Chanel

These days, I don’t have many rants for Chanel. I’d like them to be more consistent in the quality of their special edition palettes, as there have been some real misses and at $80+, that shouldn’t occur. They have excellent shipping/packaging (the best) and one fo the better loyalty programs (it’s like a hidden feature – I get free overnight on all orders, and I’ve received random full-sized products in the mail as a thank you). I wish their products weren’t scented, though.

Dior

I’d love for them to stop scenting their products so heavily (some of their lip products have a slight taste as a result!). I’d also love to see them stop reformulating their ranges every other year, as it makes it confusing as to what is still good/bad/the same. I think their foundations tend to wear well and look great on the skin, and they have made some beautiful highlighters. Their eyeshadows have been weaker for the last several years, but they have been making some improvements.

Clinique

The one product I really love are their Cheek Pops, but I haven’t loved much else (eyeshadow/lip products) in the same vein. I like their skincare, and I think it’s effective without being too pricey.

Kat Von D

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.
