same – plushlash = love love love! but i wonder if this is just because mac is so rewarding to buy…lol

same here Christine..i always wonder why people are like “Don’t even bother getting a mascara from MAC..” because my HG is plushlash too…and I always wonder what about MAC’s mascara they don’t like..

its because mascara is diffrent to everyone we all have diffrent reactions and if our lashes are like mine it will take forever to come off but i like mac’s x mascara though πŸ™‚

Well, I like lustre e/s. Usually everybody seems to hate them, but I think they are great for wrinkly lids because they (also) have an uneven texture.

I also LOVE MAC mascaras and have even recommended them to some ladies at work and they are very happy about them too!
But, I would say that the beauty product/makeup I really like that seem to always get ranted on is my EyeEnvy e/s press-ons! I wear them for “fun times” and they really work. When I wear them, I get compliments and people think that I have applied all the funky designs by hand! They are amazed when I explain the concept to them.

I seem to be one of the few who like mineralize eyeshadows. πŸ™‚ I think they’re extremely pretty and don’t find them hard to work with. I cannot tell you how excited I am about Color Craft! πŸ™‚

I love MAC lustre lipsticks. It seems a lot of people say they are sheer or don’t like the formula. But I love them — they have a gorgeous shine and they never appear sheer on me πŸ™‚

Well, Lustre lipsticks are transparent by essence so I generally fail to see why girls dislike them because of that. Why reproaching a product its particularity? It’d be like buying a matte and reproching it its lack of glossiness. Not everyone like opaque. As a matter of fact, Lustre is my absolute favorite lipstick texture at Mac! I also adore theit formula and their effect on my lips! πŸ™‚

I love lutres as well. I don’t like too much color on my lips. However, I find Lustres to be very buildable if I was more color! And no lipgloss required πŸ˜‰

I love CG Lash Blast & typically when i say that, people tend to disagree cause they hate the blunt end wand. For me, it makes my lashes amazing.

I also religiously use Smashbox’s Oil-Free Light Primer, not the silicone one. Smashbox primers don’t get a whole lot of love, but i honestly think its cause everyone thinks of the silicone one when you say the name. The one I use is 60% water based so it never causes me breakouts & I have very sensitive acne-prone skin.

I LOVE lash blast. I don’t even know what I did before it. I’ve never even though about the end of the wand. I guess it is blunt but I don’t really get why that would bother me.

I also LOVE MAC Plushlash…I have heard bad things about Dazzlelash and Zoomlash…but not too many bad things about Plushlash.

I LOVE HIP Gel Liner…many ppl say it dries out quickly…I haven’t had that problem and I have gone thru two. I use it to line my waterline and it’s the best liner I have ever used for this purpose. It has great staying power and is the blackest black.

I also love MAC mascara. I was kinda weary b/c I had heard so many people say that they hate MAC mascara, but I love my zoomlash! I plan on trying more types of MAC mascara.

Nivea Soft Cream Moisturizer and Oil of Olay Complete SPF 15, my friends wonder why I don’t use an expensive cream. Yet these work just fine for me, I can’t really justify spending a lot on face cream. Everyone also seems to not like MAC Studio Fix but its great because its simple to apply and comes in so many shades.

I LOVE Olay Complete. I’ve been using it for years and still have not found a better moisturizer. It’s simply everything I want…smooth, hydrating, spf, and cheap.

Me too! i always end up going back to my Olay and I have been using it on and off for many years. My face loves it!

Maybelline Great Lash -reg or wp. A lot of ppl put this down, but it is a great basic mascara. After using my Shu curler, Great Lash is all I need for a good tint and holding the curl (wp). I use a metal lash comb to make sure it looks perfect.

No guilt when I toss at 3 mos. A lot of HE mascaras just wasted my $ over yrs.

Aveeno cleansers & moisturizers – work well for me. Moisturizers are nice and light for summer too.

Not one product per se but as a brand, a lot of people don’t like Napoleon Perdis but I truly love his products! Although it bothers me a bit to read rants about NP, it doesn’t stop me from buying his cosmetics especially his Devine goddess lipsticks.

I’ve just thought of another one: Everyone says how weird the Givenchy Phenomen’eyes mascara is, but for me it’s one of the best mascaras ever. πŸ™‚

I like the Sweet Liason Suite Array shadow duo. Everybody hates ALL the Suite Array duos because of the texture, and granted the textures ARE terrible, but the colors have good pigmentation and are reaaaly pretty. I use the dark brown from Suite Liason as a liner topper for smokey brown eyes, and the pale yellow in sunset looks as a highlighter. The other day I applied the chocolate shade all over my lid and blended into and above the crease with Shroom. I topped the lid (keeping the crease the way it was) with Sable and it made this gorgeous, ultra-deep and dark blackened bronze with red reflects – SO pretty! I finished it with black smudged liner and Sable on the lower lashline, mascara, and nude cheeks and lips (literally nude – I only had time for shadow, liner and mascara!). It was SO great – everybody stop hatin’ on the Suite Array duos! πŸ˜‰

I really love MAC matte blushes. A TON of people are into super shimmery cheeks with the MSFs and Sheertone shimmer (which I do like as well for occasions) but I’ve always loved a matte cheek.

Also, I really love UD’s packaging. Yes, it’s kitschy, but it always gets people to look at it and play with the product. Super effective marketing and they are great products. (*with the exception of UDPP bottle).

In terms of beauty products…I have to say I LOVE my Clarisonic, which has receive alot of bad reviews apparently from people. I also CANNOT live without my Proactiv, which again, is not very popular at all.
