Beautiful Beginnings with Maybelline

What was the first Maybelline product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: I love their new Color Tatoo range! It’s great to see so many colorful shades available. I wish I could track down the new limited edition shades. I’ve always liked their Full ‘n’ Soft mascara (it was a go-to for years), as well as their gel eyeliner and lipsticks.

Beautiful Beginnings with Kiehl’s

What was the first Kiehl’s product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Though I may not review the brand very often, I actually use numerous products on a regular basis, and it’s one of the few brands I repurchase from. It’s an affordable, practical range of effective skincare products. Right now, I have a Kiehl’s body wash, Creme de Corps, body sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer all in rotation.

Beautiful Beginnings with Fresh

What was the first Fresh product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: I think the first product I ever tried was their Sugar lip balm, which feels really nice going on, but never lasted all that long on me – I felt like I went through a tube pretty quickly! I like their skincare though.

Beautiful Beginnings with Laura Mercier

What was the first Laura Mercier product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: The first product I remember trying was an eyeshadow quad called Tuxedo, which was basically a smoky gray/black smoky eye kind of palette. I really liked her Shimmer Blocs, though – pretty to look at and full of shimmer! Now, I’m a huge fan of her lip products, which seem to fly under the radar a bit, but they can pack some pigment!

Beautiful Beginnings with Le Metier de Beaute

What was the first Le Metier de Beaute product you ever tried?  Did it pave way for a real romance or did it put you off the brand entirely?  What was the first product you purchased?  Did you love it? Hate it? Still own it?

my answer: Lipgloss was my first love! I remember being in NYC and going through one of the high-end stores (maybe it was Barney’s?) and spotting the counter. I had never heard of the brand before, and let me tell you – $35+ for a gloss at that time was a big deal for me! I loved, still love the gloss, and generally find the brand to be very, very good. They don’t have a lot of products, but they have excellent products. It’s still hard for me to bring myself to shell out $95 for their Kaleidoscopes even though I know it’s a good deal.
