Survival Beauty

I think, as a woman, I’ve asked myself the question, “What items would I need if I were stranded on a deserted island?”, a million times!

You must ask yourself this too or have had a friend ask you what three or four items would you ABSOLUTELY need if you could have nothing else with you!

Well..I’d answer…I need a stunning man (or two) to climb trees for me and gather coconuts, and fish, and do all that manly stuff because I’m a delicate ladeeee!

And I’d also need a few beauty items. Sadly I’m unable to give you a list of three or four items I absolutely have to have because really I’d be lying if I said the list was that bloody short! Knowing me I’d need a u-haul truck full of cosmetics, skincare, and general girlish rubbish to keep me content on a deserted tropical island! I don’t give one flying leap it’s paradise! I need cosmetics damnit and I need them now!

If I’m without I might as well jump into the ocean and perish!

But have no fear I don’t have to go through such drastic measures as that!

Victoria Jackson is here to save the day!

If the ship was sinking and the rescue boats were waiting to whisk me to the deserted island in wait of help I’d grab up my Victoria Jackson Survival Kit and call it a day!

YAY I can be fabulous and stranded!

The Survival Kit is by far the coolest little gadget the Muse has set eyes on. The Muse likes nifty gadgets it must be the geek in her!

Flip up the top and an eye pencil, lip pencil, and mascara await you!

Split the kit open and two blushes and a mirror are on one side.

Flip over the blush tray and another mirror (in case you didn’t feel fabulous looking at yourself in the first one!) and 5 lipcreams are at the ready to make you gorgeous!

Slide the tray out on the side and 2 trays of 5 shimmering shadows (10 in total) are here to make your eyelids sparkle with color!

Slip the tray out on the opposite side and a blush brush, shadow brush, and lip brush are enclosed to put your face on!

How freaking cool is this?

Thanks Victoria! We beauty junkies needed this! Might the Muse add that this is the perfect little treat to take with you on trips! With all the rigid airline rules in place I get very nervous packing my precious cosmetic items for fear they’ll be broken or taken away! Pack this up and I’d say you’re good to go and look elegant at the same time!


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Hey, just curious, how much is the VJ Survival Kit and where did you buy it? I saw an auction on Ebay that claims the retail price is $129.99 but that just sounds outrageous. I think the Lola ones were around $40.

  • A-Mused

    WHAT????????????????????????????? I’m totally selling it right now!


    I paid $50 bucks for it at this little store in a mall called the Cinderella Cosmetic Shop!

    $129.99???????????????????????????????? Holy cow!

    Got a link for that?

    Hi there! I just stumbled upon your YouTube videos and I think I’ll be spending A LOT of time on your blog from now on!

    Question about this kit: are the shadows sufficiently pigmented? And the lip creams, are they heavy color?
    *crosses fingers that they are*

  • the Muse

    hi there melissa! Thank you so much for finding me here after viewing my silly youTube videos 🙂

    They are pretty pigmented and the colors of the lippies can be built up for more intensity 🙂

    If you like a nice natural, neutral look you’ll like this little kit!

    Hope this helps 😉

    Many thanks for stopping by! Hope to talk to you again soon!

    I like the idea but what stops me from buying this is the colour range, nothing that I like
