A cool chill in the air, pumpkin spice lattes, Halloween … There are plenty of reasons we look forward to October each year. Even better: this October there are some truly amazing new and limited edition beauty products available.
If you're looking to perfect your cat eye, become a nail art master, or do your part during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, these beauty products have got you covered. Scroll down to check out our roundup of the top beauty buys that just dropped this month.
Add Some Sparkle
Ciate takes the cake when it comes to inventive manicures. After all, they did create the caviar and the velvet mani. This month, Ciate is back with a brand new nail kit. It's the sequin manicure, $15, and we are in love. Available in three different versions -- Harlequin (multi-colored), Tutu (pink, red, and champagne) and Super Duper (black, silver, and gold) -- these sequins have just the right amount of sparkle, making them perfect for the upcoming holiday season. The only problem will be deciding which version to choose.
Creating an amazing cat eye isn't the easiest skill to master. Besides a great eyeliner, you need a steady hand (and lots of patience) to get that iconic look. Luckily, it just got easier with The Colossal Cat Eyes Volum' Express Mascara, $7.47, from Maybelline New York. With a claw brush and a collagen-infused formula, it coats and separates your lashes while extending them outward. This means that next time you can skip the eyeliner and apply a few coats of this new mascara to recreate that feline vibe.
When it comes to great hair tools, Sultra knows a thing or two. We're already huge fans of their curved flat irons and rod curling irons, especially the Bombshell Cone, $130. This month signals Sultra's latest release, the Temptress Power Dryer, $195.
Just what makes this hair dryer so special? It uses an advanced drying system that produces tons of infrared rays and negative ions -- great for drying your hair in lightning speed while defending it against heat damage at the same time. Sounds like a win-win to us.
Nail art is about to get a lot easier. Revlon has just released a line of Nail Art Stencils, $4.50 each, with designs perfect for Halloween. This Sweetly Sinister collection features spiders, skulls, stars, and even funny little moustaches. All you have to do is stick one of the stencils onto your nail (bare or with dry enamel), then paint over it with polish. Once dry, simply peel off the stencil, leaving behind your own tiny masterpiece. Now you have to decide: Sinister or sweet?
