    sisley phyto-khol perfect eyeliner.

    i wear eyeliner every day. it's my staple. mascara, eyeliner and lip gloss.
    i have tried countless eyeliners - cheap, expensive, in between. and i find they are all either too greasy (so they smudge) or too hard, so it feels like you're raping your eyelid when you try to draw a line.
    it is PERFECT, soft yet firm, with staying power.

    i've had it in black and in steel (the perfect dark grey) and it's awesome. the only drawback is it's fucking expensive. but i use it every day and one pencil lasts me over a year and a half. it comes with a sharpener too.



    cover girl lash blast volume blasting mascara. awesome. and cheap. i used to be a diorshow devotee but this is way cheaper and just as good.



    l'oréal colour juice lip gloss. they're lancôme juicy tubes knock-offs but i actually like them better than juicy tubes. and they've got great colours. including some great cherry reds with absolutely no sparkle or shimmer to them, just glossy colour, so it ends up looking more like a glossy lip stain than gloss.




    avène hydrance optimale légère moisturiser.
    best. moisturiser. ever.
    i have combination, hyper-sensitive skin. can't take anything with any scent. this brand is the best for skin care products. they're the only brand that understands you can have oily yet super sensitive skin at the same time. and that oily skin needs lots of hydration and moisturising too.

    I've said it before but It's a 10 Leave-In conditioner is super fabulous!

    I love the Watermelon Crush color of the L'Oreal gloss.

    I was invited to a corporate staff day at a make up factory & they made clinique loreal lancome perscriptives & Elizabeth arden in the same place

    Also the high brand companies do all the r&d & then once they've marketed they use that chemistry in their cheaper brands

    Yeah, what you pay for with Lancome vs. L'Oreal or Maybelline is the makeup counter experience, slightly different packaging and perhaps greater variety of shades to select from.

    I heard about this. I remember watching Paula Begoun on tv and she said L'Oreal is owned by L'Ancome and all L'Oreal products are the exact same copy of L'Ancome ones for much cheaper.

    that might be true for most make up but i think it's not true for face creams. i have über sensitive and combination skin and i've tried pretty much every l'oréal and garnier face cream and that shit irritates my face. but then i can't really use lancôme or clinique either. and there doesn't seem to be a cheaper alternative to avène or biotherm or vichy. if there was i'd be all over that shit.

    That's strange. Check the ingredients then check the loreal stuff

    Biotherm is a luxury skin care company owned by L'Oréal under the Luxury Products division. Biotherm was acquired by L'Oréal in 1970. It is developed and manufactured in research laboratories in Monaco, under the direction of biologist Lucien Aubert and his team of researchers.[citation needed]
    Vichy (pronounced:*[viʃi]; "Vichy Laboratoires") is a premium brand of skincare, bodycare, make-up and anti-ageing products owned by L'Oréal under its Active Cosmetics division and is sold exclusively in pharmacies.

    I knew it! Isn't Estee Lauder and Clinique the same manufacturer too?

    tell that to my skin. i've tried all the garnier and l'oréal creams that could potentially work for my skin and they are either irritating or so light they don't moisturise at all. i think they also aren't perfume free, which my skin doesn't like. there are a couple of biotherm that i've tried that were ok, and a couple of vichy. none that i use regularly other than this vichy eye cream i used for a while and a facial scrub.
    but, none of the vichy or biotherm work as well for my skin as avène.

    Some of that may be just the percentage of ingredients used. Sometimes just a little less of X can make a big difference. You really have to search sometimes if you have sensitive skin.

    Maybe it was EA not EL?? I dunno it was a loooong time ago.
    I still have some perscriptives liners (pencil Eugh! I hate pencil liners, they're so hard & even when they're not draggy) and some other bits.

    ^ I hate pencil liners too but I might invest in the Sisley one that Sputnik is talking about.

    I am still looking for the perfect lip liner too - and it's not Mac!
