It was the super powder from clinique.I'm using it 6 wears now and I'll never gonna change it. I think it's the quality, once you try luxury products, you never go back.

Oh the difference its like day and night!

But then again, there's luxury brands that have shitty *** quality, esp. Chanel eyeshadows, what's the point, they all look the same when you apply them. Just sparse coloured shimmer.

IMO Dior has the best best best eyeshadows around, sadly the variety of colours are not so wide. MAC is the second best in my book, as for colours, and foundations.

then again, to each their own.

OMG the exact opposite !!!!!!!! I have everything Dior i Dior make up, everything is perfect! Foundation (i searched for years for the best foundation and nothing compares to Diorskin Pure Light!!), blush, mascara, lip glosses, pencils (and the list goes on), but MAC eye shadows are the best in the world.
I should probably add that i use MAC pigments, not regular eyeshadows.

I don't know, i always had this obsession with luxury and expensive products. My favorite brands are Dior, Chanel, Helena Rubinstein, Givenchy, MAC, Versace.

But there are still a few drugstore items that I like, for example Covergirl's exact lash mascara.

A Lancome collection called Supernatural in the summer of 2003. It made me realize that there's a lot more creativity in high-end make-up. Before that I was buying Avon mostly and although I owned one Lancome lipstick, being a student I didn't even dare to look towards luxury brands.

Afterwards most of my allowance went on Lancome, and later other brands joined in

A gift certificate which I put toward Chanel Glossimer in Coco Mademoiselle (a red with gold shimmer), and the search for a decent foundation and powder, which are still two items I'll usually go out of my way for. The final straw was a search for acid green eyeshadow, which I only found through MAC.

I use a combination of drugstore and department store makeup, though, but now I think more carefully about which areas to spend more and where to scrimp...

Probably foundations - lower end brands could never match my skin tone, there's less range.

I'll try and think of more specific products I loved

MAC Lipglass. My dad couldn't believe that a single tube of gloss cost almost $20. But he's used to it now
