Probably NARS. I love that they tend to stick to smaller collections. It seems like the products in the collections are always very cohesive and go along with the theme well. In addition, I love that it’s so much more chill to get a new NARS product. It’s not going to cause panic and worry that the items will sell out in minutes. Often times, NARS will add products from collections to the permanent lineup, which is cool. I think NARS has a lot of great products, too, obviously.

The only thing that puts me off a little about the brand is the times I have e-mailed, I have never received a response back. Kind of annoying, but at least I don’t get rude responses back or the fake BS “we care” attitude, which drives me even more insane. Like the other day, I e-mailed MAC PRO and received a snotty response from the regular MAC site to contact MAC PRO. I have hated the sites ever since they tried to combine the two sites. Ok, off the tangent, lol.

I loved all your points about NARS! Sorry they never emailed you, but have you checked your spam? I’ve emailed them before from my old Yahoo account, and I realized a week later that I DID get a response within 48 hours.

Yeah, I’ve checked, they just have never e-mailed back. It doesn’t deter me from the brand at all, but I am big on customer service, so that kind of stuff just irks me a little and rubs me the wrong way. Still love the brand overall, though! πŸ™‚ I’m definitely a NARS blush hoe!

Probably Guerlain for me, too, come to think of it – the quality of their lipsticks and highlighters puts them at a slight advantage to my other choices, which would be Chanel, Burberry, or Givenchy. I love an elegant brand image!

NARS or Kat Von D – I love NARS’ seasonal collections and how they don’t make the products SO limited that they sell out literally within minutes. I’m not into tattoos or anything but I’ve really been liking Kat Von D’s new palettes and lipsticks, really bright, fun colors!

Estee Lauder or Aveda. I feel so in love with Estee Lauder again over the past year and I love how their collections are usually so well conceived. Aveda… sigh… generally speaking kinda sucks at eyeshadow but I’ve always loved the brand so much and in the PAST they used to actually be groovy (actual bright eyeshadows, strange metallic creams and eye pencils that looked like Silver Ring by MAC), I’d like to bring that “groovy” back to the brand a little πŸ™‚

MAC, I think there’s more freedom in collections away from their normal aesthetics.. maybe bring back the mega metals shadows in palette form.. really elegant looking palettes like formal black..

For a non make-up brand I’d like to partner with Coach. Their colours and textures just wow me everything.

For a make-up brand I’d like to partner with Hard Candy. One reason would be that everyone could afford to buy something or the entire line and they do have some interesting products and colours.

MAC or TooFaced, most likely because the quality would be good and the products would be more widely affordable (I was eyeing Guerlain’s Cruel Gardenia yesterday but no way can I justify spending that much on a shiny face powder, however pretty).

Either Mac or Chanel. Mac because I feel that more people are bound to buy it, and Chanel because it’s classy, and I just love Chanel! πŸ™‚

Seeing that the make up collection I’d partner up for would be entirely centered around my freakishly pale skin (think: N 5 or even lighter) I’d love to work with some brand that makes good foundations. Unfortunately none of the commonly popular foundations work on me, so I can’t really say… I guess it’d either be Chanel or Guerlain though.

Woohoo, second question of mine that’s made it! ;D

That being said, this is a hard one for me to answer. I think I’d like to do a spring collection with Dior or a holiday collection with Chanel.

Dior spring: I’d have three Rouge Dior lipsticks, as I adore them to no end. One would be a shimmer, another a cream, and the last one a matte. I think one would need to be a bit of a duochrome that straddles the line between ladylike spring and very bold summer colors. And I would want a new fragrance after my name, ahem. (I’m a huge Dior junkie, but I can’t find ONE perfume from them that agrees with my skin! Maybe the perfume would be permanent.) I would also create a peach blush duo, with one a shimmer and the other a matte, so you could be set for day or night. I’m thinking the blushes would have a gel/cream consistency, sort of like Buxom’s Stay There shadows.

Chanel holiday: I think Chanel + gemstones = Christmas magic, lol, so that would be my theme. Two eyeshadow quads would be a play on amethysts and topaz. Nail polish colors would have a liquid shine, and would be layerable; a shimmery sheer platinum over a vinyl-looking garnet.

Probably MAC. Overall it’s my favourite brand and I just love what the brand stands for (actualy artistry) as well as the products. I was disappointed by their collections last year but Shop MAC & Cook MAC look pretty good, and I love MAC’s collections usually, I can just see myself designing super cute packaging and gorgeous new shades!
Otherwise, probably Urban Decay, I’d love to create a palette with them, as their eyeshadows are my favourite along with MAC. Or perhaps Benefit, because I love their products and the packaging is adorable πŸ™‚

since mac releases about 50 collections a month, I wouldn’t want to do it with them because it wouldn’t be as special! I would have to say Nars for a more classic line, or Urban Decay for a more edgy one

I would say MAC because I love that brand, but like someone else pointed out, they do so many collections in a year, my collection wouldn’t feel special. I would want my collection and the packaging to feel elegant and luxrious…Dior, Channel, and YSL come to mind.

I’d probably go with a cheaper brand like Wet N’ Wild. I think the quality for the price is amazing and for a little extra you could ramp up the packaging. If I got my choice I’d rather do a nail polish brand and go with Butter London. I love their polishes.

Chanel! I just visited their counter yesterday, and it’s my Tiffany’s. “Nothing very bad could happen to you there.” To design with them would be incredible.
