Because I have a lot of makeup from various brands that I like, if I had to give up MAC, for example, or Stila, I still have more than enough “stuff” from other brands and could probably manage for months! In fact, it might help me “discover” and actually enjoy the other products I have even more. Sort of “forced downsizing”.

Me, too. Infinitely. I’d just use the other stuff. My fave brand is Inglot, because I’m into eyeshadows. At one point i said i’ll only buy inlgot eyeshadows, but that’s rubbish. I’ve bought others since and love most of them.

Interesting question. I could survive for sure, but I would miss some of my favorites! I ry to do this in general, i.e. go without my favorites to reacquaint myself with others. Like Mariella said, “forced downsizing” – I like it!

LOL – do we all need professional help or WHAT??? Besides, the question wasn’t even “favourite product”, it was “favourite brand” so even if I could pinpoint a fave brand (MAC, for example), while I’d have to forego some eye shadows, a concealer, a blush and some lipsticks and foundation, I’d still have all those products from other lines and I’ve got a lot of great eye shadows that aren’t MAC. So I might miss Mulch, Prepped for Glamour and Sweet Satisfaction but I’d still have plenty of eye shadows I would be perfectly happy using.

For me a week, I could use my Mac and Ysl lipsticks along with other brands, but I couldn´t be without my favorite Chanel products for more than a week, I love the brand a lot.

Hard question. I have a lot of favorite products from a range of brands. The hardest product to give up would be foundation. I really like the finish of the Tarte Amazonian Clay foundation and I have more Tarte products that I love in all categories (great blushes, eyeshadows, brow mousse, bronzer, highlighter) than any other brand but I have enough makeup that I could easily stop using my Tarte products for a long time.

I picked a day solely on not being able to live without my favourite Maybelline mascara. For everything else, I like the brands I own pretty equally and could give any one of them up for some time.

I could manage. It’s makeup. I love it, it’s something that I really enjoy playing with but it’s not like I couldn’t live without anything. And if it’s just “my favorites” then I’ll just get by with other stuff.

A week without Guerlain would sadden me because it’s so much a part of my routine now. But I could do it because I have so many others to chose from. In fact, it’s probably a good idea to make myself use somethings that are being neglected. All I know is…..I have TOO MANY eye shadows!!

I probably have enough options that I could get by, though if I gave up certain brands I’d have a much more limited range of colours. This question actually made me think about how many products I need to get more use out of.

Maybe a couple of weeks. If I had to give up MAC I could get by with UD and Benefit for eyes and Smashbox for face but I’d pretty much have no lipsticks to wear as all of them expect 3 are MAC.
