Hit Refresh On Your Beauty Arsenal. These Are The Products We Want This Fall

 Marissa DeSantis

If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself this fall season consider adding a few new beauty products to your lineup.

In the list ahead, you’ll find plenty of options to fit your preference — from skincare aimed at undoing some of that summer sun damage to limited-edition eyeshadow palettes full of bright, seasonal colors and high-shine lip glosses that are right on trend.


Chanel Les Ombres Tweed Limited Edition Multi-Effect Quadra Eyeshadow Palette

These limited-edition Chanel Les Ombres Eyeshadow Palettes are a Nordstrom Beauty exclusive, packaged in a signature Chanel tweed pouch.

There are four compacts to choose from, each one pairing four complementary eyeshadow shades that can be used individually to color, contour, and highlight, or blended together for a more customizable look.

Each of the quads features shimmering seasonal shadows that give the fall foliage a run for their money, from rich browns that let you play it safe to shades of gold, burnt orange, and even berry that will help you create bolder eye makeup looks.


Redken Dry Texture Finishing Spray

I’ve never met a dry texturizing spray that I didn’t like. If you have fine, straight hair like me, it’s a multi-tasking must-have that adds volume, absorbs excess oil, and gives silky hair a bit of a grip that helps it to actually hold a curl.

Redken’s Dry Texture Finishing Spray achieves all of the above with a lightweight texture that won’t weigh your hair down and a special nozzle that more evenly distributes the product so you can mist it on (and layer it up) without leaving your hair coated in a crunchy film of product.


EltaMD Skin Recovery Night Mask

As the hot and humid weather moves out, it’s time to swap out lighter gels and lotions for thicker skin care formulations that can better prepare your skin for the drying effects of the cold weather that’s coming your way.

The EltaMD Skin Recovery Night Mask was designed to be used as the last step in your evening routine, working while you sleep to infuse the skin with more hydration and fortify your skin barrier to reduce signs of irritation.

The rich formula is non-comedogenic and fragrance-free, so it won’t aggravate acne-prone or sensitive skin types, but it’s still loaded with moisturizing and antioxidant ingredients like vitamin E, jojoba seed oil, hyaluronic acid, and ginger root extract.


Victoria Beckham Beauty Posh Gloss

Glazed lips (and skin) aren’t going anywhere this fall, and Victoria Beckham is adding a few new made-for-fall shades to her Posh Gloss collection.

Fizz, a softer rose shade, and Aperitivo, a rosy brown, will join a line of clear, neutral, and chocolate glosses that you can wear on their own or swipe over your go-to lip liner or lipstick for a shiny finish (there are also two new summery shades in Bungalow and Picante if you like to stick to peachy pinks regardless of the season).

No matter which shade you decide on, all of the glosses are formulated with ingredients like safflower seed oil and black currant seed oil to plump up lips with more moisture.


Paula’s Choice C5 Super Boost Eye Cream

If you spent a little too much time out in the sun this summer, you may be noticing hyperpigmentation in the form of sun spots and a complexion that looks a bit dull.

To treat the delicate skin under the eyes, Paula’s Choice just introduced their C5 Super Boost Eye Cream, which contains 5% stabilized vitamin C to help counteract the visible signs of free radical damage (AKA the damage you accrued while sitting out in the sun).

In addition to vitamin C, the eye cream contains a concentrated form of ginger extract to help with skin discoloration and puffiness under the eyes, as well as hyaluronic acid, shea butter, and peptides, to firm and smooth the skin. For vitamin C benefits that target the whole face, Paula’s Choice also makes a Super Booster serum and a Super Boost moisturizer to help fade hyperpigmentation and brighten the overall tone.


Kérastase Chroma Absolu High Shine Gloss Treatment

If you’re on the hunt for a way to extend the life of your salon color (and that glossy finish you left the salon with), try this Kérastase Chroma Absolu High Shine Gloss Treatment.

Designed to be used from the mid-lengths to the ends of the hair only, this in-shower treatment works in just two minutes to seal the surface of the hair for more shine, less frizz, and added color protection.


ILIA C Beyond Triple Serum SPF 40

You need a broad-spectrum SPF no matter the season, and the new ILIA C Beyond Triple Serum SPF 40 keeps your skin protected without leaving it greasy.

The non-comedogenic and fragrance-free formula pairs sun protection in the form of mineral zinc oxide with 10% vitamin C and 2% niacinamide for more skin benefits.

The water-free serum also contains plenty of moisturizing ingredients like squalane, meadowfoam seed oil, and sunflower extract to leave skin dewy, and it comes in three tints that work to neutralize the white cast that mineral sunscreens often leave behind.


Benefit Cosmetics Gimme Brow + Volumizing Eyebrow Pencil

As quick and convenient as brow pencils seem, they tend to deposit lines of pigment that are too harsh and require quite a bit of effort to blend in.

Not so with Benefit Cosmetics’ Gimme Brow + Volumizing Eyebrow Pencil, which is the very first eyebrow pencil to combine silk cotton tree fibers with powder to build weightless depth and definition to even the thinnest of brows.

The dual-sided tool comes with a spoolie opposite the waterproof pencil to help with blending, and it comes in 12 different shades — from the palest of blondes to deep browns, and even a cool grey — to perfectly match your brows.


Dior Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipstick

A bold statement lip will always be a go-to beauty look, and Dior has launched a new matte finish formula just in time for fall (and winter, too!).

The Rouge Dior Forever Transfer-Proof Lipstick coats lips in rich, pigmented color that looks matte but deeply hydrates with ingredients like sunflower seed wax, sweet almond oil, and jojoba seed oil.

There are plenty of more neutral colors to choose from, but it’s the ionic Forever Dior red and deep berry and plum shades that I’m most excited about.


LOLAVIE Restorative Shampoo & Conditioner

I’m skeptical when it comes to celebrity beauty brands, and generally don’t even bother keeping up with them anymore (seriously, how many could we possible need?). But when Jennifer Aniston launched LOLAVIE with her Glossing Detangler last year, I loved the sample she sent so much that I purchased my own bottle when it ran out (it lasted me nearly a year, in case you were wondering).

Next up on my list of LOLAVIE products to try is the Restorative Shampoo & Conditioner, which pair plant extracts like chia seed and ginger root with vitamins like niacinamide and biotin to gently cleanse, nourish, and protect the hair and scalp.

Suitable for all hair types, both formulas are free from silicones, sulfates, parabens, gluten, and phthalates, and they’re cruelty-free and vegan.



Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush

If Gucci’s tiny star-printed compact isn’t enough to win you over, the gorgeous pink and berry toned blushes housed inside will surely do the trick. The brand’s Luminous Matte Beauty Blush collection features various shades of pigmented pressed powder that blend right into the skin and feel almost creamy in texture thanks to ingredients like shea butter, hyaluronic acid, and black rose oil.


Tenoverten The Protective Suncream

Your hands are not immune to sun damage, and most of us are forgetting about them entirely in our skin care routines. Tenoverten’s latest launch combines a moisturizing hand cream with broad-spectrum sun protection to eliminate adding any extra steps to your morning routine. The Protective Suncream uses mineral zinc oxide for SPF 30 protection that’s non-irritating, plus, a blend of grape seed oil, sunflower seed extract, vitamin E, and hyaluronic acid to keep hands hydrated and further protect them against sun and environmental damage.


Tower28 Beauty MakeWaves Lengthening + Curling Mascara

For a mascara that conditions your lashes as it adds drama, try Tower28’s MakeWaves Lengthening + Curling Mascara. The cruelty-free and vegan formula uses castor oil and vitamin E to nourish lashes without being irritating to those who wear contact lenses or have sensitive eyes. Then, there’s the wand, which is really behind the lash magic. The plastic wand uses three flexible bands that help to grab every lash, depositing jet-black color and building up volume without clumping as you layer it on.


Charlotte Tilbury Sleep Cheat Liner Duo

Using a nude or white eyeliner along the waterline is a life-changing trick for making your eyes look brighter and bigger. Celebrity makeup artist Charlotte Tilbury takes a tried-and-true beauty hack and makes it even better with her new Sleep Cheat Liner Duo. The dual-sided pencil features a peachy-nude color on one side to brighten and a dark navy color at the opposite end for creating a dramatic eyeliner look. Both shades use a waterproof gel formula that glides on easily, deposits pigmented color, and stays in place.


OPI Fall Wonders Nail Lacquer Collection

If you’ve started swapping out your candy-colored summer polishes for fall tones, consider adding one (or more) of the colors from OPI’s Fall Wonders collection into your polish lineup. Available at-home in both the brand’s classic Nail Lacquer and gel-like Infinite Shine formulas, the collection includes shades that range from fall staples like the navy Midnight Mantra and chocolate Brown to Earth to more colorful takes like the olive toned yellow of Ochre the Moon and Claydreaming’s muted purple.
