September is here which means we've got that back-to-school feeling. It's just like when we were kids and used to buy a new pencil case and pens for the autumn term, but it's a new season and instead we're filling our makeup bags with shiny new cosmetics. Now, just because it's September doesn't mean the weather is going to change all of a sudden. We're still holding out for a few more sunny weeks, but we are starting to ramp up our skincare in anticipation for the colder weather and finding ourselves drawn to richer, more autumnal hues. Keep scrolling for the 10 new beauty buys that will update your look this month.
Think of this like microblading in a pot. Use a small, square-edged brush to replicate the look of hairs to create a fuller-looking brow that appears totally natural.
La Mer has encapsulated its Miracle Broth in soft lotion capsules that are so tiny they penetrate deep down into the skin to deliver the nutrients where your complexion needs them most. Each sphere is encased in a hydrating gel, while the Miracle Broth offers vitamins C, E and B12 as well as nutrient-rich sea kelp. Your complexion will feel seriously hydrated and look plump, but never weighed down by product.
Benefit's Roller Lash (the UK's #1 best-selling prestige curling mascara) now comes in brown. Benefit asked its shoppers what they wanted, and they wanted a brown mascara to use every day. It's a great way to make a bold lip pop.
Exfoliating should be a key step in your skincare routine. It buffs away dead skin cells and dirt that can both block skincare from getting in and can leave your complexion looking dull. These clever grains are a blend of rose, sweet orange peel, black rice and mineral-rich sea salts. You simply mix them in with your favourite cleanser and you're all set. A little goes a long way, and the small bottle is easy to travel with.
In real life this lipstick is a rich deep-looking purple called Poison that offers a comfortable matte finish. It was used on Kendall and co. at the A/W 2016 Dior show, where Peter Philips slicked a layer of gloss over the top for a striking high-shine finish. Keep the rest of your makeup simple and this will make for a striking focal point.
Shiseido has found a way to trigger our own stem cells by using fibroblasts to boost collagen and elastin production. Vitamin A also works to rev up hyaluronic acid that softens the appearance of fine lines, leaving the eye area looking hydrated and in turn more well-rested.
It has been a decade since Pur launched its classic four-in-one compact, so it's launching a sparkly number to celebrate. This clever product combines foundation, concealer, powder and SPF 15 in one. Plus, it contains a cocktail of plant-based ingredients that actually improve the tone and texture of your skin in 60 days.
This season, Leighton Denny is looking back to the 1920s for inspiration. We're obsessed with this deep Bordeaux shade that is classic enough for day, but vampy enough for night.
Elizabeth Arden has created a brilliant foundation that blurs imperfections for a flawless finish, while also packing in the antioxidant-rich idebenone complex that is found in all its skincare. This means your complexion is being protected and your fine lines and wrinkles are being targeted while you're busy going about your day. It contains an impressive SPF 30, too.
A cream bronzer for lips, cheeks and eyes, this ball-shaped bronzer may look cool but it also serves a purpose, allowing you to contour your face. It's a sheer, buildable texture that is injected with coconut water and vitamin E to leave your skin hydrated, smooth and dewy-looking.
