Temptalia Asks You

What beauty brands do you keep up with? Even if you don’t necessarily buy from them?

Temptalia's Answer.

As many as I can! I do tend to lean towards high end, though ;)

  1. Anitacska

    Too many to list, but mainly high end too, incl. Dior, YSL, Givenchy, Estee Lauder, Guerlain, Chantecaille, Mac, etc.

  2. MAC, Dior, Chanel, and YSL — only because these are readily available in my country. Or else I would be following NARS and Urban Decay too.

  3. Tamara

    I keep up with Mac–which is really the brand I buy, Urban Decay, Opi, Essie, and Zoya. I do receive emails from Origins, Lancome, Coastal Scents, and Estee Lauder, but, rarely if ever buy from them.

  4. ..amy..

    I wouldn’t really say I ‘keep up’ with them as in always knowing what they have but I do tend to look at the mac site a lot and know about upcomming launches via temptalia of course and I peek at urban decay if they show something cute n an email

  5. Nathalie

    Always the same for me:

    - Mac (eyeshadow, eyeliner gel, lipgloss, lipstick, powder)
    - Yves Saint Laurent (eyeshadow, khôl)
    - Chanel (“Le Blanc” face base, lipstick)
    - Sisley (khôl, eyeshadow, porcelaine foundation)
    - Shiseido (pressed powder, cream eyeshadow)
    - Estée Lauder (lipstick)
    - Dior (transparent foundation, perfume)
    - Benefit (ooh la lift)
    - OPI, Essie, China Glaze, Zoya and Bourjois (very good French brand) for nail polishes

  6. MAC, Lancome, Chanel & Dior

  7. Daisy

    Just MAC. But I has this blog in my RSS, so I am bound to pick up on new products from a lot of other brands.

  8. I always keep up with Urban Decay and Too Faced. Occasionally I’ll check in with MAC, despite not owning any or being able to afford any!

  9. Galen

    MAC, Urban Decay, Cargo, Laura Geller, and The Body Shop.

  30. Meagan Elizabeth

    Smashbox! And since I’ve been reading your blog, MAC too :)

  31. Rachel

    Dior. MAC. Shu Uemura. Lancome. Chanel.

  32. MAC, Dior, Chanel, Bobbie Brown, MUFE, and other High End Brands

  33. MAC and Urban Decay, but starting to get hooked to Benefit and NARS. I am constantly reading the reviews on Sephora to find out what might be the next big thing.

  34. cmferrets

    MAC (of course everything exspecially their lipstick) , urban decay (i have all thier palettes and their e/s is so soft, oh and ofcorse their 24/7 eyeliners and eyeliner glitter), bare minerals (i like their sets, and i love their Buxom ligloss), maybe some NARS for ther blush (but their way too expensive, MUFE just b/c of their pretty wild color selecton. and i just found a good drugstore CVS brand Milani (their eyeshadows are really pretty with good color payoff). I used to like clinique when i was younger but not anymore- i only like their skincare.I am interested in trying the laura gellar e/s and face mineralized stuff( they look and feel so pretty). Ive never tried any high end brands though- chanel, Lancome, shu umera, dior, YSL. I dont understand the hype about stila, too faced and boby brown brands. Bath and body works, the body shop and philosophy for some good smellies!
    For nailpolishes- OPI , and China glaze(recently got into it).
    The places i shop are at sephora, ulta, CVS, or at the department stores or the online websites.
    I find everything about eveything on Temptalia daily- i have no life right now b/c im a new grad RN waiting for hospital responses.

  35. Vee

    HE – MAC, Laura Mercier, Korres, Paul & Joe,

    D/S – Quo, Annabelle

  36. Luda

    I don’t descriminate!! :) I follow all make up because it is the love of my life. haha (kidding) But I do try to keep up with everything starting from drugstore to La Prairie.

    Mac, Chanel, Nars, Dior, Urban Decay and Makeup Forever are the brands I can’t do without.

  38. Arika BH

    Just MAC, NARS, and Dior . I really only buy MAC but I dream about NARS and Dior.

  39. Ali

    MAC! and chanel, the main two i actually buy. some others like too faced and urban decay, but i only use one or two specific products from them (like UDPP). all other high end ones, but more for entertainment rather than actually buying them. im still waiting to hear about the new Dolce and Gabbana line from anyone!

    Just MAC, I think they’ve got a lot of exciting, interesting, original, etc. news, or products coming up compared to other brands

  44. Meta

    I follow mostly MAC, NARS and shu uemura. Not so much MAC now given that they tend repeat their collections abit; eg, spring collections tend to be pastel-y colours, summer collections, bronzer, stronger warm colours, etc.
