From the Fenty Beauty Killawatt Highlighter to the limited-edition Becca X Chrissy Teigen Face Palette, here are the season's make-up must-haves
Sephora's autumn 2017 beauty launches
Having launched both worldwide and in the UAE in September, it seems that Fenty Beauty is all that its hyped up to be. Headed by Rihanna, the make-up brand launched with products focusing on the complexion, and on October 13, the holiday collection, comprising glittered eye shadows and vivid lipstick hues, will be made available. One of the best products from the debut range in stores now, is the Killawatt Highlighter duo. For a fresh, sparkly and slightly pigmented look, brush some Girl Next Door over your cheekbones, nose and outer-eye areas.
The latest launch from cult beauty brand Too Faced, which is known for its uber-cute pink- and peach-themed packaging, is a spray-on primer infused with coconut water. The silicone-, alcohol- and oil-free formula has three uses: spray it on as primer before you apply your make-up, afterwards to set your make-up, or later on in the day when you feel like your face could do with a refreshed look. The brand is also launching a new range of 14 high-gloss, ultra-pigmented liquid lipsticks, called Melted Latex.
Kat Von D Beauty
From Kat Von D, you can expect to see a lot more of the brand's popular palettes, reimagined for the autumn season with bold, glimmering pigments. Contour palettes feature a range of shades for the complexion, while eyeshadow palettes contain deep hues like bronze, mauve and emerald. A selection of new liquid lipsticks will also be hitting stores, along with 100 per cent vegan make-up brushes.
Effective and energising, the Ginzing range from United States-based skincare brand Origins finally hits this region. The brand was founded in 1990 by Leonard Lauder, son of the renowned Estée Lauder, and from October, will retail exclusively at Sephora in the Middle East. Along with the new Ginzing range of eye cream, gel moisturiser and tinted moisturiser, you'll be able to shop the label's active charcoal mask, which will help clear your pores and rid your skin of impurities; and a matte moisturiser, packaged in an adorable millennial pink tub.
The highly anticipated collaboration palette created by Becca Cosmetics and Chrissy Teigen will debut at Sephora this October. The limited-edition palette features a warm tanning powder, blush and illuminator, which can be used to sculpt and highlight the skin. Also launching this season is the skincare brand's new Light Chaser collection, which comprises sparkling illuminators in hues of vanilla, champagne, opal, amethyst and rose quartz. Finally, the new Crystal Lip Toppers will captivate beauty lovers on the hunt for kaleidoscopic, mermaid-inspired glosses that can be worn by themselves, or layered over lipsticks.
Claiming to be the first matte glow moisturiser ever produced, the latest launch from GlamGlow comes in a compact, reflective tub and contains a hydrating, sweet-smelling formula. Makers advise that you put this on underneath your foundation to help prep and prime your skin. Sephora stores will also receive a new drop of the brand's popular DreamDuo treatment, intended to be applied at night, before sleeping.
Tarte kicks off the autumn season with the introduction of an all-new foundation: the Tarte Amazonian Clay Stick. Formulated with vitamin A and Amazonian clay, the long-wear, creamy-matte stick provides medium to full coverage. It can also be used as a spot concealer, or in a lighter shade, as a highlighter. The brand will also debut its latest Clay Play Shaping Palette, which features a decorative, earthy case. And, it's new Maracuja Oil promises to firm, soften and hydrate the skin.
Marc Jacobs Beauty
Ultra-pigmented shades with a splash of glimmer are what Marc Jacobs Beauty proposes for the coming season. The brand's new Eye Conic range of eyeshadow palettes provide wearers with rich, velvety shades that are ideal for a night-out. The six palettes each contain seven shades. Smartorial features hues of blue and indigo, Frivoluxe contains purples, greys and silvers, and Scandalust is punctuated with gold, deep peach and warm burgundy.
Previously titled Made in Sephora, the retailer's in-house label has been rebranded as Sephora Collection. Its latest innovation is a hair mask, packaged with a creamy formula meant to be applied to the hair overnight, and a patterned hair cap to wear while sleeping. New and improved face masks from the brand will also debut this season, along with new lipsticks, lashes, palettes and brushes.
The new beauty collections will all be available at Sephora stores in the Middle East from October 2017. They'll also be available online here.
