Sunday Riley Artemis

Yes Sunday Riley strikes a winner again! I am a HUGE fan of Sunday Riley having been converted after using Luna and Juno and seeing excellent results.

In the past year my skin has changed (probably age and hormones) and I find it is needing a bit of help to stop minor breakouts. Enter Artemis (£60). Artemis is good for skin that is just a bit all over the place, helping to give balance whilst adding glow.

This smells a bit weird, lemony but weird but I will be honest I don’t care! Sunday Riley focuses on what works not what smells good and that’s why it gets results.

I used this morning and night for the first 2-3 weeks after which my skin was completely settled so I reduced it to morning or evening. It is quite a thick oil that needs a bit of massaging to absorb. After that I do not find it greasy and my makeup goes on very smoothly.

I think if you are suffering from major breakouts the new UFO range (ultra clarifying) may be better, but for confused skin that just needs a bit of calming, Artemis is your friend!

Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo

Ever since Space NK opened in Winchester, my bank balance has been suffering! I love that place so much and am always in there “browsing”. One of those times, I stumbled upon the Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo (£24). Hourglass is just such a gorgeous makeup brand I keep coming back for more (see here , here and here)!

The first thing that drew me in was the packaging – it is divine, so sleek and chic!

The colours are all nude as the name suggests and most are too light for my skin tone but Nude #5 a shimmering golden peach, worked perfectly for me layered over other lipsticks to add a lovely shimmer. This is the “only shade with soft luminosity which adds a warm golden hue”.

I am really pleased I got this and have used this non-stop, especially on holiday. Another winner from Hourglass!
