MOP Glisten

I want to introduce to you my favourite, favourite shampoo and conditioner ever:

Revlon MOP Glisten Shampoo and Conditioner!

I've been using this since february 2009, but because of the price I tried some other things out in the meantime, which were also really good and less expensive, but nothing satisfied me as much (lol) as the MOP Glisten series.

MOP is a "daughter" of Revlon and means "modern organic products". It's not that typical natural cosmetics, but not that conventional stuff either. I'd say it's a mix between both. It has 3 different series: Basics, C-System and Glisten. If you want to learn more, have a look at their SITE!

You can buy it at some hairdresser's shops and online. Source for german buyers

MOP Glisten Shampoo


Contents: maple syrup, avocado, honey, vitamin C, orange extract
Hair Type: coloured and chemical treated hair
Consistency: gel like and transparent
Fragrance: Oranges
Producer's description: Stressed out strands need extra help without the heft. Pure maple syrup and honey boost hair's body and shine while helping to repair damage. Certified organic linseed oil and whole wheat protein restore and protect while you bathe your hair in the freshness of vitamin C infused orange extract.

My Review:

Because of colouring my hair is kinda damaged, of course... the lenghts are dried out and my very fine hair is not very voluminous. No matter what shampoo I use, after washing my hair always feels like felt or straw and it badly needs a conditioner or there is NO WAY to comb or brush it! Really, NO WAY! Glisten is the only shampoo which has not that "felting" effect... I can comb my hair without using a conditioner, it's like a miracle, lol. Although my hair feels clean and refreshed, and very soft and light and after drying it is fluffy and voluminous. I love the smell but it doesn't last very long.

The only con is the price, I paid 14,95€ (Germany). But it's worth it!

MOP Glisten Conditioner


Contents: linseed oil, avocado, whole wheat, honey, maple syrup
Hair Type: coloured and chemical treated hair
Consistency: gel like
Fragrance: Oranges
Producer's description: Need a quick remedy for the stress of getting gorgeous? Help strengthen, restore and protect hair with avocado and linseed oils. Honey serves as one of nature's most powerful humectants and works with jojoba oil to maximize moisture and fullness. Wheat protein helps repair chemical and environmental damage while pure maple syrup infuses hair with body and shine.

My review:

This conditioner has the most unique consistency of all conditioners I ever used. It's not thick and creamy as usual, it's more like a light, white-transparent gel, very nurturing but not weighing down the hair in any way. I used a different conditioner in the past few months (Sante Brilliant Care) which I really liked, but I felt it was too rich and heavy for my fine hair. This light consistency is much better. It has the same orangey fragrance like the shampoo. After using it, my hair combs very smoothly and after drying, it is shiny and voluminous. What could a shampoo and conditioner do more for you? lol

But the same contra here: The price. 15,95€

I'm so sad

My beloved Grandmother passed a few minutes around midnight of January 16, 2010. She suffered from cancer of pancreas.
I have no words to tell you, how sad I am.

In loving Memory of my Grandmother
*22.06.1940 + 16.01.2010

Lay down
Your sweet and weary head
Night is falling
You’ve come to journey's end
Sleep now
And dream of the ones who came before
They are calling
From across the distant shore

Why do you weep?
What are these tears upon your face?
Soon you will see
All of your fears will pass away
Safe in my arms
You're only sleeping

What can you see
On the horizon?
Why do the white gulls call?
Across the sea
A pale moon rises
The ships have come to carry you home

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
All souls pass

Hope fades
Into the world of night
Through shadows falling
Out of memory and time
Don't say: «We have come now to the end»
White shores are calling
You and I will meet again

And you'll be here in my arms
Just sleeping

And all will turn
To silver glass
A light on the water
Grey ships pass
Into the West

MAC Warm & Cozy Haul and Swatches!

Hey guys!

So I've been waiting for this collection for such a long time, it felt like years, lol... it's really my kind of colours but surprisingly I skipped all of the eyeshadows. At first I wanted to get Modelette and Mulled Cider, but Mulled Cider seemed be to close to Swiss Chocolate from the permanent line so I didn't need that one. And Modelette... well, I think I own enough of these beige-brown shades.

So that's my haul. You may laugh, but this is the most expensive MAC LE I've ever had, lol... I got both MSFs, By Candlelight and Comfort, both of the Tinted Lip Conditioners (Feelin' Good and Close for Comfort) and the Nailpolish Blissed Out.

I know many find the MSFs boring because there have been so much similar shades in previous LEs, but I love them and since I'm not the biggest MSF collector, I didn't own that kind of shades yet.
I expected the Tinted Lip Conditioners to be a little bit more pigmented, because the Pink Fish TLC from the Hello Kitty LE was quite pigmented. But they just add a hint of colour on my lips (and taste like vanilla pudding with tons of sugar and a little perfume, lol). I like the feeling they leave on my lips. It's moisturizing and creamy, but not sticky.

Feelin' Good Tinted Lip Conditioner

Close for Comfort Tinted Lip Conditioner

Blissed Out Nailpolish. Nice colour but I needed 3 coats to get it really opaque.

Have a nice Weekend!

I used L'Oréal Casting Creme Gloss #200 Black Brown (Schwarzbraun) from the Glossy Blacks series.
