    Stila...

    I got sucked to their cute little packaging. I mean, the colors are nice too. But I dont like them. Overpriced.

    I am a bit of a makeup butterfly, but here's what I have at the moment.

    Prescriptives Traceless tint as a base
    Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage concealer - this is a fabulous product
    Laura Mercier Eye Base in Wheat - brilliant stuff. Gives a fab, matte base for eye colour, or worn on its own takes away shadows and makes me look awake
    Bobbi Brown eye colour, powder and creme blush, which I also use as a lip colour
    Chanel nude lip liner
    NARS lip gloss
    Sisely mascara
    Shiseido blotting papers for taking away shine during the day. These are fantastic, and don't overload your skin with powder that can start to settle into fine lines.

    I have the Shiseido blotting papers too. I am not that pleased with them because it isn't that easy when you are on the go to tell which side to use. They don't have a lot of powder but enough to leave weird uneven traces if you have recently moisturized. My mother found some at Target once that were better. Alas, I do not have a nearby Target!

    I love Stila but I wish the lipstick were not in a paper tube. I read they were going to fix that but I bought a new shade at Sephora and it still sucks.

    Isn't the powder side always the inside of the fold? Could be wrong, and am too lazy to get of my arse to go look. I haven't come across the weird marks thing, but I haven't tried them just after moisturising.

    I like the Trish McEvoy powder eyeliner. You apply it with a brush; it gives you a really precise, subtle line.

    I like some Chanel foundations and some Lancome foundations. I prefer Lancome, Chanel and Borghese powders. I use mostly Lancome, Estee and Chanel Eyeshadows. I have tried many different products and these brands just seem to work the best on my skin and stay on the best.

    I hear all this good stuff about MAC, and I know Estee Lauder owns it so it's really no different than some of the other Estee owned lines I've used...but for the life of me I can't bring myself to look past the freakshows they use to endorse the line (MJ Blige, Elton, RuPaul, Liza) or the freaks that work in their stores and at their counters. For some reason I always assume it's makeup for drag queens and weirdos.

    I just bought a red lipstick from Rimmel b/c I'm too broke to replace all the expensive makeup stolen from me this weekend. I used to have a $23 Nars lipstick, this one was 3 bucks and the color isnt too bad on me. We'll see how much I like it when I go out.

    Best makeup ever bought though was She-Laq by Benefit. It's a makeup sealer, but can be used on brows, lashes, etc. I mostly use it to keep my red lipstick from bleeding or rubbing off. It's made from the stuff they use to keep jelly bean color from bleeding onto other jelly beans (really!). They DO still make it!

    Just because Estee OWNS it doesn't mean it is all churned up at the same time. I think Clinique is Estee owned too. MAC was acquired by Estee-it didn't start as Estee.

    I think Jo Malone is owned by them now too. It is certainly owned by one of the mega big companies.

    The business philosophy of Lauder is to bring the best to the masses. I think you would be surprised to find that many of the world's favorite brands are actually Lauder owned. This way they can appeal to the fashion forward teenage daughter to the grandmother.

    I am very fortunate to get a huge box filled with various Lauder products from one of my suppliers every year as a christmas gift. It's usually escorted into my office by several employees.

    My favorite makeups include
    Bobbi brown gel liners
    Guerlain meteorites instead of foundation
    philosophy lip glosses not sticky or too glossy
    almay mascara
    I have a favorite white shimmer/glitter eye liner that I bought at Target many years ago Sonia K? that I would love to find in another line.
    Drive a car, drive a boat, drive a plane. What does it matter? As long as I'm drunk!
