Just curious, what brand to you buy the most of? Lately I have been buying the Revlon Lip Butters. I love the colors, and how they are semi sheer.

I love the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation. Also, almost any of the lip products from Revlon- the lustrous lip gloss is one of my favorites.

I also like the Maybelline Color Tattoos- the only cream eyeshadow that doesn't crease on me!

And Wet and Wild eyeshadows and their liquid liner. All great!

I was sick of paying $30+ for MAC foundation and have discovered Revlon Colorstay 24 hour. OH. EM. GEE!! It is a much better formulation for my combo/acne prone skin, keeps my skin matte all day without powder, and is only $9.00!!!

I really like these too. I use an eye primer if I wear them alone but they make a great base for your powdered shadows.

The L'Oreal Infallible pot shadows are another great creamy/powder shadow.

I LOVE Maybelline's mascara! I've tried Diorshow at $24/pop and Blinc mascara. I always go back to Maybelline.

I like Revlon's lip butter.

I have really been enjoying the Wet N Wild eye shadow trios and palettes with 8 shadows. I would have never thought to try them. WnW was what I used in high school! They have really come a long way.

I love the NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk. I use it for extra primer, a bit under the eye and to highlight under my eye brow. If you are loving the Milk as a primer, NYX now makes it in a pot and sells it as a primer. There are videos on you tube showing how to depot them, now you don't have to!

I love the Essie "I Love Extreme Crazy Volume Mascara" in the hot pink tube. Nice formula and I love the brush.

Foundation: using L'Oreal Youth Code BB Cream at the moment. Also like Maybelline FIT for a tiny bit more coverage.
Concealer: Maybelline in the tube with the wand.
Blush: ELF (I forget the shade but it's supposed to be a dupe for NARS Orgasm).
Eyeshadow: NYX, Revlon Colorstay
Liner: L'Oreal Lacquer Liner (it's a gel liner in a pot).
Mascara: Maybelline Volume Express.

I just got back from Walgreens and picked up some Wet n Wild eye shadow. The colors are so pretty, I'm looking forward to trying it. Next stop, Target for some NYC bronzer. Thanks everyone. I'm taking notes! Trying to figure out which store near me sells NYX. No luck so far.

YES YES!! this stuff is awesome. I finally found a makeup that covers the melasma spots and the rosesea. It stays on! I can't wait to see how it performs in the summer heat.

I love NYX. I have their eyeshadows and lip products and think they're just as good as higher end products. I get my stuff at Ulta.

Max Factor for mascara
Barry M for lip liners
Rimmel for nude eyeliner
Revlon & Barry M for nail polish

Lipsticks, foundation and most eye shadows/liner pens, I tend to use non-drugstore brands.

The L'Oreal Infallible pot shadows are another great creamy/powder shadow.

I agree! I use the color called Iced Latte and it's a great one for a "no makeup" day. I think it may actually be a dupe for one of the Mac eye shadows. I did find that it looked better when I applied with my finger rather than a brush.

I really like Loreal's gel eyeliner. I'd been using the Bobbi Brown gel eyeliner and there isn't anyplace close that sells it. I didn't feel like making the drive, so I picked up one of these to hold me over until I could go get more of the Bobbi Brown. Haven't made it to pick up the Bobbi Brown yet! I'm extremely happy with it, and it comes with a great little brush!

Ok, I goggled Ulta and it turns out there is one 7 miles from me. Sounds like a weekend shopping trip is in order.
