Black makeup Organsisers
Packing is most people’s least favourite part of going away, and organising your things neatly can often be abandoned by throwing everything in, sitting on a suitcase to zip up and praying it doesn’t burst open on the way to your destination.
However, if you’re a lazy packer and want easy access to all of your belongings (who doesn’t?), pick up this six pack of insider packing cubes (was £65, now £55) that comes in brick, sky, sand and white shades.
Each cube varies in size so you can dedicate one to socks, skincare, shirts or skirts and compress a bulky load into tidy compartments.
They’re made in water-resistant nylon too and have mesh panels so you can see what’s inside without having to root through.
When packing your skincare, grooming essentials or make-up, make sure it doesn’t leak onto the rest of your luggage with this dopp kit wash bag (was £45, now £22).
The nylon carrier has a coated waterproof interior, just in case your tub of moisturiser leaks, zipped pockets to separate your products and is designed to fit inside any Away suitcase.
Black makeup Weekend bags and carry-ons
If you’re heading away for a long weekend or are on the hunt for a new commuting bag and like to be hands-free, then add Away’s the backpack (was £195, now 97) to your shopping basket pronto.
With a huge half price saving, it’s available in the sale in its black, navy, green, asphalt, coast and sand styles. If you want something easily identifiable, we’d suggest going for a brighter shade.
It’s made from water-resistant nylon, offers a 15in laptop pocket and three main compartments so it can double up as an overnight bag too.
Our reviewers described is as “the kind of bag you would sling in the trunk of a sports car before going for a spin along the Mediterranean coast. It’s a simple, classic travel holdall done really well.”
With a roomy main compartment, generous opening, sturdy pockets and a 20I capacity, it will fit between your legs or in the overhead compartment with ease, with no need to compromise on your travel essentials.

Designed with a four-wheeled spinner, pop-out front pocket for your laptop and main compartment with dividers, it’s easy to organise your belongings if you’re travelling for work, however, should you get carried away in duty-free, simply unzip the expander and gain an extra 5I of space, on top of the 47I you get to begin with.

If you’re planning two weeks in the sun or a trip to the slopes, then invest in a bigger suitcase for easy travel.

It can hold a hefty 64.6I and has a hard shell made from aluminium to survive the wear and tear a baggage handler may put it through, and it’s 360-degree spinner wheels allow you to glide seamlessly across airport floors and train platforms.
The small features such as the hidden laundry bag, leather luggage tag, slow-release handles and a clip-in pocketed panel take this from your average suitcase to a worthy investment.
The large (was £295, now £250) is the biggest suitcase in Away’s line up, with huge 99.2I capacity, so no matter how heavy you pack, you’ll struggle to fill this.

We recommend going for a bold shade so when luggage is offloaded onto the conveyor belt, you’ll be able to spot yours in seconds.
