Ladies...Make up help please.

I am so fed up with drugstore make up...
Do any of you buy your make up at the big department stores?
I finally bought some concealer and mascara at the MAC counter at Nordstrom, but now I need a decent foundation.
Usually I'm so cheap with my make up, I only buy at the drugstore, but now I'm realizing you get what you pay for.
Which brands do you ladies use?
Thanks,
Mrs.C

Nordstrom is the best place to buy makeup. I have always had wonderful and knowledgeable service whenever I buy from one of their counters. I stick with Estee Lauder for my makeup. They have a great foundation and it wears very light. and the ladies or men who work those counters really make sure you have the proper makeup for your skin tone .

I heard a lot of good stuff about that website. We have a store about 30 minutes away.

Estee Lauder...I never thought of trying their make up.
I tend to forget that these companies don't only make perfume. I'll take a look at their make up!
Thanks.

Prescriptives makes a great foundation...as does Chanel and MAC. They are all a little on the expensive side but worth it.

I know you said you want to get away from drugstore brands, but I just bought Almay's new Touchpad foundation..I LOVE it! It blends perfectly and feels like you aren't wearing makeup at all. Its a little strange at first because the makeup is in a sponge that you don't take out of the container...you just touch it with your fingertips...you can wear it really light or layer it for more coverage. Its great and only costs $8.00.

Philosophy is excellent. Hope in a jar moisturizer =

I also like the jove (?) girls body butter I bought there, very smooth and smells . As you can see, I use it mainly for bath/body stuff, haven't tried the makeup yet but I was searching for a good tinted moisturizer for summer. If you find any, let me know.



The closest store we have to us is an hour away. (Which is probably a good thing, lol.)

My favorite!

Bono's American Wife...I saw that new Almay stuff. I use their foundation right now(I think I'm just getting bored with it because I've used it for 3 years now). But that looks like a nice summer time make up.
That was going to be my next question...come summer time(I work at Costco)whatever make up I wear, I sweat it off by lunch. My skin is too many shades of pink and white to go without.

I forgot to mention this...
Does anyone here read Jane magazine? My sister just bought a new issue, and they mention the makeup U2 wears

I assume they meant the makeup they wear on tour.
It's from Neiman Marcus.
I never thought of Adam and Larry wearing make up, Bono yes, but not all of them.

I only wear cheap makeup, usually. I like all the stuff I use though.

Me too. Cheap makeup = more money for other things

I don't really wear make up...and if I do...it's usually cheap stuff.
Somehow those women behind the makeup counters in the higher end stores scare me...I always wondered if they actually try to sell you something that's specifically for you, or are they trying to push a product?
