About This Quiz

"Maybe she's born with it. Maybe it's Maybelline!" Or is it L'Oreal? Rather than a drugstore brand, maybe its Anastasia Beverly Hills or a high-end brand like Dior. With all the makeup brands in the world, there are tons of popular products in the drugstore, Sephora, and online. Can you recognize the brand from their most popular beauty products?

The makeup world has definitely evolved into one of the most booming industries. A few decades ago, you might've seen women simply focusing on their foundation, powder, and lipstick. As the years went on, their makeup kit would include eyebrow pencils and blush. Now, if you were to look into a woman's makeup drawer, you'd probably find bronzer, highlighter, and contour powders.

While there are countless of brands putting out tons of products, there are some products that are well-known above the rest. MAC and Urban Decay are known for their setting sprays while Anastasia Beverly Hills is known for her eyeshadow palettes. Maybelline is known for their matte foundation while Laura Mercier is leading the industry with her setting powder.

There are hundreds of makeup brands and thousands of products. Can you match the beauty product to the brand? Is the "True Match" foundation a product of NYX or Smashbox? Or neither?

Are you a beauty expert? Have you spent hours shopping at MAC, Sephora, and Ulta? If you love makeup, this is the quiz for you? Let's find out if you're ready to be a makeup guru!
