Not sure what to add to your cart this month? Never fear, here are the best new beauty products dropping in September.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Stick Blush
For the perfect, dewy spring glow, pop Anastasia Beverly Hills’ new Stick Blush in your beauty bag this month. The ultra-lightweight cream formula glides onto your cheeks, while the inbuilt brush allows you to buff to perfection. The buildable formula (which is paraben, fragrance and oil-free) means you easily build your colour from sheer to bold. Perfect for on-the-go, the long-lasting blush is your new make-up hero. It’s available in five colours but Peachy Keen is our personal fave. Shop it here.
Vida Glow Radiance Capsules
If there’s just one product you invest in this month, make it Vida Glow’s new Radiance daily capsules. The next generation of ingestible skin care, Radiance is Vida Glow’s first innovation from their new Advanced Repair range. Created for skin tone perfection, it’s made using an award-winning combination of champagne grape seed and French melon extracts that potently support melasma pigmentation, post-acne dark spots, age and sun spots and dark circles. Take just once a day for a glowing, illuminated complexion. Buy it here.
HUDA BEAUTY Wild Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Mini In Python
Unleash your wild side with this limited edition palette from HUDA BEAUTY. Compact in size (AKA perfect for throwing in your handbag), the palette features the perfect mix of suede-soft mattes, complementary metallics and one never-seen-before multi-reflective, 3D embossed python print. With a mix of bold gold and green chrome shades and earthy tones, this is your go-to spring colour set. Get it here.
Rochway Beauty Sleep
We don’t know about you, but the last 18 months of lockdowns, WFH life and border closures have played havoc on our sleeping patterns, which is why we’re just a little bit in love with Rochway’s new Beauty Sleep liquid. Australia’s first natural beauty sleep tonic combines powerful sleep aids, sour cherry, valerian and hops with innovative probiotics and marine collagen to promote sleep to reset the mind, body and skin. Dairy free and gluten free, this hardworking tonic has been our ticket to getting some quality zzz’s. Try it here.
IT Cosmetics Hello Results Wrinkle-Reducing Daily Retinol Serum-In-Cream
Yes the name is quite the mouthful but holy glowing skin this product is good. Combining the power of anti-ageing serum with the soothing care of a cream, the latest innovation from IT Cosmetics is garnering serious praise, and for good reason—it’s really bloody good. Developed with IT Cosmetics’ board of plastic surgeons and dermatologists to balance efficacy with care, and the formula is infused with a rich vitamin complex including vitamins B5 and E. Quick absorbing cream and suitable for all skin types, this combination product alleviates the common effects of retinol use such as redness, dryness and flaking. Buy it here.
Kester Black UF-Whoa Pencil
We have big love for Kester Black, the world’s first B Corp beauty label that hails from New Zealand. Starting out with nail polishes and lipsticks, they’ve just dropped a range of colourful eye pencils that we’re obsessed with, especially the UF-Whoa in shimmery bronze. Vegan and cruelty-free, they’re made with 100% natural ingredients like organic Jojoba Oil, Shea Butter, Marula Oil and Vitamin E. Get yours here.
Minenssey Clay Hydrating Mask
For those facial vibes without the price tag, this set is an absolute winner for your face and bank balance. Packed with potent Australian native botanicals, restore moisture and gently purify your skin with the Minenssey Hydrating Clay Mask. Apply with the Minenssey brush (that comes with the set) to make you really feel like you’re at a day spa. The unique cream clay texture does not ‘crack’ on the skin, instead leaving it hydrating and seriously glowing. Get yours here.
FENTY BEAUTY Diamond Bomb Highlighter Palette
We love a good highlighter and this newbie from FENTY BEAUTY is a total winner and one of the best new beauty products dropping this month. Featuring three reimagined nude shades—Fenty Glow, Fu$$y, and Hot Chocolit—all inspired by our iconic Gloss Bomb, this baby is your ticket to shimmering, glowing goodness this season. The unique jelly-like powder melts into skin, leaving your face, eyes and body crystal-coated. Honestly, anything that gets us one step closer to looking like Rihanna is a big yes from us. Shop it here.
Rationale #6 The GelCrème
Known for creating some of the hardest working products on the market, Rationale has outdone themselves with the latest addition to The Essential Six Collections. In particular, you need to get familiar with #6 The GelCrème AKA the missing step in your night time routine. Made with a gentle botanical alternative known as Bakuchiol and combined with DNA Repair Enzymes, the GelCrème helps with the cellular repair processes, reversing the signs of environmental damage, restoring skin firmness, plumpness and luminosity. But all you really need to know is that this beauty really works. Try it here.
DEAR DAHLIA Skin Paradise Sheer Silk Foundation
This luxury vegan beauty brand is fast becoming one of our absolute favourites and if you try their silky foundation—you’ll soon covet it too. Available in 35 shades, the Skin Paradise Sheer Silk Foundation is infused with patented Dahlia Flower Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, Argan Oil and Shea Butter. The airy formula’s superhero though is its soft-focus mineral powders which magically blur the appearance of imperfections for an airbrushed finish. Coverage-wise, the silky texture builds weightlessly from a sheer veil to a medium coverage. Buy it here.
