The Best New Fall 2023 Beauty Product Launches
Sep 21, 2023
From skincare and makeup to fragrance and hair care, we are swooning over the latest products by top beauty brands for seriously radiant skin and hair.
Every new product launch is an invitation to reinvent routines with innovative trends and pamper yourself with masterful creations. Be open to new possibilities, because as design darling Nate Berkus says: “You will enrich your life immeasurably if you approach it with a sense of wonder and discovery, and always challenge yourself to try new things.”
These covet-worthy brands are leading the way to your most radiant self…
Wellness guru Gwyneth Paltrow is full of surprises (hello Airbnb hostess at her serene Montecito guesthouse). And even she was surprised by goop’s vitalizing new Youth-Boost Peptide Serum. “The before-and-afters are pretty amazing to look at,” says Paltrow.
This all-in-one serum inspires a youthful glow with healthy benefits to refine, firm, lift, protect, smooth, tone, and moisturize skin. Clean and natural ingredients—microalgae, black tea, dragon’s blood (a tree resin), safflower, niacinamide—combine to target key signs of aging, provide barrier support, and balance hyperpigmentation. Say goodbye to dull, dry skin and welcome a vibrant visage; the fresh fragrance and luscious consistency are perfection.
French women are known for classic looks. French beauty brand Embryolisse helps women worldwide embrace their beauty, naturally. Embryolisse Exfoliating Milk Powder is the latest addition in a revered line of skincare (originally founded in 1950).
Three parts of a coconut create this novel elixir: the shell is refined to gently exfoliate; the pulp balances tone with a delicate aroma; and the milk—turned into fine grain—softens skin. Mix powder with warm water in the palm of your hand, apply foam, lather, rinse, and voilà…a fresh face awaits. I am charmed by the lightweight and travel-friendly packaging. Bon voyage!
Chic shops adorn Beverly Hills and Parfums de Marly is the neighborhood’s newest gem. Opening their first California boutique just steps from Rodeo Drive, this haute parfumery maison is pure sophistication. Delina’s romantic aroma lingers outdoors and beckons you indoors with a bouquet of Turkish rose, bergamot, cedarwood. Sleek design meets royal majesty in engraved marble and digital displays, a rainbow of glass bottles, ceramic stallions, and celestial lights. With posh couches and grand windows, the space is Parisian pied-à-terre inspired by Luis XIV’s Château de Marly; the stylish upstairs salon is available for personalized olfactory experiences, exclusive events, and masterclasses. A savvy staff awaits your visit.
Parfums de Marly presents dozens of parfums to spark joie de vivre. Greenley's forest-like enchantment (with cashmere wood, violet, and oakmoss) is a personal favorite and divine for any gender…my husband agrees. Valaya is passionately feminine with notes of orange blossom, vetiver, and amber. And Althaïr (sensual with vanilla, citrus, and warm cardamom) is the brand’s latest launch in a lineup of truly magnifique fragrances celebrating the “splendor of the invisible”.
Oxygen is Essential
Take a breather. Element Eight—the trailblazing creator of OATH (Oxygen Amplified Therapy) technology—debuts O2 Niacinamide Eight Active Serum on August 24th. The satiny texture is soothing, hydrating, and feels instantly active. Paired with a high concentration of OATH, hyaluronic acid, niacinamide, peptides, and resveratrol combine for a transformative, anti-aging solution.
Fine lines and wrinkles appear to be reduced, elasticity is restored, and skin tone is improved for lasting results. “Oxygen really creates a healthy cellular environment,” says Element Eight’s founder Gerard Camme. Read our Beautytap Founder Spotlight to learn more about this sensational brand.
A Beautiful Blend
The beautyblender sponge is essential for my makeup style. We have founder and brilliant creative mind + businesswoman, Rea Ann Silva to thank. I am amping up my glam with beautyblender’s BOOST Firming and Smoothing Peptide Primer and BOUNCE Magic Fit Creamy Bronzer & Highlighter Duo. The hydrating and dermatologist-tested primer helps makeup last for up to 18 hours; peptides and ceramides cool and firm, mimosa flower lifts and brightens…cheers to this party in a pretty pink tube!
For a sunny blush, apply the matte bronzer for definition (under cheekbones, on forehead) and accent high points (atop cheekbones, on nose) with the luminous gel-cream highlighter, complete with hyaluronic acid and vitamin C. Pro tip: Blend both with a damp beautyblender for flawless allure.
Stimulate Hair Growth
Revitalize thinning tresses around your hairline with Better Not Younger’s Superpower Thickening Hairpatches. Hydrogel technology—infused with vegan ingredients (red clover extract, centella asiatica, red ginseng)—addresses the root causes for hair loss, strengthens strands, nourishes follicle health, and energizes the scalp.
To enhance hair density, apply these easy-to-use patches on your temples (they won’t pull your hair upon removal); 78% of women report noticeably new growth after 12 weeks of daily use.
Beauty luminaries Jerrod Blandino and Jeremy Johnson (founders of Too Faced) are back with prowess. Their latest genius is Polite Society—a clean, vegan, cruelty-free cosmetics line that heralds makeup as a tool for self-expression and self-love.
Maximize your lashes with Greatest Lashes of All Time (G.L.O.A.T) Mascara. Made with olive wax to nourish and vitamin B5 to vivify, this volumizing mascara is strengthening and lengthening and curling sans clumping. Love your kisser with B.I.G Mouth Lip Plumping Oil Gloss—blueberry oil, infinity pepper (packs a punch!), and ginger root oil hydrate and pump up lips with a high shine finish. A colorful lineup of Go flush Yourself! blushes highlight features with vegan pigments and plush powder textures.
Care for your skin’s health with More Than a Pretty Face Skin-Caring Foundation where willow bark brightens, vegan hyaluronic acid plumps, and niacinamide minimizes the appearance of pores; choose from 30 sumptuous shades.
Bonus brand: For jewelry as dazzling as your face, shine your precious baubles with Jarrod’s and Jeremy’s Diamond Drunk. This plant-powered potion to clean diamonds, gold, and platinum has sparkling effects. Coconut, sugarcane, beetroot, and soda ash naturally cleanse every crevice for unstoppable brilliance.
Retinal to the Rescue
ISDIN Retinal Advanced is an overnight sensation, working wonders while you sleep. Restorative, potent, and made with European expertise, clinical studies reveal 43% less wrinkles in just four weeks of nightly use. That is a profound impact!
Retinaldehyde rejuvenates skin and boosts collagen production; melatonin’s antioxidant properties protect against free radicals; bakuchiol naturally revives elasticity; and a soothing complex with niacinamide adds max hydration. Remember to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen every morning after using retinal. Based in Barcelona, ISDIN happens to be Spain’s top sun care brand.
Harness the Power of Science
Science and supermodel backed LYMA Skincare is setting a new standard. “Proven, pioneering, powerful beyond measure,” says Amber Valletta. This revolutionary technology prevents the causes of aging and empowers different layers of your skin cells to thrive. There is serious technique in how LYMA works, renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Graeme Glass explains the process.
Formulated into a serum and cream, a simple two-step regime (with the “most powerful epigenetic skin science in existence”) is touted as daily dermatology to reverse the causes of aging while improving elasticity, wrinkles, redness, hydration, firmness, and skin tone…in less than a month. For optimal absorption, prep skin by washing face twice prior to application.
A Unique Trio
Greet autumn with a new skincare protocol as makeup artist beloved brand Younique launches GLOWPLEXION. This eco-conscious collection—cleanser, serum, and moisturizer—smooths, enlivens, improves skin texture, and reduces the appearance of pores and wrinkles. Nothing sticky about it…vitamin-rich prickly pear is a lively ingredient that soothes, hydrates, and brightens.
Salicylic acid unclogs pores as you cleanse. Aquacell (made from watermelon rind and apple extract) targets fine lines. And shea butter restores and protects for a lustrous glow. Feel good about your purchase; Younique donates 10% of profits to women in need around the world.
