveted Beauty Lab Box, which includes dozens of editor-approved products from top beauty and wellness brands at one affordable price. The third edition of the box is launching later this year in time for the holiday season.
