Coco Chanel once stated, “If you’re sad, add more lipstick and attack.” Now’s your time.
September has been an exciting month for the fashion and beauty industry. Designers have begun to display their fashion collections, and new beauty products are dropping every week. While there are many products launching for various brands it’s important to hit every category. This includes everything from eyes to face to lips. Here are the top ten beauty products to look for this September… all under $50!
Essie Fall 2017 Collection Nail Polish, $9Nail polish is an essential beauty product because it brings together an outfit and most importantly compliments the rings or bracelets you might be rocking for the day. The Fall 2017 collection by Essie was inspired by the 90’s. The 90’s were all about vibrant colors and standing out; whether you want a lighter or darker shade, Essie’s got it. The collection includes six colors: as if!, mixtaupe, girly grunge, saved by the belle, knee-high life, and dressed to the nineties.
R+Co Skyline Dry Shampoo, $36Dry shampoo has become a saving grace over the past few years. Washing our hair on a regular basis strips the hair of natural oils that we need in order to have healthy hair. Therefore, it is important to have a dry shampoo handy in order to quickly spray and fluff up your hair before walking out the door. The R+Co Skyline dry shampoo is a weightless powder that gives hair an instant refresher.
Jay Manuel Beauty Face Turning Primer, $30
A crucial step in creating a makeup look is to always put on primer before any other makeup product. Your skin will be protected, and the makeup will have something to adhere to for a longer period of time. This primer by Jay Manuel is a balm, that once applied, creates a shine-free look without leaving your face too matte.
NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick, $45
Foundations come in different packages: pumps, wands, sticks, bottles, and tubes. The foundation stick, in specific, is an easy option for someone who is always on the go and likes to apply their foundation without much thought. The NARS Velvet Matte Foundation Stick comes in 20 different shades and includes a built-in sponge to help apply and blend in the foundation.
YSL All Hours Concealer, $34
Concealer is one product that is constantly changing and a product that promises a multitude of results. Anybody that wears concealer definitely understands the difficulty of finding the right one, one that matches their skin and lasts ALL day. YSL created an All Hours Concealer, which has an oil-control effect to last 24 hours. It also includes SPF 20. However, this concealer only comes in 7 shades, so be prepared.
Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand, $38No matter what type of bronzer you like to use (liquid, cream, powder), this product is worth the try. The Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Contour Wand is a bronzer that easily diffuses with skin. It can be blended in with the sponge tip applicator, and comes in two shades, fair/medium and medium/dark.
Burt’s Bees Blush, $9.99
Blush typically tends to be a more personal choice for people, depending on if they want a little bit of extra color on their face, but it is definitely a favorite makeup product of mine. Burt’s Bees has created a blush that comes in three shades. Each one is 100 percent natural, and is infused with honey and bamboo, with a tiny hint of shimmer.
M.A.C. Rollerwheel Liquid Liner, 21
Applying eyeliner is a skill that some people have to adapt to and become better at. To help with that, M.A.C. has created an eyeliner with a tiny wheel tip that glides smoothly across your lid, leaving behind a perfect thick line.
NYX Slip Tease Full Color Lip Oil, $7
Lipstick is also another great beauty product because there are so many colors to choose from. Choose contingent upon your mood or what you are wearing that day. NYX Slip Tease Full Color Lip Oil comes in 12 different shades that glide on smooth and set to a satin-matte finish.
Immunocologie Vital Clay Spot Treatment, $45No one is perfect and we all suffer from the occasional blemish, which is why it’s important to apply a primer and thoroughly clean your makeup off before bed. However, sometimes that isn’t enough and our faces still breakout. The Immunocologie Vital Clay Spot Treatment has four deep-cleansing clays that pull out impurities without leaving the skin dry. This is a good recommendation for people who don’t like to use products with harsh ingredients.
