Beauty Survival: Castaway!

It’s that time of the year where you’ll probably be around alot of water and hell maybe you’ll be on the water….a cruise, a ship, some sort of boat perhaps?

A beauty survival awaits you!


Your best friend convinced you that going on a cruise would be thee best Summer vacay evers and she’s right! You’re having an amazing time on a gorgeous cruise ship in the middle of the ocean.



Storm! The ship is going down!

The captain alerts everyone that life boats are waiting to take you to the nearest island. He also informs you that you can take five cosmetic, makeup, or skincare items with you!

What do you take?

Mon list:

  • 6/8/10 10:14 Lorraine:

    -My Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara (the best drugstore mascara I’ve tried yet! Love it!)
    -Maybelline matte face powder
    -Revlon Natural Lip Tint, which comes with SPF thank God!
    -A big ol’ tub of cetaphil face wash! I can mix it with the sand to get a good exfoliating scrub :)
    -A bottle of sunscreen…..a really BIG bottle of sunscreen!


    • 6/8/10 10:42 the Muse:

      ha lorraine yes please on the SPF. 64oz or more!

    Must haves for my beauty survival at sea?

    -Mascara base/eyelash conditioner: Lancome Cils Booster XL
    -Mascara: always a fan of Prescriptive Lash Envy (although I suppose I should go waterproof?)
    -SPF (of course!)
    -Serum: Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum (must maintain my glow on the high seas)
    -Moisturizer: Caudalie Vinosource Riche (to stay moisturized and dewy soft despite the drying effects of sunshine & salt water)

    These would be my beauty essentials although I’m thinking I would be more focused on the snacks! 😉

    One of those REALLY BIG NYX sets. Preferably the ‘Soho Glam’ one.

    That pretty much covers everything. But I would like another lipgloss, a mascara, a face wash, and an SPF 30 moisturizer. I pretty much covered everything with that NYX set. I could survive. :)
