Bourjois Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner

Top to bottom:  Dynamint, Ultra Black, Up and Brown, Blue Remix

I'd not tried Bourjois' Contour Clubbing Waterproof Eyeliner before - but it's actually a pretty good low-cost dupe for Urban Decay's ubiquitous 24/7 Eyeliners.  There are a few new shades available for summer, including three of the above shades.

NOTD: Essence Colour & Go Nail Polish in Galactic Glam

Essence is big in Europe, and is now available in the UK for the first time.  I've been very, very pleasantly surprised by this Colour & Go Nail Polish - the brush is super wide, allowing you to paint the entire nail in one stroke, and the pigmentation is good enough that two coats were all I needed for perfect opacity - and if I'd been in a rush, I could have gotten away with a single coat.

Galactic Glam is a lovely, shimmering, multi-dimensional blue/green with lashings of turquoise shimmer.  It catches the light beautifully, and performs like a much more expensive polish.

The Perfect Taupe: Makeup Revolution Eye Dust in Etiquette

I'm really loving Makeup Revolution for eye colour at the moment.  I've found their lip products to be pretty hit and miss, but the eye stuff is consistently good - and this Eye Dust is no exception.  Much like MAC's iconic Pigments, it's a loose eyeshadow which can be applied wet or dry, and packs a real pigmented punch.  I bought it in the Etiquette shade, a lovely golden taupe.

Urban Decay Illuminating Beauty Balm

Urban Decay have release two new BB creams this summer - a bronzing one (which thankfully I haven't got to try out) and this illuminating one.  Bit strange, UD releasing BB creams when everyone's already moved on from the BB / CC trend - aren't they a bit 2012 now?

New Bourjois Cream Blush shades for summer - 05 Pink Sunwear & 06 Tropical Coral

Bourjois Cream Blush, launched last year, caused a bit of a stir with it's lovely blendable cream to powder texture and array of soft shades.  This year Bourjois are adding two new shades with a bronze cast, perfect for a bit of summer sculpting.

Benefit They're Real! Push Up Liner and They're Real! Remover

Benefit have made their iconic They're Real mascara the centre of a new mini-brand - meet the new additions, They're Real Push Up Liner, and They're Real Remover.  Granted, neither are really directly related to the They're Real phrase - false lashes, yes, false liner, no - but they do form a bit of an eye powerhouse alongside the original mascara.

Illamasqua Glamore Nude Collection - Naked, Buff and Rosepout

Following on from the launch of their new Glamore formula with the Glamore collection earlier this year, Illamasqua have done the unthinkable and released a collection of nude lipsticks.  It's somewhat of a departure for the brand who previously brought us teal lipstick, dark red eyeliner and glow-under-black-light nail polish.   I'd like to revisit the days of the dark, smoky, theatrical collections from the brand's early days.
