How many brands of makeup do you own? What's your favorite?

I confess that I had this misconception when I was a MAC user that you use one brand exclusively. And I have a friend who used exclusively MAC and wasn't thrilled with all of their products. I told her about Sephora and that usually one brand isn't going to address of your makeup needs and wants. She now loves Sephora and has never looked back.

 

So I thought it would be fun for us to say how many brands of makeup we own and our favorite and why. First me:

 

I own 11 brands of makeup

 

Urban Decay is my favorite because eye shadows and eyeliners are amazing!

 

And... go!

16 brands in current use

 

I've tried a ridiculous number of brands for all kinds of things - between allergies and preferences, I'm down to my current run. I've settled on MAC for lipsticks because I can handle the smell, they don't contain anything I'm allergic to usually, and generally wear bold/dark lipsticks anyway. I don't wear gloss, so that's not a thing for me. NARS has me for blushes and bronzers because they seem to work well with my skin tone - I'll probably try the lighter Naked Flushed when it comes out. Foundation is an eternal hunt for me and I will jump ship to any brand that has a shade that matches - my closest match has been discontinued, so I'm currently waving at passing ships from a liferaft. :smileytongue: So, do I have a favorite brand? It depends on what for - from the looks of it, NARS or Urban Decay might qualify.

This is really tough -- I don't even think I can count the number of brands I have without being in front of everything, but NARS and Chanel are probably the best represented. :smileyvery-happy:

Re: How many brands of makeup do you own? What's your favorite?

Okay, I don't own a lot of make up, but my favorite brands are Tarte and BareMinerals, they are what I wear on a regular basis.  I also occasionally use/ on special occasions use: Urban Decay, Nars, Hourglass (LOVE), Smashbox, Benefit, Too Faced, MUFE, Blinc, Kat von D (tattoo liner only, don't like her other products), and Fresh. 

 

Skincare is a whole separate Pandora's box...
