The Top Ten

I absolutely LOVE Younique and all their products. I have super sensitive eyes and skin and I tried the 3D mascara first. I was shocked that I no longer reacted to having mascara on... Bye Bye are the days of using product with formaldehyde in it. I was so impressed I joined the company and it has been a blessing in my life ever since. I am able to see exactly what is in each and every product so I can make an educated decision on what I am wanting to put on my face and skin. They treat each Presenter with grace and dignity and that we matter. We aren't just some name on a company list that they don't care about. They are the most honest, transparent, Godly, sensitive to the customers and Presenters needs people. We all have a voice, they appreciate input and suggestions and make us feel important and that we matter. It's an honor to work for such amazing people as Derek and Shelaine Maxfield and Melanie Maxfield Huscroft. I am 60 years old and have seen a lot of businesses in my time and tried a lot of different brands of makeup and skin care from the low end of the spectrum to the upper end of products. And by far I would recommend, use and share with others Younique's products hands down any day of the week over any other product out there. For only being 2 years old Younique is breaking all kinds of records and setting the bar for other companies to try to match. They keep the products fresh with new products coming out every Spring and Summer and what is super awesome about their products is that they are safe for any age. My youngest customer is 11 years old and is a cheerleader and her mother Loves the 3D mascara as there are no more fights getting makeup done for competitions. My eldest customer is 85 years old and just loves the 3D mascara as well and is loving some of the other products as well. So there is no age appropriateness with any products. They blend science, nature and the finest healthy ingredients to create the best possible makeup and skin care for their customers. Speaking of customers and customer service. I believe we have the best customer service around. Our first Christmas had many pallets of makeup orders going out to customers and somehow a major Canadian delivery service lost those pallets of orders... Just before Christmas... Do you know what Younique did? Let me tell you.. Derek ordered that All the missing orders be replaced and a 3D mascara was added to each order and were express shipped out to the customers so that they would have their package by Christmas time. The customers were also told if they did somehow receive their original package they could ship it back to Younique or keep it. Customer service and support is unbelievable from the top down.

I Love sharing my Younique products and the opportunity with others. It has blessed my life and is blessing many others and I am sure will continue to do so for many years to come. Validate, Uplift and Empower women globally is what Younique's mission statement is and they are doing that in so many more ways than just makeup and skin care... they are changing peoples lives. With the new Younique Foundation they are setting up for abused women they will continue to be a blessing to others. I Love Younique! For many, many reasons... God Bless.. Derek, Shelaine and Melanie.
I didn't know what great make-up was until I was introduced to Younique products, ESPECIALLY the mascara! It's a miracles in two tubes! There was a point after I started using the Younique Moodstruck 3D Fiber Lash Mascara and thought let me go back to my old dream team (3 drop drugstore brand mascara) this once and I was shocked, the difference was astonishing! (the old dream team made it look like I barely had lashes AND it was 3 coats! ) I can't believe I lived without the mascara for so long! I have really sensitive eyes and skin and Younique products are so good to my face♡ another one of my loves is the rose water, I have been using rose water for years but couldn't find one that was suitable for my skin and provided me with the benefits rose water should, now I cherish my bottle of Younique rose water... I honestly can't say enough about how great it really is!... I joined the company not long after I was introduced to it and it's opened so many doors for me that I'd never thought I would unlock! I wanted a career in Make-up and beauty but without qualifications no company would accept me or recognise my accomplishments as being self taught and I started to lose hope that maybe without qualifications (which would cost me £££) I wouldn't even get my foot in the door. Well guess what? YOUNIQUE accepted me and now I'm a qualified independent presenter and consultant working my way up the success ladder, I'm helping other less fortunate men and women who felt like I did or worse start up their own businesses, I'm getting opportunities to travel for work, people are even acknowledging my SELF TAUGHT make-up skills and asking me to do their make-up. Younique has truly been a blessing to my life, I wake up in the morning so overwhelmed by happiness I could cry (I have cried tears of joy once or twice). I've only been with the company a month and have been presented with so many opportunities, I'm so excited to see how much I and the company advance, BRING IT ON! So much love for Younique!
By far the best I had ever tried period. skin care, I've always spent little and lots of money in different, oh so many brands, here and there, the last one have many dark glass mini bottles in a set to diminish wrinkles, dark eyes, puffiness, etc, you name it, and spent more than $400, but also encourages you to go to get first a pro micro dermabrasion and peel before using those products to be well absorbed and see better results, " NOW I THINK,"WELL whats the point, get ting a professional service and buy a so expensive treatment!. What happened after a month? " not much, honestly I really did not notice great improvement, and I run out of the eye cream before the other bottles, Had to buy extra to keep up with the rest of products. Luckily I tried Younique Moodstruck fiber lash mascara, and I put it to the test, I went to the park and walked 20 minutes under the rain, and guess what? I was so impressed No raccoon eyes, my eyes looked so pretty and my mascara was intact. that's so wonderful, It really motivated me to try the Illuminate face cleanser, which is fabulous, the uplift eye serum with makes me crave for more, Lol, because my skin feels young when I apply a drop of this non oily but full of moisture gorgeous formula to my eyes and after a few weeks I compared pictures before and after and I looked a big difference already, of course I wanted then to buy a collection with the rose water, divine moisturizer, eye liners that do not smudge and really last all day, The new creme eyeshadow in elegant is so unique, feels spongy and stays on place, feels so light and glides so easy on my eye lid, but I am crazy in love with the lip stains, they are so subtle for every occasion, one coat on my lips look amazing for church and running errands, and 2 or 3 coats for girls night out, :). Now if you cannot live home without a shimmer on your lips, always keep your lip gloss in your purse, they are so creamy and not sticky, I used a different brand before and went for a haircut, oh so embarrassed when my hair dresser laugh about my hairs sticking on my lip gloss, and he remarked that, I had to wipe out. :( And fortunately I use Younique now, So happy, so so happy, I recommend it to any woman. And cannot wait to try their bronzer, woot woot :)...
[Newest]Love the company and the products!

2Motives Cosmetics
I love the custom liquid foundation! It is tailor made just for my skins needs and the perfect color. The consultant mixed my foundation after I filled out the foundation survey. That is where she started with my formula I wanted a matte foundation with very full coverage, I didn't want to add sunblock but probably will in my next formula. She got the color just perfect by mixing a base shade and adding yellow blue and green toners because that is what was needed for my foundation to match my skin. She had all of these colorful bottles with colors like purple, yellow, green, blue, pink and a bunch more I can't recall. She said that all of these toners are used to match her clients skin perfectly. I also have combination skin and she added moisturizing and oil controlling botanics. I chose to do the anti-aging botanical as well. The last thing that she asked me about was if I wanted a plumper in my foundation, and I did! This foundation just melted into my skin the color was so perfect I couldn't even see it in every light. The product washes off so easily because it is water based, but stays on all day and looks better throughout the day not worse. I am in love with my foundation I will never use anything else! This is the best. The best news was it actually improved the texture of my skin the longer I used it. The consultant said that was because it is a treatment foundation and had calming ingredients. The bottle also lasted 3 months because it had such great coverage with very little foundation. AMAZING! The rest of the line is fabulous too. I have a lot from the line now and love all of it! The pigmentation can not be beat! My favorite things are the blush/bronzer duo, elements eyeshadow palette, and the liquid sticks lipsticks.
I love everything about Motives Cosmetics! Motives have all high quality makeup and skincare for consumers and beauty professional! I love Motives Mineral Custom Blend system! As a professional make up artist and hairstylist I love the ability to customize cosmetics for my clients from liquid to powder foundation, concealer, bronzer, blush, lipsticks, lip stain tattoo covering... I also provide air brush makeup! If you use air brush you are actually customizing why not customize products that your clients can take home! I make extra income by providing my clients more services by matching the right products to them! ! Motives new packages are so beautiful! If you are a makeup artist and you are not using Motives Cosmetics! I have to say TO BAD FOR YOU! With Motives I'm not just a makeup artist I'm entrepreneur! I own my own business with no limit of how much money I want to make!
This is the best makeup out there! Foundations are custom made in every shade and unique to the person they are made for. The colors for eyeshadows are intense and blend perfectly. The liquid sticks lipsticks are to die for. They are so rich and pigmented. I have struggled to find a skin care routine and the skin survey is the best way to do just that. My skin has never looked better even in my youth. My favorite part is that the line is mineral based. The formulas are everything. The dual mineral foundation is a powder but so creamy and covers like no other compact I have ever owned, and I have tried so many lines out there. From the very expensive to drugstore. I have had my hands on A LOT of makeup since that is what I do for a living and now I can say my pro kit is 95% Motives! I love the full range of products they offer. They have a Motives for La La line for ethnic skin and it is life! So many cosmetic companies are not offering dark completion shades. This makes it so hard to find a foundation for dark skin tones and is so embarrassing not to have someone's shade when you are doing makeup application for a shoot or a wedding. No more of that non sense, MOTIVES has it all, and they stand behind their products!
[Newest]Motives has the finest line and selection. Colors are exceptional. My favorite is the custom blends in both liquid and powder

All the anti-aging products from Mary Kay, Avon, Arbonne, Estee Lauder, etc have been thrown out. BeautiControl just has an instant gratification and with continued use, shows major signs of improvement. My crows feet and the number 11's (between the eyes) were significantly and noticeably decreased within 4 weeks. I have been using the treatments for almost 4 months now and the fine lines are GONE! I'm a 38 year old just-quit-smoker and life-time sun bather of AZ, so that is just unbelievable to me. I will never stop using this stuff... EVER!
My Acne prone skin improved in ONLY 8 days after I attended a "Margarita Spa" at my neighbors home. I LOVE the feel instantly and BeautiControl gave a money back guarantee + the consultant called me back (never got that from the dept stores, Dermatologist's office, or ordering from online or T.V.) to check in & see how things were going. The skin care impressed me, my family & friends noticed the difference too that I quickly was ready to try the Anti-Aging treatments then I started to use the Mineral Makeup Line! That was 13 years ago! HUGE fan of BeautiControl as my family, friends and neighbors are now too! I had tried it all, nothing came close to both the quick improvements in my skin and the long lasting results!
Maintenance is maintenance is maintenance. As long as you have a good maintenance program from any of the leading companies you will have more youthful skin. BUT if you want to go farther and turn your aging skin back to a baby's bottom... well, The Instant Face Lift by BC is by far the best products I have used in years. The Microderm Abrasion crystals with buffer and the TFF cream makes my skin so young and vibrant looking. I can actually feel the TFF eye firming serum lifting my brows. And don't get me going on how awesome the Detox Body products are!!! The cost???... well, it's unbelievable!!! BC ALL THE WAY!!!
[Newest]Yes, we are the best! I've been using the products for over 25 years & a consultant for almost 20. BeautiControl has quality skin care and makeup for reasonable prices and we also give back to women.

Artistry is the best product I ever used. With the Essentials you are best care and the Time Defiance serie for Ladys who want looks beautiful. and the crown of all of Artistry is: Creme LUXURY. it let feel the skin 15 years younger.
My mom even uses it (she has sold another brand for 15 ) I also have very sensitive skin and its the only thing that doesn't make me itch
[Newest]I can believe this brand since they have their own organic farm. They don't do animal experience. They do it for themselves. I am proud of using it. I share the belief.

5MAC Cosmetics
I am a licensed esthetician and make-up artist for M.A.C. and have worked with many dermalogical brands as well as beauty brands. I promise that M.A.C. is a brand that is trust worthy. All the products are dermatologist tested as well as tested back stage before sold (to make sure they really work) and are non-comodenic (don't have ingredients that are not linked to breakouts). As far as the price when compared to other department store brands M.A.C. is actually the least expensive along with Clinique so don't get discouraged when you hear that its pricey. What can get expensive are some of the professional tools but they are totally worth it. And everyone should know that M.A.C. "gives back" by donating millions of dollars every year to people affected with HIV and AIDS as well as recycling to build playground equipment; plus M.A.C. is 100 percent cruelty free and is made for all skin types and shades. This is a great brand and in every aspect, but remember, every one is different so try it before you knock it and whatever you choose to use; as like as you love it, it's the best product for you! =)
I luv mac, its wonderful, they have a wide range of colors in foundation, matches my complexion extremely well.
All races all sexes all ages! MAC is made for the professionals and for the people who love it. MAC has the best pigmentation especially for media purposes, which that's why it was first created. MAC also is the top choice of make up used by New York Fashion Week every year. Everyone knows MAC is the best!
[Newest]I love MAC it's the only brand I feel flawless using

6Estee Lauder
Estee Lauder is by far the best. They have the #1 best selling foundation in America! Double Wear is my favorite, it stays on forever and there are like 30 shades to choose from and the beauty advisor matches you! Also, they have like 8 other types of foundation! And, their skincare is varied they have stuff for dry, normal, oily, and sensitive skin. I also like their selection of color in eyeshadow, liners, lipsticks, glosses, and even nail polish. They are by far my favorite cosmetic company.
I don't really like to put anything on my face, but lately I've been trying the moisturizer from estee lauder & it feels so natural, I love it everyone even tells me my skin looks smoother & more radiant
I have been using Estee Lauder Makeup and skincare for almost 30 years and its AMAZING! When I got married, in my 20's, I bought all my bridesmaids their makeup because I didn't want them to wear anything else! Double Wear foundation can't be beat... Have lived in the south my whole life and NOTHING stays on better in hot, humid weather! The Advanced Night Repair is my favorite skincare product for smooth, glowing skin... Love EVERYTHING about Estee Lauder!
[Newest]I have tried everything under the sun for my skin... It will break out at the drop of a hat. Estee is the only thing that it is continuously happy with.

7Urban Decay
Not only does urban decay keep up in the color department with makeup forever and mac... it exceeds them by making products that are parabin free and vegan! The packaging is suuuper cute and the products are high quality(and not more $ than previously mentioned company's hense U ACTUALLY GET WHAT U PAY FOR!) I'm a total ud freak and for GOOD REASON. My grandmother is actually the one who introduced me to their product. Its amazing that they really do have something for everyone!
I love the Urban Decay eyeshadow palettes! I have Naked and I'm absolutely in love with it! I love all the colours they have and the fact that they don't test it on animals. The quality of the makeup is really good as well. Another urban decay product I love is the Big Fatty mascara! My lashes look unbelievable after it!
Urban Decay is AMAZING. They do not test on animals at all and have a wonderful range of fashionable products.
[Newest]The Urban Decay eye shadow blends beautifully lasts all day with a good primer. Love it!

8Mary Kay
Mary Kay is amazing. It makes your skin soft and smooth. The skin care is second to none. The prices are amazing. They have great customer service, 100 percent money back guarantee, try before you buy AND by having a party with your friends to get makeovers you can earn FREE product. The consultants offer free gifts with purchase and they deliver to you. What more do you need? Oh and the Mary Kay Charitable Foundation gives millions to help end domestic violence against women and children and also gives to cancer reasearch to help find cures for cancers affecting women. Find a consultant today and be amazed. Thank you Mary Kay!
Mary Kay is the BEST makeup ever... From their skin care (which is awesome) to their makeup line. You cannot beat their 100% satisfaction guarantee and try before you buy. It is a great career opportunity, also... One of very few if not the only company to not compete with its sales consultants. Love, Love, Love it and after 3 years of using the products, I decided to join them as an Independent Sales Consultant and have never been happier. It is a company that is progressive, does not use animals to test and is based on the philosophy: Faith first, Family second, and Career Third.
The Miracle set is A real miracle< the foudation is MAgic, I call it products with intergrity>
[Newest]Mary Kay has a miracle skin care tried a lot of skin care stuff to mine the Mary Kay is the only one helped me with my acne. Love Clear Proof.

Mary Kay has been an industry leader for the past 52 years. They are the official beauty sponsor for Project Runway for the past 2 seasons AND next the Country Music Awards. Their products are amazing and deliver what they promise; safe for all skin types and multiple formulas to find YOUR perfect skin care regimen. I've been using Mary Kay since I was 18 years old and I will never put anything else on my face.
[Newest]Yes, the best mascara in the world

10Bobbi Brown
BOBBI BROWN COSMETICS is the best! Makeup was invented to ENHANCE beauty, not cover it with un-natural colours and products used for artistry makeup, so Bobbi Brown should be number 1 because all their stuff does just that! <3 The first thing I ever bought was the Long Wear Gel Eyeliner and Ultra Fine Eyeliner brush, and they are the best makeup products I have ever bought! Bobbi Brown is awesome!
Bobbi Brown cosmetic is the only Brand have very Wide natural foundation shade that caters all skin color and skin condition. Brand that teaches makeup application at the easy way and very natural approach look.
Leaves your face flawless. The lip gloss feels amazing on my lips. I stopped contouring because with the foundation does everything for your face.
[Newest]After trying most of the other "brand" name cosmetics, I must say that Bobbi Brown beats them all. According to my friends they see my face "glow" every time I wear it. And I have gotten lots of compliments on my eye shadows. I totally recommend Bobbi Brown!

The Contenders

I've been using Clinique since I was a teenager. I've tried different products off and on over the years (I'm 37 now) and I go back to Clinique every time to fix the problems that were created when I tried to change. I'm using the acne and anti-aging products and having great success with them still. I get compliments all the time on how great my skin looks. I have never thought it was anything special, but when I switched back to Clinique a few years ago after having strayed away for a while, I started getting compliments again! Love it! I will get my daughter started on it soon!
When I was 11, I got my first zit. My mom rushed me over to the Clinique counter at Macy's and bought me my very first Type 3 (3 step). I'm 26 now, never suffered from another blemish in my life. My skin is radiant from the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep. I love my skin. It's my best feature.
their products are so safe because its the only brand that allergy tests all of thier products. which is a TON better than all that other "hypoallergenic" BS. look it up! AND they actually custom fit your makeup to you there is like 8 different kinds of foundations!!the consultants are highly trained and friendly. by far better than mary kay. you can go buy it in a store even! and WAY better than mac, more affordable and not general makeup made for every skin type
[Newest]The best, the best! Hands down.

I love this product, although I can't always buy it and regress to other brands due to the price. I have to say as a whole, it has a positive effect on my lifestyle and skin. I look better and people immediately react to the Chanel name if I'm wearing their nail polish or any product, so it is worth buying and one is bound to have complements!
I have very sensitive skin and never had any problems with any product by Chanel. I use Lipsticks and glosses, a puder foudationa and a liquid foudation. Never dried out my skin, never led to a rash.
best products ever, so natural eye colors
[Newest]I have used Chanel for years. Worn the eye make up for 24 hour shifts. Told it still looked good at 0300. I have sensitive skin. Tried other products but always go back to Chanel. I am careful to but only what I need due to expense. I'm 68 and love the results.

Dior products are the BEST! I LOVE them... Especially the creme to gel foundation... It leaves your skin looking FLAWLESS and so BEAUTIFUL! Totally recommend Dior products to EVERYONE! Trust!
It's the best of all! I love all of their products! Especially the hydra life moisturizer for dry skin conditions!
DIOR is the best! All the products are too good.. Especially the shades for lip wear.. I love them all...
[Newest]From Make up to skin products Absolutely the best, specially for dry skin

hey! your products are really awesome. I wish there are more for teens and a good conditioner and shampoo for curls... ;)

because of its product quality
Love the glamshine gloss... SO. DARN. PRETTY.
[Newest]Really awesome! Using it for a decade or so... My mother has also switched to it...

I love the products, I use only Oriflame for the last 3 years and all works great for me. Every month they have new products and special offers. None of these products have been tested on animals and they are the first company in the world which started with 100% natural products. But the most important is that they also have earning opportunities for everyone who need extra money or you can even build your own business.
Me and my family we are using Oriflame products for past 13 years. Even if I can afford much more expensive cosmetics I have biggest trust in Oriflame products. First reason is because they are based on natural ingredients, second reason the results from using them are great. Third reason- I love their packages. Such a great quality. It's true what most of people say, once you try Oriflame products you fall in love and stay with them. I totally agree and recommend. Worth to try them at least. The best thing is that even if you would try them them for few days and use a little bit you could still return if you wouldn't like them and receive full money back!
I love the oriflame products. I m going to start my beauty salon and I want to use oriflame products in my salon

I love two faced eye products, my favorite is the anti crease potion
I Love this brand mainly because their products smell amazing! That's what I want! All their lip products are bomb! My favorite it melted. 10/10
I love many of the products from this company. They have a moisturizer/ under eye cover up that is genius

I am Definitely a NARS girl... I love the fact that they offer very vibrant as well as neutral colors! Unlike Mac... Nars makeup lasts all day long! It is worth every penny!

Illamasqua is so great. I have a couple of their blushes and eye shadows. I don't give a damn how much they cost, because they're such great products.
The products are amazing, love the mascara, pencils are so soft and stay put, eye serum is amazing, it's all fantastic value and quality, will not buy anything else now. X

20Make Up Forever
I love make up forever. It has a great concealer and wonderful HD makeup that matches everyone woman of color. The make up lasts forever and great for photo finish. The lip sticks and eye shadows are awesome and last a long time, especially with a primer. Try the make up, you would love it.
Love the make up range very good on skin and makes you have a glow! Doesn't matter if you have darker skin too so very good for black ethnics too I loved it there is something for everyone
You could at least spell the name of the company right. It's four words.

Avon has good quality make up for a reasonable price. If fits from Avon I never doubt the product. And they also have, I don't what its called, but like a booklet of all the things they have, new and old stuff so all you have to do is find a representative and order it from them so you don't need to go to actual Avon store to get their products. and you become a Avon rep. and make some extra money if you need it.
color cosmetics and be used by all races.
Its really very good, as I'm using avon products from few weeks back. It's awesome.
[Newest]I think that Avon is right up there with the best of the cosmetic companies. And fits all budgets. You won't know until you try it.

Great products although expensive. Great tutorials to see and learn from. Ideas for different looks and packaging appears neat and special.

It's definitely in competition with mac.. Unlike mac it has wide range of eye shadows and that too at reasonable cost.. I have used their lip pods and are awesome.. So the ones who want the same effect like mac at reasonable price.. Go and grab it...!
Its the best products that I was waiting for my oily skin and I am so happy with the makeup base which do not need to many touch ups in couple of hours and its hassle free to enjoy party and even work as well. Thanks
It is the best in the world

24NYX Cosmetics
Such great colors, they even have a lot of different choices! Such as, nail polish, beauty products, hair care! All I can say is that they are AWESOME! Definitely check it out!
It is the best makeup I ever used in my life quality Wise perfect and for the price Wise it is excellent. Go NYX Go
Nyx oh where to begin... I'm obsessed!
[Newest]Nyx is great quality for low cost.

25Bare Escentuals
Bare minerals is the most natural makeup out there, especially for me only being 14 I need makeup that will give me coverage but not break me out or clog my pores, bare minerals lets your skin breath whilst treating any breakouts. There powder foundation and blush are so pigmented and easy to apply. Overall the best brand out there definitely not disappointed with any of there products :) xx
I have used most all of the make up brands above and this is the best make up by far! It gives me great coverage all while looking natural. It's the only make up that does not cause me to break out. All if the other brands (including Clinique) aggravates my skin and I get pimples even now that I'm in my 30's. I love the bare minerals eyeshadows also. They have such rich colors and cover so well. I truly appreciate that since I've been using this make up over 10yrs ago that people now stop me and compliment my skin all the time. If it weren't for this natural makeup I would have a severe case of acne.
I can't believe that bare minerals is ranking so low. Not enough users are voting! I like other makeups for certain things, but I won't use anything else on my skin! Especially loving the new complexion rescue! What id love more is cheaper prices or birthday coupons or something. But the product is the best by far!
[Newest]Best make up I have tried in my 34 years! Love the coverage, the ingredients and the look!

26Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics
CRAZY PIGMENTATION especially the lip tars which remained a CULT PRODUCT. I LOVE OCC!


German quality and certified products. You can practically eat the Aloe Vera products. I have personally tried most of the headliner products, as well as the hair care series, skin care and all aloe products. I have never spent my money so well. I would recommend these exceptional company to any person who really cares about their looks, health, and lifestyle.
The best company on the world. All certified products by Fresenius Institute, Dermatest and IASC. Top quality and reasonable prices! What more we could need?
LR Health and Beauty Systems is the best of the best, the only problem is that they don't don't have a large variety in the makeup line, other than that they do everything exceptionally well
[Newest]The best ever...

29MAX Factor
It lasts longer than other products.
Max factor is safe for any type of skin
It gives you perfect finish... That's why I love max factor

Radiant lifting foundation is best for woman over 50 up. I use shiseido for more 20 years and never change
Best product around with the longest history in RD in cosmetics. Being with Shiseido for over 30 years.
I love this cosmetics. My skin become soften and look younger after I used
[Newest]Their skincare products work!

31Laura Mercier
Laura Mercier should be #1, the beautiful cosmetics line isn't any typical cosmetics line its luxury blended with skin care and with classy and fun colors. Laura Mercier is a genius, she created primer to protect her face from every day wear of make up and laura mercier doesn't have a "one size fits all" primer she has one according to your type of skin and according to your style as well... After using laura mercier I noticed my skin looked so amazing and because of this line I now have flawless skin. Love this line the best in price and in luxury and for the long time loyal client...
My mom and I have been using it for several years and its the best. It leaves are skin radiant and flawless. Nothing out there in the market can even come close to Laura mercier cosmetics and skin care.
Best make up I ever tried. Fell in love with the natural way my skin and eyes look. Felt compliments all the time

Always thought I had problem skin, turned out I had problem products... Having tentatively tried Tropic Skincare's Nourishing Skin Revive and finding it light, hydrating and simply lovely to wear, I have now chucked out all of my other cosmetics and skincare ranges and settled for the best I have found. Gone are my teenage spots (I'm 54), and I am complimented on my complexion :). Totally vegan range, no animal testing, last for AGES (a little really does go a long way) and the botanical mineral makeup is the lightest, most breathable products I have tried. It took a lot to move me from Sanctuary for their body products but I am in love with Tropic's Body Smooth/Body Love, and as for the body oils - well, they smooth hair and skin and smell divine. I could go on - but enough to say Tropic skincare products are fab you lous...
Quite simply the most gorgeous and easy to use skincare I have ever used. Very quick and simple cleansing routine and suits all skin types so my problem skin can benefit all through the month despite hormonal changes that other brands just couldn't cope with. All the products are so natural but also very effective and they are an absolute pleasure to use due to the ingredients all being so yummy. Everyone comments on how good I look these days (after years of struggling with problem skin! ) and the body products have the most delicious smell that lasts and lasts and leave your skin soft and smooth for he longest time.
I love wearing quality skincare and cosmetic products but I don't like discovering that the products I am wearing on my body have been tested on animals and contain a bizarre amount of potentially harmful chemicals! When I discovered Tropic and read the ethos behind the company, I was intrigued enough to try. Now my whole family is converted to the Tropic product range (including the men! ) - it's even safe to use on my dogs! For a company that is still new to the market, Tropic news is spreading fast. This is proof that you don't have to pay through the nose for top quality, ethical products! Thank goodness for Tropic!
[Newest]Have been converted to both skin care and make up. Natural and pure. That's what I like - and it's a reasonable price too. Ticks all the boxes.

Love it first eye shadow does not bother me

34Merle Norman
My grandmother died at age 105 but people thought she was in her 80's when she died. My aunt had surgery and the person who went to transfer her to her room went back out to the nurse saying she didn't see a 70 year old in the recovery room. She was amazed that the person she thought to be in her 40's was 79. My other aunt was in her 80's and though to be in her 60's. My mother looks to be in her mid 60's but is 83. And I still have no wrinkles or look my age and I will be going to my 45th high school class reunion this year. Merle Norman works!
I use the miracle mask and booster and it is great for acne prone skin. It heals blemishes very fast. You mask every other night for 30 minutes and mix the booster with the mask once a week. The mask is also a excellent exfoliator for people with acne scars. The best thing is that the mask is only $17.00 and the booster is only $12.50. You can determine whether you want the booster with the mask or if you just want to buy the mask alone, but I would buy both to get the best results.
By far the best skin care and color products. If you realize merle norman has had products for years and other lines have just now come out with them. The best color selections and foundation coverage while looking natural. I love it and I will never wear anything else!

It's food that skin eats. It means really good and no harm for skin.
Simply wonderful
Weleda Skin Food is amazing! Works on even the driest hands, so soothing, smells great and is 100% natural. no nasties and from an ethical company!

36Burt's Bees
Why is this not on this list? It's the best brand ever
I love Burt's bees products!
Unlike a lot of these other brands Burts Bees uses premium natural ingredients, is paraben and sls free and doesn't test on animals to sell in China... plus I love the smell of their products.

Origins all natural products leave your skin feeling wonderful and fresh. No harsh chemicals or artificial fragrances/dyes to weigh you down. And they're one of the ONLY lines (even among those claiming to be all natural) to use a natural preservative system so they really are as close to the tree as you can get! Their skincare and makeup are both product lines that genuinely deliver on their promises.
I love everything about Origins. The peppermint smell makes me want to use it daily. These products help my skin so much. Biggest fan ever.
Everything smells wonderful and fresh and you instantly feel as though you are doing the best for your skin.

38Essential Cosmetics
Love your products!
The most amazing make up its light to wear and lasts all day!
I love their makeup and PRICE!

39Yves Saint Laurent
Love the eye shawdow and new eyeliner
Have we forgotten about it?

40Guinot Institut Paris
I have used many of their products and I am always amazed by the great effect they have on my skin (face and body). My skin is very sensitive and I haven't found other brand that works as good as Guinot.
Best products out ther for sure are Guinot!

41The Body Shop
Love the products on my skin, very gentle, doesn't irritate and looks great. My skin looks and feels so much better since using them and love the fact that natural and community fairly traded ingredients used. So not only looks good, it does good too
The body shop products are just amazing. They are easy to use, long lasting and so gentle on very sensitive skin like mine. Always look forward to their new products which seems like every week! Would always recommend the body shop!

Since changing my skincare and cosmetics to Arbonne my skin has improved massively! I have gone from having problem skin to near-perfect skin thanks to Arbonne's products which are botanically based, vegan certified and free from all the nasties found in most beauty products. I won't talk about each individual product because it would take too long! But the It's A Long Story mascara not only makes your lashes look super long and beautiful, it actually helps eyelash growth too! And the foundation has breathability and so even on those rare occasions you end up sleeping in your makeup, your skin is still perfect the next day! And it is really long lasting, I ran a marathon last year and when my mum met me at the finish line she couldn't believe how good my makeup looked after 4 hours running 26 miles! A fantastic range of products that are pure, safe and beneficial.
These are the best products that I ever used. Unlike others over the years that get put into drawer, due to them not doing what they say will do, Arbonnes products are not tested on animals not do they use animal bi products across the whole range. Nowhere else that I know of will offer you products to take home and try to help you decide if you have made the right choice. All the products do not contain nasty chemicals or ingredients such as parabens, petroleum, formaldehyde, acetone, waxes, dyes amongst others. The full ingredients with nothing hidden are fully displayed beside each item on the website. This isn't always easy to find with other brands. Being ph correct, hypoallergenic, dermatologist tested and not forgetting botanically based. I could talk all night about Arbonne. Even better there is something in the large range for everyone and to suit different needs. Arbonne should be right at No1 without a doubt. I am happy that I know exactly what my family are using. The great discounts, offers and fantastic service could not be compared with. Very convenient that you can order yourself in your own time also and deliver straight to address of your choice. Anything I can buy is got from Arbonne. ❤️ Love Love Love it all ❤️
I love the skin care and nutrition products! I am a teacher and always got sick several times a year, until I started using the immunity booster drink every day. I am so much healthier and look better with Arbonne products. Prices are comparable especially with the discounts and hostess benefits! Hosting a party allows you to get up to 80% off and free $50 product! I love the green commitment Arbonne has and that all products are pure, safe, and beneficial. I lost my mom to cancer and am so glad that Arbonne offers products that are free of many harmful ingredients. Arbonne has given me a healthier option with personal hygiene products and nutrition for myself and my family. Thank you, Arbonne!
[Newest]Best skin care and make up ever. I have a pretty good collection now and still want more. love it love it love it xxx

46L.A. Girl

I love their products! Great price and awesome quality! I have mild acne and they have a great line of foundations that are great for coverage and actually helps! Takes away redness and relaxes the skin. If you have oily skin (like me ) this is great because it absorbs the oil! Also is very lightweight! The foundation looks so natural and perfects it's like you always had flawless skin! Also matches my reallyyy fair and pale skin tone!
I am in love! You should try it to even if you have acne or not!
Everything is just so good! Their products look so good on skin and are very lightweight! They have amazing deals and always have great sales! There are reviews on their website that tell you what other people think, too!
It leaves you with perfect silky smooth skin after you use it.
[Newest]All natural, cruelty free, and high quality... What more can I ask for? I live their CC cream. I'm fully covered without looking cakes.

51FM Group Cosmetics
Fm is by far the best cosmetic company out there! I've been using the products for 3 years would never go back to anything else. My skin is much better, my make up looks great, my perfumes last a lot longer and smell nicer and even my home and pets smell nicer using the home products! What more could you ask for? Oh yes a great income I get from being a team leader and recommending the products to others
Very good cosmetic products. Very good smell and quality of perfumes. SIMPLY THE BEST...
A fantastic company to work for, they really do look after their distributors, our team support is amazing and the products are high quality, yet affordable for all to buy.. My face has never looked better... Mineral makeup no nasty chemicals, so no skin issues... Fragrances are great and last all day long!

55The Victorian Garden Organic Skincare
Started in 1950 by a Victorian herablist! For those girls like me who LOVE Vintage products and who worry about all the toxic ingredients in skincare today, these are outstanding products. They're made in South Africa but we found them in Taiwan and Ireland! They even make up Tudor products from 16th century, and one of their hand creams was made in 1860. I have travelled the world and used many expensive ranges but I'm sold on this very affordable range - loads of choice and my skin is completely rejuvenated! Gets mine and my friends' TOP VOTE for "best in the world"!


Artistry is the best so I always suggest everybody you should be use this...
I will always prefer attitude

The second brand in Europe
Good quality
I use these products and really satisfied.

I absolutely LOVE revlon! The packaging is appealing, shade variety is wonderful and everything I have tried is of great pigmentation. My favourite things are their lip products!
Revlon is great for starting out or if you have a tight budget. You can buy revlon at ulta and most drugstores, but I love it from target. Great shades and formulas and revlon continues to amaze me!
I love all its products.. there are wide range to select from and also safe..

Sleek is a Great brand, the prices are good and the pigmentation is awesome!

62Rimmel London

Aveda is the only 100% wind powered company. Absolutely no animal by product or testing. Paraben free among many other harmful chemicals. All ingredients are organically and sustainably sourced. Try actually have their sourcing stories on their website. Better than all of that, the product actually works. Their make up line is not huge but I love if because I can mix different eye/ lip colors to make the most intense gorgeous colors. It is also very versatile, ie. I use my eyeshadows as lip color, my blush as eye color etc. they have no liquid liner due to the chemicals you need to produce such products but they have something called transformer. It makes dust from an eye color liquid therefore usable as a liquid liner. It's also a great primer. I recommend this product to everyone! Along with their hair care products. By far the most amazing I've used.

64Lime Crime
Love their colours.

It is the best make up company ever used by me... Their mascarras are the best in the town. But yea it's expensive as it's my brand..

74BH Cosmetics
Cheap when on great discounts and product looks worth more, packaged great at least mine where but no gifts,! Edition is great for very bold and colorful looks vivid and playful if you like making a statement its great I love it and Shany cosmetics. Great palettes but the base is so important for all these color look for N.Y. X cosmetics that base and the jumbo white pencil in white buy and apply them let it dry and dab on those great colors. Enjoy those secrets for those that don't know a must have.
Bh cosmetics is awesome. The product stays on longer than 24 hours and when you try to clean it off it's so easy the it feels like the eyeliner never dried out the product is outstanding And the eyeshadow is so beautiful to wear you won't want to take it off
Good price Good quality. Love them.

75Yves Rocher
Absolutely natural, affordable products, would really love an improvement in their make up line, more lines of makeup with all natural ingredients, more blushes and bases.
This brand have so good products, I have used them for years, they are really natural and I trust this brand. I hope they can keep my confidence.
Absolutely amazing foundations, all cosmetic but please put some spf on your foundations

90Physicians Formula
I've used this make-up in the past and am really impressed with their newer line-up of products. CHECK OUT THEIR tutorial videos-fabulous and so easy!
I can't wait to slim down my make-up kit and start using mostly Physicians Formula products again-this time hopefully for life! One suggestion to the design team/artists @ P.F. would be to develop a loose bronzing powder? Forgive me if I didn't see this in your line-up if it exists already. Also, any of your powder brush containers that are refillable/all-in-one and very sleek & portable are greatly appreciated. Excellent job P.F. staff-you rock!
