Benefit Gimme Brow Dupe?!

 I may or may not have found a dupe for the Benefit's Gimme Brow eyebrow gel. Check out this Catrice Eyebrow Filler Perfecting and Shaping Gel.
 It is a "naturally tinted Eyebrow gel, suitable for all eyebrow colours. The fibres fill in small gaps - for dense and perfectly shaped eyebrows within seconds!". 

I would say it's suitable for all eyebrow colours except really dark ones. 
The tinted gel colours your eyebrows, making them look more defined and the fibres help fill them in and make them look three dimensional. After a few seconds it dries and sets, so it lasts throughout the whole day. This is a great alternative to the Benefit eyebrow gel and for only 2,95€ it doesn't break the bank.

Stranded On An Island

I just read a blogpost here, on what beauty products to bring to a deserted island and I wanted to share my own rendition with you.

Two things here go hand in hand and this would be sunscreen (Paula's Choice - Skin Balancing Ultra Sheer SPF 30) and a pair of sunglasses. Obviously, on a deserted island you want to stay protected from the sun. I would probably also bring sunscreen for my body (waterproof, SPF 50) and maybe a little sun hat. You can never be protected enough from the sun.

The next thing I would bring is a moisturiser for dry skin (Lavera - Moisturising Cream), because the salt water and the sun will dry out your skin, and the same goes for your hair, so a nice hair oil (Loreal - Oil Magique) would be essential, as well.

A concealer palette (Catrice - Allround Concealer) would be a nice luxury to have, but is definitely not an absolute must, in my opinion. Tea Tree Oil on the other hand is something I wouldn't want to miss, because you could get so much use out of this one product. Whether you have blemished skin, a dry scalp, an insect bite or a sore throat, this product is a miracle worker.

And last but not least, I would bring a nice little book to keep me company and also to keep me entertained. 

What do you think about my choices and what would you bring to a deserted island?
