RT Large Professional Powder Brush £7.99 £10.99

I already have this brush and it's absolutely amazing. It's the perfect size for setting your makeup with a powder or even for bronzing if you prefer a more sunkissed look. Ideally in my brush collection I'd have two of these, one to set my makeup and one for bronzing my face. Right now I've been using my contour brush but the bristles are densely packed and I'd prefer a larger brush to distribute the product evenly.

Kenneth Cole Reaction Mono Paisley Cosmetic Bag £9.99

I am a fan of a good makeup bag and whilst the huge ones I already have do the job, I'm always on the lookout for a decent sized, pretty makeup bag which would be perfect for travelling. The paisley pattern is gorgeous and the blue trimming really adds to the bag. It folds out into a hanging bag with three compartments to perfectly separate your makeup and brushes. 

Sanctuary Spa Youth Boosting Facial Night Concentrate £7.99 £15.50

After working in a store that stocks Sanctuary Spa (bet you can't guess where) I've always been intrigued by their products. This Night Concentrate sounds like the perfect place to start off, especially since these days you're always encouraged to start the anti-aging process early, or as they call it 'Youth Boosting'. 

The Balm Pink Balm Girls Lipstick £9.99 £13.49 

I didn't even realise that The Balm stocked lipstick, especially since I had only ever bought their eyeshadow palettes before. On the Tk Maxx website they sell three different colours but if I were to buy one I'd go for this muted nude that is more towards a brown than a pink tone of nude.

Nicky Clarke Pro Salon Styling Tong £12.99 £18.99

I love a good hair styling tool and have only ever invested in chopstick tongs, a waver and the normal barrel sized tong. Having a larger barrel would help my hair look more like it's had a beautiful blow dry than having tight ringlets.

Nars Matte Cheeks and Lips Stick £24.99 £39.00 

I have a mini version of this from my Nars Glossybox which I completely forgot to write my post about and only just remembered. I'd love to try the bigger version as it would definitely work on my cheeks better, and I could keep the mini as a handbag version.

Nars Bavaria Eyeshadow £9.99

Having blue eyes I've always been wary about putting on blue eyeshadow. As I've started experimenting more I'm trying out new combinations to still make my eyes look blue next to blue shadows and found this has worked best when adding a tiny bit of blue to a smoky eye. This is the perfect shade as it's light enough to work with.

Estee Lauder Expert Colour Palette £39.99

I've only ever tried Double Wear by Estee Lauder and so many people have spoken about their palettes. I'm intrigued to see whether it's worth the hype since Double Wear is my daily foundation and I have three shades of it to cover me throughout all the seasons and occasions. This would be a really handy travel palette.

L'OrĂ©al Professional Serie Expert Silver Shampoo 1500ml £19.99 £34.00

This is one of the best silver shampoos I've ever came across. It's that good, that if you want to go lilac/silver temporarily then after a few weeks worth of shampooing (a few shampoos per shower) then you can achieve it. The pigmentation in it is that good that if you wanted to dip dye your ends then this would work for it. It really helps with maintaining silver/white hair and if you're looking to take the brassy tones out of blonde/light brown hair then it really works. This is a salon sized shampoo with a saving of £14.01 which I find amazing.

Nars Dual Intensity Blush £24.99 £30.00 

Having tried a miniture version of the Orgasm blush, along with various Nars products I have totally fallen for them for a brand, and may have taken over my love for Mac. This dual blush looks dreamy and would perfectly double up for eyeshadows too.
