The 7 Beauty Products We’re Most Excited About This Month
Upcoming holidays aside, it’s a great time of year for beauty shopping. Whether you’re looking for gift ideas or just want to treat yourself, here are seven new launches that are more than just pretty packaging—they get the job done, too.
Alien by Mugler Beautifying Hair Mist
Hair mists are the perfect alternative to perfume because they give you a hint of fragrance without being too overwhelming. This iconic scent features notes of cardamom, orange blossom and cumin. Plus, it’s enriched with nourishing oils for dry ends.
Thierry Mugler ($40)
BECCA Cosmetics Light Waves Highlighter Palette
This limited edition palette includes three highlighters in Moonstone (a pale gold), Prismatic Amethyst (a lavender chrome) and Pink Sapphire (a shimmering peach). Use on cheekbones for instant glow—or layer it underneath your eye shadow for an extra pop.
Becca Cosmetics ($34)
Oyin Handmade Ginger Mint Co-Wash
Between dry scalp and static frizz, winter can be rough on hair. This sulfate-free co-wash uses ginger and peppermint extracts to gently remove any buildup without being too stripping.

BITE Beauty Mauvember Limited Edition Multistick
Swipe this creamy stick over eyelids, lips and cheeks for a flattering flush of rosy color. And for every purchase, 50 percent will go directly to The Movember Foundation, a global organization committed to changing the face of men’s health.

St. Ives Revitalizing Body Wash
What if we told you that you could repair dry skin with just a body wash? St. Ives’ newest formula contains blueberries, acai and chia seeds to heal damaged skin and restore moisture every time you lather. Oh, and it smells absolutely delicious.
