We’ll admit it: when it comes to others’ beauty products, we can get a little nosey. From medicine cabinet snooping, to stopping strangers on the subway, we’re never afraid to investigate in the name of beauty. To save you the legwork, we caught up with eight of our favorite beauty bloggers to ask them what new products they’re obsessed with this fall. Here’s the scoop on what the industry insiders can’t live without.
Maree Sye, A Little Bit etcGiorgio Armani Rouge Ecstasy Lipstick: With all the alphabet cream (BB, CC, DD, etc.) craze we have seen over the past few years, it was only a matter of time before the concept moved to color products. Leave it up to Armani to make the jump seamlessly with their new line of Rouge Ecstasy Lipsticks, designed to be both a treatment and color product, or CC lipstick. The texture is smooth like a balm with pigmentation rich like a lipstick. I find they wear for hours comfortably, keeping my lips hydrated while the coverage stays full and opaque. And with a range of shades that go from nude to bold, these lipsticks will be a staple in my makeup bag this fall.
Jeannine Morris, BeautySweetSpotNARS Fury Nail Polish: As someone who exclusively wears dark polish, I swear NARS created this deep purple with me in mind. It has a nice punch to it, which makes it special.
Alexis Wolfer, The Beauty BeanUrban Decay De-Slick Mattifying Powder: I'm loving Urban Decay's De-Slick Mattifying Powder—it takes sheen from oily areas (especially essential before a TV segment!) without adding a dull, chalky finish to my skin. It's great for anyone with oily or combination skin.
Ashley Weatherford, August SkinMake Up For Ever Brushes: Make Up For Ever is launching a massive 76-piece brush collection this fall. I love the look of the wood-grain finish and the durability of the synthetic bristles. I use the powder brush to apply my mineral foundation.
Lindsay Rogers, Belle Belle BeautyKérastase Spray á Porter: Kérastase's new Couture Styling collection finally is giving my fine hair some hold. The Spray á Porter is a beach spray that gives my waves a perfect tousled texture.
Patrice Grell Yursik, AfrobellaUrban Decay Revolution Lipsticks: I absolutely adore the slick glide and the vibrancy of Urban Decay’s new Revolution Lipsticks – they really are as badass as they said they’d be! For summer I was into Bang, a deep orange. For fall I’m loving deeper colors like Venom and Shame, paired with the matching lip liner for cupid’s bow perfection.
Donna Kim, Donna DailyRococo Nail Polish in Pony Club: The perfect greige! It's a staple color for me for fall, and I just love how the shade is universally flattering on everyone
Lara Ramos, The GlossarieLa Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter: As I get older, the name of my skincare game is moisture, especially for my eyes and lips. The new La Prairie Anti-Aging Eye and Lip Perfection à Porter houses an ultra luxe balm and an eye gel that illuminates and lifts. This is a total day-to-night essential. I've been using both products every night before bed and keeping it tucked in my purse for mid-day touch ups.
