As much as I love a good drugstore spree, nothing quite hits the spot like a luxury purchase. I've rounded up my top five picks that I would recommend to anyone on the hunt for a treat.

1. Charlotte Tilbury The Dolce Vita Palette (£38)
This will come as no surprise to some, from the luxurious packaging to the high quality formula of eye shadows. This palette has 3 beautiful shimmery shades that can be worn day and night and a stunning glitter pigment. Worth every penny.

2. NARS Sheer Glow Foundation (£31)
My holy grail foundation - it glides over the skin offering medium-full coverage providing the most airbrushed, perfected finish. Comes in huge amount of shades, you're guaranteed to find your perfect colour. Also contains no SPF making it ideal for nights out or if you know theres going to be lots of flash photography. Lasting power is good, although if you have oily skin I would suggest a primer.

3. YSL Rouge Volupte Lipsticks (£26)
If you can resist the urge to buy one of these purely for the expensive gold packaging then you deserve a round of applause. But it's not just the packaging that makes these so special, the quality of the lipstick is unlike anything else I know, it's very hydrating and feels almost weightless on the lips. The shade Nude-beige is my absolute favourite nude shade, it goes with basically every make-up look. 

4. Urban Decay Naked Palettes  (£38.50)
I love urban decay eye shadows, they're pigmented and blend like a dream. The Naked palette offer 12 shades within the same neutral family that can be mixed and matched to create an array of looks. There is 4 Naked palettes (1, 2, 3 & Smokey) and 2 Naked Basics. My favourites are 1 & 2 and the original Naked Basics. 

5. Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Colours (£23)
These cream eye shadows are in stick form making them super easy to apply. They come in a selection of beautiful shades including metallic finishes and matte ones. You simply swipe, blend and then once they've dried they don't budge all day. The shades Rose Gold and Moonlight are my absolute favourite.
