My fave products are the Graftobian HD creme Foundations, they give such a flawless finish and Kryolan Lip palette, beautiful, high pigmented colours.  Both you can bet from Camera Ready Cosmetics. My Fave place to shop! :-)

I haven't been here in awhile... This was so nice to see...Thank you so much for your support.

I don't have a favorite product really but the one I use the most is my graftobian dual finish foundation palette...  I use it on every single job...as a powder, as eye shadow, contour... you name it.... for mens grooming it's often the only thing I ever use in my kit.

My favourite products that I use all the time are my MUFE flash pallette, HD foundations & All Mat Primer, La Maquillage neutral powder (sets without flattening the skin), Ben Nye Fireworks wheel & creme blush wheel, Kryolan Dermacolor camoflage mini-palettes (covers really well and blends out really lightly if you want it to, and so kit-friendly!) and MAC Strobe Cream smile

Lauren already mentioned all the good ones!

My favorites are:

Kryolan Dermacolor mini palettes
Ben Nye fireworks and blush wheels
OCC Lip Tars (finally got a few, Santa came early after stopping by CRC and I *love* this product, it's genius)
Maybelline Color Tattoo cream shadows (they make an excellent base for layering powder colors over)
Maybelline Extra Intense liquid pencil eyeliners
Smashbox Artifical Light luminizing lotions (I have 'glow' and 'diffuse' and usually mix them with primer before applying foundation)
Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On lip pencil in 'Ozone' (really helps keep colors from bleeding and helps keep your coloring inside the lines LOL)
Ben Nye Neutral Set and all their face powders
Urban Decay Afterglow Glide-On cheek tint

Gonna have to second this.

I also really like my OCC lip tars, not only the quality of the product, but the fact that I can mix them to achieve any lip colour I need and easily adjust colours to work with skin tones.

LORAC Pro Eyeshadow Palette.  For anything neutral, it's the only thing I need.  It's light and the quality of the shadows is ridiculous.

Inglot Gel Liner.  Super pigmented black, cheap, doesn't smudge and lasts forever. 

Urban Decay Deslick in a Tube. Its such a good mattifying product.

Graftobian Foundations. Already been said. (:

La Femme blushes.  So cheap, so pigmented, and they come in so many colors.
