That’s SO hard. I’ve become that person who LOVES specific products and finds it impossible to stay loyal to any brand. I really do love Guerlain; their releases are typically well-done with interesting colors, luxurious textures, and do innovate from time to time.

Burberry and Giorgio Armani. Burberry has the best eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks. Giorgio Armani has the best foundations, concealers and mascara. If I could pick a third, it would be Chanel and Gurelain (tied).

Burberry all the way 🙂 I mean, I like other brands, like Guerlain and Chanel, but if I’m just wantng a new lipstick or a new blush, odds are I head right to the Burberry counter. My fave products are the lip covers, lip velvets, and sheer glow (blush). I also love their powder foundation, and their mascara is really good as well. I have yet to find a product of theirs I don’t at least like very much.

I use a different brand for a different part of my face…so it is so hard to say. And the brands change quality over the years so I go into something new. I have been loyal to Urban Decay for all my eyeshadows and havent even open many of the palettes. I use Estee Lauder Lucidity foundation. Dolce and Gabanna powder foundation. Am not loyal to lipsticks though I like Dior, Dolce and Gabanna and YSL rouge pur. I have bits and pieces of everything else. And I do have Tom Fordshadows and blusher but have not open those packages either.

It’s Chanel. I just have so many memories tied to this brand! I always check out their releases first. I’ve come to love Guerlain, too!

I’m just gonna say MAC bc they make my favorite lipsticks, but this is a very hard one bc I have a fave liquid foundation from MUFE, & a fave powder from Shiseido.

Depends what is, Chanel and Nars blush, Guerlain eyeshadow and meteorites. Some brands excel at one thing and not others. I wouldn’t blush Gierlain blush or foundation. Dior is the king in foundation though.

I’d have to go with Nars.
Very few of their products have disppointed me ( soft touch shadow pencils and Hungry Heart duo anyone?) and I love their Pure Radiant TM, blushes, multiples, bronzing powders, primers, eyeshadows, liners, lip products and nail polishes.
A lot of my HG produtcs are from them, and I have a special relationship with the brand :).
Not only that, but I really like the philosophy and story behind the brand :).
So yeah, NARS ALL THE WAY 😀 (though I also really like Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Benefit and Laura Mercier 😉 )
So yeah, NARS ALL THE WAY 😀 (even though I really do like a lot

I don’t have one high end bran, after some disappointing experiences with Chanel a good number of year back (*coughs* 15-20) I had the opinion that it was all about the name and not the quality.

Recently I’ve bought some NARS, Chanel and Dior and been really happy with them all. I’m much more specific about what I buy too which helps.

Next stop is the Burberry counter but there isn’t one in my city so it will have to wait a short while.

Similar to the question about go to drugstore brands, this too is a tough one because it depends on the product. Primer – Hourglass; foundation – Guerlain; eyeshadows – anything and everything from Chanel to Nars to MAC (is MAC “high end” – I guess for some, it’s not and for other, it is). I’m not a complete devotee of any one brand and pick and choose among what’s out there to find what suits me and what I like best at the moment…

When I think high-end, I think of a line that you cannot buy in Sephora or Ulta, but rather at a department store like Saks or Neiman. For me, it’s Chantecaille. I love their products and especially that they give part of their profits of certain limited edition products to help protect endangered wildlife.

Guerlain for me too! I’ve only recently gotten into it. I used to love Chanel, but some of their collections have been disappointing (although their lipsticks and glosses are always wonderful).

Definitely MAC, other brands’ marketing is weak and the sales persons are too aggressive before I can try on the products.
