The Best New Beauty Products to Pick Up in October
Looking to upgrade your makeup kit and finally move on from that conditioner you’ve been loyal to since the first TRL? You’ve come to the right place. We’ve got the inside scoop on all the latest beauty launches, and frankly, there were so many cool ones this month, it was hard to narrow it down. So we put on the filter of: Which of these would I use forever? And we came up with eight new favorites that might soon be yours. Take a look.
Fenty Beauty Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer
The beauty world stopped when Rihanna’s Fenty Beauty dropped a wide range of foundation for traditionally hard-to-match skin tones, but the brand’s rose-nude lippie is sure to be a hit, too. In a universally flattering shade, the tinted gloss is made of conditioning shea butter that feels as good as it looks.

Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Smoothing Oil to Foam Body Cleanser
Kiehl’s cult-favorite Creme de Corps family just got bigger. The go-to skin-care line created a transformative cleansing oil that suds up as a light foam—sloughing off impurities while hydrating. And even though it’s water-free, the rich formula doesn’t leave you with an oily after-feel.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Anti-Aging Body Cream
Nearly every skin-care line out there has produced an anti-aging facial cream, but rarely do brands create one for your body. This is one of the rare ones. Developed over the course of three years, Dr. Sturm’s formula (comprised of antioxidant-rich grape-seed oil, white almond, elderberry blossom and shea butter) is the answer to diminishing tone and increased imperfections on your arms, legs, and everywhere else in between.

By Terry Compact Expert Dual Powder
Glistening, flawless skin is always the goal, right? Well, this dual powder has everything you need to get the job done. For allover application, apply the powder with a kabuki brush on your T-zone; for a highlighter, go straight for the lighter shade and focus on your forehead and along the nose medial.

Tom Ford Boys & Girls Lip Color Sheer
The lipstick mastermind just introduced 50 “girls” to his mega-popular “lips & boys” collection. They range from cream, matte and metallic textures to sheer and rich finishes, and can be layered or worn alone to suit whatever mood you’re feeling.

Vernon Francois Overnight~Repair Treatment Oils
This lightweight yet deep-conditioning oil replenishes hair’s nutrients while you sleep (score). You just spray on before bedtime (each box comes with four spray vials) and wake up to dramatically revitalized strands—no need to wash out.
Vernon Francois ($42)
Philip B. Everyday Beautiful Conditioner
Then again, you still need something for every day. And this isn’t your typical conditioner: an intense color care that also serves as a brilliant detangler while strengthening over-processed hair.
Philip B. ($48)
Sulwhasoo Timetreasure Renovating Eye Serum
Not all eye serums are created equal, and this bottle (and its price tag) certainly supports that case. It’s formulated with red pine and both red and white ginseng saponins to firm, ease puffiness and reduce dark circles around the eye area. Not to mention it comes with a 24-carat-gold-plated eye massager. Fancy.
