For me it would be Chanel, all the products I have from the brand are stellar, otherwise Ysl has great products, Guerlain and commonly also Dior. If I had to only pick one brand that would be Chanel, simply because it has never disappointed me and I love their products.

Guerlain, Chanel, and Armani are probably my top three, although I adore Burberry, Rouge Bunny Rouge, and some Japanese luxury brands as well.

Suqqu! Three! Now you’re speaking my language. I feel exactly the same way about Japanese cosmetics. Swoon!

(Speaking of which, have you tried any of the Suqqu foundations, Ryou? What did you think of them – if you don’t mind my asking?)

Illamasqua is the only high end beauty brand I’ll consistently buy from. I know they’re spot on pretty much every time, so I have no qualms spending the money. I’m hesitant to buy anything higher cost than that simply because I don’t have enough experience to know if I can take the risk on a brand.

Have to agree with Burberry! And I went ahead with your curated Le Metier set, since you think the fig shadow would work as a liner. I’m so looking forward to it!

I’ve had disappointments with every brand I’ve tried and with the higher end brands, the disappointments may be fewer but they’re also more costly! Still, I’d say it’s probably Guerlain or Hourglass. I don’t have access to (nor do I choose to pay the price of) Le Metier de Beaute. I wish Burberry, Tom Ford and Armani were more readily available to me (or maybe not….)

I don’t think there is a brand that is ALWAYS worth the splurge, I’ve had a few average products from all brands. I have had great luck with Burberry, though, every single product I have from them I would rate above average, their eyeshadows and blushes in particular. I don’t think their lipsticks are that great, but that might just be personal preference. Le Metier de Beaute is also really good (at least from what I’ve tried). Rouge Bunny Rouge is another AMAZING brand. Highly pigmented, great textures and long-lasting.

Burberry. It’s the only high end brand that never disappoints me. As a result, I’ve never had to return any Burberry purchase (and I bought plenty).

I agree. While there have been a couple of NARS products that haven’t appealed to me, I just didn’t buy them. However, everything I have decided to buy, I absolutely love.

Cannot really say one brand…because it doesnt always have everything that I like….I would say…Urban Decay for the glorious eyeshadows, Dolce N Gabanna for the lipsticks, Suquu for its decadence, Guerlain for its unique packaging and innovation, MAC for its marketing strategies to get people hooked, Tom Ford for its blushes and brushes,
