    1. A five drawer organiser to help keep all your makeup in one place.

    2. This cute display stand to hold your makeup sponges.

    3. A hand palette that helps you to mix makeup, without the mess.

    Promising review: "This is smaller than I would probably like, but I do have to mix my foundations to get the right colour and for that, this is very handy. It saves me using the inside of compact lids. If anything, I want them to make a bigger palette!" – A. Douglas

    4. Velcro sheets that keeps your hair away from your face.

    Promising review: "I am really into this. It worked so well on my fringe and it felt really comfortable, plus it didn't leave my 10" Brazilian weave frizzy, so bonus points on that. It works better than a hair bobble because you don't get the ponytail dent.– Tolani

    Get it from Beauty Mart, £3.50

    5. A squidger to help you get every last bit of your makeup out.

    Squidger is a small gadget that helps to squeeze the last annoying bit out of your moisturisers, foundations, cleansers, anything in a tube really. I mean, yes you could just cut open the packaging to get all the product, but that means you can't travel with it. So this product is actually worth having.

    6. Silk pillowcases that care for your hair while you sleep.

    7. Washable mascara wands with four different brush styles.

    Promising review: "These were great! I could definitely see a difference between the eye with just my normal mascara wand, and the eye I used the separate wands for. I like that you can choose which effect you want, and the defining brush is super useful for fixing clumping." .– Emma
