What make-up brands does your mom use?

Recommended Posts

My mother is long gone, but I rnember her makeup clearly--Ponds Angel Face pressed powder, a scarlet Revlon lipstick, and those short red Maybelline brow and liner pencils. That was for everyday; she had Avon that she used on Sundays, holidays, and rare evenings out. I ended up using Angel Face into the 90's until it was discontinued; and where I grew up no one was without the Maybelline pencils, which we held a few seconds in a lighter flame to make a smoother and heavier line.

My mom's a drugstore makeup kind of gal. She uses mostly Rimmel, and Almay. xD
I'll end up giving her products that didn't work for me, and she'll never use anything unless it's hers!

Mainly Estee Lauder, some MAC, although that might have changed. I'm not 100% sure because I haven't talked to her in years.

I always got the impression that Estee Lauder was her "nice" makeup for certain occasions. I think she now generally uses Cover Girl for her powders  and blushes. I think the lipsticks are all either Revlon or Estee Lauder.

 

She's not really a makeup person and mostly uses it because it's something you do. I'm sure a lot of it has to do with my grandmother who was heavy into fashion and makeup and my mother ending up on the opposite end. She does get very excited about makeup for me and is the worst kind of enabler when we shop together. I swear I always walk out having spent way more at Sephora than I ever intend to simply because she is at my elbow encouraging me all the way.

My mum is not a "makeup fan" at all, she has been using just drugstore products since ever (L'Oreal, Maybelline, etc), she doesn't even wear foundation (I know there are some other people too that regurlarly don't, it's just absurd to me cos I would die without), her makeup is: concealer, blush, mascara and lipstick (for special occasion a black khol on the waterline, lol)

I can tell for sure that there is a "high end" product that she is never without: Dior n.999, bright red!

My mom and my grandma have always (and forever) used Clinique. -matte 10 pressed powder -raspberry glacé lipstick -black/brown quick liner -whatever GWP mascara they send out. If it's a fancy night then whatever GWP (probably neutral) shadow and a little blush. Oh and of course, the dramatically different super yellow moisturizer! That's all my mom uses and owns in terms of make up. Since she wears it daily, she cleans out pans and gets lipsticks down to the plastic nub.

My grandmother is deceased, but she was a huge fan of Elizabeth Arden and Chanel.

 

My mother is a huge L'Oreal fan, but has some things from an array of makeup and skincare brands such as Lancôme, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Maybelline, CoverGirl, and Philosophy.

L'oreal and Maybelline and Revlon Those red Maybelline liner sticks. She always has lined her lips in the brown color and then used a red or orangey shade on top. She also uses Mally eye products and loves them. Josie Maran Argan Oil

My Mom buys her makeup from department stores, and normally goes for Clinique. But she's kind of switched to MAC as of late- she still gets both, but usually sticks with skincare from Clinique and makeup from MAC.

 

She's in her 60s, if that matters. She's so sweet! We just recently got a MAC makeover together, with my sister as well!

The only time I've ever seen my mom wear makeup was right after she started selling Avon. She thought she'd try it out so she could better describe the products to her customers. I think she had one pale silver cream eyeshadow stick, plain black mascara, sheer pink lipgloss and pale pink nailpolish. She got tired of it after about two weeks and then I became her guinea pig with all the new products lol.

 

My mom's always been an all-natural girl. I don't think she even wore makeup on her wedding day.

I can remember my mom wearing lots of Avon when I was younger.  She still wears a lot of Avon but now swears by Lancome foundations.  I also bought her an Urban Decay 24/7 liner a couple years back and I think those are the only liners she wears now.  And it's not makeup, but I remember she wore Chanel No. 5 on special occasions.  Every time I smell it, I think of her.

My mom is no longer with us and was not a make-up wearer at all,

but she had one lipstick that she had since the 70's because she used it so infrequently. It was Revlon Rum Raisin.

My mom wears a mix of drugstore makeup for her mascara, eyebrow pencil, foundation and blush. Sometimes Avon. My sister and I constantly give her stuff from our subs or stuff we don't like but she never ends up trying any of it.

Mostly Revlon and L'Oreal. I remember her using Mary Kay for awhile when I was younger, but I think she bought it because she had a friend that sold it.

My mom's gone now but she wore minimal makeup (foundation, pressed powder, rouge & lipstick). She had 1 of each item and I think it was mostly (or all) revlon.

Your mother sounds like my hero lol I could never have just 1 of each item, though I often daydream of the minimalistic lifestyle. I like color too much, though.

    • I didn't tryied the vitimin C serum cream for my skin, I think it very harsh when you are using it at your skin so it would be hard for me to have it I will try something else..
    • Today was pay day. I paid $22.90 extra on my credit card. I realized I'm now halfway done with my goal for the month - to pay $100.00 toward my credit card (including minimum payment). It's halfway through the month, so I am right on track! I made a $30 payment last week. I got deodorant, the only beauty item I need to replace. I ended up not getting the fancy new Secret or an Avon set, but just regular Secret Paris Rose from Dollar General. It was $5 - I thought that was a little high in price. I had this deo before during my No Buys, so it's a tradition. I didn't feel like spending extra or taking the time to order online. Too lazy to fill out the order pages! I sure am out of practice shopping! 
    • What am I wishing for right now? Yesterday I was looking at the Yves Rocher French website to see if they have anything new that might come to the US. I found something to love, but not a thing this time. In France, Yves Rocher has special salons. They have some fabulous sounding treatments. One I really fell in love with was an eyebrow treatment. They put eye patches under your eyes, then while those are on, they shape the eyebrows. After all is done, they apply an eye cream. That's what I'd love right now, and I suppose I could copy it at home with what I already have. 
    • It feels like it has been January for a long time, but we're only halfway through the month. There's still time to do a lot of things this month!  I have some empties! I finished my three DHC foil packets, the two mini micellar waters from my Yves Rocher Advent Calendar, and my Neutrogena Shampoo mini.  Now using up: June Jacobs Green Tea and Cucumber Shampoo mini Freeman Cucumber and Pink Salt Masque packet MAC Strobe Cream mini in Pinklite - This is a really nice cream that has a bit of pink color corrector and a bit of luminosity. It's great for a no makeup routine! Very pretty, and feels wonderful on the skin. I got it in an Ipsy bag.  I had the Freeman cucumber masque in my project use it up in January 2018. Now I have another one to use. There is a lot of product in the packet. It is enough for several weeks of use. But it is a clay masque, so it gets dry and messy in the packet. I recall having a hard time using it all up before. So I opened the packet all around the edges, and used a spatula to transfer the contents into an empty jar so it will stay fresh and be easier to use up. I'm looking forward to using it with my new masque brush! I will be having some fun masque and movie nights!     
    • The best concert I have ever attended was by Bohemia: the Punjabi Rapper. He was in Delhi (Lajpat Nagar) He is my favourite Artist and Rapper. When I saw him for the first time, my soul felt bliss ❤️ All the crowd of fans were going insane about him I can't forget that moment and want to attend more and more of his concerts
