40 New Beauty Launches That Will Have You Loving Fall
While sharpened pencils and fresh composite notebooks have their places, we've swapped the thrill of buying new school supplies with stocking up on fresh Fall beauty products. This season's crop of new formulas is truly lust-worthy. From a glam black lipstick to a seductive hair perfume, the following offerings will inspire you to start saving so you can stock up on swag.
RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer
The product: RMS Beauty Magic Luminizer ($38)
Why we want it: The brand's original highlighter, the Living Luminizer ($38), quickly became a cult favorite due to its organic formula and natural glow. This follow-up hue is a slightly bolder rose gold that looks especially incredible on warm complexions.
When to get it: Oct. 27
Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer
The product: Curél Hydra Therapy Wet Skin Moisturizer ($11)
Why we want it: Colder weather often equates to drier skin, as indoor heating tends to strip away its natural moisture. This deeply nourishing formula adds rich hydration back into skin to keep your hide feeling healthy. And because it's an in-shower product, you'll save time in the morning — just slick it onto wet skin after bathing and go.
T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe
The product: T3 Volumizing Hot Rollers Luxe ($119)
Why we want it: This roller set uses larger-barreled tools to create full, loose waves that last (even on stick-straight strands). Just wind a section of hair around a roller away from your face, then clip it in. The lightweight roller will cool in 15-20 minutes, leaving your hair shiny and beautifully styled.
Jasön Dry Spray Deodorant
The product: Jasön Dry Spray Deodorant ($11)
Why we want it: It's hard to find a natural, aluminum-free deodorant that can guarantee we'll smell fresh at the end of the day. Not only does this spritz deliver, but its scent has us addicted, too. The Soft Rose fragrance smells like real blossoms, not artificial perfume.
Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005
The product: Pat McGrath Labs Metalmorphosis 005 ($165)
Why we want it: This kit contains everything you need to create a festive, metallic face worthy of its own fete: four pigments (gold, silver, copper, and bronze) with matching creams, a dual-ended liner, and a mixing medium to customize your sheen.
Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30
The product: Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment SPF 30 ($52)
Why we want it: This generously sized tub contains a whitish-green-tinted potion that cancels out overall redness. Rub it into your skin and you'll find that it completely adjusts to your complexion's hue. If that wasn't cool enough, it treats breakouts and hydrates skin — while somehow magically preventing shine! — as it protects your skin from UVA/UVB rays.
Julep Zodiac Collection Nail Polish Set
The product: Julep Zodiac Collection Nail Polish Set ($168)
Why we want it: This blockbuster kit contains 12 glimmering lacquers, one for each astrological sign. Though you'll be tempted to keep the gorgeous shades for yourself (look at that multichrome Leo polish!), the constellation illustration-covered box makes it an excellent gift.
Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum
The product: Estée Lauder Re-Nutriv Ultimate Lift Regenerating Youth Serum ($295)
Why we want it: We've never seen a serum like this before. If you squirt a dollop onto your fingertips and massage it in, the gel melts and transforms into little beads of dew on your skin. Your face will then drink it in, absorbing the the essences of the Himalayan gentian and the Brazil Everlasting flowers in the formula. In the morning, you'll see firmer, brighter, more radiant skin.
Urban Decay Urban Lash in HBIC Babies
The product: Urban Decay Urban Lash in HBIC Babies ($15)
Why we want it: Individual false lashes add a lot of oomph without looking overly fake on your lids. These densely fluffy sections will make you look as though you got lash extensions for a tenth of the price. Dip the base into a bit of the included glue, then stagger the placement of longer and shorter individuals on your lash line for a more natural result.
Sea Bottle Hand Wash Duo
The product: Sea Bottle Hand Wash Duo ($37)
Why we want it: The lavender scent of this deeply moisturizing hand wash will draw you in, but the brand's eco-friendly mission will be what convinces you to repurchase bottle after bottle. Emblazoned on the front of the packaging (beautiful, recyclable glass bottles reminiscent of sea glass) are the coordinates 39°N by 135°W. This is the destination of the Pacific Gyre, also known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is a United States-sized pile of plastic drifting in the ocean. By using sustainable materials in their products, the founders behind Sea Bottle aim to minimally affect marine life and ecosystems.
Paris Hilton Gold Rush Eau de Parfum
The product: Paris Hilton Gold Rush Eau de Parfum ($60)
Why we want it: The bottle is reminiscent of an Oscar, but we'd argue that it's better than the award. Inside is a sophisticated scent with notes of nectarine, praline, and vanilla that's perfect for date night.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare C + Collagen Perfect Skin Set & Refresh Mist
The product: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare C + Collagen Perfect Skin Set & Refresh Mist ($30)
Why we want it: This delectably scented mist is a must have for its ability to set and refresh makeup, but its real superpower is that it features the ingredient 3-O-Ethyl Ascorbic Acid. This form of vitamin C penetrates deep into the skin to fade dark spots, smooth away wrinkles, and brighten skin.
MAC Cosmetics Spellbinder Eye Shadow
The product: MAC Cosmetics Spellbinder Eye Shadow ($22)
Why we want it: These unique shadows are actually magnetically charged loose powders. They apply as silkily as a cream formula, but boast the color payoff of a pigment.
When to get it: October 20, 2016
Fresh FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer
The product: Fresh FreshFace Instant Glow Luminizer ($38)
Why we want it: Instead of the high-beam glow that you've seen on Instagram, this lightweight cream adds a subtle dewiness that makes your skin look lit from within. Try it on a "no-makeup makeup" day.
Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick
The product: Rita Hazan Root Concealer Touch Up Stick ($25)
Why we want it: This pencil formula of the brand's famous root concealer was developed for temples and brows. Just swipe it on any pesky grays, then brush it through with the included spoolie brush for natural-looking coverage.
Bite Beauty Multistick
The product: Bite Beauty Multistick ($24)
Why we want it: This ultraversatile product has a practically weightless, cream-to-powder texture that blends beautifully into lids, lips, and cheeks. Pack a tube or two in your purse for touch-ups on the go. Because it's so easy to use — and difficult to mess up — no brushes or mirrors are required.
R+Co Cactus Texturizing Shampoo
The product: R+Co Cactus Texturizing Shampoo ($24)
Why we want it: If you're a superstraight-haired gal, you will find a savior in this genius formula. It contains volcanic ash to add grit to even the slipperiest of strands, making hair look thicker, hold styles longer, and have a cool, edgy texture that you've only dreamed of achieving in the past.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation
The product: Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Foundation ($25)
Why we want it: Old-school stick foundation gets a bad rap, but this is nothing like your grandma's formula. The creamy product blends easily into a wide range of skin types and tones (from porcelain to espresso!) and offers matte full coverage. You can even use some of the shades for contouring and highlighting.
Sara Happ x Sprinkles The Lip Scrub Red Velvet
The product: Sara Happ x Sprinkles The Lip Scrub Red Velvet ($24)
Why we want it: Sara Happ makes some of the most delectably scented, luxurious lip scrubs out there, but this one may be her most lust worthy yet. The brand teamed up with Sprinkles Cupcakes to produce a rich, chocolaty, red-velvet-flavored scrub that sloughs away chapping with sugar and nourishing nut oils. Even better, 10 percent of all proceeds will go directly to Baby2Baby, an organization that helps provide diapers and other essentials to children in need.
Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Bronzed Amber
The product: Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed in Bronzed Amber ($38)
Why we want it: Becca's powder highlighters are a cult favorite for a reason: they boast intense luminosity in a finely milled formula. For the brand's newest launch, it combined two of its bestselling illuminator hues — Opal and Topaz — with its Wild Honey blush color to create this stunning, warm bronze with a hint of pink. While it would look gorgeous on all skin tones, women of deeper complexions will definitely find Bronzed Amber to be a new must have.
Shu Uemura Urban Moisture Hydro-Nourishing Double Serum
The product: Shu Uemura Urban Moisture Hydro-Nourishing Double Serum ($38)
Why we want it: Shaking the bottle doesn't just make the contents look gorgeous: it blends the bi-phase serum, combining a nourishing, vitamin-E-packed UV-filter spray with a powerful environmental shield. The latter contains superstrong antioxidants moringa and red microalgae, which fight off pollutants and free radicals that make hair look dull.
Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes
The product: Yes to Tomatoes Clear Skin Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes ($6)
Why we want it: The look of these wipes alone is enough to snag them — have you ever used a black face towelette before? — but the powerful detox effect of charcoal will make you restock. The affordable packet contains 30 wipes that get all the dirt, oil, and other gunk out of your pores, making your skin look and feel super clean.
Stash by Sarah Jessica Parker
The product: Stash by Sarah Jessica Parker ($85)
Why we want it: The latest fragrance from Sarah Jessica Parker exudes effortless, downtown chic, from the gaffer's tape label to the sexy-dirty unisex notes of black pepper, patchouli, pistachio, and musk.
Armani Prima Smart Moisture Serum
The product: Armani Prima Smart Moisture Serum ($100)
Why we want it: This lightweight hydrator absorbs practically instantly, delivering water-packed hyaluronic acid and crimson seaweed deep into the skin. The smooth protective layer enhances your skin's moisture barrier while providing a beautiful canvas for foundation.
Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit
The product: Benefit Cosmetics They're Real! Big Sexy Lip Kit ($29)
Why we want it: This clever quartet of pint-size lipsticks features two shades in each bullet: a flattering, punchy hue paired with a deeper complimentary color to sculpt and define the pout. If you've tried and failed to contour your lips with liner, this achieves the same effects in one swipe.
It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Antiaging Super Palette
The product: It Cosmetics Superhero Eye Transforming Anti-Aging Super Palette ($42)
Why we want it: This Ulta-exclusive palette contains 12 beautiful lustrous shades, with three of them being special "eye foundation" formulas. These tinted base shades color correct and smooth, making it even easier to apply the other hues on top. Each pan of product is loaded with collagen and peptides to firm and strengthen the delicate skin of your eyelids.
Jo Malone Basil and Neroli Cologne
The product: Jo Malone Basil and Neroli Cologne ($130)
Why we want it: This crisp, unisex scent is a nod to one of the brand's most iconic fragrances: Lime Basil and Mandarin. The white musk base adds a bit of weight to this otherwise airy, refreshing perfume. Try layering it with Jo Malone Red Roses to make a lush, floral cocktail or wear it alone . . . you're bound to get compliments any way you rock it.
Alterna Caviar Style Invisible Roller Contour Setting Spray
The product: Alterna Caviar Style Invisible Roller Contour Setting Spray ($28)
Why we want it: This genius spritz allows you to create the look of a classic hot roller set without using any rollers. Try spraying it on your strands, winding your hair into pin curls, and letting it dry. When you let down your hair, you'll see beautiful ringlets (no heat required!).
Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Soft Cream
The product: Caudalie Resveratrol Lift Soft Cream ($76)
Why we want it: This luxurious moisturizer richly nourishes skin, but doesn't feel heavy on the skin. In fact, the peptide-rich cream absorbs almost instantly and dries to a matte finish. We like applying it as a complexion-treating primer before makeup.
Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit
The product: Lipstick Queen Black Lace Rabbit ($24)
Why we want it: This lipstick may be black, but it's far more glam than goth. The ultrasheer, balmy formula is loaded with fine gold shimmer that makes your pucker look plump and pretty. We like layering it over a matte red to create a "smoky lip" effect, but it also looks subtly stunning when worn on a bare pout.
H2O+ Beauty 25th Anniversary Oasis Hydrating Treatment
The product: H2O+ Beauty 25th Anniversary Oasis Hydrating Treatment ($48)
Why we want it: This cooling, pampering formula is loaded with water lily and sea grass extracts to soothe and hydrate dry, tired complexions. For a limited time, you'll be able to purchase it in this larger size and give back to the community. Through its Making Waves initiative, H2O+ will be donating 10 percent of the annual proceeds of the Oasis Hydrating Treatment to Girls Inc. in Alameda County, which helps empower underserved young women.
Lilah B. B.Kissed Lip Balm
The product: Lilah B. B.Kissed Lip Balm ($34)
Why we want it: If you weren't already completely wooed by the pebble-inspired packaging, you'll swoon after testing what's inside. The mint- and lavender-infused formula strikes just the right balance between glossy and balmy, providing your lips with a subtle sheen and ample moisture.
IGK Amaro Ombre Highlight Spray
The product: IGK Amaro Ombre Highlight Spray ($29)
Why we want it: This warm honey-tinted spray was inspired by the Instagram filter of the same name. Blondes and brunettes can mist it on to add subtle highlights to their hair without submitting their strands to bleach. (And yes, the color actually shows up on darker hues!) Guava, coconut, and vanilla notes make the spritz smell yummy, not noxious.
Essence Keep it Perfect! Makeup Fixing Spray
The product: Essence Keep it Perfect! Makeup Fixing Spray ($5)
Why we want it: There are a few products we end up abandoning when trying to travel with only a carry-on. Setting spray was one of them until discovering this pint-sized product. The bottle holds under two ounces of a skin-refreshing, makeup-fixing formula that you can't even feel once sprayed on.
When to get it: September 2016
Frederic Malle The Night Hair Mist
The product: Frederic Malle The Night Hair Mist ($660)
Why we want it: Opulent hair perfume is an indulgent way to wear fragrance, and this scent is especially sophisticated. Just one toss of your hair will cause the seriously seductive notes of oud, amber, and Turkish rose to waft across the room. You better believe that you'll turn some heads . . . and possibly pick up a few suitors.
When to get it: Mid-September 2016
Lancer Lash Serum Intense
The product: Lancer Lash Serum Intense ($150)
Why we want it: This lash serum is developed by one of Kim Kardashian's dermatologists, and while we have no idea if she uses this product, just the mere chance that she might is reason enough for us to purchase. The formula is loaded with polypeptides, biotin, and panthenol to thicken and strengthen your fringe.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer
The product: Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer ($399)
Why we want it: Dyson teamed up with superstar stylist Jen Atkin to develop this extremely technologically advanced hot tool to make it the best one on the market. It's featherlight, so you won't strain yourself during a blowout, but more importantly, it's healthy for your hair. The temperature stays consistent as you style, ensuring the hot air never reaches strand-scalding levels. And gals with thick or curly hair, you should know that fans of the product swear that it's cut their drying time by more than half.
Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer
The product: Clinique Pop Liquid Matte Lip Colour + Primer ($19)
Why we want it: This durable liquid lipstick stays on through sweaty Summer days, so we know it will last through several flutes of Champagne at upcoming holiday parties. Flame Pop, this bright blue-red, is particularly festive.
Youth to the People Kale + Spinach + Green Tea Age Prevention Cleanser
The product: Youth to the People Kale + Spinach + Green Tea Age Prevention Cleanser ($36)
Why we want it: This natural, vegan cleanser is packed with leafy greens — most notably kale, spinach, and green tea — to repair sun damage, fade signs of aging, and keep skin hydrated. It's also incredible at taking off makeup; try using it to remove particularly stubborn mascara residue.
Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick
The product: Huda Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick ($20)
Why we want it: Beauty entrepreneur and influencer Huda Kattan developed this formula to her specifications, and it is truly outstanding. It is durable, comes in 16 ultrawearable colors (from soft beiges to bold reds), and is one of the most comfortable liquid lipsticks on the market.
