Products I’m loving – July 2010

Posted by Lipglossiping On July - 30 - 2010

~ Shampoo: Pantene Pro-V’s new Aqua Light Shampoo FOR THE WIN!  I’m so impressed at a product that simply does what it claims to do.
~ Conditioner: Pantene Pro-V’s new Aqua Light Conditioner – I know, I’m sounding like a broken record… sorry!
~ Styling products: OSiS Mess Up Matt Gum is giving my hair some sweet texture atm without making it look like it’s got a ton of product in it
~ Shower Gel: TAO Rituals T’ai Chi Shower Foam… smells good, and it’s bubbly!
~ Night Cream: PerriconeMD Cold Plasma has been working nicely for me as a night cream during this hot, sticky month.  It’s light and moisturising… but I wouldn’t pay £120 for it… review coming soon!
~ Day Cream: Ponds Light Day Cream
~ Cleanser: NUDE Cleansing Oil followed up with Priori Advanced AHA – Gentle Facial Cleanser
~ Exfoliator: Elemis Tri-Enzyme Resurfacing Gel Mask
~ Primer: Shu Uemuera UV Underbase SPF 30
~ Foundation brush: Pout Airbrush
~ Concealer: MUFE HD Concealer
~ Powder: MAC MSF Natural in Medium
~ Blusher: Bobbi Brown Illuminating Bronzer in Maui
~ Highlighter: None, it’s been too hot and I’ve been too glowy for that malarky!
~ Eyeshadow base: UDPP (as always)
~ Eyeshadows: Shu Uemura IR Beige 800 allover the lid for a brighter, more awake look!
~ Eyeliner: Sleek Kajal in Black
~ Mascara: Boots 17 Wild Curls
~ Lipstick: Guerlain Rouge G in Gabrielle
~ Lipgloss: None


Have you noticed any stand outs this month?

    will you please please do a review on the rouge g lipsticks, i would love to see the ones that you feel suit you because i’ve a similar skintone to you!

    I’ve been wearing MUFE face and body, I don’t know what i like about it but i just do love it!

    • sure!

      I love MUFE F&B! It’s really light but buildable isn’t it? I always put 2/3 thin coats of it around my nose/cheeks… but can leave the rest of my face with just the one. Really versatile foundation!

  3. Sinead says:

    Loved this post :)
    I am so eager to try the NUDE cleansing oil!
    Out of curiosity hun, which foundation are you using at the minute? I need myself a new one as my sheer glow is running out!

    • Hi Sinead!

      It’s a nice oil, quite strong smelling… but it feels lovely to work into the skin.

      I’m just alternating between my Bourjois Healthy Mix and Max Factor second skin at the moment. Still using mineral foundation to set the lot too

    I hope you don’t mind terribly if I unashamedly borrow this set up do you? I will link you back! xx

    I’m really enjoying Pantene’s Aqua Light too! I’ve been waiting for the ‘bad’ but there doesn’t seem to be any.
    I hardly ever condition my roots because my hair gets too weighed down (aka flat :( !) but the Aqua Light is great and makes my hair so soft!

  6. Love my Mac 150 brush!, great brush and also Mineralize Skinfinish in Petticoat and ByCandlelight!

  7. Jade says:

    Ooh really want to give the mufe hd concealer a go :)

  8. Thanks to your helpful post about Pantene’s new shampoo line, Aqualight, I’m LOVING it too! 😀

  9. I bought some Pantene Aqua Light stuff and I’m sort of impressed but not really…. It made my hair nice and light but also made it fluffy, flywaway and frizzy :( I used the shampoo and conditioner but no joy. I had to go out and buy some serum to tame my barnet! xx
