    ◾All-time favorite makeup brand? I’m reaaaally loving The Balm lately! What great products to come onto the scene (and with such cute packaging!). I can’t be without my NUDEtude palette and my Frat Boy blush!

    ◾All-time favorite skin care brand? I’m not too picky. I just use simple products to keep my face balanced and nice. BUT, I will say that I’ve gotten some samples that were miracle workers for me. StriVectin and Claire’s Botanicals being the best I’ve ever tried. I just can’t throw down that kind of money, though.

    ◾All-time favorite nail polish brand? Easily Zoya! <2

    - fairly light (nc15/20) with light hair
    – that’s such a toughie! i would probably have to say e.l.f. overall, although i splurge often on good high-end brands like laura mercier, nars, and lancome.
    – my skin has gone through a lot of changes in the past couple years and so i’m not sure i have a clear favorite. i am still very much impressed with clinique, but murad is a close second.

    All-time favorite skin care brand? Toss up between Shiseido and Olay – both seriously good.

    All-time favorite nail polish brand? No contest – LA Girl – incredibly cheap and such a great range. I have to order them from the uS but so worth the horrendous shipping costs!
