Flesh Fleshpot Eye & Cheek Gloss in Enchantment
We may just be settling into fall, but that doesn't mean you can't start wearing holiday makeup now — especially when it looks as good as Flesh's cherry red eye and lip gloss. Don't freak out over how bright it is because it goes on surprisingly sheer and doesn't feel heavy or sticky on your lips.
Sunday Riley Ceramic Slip Cleanser
Sunday Riley's cult-favorite cleanser just got even better. The brand revamped its clay-based formula (and packaging) so that it sucks all of the dirt and oil out of pores, without throwing extremely sensitive skin off-balance. Plus, it's now $10 cheaper.
Morocanoil Night Body Serum
Treat the rest of your body as well as your face by using a body serum every night. This one by Morocanoil is a mix of firming and nourishing oils like argan, tsubaki, and vitamin C. Another reason to switch from a lotion to a serum: You won't ruin your sheets with grease stains anymore because they absorb so quickly into skin.
Origins Blooming Bold Lipstick
Origins isn't messing around with its return to makeup products. This super-pigmented lipstick comes in 24 shades and is packed with floral essential oils and waxes that'll keep lips smooth throughout fall and winter (aka dry lips season).
MDNA Skin The Beauty Roller
Madonna sees your jade roller and raises you the Beauty Roller. Here's how the latest launch from her MDNA Skin line works: Once you've applied your go-to moisturizer, run the roller over the contours of your face in an upward motion to lift and firm skin, plus promote lymphatic drainage. It can also be used on the rest of your body to relieve tension.
