Island Beauty featuring Myth Buster Beauty

Were you wondering what happened to those Wednesday "Island Beauty" features? Me too:) Well the show is back on the road - here is this week's Island Beauty post!

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.

Jen, the beauty behind the Myth Buster Beauty beauty blog, is this week's Island Beauty. Here is her "Island Beauty Shopping List":

1. Herbaria's Jojoba Shampoo Bar. I borrowed this item from Bionic Beauty's survival list, how original of me! This shampoo bar is such a great beauty multi-tasker, and cleans your hair gently without over stripping.

2. Tweezers. For plucking my wild eyebrows, brazen chin hairs, and of course, any thorns or splinters from my attempts to make a fire. I love Tom Hanks.

3. DevaCare's One Condition. I am afraid without this rich hair conditioner my thick, curly hair would end up in a tangled mess very quickly.

4. Gingi's Citrus Sun Care. Provides both sun protection and rejuvenates the skin. Light, yummy orange scent and doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy.

5. Tarte's Smooth Operator SPF 20 Foundation. Getting my foundation and SPF too! I love how this product protects, adds moisture, nourishes, and provides super-natural coverage on my face.

6. Eyeliner. I could survive without mascara, but would find it hard to go without eyeliner. Urban Decay's 24/7 Glide-on Pencils are my favorite eye liners. However, I would opt for the Pencil Me In Eyeliners because they have a built-in pencil sharpener and have a fabulous color assortment.

7. Caudalie's Lip Conditioner. Soothes and repairs dry, chapped lips. This super lip balm contains grape-seed polyphenols (OPC), shea butter and castor oil, and has a light vanilla flavor.

Thanks Jen for sharing your list!
