Weekly Beauty Question #2

Q: If I took a peek at your makeup collection, which brand would I most frequently encounter? What brand are most products from? Is that your favorite brand?

My Answer: I think the majority of my makeup is from MAC and Revlon. Neither brand is my absolute favorite (although I do love them). I think the reason such a large amount of my collection consists of Revlon is that I own a ridiculous amount of their lip products. They make really good (and affordable) lip products. Although it's hard to pick, I think my favorite brand is Illamasqua. I don't own that many Illamasqua products because they're quite pricey.  

Last week I asked if there were any hyped products you disliked or any underrated products you loved. A few of you said you weren't loving the following hyped up products: BB Creams, Maybelline Color Tattoos, Benefit's They're Real Mascara or their Porefessional Primer. As for underrated products, MAC foundations and Natural Collection products were some of the names that popped up. 

Thank you for participating! I love reading your answers. Have a lovely weekend!

  3. I love Revlon's lip products too, they're such great value as the quality is great for the price! xx

  4. I own a LOT of Revlon products, mostly nail polishes and lipsticks, but I think at the moment Sleek is probably my favourite brand...I love their eyeshadows and their blushes are great too!

  5. I have a lot of Revlon (only because they sent my a bunch of products for the Allure contest). My next would be NYX. Definitely my favorite drugstore brand.

  6. Funny, my two most purchased brands are MAC and Revlon - in that order - as well. For Revlon, it's the lipsticks, as well. For MAC, it is mostly the blushes, then eye shadows, and other miscellaneous products. I think for both it's their affordability. My two most purchased high end brands are Becca and Armani. With Becca, their luminizers and luminous skin foundations are AMAZING, followed by their mineral blushes. For Armani - it's literally all my Fluid Sheers which I relied on to change the color of my foundations back when brands really only created either ivory, light yellow, and medium dark beigey-orange foundations. I would always look for the yellowest foundation I could find but within the light-medium spectrum and add my Fluid Sheer for a solid undertone match. I, however, still don't have a FAVORITE brand yet because not one brand is like IT for me. Hopefully one day! :)

    1. I meant to say that about MAC but it didn't come out as eloquently so I left it out, haha. I have a BUNCH of MAC products and I think it's because the quality is considerably better than drugstore but the price is mid-end so much more accessible than high-end. Hopefully you find a favorite :)

  7. I probably own the most from Nyx but it isn't my favourite brand, I have no idea which one I like the most because I only have a few different products from different brands. I do really like the quality & variety from MAC, though. xx

  8. You'll see a lot of Etude House products on my makeup bag. I like their cute packaging and the fact that it suits Asian skin.

  9. Like you, I also have a crazy amount of MAC in my collection, its definitely the brand I have the most of. I'm not sure if its my favourite brand though, I think I prefer brands like Lime Crime and Sugarpill over MAC :)

    1. I've yet to try Sugarpill! I want to though, I need some good matte yellow and red eyeshadows x

  10. It's so nice how you went into detail for the question for your readers :) Revlon has great products and I've been using it more often, but I heard it contains some harsh ingredients (as does Maybelline) that's banned in Europe. I hope it's not true!

    1. What! I didn't know, I'll look into that xx

  11. Definitely MAC. MAC is my love when it comes to lipsticks (very consistent quality!) but I'm trying to branch out some more. MUFE would take a second place, and I think I have a fair amount of NYX stuff. I'm getting myself some new Asian stuff though - I have a Japanese mascara that I'm quite impressed with and I have some Etude House stuff on my wishlist! xx

    1. I looove MAC lipsticks because of the consistency. You can pick any color on a whim and it most likely will be either great or good (I've yet to encounter a crappy one). xx

  12. I love the Natural Collection mascaras - they honestly live up to ones that cost over £15!

  13. Oh wow what a tough question... though I suppose when it came right down to it it would be Revlon because of the mass amounts of nail polishes (my favorite brand for polish) and lip products (I will always be obsessed with their lip butters and kissable balm stains). Otherwise I've got little bits and pieces from most everything!! I'd love to be able to afford some more M.A.C. stuff though <3

    1. I have so many Revlon nail polishes too! I can't believe I forgot to mention that! I guess I've forgotten about them since I decided to stop hoarding them xx

  14. Hi Coco! I love these Q&A's! If you look my stash, you'd find a lot of MAC, NARS, and Maybelline. I love Maybelline mascaras, and I think they're some of the better formulas out there for a fraction of the cost of a higher-end version. I have a bunch of MAC blushes and powder products, and I use them all the time. I love NARS and have an assortment of products from them. I don't think I have a favorite brand, actually! I really think every brand has something they do exceptionally well, and I like to try new products and new brands. I would faint if I won a shopping spree for Guerlain, though! Nobody does luxury like them! :)

    1. Ah, I only own one Guerlain product. Hopefully I'll own more in the future. True luxury indeed x

  15. Definately MAC and Catrice! I'm completely hooked on the blushes and lipsticks from MAC. Catrice is a cheap brand from Germany :)
    I would love to try Illamasqua's foundation as they have super pale shades (that are no where to be found in my country), but it's the price that holds me back...

    1. A lovely blogger sent me some Catrice and I fell in love with their The Nuder the Better lipstick xx

  16. I have a huge mixture of brands in my collection, I'm not very brand loyal at all! I have quite a few Illamasqua & NARS blushes but I'm not sure what my overall favourite brand is, I don't think I really have one.

  17. MAC and Missha! I've had an obsession with those brands lately. But I'm not so jazzed on MAC now...mostly because I really want some YSL lipstick instead now O_O

  18. You'd find mostly Mac in my makeup collection just because they offer such a wide range of foundation shades and their products are really great quality for an almost decent price! Lovely post, is nice to see what your readers think as well.

  19. My answer would be MAC as well. MAC lipsticks, Lipglasses, eyeshadows, and blushes dominates my collection. Almost all of them are limited editions.

  20. My answer would be Urban Decay for a higher end brand, and Revlon as a drugstore brand :D I adore Urban Decay ANYTHING! They can do no wrong in my eyes <3 <3 xxx

  21. MAC for me as well, I'd say nearly half of my makeup is from MAC! A lot is from Benefit as well. I love Illamasqua as well but also don't own a lot because of the price! x

  22. You'd probably find Urban Decay or Illamasqua. I love both brands and seeing as their quite pricey, I try and stick to them :)

  23. Revlon for sure! I have so many lip products from them.

  24. Ha! I was one of the ones that said that the porefessional and they're real are not worth the hype :)
    I also have just tried Illamasqua and I believe that when I live in Europe I'll be using it a lot, I actually purchased the blush 'excite' that you reviewed once and I'm in love with it :)

    If i can ask you a question for the weekly beauty question is... what brand is the one you havent tried and are really looking forward too?

    Besos linda!

  25. Fun question! I think MAC is by far the most heavily represented brand in my stash. This is for a few reasons: 1) I really do love the brand 2) Their price point is reasonable, which makes it accessible, and 3) I had a huge MAC obsession throughout University, during which I accrued a lot that still lives in my collection. I'm not sure if MAC is my favourite brand, but it will always be among my top picks! xo

  26. I love these question posts :) It's fun to see your answers and others' responses too! My makeup stash at the moment is so eclectic that I'm not sure which brand dominates, though it was YSL for a while last year!

  28. I love illamasqua aswell but I'd agree their stuff is really pricey, most of my collection is Avon, Benefit and MUA.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I think Revlon would be pretty high as pretty much all of the lip products I own are by them! I also have a few counts for MAC when I went crazy about them last summer. xx

  30. I love the lip products from Revlon as well! I really didn't like They're real mascara, it looks great on a lot of people but it looks terrible on me :-( xx

  31. Great series Coco :) I think you would spot a lot of Mac and Dior..

    ReplyDelete
  32. Mine is probably MAC as well mainly because I have a tonne of their lipsticks and blushers. I also have quite a few Benefit products!

    ReplyDelete
  33. The most products you would find if you took a peak at my makeup collection would be NYX. And yes, it is my favourite brand. I wish their face powders and foundations were better, but as for their blushes, eyeshadows, eyeliners, mascaras and nail polishes, they're top notch ^^ xx

    ReplyDelete
  34. I have so much stuff from Maybelline because I have the whole Fit me series and a mascara, too but I wouldn´t say that I have a favourite cosmetic brand :)
