    For foundation, powder, blush, etc...I ONLY use Clinique. I have very sensitive skin and break out if I use anything else. Clinique is way expensive though. $18 for a bottle of foundation. Worth every penny, though.

    For eyeliner and mascara, I use Revlon Colorstay. Doesn't smear or smudge after 12-16 hours of intense sweating or crying, etc.. Lasts the whole shift. Removes easily w/baby oil. Eye shadow I use those new little things from (revlon? l'oreal?) called fresco? colors. I think that's what they're called. Cream shadow in a stick form. Again, it lasts. Doesn't wear off.

    Lipstick is either Revlon Colorstay or Clinique's version of colorstay-type stuff. Lasts a good 6-8 hours. Nice colors, nothing slutty or flashy. I'm an earthtone kind of girl in the makeup department.

    Hope this helps!! Go shopping, woman!

    You'll have to get more specific 'cause I use a different brand for virtually every product. I have been a more loyal consumer in the past but found that as soon as I got "hooked" on any one product, it was discontinued. So I am notoriously faithless now.

    If you like drugstore brands, Rite-Aid drugstores are great because you can return opened packages if you don't like the color. And for the tonier dept. store brands, a great place to try everything without getting harassed by makeup-counter clerks is Sephora. I just spent about an hour the other day poking my finger in every pot of lip gloss in the place. Wheee!

    I am with Kday! I love Clinique! I use their pressed powder compact and nothing else. Mascara--my fave is Cover Girl's Super Thick Lash--the one in the red tube--brown/black non-waterproof. Lipstick--I am liking L'oreals-Shine delice lipstick. Did you know that Lancome makes L'Oreal products?

    I like Cliniques Skin Care Line as well. Their toner is the best!
    Also, August 12th starts Clinique Bonus Week at Kaufmanns Dept Store! I love getting their little sample products! The makeup bags they pass out are way cool.

    I am a total makeup junkie! I have tons of stuff and most of it I rarely use. I guess it is a girlie thing! ha ha ha!

    I really like Prescriptive's foundation. I never could find a foundation that looked right until I went to their counter and had an exact match done. They will even mix one if none are right. It's expensive,but makes me feel I look good, so worth the indulgence to me.

    sorry, gals! but i don't wear make-up!

    the reason is a combination of laziness, ignorance and fear of breakouts. plus, it is a lot easier getting ready in the morning!
