A new season is almost here. You know what that means? Lots of new makeup and beauty products to play with! But which ones are worth the splurge? I’ve roamed the aisles of department stores and beauty counters (it’s a tough job, but someone had to do it), and picked the absolute best beauty buys for the upcoming season. Here they are:
#1. Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette ($54.00)
Smokey eyes never go out of style. Not in the fall anyway. Thanks to Urban Decay Naked Smoky, achieving this look has never been easier. The sleek palette features 12 neutral and mysterious shades, a dual-ended brush, a mirror, and a lookbook with tips and inspiration. You have no excuse not to rock this look now!
#2. Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour ($90.00)
The perfect way to rock smokey eyes? With a matte lip, of course! Christian Louboutin Velvet Matte Lip Colour is available in 9 shades, ranging from soft nudes, to fiery reds, and vampy purples. Each lippie comes with a black silk ribbon to turn it into a necklace. How cool is that?
#3. bareMinerals BARESKIN® Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($20.00)
A serum and concealer rolled into one, bareMinerals BARESKIN® Complete Coverage Serum Concealer hides imperfections while nourishing skin. The hydrating formula provides great coverage and a glowy finish, leaving you looking fresh and flawless for hours.
#4. China Glaze The Great Outdoors Collection ($8.00 each)
Inspired by the beauty of nature, China Glaze The Great Outdoors collection features mossy greens, earthy browns, and delicate greiges that are perfect for fall. They come in a variety of finishes too. There really is something for everyone here!
#5. Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer In Monoi Oil ($7.99)
Cold temperatures and harsh weather dry out our skin like crazy! A moisturizer is essential. Our favourite is Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer in Monoi Oil. It can be applied directly in the shower, when wet skin is better able to absorb the moisture it so badly needs. So convenient!
#6. Chanel Blue Rhythm Collection (from $27.00)
Often shunned as unflattering, blue makeup is making a comeback this fall. Get your fix with Chanel Blue Rhythm Collection. It features blue nail polishes, eyeshadows, eyeliners, and even mascara! You’ll look like a mermaid!
#7. Guerlain Abeille Royale Gold Eyetech Eye Sculpt Serum ($130.00)
Banish dark circles and puffy eyes with Guerlain Abeille Royale Gold Eyetech Eye Sculpt Serum. This high-tech serum combines a formula infused with skin-repairing bee products, a unique applicator that follows the natural movement of your finger, and an exclusive massage technique for that wide-open eyes look. You’ll never loo tired again!
#8. Estee Lauder Little Black Liner ($30.00)
Can’t decide between a thin or thick line of eyeliner? Rock both this fall with Estee Lauder Little Black Liner. This dual-ended eyeliner has a waterproof and flake-free liquid formula that easily allows you to create any type of look. Clever, isn’t it?
#9. Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette ($58.00)
The biggest trend of the season? Strobing. If you still think you can’t pull it off, try Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette.It features two face powders and three eyeshadows that provide a soft glow, making your skin look like it’s lit-from-within. No one’ll know you’re wearing makeup!
