15 Fall 2016 Beauty Releases You Need In Your Makeup Collection ASAP
Summer may bring high-tech SPFs, glowy bronzers and tan enhancers to give you the perfect sun-kissed complexion, all the beachy wave sprays you can cram into a tote, and a multitude of tropical-scented lotions, mists, and balms, but autumn is finally here and it's coming just as hard for your makeup bag — judging by these new fall beauty launches.
Everything from vampy lip collections and dramatic brow grooming kits, to sinfully addictive new fragrances and must-have essences, lotions, and miracle worker eye creams, is making a debut this season and we're breaking down the best of the best to invest in — with a few budget-friendly buys thrown in. There's even a plumping lip gel patch that will give you a seriously full pucker, an amazing foolproof strobing kit, and a a cool new makeup collab with a photography studio in this beauty bunch.
Whether you're in the market for fun cosmetics to test a new fall 2016 trends, looking for an incredible hair mask to breathe life back into fried summer strands, or searching for a tool that will not only exfoliate your visage, but remove stubborn fuzz and fix uneven tone — I've got you.
Here's everything you need to put your best face forward this fall and then some.
1. Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick
Pat McGrath Labs Lust 004 Lipstick, $25, Sephora
If you paid any attention to Fashion Month (or read this article), you would know wizard MUA Pat McGrath just released her latest lip kit and it's killer. Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell, and countless other models have already been spotted rocking in on the catwalk (and red carpet) and by some incredible stroke of luck, it's not sold out on Sephora.com yet. Play around with the five-piece lip paraphernalia collection — which comes two crazy pigmented matte lipsticks, a clear vinyl gloss, a metallic gold pigment, and a bunch of microfine glitter — just in time for Halloween, because obviously this should be incorporated into your makeup look.
2. Dermaflash + Perricone MD Ultimate Exfoliation & Treatment System
Just consider this the holy grail of exfoliators, in a new and improved (aka limited-edition) form with accompanying Perricone MD products. Dermaflash is the best — who wouldn't love a tiny device that resurfaces your face with a vibrating gentle edge that's 100 percent painless, but 100 percent awesome? After the dry skin and peach fuzz fall off in a few easy layers, you are left with a whole new glow in literally less than five minutes. Follow that up with a one-two Perricone punch: Blue Plasma Cleansing Treatment followed by OVM treatment and you'll have everyone staring at you minutes later, asking where you just got a facial. (They don't need to know it's the hot new spa called your bathroom.)
3. Benefit's Bigger & Bolder And Defined & Refined Brow Kits
If your brows are in need of some support (or a more dramatic look), this personalized set will help a girl out. It contains everything you need to fill, sculpt, and set: Ka-BROW! Eyebrow Cream-Gel Color, High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter, Ready, Set, BROW!, and eyebrow stencils.
If growth isn't your problem and your brows are already on fleek (but just need some perfecting) — this is the kit for you. BROWVO! Conditioning Primer, Precisely My Brow Pencil, a brow mapping tool, and High Brow Eyebrow Highlighter are all included, so you can define and refine those arches.
4. Birchbox x Milk Makeup
Milk Makeup Have a Good Trip, $48, Birch Box
It was only a matter of time before one of the biggest photography studios in the world (for magazine, celeb, and cosmetic shoots nonetheless) launched their own beauty line — with Birchbox. Milk's collection of skin, hair, and makeup products is pretty genius in that they're all designed to be used with your hands (so no brushes required) and they're made with good-for-you ingredients, like hydrating oils and vegetable butters. Try some of their most popular items (in travel-friendly sizes) with the "Have a Good Trip" bag. Included in it are: Natural Dry Shampoo, Oil Lip Stain in Tude, Ubame Mascara, Matte Bronzer in Baked, Sunshine Oil, and a Micellar Water Makeup Remover Wipe.
5. La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion
La Prairie Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion, $240, L a Prairie
One of the most exciting skin care launches this fall has to be La Prairie's Skin Caviar Essence-in-Lotion for the simple fact that it's the first product to ever incorporate 100 percent active caviar water in lieu of regular water. Because let's be serious: Why go for basic H2O when you can get a caviar upgrade? It might sound like a bougie beauty splurge, but it's one that's well worth it. This super hydrating and soothing essence will not only lift, firm, minimize the appearance of pores, and improve your skin's elasticity, but the bottle is massive, which means it will last and last. Apply post-toner and pre-serum and wait for the amazing beauty results to sink in.
6. Urban Decay Moondust Palette
Urban Decay has had a one up on the shadow situation for years now, but their latest palette (appropriately named Moondust) is next-level good. Microfine bits of iridescent sparkle make each of these eight hues pop like nothing you've seen before on the lid, so get ready to have some fun playing around with your eye looks!
7. Coach New York Eau de Parfum
Coach New York Eau de Parfum, $55, Coach
Coach has a brand new look and a brand new scent! Their latest frag, New York Eau de Parfum, blends bright sparkling raspberry, Turkish roses, and a suede musk base for an intoxicating mix you won't be able to stop spritzing all season long. Plus, the bottle's clean new design will look pretty as hell on a vanity tray or perfume counter.
8. Honest Beauty Spotlight + Strobe Kit
Leave it to Jessica Alba, who always has her contour and strobe game on point, to create the perfect palette to allow you to master her flawless look. This kit includes everything you need for #glowgoals: two brightening creams and a luminizing powder, for a universally flattering mix and match combo.
9. OCC Alchemically Altered Lip Tars
The liquid lipstick hype might be all about Kylie and her kits at the moment, but OCC still has one of the bestselling formulas out there, thanks to their highly pigmented colors and natural créme-matte finish. A few of our favorite shades for fall include: a shimmery champagne, a plum-toned rust, and a deep red-violet with a magenta pearl finish. Get ready to win all the #gorgeawards in these.
10. Tata Harper Illuminating Eye Crème
Obviously diamond dust should be a part of your morning routine and if it's not already, Tata's new eye cream will make sure it is. Hyaluronic acid, Spanish lavender oil, and date palm kernel extract all work together to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, while the aforementioned diamond dust gives you a soft luminescence around your peppers. So, you'll look bright-eyed even before that 10th cup of coffee.
11. Stash by Sarah Jessica Parker
To say that Sarah Jessica Parker is a fragrance fanatic would be an understatement. So, when it's revealed that she spent the last 10 years creating her newest perfume, Stash, you better believe I was beyond pumped to test it out. Conclusion: It's just as magical as you would expect it to be, due to a scent cocktail consisting of grapefruit zest, black pepper, patchouli, pistachio, Massoia wood, vetiver, and musk notes. #ComeAndFindIt is her hashtag for a reason.
12. Phyto Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Mask
Phyto Phytoelixir Intense Nutrition Mask, $59, Sephora
Too much time in the sun and surf take a toll on your locks this summer? This mask can help. If you're feeling more Ursula (died-out and crunchy), then Ariel (super soft and shiny), Phyto's Narcissus flower wax, macadamia nut oil packed formula will turn that right around.
13. Skyn Iceland Plumping Lip Gels
Forget scary needles and bee venom-filled glosses you have to keep reapplying, Skyn Iceland's new lip gels will plump up a thin pucker in 10-minutes flat, after you slap on this fun little patch. Highly-advanced plant and marine-based actives sink deep into the skin so you'll get a full Kardashian-worthy pout — if that's what you're going for.
14. Deborah Lippmann After Midnight Collection
Deborah Lippmann After Midnight Collection, $64, Deborah Lippmann
Saturated plums, deep indigos, smoky blues, and forest greens are what should be on your nails STAT.
15. Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask
Dull and dry isn't cute, but refreshed, smooth skin with just the right amount of hydration is and Dr. Gross's two-step hyaluronic mask set gives you that result in less than 15 minutes. Did we mention there's medical grade marine algae, harvested from arctic Norwegian seas in there? We told you it's good stuff. Simply mix the cushion gel with the activating powder in a bowl, spread the formula on in a thick, even layer, then leave on for five to seven minutes, or up to 15 for maximum hydration. Repeat once a week.
There you have it — with these beauty launches in your kit, you'll be glowing all fall and winter long.
