The peak Hamptons season is past, and odds are environmental aggressors like sun, sea and chlorine have left some damage on your skin and hair. No need to fret, however, because there are plenty of fall skin, hair and color products to get excited about.
Marc Jacobs doesn’t do anything quietly, so it’s fitting that his beauty range is making its debut with a whopping 120 products. Sold exclusively at Sephora, the collection’s lip shimmers and eye palettes are already hits. Not to be outdone, in addition to a new limited edition color collection, Tom Ford has added four scents to his epic eau de parfum range. Called Atelier D’Orient, the four scents—Plum Japonais, Rive D’Ambre, Shanghai Lily and Fleur de Chine—are each inspired by Asian culture with unique floral, fruit and spice blends.
Also launching a new scent is Fresh; the brand will be coming out with Fresh Life, a scent inspired by an early morning swim and formulated with notes including bergamot, vanilla grass, cypress, grapefruit, lilac leaves, magnolia, cucumber, moss and morning dew, later this year. For men, Paco Rabanne now has 1 Million Intense. A new version of their international bestseller, the new scent launches this month and its notes include blood mandarin, pepper, saffron, patchouli, and sandalwood. Meanwhile Axe, best known for the male scents, is expanding their female range with Axe Anarchy For Her and Anarchy II For Her shower gels. The former is scented with blackcurrant, jasmine and rose, while the latter has apple, mandarin, vanilla and sandalwood.
On the color cosmetic front, Butter London is branching out from nail lacquers with their first ever cosmetics collection. Among the standouts are their creamy blushes and vibrant eye pencils (think lime green or magenta), while Too Faced has launched a unique hourglass-shaped mascara wand with an envelope-pushing name, Better than Sex, to reflect its volumizing power. For high color payoff check-out Ardency Inn, a brand new line that also boasts a liquid foundation, Custom Coverage Concentrate, designed to be mixed into your daily moisturizer for a customizable level of coverage. On the high-high end front, Cle de Peau has a slew of new color products including rose-inspired Satin Eye Colors, Lip Liner Pencils and Extra Rich Lipsticks.
The season’s must-have compact comes to us courtesy of Estee Lauder. The brand’s limited edition Zodiac collection includes 12 collectable compacts molded into one of 12 zodiac motifs, each filled with a fine, translucent pressed powder. As for nails, Essie is always ahead of the curve and for fall the brand looked to cashmere, twill, and lace fabrics to inspire their shades, which include a crimson red, a jewel-toned pearlescent fuchsia, a flannel gray, a deep midnight blue, a grey teal and a maple with olive shimmer.
The newest in hair care is Agave, a just-launched, frizz-fighting range and the first formulated with extracts from the blue agave plant, to nourish and preserve hair color without excess grease. The line includes Healing Oil Treatment, Smoothing Shampoo, and Smoothing Conditioner.
It’s skincare however where there’s been the most innovation. Dr. Perricone has launched Blue Plasma Orbital, a new non-acidic daily peel designed specifically to brighten the eye area. Ideal for tired eyes, it has a cooling gel texture making for a soothing feel while delivering anti-inflammatory benefits. For smoother, younger looking skin beyond your eyes, First Aid Beauty has a new Facial Radiance Serum, a highly concentrated serum that fights the dull, uneven skin, and dark spots caused by aging, sun damage, and acne discoloration. It goes on smooth and absorbs quickly making it perfect for a pre-daily moisturizer multitasker. For a more targeted product, Korres has introduced Quercetin & Oak Instant Wrinkle Filler, a treatment product designed to fill in wrinkles while providing long-term smoothing benefits. Designed to go on quickly with ease, it has a needle nose tip for accurate application.
