ask the bean: my favorite brands

Is this worse than picking a favorite kid?

If you’re new to the lil beauty bean, then welcome! Last month I proposed a new series where followers ask questions in the comments, and I’ll dedicate a post to their question. In addition to answering, I offered to give a review of their blog.

Today, I’m here to answer My Lil Slice of Life‘s question:

What makeup brands do you like best?

To start, my makeup collection is primarily drugstore, as I am a college bound high school senior with a very limited bank account. However, I do splurge every now and then on high-end products. I have for you my favorite drug store brand and favorite high end brand!

Maybelline

I use so many Maybelline products everyday, such as their Fit Me! concealers and foundations, but I also love their mascaras and Master Fix setting spray. Before I discovered Kat Von D’s Tattoo Eyeliner, my go-to eyeliner was from Maybelline, as well! I believe it was Master Precise… Alas, my memory fails me.

Tarte

Almost by default, I have to choose this as my favorite brand since I have owned or tried the most products from them. Don’t get me wrong, these are great products. Everything I’ve tried I would purchase for my own (Shape Tape concealer!!) or repurchase. My favorite part of this brand is their use of Amazonian clay. I have the Tarteist in Bloom palette and have tried one of their bronzers with the clay. Man, it’s blendable but still manages to stay put. Also, it kind of smells like chocolate. 🙂

 

Moving on to the other half of an Ask the Bean post-  review of My Lil Slice of Life.

I am very picky when it comes to who I follow because I don’t want the time I spend on here to be wasted with empty, grammatically incorrect gibberish (not throwin’ shade I promise). I want quality blogs and content, but most importantly I want to read content from a genuine person. My Lil Slice of Life checks these boxes. Her posts are entertaining and useful, and her personality shines through each post.

If you have stumbled across this post through Reader, you’re probably here for the makeup tag. My Lil Slice of Life does have makeup posts, but also about movies and books. Her blog is truly a slice of her life. My favorite post of hers has been her post inspired by “Cool Kids” by Echosmith.

Go check her out!
