Winter is coming, sure, but first we have to get through fall—aka every New Yorker's (and Lorde's) favorite season—so please don't rush it. You already know what these upcoming months entail: changing leaves, boots, leather jackets, scarves, and not nearly enough time to soak in the blissful weather before the frost comes bolting in. For beauty fans, it also includes revamping your vanity.
Gels are replaced with creams, charcoal masks with overnight treatments, pink lips with mauve shades, floral scents with woodsy ones—new season, new top shelf. Thankfully, there are a ton of exciting new launches to help beautify your routine. From an impressive limited-edition eyeshadow palette created by the Kardashian makeup artist to hydrating products galore. Click through to see what you should probably, definitely, stock up on this season.
