Island Beauty featuring Clumps of Mascara

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.

Brittany, the beauty behind the Clumps of Mascara beauty blog, is this week's Island Beauty. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

1. Olive oil, great for the skin, hair, lips and sautée-ing some coconuts. HA!
2. Tea tree oil. Good for the scalp and pimples.
3. Castille soap. Good for a shampoo, face cleanser and make-up remover (can you tell I love multi-uses products?)
4. Clinique's UV Response Face SPF 50. Definitely gonna need skin protection.
5. Banana Boat Ultra Defense SPF 80. How 'bout all over protection?
6. DentaBurst. I'm sorry but fresh breath is SO a must.
7. Bobbi Brown Shimmerbrick in Bronze. A quick swipe on the lids and cheeks and I'm ready for a luau! Hopefully I'm stranded with some other beauty obsessed folx and I could just borrow some of their items. Heheheeee.

Thanks Brittany for sharing your list!
