Sisley Black Rose Cream Mask Instant Youth

This is not cheap at £90 for 60ml, but it’s quite an amazing product. Sisley say on the tube that this face mask is a ‘Smoothing, plumping, brightening’ cream. It worked for me, restoring life and softness to my sallow-looking skin in 10

minutes. I’ve used it several times after long, tiring days and hey presto, I look like I’ve benefitted from a deep sleep. Recommended.

Lipstick Queen

What a good idea. Poppy King has created a range of lipsticks, all of them red and all available in a couple of finishes.

Lipstick Queen recognises that we can’t all carry off a deep red matt, a la burlesque beauty sirens. Some of us want a sheer finish. Lipstick Queen’s myriad shades are available either as Sinners (90% pigment, rich, opaque colour) or Saints (10% pigment, sheer, translucent colour). All lipsticks are enriched with shea butter, vitamin E and jojoba to ensure an ultra-comfortable feel. I love Fire Red in the Saints finish, £15.
