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.

Maybelline

My least favorite thing that Maybelline does is heavily scent (to the point where they sometimes result in off-tastes) their lip products. I love their lipsticks, which have always been one of their strongest areas.

Smashbox

They’re only just getting more on my radar these days, so I don’t have too much to say since I haven’t tried a slew of their products in recent years. I am a huge fan of the Smashbox 24HR Eyeshadow Primer and their Be Legendary lipstick range!

I like that they have a lot of budget-friendly products in their range, but I don’t like seeing some of their pricing on new products creep toward mid-end in price point – I feel like that goes against why they started.

Urban Decay

I love a lot of their core, permanent product ranges. I wish their palettes were more in line with the quality of the permanent range, because I feel like that’s how it used to be but is less consistent now.

I like that they announce things a few weeks prior to launch, and then launch, and it doesn’t seem to be as crazy of a process as with other brands. They seem to be improving the quality of their products, too, which is nice. I would like to see them release less palettes and offer more individual products, though, like their Glow Kits as refillable pans, because I think more people would try the brand that way.
