What CF's Beauty Editor Is Shopping This November

Citizen Femme’s beauty editor Becki Murray rounds up the very best November beauty launches that she has been busy trying and testing this month, across make-up, fragrance and skincare.

From the viral moisturiser that has finally become available in the UK, to glow-boosting makeup essentials from Gucci and bareMinerals, these are the highly-recommended beauty treats for when the colder, darker nights roll in. Providing plenty of inspiration and ways to upgrade your beauty routine, read on to discover the best November beauty launches.


Thought Gucci's pressed bronzers couldn't get any more covetable due to their lightweight bronze-boosting prowess? Think again. The new limited edition compacts for winter feature an eye-catching art-deco inspired print that is all but irresistible for makeup magpies.


The green science behind each of Irene Forte's formulas is seriously impressive, and this rejuvenating serum is no different. Powered by 35 years of research by Dr. Francesca Ferri, the formula utilises Alpine Plant Melatonin (APM) – an ingredient that has been clinically shown to counteract the effects of UV and pollution. The result? It helps minimise fine lines and dark spots. 


This Sisley hair spray is everything traditional formulas often fail to be. It provides a lightweight style-defining hold, and has an invisible non-crispy finish that subtly adds volume and shine. Plus, its anti-frizz technology means your festive hairstyles will stay perfect for even longer.

Sisley is on a mission to transform the humble hairspray and this lightweight, shine-boosting formula will mean your festive hairstyles stay perfect for longer.


Bubbles has finally landed in the UK, and with it comes all the excitement surrounding this US-export's best-selling hydrating cream. Making light work of winter redness and dryness, the vegan, fragrance-free formula is like a trusty cuddle for your skin with soothing aloe leaf juice, avocado oil and vitamin E to deeply nourish and soften your complexion.


This is one of the most exciting new fragrance concepts to have crossed the CF beauty desk. Diem customers receive a free (+ postage) discovery set first, before choosing the scent that makes them fall in love at first sniff. The brand launches on 7 November making a lovely concept for festive gifting, and the fragrances specifically aim to evoke your happiest life moments.


Winter skin can very quickly lose its glow, just as the festive lights start coming on and party season commences. That's why we'd recommend adding bareMinerals' radiance-boosting tint to your cosmetics case now. The hydration-boosting luminous coverage gives you a flattering sun-kissed glow that still looks like you aren't wearing much makeup.


Research into the skin-gut connection is booming and You're Looking Well is a skincare and supplement regime born out of that expertise. With the understanding that a healthy gut can help soothe common skin conditions including acne, rosacea and eczema, the brand's probiotic and postbiotic-rich day and night formulas are paired with targeted supplements, all in packaging you'd happily display on your bathroom cabinet.

Subscription skincare services are on the rise to help tackle common skin concerns such as sensitivities and irritation. You’re Looking Well is the chicest option we have seen so far.


If you struggle with jet lag on your travels, or a hefty helping of insomnia especially when you are stressed, VOCĀ's aromatherapy vials are here to help. The secret weapon of many leading names that you see front row at Fashion Month, these therapeutic scents are tailored to encourage your body's natural sleep cycle, while soothing your overstimulated nervous system.


Fenty's viral cheek tint is back in stock and we'd highly recommend snapping it up before your Christmas party. The multi-use stick reacts with the pH of your skin to provide a skin tone-flattering blush for your lips and cheeks, all without an unnatural powdery or sparkly finish.


When the weather gets colder and darker there's nothing quite like a warming bath, and you can make the experience feel even more indulgent with the essential oil-rich aromas of Jurlique's Soaking Rituals. Designed to uplift and refocus your mind to fight feelings of heaviness and fatigue, they are the perfect tinctures to relax with after a busy working day.


Creed might be best-known for their moreish, statement fragrances, but this Christmas we also predict that the chic cosmetic cases are going to be just as much in demand. The Holiday Leather Collection has medium and large accessories in a selection of fawn, graphite and citrus shades, with two-way zips and a front compartment to make organising your makeup easy on your travels.
