Loyalty to a Brand?

Are there any particular products/brands that you are completely loyal to?  Ever since I discovered Josie Maran's brand 3 years ago, I have not switched my skincare. That is really saying something, because I am a beauty product junkie! Also, I'm super loyal to WEN since switching to it over 2 years ago.  What beauty products/brands are you loyal to and would consider your ultimate holy grail?

I am a big Bite Beauty fan too.  I have the double ended lip kit and the high pigment pencil set, and they're all great and last forever.  I also love their lip scrub and the new mask, my only disappointment is their lip liner.  It's hard, dry, and waxy:smileysad:

I'm interested in Bite Beauty. Which ones are your top go-to colors? I've also been eyeing Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics lip tars.

Pepper is a BEAUTIFUL MLBB shade, Rose is the perfect, pretty wearable pink and Pomegrante is one of the nicest true reds I've ever found.

Well they are a bit pricey so I only have a handful. I really love Fig in the lipstick. It feels so smooth and moisturizing on my lips and is a perfect dusty rose colour. I want palomino but it is sold out in my Sephora store. I also really like the lip pencils. They come on really pigmented and make it easy to shape your lips. I really like Corvina (see below). I can't wait to try more :smileyhappy: I think some trading threads have some Bite products on them. I am also really interested in OCC lip tars. I think they might be a little too high maintenance for me though (brush application).upload_4271566506570866160.jpg

I've been trading for a few, after I picked up Violet in store I was sold.  The mask and lip butter are worth investing in as well!

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Interesting topic :smileyhappy:  I think there's a big difference between "brand loyalty" and holy grail products.  I've found my HG foundation in the KVD Lock-It, but I wouldnt consider myself completely loyal to KVD exclusively.  I also dont REALLY want to use any other facial oil than my HG Tarte Maracuja Oil, but I'm open to trying others & going back as necessary :smileywink:

 

I would say I'm a complete sucker for Urban Decay.  I have multiple palettes that I dont need & continue to buy (all three Naked Palettes for example), even though one of them clearly isnt flattering because of the undertones.  I also will splurge on Dior Mascaras bc I LOVE the way they work wonders with my lashes.  So maybe for me, its "brand loyalty" based on specific products?  Either way, thanks for sharing your fav brands, everyone!!

 

xo, Mia

I tend to buy a lot of Urban Decay.  I just really love the shadows and liners and I'm currently using the Naked Foundation.  Maybe I should expand...

The only brand loyalty I have is for MAC and my foundation/concealer. It's the only one I use, I love it.

Surprisingly, I've never used a MAC product! I watch a bunch of youtube videos for "how to" looks and things like that. They are always using MAC eyeshadows and base, etc. I wonder why Sephora doesn't carry MAC? :-/

I think Sephora doesn't carry MAC because it's too large and comprehensive of a line for Sephora to carry (they don't even always carry the full inventory of the lines it does carry, like NARS, for instance). There are other reasons, too, but I don't think MAC and Sephora would ever enter into a partnership unless (by some odd chance) it were a specific "MAC for Sephora" mini release collection.

Me either!

I've never used a Mac product either!  Am I missing out?

I love MAC for their foundation and concealer, it's my HG, so if you're still looking for those products you might be missing out:smileytongue:

 

Also, the huggable lip colors are my new obsession. They're LE, so I'm getting them in a ton of different colors and will cry when they are gone.

Sometimes I like their limited edition collections, like the Disney Villains, and the one in 2010 with the ombré blushes (I cannot for the life of me remember what that one was called -- I'm sure it will hit me in about 15 minutes). I do own a lot of the LE blushes, but I don't use anything regularly from MAC but false lashes. 

 

One of my HG blushes was from that collection with the name I can't remember -- it's called Azalea and is a pink/purple ombré. I should have bought backups, because I love it!

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

hmm maybe just skincare. Ive used the same line for cleanser fresh 2yrs, exfoliator fresh 1yr… and then josie maran argan oil for 1.5years?

 

with makeup im all over the place

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Yea, my loyalty is definitely easier with my skincare. Makeup? Not so much. I am willing to try new stuff a lot more. lol.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I can't say I'm loyal to a particular brand, but if I find something that works well for me in a line, I tend to choose it over most other brands. Especially if I'm looking for a new product, I have a bias towards brands I've used successfully in the past. 

 

On the other hand, if I had a bad reaction to a certain brand, I will most probably never use anything by that company again. I know it's irrational, but my skin is so sensitive I don't want to risk it! 

tracygirl64

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I have super sensitive skin too. I think that's why I haven't steered away from Josie's line after I saw how well it worked for me. There's no point in risking my skin and trying something else if what I use now is working really well. lol. There are quite a few brands I steer clear of after having bad reactions with them.

That's how I feel, too -- if it works, why rock the boat? I'm never tempted by new skincare things (even if they're really appealing!) because my skin is fine as it is, and I don't want to risk a reaction or breakout. :smileyhappy:

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I'm not loyal to a specific brand, since I use and love products from many different companies. But I do have a lot of makeup from Urban Decay, and for skincare I like Caudalie and some Proactiv products.

Oh yeah, Caudalie is another good brand! :smileyhappy: I used many of their products before switching to Josie's line.
