The Fall Beauty Starter Pack: 25 New Products You'll Regret Not Buying
There are two camps of people in this world—those who mourn the end of summer with inconsolable sadness, and those who anticipate the onset of fall with unbounded glee. As sad as we are to bid our weekend swim uniforms and summer fridays adieu, we'd have to say we most identify with the latter camp. From boots to sweaters to pumpkin pie and Hocus Pocus, there's just so much to look forward to. Not to mention, fall-centric beauty launches aplenty.
Here at WWW HQ, we've been up to our ears in all the very new, very exciting hair, skin, and makeup debuts, and we're ready to share the standouts with you. In fact, we're so obsessed with the freshest crop of offerings, we've handily arranged the most necessary products by category; hair, nails, makeup, skincare, and bodycare to keep your wish lists and shopping carts as organized as possible. (Many of these are limited-edition for fall, so we recommend that your credit card strike while the iron is hot!)
Ahead, a beauty editor-curated list of 25 fall beauty must-haves you definitely need this season. All of which, might we add, are $100 or less. Keep scrolling!
Your Staples for Great Hair
Spiked with a blend of AHAs, peppermint oil, a soothing flower complex, glycolic acid, caffeine, and malachite extract, this new exfoliating scrub from Oribe is the bottled equivalent to the best head massage of your life. Oh, and it also paves the way for fast and shiny hair growth all winter long.
We'll just say this, some of the most popular hair-growth supplements have semi-horrifying ingredient lists. Do your research, or just rest easy with these nutritionist-approved vegan supplements from the hair experts at Briogeo.
Not only is this new dry shampoo the best-smelling formula on the market (think rose, bergamot, lychee, etc.), it utilizes volcanic minerals, Rhodiola rosea, and rice starch to tackle even the worst greasy hair days so you can, in fact, leave the house and show your hair in public. (With pride to boot!)
Drying our hair is like doing the laundry—we just don't want to. That said, Drybar's handy new serum reduces your blowout time while protecting strands from heat in one fell swoop.
Sisley Paris is one of our all-time favorite French beauty brands, and this pre-shampoo mask acts as a much-needed cleanse for your post-summer hair. Fortified with top-notch ingredients like white clay, java tea, artichoke leaf and more, all you have to do is spray it by section to your dry scalp and hair, give yourself a scalp massage, leave it to marinate for about 10 minutes, and then shampoo and condition as normal.
Your Staples for Great Nails
You heard it here first, folks! The french manicure is back, and these brilliant peel-off stickers make a DIY version at home completely effortless.
We anticipate Smith & Cult's seasonal color launches almost as excitedly as we do Friday happy hour, and this new fall neutral is at the tip-top of our try-on queue.
Complete with six fall shades and the best topcoat we've ever used (your nails will stay perfect for at least a week or two), this cozy-hued set has everything you need for your fall nail wardrobe.
"Ginger," "Egyptian ochre," "Curcuma," meet the warm and spicy adjectives defining Fauna, J. Hannah's newest polish release that's universally flattering and quintessentially perfect for fall.
Fall is the best time to collect all your basics, and the same goes for the tools and accessories that will make your hands and nails look professionally manicured. This is the best kit we've found and features a glass nail file, cuticle nippers, cuticle oil, and a pair of the very best nail clippers on the market.
Your Staples for Great Makeup
Despite its silky balm texture, this hyaluronic acid–filled foundation yields a luxe matte finish, comes with a handy brush, and plays nicely for every single skin type—from the dryest of the dry to the oiliest of the oily.
We've never been so infatuated with any other eye shadow palette and have no plans of wearing any other eye accessory all season long.
This new compact from Marc Jacobs is not only huge and will last you forever (we recommend dusting it all over your face and body with zero abandon), it also manages to be one of the prettiest powder luminizers we've seen in action all season. It's a limited edition for the season, so get it before it's gone.
This mascara from Tarte isn't new—it's still the same cult-loved four-in-one formula—but it does have a brand-new tartan jacket just in time for the big chill.
Everyone needs an amazing red lipstick for fall, and out of all the new lippie debuts we've swiped thus far, this chic, slim little number from YSL has stood out the most. It's the perfect amount of sheer, featherlight, and gives you that coverable just-blotted look in seconds.
Your Staples for a Great Complexion
Get excited because everyone's favorite French skincare brand just released a purifying new facial cleanser featuring 100% natural salicylic acid to keep your skin perfectly clear this season.
Between the cooling silver tip and brightening under-eye formula, it doesn't get better than this new $10 from The Inkey List. In fact, the formula is four times more brightening than your normal dose of vitamin C.
If you invest in one big statement beauty piece this season, make it something from Tata Harper's new Supernaturals 2.0 line. We're big fans of this Concentrated Brightening Essence, which features gorgeous ingredients like caviar lime and larch tree while mulberry fruit and phytic acid to target dullness and dark spots in particular.
You've probably heard of M-61's PowerGlow Peel ($66)—it's one of the most famous and wanted glow-gifting products you can buy. This version has all the same exfoliating and pore-purging magic but gifts you with a beautiful gradual sunkissed tan to keep you feeling radiant even in the darkest hours of fall and winter.
Chapped and cracked lips are one of our biggest nemeses come fall and winter. This new formula from Biossance is brilliant—it's vegan, so it's made without beeswax and petroleum, and uses beautiful things like rose, hyaluronic acid, and squalane instead to keep your pout plush.
Your Staples for a Head-to-Toe Glow
ICYMI, Nécessaire makes the dreamiest all-natural body remedies, and the brand just launched an epic new body exfoliator to stand next to our body wash and body lotion in the bathroom. MVP ingredients include bamboo charcoal, pumice, glycolic acid, salicylic acid, and lactic acid. Just use it once or twice per week, massage it all over, let it foam and do its magic, and then rinse. You can also choose fragrance-free or spa-like scents like sandalwood or eucalyptus.
We don't know about you, but as far as aches and pains go, our feet (especially after a long day) are the biggest offender. So, thank the heavens for this new launch and collaboration between the CBD maestros at Lord Jones and shoe geniuses at Tamara Mellon. Each tube contains 200mg of CBD.
You've heard of the transformative power retinol holds for our complexions, and not surprisingly the same prince can (and should) be applied to our bodies! That's why we're obsessing with this overnight treatment from luxe Australian skincare Cosmedix. Basically, it's like a face-lift for your entire body and helps firm and tighten.
We always entrust all of our bodily glow needs to our girl RiRi, and this fall season she didn't disappoint. Limited-edition and likely to sell out, this roll-on liquid highlighter is like portable Paris filter for your face and body. Put it in your purse this Friday night, and you won't be disappointed.
Our moments in the shower (especially at the end of a long day) are precious, and we do everything in our power to make it as relaxing and luxurious as possible. If you feel the same, you need this detoxifying potion from the skin perfectionists at Kayo. Its roster includes charcoal, willow bark, rosehip seed oil, and avocado oil, and leaves skin feeling hydrated, cleansed, smooth, and soothed post-wash.
