#HauteList: The Best Beauty Launches Of October 2017
There’s never a dull day in Beautyville. There are tons of products hitting the shopping aisles Every. Single. Day. Products that promise nothing but the best, begging you to upgrade your beauty game.
While a true-blue beauty junkie will swear that it takes nerves of steel to not wilfully go bankrupt, one has to ask the pertinent question: are these products worth the hype? That’s where we come in.
In our monthly Best of Beauty series, we go through the process of rounding up some of the best new releases in skincare, haircare, makeup, the works. We sift through the gimmicks and tall claims, and present to you products that definitely live up to the hype.
Winter is here, which means it’s that time of the year when your skin gets dry and flaky, especially your hands, feet, and lips.
If you’re one to keep your lips constantly hydrated, no matter what the weather, then you’re going to totally love this. Giving you a little extra nourishment during the season is Clinique’s lip mask, that basically restores the moisture that your lips require to stay plump and beautiful!
This little tube of goodness acts as a great overnight treatment or even as a nourishing primer prior to your lipstick application.
2. Matrix Style Link Heat Buffer (Rs 550)*
Heat protecting sprays might seem quite pointless for someone who doesn’t style their hair that often, but trust us when we say that it suited for anyone who likes to give those hairstyling tools a whirl.
By coating your follicles, the product protects them from getting fried or burnt thanks to a blowdryer, straightener, or even your curling tongs — basically anything that emits heat.
The Matrix Link Heat Buffer also doubles up as a hairspray that adds shine and sheen to your luscious locks and keeps that softness intact through the evening.
*Available at Matrix counters across the country.
Coloured liners are a great way to amp up those boring eyes, this season. Why stick to a black, when you can add a hint of colour to your eyes, right?
Plum’s Kohl Kajal is out with a new shade that’s fun, funky, and festive, perfect for the celebratory season. Either line your waterline with this bright colour and make them shine and shimmer, or simply double up and create a two-toned wing — if you’d like to experiment a little, of course.
The new installment in the family of makeup brushes, ‘the oval’ is the current way to apply your makeup. The Nykaa BlendMaster brushes are super soft and have an almost microfiber-esque feel to them, leaving your makeup application seamless.
By buffing in the product effortlessly, the BlendMaster Oval Brushes help you achieve a super smooth and even surface.
Comprising 10 brushes suited for various makeup needs, if you’re a makeup lover, Nykaa’s new addition should be on your wishlist RN.
Bobbi Brown’s latest concealer is apparently ‘better than sleep’ — which means it’s so good it lets you fake that beauty sleep. The concentrated formula uses a Triple Matrix Technology, which basically provides a full-coverage, while being lightweight on the skin.
Infused with Rare Indian Tree Extract and Palm Kernel Extract, once applied the product instantly plumps under the eyes and reduces the signs of ageing (over a period of time).
