I’ll give the cheaper alternatives of my favs, which I use every day to help those on a budget!

Favorite brand of eyeshadow? – Crown Brush 88 Color Matte Palette
Why?: You get many colors for a great price. The color payoff is great and I love the texture.
Favorite brand of eyeliner? – Prestige Liquid Eyeliner and Pencil in Black
Why?: The black color is BLACK, not graphite, which is great. The tip is felt and bendable. The pencil is creamy, easy to make a line with no pressure and dark in color.
Favorite brand of mascara? – NYX Dolleye
Why?: Creates long, voluminous lashes that separate and do not clump.

Favorite brand of eyeshadow? Combining Payoff and Affortability – Sleek Cosmetics (regardless of price, to me they’re better than MAC and UD)

Favorite brand of eyeliner? Liquid – Clinique Gel Liner, Pencil – Avon Supershock

Favorite brand of mascara? Max Factor False Lash Effect

eyeshadow – UD (for the naked palette) or Chanel
eyeliner – bobbi brown for gels, and MAC’s chromagraphic pencils. otherwise i just use a shadow to line with
mascara – haven’t found a favorite, but i am liking MAC’s plushlash

Eyeshadow: That’s too hard! I love far too many eyeshadows to chose.

Liner: Tarte’s Smoldereyes, with UD 24/7 a close second :).

1) Favorite Brand of eyeshadow?

That has to be Urban Decay. I am addicted to the stuff. I recently had to get both the 15th Anniversary and the BOS 4 to add to my obscene UD collection. Btw, ya I do use the speaker, usb, QR codes and hook up my iPod but don’t tell anyone.

2) Favorite Brand of eyeliner?

No question about it, What is MAC fluid line Alex?

3) Favorite Brand of Mascara?

I can only use Diorshow (Original, Waterproof, Extase and Blackout) otherwise I think my eyeballs will fall out if I use anything else. Another addiction.

Favorite brand of eyeshadow? MAC, MUFE
Favorite brand of eyeliner? Bourjois, Benefit
