I use:

Rimmel for my foundation/blush

Mac for my eye shadow and eye liners

Loreal for my mascara

And Revlon for my lip products

And I like to try new products, so I shop around alot.

Depending on the season, I switch back and forth between MAC and Avon mineral powder foundation.

I use MAC! Specifically, I use the mineralize line of foundation and loose powder.  I am a fair skin redhead and I think in terms of color match, Mac has the best options because they offer warm and cool colors!

I also use the mineralize blush, highlighter and eyeshadow.

If you are looking for heavy coverage, the MAC studio scuplt (sp) is absolutely beautiful!

I have tried almost every brand but Mac is far and out the best in my opinion.

I’m all over the place. I’ve tried hundreds of products and these are my favorites right now. 

– Revolon Colorstay for foundation (if I even USE foundation, most of the time I stick with tinted moisturizer by Philosophy or Aveeno) and lipstick.

– PUR Minerals powder.

– Benefit primer, bronzer, highlighter, and concealer. Their mascara is pretty good too but I get the same effect for a smaller price with a drug store brand. But clearly I love benefit.

– Clinique blush or NARS.

– Urban Decay’s naked pallete for every day, every time. 

– Maybelline Falsies mascara.

I religiously use bareMinerals for my foundation but I try all different brands (drugstore and high end) for everything else.

Clinique for pretty much everything. I’ve tried a few others – but my skin is incredibly sensitive, so I need something that I’m not terribly allergic to. If any bees have any other suggestions for sensitive skin, let me know – always want to try, but don’t want to waste money!

Mostly MAC, but a few items from Sephora, Urban Decay, and Smashbox.  I’m definitely a MAC girl, though!!

I use Stila foundations (might switch to Tarte), Alba moisturizer, some vegan powder from Etsy (which I won’t continue-too shimmery and will go back to Smashbox), I also use a lot of Sephora and Two Faced eyeshadows and palettes.

Every make up I have is checked to be cruelty-free (make-up manufactured in Europe is cruelty-free because cosmetic animal testing in Europe is banned) Laughing

I’m trying to go for more natural products as well it’s just hard to switch.

Bare Escentuals/Minerals all the way. It’s natural make up and has completely changed the texture and look of my skin!
