Whoops. Sorry ladies I don't do high end make-up because I don't wear it often enough and my skin is so dang GREASY that if I paid $40 for some foundation that I couldn't use I would have to drop kick a paint bucket! I gamble my make-up dollars on things that are decently priced and best of all RETURNABLE!
Foundation - Chanel, Make Up For Ever, Laura Mercier
Bases/primers - Urban Decay, Benefit, Smashbox
I like the Maybelline Expert Wear quads; they don't have the best color payoff or staying power but they're a reasonable price and they take the guesswork out of what eyeshadow colors to use for when you are feeling uninspired.
Unfortunately, I think pretty much all of the brands I chose test on animals but I can try to make a list of cruelty free companies if that is something you are concerned about.
Omg lol I really love Maybelline and there foundations have been great for me, also enjoy L'oreal. I have to say love the liners from l'oreal they are the best, and I love the covergirl lip perfection lipsticks they are amazing!. I pick Maybelline cause the most products I use constantly are from them. by the way what products have you tried and hated from them?
I use Physicians Formula for concealor and foundation because it's the only brand that doesn't make me break out too much during special occasions. I have extremely sensitive skin and when I was in Drama club during high school I'd always have nasty pustules and cysts from the old Clinique foundation when it was performance times. I have tried Lloreal's False Lash mascara and I didn't really notice a difference with the way my eyelashes looked before and after I put it on. But lucky for me, PF offers special packs of eyeshadow and eyeliner based on your eye color or the look you want - for example, casual, eye candy, smokey eye, universal looks, pop collection. PF may be a bit expensive but it's worth it!
