I feel like the brand has a good position in the marketplace, so they have strong offerings across categories, even though not everything is a winner and they do make some real misses. I like that it is a more creative brand, and they seem to try to make enough for everyone, too, even with LE launches.

Lancome

I’ve been really disappointed with their eyeshadows for the last year or two, and it doesn’t seem like the quality is changing (it’s only getting worse). They are still strong when it comes to lip products, and I love their Bi-Facil for removing makeup!

MAC

They really do release too much product; I think that with other brands ramping up their own release schedules and just the reality of having even more brands on the map… MAC’s launches are more overwhelming now than they used to be (though I think they’re still putting about the same amount of products, which is a lot but doesn’t actually feel increased over the years). I wish they’d scale back the launches, stop releasing limited edition formulas, and expand more of their core ranges.

Bobbi Brown

I’d like to see more innovation in the range, and I’d like to see a lot less of the same types of palettes releasing each season–why not create a few really great, core palettes instead? I love the Luxe Lip Colors, High Shimmer Lipglosses, and highlighters!

L'Oreal

I love their Infallible Eyeshadows, Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners, and their nail polishes; those are the products that immediately come to mind! I also think that some of their skincare is underrated.

Make Up For Ever

The rant? No names!! I need names! I can’t remember numbers at all as product names. Otherwise, I love their more streamlined product ranges (one type of eyeshadow, divided into finishes, for example) that offer lots of shade variety. I also like that their base products are more inclusive than the average brand.
