I’d have to say MAC. I’m kind of new to makeup, but MAC is on the cheaper side and they seem to always have fun collections.

I’m with you Kim! I love Urban Decay and am always excited for new products. Their vegan palette look so cute and environmentally friendly!

lol if you only knew lol jkjkjkjkjkjk, hope you at fun & got a bunch of makeup to review at SSC :))

i would have said MAC a few weeks ago because it is higher end, but still very affordable
but i’ve recently developed an addiction to chanel
i feel like everything they have is so luxurious and well/chic-ly packaged

for nail polish, it’s been essie
i love their color range because i’m not into crazy colors like neons or metallics
i like more subtle colors

For now NARS and MAC. I’m afraid to try anything from Chanel since I won’t be able to stop myself if I fall in love with it.

good idea! I got into Chanel a couple yrs ago and I’m always excited for their collections. But I just got into MAC – more affordable and more color selection.

MAC, but for lip products, blushes and eye liners mainly. I want to like their shadows, but so many of them seem to require multiple layers to get them to show up, even with primer. And the sad thing is they have the best color selection and no parabens in them.

NARS shadows are probably the nicest I’ve used, but the colors aren’t always my favorite. Urban Decay has a great selection, but I try not to give them my business after I found out their customer service was pathetic. Plus they put heaps of parabens in the Deluxe shadows, which are my favorites.

I would say MAC its afordable and there always comming out with new collections..Nars is also one of my fave but its pricey.

I wish I could afford Chanel! I’m head over heels for the Rouge Coco lipsticks. : (

Otherwise, I don’t have one brand I’m head over heels for. I own equal amounts of MAC and Clinique, but I have a VERY small makeup collection.

Currently, Nars! I can’t even pass thier isle in a Sephora without thinking I need it all. And I always cave in and walk away with something, ha.

MAC – so many lovely colours to choose from! Until I discovered MAC last year I only ever had cheap stuff.

MAC!!! They just grew on me after my first Raquel Welch for MAC purchase in 2007…before this I just pass by and didnt think of it…I was right on time!!! πŸ™‚

I’ll have to agree with many of you: NArs & MAc. Each product from them has something unique, quite different; IDk…. from the packaging to scent, quality, and the NAMES, they just always have me hooked. Mac products have simple yet cute names that gives me an idea about their color, while Nars’s ridiculous names like Orgasm & Deep Throat make me laugh, but curious, lol.

OPI and Essie (I’m completely obsessed with nail lacquers these days … I blame you and your amazing reviews LOL). And NARS for makeup πŸ™‚

LORAC.. I just love them. I know they don’t have new products and collections often like other brands, but I’ve never had a “miss” with them (knocks on wood.) I just love everything I’ve ever tried from them. The glosses are moisturizing, the eyeshadows are smooth like butter, and blushes wear all day ..and so on!

MAC and NARS. I want to try out MUFE too (HD was a disappointment though).

MAC is coming out with so many collections (I’m really excited for their Fall liquid liners), I kind of keep my eyes on them a lot more (marketing scheme! >_>). I love NARS for their blushes and eyeshadows duos but they are expensive (duos are $38 CDN O_O)!

Definitely MAC, I just started buying MAC products less than a year ago and I am addicted!

MAC all the way! Guerlain is one I REALLY want to try! I love their ads and photos…the models always look so lovely and the collections are amazing.

sadly, everything. but if i had to choose, i would say MAC… it’s probably because they release 2 collections per month and i really can’t help myself.

I would have to say obviously MAC first. But I also love love love Mally, Stila (glosses and shadow pots), Too Faced, and Urban Decay. These are high quality w/o breaking the bank.

I’ll love MAC forever, but I feel like I should give an answer that’s not really expected of me. I’ll say Benefit and Guerlain. Benefit is so fun but their products are high quality. I like the fun names and the cute packaging. Is that just me? I also love Guerlain because they’re edgy and classy all at the same time. I feel like their range of products differ from the rest and that makes them all the more captivating.

Always MAC, then NARS (which has collections only 4 times/year (seasonal). CHANEL which, unfortunately and despite the higher end pricing and chic packaging, does not have consistency in quality products so it depends what it is and I definitely have to swatch them first.

NYX. They always have fun colors and out do themselves once a year when they bring out the new stuff

MAC. So many choices, great quality and so professional. They seldom have a “fail” product.

Cle De Pau… they are expensive but really quite high quality. I do feel quite stingy when I think of their prices! Unfortunately colours can be duplicated but not quality. Normally when other brands try to solve a beauty problem, the product creates another problem. This one doesn’t.

Probably MAC, just because I started out buying other brands, and so now I only have a few MAC products, but I really like them all!

MAC. I have been a MAC addict for about 5 or 6 years now. They are my primary source of color products. For some reason I am now getting into Estee Lauder. Never really considered it because it seems targeted at older women, but I like the foundations and skin care.

Chanel — it is so pricey that I have to be selective. But I just love it. Also, MAC — it never disappoints!

As odd as it seems, it’s Wet & Wild for me. I’m always buying new stuff from them! And it’s cheap!

MAC, MAC and even more MAC! They’re innovative and they push boundaries–truly a fashion makeup brand!

It use to be MAC but because I get overwhelmed by their multiple launches I have been staying away. Right now it’s Chanel and NARS!

I’d say MAC since they come out with new stuff so often and for their quality, the price really isn’t bad. However, there are other brands I stick exclusively too for certain products, like Clinique for their facial 3 step system or NARS for their liquid foundation and so forth

MAC every other week on payday I always end up at MAC spending all my money, I’ve loved makeup for the past 4 years but I just recently in November started to actually start spending money on Makeup I used to just be happy buying stuff at the drug store but now that I have MAC I’m never going back well maybe for some small things.


MAC, Always looking forward to new paint pots/shade sticks & brushes. Also, Benefit’s palettes, they are always freaking cute! Urban Decay and Too Faced palettes are awesome, too.

MAC ofc! πŸ˜€ But I don’t shop at MAC very often, since it is a while from my home and I’m still in school… Now it’s summer holidays though :)Since I don’t go there very often, I tend to spend all my money on cheaper brands that are closer to my town :/

MAC!!! I bought stuff from MAC, Benefit, Urban Decay and Nars….I use alllll of my MAC stuff all the time..I love it. Love the Collections. Second would be Urban Decay then Benefit. Nars is beautiful but soooo expensive..too expensive for me..not worth it.

NARS and Laura Mercier are my go-tos. Dior products have really been impressing me lately though!

I started to collect and fell in deep love with Mac since Barbie loves Mac. Before that I was obsessed with Dior, Chanel & Sisley. I love Nars too, but if I had to pick one, I`d stay in my Mac world <3
Deep love for Mac, it should be Mac For Ever, sorry mufe, but Mac eye shadows always have the highest ratings <3 ily Mac, k am obsessed.

Dior, MAC, and aromaleigh. Though I must say I keep my eyes on quite a few other brands. I think I see a lot of Guerlain in my future for fall – though I am dying to see what Dior has for fall and the holidays.

For nails I am all about OPI, I think I may have to get Paradoxe from Chanel’s fall collection and I think I saw a few others you’ve posted which I “need”.
