Not only is party season coming up.. but the harsh winter weather is fully here now! To be honest, I absolutely love frosty mornings and cold weather, but I know it can wreak havoc on my skin! I have combination-oily-dry skin (it varies all over my face!) so I like to use products that are both harsh to get the job done (looking at you night-out-make-up) and gentle to take care of my skin. Finding products that are balancing both of these is tough…
This is where Artistry comes in… now – I’d never heard of them before, so I was surprised to find out they’re actually one of the world’s top 5 largest selling premium skincare brands!
Even better (in my eyes), they are part of Amway – an environmentally responsible company. Not only are they committed to renewable energy, but they also don’t test on animals. You can find more about this, and their other commitments, here.
- Commitment to Renewable Energy: Amway has signed a 20-year contract with Wolverine Energy to invest in renewable energy through the first wind turbine farm to be constructed in the state of Michigan. Upon completion, the wind farm will provide 10% of our total energy use at our World Headquarters facilities.
- Animal Testing: Our line of ARTISTRY® skin care products and cosmetics is not tested on animals unless required by government regulations. We actively lead initiatives to create alternatives to required animal tests.
I really love that the make up wipes come with a resealable lid (cause the sticky ones never work) and I loved that the tubes were actually pumps (for no other reason than I just wasn’t expecting it…)
When it comes to make-up.. I’m pretty amateur – I like to stick with the same old brands I’ve used since I was 14 and pray they don’t get discontinued!
HOWEVER, this Artistry make-up was enough to make even me swoon – the packaging is gorgeous (a tad YSL no?) and what I thought was really cool, was that the compact mirror pops off the eyeshadow – so when you’re done with the palette you can chuck it out without binning the mirror, or you could swap it out for a blush if you wanted to take that out with you instead!
What are your thoughts? What do you look for when you’re buying make up?
