I love the threads about makeup on here, and I was wondering:

What's your favourite makeup brand; one drugstore, one high-end?

Mine is:

L'Oréal for drugstore
MAC for high-end

What brands are your favourite?smile

Very hard to pick though as I use a lot of different brands depending on the product!

I own far more Rimmel than MAC since I've had kids, it used to be the other way around. smile

Budget - Rimmel I guess. I don't really use drugstore make up
High end - currently Charlotte tilbury

Not that I own much from anywhere. blush I really need an overhaul tbh!

I love Bobbi Brown make up, her eye make up such as shadow and pencils are unbeatable imo, I also rate Hourglass for their face powders.

NYX from Boots is reasonably priced and offers pretty good value.

RadiatorWatch Sat 11-Mar-17 08:27:40

Budget - L'Oréal
High end- Chanel

I've been quite impressed by Make up Revolution recently too

MathsFiend Sat 11-Mar-17 08:43:41

It changes all the time. But at the moment I'd probably say

Mid-range. Rosie @ autograph
Hugh-end. Charlotte Tilbury & NARS

RealHouswifeofBury Sat 11-Mar-17 08:46:37

Budget. L'Oréal
Mid No 7
High. Estée Lauder

Hard to choose one as I like different products from different ranges. But I would probably say

budget - Kiko
Luxury - Chanel
