Maybelline Great Lash. I'm with everyone else here - why? why? why? It smears like crazy on me and smells awful. Covergirl foundation - absolute crap, unless you like basically no coverage and, at least with the oil control formulation, a nasty smell. Avon Glimmersticks eyeliners - my aunt gave me some as a present, I felt bad about giving them away (so they lanquish in the bottom of my battle station), but yeesh, these are bad. They pull and tug like crazy on my sensitive eyelids, and don't last more than a couple hours on my oily eyelids, even with primer. Essie nail polish - don't like most of the colors, and most of the colors I've tried are difficult to apply without streakiness. Also chipping after only a day or two even with proper base and top coats. Most Ulta eye products and concealers - strangely enough, I actually like their Amped Lashes mascara (it truly is waterproof on me, which is rare) and their Fabulous Face pressed powder isn't a horrible thing to throw in your bag for mid-day touchups. The eye shadows and liners, though, have next to no pigmentation and don't last even with proper primer. The eyeliners also pull and tug like crazy. The concealers don't conceal nearly as well as they should, and usually don't last.
Foundation/BB cream - absolutely no drugstore anymore. Drugstore formulations generally clog my pores, make my face break out, don't provide enough coverage and don't last. I also prefer mid-end/high-end loose powder, though Nyx's loose powder isn't bad. I used to be a strictly no-drugstore concealer/color corrector girl as well (due to insufficient coverage and lack of decent color corrector options), though since discovering Hard Candy Glamoflauge and having consistent access to Nyx I've reconsidered my stance. I will buy drugstore or higher-end eyeliners (though I am picky about what kinds I buy as some are too hard for my sensitive eyelids and don't last), eyeshadows (though I do prefer higher-end or indie due to pigmentation and fallout), and lipstick. I also don't mind buying drugstore pressed powder. I prefer drugstore mascara since I hate spending megabucks on something you're supposed to pitch out every 3 months. I am careful about that since I wear contacts and have sensitive eyes. I also really don't care enough about blush or bronzer to spend megabucks on it (since my cheeks are naturally rosy). I also prefer to save my money on lipliners since drugstore colors are usually close enough to most of the lipstick colors I wear.
