The Difficulty of Choices and Choosing

An interesting question I saw on Musings of a Muse blog:
Choose one single makeup brand to buy from for all time.
For me, for a start, I'll narrow down my choice to a Japanese brand. Choosing a Japanese brand is safe, in a way because after all, each brand puts out so many different lines, you'll never be stuck with just one range of makeup. I'm cheating. I know. I haven't been exploring makeup for long. Honestly, it's the truth. Maybe in the past, I didn't get so much into makeup, because I had been using Western brands, which I realise today, don't really do anything for me at all. So, I was never a makeup person, until recently when I explored and discovered the joys of Japanese makeup brands. I have come to prefer makeup put out by the Japanese brands. At this point, I love Maquillage's 3D range so much, I could settle for Shiseido, but it's a tough fight because I also like the makeup that Kanebo puts out, eg. Coffret D'or and Lunasol. Even though I use Mac's powder and Legere's BB cream, I know that both Shiseido and Kanebo do put out great base makeup, so I'll never be in want either. So it's a hard decision, but at this time, by gut instinct, Shiseido wins. If I had to choose, I'd choose Shiseido. Mostly because I feel their colours and base makeup would suit me and my style better. I may regret it, because there is so much good stuff put out by Lunasol, but still, I'll go with Shiseido, today, at this time. What about you? © Copyright. All rights reserved.

This is a tough one. Have you tried Lotree? I digress... Part of makeup for me is the chance to try and try and try new stuff, so it's quite difficult for me to stay loyal to one brand I think!

I'd also be bored if everything I owned was by one brand...I like looking at my make-up cases and seeing all this different stuff in there :), lol.

Mine would most likely be Clinique. Have been using products from the brand for 18 years now, and it's never failed me. Well, except for the yellow lotion, which is too rich on my oily skin. The gel's great though.
