I myself don't own many MAC products, but I do own the NARS Deep Throat and tried out the Rimmel Apricot Blush. Although the NARS is more pigmented, the Rimmel one shows up equally as pretty and won't grind a hole in your wallet!

As for the brands, I've always wanted to purchase Chanel beauty products but the price just breaks my heart and bank account. However, I do love Bourjois products since they have a great quality and cute packaging as well! The brand is a bit difficult to find in common drugstores but you can find the Bourjois products at Sephora.
