Definitely MAC – without a doubt.
Next would be Chanel – lipsticks (some) and most of all lipglosses.I do not care for Chanel eyeshadows and foundations at all!

Chanel is the best of the best.

Clarins for skincare. Lancome because I’m loyal (I was a BA once).

MAC for certain staples like Lipglass and special shadow colors.

But yes, Chanel, without a doubt. It’s so..luxurious! And pretty. And quality.

I am a true MAC fanactic for all things eyes and lips. I love Clinique & Chanel for skin care, face, blush, and mascara.

I am a lover of pretty much all makeup brands but I tend to own the most MAC, Clinique, and Chanel.

I keep coming back to MAC because I love the new formulations of the eyshadows and the colors are just fabulous. The Matte^2 line is so AWESOME. I know I’ll be collecting more and more of those shadows.

Bare Escentuals was my first “real” makeup brand so I’m always interested in what the company has coming up next. They are actually introducing some shadows and blushes with platinum, gold, or silver metals infused.

But also I love me some smashbox jet set eyeliner and the soft lights blushes.

MAC definitely! Except I like Dior for mascara, and I LOVE ERA foundation… There is just no other like it for me when it comes to foundation and mascara… Other than that, MAC for everything else!

ERA foundation is a spray on foundation- it’s honestly the best foundation. I think, and everyone that I got to try it have switched to it immediately! It gives a flawless, airbrushed, ethereal finish. You can get more information on classifiedcosmetics.com.

Definately MAC!!! But I do buy things from other brands once in a long…..while too eg. Kiko,Pupa,Stila,Jill Stuart,Visee,Loreal,Deborah,Collistar,Nouba,etc..

I love M路A路C but, Bobbi Brown, NARS, Urban Decay, Bobbi Brown, Chanel, Dior, YSL and Laura Mercier are also faves for certain products.

I tend to use a mix between MAC and this new brand thats come out here in Aus called Inglot… its originally a Polish brand but they have brought out some stores here… I find that the quality is as good as some of the MAC products…. the staying power of the eye shadow is fantastic… I did my make up and then fell asleep on my bed waiting for my parents to get ready to go out and I woke up 3 hours later (parents had left without me) and my make up was still how it was when I did it! The pigments arent as good as MAC but the eye shadows and foundation etc is really good…

Overall, I tend to use mostly MAC, but other faves are Urban Decay, Nars and BeneFit. I also really have great luck with Maybelline foundations, powders, concealers, and mascaras.

I recently made the exclusive switch to MAC, went though every piece of makeup I own and got rid of EVERYTHING that wasn’t MAC. It honestly makes getting ready in the morning soooooooo much easier. My makeup collecting shrunk by about 85% but in the long run, I plan to build it back up with just MAC.

MAC eyeshadows and paint pots are the BEST. but i use jane iredale mineral products for my skin because MAC foundations make me breakout. clinique is my top line of defense for skincare.

if i want to try anything besides MAC, chanel, dior, and givenchy are pretty.

hey, is napoleon perdis any good? I have yet to try his products! comparable to MAC?

I’m glad to hear you love the new paint pots! I’m not a big fan of mienral makeup quite yet, maybe one day.

Napoleon Perdis is excellent in quality! Definitely comparable to MAC in that respect.

MAC isn’t a favorite… it’s an addiction… a vice… HAHAHA!!! anyhow, of course I love MAC for everything but I use the following for very lazy, fast makeup routine days: Bare Escentuals foundations, Benefit 10 and Badgal Lash, Clinique eyeshadows (neutral colors) and eyebrow pencil. For every other day, time, etc… it’s MAC!!!

MAC 馃榾

Some MAC history for all the MAC lovers:
“MAC is not a makeup-line,which was created by a makeup artist,but a line,created for makeup artists.”-said
Mac-founder Frank Toskan,in 1997,in an interview.
With his partner Frank Angelo (died in 1997) and his brother-in-law Vic Casale begun Toskan in the early ’80ies in the kitchen of his mother the mixing of lipsticks and other makeup. His reason was,that he couldn’t find the optimal products for his work.
He was a hair-stylist,makeup artist and photographer.
More and more of his colleagues and models wanted to work with his products. (Even Lady Di was spotted at a MAC counter.)
The makeup-artist brand from Canada: MAC (Make-up Art Cosmetics) was born.
“We wanted to create a makeup-line for all the hues of skincolor,all groups of ages and all genders.”-said Frank Toskan.
