MAC

They really do release too much product; I think that with other brands ramping up their own release schedules and just the reality of having even more brands on the map… MAC’s launches are more overwhelming now than they used to be (though I think they’re still putting about the same amount of products, which is a lot but doesn’t actually feel increased over the years). I wish they’d scale back the launches, stop releasing limited edition formulas, and expand more of their core ranges.

Bobbi Brown

I’d like to see more innovation in the range, and I’d like to see a lot less of the same types of palettes releasing each season–why not create a few really great, core palettes instead? I love the Luxe Lip Colors, High Shimmer Lipglosses, and highlighters!

L'Oreal

I love their Infallible Eyeshadows, Infallible Silkissime Eyeliners, and their nail polishes; those are the products that immediately come to mind! I also think that some of their skincare is underrated.

Make Up For Ever

The rant? No names!! I need names! I can’t remember numbers at all as product names. Otherwise, I love their more streamlined product ranges (one type of eyeshadow, divided into finishes, for example) that offer lots of shade variety. I also like that their base products are more inclusive than the average brand.

Maybelline

My least favorite thing that Maybelline does is heavily scent (to the point where they sometimes result in off-tastes) their lip products. I love their lipsticks, which have always been one of their strongest areas.

Smashbox

They’re only just getting more on my radar these days, so I don’t have too much to say since I haven’t tried a slew of their products in recent years. I am a huge fan of the Smashbox 24HR Eyeshadow Primer and their Be Legendary lipstick range!
