Fasten your seatbelts because October is gearing up to be a wild beauty ride. With so many new launches in makeup, skin, and hair brands, we are truly spoiled (and shamelessly love it). Here are out top picks for our October 2021 beauty list:
Dolce & Gabbana The One Gold
Dolce & Gabbana just released their newest fragrance, The One Gold (Dhs437, Sephora). This feminie perfume is scented with top notes of sparkling mandarin, vibrant pink pepper, and juicy gold plum. The heart of the perfume is a bouquet of florals, featuring rose superessence, sultry jasmine, and lily of the valley. At the base of The One Gold is heady patchouli intermingled with sweet vanilla. We love the super luxe look of this gold bottle. It’s not only an upgrade to our perfume wardrobe but for our vanity as well.
Rasasi Perfumes Shabebah Hair Mist
Rasasi Perfumes Shabebah Hair Mist (Dhs95, Rasasi Pefumes) is an alcohol-free hair mist that’s packed with hair hydrating and nourishing ingredients like argan oil. The Shabebah scent is a feminine woody floral that gives off just the right amount of fragrance when you artfully toss your hair. With notes of tangerine, plum, ylang yland, and vanilla, you cannot go wrong with this gorgeously packaged and scented hair perfume.
l’Elixir de Glaciers Fluide Merveilleux
l’Elixir de Glaciers Fluide Merveilleux (Dhs1388, Galeries Lafayette) is an anti-aging and regenerative facial essence made for all skin types. This essence is designed to be used both morning and night. It contains double sturgeon DNA to prevent laxity in skin and restore skin to a more youthful looking complexion. It also contains three key bioavailable minerals to enhance the ability of skin’s cells to function optimally. The result? Brighter and more radiant skin with an enhanced bounce and plumpness.
Christian Louboutin Sooooo…Glow Lipsticks
What’s more fabulous this autumn season than Christian Louboutin coming out with a new lipstick range. The cutomisable Sooooo…Glow lipsticks (Dhs240, Louboutin) glide on like a balm with some serious colour payoff. Start by selecting your favourite shade (there are 15 fabulous ones to choose from) and then pick your case colour of choice. After you select your case, customise your vegan lipstick with your preferred charm accessory. These luxurious lipsticks are not only long-lasting and hydrating but they also are your own piece of Louboutin inspired art.
Chanel Sublimage Le Baume
Chanel’s Sublimage Le Baume face cream (Dhs1695, Sephora) contains natural butters and plant oils to soothe, soften, and nourish skin. This plumping moisturiser contains hydrating hyaluronic acid and moisturising glycerin to restore skin’s radiance and promote a more youthful looking complexion. Formulated with exclusive active ingredients harnessed from the Vanilla Planiforia plant by Chanel research, this cream enhances the appearance of skin and the results reflect the flawless embodiment in the spirit of the Chanel woman.
Dyson Flyaway Attachment
Frizz begone with the new Dyson Flyaway Attachment (Dhs150, Dyson). Dyson’s latest accessory for its Supersonic Hairdryer is a finishing tool for sleek and straight blow outs. This attachment curves air (yes, you read that right) to smooth down flyaways and give your blow dry a shiny, salon-like finish.
Dr. Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Eye Cream
October is a great month to get rid of anything weighing you down, including eye bags. Dr. Barbara Sturm Super Anti-Aging Eye Cream (Dhs756, Bloomingdales) targets crow’s feet, dark shadows, fine lines, wrinkles, and puffiness around the eye area. Using powerful ingredients including anti-aging purslane, line-smoothing vitamin E, and hydrating panthenol, this eye cream gives the eye area a youthful looking appearance.
Ex Nihilo The Hedonist Eau de Parfum
The latest creation by perfumer Jordi Fernández, the Ex Nihilo The Hedonist Eau de Parfum (starting at Dhs916, Bloomingdales) contains sustainable olfactory ingredients to take you on a journey without a destination. With top notes of bergamot and ginger, heart notes of cedarwood and akigalawood, and base notes of vetiver, musks, and tonka bean, this woody scent is on our October 2021 beauty list because it’s as intoxicating as it is energising.
Charlotte Tilbury Luxury Palette of Pearls in Celestial Pearl
Pink-toned eyeshadows are trending this October and Charlotte Tilbury’s Cult Beauty exclusive, Luxury Palette of Pearls in Celestial Pearl (Dhs240, Cult Beauty), delivers with its four shimmering shades inspired by the iridescence of pearls. The sparkling, rich colours feature a blush pink, duo chrome pink-gold, bronze-brown, and pearlescent gold. We love Charlotte’s take on the pink shadow trend, and in her true fabulous fashion, she put her own desk to disco spin on it.
Benefit High Brow Duo Pencil
Highlight your brow bones with Benefit’s High Brow Duo Pencil (Dhs130, Sephora). This dual-ended matte and shimmer pencil features a smooth and blendable formula to give a natural looking boost to your brows with a shimmery pop. Available in three combinations, a linen pink light, almond cream medium, and rich caramel deep, this pencil gives the effect of brighter looking eyes and lifted arches for a youthful and polished looking beat.
Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow
For a lightweight sweep of shimmer to your lids, check out Stila’s Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow (Dhs110, Bloomingdales) in the universally flattering champagne shade Kitten. This non-tacky and non-transfer colour gives your lids a shimmery wash of colour and can be worn alone or over your favourite eyeshadow for enhanced depth. Add the Stila Shimmer & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow to your October 2021 beauty list if you love the way neutral shadow looks with a dramatic wing.
Patchology Hero Status Roll Model Moisturizing Roll-On Eye Serum
The Patchology Hero Status Roll Model Moisturizing Roll-On Eye Serum (Dhs120, Look Fantastic) uses a harmonising pink quartz rollerball to deliver hydration to the under-eye area. Packed with hyaluronic acid as well as skin-smoothing banana and mango extracts, this serum not only moisturises and plumps up the under-eye area, but also cools the skin as well.
Aveda Nutriplenish Deep Moisture Conditioner
Aveda’s new Nutriplenish Deep Moisture Conditioner (Dhs775, Bloomingdales) is a rich and moisturising vegan conditioner packed with potent plant butters as well as pomegranate and coconut oils. This moisturising hair conditioner is perfect for those with dry, textured, and thick hair. For hair in need of extra TLC, use the Nutriplenish Deep Moisture Conditioner as a leave-in conditioner for maximum hydration.
La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Cream
Cooler months call for richer moisturisers. The La Prairie Pure Gold Radiance Cream (Dhs3432, Bloomingdales) is a nourishing moisturiser infused with La Prairie’s Pure Gold Diffusion System to deeply hydrate, smooth, and even skin’s texture. This radiance-restoring cream gives skin a golden-hour like glow and can be incorporated into both morning and evening skincare routines.
Westman Atelier Eye Pods
We love a good eyeshadow set and Westman Atelier Eye Pods (Dhs401, Cult Beauty) are the hottest cream-powder hybrids dropping this month. Coming in three shade sets, these eyeshadow trios contain silky emollients to allow for flawless application and blendability. The luminous finish of these shadows provides a gorgeous sheen on the eyelids. Whether you want a subtle daytime look for your weekly workflow or build it up for a dramatic look while enjoying a night of mocktails on the Palm, these portable and magnetic eyeshadows belong in your vanity (and purse).
