BR Merilyn: Hands down for me the one product I am never going without ever again is Flash Lash. This year I bought Flash Lash (yes, bought it, wasn't even given it) and now I wouldn't be without it. My lashes have never looked so long. (Editor's note - this is true. I was staring at Merilyn's lashes one day and thought she'd bought a new amazing mascara. Nope. They were her lashes, untouched. Amazing. - BR Kellie)
BR Nat: I've been raving about the Eye of horus Goddess Mascara for three years. Since me and the Goddess went public in 2014 I can't remember buying another mascara for myself. Now yes, I confess, I have tried several mascaras over the years in the name of research, but the only one I use religiously, the only one I want to spend my money on, is this baby. Why do I love it? It will not budge with water, tears, rain, water-fights - your lashes will look as faboosh as they did when you first applied it. And yet it removes like a dream using a gentle oil cleanser and no scrubbing. It applies evenly, coats every lash and never, ever fails. Ever.
BR Kellie: Goodness Every Day Cream Cleanser. Was it my favourite last year? I think it may have been. It was my favourite again this year. It's my morning shower staple cleanser. I did try another when I couldn't find Goodness at my local supermarket and was in desperate need of a cleanser as I was all out, but it didn't work for me and it was passed onto a friend who loved it, meanwhile I hunted down Goodness Every Day Cream Cleanser at another supermarket and the love affair has continued. It's creamy. Gentle. Does the job. And the just-mowed-wild-parsley scent rocks my world.
BR Tabatha: Didn't even have to think twice about this one. I'm an LA Girl Pro-conceal concealer girl all the way. This concealer lightens and brightens without caking or creasing. And the price is oh so right. It's my makeup bag must.
BR Elaine: I thought spending thirty odd dollars on a makeup sponge was ridiculous. I mean, you can buy so much other makeup with $30 and a cheap sponge did the trick for applying foundation. Except then I was gifted a Beautyblender and it's ruined me. It makes my face look flawless, and I find the bouncing motion on my skin strangely soothing. Once I poo-pooed it, now I wouldn't be without it. Go figure.
