Hello. i am using Maybelline products because its hypoallergenic and its cheaper compare to other branded cosmetics. I would suggest that you go for products that really suits your skin. there are products that are cheap yet its harms your skin. even expensive products can also cause allergies and doesnt fit your skin type. so its really safe to try products before buying it. try it from the tester in department store. better safe than sorry.

I am using mostly Avon cosmetics, from my lipstick, eyeshadow blush-on, eyeliner, eyebrow pencil, mascara, lip gloss, lotion that's about it. For my facial wash i use pond's, and i don't use any pressed powder or make-up foundation, i use it only for special occasions,i only use loose powder and Johnson's baby powder with pond's pinkish glow face cream and moisturizer everyday. I use other brands too, like Maybelline and Nivea when i run out of Pond's. Avon is very popular here and a bit cheaper than other brands like Revlon, LeOreal and Maybelline but i know that it is also international, so maybe you also have Avon there in your end. I am fond of these products because they suit me pretty well. Thanks and good luck in your search.

I really love the Bare Escentuals makeup. It is not cheap though but it does last longer than the liquid foundation. It is $25 for one jar which usually last me about 3-4 months. I like how it goes on, the coverage, it does not break me out and lasts all day long without having to re-apply. I have been using mineral foundation for about 3 years now and love it. I tried some liquid I had one day and it felt so heavy and I broke out from it. I have tried other mineral foundations one of them being Avon which is less than 1/2 the price of the Bare Escentuals but I did not like it as much. It was okay and would use rather than liquid. Mary Kay just came out with a mineral makeup and I might try, it is only $18 but will it measure up to Bare escentuals, I will have to see. As far as other makeup I mostly use either Revlon or Almay for mascara and not very picky about eyeshadows. The blush I use is Bare Escentuals warmth. Its great!!!!

No, I don't use them, sorry. I have heard, though, that Mary Kay is very good. They were originally formulated by a blacksmith who wanted to tan some hide and discovered that it worked wonders on his wife's skin. Or something like that...anyway, they are very good, I had a friend that swore by them.
