I'm on a quest for some new products so this series will be helpful to me!

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

Only have a second so I'll just list a couple .. My skincare and make-up base is all Clinique. I only use OPI nail polish because it's formaldehyde (and other very bad things) free.

JMW said...

For hair, it's always Aveda. From shampoo and conditioner to styling products. I also like Aveda for cleansing my face. Most of my makeup is from Clinique.

I am a big Dr. Hauschka fan...cleanser and moisturizers, eye makeup and rose oil.
Aveda for my hair Shampure shampoo, Brilliant Humectant,
lip tint in berry, Aveda mascara

OPI clear for my finger nails...OPI for my toes...Beru-B-Ruby and I'm not just a waitress.

Eliza Ward said...

My favorite brands are Clinique and Fresh. Those two basically cover all makeup and perfume that I wear!

Carolyn said...

I love Mario Badescu skin care- Orange cleansing cream, Seaweed toner, Moisture magnet & dermocatin for under the eyes...I live in Laura Mercier make up with the exception of Bare Esentuals mineral foundation, for hair its Aveda all the way except I use Moroccan Hair Oil which is a dream come true for my dry, fine and can be frizzy tresses. For fragrance I am madly in love with Balenciaga which my Beloved gave me for Christmas!

James said...

I was surprised to see my name in your post, thank you! I'm afraid I'm a bit boring. All my "stuff" is Old Spice. It's like comfort food for my sense of smell. It makes me feel manly and wise. I'm not sure why, maybe because of the men I have known who wore it. Plus my family all liked it. As the only male in the house that was important.

Cindy Swanson said...

I can rely on drugstore dupes for a lot of things, but I can't live without my Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation--it's literally the foundation of everything I do on my face!

I agree with those who've already stated that Lancome mascaras are amazing. They are the only mascaras that really seem to make a difference in my lashes.

I love Ulta eyeshadows, but also have a couple of Estee Lauder palettes--and amazingly, my current favorite palette is an ELF one that I think cost 5 dollars on clearance! In fact, I've been pretty impressed with most ELF products, which are especially wonderful if you're on a budget as I am.

I also love Moroccan Oil for my hair, but I've also found a less expensive variety at Sally Beauty Supply that does the same thing. I use the oil itself, the shampoo and conditioner.

My absolute favorite perfume is Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel, but I also really like Victoria's Secret's Very Sexy and--in VERY small doses--Clinique's Aromatics Elixir (a little mist of that goes a VERY long way.)

Triannas Treasures said...

I couldn't live without Smashbox Photo Finish Primer and my overall miracle worker, Yves St. Laurent Touche Eclat. Those are the absolute necessities!

Suburban Princess said...

I just fell in love with Lancome mascara.

MAC blush.

Wear Amazing Grace, Heavenly Angels, RL Style.
Nivea/Labello tinted lip balm most days instead of lipstick but when I wear lipstick it's always MAC.

MAC lip liner.

For primer and foundation I use Yves Rocher and people ask me if I had my makeup airbrushed on!!

I used to use CG loose powder but they discontinued it so I wear whatever I can get my hands on if it isnt mineral powder.

Avon eyeliner.

Yves Rocher eyeshadow usually along with NYC (surprisingly incredible eyeshadow!).

Moroccan oil, natch.

Finesse mousse.

Got2Be hair shine spray.

Head&Shoulders (dont laugh, makes my hair so soft!)

Yves Rocher and BBW body wash.

Mario Badescu face cleansers, toners.

Quo and Loreal face wipes.

OofO eye gel and serum.

Aveeno day cream and Loreal night cream.

Mario Badescu rose water spritz.

Whew! I use a lot of product! No wonder I cant travel light! And to think people say I look natural LOL!

Personally, I love the facial creams and cleansers by Estee Lauder. Can't convince me to change!!!! I also love their make up.
Mind you Mac is a close second for makeup but I find that unlike Mac, Estee Lauder has frequent "Gift with Purchase" events that reward customers generously!!!! Hair treatment hands down Goldwell, which is Loreal's high end line...very important for colour treated hair!!!!! And nail polish, I love OPI. Favorite colours include: Lincoln Park, Midnight in Moscow, Got the Blues for Red, Mr Oleary's BBQ, and Suzi Skis in the Pyrenees.
