Favorite Brands

Over the year or so of heavy makeup addiction a few brands have made their way to the top of my favorites list. They're consistent, beautiful, and keep getting me to come back for more.

The new favorite brand: Probably the newest brand favorite of mine, Stila can do no wrong. It's the brand I keep browsing whenever I have a weak moment and end up on the Sephora website. Their cream blushes have captured my attention too many times to count and I'll be sure to cave and purchase one soon. My favorite products have to be the In the Light Palette and the liquid liners. I've raved about them in probably a dozen posts, they're just that good.

The cheaper yet still quality brand: I am one to enjoy a good drugstore brand, but lately I've had my eye on the more expensive ones. Yet I still love Revlon when I find myself back in the drugstore makeup aisles. Not a brand I usually go to for bases (I'm not crazy about the Nearly Naked line and foundation), but Revlon excels at lip products and blushes. I particularly like their lip butters and their cream blushes.

The "I wish I didn't love you" brand: NARS is the brand I wish I didn't love because of the price alone. This stuff is bloody expensive. The frugal side of me is sure I can find something just as good at a cheaper price, but the makeup lover knows that NARS is where it is at. I'm sure you're all aware of my favorites from the brand so I won't bore you with them for another post, but I have my sights on checking out their Sheer Glow foundation, lipsticks, and liners next. 

The long loved brand: It's safe to say that I've loved theBalm products the longest. Their packaging sucked me in and I've been a happy camper ever since. Their NUDE'tude palette is beautiful, pigmented, and unique. Their FratBoy blush could easily be the only blush I ever use. Plus their products are on the lower end of high end. I can't wait to keep exploring the brand and find more products that surprise me with quality. 

What are your favorite brands? What brands do you go to for different products?

  3. Agreed on ALL counts! Revlon does have a lot of really lovely products. I rank Revlon and L'Oreal as the all around best in the drugstore. CoverGirl, probably the worst haha
