Give your face a workout with this lifting and volumizing treatment. It has cell-targeting peptides that work from the inside out while gardenia and photo stem cells increase skin's elasticity and collagen production.

$40, available at Neiman Marcus.
According to François Nars, "The best skin is skin that can reflect light." We're inclined to agree with the makeup legend, which is why we've stocked up on his new brightening skin-care line. In addition to the sleek packaging glamming up our medicine cabinet, the line also features a light-reflecting complex, algae extract, antioxidants, and Polynesian seawater to help enhance radiance and revive dull, tired skin.
$72, available at NARS.
Like the other members of the Sublimage family, this luxe mask features Planifolia PFA, an active botanical that combats the signs of aging: wrinkles, sagging, dullness, and dryness. Apply it on to the skin for an instant pampering ritual that will relax, restore, and rejuvenate your tired mind and skin.
$190, available at Bergdorf Goodman.
Are you sensing a theme in our skin-care picks here, in that we clearly didn't use enough sunscreen this summer? Neutrogena's latest offering uses an accelerated form of retinol that helps speed up cell turnover, smoothing out wrinkles and minimizing pigmentation caused by the sun and aging. An added dose of vitamin C helps dim those dark spots down even more.
$21, available at Neutrogena.
We've been waiting a long time for this one: Super-clean and made with organic oils — buriti, jojoba, rose hip, and tamanu — RMS Beauty's long-awaited skin treatment will nourish, protect, and hydrate your skin in the purest way possible.
$74, available at Saffron Rouge.
We've had it just about up to here with our pores — they're attention whores who will do anything to stay in the limelight. We're taking matters into our own hands with this new correcting serum — it promises to instantly shrink pores and minimize their size after regular use.
$225, available at Revive.
Seems like those rainforest fruits are always one-upping our homegrown ones. The latest jungle discovery is the camu camu berry, which boasts 30 times the vitamin C of an orange. This high concentration and potency is said to be the secret behind its skin- energizing, protecting, and revitalizing properties. Overachiever.
$85, available at Sephora.
Made with Japanese red pine oil, this lightweight lotion boosts skin's moisture barrier, resulting in a refined texture and luminous glow.
$115, available at Neiman Marcus.
This new anti-aging serum is like something out of a sci-fi novel — it uses a scientifically-advanced stem technology polypeptides to minimize wrinkles and actually strengthen the skin. Most importantly, it's oil-free and lightweight, so you can give your dry skin the hydration it needs without worrying about causing breakouts.
$95, available at Nordstrom.
We had quite the active summer this year — jetting to the beach, taking long walks, and generally just enjoying being outdoors. Unfortunately, our skin now has the pigmentation to prove it (whoops). Thankfully, this overnight treatment has you covered, as it uses your body's natural, nightly healing cycle to aid in skin repairs. It has a proprietary brightening complex that helps reduce the appearance of melanin build-up, as well as hydrate and revitalize your complexion without any real effort from you.
$54, available at DDF.
Drawing on ancient Japanese traditions, this new night cream from the century-old brand (it looks good for its age, no?) has green-tea extract, Super Yeast extract, sakura leaf, star fruit, okra, ononis, and angelica root to prevent cellular damage, tighten skin, protecting it from the effects of aging. It doesn't hurt that the ageless Jennifer Connelly is the new face of the brand — the star says she's been a loyal Shiseido user for years and we'll do pretty much anything in an effort to snag a goddess glow like hers.
$260, available at Beauty.com.
Skin care that fakes a more awake complexion? We like this trend. The latest in a recent spate of so-called anti-fatigue products comes from Darphin — it's a light and silky serum that claims to give your skin an energized look, instantly. It's enriched with caffeine, vitamin C & E, noni extract, hyaluronic acid, and walnut extract to recharge your complexion, improve radiance, and reduce any signs of fatigue (dryness, dullness, a general air of blah). Just because you spent all night tossing and turning (or partying — hey, no judgment here) doesn't mean everyone needs to see it on your face.
$88, available at Darphin.
We don't know why our youth is imprisoned, but we kind of like the idea of liberating it. This new serum is targeted specifically for the eyes and features a new technology inspired by glycobiology — a field of science that focuses on using the body's naturally occurring sugars to improve your health. The result is an eye area that looks more lifted and firm, plus a reduction in wrinkles, puffiness, and dark circles.
$115, available at Yves Saint Laurent.
One of the biggest skin bummers we deal with in the fall— and year- round, for that matter — is redness and darkness on our visages. Some of these spots and patches are caused by sun damage, some left behind from breakouts, but no matter the reason, they're all annoying. Dr. Gross' latest is a potent blend of ferulic acid, retinol, and glycolic, salicylic, azelaic, mandelic, & hyaluronic acids that work to brighten skin and break down the excess melanin that causes these pesky spots.
$70, available in October at QVC.
The name says it all with this all-natural anti-ager, a follow-up to the original serum of the same name. This one focuses on the eye area, using peptides, plant collagen derived from yeast, ceramide, and alpha- linolelic acid from Arctic loganberry seed oil
$40, available at Ren.
MJ's most-anticipated new fragrance is like youth in a bottle — the charming blend of red berries, honeysuckle, jasmine, vanilla, and coconut water is effervescent, delicious, and sweet without being cloying.
$89, available at Bloomingdale's.
Leave it to Donna Karan to so uncannily capture the softness and strength of a woman. This new perfume is the essence of that balance, using notes of orange blossom, sandalwood, and vetiver to seamlessly blend the two worlds. The result is a heavier, woodsy scent that's perfect for the girl who likes the depth of masculine fragrances but still wants to retain an alluring hint of femininity.
$115, available at Nordstrom.
Chanel explores its dark side with this classic-in-the-making scent. It starts off with the aroma of grapefruit and bergamot, then slowly reveals a heart of rose and jasmine, that finally fades into a warm sandalwood and patchouli base.
$130, available at Bergdorf Goodman.
The brouhaha around K.Stew aside, there's no denying this bottle will get people talking. We'd honestly buy it just for the flaçon, but the scent inside is also equally enticing. It features a head-scratching blend of mint, rose, carnation, vetiver, and amber — they seemingly shouldn't go together, but strangely, it works. Granted it's not a scent for everyone (there've been some polarizing viewpoints around the office), but those who find it appealing are almost fanatical in their devotion.
$125, available at Bergdorf Goodman.
Any fragrance that features a scruffy, sultry Alexander Skarsgard as its spokesperson, we are 100 percent behind. Described as "unapologetically masculine" (hubba hubba), the scent is a blend of mandarin, cardamom, rum, jasmine, cognac, pepper, oud, and musk. We keep a bottle at our desk and the ad as our screensaver — the sniff and stare approach has led to countless afternoon daydreams.
$72, available at Macy's.
You're also going to need a little something that speaks to that other all-important sense — smell. Choose a single showstopper: Michael Kors Gold The New Rose Edition. It has a hint of pink pepper, a touch of sandalwood, and all the radiant, feminine glamour you'll need for the season.
Michael Kors Gold The New Rose Edition, 3.4 oz Eau de Parfum $98, available at Michael Kors.com.
Reportedly inspired by the nickname Paul McCartney gave Stella's mother — LILY for Linda I Love You (all together now: awwww!) — this pretty perfume is based on lily of the valley, but with a modernized feel to it. Blended with green lily, moss, and truffle, the fragrance feels simple and sophisticated — everything a Stella girl should be.
$133, available in late September at Sephora.
Like any good LBD, Guerlain's fragrance interpretation of the wardrobe staple is sexy, versatile, and irresistible. Black cherry, almond, berries, rose, licorice, and black tea create a unique, almost universally appealing aroma. They say every woman needs a great little black dress.…
$80, available at Sephora.
The name means stolen kiss and this delicate perfume is what we'd imagine the smell of romance to be — soft, floral, and powdery. Like the original eau de parfum, the new eau de toilette version features the lily (sensing a trend, anyone?) as the star of the olfactive show, lending its elegance and femininity to this fresh fragrance.
$125, at Saks Fifth Avenue.
A blend of iris, patchouli, and a sweet gourmand gives this unabashedly feminine fragrance its ladylike demeanor.
$75, available at Bloomingdale's.
In this super-luxe scent for the discerning fragrance aficionado, notes of orange blossom, Turkish rose, Egyptian jasmine, absolute, tuberose, nutmeg, musk, and cedar wood flow together to create a heady aroma.
$180, available at Neiman Marcus.
Model-turned-beauty-maven Josie Maran continues her quest for total argan-oil domination with the launch of this new hot-oil treatment. Having VO5 flashbacks? This is hot oil for the 21st century — it's self-heating and natural, so you don't have to worry about glopping up your hair with silicones or messing around with a cup of boiling water. The shower warms up the oil, helping it to penetrate your strands and seal in moisture. The result is shiny, soft, healthy hair that smells AMAZING.
$36, available at Sephora.
While it can be sprayed on skin, this beautiful scent was actually designed with your hair in mind. Superstar stylist Serge Normant, developed the scent with the idea that women could spray it into their hair, so that a flip of the mane would unleash the intoxicating scent to those nearby. In addition to the exotic odor of musk, yang, jasmine, amber, and soft woods, the scent is also infused with jojoba, vitamin E, and aloe vera, which have nourishing properties for your hair and skin.
$60, available at C.O. Bigelow.
Inspired by the cult favorite Essence Absolue oil, this new oil-in-cream version is ideal for those with very dry, unruly hair. It uses camellia oil to nourish and soften the hair as it re-balances moisture levels and protects against frizz. Your strands will look and feel velvety, supple, and shiny.
$45, available at Shu Uemura Art of Hair.
We've worshiped at the altar of Aveeno ever since we were teens — the brand practically has a "do no harm" label on all of its products. When it launched hair care a few years back, we were ecstatic, but there was still something missing that we couldn't quite put our finger on. Well, the answer is now in front of us as the brand is bringing its "Active Naturals" conceit to the dry shampoo category. Sulfate-free and infused with balancing seaweed, this handy spray will soak up oil and dirt, refresh your strands, and help you save some styling time in the a.m. Our lives are now complete.
$8, available at Ulta.
Now fine-haired girls can get the same pampering as their thick-stranded sisters with the new light version of Oribe's famed Supershine Moisturizing Cream. The leave-in conditioner will calm frizz, add shine, and boost softness, all without weighing down already-limp locks.
$49, available at Oribe.
As more and more African-American women begin to move away from relaxed hair and embrace their natural texture, the need for transitioning aids is growing. Enter Carol's Daughter, whose new three-step kit has everything women need to take the textured-locks leap. In it you'll find a Purifying Cleanser, to remove product build-up; a Renewing Scalp Spray to exfoliate the scalp and promote a healthy scalp; and a Restoring Anti-Breakage Treatment to strengthen demarcation points (where the natural hair meets the relaxed hair).
But founder Lisa Price wanted to do more than just throw out a product and leave it at that — she also wanted to provide a resource for all women who were in the process of transitioning. The new Transitioning Movement website, a satellite site for the brand, features tips on transitioning, as well as real-life natural-hair inspiration, and even some input from celebrity spokesperson Solange Knowles. It's like having a friend hold your hand and give you guidance while you embark on your natural-hair journey.
$40, available at Carol's Daughter.
Now that summer has passed, we digging out our irons and gearing up to re-start our heat styling routine. Time to replenish our heat-protective product cache! Redken's new Smooth Lock line has a thermal active polymer that forms a humidity-resistant, heat-activated barrier on the surface of your strands to keep the moisture in your cuticle and frizz, heat, and damage out.
$17, Redken for salons.
As far as we're concerned, not enough brands use honey in their products — it's such a beneficial, versatile beauty aid, not to mention how delicious it makes things smell. Herbal Essences either has ESP or they've been listening to our cubicle convos, because their latest launch not only contains honey — it's based around it. The Honey, I'm Strong Collection uses that liquid gold to coat, heal, and protect damaged areas. Did we mention how yummy it smells? Because it really, really does.
$4, available at Soap.com.
When your hair is super-dry and damaged, it becomes completely unruly and hard to tame. Fekkai's alluringly-named 3 Day Transformation treatment uses advanced technology to prevent keratin loss and protect porous, fragile strands against future damage, leaving it soft, manageable, and, well, transformed.
$100, available at SkinStore.
Just saying the name of this styler makes us want to get it in our hair immediately. It's a conditioning treatment in a light-as-air mousse form. Squirt some foam in your palm, dispense it on frazzled and frayed ends, then comb through to deliver moisture and protection to your locks.
$12, available at P&G eStore.
We've professed our love of L'Oréal Professionnel's Mythic Oil many, many times before — we can't help ourselves, it's one of the few primpers that actually lives up to its name. Once again, it's like a beauty brand snuck into the office and eavesdropped on our private conversations, because the brand has just launched three new blends to complement the original Nourishing Oil: Colour Glow, Rich Oil, and, our favorite, Reinforcing Milk. Each new oil is aimed at a specific type of hair, from dry and unmanageable to color-treated. The Milk is the most versatile of the trio, working on all hair types to strengthen, nourish, detangle, and soften.
$21, L'Oréal Professionnel for salons.
This hair mask hits on all of those watchwords we love: omegas, rainforest, natural, gluten-free, vegan. It uses ungurahua oil, sunflower seed oil, gluten-free quinoa protein lavender, and eucalyptus to restore, heal, moisturize, and strengthen your strands. According to the brand, it's like "insurance for your hair." Sign us up.
$58, available at Rahua.
We love it when it feels like a brand launches a product just for us. Kérastase takes that feeling of customization to a new level by extending its legendary Elixir Ultime into a full family of oils, each targeted at different hair types and needs. Got fine, sensitized hair? Grab the Rose Millénaire formula, which provides lightweight moisture and shine. Addicted to color? The Imperial will help your dyed strands maintain their luster. And, if you've been less than nice to your hair this summer (guilty), Moringa Immortel will replenish and nourish those damaged strands lickety split. Now your biggest quandry is trying to figure out which one is right for your strands.
$54, available at Kérastase.
We've been saying "yes" to Yes To Carrots for a few years now — we love its commitment to natural and its appealing price points — so, when we saw the brand was expanding into hair care, it was a total, well, no-brainer. Yes To Cucumbers is for those seeking protection for their hair color, while Yes to Blueberries targets damaged hair, and the namesake Yes To Carrots hones in on dry, itchy scalps. All three lines are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and natural extracts to ensure your hair is lush and healthy, without all the nasty sulfates, silicones, and parabens.
$8, available at Target.
While we sadly do not yet have an in-office stylist on call for daily blowouts at our cubicle (hint hint HR), Ojon's got the next best thing with its new blowout perfecter. Thermal-activated, it adds smoothness, gloss, and manageability to your mane. It also essentially makes achieving that perfect blown-out look a little easier — although not quite as easy as having a pro do it for you (we've kind of run out of polite ways to drop hints here, guys).
$25, available at Ojon.
While everyone thinks blondes have all the fun, they actually get the short end of the stick, color-wise. They're prone to dullness, brassiness, and fading, plus their delicate strands need a bit of extra lovin' — especially if the blonde comes from the box and not genes. Alterna's new line of blonde-specific treatment products is looking to give flaxen-haired lasses the TLC their locks need with the restorative Caviar Blonde collection. The star product, the Blonde Beauty Balm, uses caviar, vitamin C, plant-derived melanin, marine botanicals, lemon, chamomile, and honey (whoo-hoo!) to brighten, prevent brassiness, protect hair from UV damage, restore strength, hydrate, soften, and protect. It's the cure-all for all your Goldilocks woes.
$28, available at DermStore.
Just when you thought it was safe to check out the foundation aisle, here comes a whole new round of BB creams. We can't say this is news that makes us sad: We're out-and-proud BB cream converts, so we're thinking the more the merrier. While we've seen launches from a few indie brands and heavy-hitters, this fall brings us even more diversity in the category, with launches from eco-friendly The Body Shop, high-fashion Dior, and drugstore-mainstay Lumene, Keep it coming, guys — we're going to do everything in our power to collect them all.
$20, available at The Body Shop; $56, available at Dior; available at Lumene.
MAC has teamed up with three celebrated illustrators — Julie Verhoeven, François Berthoud, and Nikki Farquharson — to bring you mini works of art on makeup bags. We're still trying to figure out a way to frame these guys…
$30-35, available at MAC.
Available in four hues — helllooo navy blue — this modern liquid liner from NARS features a needle-thin tip for precise application, vibrant color, and long-lasting (we're talking up to 24 hours here) wear.
$27, available at NARS.
Anthropologie, why you must you torture us so? It's bad enough we already spend a good portion of our paycheck on clothing and accessories, but now you had to go and launch your own line of lipsticks? And not just any lipsticks — ones in vintage-style cases and super-flattering hues. Now you're just being cruel.
$18, available at Anthropologie.
This magic wand is a 4-in-1 lash amplifier that will give you the fringe of your dreams. What's makes a 4-in-1 mascara you may ask? Not only does this multi-tasker create volume, curl, and length in your fringe, it also has a fringe-boosting formula that strengthens and grows your lashes with each application.
$32, available at Sephora.
Hello Kitty gets her prep on with this new palette. The outside features Kitty's face with a houndstooth pattern, red velvet bow, and snazzy specs, while the inside serves up a quartet of pretty shadows and a houndstooth-patterned powder blush.
$36, available at Sephora.
The hallmark of any good foundation is that it can cover imperfections without feeling heavy on your face. Armani's latest complexion perfector has SPF 15 and a pigments suspended in an oil base that fuse to the skin, leaving behind minimal residue and an absolutely feather-light feel to the skin, not to mention the hydrating and softening benefits it has.
$62, available at Nordstrom.
Sephora has upped the ante on makeup tools by completely re-launching its Pro Brushes line. They feature hand-shaped bristles, longer handles (for better control), and a dazzling array of shapes and applications. Time for an upgrade!
$7-38, available at Sephora.
Formulated with anti-aging ingredients, this shadow stick duo gives you great color, long-lasting wear, and helps smooth and firm skin. Frankly, we could care less about the anti-aging benefits — we're more in love with how amazing that gold looks on our lids.
$30 for two, available at QVC.
When we heard manicurist to the stars, Deborah Lippmann, was launching her first line of lipsticks, our immediate reaction was who do I have to stalk to get this in my makeup bag NOW. That's because Deborah promised these colors would be like lacquer for your lips — creamy and opaque, but still high shine. Fortunately, it was a lot easier to find them than we thought it would be — she just released two Lip & Nail Duets, which pair some of her most popular polish shades with a complementary lipstick. So far there are only two colors — I'm Every Woman and Let's Do It — but we're having a ton of fun brainstorming what's next on the docket.
$38 for lipstick and nail polish set, available at Deborah Lippmann.
This new beauty line indulges our ferocious, James Bond-like love of crafty gadgets. Hidden inside the top of this average-looking mascara is a liquid liner and brush. Space-saving, good-looking, and high-tech — Daniel Craig would approve.
$26, available in October at Secret Agent Beauty.
Featuring four bold, jewel-toned cream shadows, is one palette we wouldn't mode tangoing with (sorry, we had to do it).
$45, available at Sephora.
They already had success taking their clothes off twice before, so why not go for three? No, we're not talking about Playboy bunnies — Urban Decay's latest Naked launch is all about showing some skin, your skin. Featuring 18 shades and a state-of-the-art formula, it will help hide imperfections without feeling heavy on your face. Anti-aging peptides, antioxidants derived from lychee fruit and green tea, vitamin E, light-diffusing pigments, a luminous finish, and hydrating sodium hyaluronate make this one smart foundation.
$38, available at Urban Decay.
This gel highlighter gives you a subtle shimmer, a hint of color, and that elusive glow you've been chasing since Labor Day.
$28, available at Nordstrom.
Fake an awake look (we really need that beauty trick in the a.m.) with this handy kit — it contains an eye brightener, three flattering shadows, a contour brush, a concealer brush, and a booklet of handy tips and tricks to help you score the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed effect.
$32, available at Benefit.
These made our list simply because these look so impossibly chic when you pull them out of your bag in the ladies' room to re-apply. What can we say, we're easy to please.
$48, available at Sephora.
In terms of eyeshadow, there's literally nothing easier than a chunky shadow stick. Priced at the bargain basement deal of $2, this jumbo crayon from E.L.F. has vitamin E and goes on smooth for a quick shot of streak-free color in just one swipe. Did we mention it's only $2 and comes in 10 shades?
$2, available in November at E.L.F.
We've tried a LOT of mascaras in our day, but the fact remains that there's simply no brand out there that does mascara as well as Lancôme. Its latest comes in a glitter tube, has a tapered brush, a glossy-gel finish, and is endorsed by Betty Boop and Daria Werbowy. Need we say more?
$28, available at Lancôme.
Hey mineral makeup devotees: We think you should sit down for this one. Comfortable? Okay, don't freak out, but Bare Escentuals is now offering its infamous mineral makeup in a pressed powder form. Good news for those who are devoted to their minerals, but hate dealing with loose powder making a mess of their bathroom/makeup bag/car/vanity/life.
$29, available at Bare Escentuals.
Wow, ask for something and brands really will deliver, huh? Even more honey goodness, this time in the makeup sector, thanks to Bite's new lip lacquers. They're infused with pure manuka honey to add a glossy shine and seal in moisture.
$24 each, available at Sephora.
Sonia Kashuk strikes again with yet another adorable, high-quality set of makeup brushes. These mini tools — a multi-purpose brush, angled shadow brush, crease brush, and shaped blending brush — feature a gorgeous tile print on their handle that's sure to liven up even the dreariest of makeup bags.
$13, available at Target.
We love us a tinted moisturizer, but sadly in the colder months, they tend to make our skin too greasy. We like the lightweight feel, but need something that doesn't make it look like a BP oil tanker crashed on our face. Jouer's new Matte Moisture Tint gives you a hint of color, a bit of moisture and, you guessed it, a matte finish. Great for transitional weather, when you're not ready for a full face of makeup, but your usual routine of concealer and moisturizer just isn't going to cut it.
$38, available at Jouer Cosmetics.
Admit it: The name alone sucked you into reading this description. That's what got us to pick it up out of the myriad concealers clogging our beauty closet. This creaseproof, long-wearing cream comes in one shade (suitable for most fair and medium skin tones) and functions more like a tinted eye cream than a concealer. It's loaded with SPF protection, vitamin C ester, and neuropeptides to help camouflage dark circles, revive tired eyes, soften fine lines, and function as an eye makeup primer.
$45, available at Perricone MD.
Pump up the volume on your fringe with this plumping mascara. It features what the brand is calling a "mega-brush" (go on…) — 29mm in length and 10 mm in diameter. Couple that with a lash-fattening formula and softening jojoba, palm oil, and vitamin B5 and you've got the makings for one heckuva mascara.
$7, available at CVS.
Never in a million years did we think the words "Estée Lauder" and "punk" would be used in the same sentence, but here we are. This chunky liquid liner delivers a super-thick (yet still precise) obsidian line that can edge up any fall beauty look.
$22, available at Nordstrom.
When they say this stuff lasts, they're not kidding: Our senior beauty editor swatched a bright red on her hand, and spent the rest of day trying to scrub it off with soap, cleansing oil, and makeup remover. It was still stained on there when she woke up the next morning. So definitely make sure you really like the color you apply — it might be on there for a while.
$12, available at Sephora.
If you've been resisting trying primers, we've got one question for you: What the hell, dude? Primers are one the easiest, most surefire way to make sure your makeup stays in place. Not to mention that the latest launches hitting the shelves are also infused with skin-correcting benefits. Case in point: Neutrogena's shine-reducing new entry and Smashbox's dark spot-correcting option. As the name says, they're more than just primer and now's the perfect time to finally give one a try.
$12, available at Walmart; $42, available at Sephora.
Another entry in the humongous brush family, Lorac's new lengthening and thickening mascara features a smudge-proof, flake-proof coating that's buildable and will help you achieve that faux lash look — without all the sticky glue and awkward blinking.
$23, available at Lorac.
Big brows are a hallmark of fall beauty, so make sure yours look groomed and gorgeous with this double-ended brow enhancer. One end contains a waterproof brow powder pencil, while the other has a tinted gel infused with vitamin B5 to nourish and keep those unruly brows in place.
$18, available at Target.
The problem with most long-wear lipsticks is that while the color may last, they suck all of the moisture right out of your pout. Stila's newest delivers on the stay-all-day claim, but also keeps lips lush and color creamy thanks to vitamin E and avocado oil that hydrates and softens.
$22, available at Bloom.
The advent of BB creams, and their sister CC creams (and the inevitable DD creams and EE creams we're sure are already popping up at this very moment in some Korean department store) has forced many companies to look at how their complexion products function for today's time-strapped consumer. We want multi-tasking products that make our lives easier and our get-ready routine shorter. That means we're seeing more foundations infused with treatment ingredients, combining skin care and makeup into one seamless application. L'Oréal's Visible Lift Repair Absolute Foundation does just that, helping to obscure and hide imperfections while anti-aging ingredients and moisturizers work to treat your skin while perfecting. Here's hoping this a trend that continues — we're all about making things easy.
$15, available at Ulta.
Creamy, lush, hydrating color — this new conditioning lipstick literally drenches your pout in pigment, moisture, and firming peptides. Pucker up!
$21 each, available at Too Faced.
Dangerous curves indeed — this puffed-up brush delivers curl and color to your fringe, creating a Zooey Deschanel-worthy gaze that might stir up a breeze every time you blink.
$8, available at Rimmel London.
These luxe shadows are almost too pretty to use — we said almost. Featuring a moisturizing formula and smoothing argan-oil extract, the limited-edition metallic shades look amazing on essentially every skin tone.
$45, available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Sephora continues its love affair with Pantone by launching a whole line of cosmetics with the color authority. We fell hard for the nail polishes (no surprise there), which are inspired by precious gems and feature a mesmerizing duo-chrome, metallic finish. Please tell us there are going to be many, many more of these to come.
$9 each, available at Sephora.
We've got to give this upstart polish brand some major props — it tapped into the nail-art craze by teaming up with popular experts like Madeline Poole to create custom sets of DIY nail art. Each set comes with five colors and detailed instructions on custom designs by Madeline herself.
$24, available at Sephora.
We've talked a lot about the trend of matchy-matchy nails and lips recently — there's just something so elegant and chic about wearing identical shades of nail color and lipstick. The trend can veer into granny territory if you opt for too dowdy of a shade, so steer clear of musty pinks and boring "spice" hues. Butter London has made the whole trend easy for you, creating matching lippies and nail colors. We like the blackened-red La Moss, named after none other than Kate Moss — it lets you get your match on without veering into frumpy territory.
Lippy, $17, and Nail Lacquer, 14; available at Ulta.
We have to give Estée Lauder major props: It made our dream of Tom Pecheux-designed nail polishes come true. We're coveting pretty much every shade, but Chaos and Dressed To Kill, a fiery golden-red and metallic taupe, are our top picks for the season. Get. On. That. NOW.

At first glance this looks like a ginormous bottle of nail polish, but it's hiding a cool secret — remover concealed in its base. We're loving this little gem for travel, because you don't have to worry about lugging along an extra bottle if you are planning to attempt a vacation pedicure — we all know those never turn out quite as well as our at-home painting sessions, so you definitely need something on hand to wipe away smudges and streaks.
$15, available at Duality.

This dark and moody crimson hue is pretty much the epitome of chic, statement nails for fall. Of course the brand behind it would be By Terry, a name synonymous with effortlessly gorgeous, luxurious, ladylike beauty. The super-rich hue and high-shine finish is made even more appealing by its long-lasting finish (thanks to polymer components) and a fortifying formula that actually strengthens the nail.
$30, available at Barneys.
The khaki craze hits your nails this season, and Chanel has managed to take the timeless elegance of a classic trench and transfer that to your tips with their new Frenzy shade. Careful, Burberry…

Calling all Disney Princess fiends (we know you're out there): Sephora has paired up with the Magic Kingdom to release limited-edition collections of beauty products based on your favorite Princesses. First up is Cinderella, complete with her own fragrance, eyeshadow palette, and compact. We consider ourselves more Ariel girls, but we have to admit that the set of mini nail polishes is kind of amazing, even if it is devoid of whozits and whatzits galore.
$24.50, available in October at Sephora.

Bees are having a serious moment right now (Gwyneth devoted a whole GOOP newsletter to the buzzy little guys), so of course we had to represent them on our list. Neal's Yard's new body lotion uses organic honey, orange, and mandarin essential oils to soften and scent your skin. Best of all, they're part of the brand's new Bee Lovely campaign, which aims to inform people on the decline of bees and how you can help to save them.
$34, available at Neal's Yard.
It's a sad, kind-of-crappy fact of nature that when we age, our skin gets droopy and saggy. While many of us fight to keep our faces looking taut and tightened, our bodies are often overlooked until it's too late. This new treatment from StriVectin (yes, of stretch-mark-cream fame) uses a proprietary molecule to help strengthen skin's barrier, preventing water loss and lifting thin, crepe-y skin.
$59, available at Ulta.
Just because it's fall, that doesn't mean you have to smell like a pumpkin exploded on you. We prefer the subtle fragrance of this lotion, which blends gardenia, jasmine, and camellia to create a light, floral bouquet of scent. It also has an infusion of botanical oils to keep your skin hydrated and soft to the touch.
$29, available at Lierac.
