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?

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

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! Smiley Happy  The Tarte blushes have shrunk in size??? I didn't know that, those are my favorite blushes too! Smiley Surprised Smiley Sad

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Their cream blushes are now half the size. Smiley Sad But the powder blushes are the same size (for now)...

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

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.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I own alot of different products from alot of different brands, but my HG products that I always replace would have to be:


Makeup Remover - Mac Cleanse Off Oil

Skin Cleanser - Origins Checks and Balances

Moisturizer - Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel

Eye Cream - Clinique Anti-Gravity Firming Eye Lift Cream 

Eyeshadow primer/base - Mac Paint Pot in Painterly

Brows - Anastasia Brow Wiz in Medium Ash and ELF clear brow mascara

Foundation - Estee Lauder Double Wear

Powder - NARS 

Blush - Benefit Box Powders or NARS

Mascara - Benefit or Estee Lauder

Lipstick - Mac Faux


LOL!!  Just to name a few.  

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I have Faux, it's a great shade!

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I would worship at 










feet if i wasn't christian Smiley Wink

But in all seriousness, I will buy from Bite NARS and Tarte for life. 

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I am super loyal to Koh Gen Do's Cleansing Spa Water. That's the only thing I purchase consistently. For everything else such as facial cleanser, skincare, foundation, brows, lipstick, etc. I'll try products from all different brands.

Skincare - First Aid Beauty

Nail Polish and Care - Zoya 

Perfume - BPAL

Lipstick - MAC

Brows - Anastasia Beverly Hills


I seem to be slowly becoming an Urban Decay shadow person - I've used MAC, NARS, Kat Von D, Too Faced, and a million other brands and my collection seems to be slowly accumulating more UD shadows. 

I'll try new things that look interesting from other brands but I find myself only keeping and repurchasing the above. 

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I realized the other day that every eyeshadow palette I own is from Urban Decay! I tried a Lorac palette but HATED it - so that's going into a TSB. 

So, although I wasn't intentionally loyal to UD, I guess at the end of the day, that definitely counts as brand loyalty. 

I'm also loyal to Bite, because literally - there is no other lipstick like their lipstick! It's pigmented and literally STAYS so well. I haven't met a better one, so it's Bite for life!

Also - in terms of foundation, I haven't really strayed from BareMinerals, although I caught myself looking at some NARS foundation these past few weeks, so you never know! 

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Gosh, I've heard such good things about Bite's lipsticks. I really need to go into my Sephora and check them out.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I seem to be brand loyal in phases.  I was very brand loyal to First Aid Beauty for a long time.  However, the one thing I wasn't happy with was their moisturizers.  They just didn't feel good on my skin.  So now that I'm running out of my current skincare, I am starting to try other things.  


I LOVE Lorac.  I really liked the foundation I had from them, but it's been discontinued.  They honestly make the best blushes in my opinion.  I will always try Lorac stuff because it has just been great for me.  


However, I like trying new things.  I just ordered some IT Cosmetics stuff and I have the feeling that will be my newest loyalty....for a while Smiley Wink


But overall...Lorac is definitely one I am loyal to.  


Oh I almost forgot.  I am totally brand loyal to Bite Beauty.  I never have that many lipsticks.  I prefer having one or two good quality ones in colors that work for me.  Their formula is just the best I have ever found, so I won't ever stray far from them.  My absolute favorite shades are Fig and Shiraz.  

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I love Lorac too!  I think you can get the prior version liquid foundations in the VIP sale section right now.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

For skincare I am loyal to Josie Maran, as well as Alba Botanica and Lush for certain things (Ultrabland makeup remover).  

For makeup I use Tarte, Too Faced, Josie Maran and a bit of Urban Decay, Tarte and Too Faced are my go to though, all of my favourite foundations are Tarte.  

For haircare I need to try WEN but right now I love Alba Botanica and Josie Maran.

For shower and body I love body shop!


My main thing is for them to be cruelty free.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

I love Alba, too! I just bought a bunch of their natural sunscreen for my trip next week.

Re: Loyalty to a Brand?

Bareminerals (foundation, eyeliner, eye shadow) and Buxom (lip polish & eyeliner)  are my makeup favorites, for the most part I won't use any other brand, here and there I'll try a mascara (which I rarely wear) by Lancome or Yves Saint Laurent. I'm a fan of Ole Henriksen skin care but I am not exclusive & I use Wen hair cleansing conditioner pretty regularly, but I may switch to regular shampoo to give my hair a break.

Skincare: Avene, Vichy, Estee Lauder, and Clinique


Laura Mercier
