Mini color exciting pencils, £2.44 each, By Bourjois Mini

I couldn’t contain my glee when I first spotted these. The perfect size for stashing in your pocket or clutch bag for quick touch ups, the pigment is satisfyingly intense and the ultra soft nibs mean the colour glides on smoothly. Thanks to the equally mini price tag I’ll be stocking up on one in every colour (they come in eight shades) and will be first in line when they go on counter on 2 September.

I think I might start straightening my hair just so I have a legitimate reason to own these adorable irons, especially when they’re such a steal. Brilliant for touching up wayward fringes and smoothing wonky ends, these are the perfect travelling companion and come armed with all the technology of regular Babyliss tools (worldwide voltage and a top temperature of 200 degrees).
