We hate to break it to you, but this is the month when the clocks go back. Now, while this does mean you get an extra hour in bed, that novelty wears off pretty quickly when you remember it starts getting dark much earlier. So in the face of not seeing much sunshine for a few months, we have the perfect solution: gorgeously bright lipstick to lift your mood.
Thanks to MAC's new Liptensity lippies, we've got over 20 new incredibly pigmented products to choose from, including a fair few red shades that we've got our eye on. But that's not the only beauty product we'll be buying this month. Along with MAC's offering, we'll also be using Neom's bath and shower drops that are set to help us feel all relaxed and cosy (we're already practicing hygge; are you?), using Jo Malone's new delicious geranium-and-walnut hand cream, plus there's also Benefit's new eye shadow palette that will give you the easiest brown smoky eye you've ever seen. Click through our gallery for more of this month's must-have beauty buys.
As beauty editors, we're known for having at least five lipsticks in our handbags at any given time. But this new lippie from MAC might have just made our hall of fame. It glides on easily and is luxuriously pigmented, plus it comes in more than 20 different colours.
If the moment the air turns even slightly cold, your hands start to dry out quicker than the Sahara, might we suggest investing in a decent hand cream? Jo Malone's newbie smells divine.
Available this month.

Available in six shades, Topshop has created its first-ever cushion compact. The beauty about this product is that you can keep it sheer and just use it to hide certain areas, such as blemishes, or build it for a fuller coverage.
This product is available from October 6 online and in-store.
