We Asked Team MM What's The One Beauty Product They Wish They Had If They Were Stranded On An Island

Sakshi Rawte

Being someone who never travels without her truckload of beauty products, if you asked me this question, it’d probably take me days or even weeks to come up with an answer. The life of a skincare and makeup aficionado isn’t easy— I have no storage space for the newest brow set, eyeshadow palette and face masks I’ve managed to snag, all thanks to multiple year-end sales. I can’t go a day without my moisturiser, sunscreen, mascara, cheek tint and kohl— so I was naturally curious to know if my colleagues were just like me or did they have their priorities sorted?

Finally, I decided to ask Team MissMalini a million-dollar question, “What is the ONE beauty product you’d carry with you to an island?” The one product they just can’t live without? The one product that’s going to be their bestie when they’re stranded on an island in the middle of nowhere? Much to my relief, some of my colleagues were exactly like me— they took ages to answer this question. While some of them answered this in a jiffy! Imagine being so sure of something? Could never be me.

So, here’s what Team MM wished they had if they got stuck on an island—

What’s your pick?

Laneige, Lip Sleeping Mask

Why is it your pick over everything else?

I love this product over everything because it hydrates and soothes my lips all through the year. Especially in the winters when they tend to get chapped and dry! So naturally, if I happen to be stranded on an island this tiny tub of goodness has got to be with me.

What’s your pick?

The Body Shop, Strawberry Lip Balm

Why is it your pick over everything else?

Stranded on an island, I think the tanning and the water will take care of my face and hair but I just cannot have chapped lips! Just imagine the salty water burning my cracked lips every time I take a dip in the ocean, no way José! This lip balm is so hydrating on the lips and instantly makes them softer. What’s even better is the subtle reddish tint it has!

What’s your pick?

Clarins, Broad Spectrum SPF 30 Sunscreen - amazon.com

Why is it your pick over everything else?

Tanning by the pool in the Hamptons or taking a public bus to Goa, a sunscreen is must-have. So, if I’m going to be stranded on an island I’m just going to have one BFF, that’s gotta be sunscreen. I love this one from Clarins because it’s so lightweight and immediately sinks into your skin.

What’s your pick?

Flower Beauty, Blush Bomb Colour Drops

Why is it your pick over everything else?

It’s no secret that blushes are everywhere right now, and I’ve been using one almost every day. I love how pigmented and easily blendable this particular blush is! It’s also extremely versatile. I use it on my cheeks, lips and my eyes too. If I was stuck on an island, I’d definitely wanna look cute 24/7.

What’s your pick?

MAC Cosmetics, Pro Longwear Concealer

Why is it your pick over everything else you own?

I mean, if I had the option, the one thing I’d carry to an island would be insect repellent, duh! However, the one beauty product I’d need would be my trusted concealer to cover up all of the silly mistakes I make on the island. MAC Cosmetics’ Pro Longwear Concealer does that and so much more without creasing or drying out your under-eyes.

What’s your pick?

MAC Cosmetics, Prep + Prime Fix+ Setting Spray

Why is it your pick over everything else you own?

It’s the one thing that has been a constant in my life even more than relationships have. I don’t use makeup on a daily basis but this product is what I can’t imagine stepping out without. It always gives a refreshing radiance to my lazy face. Just one spritz every couple of hours can really do wonders!

What’s your pick?

Etude House, Dear Darling Tint

Why is it your pick over everything else you own?

Who doesn’t love a good tint? This particular one has such a soft yet pigmented texture. I always prefer having a natural flush on my cheeks, and this tint is absolutely perfect for that. On days where I’m feeling lazy, I dab it over my lips and eyes too and I’m ready to take on the day.
