Original Source Lime shower gel: Expect to see an Original Source shower gel in all of my 'empties' blogs! It is the only shower gel I ever pick up. In particular I like the Mint and Tea Tree one because it is so tingly and fresh but I also use the lime one (as above) and the lemon one. I shower in the morning so I find these gels perfect for that time - refreshing and uplifting and totally wake me up. My skin always feels nice after use and the good news is that Original Source tends to be on special offer at Boots. This shower gel can be found here for only €2.

NARS Light Reflecting Pressed Powder: I am a NARS junkie but this powder did absolutely nothing for me. In fact, I would go so far as to say that I was happy to hit pan so that I could move on and invest in something else. I couldn't even tell that I'd used it after application and therefore its price tag was most definitely NOT worth it. Goodbye and good riddance!

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask: The above is a travel sized version of the product which I bought to take on a flight to the US at the beginning of September. As somebody who has taken eight transatlantic flights so far this year, I can tell you that the Drink Up mask is my best friend! I always noticed that after spending a number hours on a plane, my skin would be dehydrated, patchy and flaky. I now take my make up off at the beginning of a flight, slather this on and my skin remains fine. It is also the ultimate winter skin savior! The full-size is available for purchase here for €30.50. Worth it, I promise!

NARS Larger Than Life eyeliner in Via Veneto: Nothing else compares to this! I've read a lot of blogs where people say the Rimmel Scandal Eyes eyeliner is a good dupe. I do like the Rimmel eyeliner, but this is the holy grail. It's the first eyeliner I've ever finished actually! Blackest black and so long-lasting. It is €25 and can be bought here.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz: When I first started using this, I thought it wasn't overly special but when it began to run out I realised I was in love. This pencil has such a fine tip that it allows you to create the most natural looking brow. It really takes so little effort to fill in eye-brows with this but with maximum reward. This is now a cult item for me. Buy it here for £15.50/€18.57 and you will never look back!

Benefit They're Real mascara: One of my all time favourite mascaras. It is jet black and I find it both lengthening and volumising. It is quite a hyped mascara but I do believe that it is worth it. Try it here for €26.

Umberto Giannini Catwalk Beauty Hairspray: I have super fine, quite long and straight hair which I tend to curl a lot and I use hairspray to attempt to hold the bounce. I haven't yet found a hairspray which I am committed to. I grab any old hairspray mini from Boots to throw in my handbag. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but it's not amazing either. Buy it here!
