Whats your +1 beauty item?

Friday, April 02, 2010

I’ve always wondered what the perceived favorite item among women is.  It’s the age old question of; if you were stranded on a deserted island what would you bring if you had the choice of 1 beauty item?  So ladies, what would you choose, mascara, a gloss, powder?  What’s your must have +1 beauty item?

It's all about the skin! Can't live without my face moisturizer because great skin goes a long way.

If I was stranded on a deserted island I would bring the Hypershine gloss. Lips always tend to get dry, if they are moist your mouth stays moist.

I would have to have my lipgloss. I think(and have been told)that my lips are one of my best features so as long as I can have them looking good I will be ok.

Mascara! I usually only wear mascara and eyeliner, but I never leave the house without a coat of mascara. It makes me look more awake and really brightens my eyes!

Mascara is a must. Always, helps make the eyes brighter and I can live with shiny since you would sweat through that powder in minutes, and eat that gloss off in seconds.

Well being that the climate may be pretty drying I'd have to bring along some moisterizer to keep my skin hydrated. I wouldn't bring a lip color because I'm pretty sure I'll be on a beautiful island that is filled with lush plants and berries. I simply grab a berry and rub it across my lips as a stain which will give me a nice was of color.

My compact with spf 30 creme foundation. It's like a multipurpose tool. It has SPF 30 to protect my face from the sun, and I can use the suns reflection off the mirror to draw the attention of boats/airplanes that pass by.

Okay, so I have bad skin, but I don't think I would bring my concealer. (Surprise!) I would have to bring myself some chapstick. If I don't, I think I would die.

Mine would be an eye-liner. A dark colored plum one. My lashes are too thin for mascara to make a big difference, so I find the liner makes the most difference. I'll get my blush from that sun on the island!

I am going to go with my ELF lip tins. They go with me everywhere. I am a lipstick person but going anywhere outdoorsy (and indoors lately)it's definately going to be my lip tins because they can hold their own with some lip color, flavor and moisture.

Okay, this is the third comment I have written. This is my final answer.."It ain't ever gonna happen!" My husband is trying to stop me now from buying all of ELF's products for a holiday in the UK come July and August and "that ain't ever gonna happen!". He is already thinking of how he is going to have to pay extra just for luggage that is full of cosmetics from ELF that I am taking and he should be! "I ain't going ANYWHERE without my ELF makeup". Not to the UK, not to an island that is deserted, not ANYWHERE! And so my answer to ELf and my husband is "It ain't ever gonna happen"!

I would have to say some sort of chapstick. Whether it be a balm, stick, or hydrating gloss, I have to have some sort of moisture for my lips! Even when I go out with out a purse, i keep a tube in my pocket.

If I was stranded on an island? Would water count? If not, then sunscreen. I definitely would like like to somehow get saved and then find out later I have skin cancer. lol But for the number one "beauty beauty (ie. cosmetic)" item on a day to day basis, it would be eyebrow pencil. I would choose brow gel too, but since its only one ... :D

If moisterizer counts as a beauty item, that would definitely be on the top of my list! Otherwise, eyeliner is my must-have item. I can't go anywhere without it!

Undereye concealer. My skin is pretty good, even for a 45 year old woman. But I've always had dark circles under my eyes - even as a little kid. So definitely concealer!
