Which brands do you love for which products?

Over the years of my cosmetics obsession, I've come to associate certain brands with certain really awesome types of products. If I'm looking for a face powder, I'll go to a certain brand. If I want face wash, I'll go to another brand, and so on.

I was wondering if yall wanted to copy my format and we could all share which brands we love for which products:

Brand: Laura Mercier

Type of Product: setting powders

Why: Man... these are ridiculous. What are they doing to make these soooo effective?!


Brand: MAC
Type of Product: lipstick

Why: You can't beat their colour range and price... it's just a fact.

Brand: Clinique
Type of Product: face cleansing and moisturizing
Why: They have a huge variety of products and they're really affordable, compared to other non-drugstore brands. I've found a lot of HG face stuff from them.

Brand: Miss Jessie's
Type of Product: curly hair care
Why: They've got a lo-fuss range of products for hair that is perfect for me.

Product: Chanel 22, inimitable Mascara, Eyeshadow

Why: Low their pigmentation of eyeshadow and how they shimmer but they are glitter, Inimitable mascara works to curl and separate my heavy lashes, Channel 22 is my signature perfume.


First Aid Beauty:

Why:  Rich products and suited for sensitive skin.  I use this for everyday, for after-showers, and even when I get cooking burns! Holy grail!
