Along with our trusty Illamasqua staples, we've been seriously loving the Reign of Rock Collection – released to celebrate their ten-year anniversary. The range is all about that cool, rock'n'roll aesthetic Illamasqua does so well, and features innovative new products alongside some of the brand's heroes in limited edition metallic packaging.

Our absolute top picks? The Jewel Vinyl Glitter Balms and Iconic Chrome Cream-To-Powder Shadows really are unrivalled for creating a seriously party-ready (and party-proof) smoky eye – think high-pigment finishes, multi-dimensional colour payoff and long-lasting formulas that won't budge all night (watch the video above to see them in action).
