October’s latest beauty drops from skincare to makeup and fragrance, to add to the top of your wish list.
Whether your current skincare regime isn’t tackling the dreaded Maskne, your fragrance shelf is looking a little lacklustre, or your go-to foundation suddenly feels too heavy, we’ve got the solution. Here are October’s latest beauty drops to know about.
Parisian newcomers Typology have gained a following with their cruelty-free and stripped back formulas and now their new TEINT, a tinted serum, is their first foray into skincare/make up hybrids. Available in six universally flattering shades, it offers light coverage cleverly smoothing texture whilst allowing the natural beauty of skin to shine through (hello freckles!) in order to master the 'no make-up' glow. Skin is actively treating with vitamin C, aloe vera and squalane for radiance and hydration too.
Jo Malone's Fig and Lotus Flower is inspired by the Hanging Garden of Babylon, encapsulated in a light ethereal scent. With top notes of fig leaf for green freshness, heart notes of Lotus for light florals and an earthy vetiver base it is an enchanting fragrance. Spritz liberally to enter the fabled gardens.

Perfect for injecting some vigour into dark mornings as we rumble on into autumn.
Victoria Beckham nostalgically harks back to her Spice Girls days with her first ever lipstick collection, ‘Posh’. Enriched with a multitude of plant-based oils (coconut, avocado and jojoba) to nourish and plump, the 9 shades leave a opaque swish of colour in hues reminiscent of her 90s heyday: think cocoa browns, peachy nudes and a juicy berry ready to spice up your make up bag.
The king of the inuendo laden fragrance, Tom Ford is back with a playful new scent- Bitter Peach. It's a sumptuous cocophany of peche de vigne, blood orange, jasmine sambac, creamy tonka and vanilla to encapsulate the first bite into the voluptuous fruit. An addictive and an unexpected new favourite, the bottle will also take pride of place in your cabinet.
The hotly anticipated first make up collection from Byredo has launched with the expertise of cool make up artist Isamaya Ffrench. The Colour Stick is any easy to apply, super-versatile cream to be used as you wish: on eyelids, cheeks and lips. Blendable and buildable, the shade La Scéne is a warm metallic bronze. Chicly housed in a silver metal bullet, the designs have garnered as much attention as the products themselves, and are perfect for touch ups as the day turns into night.
La Prairie have unveiled their latest pioneering serum and it's just as luxe as you'd expect. Imbued with Caviar Premier for lift and Caviar Absolute for volume, it is the first time these two potent caviar technologies have been used in tandem. The silky formula seamlessly sinks into the skin, tensing the skin for immediate lift that's visible within 15 minutes. Continued use also improves elasticity, firmless and fine lines and wrinkles are drastically reduced.

Adding to Chanel’s six product strong The Cleasing Collection, come three new products including this anti-pollution exfoliating gel. Infused with jojoba beads this luscious gel-cream sweeps impurities from pores and gently buffs skin to refine the skin’s texture and reveal radiance. Upon massaging into dampened skin, the microbeads melt into the jellified texture, signalling that cleansing is complete- very clever indeed.
Combat the skincare concern we never would have imagined in 2020 – maskne – with this hard-working moisturising gel by Murad. Working to balance the skin’s microbiome (the healthy bacteria that live on the skin), it includes salicylic acid to get to work on breakouts, Korean red pine extract to prevent imbalance that leaves skin prone to imperfections, and is packed with hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture.
This cooling hydro-gel mask refreshes under-eyes whilst protecting against natural aggressors and blue light damage from mindless Instagram scrolling.

Containing a cocktail of hard-hitting ingredients including Hyaluronic Acid Complex (a whopping 5 acids in one) cotton stem cells to fight pollution and licorice root extract for anti-inflammatory properties. Pop in the fridge to enhance the cooling action.
