What would you take on a desert island??

I love foundation! Even without adding anything else to my face, if I just add a small coat of foundation I feel better. This week’s contest is about your fave piece of makeup. The kind folks over at E.L.F. are going to be sponsoring this week’s contest and again it’s to win FREE makeup!! All you’ve got to do to win $20 worth of free makeup is answer this question in the comment section:-

  1. I would totally bring mascara. God’s gift to women 🙂

  2. I would have to take some sort of chapstick or lip balm. Only cuz my lips are already dry all the time, if I were to go to a island, they would be even more dry and chapped!! EWWW!! 🙂 Thanks for the contest, I LOVE elf products, I bought a LOT a couple of months ago. I love their compact that you can put up to four different things in. Cost 5! NOT bad!!

  3. I would need to bring foundation w/ sunscreen…lol…no need for more freckles!

  4. I would need my foundation with sunscreen – because who needs more freckles!

  5. It would be a toss up between my moisturizer/sunblock and my lip balm. 🙂

    Fun, thanks for the chance to win. I’m hthaden at gmail dot com.

  6. Bailey's Mom says:

    I would love to win this prize. I have never won anything so we will have to see how it goes. How exciting it would be to win this giveaway!! My email is madilynalexis@gmail.com

  7. I would bring my eyelash curler

  8. I’d have to have Lipstick! Thanks so much for offering such a great giveaway!


  9. ooh, I am tempted to agree with Candice, she is very smart in thinking that an island would make your lips even more dry! But I have to go with my holy grail foundation, Neutrogena Healthy Skin Enhancer. It’s the perfect 3-in-1 – light coverage, light moisturization, and a decent SPF. I won’t leave the house without it on!

  10. Days like These! says:

    i would bring cocoa butter for my lips!!!

  11. DoubleVentiLatte says:

    I think I would bring a tinted SPF moisturizer. I could have smooth pretty skin that would not burn!

  12. Its a hard toss up between lip gloss and mascara since I can’t go a day without either! I guess I’d go with lip gloss since I love having soft and shiny lips!

  13. I would definitely have to bring my mineral foundation with spf! If I could bring 2 things, then my mascara would have to come along too =). Thank you for the great contest! I’ve been wanting to try E.L.F. products.

    Bonnie =)

  14. I would bring my SPF 15 lip gloss. There is nothing worse than sunburned, dry lips. Thanks for the giveaway!

  15. A good quality moisturizer containing sunblock, definitely.

  16. A Good Lotion with sunblock would be my first pick.

  17. I’m a plain Jane and actually enjoy not wearing make up in the summer (that’s assuming the weather would be hot and sunny-he he). I would bring my Chap Stick cherry flavor!

  18. I would bring my chap stick! It’s my one essential in summer and winter.

  19. Stranded on a desert island? Eyeliner…I just have to have it. Thanks for the giveaways!

  20. I have really dry skin, I couldn’t live without moisturizer!

    Great contest!


  21. I would need mascara! Can’t live without it!

  22. What do I buy at Aldi? Everything! (Except maybe meat, which I only buy from the “loss leader” adds at other stores)
    All my snacks, cereal, milk, eggs, the french vanilla cream that I can’t do without–everything. I make fabulous burritos with only Aldi ingredients, my popular egg dish (a Pampered Chef recipe) all from Aldi. My shampoo (except for FAR deals at CVS of Walgreens)soap, laundry detergent, dog treats, you name it.

    Even Aldi’s prices have gone up recently, so I’m considering making a spread sheet of prices on the items I buy regularly so that when the sale ads come out in the paper, I’ll know right away if sale prices at other stores are “Cheaper than Aldi”. Maybe I’ll name the spreadsheet “Is it Cheaper than Aldi”.

    I used to laugh at people who shopped their, and now my Dutch conscience gives me a hard time about shopping anywhere else.

  23. I would bring loose powder. I feel better when I cover my freckles.

  24. Carmex. Can’t live without it!


  25. Most definitely lip gloss! I hate it when my lips are dry…so this would be a must on a desert island 🙂

    Great giveaway!

  26. Lip gloss. Could NOT live without that!!

  27. Cline Family says:

    would possibly only live 2 hours without lip gloss, so i would have to take the largest tube known to man. or woman, as the case may be. 🙂

  28. piece of me says:

    I would definitely have to have my chap stick.
    livlifelov at yahoo dot com

  29. I would definitely bring foundation. I hate my skin au naturale…LOL

  30. lipstick for sure!

  31. one frugal lady says:

    I would have to say concealer! I have horrid dark circles under my eyes, some that would probably scare away the wild animals on that desert island!

  32. I’m not a huge makeup person, but i would have to agree with the lip balm people!!Esp. out on an island in the son!! (maybe tinted a bit)

  33. I can’t live without my Carmex. Not sure if it counts as makeup but that’s what I would bring FOR SURE!

  42. I would totally take my moisturizer–can’t go a day w/o it!!
    dar dot sieb at gmail dot com

  43. I have a fabulous tint/moisturizer/sunscreen mixture from a friend who sells makeup. It would be the most practical item to (hopefully) keep me from LOOKING like I’ve been on a desert island!

  44. anything with sunscreen in it. I am a redhead with fair skin and I burn at the drop of a hat.

  45. Miss Mommy says:

    would have to have my face powder…I look scary without it!!LOL

    Thanks for the chance!

  46. Is blistex considered makeup? I have super dry lips so it’s have to be my blistex!

  47. I would bring coverup, so it doesnt look like I’m always tired.

  48. cheapsk8mom says:

    mascara for sure. if i was stuck on an island, that’d mean I would have a tan goin’ on… (my freckles would grow together)

    cheapsk8mom at att dot net

  49. Briana Almengor says:

    I would take eye liner. I just thought the other day that I understand why women get it tatooed onto their eyelids. Don’t know if I’d ever be brave enough to do it, but I get it now.

  50. I usually always have something on my eyes..BUT if i was on an island..I’d probably need some lip protection! So maybe tinted chap stick? LOL! Thanks for the chance!

  62. i think i’d choose eyeliner so my eyes are sleepy

  63. Pinching Pennies in Bedford, Pa says:

    At first I thought mascara… but then if I had no mirror, it wouldn’t matter what I looked like and no one else would be there to see me. I would Definitely have to have my chap-et lip balm! I am a lip balm addict.

  64. I would bring eyeliner! 🙂


  65. With my dark undereye circles, it would definitely be concealer!

  74. No doubt about it-lipstick. I don’t go to the mailbox w/o it

  76. Michelle B says:

    Definitely mascara. There is nothing more captivating than thick, luscious and long lashes. theloveofisis at gmail dot com

  77. Lip balm. Because if I’m stranded, no one is seeing if I have blotchy skin or black eyelashes, but in the sun, I’ll get chapped lips, and that will bother me. So, I have to have my lip balm. tinted would be nice, of course.

  78. Ooh, I LOVE E.L.F. makeup! Their stuff is so good and very affordable.

    I would take bronzer with me on a deserted island, because I love contouring my cheekbones, and it can add shine and glow to any face!

    Thanks so much.

  92. thuytranN! says:
