Our Top 10 Favourite Beauty Products of 2021
What. A. Year. We’ve gone from lockdown to normal life (well, kind of) and these were the products that saw us through it all. These are the beauty products that we have all tested and loved here at Artemis so we thought we would do a roundup of our top 10!
Refy Brow Pencil
On a mission to redefine the way we think about beauty, influencer Jess Hunt launched her own makeup brand, REFY. Designed to complement all skin types and skin tones, the brand’s beauty products are all about encouraging you to embrace your natural beauty and feel confident in your own skin – what’s not to love?
We're absolutely in love with the Refy Brow Pencil
! It has completely changed the game for us and makes doing our brows in the morning so easy!
Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask
It's pampering time! This is BY FAR our favourite mask to use. This Origins Charcoal Mask
is designed to deeply exfoliate and provide a deep pore cleanse. We love how this mask really brightens our skin up, a game changer!
Olaplex No.3 Hair Perfector
Everyone is talking about it, and there's a reason for that! If you're looking to achieve shiny, healthy looking hair at home then this is your new bff. We're in love with this incredible Olaplex Hair Mask
and it's the best product out there for restoring and strengthening your hair! Trust us on this one, and your hair will thank you!
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid
The Ordinary Hyaluronic Acid is a serum like no other. It's a NECESSITY. At such an affordable price we always have at least 2 on the go in our makeup bags! Hyaluronic acid is essentially a hydrating serum which leaves your face feeling nourished, hydrated and soft. It's been a life saver this past year, especially in the winter months!
Ok, these are just cute. We always have a couple of these in our makeup bags and they are the cutest alternatives to bobbles! We also love these Pop Bands
because they don't leave kinks in your hair, win!
Mario Badescu Spot Drying Lotion
The holy grail of spot creams. Enough said. If you see a small pimple showing up, this Mario Badescu Spot Lotion
is your new best friend. Grab a cotton bud, pop a little bit of this lotion onto it and pat onto the affected area. Leave overnight and the pimple will be gone! It's incredible.
NARS Creamy Concealer
Our favourite concealer of 2021! An unbelievable coverage, without feeling 'cakey'. This NARS Creamy Concealer
leaves you glowing and we can't recommend it enough! If we were stuck on a desert island with one makeup product, it would probably be this! We also love that it comes in a cute 'mini' version, so if you're travelling or if you just want to give it a go, the size is perfect!
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara
The perfect mascara doesn't exi- Except it does. It's this one right here.
We never leave home without this Roller Lash Mascara
, it gives you volume and length without looking clumpy! Benefit have really out done themselves with this one. 10/10.
Urban Decay Ultra Glow Setting Spray
We all know about the OG Urban Decay Setting Spray, but there is a new one and you're not ready for it. This does everything the same as the original setting spray, but the key difference is this one gives you a stunning glow. Yes please.
This Urban Decay Glow Setting Spray
is definitely one of our favourite pieces from 2021!
Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder
We've been using this powder since we were... probably about 16 years old and it's STILL our favourite powder year after year. This powder beautifully sets your makeup in place and smooths out your skin like nothing else. If you haven't tried the Laura Mercier Powder
then let 2022 be the year that you do. You won't regret it.
