Covergirl IMO. Nothing I've tried works except the lip perfection lipsticks and the tinted moisturizer...

covergirl for sure. they test on animals and make horrible quality products. i feel like essie is hit and miss as well. if you like sheer pinks, then great. but i find almost all of their polishes to be streaky and not worth the high price.

There's good and bad in every brand but I'm not a big fan of the L'Oreal or Rimmel products I've tried

This is one of those topics that's hard to narrow down since beauty products don't work out the same way for everyone. A lot of people go bananas over e.l.f., but I've tried a ton of their stuff hoping that it would be great since it's so cheap and gets a lot of rave reviews and literally NOTHING from that brand has remotely impressed me. CoverGirl and NYC don't work for me either. Smashbox eye shadows are probably the worst for me and their lip products are pretty run of the mill, I would never pay full price for anything from that line.

I agree Josette...I really don't like many things from elf.

@Josette S. I have had the same experience with smash box but i have been very fortunate with elf only finding one miss with all my elf purchases.

@ Kate C. I too am not a big fan of loreal, every hip product I have tried by them has been a disappointment. the only thing by them I have enjoyed is their color riche lipstick.. As for rimmel I have a growing collection of their products because I can't resist the adorable packaging. I have not found anything by them that impressed me though until I tried the Glam'Eyes HD. The eyeshadow pallets are extremely high quality soft smooth and bold. well worth the 5 dollars I spent on mine.

covergirl. not only is the packaging bad because it breaks and is ugly the makeup itself is bad quality and wears off fast. plus, the foundations are terrible. i bought a "ivory" one for a lady gaga costume and it was waaaay to dark for the ivory color. it was almost honey with orange undertone.. uhg!!!

I have a lot of wins with maybelline, virtually all my maybelline products have been wonderful. My favorites are maybelline eyestudio which has wonderfully soft rich pigments.

I am impressed with Covergirl lipstick, i have 3 colors that i love.Kiss which is a lovely golden coral, divine which is a plastic barbie nicki minaj purple, and embrace which is a rich magenta shimmer.

Maybelline has been my favorite drugstore brand this year.

Hard Candy has probably been my favorite drug store brand, followed by essence

I hate NYC. Their eyeliners are terrible, and always make my eyes sore. The only product i've tried and found half way decent was their liquid liner. Also I'm not a fan of covergirl, I really only like Lash Blast.

I absolutely love Maybelline, Hard Candy, and Revlon as far as drugstore brands go. Also Prestige and L.A Splash.

I don't like Rimmel London or Almay there's a few products from CG that I love but some are a miss...

I agree with NYC - except their translucent pressed powder. It reminded me of MAC's blot powder.

covergirl, their foundations always go pink on me not even like a nice pink either.. like a salmon pink and it gives me one of those mask line things. And L'oreal, there are very few things that have ever given me an allergic reaction, and their foundation does, that has never happened before. My best friend also had the same reaction with l'oreal.

Covergirl, Maybeline, Loreal, Rimmel, NYC, and The Color Workshop. I don't like Covergirl's products, they aren't new, and poorly packaged. Other drugstore brands are more on top of things. Maybeline has never worked for anyone I know, and has gimmicky products. Loreal is the biggest animal test offender and has products that smell horrible, and are often gimmicky. Rimmel has 3 foundation shades, and all formula's are orange based and cakey. NYC, you get what you paid for, but Wet N' Wild is far superior. The Color Workshop has no pigmentation. Not worth the money.

I think it's really weird that a lot of people don't like Smashbox, it was one of the first makeup lines I've ever used and I still love it. When I used to buy Covergirl, I never found anything that I really liked. & I find that Gosh has pretty bad pigmentation in their quads.

By the way, Covergirl does NOT test on animals. Pretty much ALL make up companies tested on animals back on the day, but most of them do not any longer. Ellen Degeneres is a Covergirl and she is vegan. She would not represent a company that tested on animals.

If you really are concerned about animal cruelty in makeup you can refer to peta's lists of companies that do and do not test on animals or mymakeupmirror.com. The difference between the two websites being the woman who runs my make up mirror does the research herself while peta only adds companies to their list who volunteer/ask/etc. Whether or not you agree with them is fine but I've found their lists to be reliable and accurate and cover not just make up but other personal care items. You don't have to browse through lists on online to shop for cruelty free products. You simply can keep an eye out for the bunny logo. It is an easy and quick way to identify cruelty free products. Products that carry the bunny label do not "conduct or commission any animal tests on ingredients, formulations, or finished products and that they pledge not to do so in the future." Just because a product doesn't have the bunny logo doesn't mean the company does test on animals it means they haven't joined peta's list. I hope this helps anyone looking for a way to choose animal friendly products.
