  1. sprut

    clinique is my achilles heel

  2. Bobbi Brown. I hope that doesn’t mean I’m getting old! Her stuff always seems so sleek and polished, while still having just enough sparkle and color to be fun. I always go to the counter intending to buy ONE item, and walk away with 7 or 8.

  3. Misty

    MAC Cosmetics because its gorg!

  4. Jenny

    NARS. It’s all just so gorgeous and I always find new things that I want.

  5. hi

    MAC, of course! The cool collections always give me something new to look at, the products are always promising, and I LOVE! the looks from each collection.

    MAC… i think for a student, it’s one of those more affordable high end brands that doesn’t rocket sky high. and because i’m mostly into e/s, pigments and blushes, i don’t have to care about the complaints many people have had about the foundations and whatnot 😀

  7. Philosophy always gets my attention.

  8. Christine

    UM MAC…my friend always says they could be selling shit and Id still buy it bc im such a mac addict!

  9. Anitacska

    I don’t buy make up just for the brand name, but certain brands ALWAYS have gorgeous products, like Dior, Guerlain, Chantecaille, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, etc. So I get sucked in because of the products, but it’s usually the same brands.

  10. Urban Decay! Never fail to dissapoint me with their amazing range of colours they bring out for their products! & Their packaging is lush! x

  11. cloudburst

    MAC and Shu Uemura – Shu Uemura has the best brushes & eyeshadow and MAC always has so many collections!

  12. JeanMarie

    Urban Decay because of the bright colors
    NARS because of the amazing quality
    MAC because of the packaging
    & sometimes Benefit because of the smart product names

  13. Lush, because mostly I’m so very satisfied with their products. And Guerlain, because I love most of their perfumes AND those wonderful makeup designs.


    Chanel… but their collections are smaller than others and less frequent than MAC, so lately I’ve been kinda bored with them.

  15. LaKiesha

    benefit because i love their packaging, quality, color selection, and cute product names. i always find myself reaching for my benefit products the most.

  16. Diyana

    NARS!!! nomnomnomnomnom I am absolutely in love with the pigmentation, the buttery softness, blendability and staying power of its products.

  17. Definitely MAC… They never fail to disappoint me! And all the new collections are just the kiss of death!

  18. Bei

    For skin care, I look for technology. So department brands or medical brands. For colors, I look for package/reputation – MAC, Bobbi Brown, Givenchy, Guerlain are my choices. :)

  19. fuzz

    Mac always and second would be nyx.I think for the price u cant go wrong.

  20. M.A.C. and Urban Decay for the bright colors and awesome pigments.
    However, I’m starting to branch out to the Make Up For Ever collection.

  21. charmy

    Make Up For Ever!!

  22. reesa

    MAC, Bobbi Brown, Nars, and Guerlain.

  23. Norma

    Mac! I am so addicted to it. My 10 year old says that I can’t go to the mall without taking a trip to the Mac store..

  24. Dawn

    MAC of course. I do really like Urban Decay now. I like Dior and Nars but I can’t afford it. No Way I’m paying 24 bucks for lipstick when I can get similar shades and quality for 14 bucks!

  25. Emma

    mac: once u get ur first mac product, u immediately get addicted and just wanna buy more and more. especially the cool collections
    stila: The packaging is just so cute, and i can even get it at a discount on
    Nars: amazing quality and suuuper pigmented.

  26. Crystal

    MAC, though I would love to try some more NARS stuff. The pictures draw me in, but the price scares me away.

  27. Susie

    Mac-variety, price is right
    Chanel-Quality, innovativeness, lately they have fallen off that
    Guerlain-their packaging in phenominal
    Dior-the quality is amazing, does exactly what I want it to do

  28. Kate

    M.A.C. and Stila

  29. Benefit! They never cease to amaze me with their gorge colours and cute packaging!

  30. Ashley

    MAC, Make Up For Ever and NARS. Oh and Urban Decay and Gosh. I love them all! I can’t choose! Haha

  31. Julia

    MAC. I’m addicted to it :-)

  32. marand313

    MAC!!! Although I want; no, need to have some of those NARS blushes! lol

  33. For sure Stila. Quality products!

  34. diana

    Smashbox,Stilla,MAC,Bobbi Brown,and NARS

  35. Rio

    Probably Makeup Forever, which is unfortunate, because their eyeshadow doesn’t agree with me. I love their colors! I can use their eyelashes though. I also love Urban Decay’s colors.

  36. Jenny

    Makeup Forever and Nars. I love Makeup Forever’s foundations.. the face & body foundie gives me a nice dewey look in the winter and their matte foundie help combat my oily-proned skin in the summer! And I also love Nars eyeshadows and blushers.. very pigmented and stunning.

  37. Kat Von D simply because of the packaging!

  38. Ashley

    BE and Urban Decay are my favorite so far. I haven’t had the chance to try a lot of MAC, although I want too. I’ve heard amazing things about it.

  39. Bona

    MAC, Chanel and Dior!

  40. kat

    Used to be MAC but I’m just overwhelmed with how much LE they are pushing out now! I prefer Benefit and Lancome now haha!

  41. JANE_m

    MAC ^__^
    n’ lately im gettin into too faced products, they’re soooo cute!

  42. Ruth

    Guerlain & Nars always sucker, oops ! I mean pull me in !

  43. MAC, NARS

    Sometimes Urban Decay, but I can’t buy that in Singapore.

  44. MAC…i also love those ‘kit’ concepts of stila, smashbox and UD.
    NARS i like the blush i chk if any new is coming…:)

  45. Gina

    MAC, NARS, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Dior for me! oh, and Coastal Scents!

  46. Kayc

    I would have to say:

    MAC – just my all-time addiction; good quality for an affordable price

    Dior – i looove their quint shadow palettes.. amazing quality and definitely worth the money

    Urban Decay – great pigmentation on their shadows and lipsticks, and very good overall product quality

    NARS – hate their lipsticks but love everything else!

    Clinique – may be ignored by some people but they have great lipsticks (creamy, moisturizing, good staying power)

  47. Christy

    MAC, NARS & Chanel. Chanel comes in such beautiful packaging and it matches my sunglasses. MAC always has something beautiful out. NARS always has some oh so gorgeous eyeshadow or blush coming out. Gah, I need to go on a makeup ban!

  48. I’d say Urban Decay and Too Faced because I love their fun packaging. I used to love Hard Candy but it seems like they’re going under.

  49. KaylaK

    MAC, Clinique, Nars, Urban Decay, and Prescriptives, those are my many weak spots!

  50. DaniMae

    M.A.C. hands down. I addicted.

  51. Cat

    You mean besides MAC?
    It would have to be UD, MUFE, Stila and I have been getting more and more into Nars.

  52. Jackiejaci

    one word: NARS!

  53. Macaddict

    MAC, MAC, MAC!!! But also NARS, Make Up Forever, and some Urban Decay. Chanel has become boring as of late…

  54. MAC and Lunasol, and recently Givenchy!

  55. anna jane posequit

    shu uemura and sugar baby .

  56. bobby carlos

    piolo pascual on his pictorial on chalk magazine craves for mac . we were shocked with his wisdom .

  57. bobby carlos

    make up artist like me would prefer make up with concealer .

  58. elle

    MAC is my weakness. I get so much of it because I just love the colours and the quality of the products.
