This travel-friendly mascara from the brand Marcelle and features a uniquely curved and tapered brush which ‘hugs’ the lashes, coating each lash with a blacker than black formula. Great for defining, curling and lengthening, this mascara stays in place all day and never clumps or flakes.

We’re all guilty of looking at screens too much these days but help is on hand from Vitamasques with their clever morning Google Eye Mask!

This Works In Transit Camera Close-Up (travel size, full size retails for £32)

I absolutely love this product and have used in many times in the past so I’m thrilled to have it back in my life! This multi-purpose mask, moisturiser and primer in one, instantly smoothes the skin, reducing redness, brightening the complexion and diminishing the appearance of fine lines. Perfect for parties and special occasions.

Worth £15 on its own, this full-size eyeliner pen from Ciaté is specially formulated so that it won’t smudge, fade or budge throughout the day or night. Richly pigmented, the felt-tip marker applies a sleek line whether you’re an eyeliner pro or a newbie – super easy!

Philip Kingsley Body Building Shampoo (travel size, full size retails for £19.50)

To round off this month’s Birchbox, there’s a travel size of Philip Kingsley’s Body Building Shampoo which helps to boost volume thanks to a formula that’s rich in keratin proteins and natural cellulose.
