The Products You Need To Buy This Weekend Picked By Bloggers And Our Beauty Team 27/07/2012

GALLERY >> Velvotan Face Mitt

"I just LOVE [a href="http://www.feelunique.com/p/Velvotan-The-Self-Tan-Applicator-Mitt" target="_blank">Velvotan Face Mitt[/a], it's such a clever idea yet so simple.  The traditional tanning mitt has been shrunk for super precise application for your face so that every area can be covered correctly.  Applying your fake tan with a mitt is essential for a streak free flawless finish so I don’t know why a miniature version hasn’t been launched before."

Topshop Secret Admirer Lipstick

"Secret Admirer is a lovely soft pink lipstick with muted nude tones and a beautiful, smooth consistency. Not too matte and not overly glossy, it leaves the lips with a subtle sheen."

Philip B Oud Royal Perfect Finishing Shaping Fibre

"To get a bit of volume in my hair this week I’ve reached for Philip B Oud Royal Perfect Finishing Shaping Fibre. I just rub a dollup in between my hands, into the roots of damp hair, followed by blowdrying my hair upside down for extra volume at the roots. It doesn’t make my hair feel greasy or sticky and leaves my hair smelling incredible for days whilst adding that extra oomph I need! "

MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase

"One of my favourite primers, [a href="http://www.mememecosmetics.co.uk/seventh-heaven-moisturising-facebase" target="_blank">MeMeMe Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase[/a] moisturises and preps the skin to give a smooth and lasting finish to your foundation, and it smells divinely of grapefruit.  Make-up holds up all day too, a must in any make-up lover's kit."

Benefit CORALista

"One of my favourite blushers is [a href="http://www.narscosmetics.co.uk/color/cheeks/blush/blush/orgasm" target="_blank">NARS Orgasm[/a] and I’m constantly on the lookout for a blusher that can challenge it and when [a href="http://www.benefitcosmetics.com/product/view/coralista" target="_blank">CORALista[/a] landed on my desk this week my search seems like it might finally be over.  Just the right parts of shimmering coral and pink, it highlights as well as perking up skin in a way no other blusher can.  Guaranteed comment curator. "

Dr Lipp's Nipple Cream

"Whoever discovered that [a href="http://www.drlipp.com/" target="_blank">Dr Lipp's original nipple cream[/a] was also a perfect hydrating treatment for lips was both a little strange and an absolute genius. Dr Lipp's original balm is 100% natural and made from the oils and waxes sheep naturally produce to protect their fleece. They're scientifically known to be the most similar to our own human skin oils and for centuries have helped to protect and soften our skin - so the science is telling me it's ok to use this on my pout!"

Timotei Pure Dry Shampoo

"Remember those iconic waterfall Timotei ads?  Well you’ll be pleased to know that[a href="http://timotei.com/index.html" target="_blank"> Timotei [/a]is back and it’s had a make over.  Apart from their no nasties policy and new, modern packaging (don’t worry though the white and green colours remain) Timotei has been brought into the modern day with the addition of their Pure Dry Shampoo.  Not only is it light and effective, it smells clean and fresh like you’ve just been in that Nordic waterfall!"

Apivita Sun Cream


"Since the sun has finally come out I've needed a great suncream, and I've been loving the amazing smell and the surprising tanning ability from this beautifully packaged SPF30 from Greek brand [a href="http://www.apivita.com/" target="_blank">Apivita[/a]."

Nars Sheer Lipstick in Cruising

"This week I am absolutely loving [a href="http://www.narscosmetics.co.uk/color/lips/lipstick/sheer-lipstick/cruising" target="_blank">Nars Sheer Lipstick in Cruising[/a]. It’s perfect, it’s the perfect shade, nude but not concealer lips, pink, but still beige enough to not just be a pink lipstick. I’m living in this shade right now and can’t see that ending any time soon!"

Chantecaille Just Skin

"With the weather (finally) warming up I've been opting for a light coverage tinted moisturiser. The [a href="http://www.chantecaille.com/product_makeup_detail.cfm?cat=4&pid=120" target="_blank">Chantecaille Just Skin[/a] leaves a natural dewy-finish, and gives the perfect amount of beachy glow to my face without having to wade through the over-crowded sands."

Stila stay all day foundation, concealer & brush kit

"If you could choose one make up product for your make up bag, it would be this.  The [a href="http://www.stilacosmetics.com/" target="_blank">Stila[/a] Stay All Day kit covers all bases (giddit) and comes with a miniature foundation brush for perfect application.   What more do you want form a product?-genius!"

Herbal Essences 'Tousle Me Softly'



"My product pick of the week is [a href="http://herbalessences.com/en-UK/collection-page.aspx?id=4244" target="_blank">Herbal Essences 'Tousle Me Softly'[/a]. It's the perfect product to put in your hair after curling it. It creates bounce to you hair, without leaving it sticky (like a lot of hair products) and really softens your look too. It also smells amazing."

Sherin from [a href="http://www.thehifashionsite.com/" target="_blank">Hi Fashion[/a]

Moroccan oil

"As much as I hate to jump on the beauty bandwagon, on this occasion I am well and truly on board. It may be a touch pricey (ranging from around £12.85 for 25ml to £30.45 for 100ml) but [a href="http://moroccanoil.com/" target="_blank">Moroccan Oil[/a] is really worth it. Take the tiniest amount, spread it over the palms of your hand and fingers and massage it through damp locks for a seriously sleek mane. And it smells amazing."

Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua

"This week I'm loving the [a href="http://www.chanel.com/en_SG/fragrance-beauty/Makeup-Foundations-VITALUMI%C3%88RE-AQUA-118356" target="_blank">Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua [/a]foundation! The texture is incredible, it's so light it feels like you're wearing no foundation at all, but it still makes your skin look surprisingly flawless. I would describe the coverage as light to medium.  I've been wearing this foundation non stop as it protects my skin with its SPF 15, whilst keeping my face feeling fresh and looking great."
