Island Beauty featuring Makeup Masala

While watching "Lost" online a few weeks ago, my thoughts drifted to beauty products. Let's say all of my basic needs ( food, water, shelter) are covered. What beauty products would I bring with me to a deserted island? What if I could only bring seven things? I would get an unlimited supply of these seven items, but I could only bring seven beauty items. What would I pick?

I posed this question to some of my favorite beauty bloggers and the answers were informative, thought provoking and funny! "Island Beauty" will be a Wednesday staple here on for the next few months starting today:)

Toma, the beauty behind the Makeup Masala beauty blog, is first up. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

1. Aussie Aussome Volume Texturizing Gel
2. Sunsilk Hold Me Forever Hairspray
3. Avon Glazewear (lipgloss) in "Teddy Bear"
4. Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy body wash in "Orange Ginger"
5. Herbal Essences "Hello Hydration" conditioner
6. Avon Glimmersticks eyeliner in "Blackest Black"
7. Great Lash mascara in "Very Black"

Thanks Toma for sharing your list!

  1. That's kinda hard to answer. It's cool reading about others' fav products though. It makes me want to try out their must-haves!

  2. Hi,

    Very nice beauty blog you have here. Found your blog after searching information for makeup reviews. Thanks for the great information!

    My name is Irene and I'm involved in an online beauty community website called I was hoping that you would have a minute to check out the site and perhaps if you liked what you saw... write about it on your blog?

    I may be going out on a limb by asking you for promotional help through your blog, but I hope you find to be as news worthy/helpful as I perceive it to be. There's still a lot of work to be done with it, but I'm working on it. It's hard to compete when you're a small fish in a huge sea with huge sites like MUA and the likes, but I do what I can :) My favorite part of the site is the 'critic's corner' where members can review or read up on various product reviews for makeup and skincare. Then there's always the forum, the photo gallery, the ask a makeup artist page, etc.

    Thanks for your time :)
