Stock up your make up bag this summer with these amazing new launches!

This summer we're lucky enough to have not one, but several new product launches from some of our favourite alternative cosmetics companies, with more products than you can squeeze into your make up bag, we're going to be hard pushed to choose between these amazing new finds!

Illamasqua Vanitas collection

We've already been pleased enough to have the bold and brash new Hypnotica collection from Illamasqua, but now we're being treated to another stunning new addition to their range as they unveil the limited edition Vanitas collection.

If the bold tones of Hypnotica were a little too bright for your palette, then you'll just adore the lush romantic notes of Vanitas. Inspired by the dark romance of the 17th century, Vanitas features stunning sultry tones of purple and gold, with their limited edition Rose Gold palette and Matte lipsticks, making for a beautiful collection that you'll just want to snap up! Vanitas launches on July 7th at and counters nationwide.

OCC Summer Capsule collection

But if you'd prefer something with a little more sparkle, then you'll just adore Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics new Summer capsule collection, adding a touch of shimmering colour to your make up bag.

Comprised of six signature shades, including the launch of two new additions to their ever expanding palette of colours, that you'll just adore.

With sugary sweet tones of pinks and lilacs, their new candy pink Working Girl shade injects a shimmering gold tone, contrasting with the dark metallic plum of Strange & Unusual. Both available across their range of lip tars, nail lacquers and cosmetic colour pencils. Stateside readers can snap up the collection now at, we expect UK stockists to have the new range in stock soon!

Barry M nail paint

And if that wasn't enough, we're also being treated to some new additions from Barry M. We already adore their shimmering dazzle dusts and bold nail paints, now we've got some stunning new products to snap up with the launch of their new Molten Metals nail paints. Lush molten chromes with a mirror shine finish, making for a bold look this summer in four stunning shades from copper to bronze.

After trying out all those new launches, you'll want to re-hydrate yourself with Barry M's new Lip Oil, a moisturising and hydrating lip treatment with a sweetly scented coconut oil, we can't think of a better way to recover after trying on those new OCC lip tars! These new launches and more are available now at

We'll certainly need to make some room in our make up bags for these new launches, what better an excuse to give your cosmetics stash an injection of colour!
