16 New Beauty Products to Try While You Get Ready to Hibernate for Winter
Because, you deserve it.
It's the final countdown: The holidays are upon us and then we can finally say goodbye to this trash fire of a year.
While we've come to expect the unexpected in 2020, what's certain is that you should treat yourself for being resilient throughout the ups and downs of the past 10 months with one (or a few) of the new beauty products launching in November.
Yes, you should be starting to figure out what to gift all of the special people in your life, but we can all use a little self care going into the colder months, when we'll be spending even more time inside.
So just what does this month's launches have to offer? Well, there's a balm that soothes and repairs skin, on top of protecting it from UVA/UV rays (remember, sunscreen should be worn year-round), and an extreme volumizing mascara that will make your eyes stand out on Zoom, all while feeling completely weightless. And that's just a few new products that are worth trying.
Below, our 16 favorite just-launched and soon-to-launch products to try this month.

Scott Barnes Glamazon Lip Liner
Neutral lips were one of the biggest '90s beauty trends, and no one wore a peachy nude or tawny taupe better than the era's supermodels. That's why celebrity makeup artist Scott Barnes supermodels turned to Tyra, Linda, Naomi, Claudia, and more when creating his makeup line's first collection of lip liners. The Glamazon Lip Liner comes in 10 neutral shades, all named after your favorite supers.

Weleda Sheer Hydration Daily Dew Lotion
While the dry winter air may make you want to reach for a heavy moisturizer, rich creams don't always work for every skin type. That's where Weleda's new moisturizer from its Sheer Hydration collection comes in. The lightweight lotion offers up to 24 hours of hydration, plus leaves skin with a dewy finish. It's all thanks to the collection's hero ingredients, prickly pear cactus extract, and aloe leaf juice.

Simple Kind To Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask

To buy: $10; ikea.com.
Maelove Moonlight Retinal Super Serum
While retinoids are considered the gold standard of anti-aging ingredients, vitamin A can cause some irritation — especially if you have sensitive skin.
