    Best brand for skincare: Chanel..I once made the mistake of trying to switch to Neutrogena..never again!

  10. Bright colors-depends on the finish.

    Bright matte-Make up forever, Stars Makeup Haven
    shimmery-MAC, Urban Decay, Stars makeup Haven
    OMG SPARKLY-Fyrinnae

    Neutral-MAC. Maybe Urban Decay with some more shimmery options.

    Skincare, I really don’t use one brand. I’ve found a few brands with a decent product I love, but the others are “meh”. I don’t think I own any two skincare products from the same brand.

  11. What’s the best brand for bright colors?
    What’s the best brand for neutral colors?

    I actually like the variety of colors offered by Mac. But I would say that Urban Decay probably has brighter brights, while Bobby Brown is the queen of neutrals.

    What’s the best brand for skincare?
    Estee Lauder is the best for me. Advanced Night Repair serum is the best invention since sliced bread.

  12. Annika

    Bright: MAC
    Neutral: MAC (They do both very well IMO!)
    Skincare: Avene for face, LUSH for body (and hair!)

  26. Brights: Urban Decay, especially their Deluxe shadows. They are so smooth, blendable, and bright.

    Neutrals: I don’t actually own a ton of neutrals but I like Urban Decay’s collection of neutrals too. Sin is amazing.

    Skincare: Honestly, I’d say Aveeno. I have really sensitive skin and I like their products, especially the calming moisturizer with feverfew.

    * What’s the best brand for bright colors?
    I don’t wear bright colour, so I really can’t tell.

    * What’s the best brand for neutral colors?
    I think MAC has a gorgeous range of neutrals, but NARS and Bobbi Brown also have really nice options.

    * What’s the best brand for skincare?
    I absolutely love Bobbi Brown skincare. Kiehl’s also makes some awesome products, and at the moment I’m trying NARS’ skincare line and so far I’m really pleased.

    Bright colours : It’s a tie between Shu Uemura, MUFE and Urban Decay. I’ve never really been impressed by M.A.C.

    Neutral colours: NARS and Bobbi Brown do great neutrals, but I’m really starting to appreciate Lancome

    Skincare : Haven’t found a great one, but Chanel is pretty good.

    _ bright : sugarpill right now
    _ neutral : MAC
    _ skincare : Lush

  66. Karla A

    MAC? Are y’all kidding? Have you tried other make up brands? MAC shadows are pretty poor performers as a whole, minus their matte2 and veluxe pearl shades. And the amount of product you get for the price is silly.

    Best bright colors: Urban Decay
    Best Neutrals: Bobbi Brown or Stila!

    I like the consistency of Stilas better, but the Bobbi Brown chrome collection was stunning.

    Skincare: Retin-A micro. That’s it!

  68. Bright colors – MAC (2nd is Urban Decay)
    Neutral colors – Bobbi Brown
    Skincare – There is no one brand that have it all but I have the best luck with DHC so far(Japanese brand)

  69. alice

    For e/s, the best brand for both brights and neutrals, in my opinion, is MUFE. Second, Illamasqua and MAC. For blush in all colors, I like Illamasqua. I don’t wear super bright lip colors, but I don’t like lipstick lines with boring shades which all look alike, so I pick Shiseido, Givenchy, Guerlain.

  70. tuesdayschild

    Brights: MUFE and Illamasqua- ftw
    Neutrals: I’ll love my custom MAC neutral palette forever but Bobbi Brown IS neutrals
    Skincare: I have a lot of philosophy- it’s prob not the best out there, but I’m in total lust with the Purity Made Simply cleanser
