If you’re looking to invest in some great haircare to get your hair in it’s best condition while you’re stuck at home, you need to know about the LookFantastic Color Wow x Rosie Connolly Beauty Box. Worth €69, you’ll get to try out six incredible travel-size Color Wow icons for €56.45, and you’ll have your hair in good nick in no time.

Ganni’s 90’s logo t-shirts are everywhere you look online right now. With dolphins, suns, smiley faces and crystal balls, they look like beach t-shirts and they’re a little kitsch but they’re cheery, joyful and they’re instantly going to make you feel a bit lighter, which is a lot to get from a t-shirt.

Now you’re stuck at home, you’re entitled to a luxe candle. The Loewe candles are some of Instagrams favourite, and right now,  you deserve to actually light it instead of just looking at it fondly.

Yes, AirPod earrings might just be the most extra things you’ve ever seen. Yes, embellishing your earphones is extreme notions, but it’s more than that; they’ll hold them in place and stop them falling out, alleviating your fear of losing them forevermore.

If you haven’t heard about the MAC x Harris Reed collaboration yet, you can have a read here, but here’s what you need to know; Harris Reed is a name you’re only going to hear more about in the future. The designer, dubbed “Harry Styles’ secret fashion weapon” has created a four-piece fluid make-up collection designed to be worn however you’d like. The colours are moody and romantic, with angelic pinks and gilded metallics, and the Renaissance packaging will make you want to display it on a coffee table. It’s limited edition, so be quick.

Finally, mascara leaders Benefit Cosmetics are back with more lash-lifting magic. Meet They’re Real Magnet Extreme Lengthening and Powerful Lifting Mascara. Thanks to a magnetically charged core that pulls the magnetic formula up, you get a scientifically fanned-out lift on every lash.
