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?

Josie Maran is fabulous. I bought all of the holiday sets and have found every product I've tried so far to work great for me. I will always love Tarte's blushes even though I'm not happy with their "reformulations" that have caused their products to shrink in size (by half!) and have the price remain the same. Something I've discovered today that I love is Dr. Jart's BB cream. I will be getting his BB cream sampler kit to try out the other three variations.

*high fives killahbabe* Josie Maran is fabulous! :smileyhappy:  The Tarte blushes have shrunk in size??? I didn't know that, those are my favorite blushes too! :smileysurprised: :smileysad:

Their cream blushes are now half the size. :smileysad: But the powder blushes are the same size (for now)...

Oh, got ya. The cheek stains. Those were always so huge! I can't believe they made them smaller, but still charge the same price. So lame! I'm a big fan of the Amazonian Clay 12-hour blushes, the cheeks stain always felt sticky and would sometimes break me out. But, I do have combo-oily skin.

Urban decay and Josie Maran are my absolute favorite brands.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Long story short: 

Lips- Guerlain

Eyes- Vacant (Guerlain lacks shades and with Urban Decay and Mac, there is real competition); Plus with eyeliner and mascara needing to be 120% waterproof, BRANDS WILL VARY. (Still like Guerlain MaxiLash) 

Face/Complexion- Guerlain

Cleanser/Moisturizer- Philosophy

Exfoliant/Mask- Vacant

Nails- OPI (see Manicure note) 

But I have a serious brand loyalty to Guerlain- I even have a bag full of just Guerlain make-up products. Plus I collect some of their products.

I'm pretty loyal to Urban Decay. I tend to like a lot of the products they come out with. Eyeshadows, liners, setting spray, foundation, powder...

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I have HG products that I will never stay from- Ole Henrickson skin care namely- but otherwise I love trying new brands. Even when I love something, I tend to stray away to try something new after a few purchases.

I tend to obsess over anything new from UD, Dior and Nars.

I am very loyal to Urban Decay, Too Faced, and Nars. I love their products. For skincare I love Murad and Boscia.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

The only major loyalty I have is to cruelty free brands.  I'll probably try them if they fall in that spectrum.  

Brands I really gravitate towards:

Hourglass

Bite

Nars

Urban Decay

Tarte

Too Faced

OCC

Butter London

AG Hair Cosmetics

Drybar

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Yea, I only use natural and cruelty free brands, so that REALLY limits me on what products to use. I mainly use Josie Maran, Tarte, Buxom, BareMinerals and WEN. I recently bought a few items from Acure...they aren't sold at Sephora, though.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Oh, and I'm switching to DDG for skincare and Devacurl and Alterna for hair.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I use Juice Beauty, Lush, Josie Maran, and Tarte for skincare.  I'm looking into Ole Henrickson, but there isn't anything I need yet.  

If you need a good deep conditioner, try AG or Carol's Daughter.  They work and smell divine!

SydBristow

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Ditto. I am trying to go with only cruelty free, which narrows the field a bit but there are still plenty of great brands. The ones you have named and Lorac too.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I think I am starting to be 100% loyal to Bite Beauty. I don't see why I would get a lipstick anywhere else when I know theres work so well. I would only opt for somewhere else if they had a good set/sale going on or a colour I couldn't find in the Bite selection.
