Lipsense - Audra's pick
If you know me, you know that I'm not that into makeup. I wear it, but not a lot of it. Lipstick is the last thing I think about during a busy day, so re-applying isn't even a possibility. BUT, a couple of months ago my Sis-in-law introduced me to this new product called Lipsense. They carry a ton of different colors and the best part of all, it seriously stays on all day! I was very skeptical at first, but I'm here to tell you, its true. I now put my lipstick on in the morning and by the end of the day, its still there!
Benefit Roller Lash - Laura's pick
I am not one that is super loyal to specific beauty brands. Usually, if it's on sale, I will give it a try. I have thankfully been given long eyelashes and I have tried all kinds of mascaras over the years. Two criteria that they must have is no clumping and no smudging. My mother-in-law bought me Benefit Roller Lash two years ago and I have been sold ever since. It lasts me at least 5 months, so I can justify it costing a little more than other mascaras. If you want extra length to your lashes, I recommend you give it a try!
Manuka Honey - Rebecca's pick
Go ahead and call me the hippie of the group...I totally own it! Because one of my children suffers from multiple chemical sensitivities, we use natural products for everything, skincare included! Manuka honey, which is honey harvested from New Zealand, is the leader of the pack when it comes to clarifying, soothing, and moisturizing the skin. It has a considerably higher level of enzymes and four times the nutritional content than regular raw honey and works as a potent antibacterial. Teenage acne is no match for manuka honey! I use it as a face wash and leave it on for 10 minutes as a moisturizing mask. It has also saved the day a time or two when used as a salve for cuts, staph infections, and wounds. It's a miracle worker!
Boomstick by Cindy Joseph - Tammy's pick
After olive oil and coconut oil, the BOOM stick is my favorite beauty product. I have one on my bathroom counter, one in my purse, and one in my car. It's an easy way to add a hint of color anytime, anywhere. The creator, a former make-up artist, encourages you to apply it wherever you naturally get color when you work out, like your cheeks, lips, and forehead. The color looks good on anyone and is truly fuss-free. The fact that it is created with all natural ingredients is a top selling point for me. Truly an all in one product.
Jane Iredale Makeup - Teryn's pick
My sister gave me a Jane Iredale makeup sample kit for Christmas one year. I wasn't quick to open it because I had plenty of my existing makeup left. Once I finally got around to using it, I almost immediately noticed a difference in my skin. I have always struggled with acne and ever since changing to Jane Iredale, acne has been a thing of the past!
