Technology is taking over our beauty regimens and among our treasured finds are a fiber-woven flat iron, an oscillating makeup brush, a cellulite-busting massager, an ultra-luxe electric toothbrush and a skin-firming face massager.

It's that time again--the 2017 edition of our annual Best in Black Beauty Awards has officially arrived! We've spent weeks swiping, swatching and smelling the newest products so you don't have to. From the splurge-worthy to the drugstore faves and Black-owned must-haves, these are the picks that every Black woman must know. Stay tuned as we continue to unveil this year's winners!
