Cosmetics Brands You Rely On
I know that I can't trust any product to dry fast enough or work effectively enough from N.Y.C.

I know I can always trust Rimmel London for great eyeliner pencils and fast-drying nail polish in fantastic colors.

Which companies do you rely because each section of cosmetics the company produces consistently succeeds in working well?

Diorshow is the mascara I always use. It's $29 yet works well.
Rimmel London has a great gold eyeliner.
Petites makes the best colors but unfortunately, the worst polish to wait to air dry.
Goodie makes the best brand of ouch-less hair ties.

i'd rather live it 'cause dreamers always chase but never get it............................... sam ypma

Evian Mineral Water Spray. Very reliable in every way I must say.

And pure generic rose water. Not a brand, but a miracle from nature.

I trust MAC for lip stuff, eyeshadow, some eyeliners, and blush/baked products. I trust Avon for mascara and a good cheapy lipstick, I trust Dior for mascara as well, OPI and Essie for nail polish, Sephora Brand for good cheap eyeliners, and Urban Decay for some eye stuff.

Most brands sold at a drugstore I will not even touch with gloves.

Armani make up do the best for mascara and eye concealer. The foundation also has very good result. Eye shadows from Guerlain, and try new Armani make palette..

I love blue eyeliner from YSL, nice blue tone colour.

All my blushes are by MAC. They have fantastic nailpolishes, too.
For concealer I use Touche Eclat and nothing but Touche Eclat by YSL, plus I love their lipglosses and lipsticks.
My one and only mascara is Phenomen'eyes by Givenchy.
Nearly all my nailpolishes are by Chanel. They do not last very long, but the colours are always gorgeous.

If in doubt, I buy YSL. I have never been let down by any of their products. I have ceased to buy anything from Dior except for my make-up. I think sometimes the quality is more than lackluster.

I'm an ice queen, Iím the Sun King, Iím an alien fleeing from District 9 and Iím a dominatrix. So I reckon that makes me a lukewarm royalty with a whip from outer space.

NARS, for just about everything. I worship their products.
Once in a while MAC, but not so much anymore.

I prefer Dior for nailpolish- I have about 6 of their colors. Their topcoats and basecoats work fabulously!

Prescriptives for a custom match to my skin

There's a need for more individuality today, and my job is to cater to women, not dictate to them.
