Beauty collabs are far from all created equal, am I right? There are some I'd happily pass by and some I'd immediately pre-order. Here are some I'd plump for...
Look left. Now look right. See that? That's the mountain of beauty collaborations coming at you from all angles. Where should your hard-earned cash go?

The following three, I believe, tick all those boxes.
Nikki Make-up X Sweed Lashes
Anyone who's a regular reader of my Image.ie pieces will be aware of my deep obsession with anything Nikki Wolff does. I live by her Instagram, and when I saw she was releasing lashes with Sweed Lashes (the owner of which I met once and was totally charmed by), I had my debit card in my hand in the blink of a distinctly un-lashed eye.
Alexandra Shulman X Boots No7
Who wouldn't trust a former British Vogue Editor-in-Chief when it comes to beauty recommendations? Boots No7 have collaborated with Alex on a range of Christmas sets that are budget friendly and you could legitimately give to any woman.
