Products you stand behind
The Kitchen Aid thread got me thinking... what are some products/brands than you like to "stick with" ? Stuff that you know, no matter what you get, it's going to be great, and the stuff that you buy from them regularly works every time. It can be anything, here's what I came up with:

Birkenstock
Bare Escentuals
Kitchen Aid
MMMMalabrigo
Proactive
OPI (nailpolish)


Anyway, that's just off the top of my head, not necessarily a comphrensive list. What about you?

Hmmm...Godiva is the first thing I thought of (course, I haven't had chocolate since the beginning of Lent).

Clinique makeup (hardly ever wear the stuff, so not sure why I care)
Love my Dansko shoes
Clarks shoes
Adidas running shoes
Food : Heinz ketchup, quacker oats, Miracle Whip, Tropicana OJ, Lipton ice tea, Jiff Peanut Butter, Cracker Barrell cheese, Del Monte canned veggies just to name a few... I care more about the brand of food I and the dogs get than my clothes.
Most other brands have hybridized (I made up a word) themselves to the point that I cannot trust everything they make. Kitchen Aid does great stand mixers, but all their other gadgets are not as trustworthy (IMHO) same thing with John Deere, they make a kickbutt farm tractor but then sell their name to be used on smaller lawn tractors at Lowe's that are not nearly as trustworthy.

I must be the only person in the world that has tried Bare Escentuals and didn't like it. I liked the coverage, but I didn't like the little shiny bits in it. I think its called titanium oxide or something like that.
Anyway, Amazing Cosmetics mineral foundation is more matte.
