Hair by Sam McKnight Cool Girl Texture Mist, £25 for 250ml

When it comes to sexy modern texture , Sam's McKnight's hair range provides all the products you need to perfect the look. And it seems that you agree - you loved this styling spritz which is especially great if you have long hair but are short on time. All you need to do is spray it onto mid-lengths and ends or, throw your head upside down and spray it through roots, no need to brush it through. Result.

Bareminerals Lash Domination Ink Liner, £18

We've found that this oil-free liquid liner acts as the perfect partner to a set of lash extensions , helping to subtly enhance your eye shape without affecting your flutter. Its prowess extends to creating both thick and thin lines and it offers up good staying power too.

Avene TriAcneal Expert Emulsion, £23 for 30ml

Effective against blemishes and the signs of ageing, this evening moisturiser's a great all-rounder. With both anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties due to its blend of exfoliating enzymes and retinaldehyde (a vitamin A derivative), it's a skincare swap worth making if you're prone to breakouts and spots.

Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G Lipstick in 'The Duchess', £24

Dubbed 'the pink that suits everyone'  by our Editorial Director Victoria Woodhall in February, it's no surprise that this bullet proved so popular. With a hydrating formula that feels great on lips and a multi-dimensional finish, it gives winter weary pouts a healthy veil of colour. It's the perfect complementary pop to another GTG Charlotte Tilbury bestseller - the Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow Stick , a team favourite that we love for its super creamy texture.

Dr Roebuck's True Blue Ultimate Hydrating Serum, £46 for 30ml

'Clean beauty'  was one of the most buzzed-about terms in 2019 and this new Aussie brand's interpretation of it impressed us. Just like the rest of the products in the range, this serum is all about 'minimal ingredients, maximum results,' boosting not just smoothness, but also suppleness thanks to hyaluronic acid, aloe vera and coenzyme Q10.

Revolution Beauty Conceal & Define Full Coverage Foundation, £9

The base version of the range's hugely popular concealer,  Revolution's Conceal & Define Foundation  delivers in terms of shade range (24) and price point (£9). Giving a demi-matte, full coverage finish, it's particularly great if you're in for a long night and its doe-foot applicator offers up great control too.

Glossier You Solid Perfume, £19

You had a lot of love for Glossier  this year, especially the solid version of its first-ever EDP . With a magnetized, flip-open lid, and a buttery formula that melts onto skin, it's the ideal travel-friendly alternative to a clunky bottle for weekends away.
