Sweater weather is here! September is all about replenishing the skin before the dead of Winter is upon us. This mean’s serums, full coverage foundation and a little bit of glow just because. We’ve pulled together eight of the best beauty products to prepare you for the fall season. Enjoy beauties!
Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette
Just because the balmy weather and sunshine seem to have disappeared, doesn’t mean our highlights have to. The Laura Mercier Candleglow Luminizing Palette can be used for both eyes and cheeks and features two all-over-face highlighting powders, and four shimmery eye shadows that blend perfectly with all skin tones. This palette is also perfect to take you into the holiday season, and all the festivities to come! You can get yours at your local Sephora store.
Kiehl’s Limited Edition Ultra Facial Cream
While this isn’t the first time we’ve talked about this product, it is the perfect time to go out and buy it because they’ve just released a limited edition version. Fall is the perfect tim to start experimenting with face creams and this one is tried and tested. What’s more, it’s produced in collaboration with Lights and MusicCounts, with 100% of the proceeds from this cutely packaged cream going to support keeping music education alive in Canada. Snag one now at the Kiehl’s Queen Street store in Toronto.
Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation
This easy-to-use foundation stick is such a great product if you’re always on the go like us, and need a quick fix here and there. It is available in 21 shades, is long lasting and works as a great multitasker. Due to it being a cream foundation, the coverage is greater, so there is no need to layer. The cover sticks are also a great way to contour the face. Applying a darker shade to the contours of our face (hair line, cheek bones, jaw lines and the sides of the nose) will help to warm and shape the face.
Dr. Brandt Skincare Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water
If you haven’t tried Dr. Brandt’s line of beauty products, you definitely need to. He has a vast collection of serums, creams, and other skin care products where you see actual results within small time periods. The Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water is a cleanser that removes makeup and any dirt that has built up throughout the day. What separates it from other cleansers, is that it doesn’t disturb the PH Balance of your skin. It aids in protecting the skin’s surface from the elements, and helps to prevent inflammation from environmental stressors. You can purchase the Xtend Your Youth Dual Fusion Water at your local Sephora store or online.
Cover FX Custom Cover Drops and Custom Blending Brush
Even Kylie Jenner is talking about the Cover FX Custom Blending Drops! This is literally the best product put onto shelves this year. The revolutionary product allows you to customize any of your favourite moisturizers, oils or serums into the sheerest coverage or a full-on foundation. The concentrated pigmented drops with Feature Flash Fusion Technology provides flawless coverage and incredible blending capabilities. The Custom Cover Drops are available in a variety of shades and act as a great alternative to your regular foundations.
The Cover FX Custom Blending Brush is meant to be used with the Custom Cover Drops. It’s short and dense dome shape offers controlled and precise movements and flawless blending. It’s important that when applying the product, there are no harsh lines or splotches. This brush will not let that happen!
Both products are available at your local Sephora, Murale and Shopper’s Drug Mart Beauty Boutiques. You can also order online.
Shu Uemura x Yazbukey Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte, Noble Pink
Dropping temperatures often make you reach for darker lip colours, but lately when we’re feeling and wearing and grey we reach for a soft pink shade, like this one from Shu Uemura and Yazbukey. Adorably packaged, this limited edition lipstick is highly pigmented and long lasting, so even though the shade is on the softer side, you won’t need to re-apply too often. If Noble Pink isn’t your jam, it also comes in two other gorgeous shades.
Keihl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate
Everyone wants to wake up looking radiantly beautiful in the morning, but it’s been proved time and time again to be harder than we think. Enter, Midnight Recovery Concentrate from Kiehl’s. This lightweight serum helps to restore and improve skin overnight, for a smoother, more radiant appearance by morning. This paraben free concentrate will replenish and moisturize your skin, removing any signs of stress and or tiredness built up during the day. Find Keihl’s at products at Keihl’s stores, online and at Holt Renfrew.
Diptyque Tam Dao Eau de Parfum
You need a new fragrance to help you transition into the fall season, just as you will a new bag and we’re loving Diptyque’s Tam Dao eau de parfum at the moment. When you hear the words eau de parfum, most people tend to shy away at it being too strong by this woody fragrance is at once subtle as it is lasting. Notes of Sandalwood, Cedar, Coriander, Ginger, and Amber, blend together for a surpassingly refreshing scent you’ll want to re-apply through the day (even though you don’t have to). Tam Dao also blends well with a lot of fragrances, so if you’re looking for something to freshen up with in the afternoon once your usual scent fades, this one works like a dream.
You can find Diptyque at Holt Renfrew.
