Announcing our Shine Beauty Gurus!

What a week!

Our Shine Beauty Panel call for entries brought out 50 Shine users who revealed the one beauty product they couldn't without.

Lipstick was the overwhelming product of choice with mascara coming in a strong second. We found your choice for best flat iron and inventive new ways to use old, favorite products. Have you tried cherry Chapstick on your split ends?

Discussion was heavy when it came to narrowing down the 50 great entries. In the end, the final 20 were chosen on their grasp of beauty products, beauty tips and language, and their ability to blog in an accessible, natural way.

Here are our Shine Beauty Gurus. Phenomenal job!
