Lancome
Clinique
L'Occitane

As for cheaper stuff: Crabtree and Evelyn, Body Shop.
I've bought Healing Garden and stuff from Bath and Body Works, but it's not the same "richness."

Anyone have any info or experience with:
Korres and Perlier/Elaria?

For skincare, currently loving Clarins and Kiehls. But on the lower end, St Ives Collagen Elastin face moisturizer is great and only like $6.

For bath/body stuff, I am not really brand loyal. BBW, Body Shop, Loccitane and Philosophy mostly. And cant beat good ole Dr Bronners castile soap in yummy almond! Laura Mercier does some yummy bath stuff too.

I love love Korres lip butters, the ones in little pots. A decent sheer color splash. I have heard folks talking up Korres skincare, but havent tried it myself.

For makeup, I am loving Nars and Shiseido. A few loves from Guerlain and Dior. And Estee Lauder is starting to really pickup their game. Laura Mercier has some nice colors too.

I am really liking Boots (available at Target and on Drugstore.com), Melvita (French Organic skincare line just expanding to the US) and Caulidie (another French line, available at Sephora).

I swear by all things Philosophy for skin care and most things Bare Minerals for make-up.

Skin care: Weleda
Foundation: Lush Cosmetics Colour Supplement in light pink
Lip gloss, blush and eyepencil (which I rarely use): Don't have a favorite. Blush must be the liquid variety.
Bath and lotion products: Doctor Sweet Tooth, Fortune Cookie Soap, Lush Cosmetics

Mostly MAC and Origins for me. I'm allergic to the NYS eyeliner (gel pencil) but I absolutely love it, and take an antihistimine in the morning when I know I'll be using it so my eyes don't sting and the tears don't smudge the rest of my makeup.

Wintertime I use MAC liquid foundation. Warmer months I generally stick with Bare Minerals.

I love MAC's Painteur eyeshadow primer and their gel eyeliners, as well as their mascara. Those things I never skimp on.
I also use Cover Girl Outlast lipstick because I hate the taste & stickiness of traditional lipsticks and I can't be bothered to touch it up several times a day.
I use Cetaphil cleanser, and 3-4x a week I use a sonic cleansing brush.
Oil of Olay Professional line for face & neck skin creams.
Lavanilla body cream
A kids SPF 50 spray-on sunscreen for when I'm going to be spending a lot of time outdoors, and an SPF 15-20 in moisturizer/makeup for a mostly indoor day.
Eyeshadows and cream blush are drugstore brands. Currently using NYX liquid eyebrow pen.

Lancome, then Estee Lauder.

After a certain age... like 40... moisturizers are super important. I discovered that the Cover Girl BB creme, which contains a good proportion of moisturizer, didn't flake and lasted longer than several high-end BB/CC cremes that I tried (I'm serious).

I tried Dior, Shiseido, Bobbi Brown, Guerlain, Smashbox... nope, Cover Girl BB works best on dry skin.

I tried Cover Girl as a last-ditch experiment... and they made a believer out of me.
