Too Faced - primer and lipstick. They're so creamy and go on smoothly.
MUFE - ANYTHING from the HD line and their Aqua Eyes pencils. I <3 the HD powder.
Nars - foundation. This is the ONLY brand I've found that has a color that's light enough for me

MUFE - as said before ANYTHING but the really best are foundations and waterproof eye/lip liners amazing!
NARS - Blush and lipgloss
Dior - mascara and lipstick

On the sephora's page lot of people say BE for foundation... I don't think its THAT good... (I have it though hahaha but won't repurchase)
