Ive been hearing a lot of buzz about Inglot and Joe Fresh, so they are both on my list of brands to try. Oh and Eyeko, we dont have all three of these brands sold here in Hawaii. Have you tried these Christine?

Joe Fresh is ok not great the nail polish is awful to work with. >_<

If you looking to Canadian brand Annabelle (and the parent brand Marcelle) runs circles around Joe Fresh.

MAC, actually – I’ve never tried it, even though it’s such a big part of this blog. I’m just completely lost at where to start!

Me too! Glad to hear I’m not the only MAC virgin. Too many beautiful choices and I’m pretty sure I’ll get addicted which my wallet can’t handle right now.

Me too! Gosh I thought I was the only one! I’m planning on starting my MAC collection very soon though, I’ve been carefully going through reviews and stuff but there is just so much out there that I wouldn’t know where to start. Any recommendations?

I’ve been collecting MAC since 1997- which are your favorite brands currently? Which products? What’s your coloring? What style of makeup do you generally prefer? I’m dramatic, so those heavy pigmented products are generally my specialty and while I have a ton of lipglass I’m one who steers toasted matte lip color

I’m a MAC virgin, too. I’m at college in rural New Hampshire so there’s no store nearby, and with so many colors to choose from I don’t want to order without seeing them first. I did get some MAC brushes last week (182, 116, 239, 217) and was blown away by the quality, so I hope to get a chance to check out the makeup soon.

guerlain, chanel, illamasqua and hourglass! i’d love to be able to test out all their products that interest me, but i can’t afford it 🙁

Ditto on Illamasqua. Ever since they came out with the Toxic Nature collection, I’ve been itching to get my hands on it.

I’m also with you on Illamasqua. I went to Sephora today to try to get my hands on some of their products, to at least see in person, but apparently they’re only stocked at “select” ones, which made me sad. I really wanted some of their nail lacquer and to have a look at the loose pigments. 🙁

AGREED @ Illamasqua! My only problem is that none of my local Sephoras seem to carry Illamasqua, YSL, or any other brand that I’ve been craving to try out!

I am so addicted! I have been using their Big shampoo, godmother, demon, and rockstar soaps, and their angels on bare skin and dark angel face wash/scrubs, and the bath bombs, oh heck, just about everything. Do it!

I’d love to explore more of Illamasqua – I have their liquid metal quad and I love it, but I’d love to branch more into nailpolish/eyeshadows/blushes/ect.

Omg! It’s my question. Hehe. 🙂

I would love to explore Shu Uemura, Giorgio Armani & Guerlain – they are expensive so its been a bit hard to get a hold of them since NARS is really my priority right now :P. Saving Fail. XD

Other brands I would love to try are the skincare lines Dermalogica and Peter Thomas Roth. They’ve got ton of AHA/BHA products.
