There are so many great new makeup products launching for fall and I've already been trying a lot of them. While some of them are good, some of them are really great and have become staples in my makeup bag — so much so that I am considering them must-haves for fall. Today I'm sharing top 10 favorites for fall that I've tried so far.
1. Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation
This is a long wearing foundation with a beautiful soft natural matte finish. It offers full coverage without looking full coverage as it looks very natural on my skin. With 24 shades to choose from, there is a match for all skin tones. $40 at urbandecay.com, Sephora, Nordstrom and Ulta.
2. L'Oréal Paris Pocket Eyeshadow Palette
This portable little palette packs a punch with four greatly pigmented shades! Complete with all coordinated colors and one that is made to be an eyeliner, you can blend and create a natural or smokey eye in a flash. There are eight color combinations for an infinite number of possibilities. I like the palettes in Boudoir Charme and French Biscuit for fall. $9.99 at drugstores/mass retailers.
3. bareMinerals GEN NUDE™ Radiant Lipstick
I am obsessed with a nude lip and this fall, bareMinerals is making a tremendous impact on the nude lip with their new GEN NUDE™ collection. The star of the collection is the Radiant Lipstick. This lipstick is super creamy and very hydrating! It comes in the most flattering nude shades (20 in all) made to work on all skin tones. I don't know if I can even recommend individual shades because I like so many. Get to Sephora or Ulta and start swatching! $20 at Sephora and Ulta.
4. Lancôme Juicy Shaker
The Juicy Shaker came out for summer, but I've been using it so much that I am highly recommending it for fall; it's really innovative. The Juicy Shaker is a bi-phase lip oil that looks like a sheer gloss on the lips but feels like a smooth balm. The colors range from nude to softly bright (great to transition to fall. You need to shake them to activate. $21 at lancome-usa.com and all Lancôme counters in stores such as Nordstrom, Sephora or Bloomingdale's.
5. L'Oréal Paris Colour Riche La Palette Lip
This 8-pan lip palette contains eight shades in both cream and matte formulas plus one sparkling highlighter shade to wear on top or in the center of your lip. I love that you are unlimited in how you can wear this — mix, match and layer shades for you own customized lip shades. Choose from a palette of shades in Nude, Pink or Plum. $16.99 at Ulta, your favorite drugstore or mass retailer.
6. Urban Decay NAKED Ultimate Basics
This palette doesn't come out for almost a month, but just looking at it and hearing all about it, I know that it's going to be a must have. This palette takes the NAKED Basics palette to a new level. It has 12 all new matte nude shades that range from really light and fade into darker shades. The shades are all infused with the brand's proprietary Pigment Infusion System which makes their shadows super creamy and blendable — they are some of my very favorite. I can't wait to try the palette and know it will be a favorite because I use Naked Basics and Naked 2 Basics all the time.
7. MAKE UP FOR EVER Artist Rouge Lipstick
If you are looking for a bold new lipstick for fall, start here. Bold color doesn't end here, though, Artist Rouge Lipstick features a very long-wearing formula that is incredibly creamy and even hydrating. There are what seems to be an endless amount of shades to choose from in both matte and satin finishes; there are 15 matte finishes that are so perfect for fall and 30 satin shades in so many colors that I can't even start to pick a favorite. $22 at Sephora.
8. L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation
For glowing skin and all-day wear, this new drugstore foundation is your answer. I am so impressed at both the long wear and natural looking glow that this foundation gives. It's extremely lightweight and easy to apply and blend with a creamy texture. I spread it over my face with my finger then blend it out with a beautyblender sponge. It offers a medium buildable coverage with a gorgeous, natural glow — not too much. $12.99 at drugstores and mass retailers.
9. Urban Decay Razor Sharp Water-Resistant Longwear Liquid Eyeliner
Liquid eyeliner has come a long way as far as texture and wearability. It's one of the things that I've perfected recently too so I'm obsessed with different shades, especially for fall. This new lineup has me covered with its super skinny fine-tipped brush so getting your line super sharp is a breeze. There are 20 stunning shades including lacquered creams and must have metallic finishes. $22 at urbandecay.com or Sephora.
10. bareMinerals GEN NUDE™ Matte Liquid Lipcolor
Like the new Radiant Cream Lipstick, there is an array of nude shades to fall for here, but this is a matte liquid version that is so popular right now. bareMinerals does not disappoint with this formula, as they've made this one super smooth and creamy while offering full-on matte color that is actually hydrating. The color is full coverage and beautiful. There are 20 beautiful matte nude shades to select from. $18 from bareminerals.com, Ulta and Sephora.
