Guerlain–a lot of my favorite base products are from Guerlain (foundation, powder, finishing), which are the kind of products I could see myself using a lot and for many years. I’ve also really fallen for some of their limited edition blushes/highlighters. Most of their products are good, even if they’re not my ALL-time favorite every single time, it would be no hardship to use strictly Guerlain. Thank goodness this is hypothetical and I can use forty different brands instead 🙂

Probably MAC. There is something in every category from MAC that I love. I certainly wouldn’t want to have to use their products exclusively, but it wouldn’t be a bad brand to be stuck with!

NARS. I feel I’ve wasted so much time & money on other brands. It’s not that I don’t like any of them, I just don’t reach for them as often.

Hard question to answer, but mine would probably be Guerlain too. I’ve fallen in love with Lingerie de Peau, I can’t even think of trying other foundations. Plus, the brand already has the basics covered, what more can I ask for? 🙂

Urban Decay. Or Tarte. But probably Urban Decay, I find that I really am drawn to a lot of their products.

Has to be Dior for me, it just feels good for the skin pretty and subtle, just suits my skin and color

I didn´t even need to think my answer for one second, for me it would forever be Chanel no matter what. Adore all their lipsticks, great blushes, I don´t use a mascara by Chanel currently but I have a sample of one of their mascaras that I find nice. Good concealers, great lipglosses, some gorgeous nail polishes, and some really nice perfumes. Yes for me it will forever be Chanel 😀 .

Ooh – I’ve seen Suqqu eyeshadows and brushes on blogs (they look amazing), but do you also use Suqqu base products, mascara, lip color?

When I really think about it, I have to say Chanel. MUFE is my favorite brand, but all-around I’d rather use Chanel the rest of my life for the eyeshadows and blushes which I prefer over MUFE.

Mac or Urban decay! The down side to mac would be they don’t do a great liquid liner. The down side to UD is the blushes/bronzers I am not a fan of.

Urban Decay. I like the fluidity of their foundation but I absolutely love the color range of their eye pencils and eyeshadows. I haven’t tried their blush though, so I’d probably have to resort to pinching my cheeks for color!

Also did you hear about Le Metier de Beaute’s beauty vault vip program? I was wondering if you were thinking of subscribing?

I would say either YSL or Chanel, because I love most of their products and they both have HG products for me. If I should choose between the two, it would probably be Chanel.

If it wasn’t for the fact the MAC make terrible foundations I would have said them because my fave blushes, eyeliners, eyeshadows, face powders are all MAC. But seeing as I can’t wear no foundation in work I’d have to say Urban Decay. Love their Naked foundation and eyeshadow and the new lipsticks look fab.

Guerlain. I like their foundations, lipsticks, mascara, and nearly all products from Terracota range. This is more than I need in daily makeup.
Or KIKO, if I had less money – good quality for lower price.

Bobbi Brown, I am in love with her powders, foundations, lipsticks and glosses. No other brand addresses the needs of Indian women.

If we’re also including skincare, Clinique. The only moisturizer that calms my sensitive skin is Clinique, and I generally like the quality of their products.

If we’re not including skincare, Shiseido.
