Editor’s Picks: 13 of the Best New Makeup Products at Sephora Right Now

They're worthy of a spot in your makeup bag.

In case you didn't know, fall is THE time for beauty companies to bring out their most important—and most gorgeous—product launches of the year. 

Talk about exciting!

Now that we've gushed over the best lipstick colours this season (which required an entire blog post, there are so many good ones), let me introduce you to all the other new makeup you need to know about:

The best new makeup products for fall and winter.

Drooling already? These new favourites are not only pretty to look at, but they also make total sense for the cooler months. Think: primer that hydrates your skin; shadows that smoulder for evening; and foundations and blushes in luscious, creamy textures.

Everything here is available at Sephora, and just a reminder that Canadians get:

  • FREE shipping on orders of C$50 and over
  • FREE returns
  • Faster shipping
  • No duties

Here are my best makeup suggestions for fall and winter:

Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer

Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer

I love that the Marc Jacobs Beauty Under(cover) Perfecting Coconut Face Primer feels like a lightweight moisturizer, instead of the weird synthetic slippery texture you get with most primers. Made with real coconut extracts that form a vitamin-rich barrier on the skin's surface, it will help makeup to go on smoother and last longer. If you get dry skin when the temperature drops, then this would be a great hydrating step under your makeup, in addition to your regular skincare products.

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation

Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation in 117 = Y225

I'm super-impressed with the new Make Up For Ever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Stick Foundation, which is the brand's recently revamped HD formula, available for the first time in a stick format. The convenience aspect is so great, and there are 15 shades, so you're sure to find your perfect match (mine is 117 = Y225, a.k.a. Marble). But most of all, I can't get over the texture. It's SO seamless and just looks like your skin! This would be ideal for normal-to-dry skin, as it contains timed-release hyaluronic acid spheres for extra hydration.

Dior Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Conceal

Dior Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Conceal in Light, Medium and Dark

Dior Fix It 2-In-1 Prime & Conceal is a fab concealer and primer in one! I like it best around the eyes, for both covering dark circles and priming the lids for shadow application. You can do the same over the lips to prep for lipstick, or use it to camouflage any area of darkness/redness. There are three shades; the texture is just right (not too dry, nor too greasy) and it blends out beautifully.

NARS Velvet Shadow Stick

NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks in Hollywoodland, Goddess, Oaxaca, Aigle Noir, Sukhothai and Flibuste

I'm a huge fan of cream eyeshadows, especially when they come in portable sticks, so the NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks are right up my alley. They're incredibly easy to swipe on and blend out as much or as little as you like, and will not crease, smear or fade throughout the day—hooray! I adore Goddess (pink champagne) for an easy daytime eye and Sukhothai (shimmering peacock) for a smoky autumn evening look.

Make Up For Ever Artist Liner

Make Up For Ever Artist Liners in Matte Majorelle Blue M-24, Metallic Bronze ME-70 and Iridescent Pop Green I-32

A swipe of colourful eyeliner is such a fun way to update your makeup look, and I can't think of a better product to use than the new Make Up For Ever Artist Liners. There are 15 bold shades, and they wear really well without smudging (in fact, they take a bit of dedication to get off!). These jewel tones are ideal for fall and holiday season, especially Metallic Bronze ME-70. Unlike most gold liners, it's actually dark enough to nicely define your eyes.

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette Metal Clash

Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette Metal Clash

Now is the time to invest in a dramatic shimmering shadow palette, and the Yves Saint Laurent Couture Palette Metal Clash is this season's top choice. The packaging is to die for, and the colours are actually more versatile than you'd think! Each shade could be worn on its own, or you could do any combination for a smokier look. My faves are the gold, which is absolutely stunning all over the lids for a dash of evening sparkle, and the burgundy, which is so unusual and very on trend right now.

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara

Stila Huge Extreme Lash Mascara offers pretty much everything you'd want in a mascara—if you like a thick fringe of lashes, that is! What I like about this formula is that it grabs and coats every single hair to bulk it up—hence the semi-chunky effect that we've seen all over the runways. However, it is not actually clumpy; I would describe it as both volumizing and defining. It's also super-black, which I love.

Where to buy: Sephora

Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse

Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse in 02 Light Brown

Clinique Just Browsing Brush-On Styling Mousse is one of the latest brow-building mascaras, a new makeup category that I'm pretty much obsessed with. Why? Because they bulk up your brows and hold them in place, but look much more natural than pencils and powders. This particular formula gives your brows a great fuller look, without feeling crunchy. I'm wearing 02 Light Brown here, but there are three other shades (01 Blonde would probably be even better for me).

Dior Diorblush Cheek Stick

Dior Diorblush Cheek Sticks in Cosmopolite Coral 675, Cosmpolite Rosewood 765 and Cosmpolite Pink 845

Attention, cream blush fans! The new Dior Diorblush Cheek Sticks are going to steal your heart. They describe the texture as "powdery cream," but I honestly find the finish extremely seamless, like a flush from within, and not powdery at all. There are three richly pigmented shades, which I think can work for all skin tones depending on how bold or blended out you want to go. Cosmopolite Coral 675 is probably my favourite!

Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder

Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder in 2 Douce Croisière

If you're the kind of person who likes a little colour in the cooler months, then I present you Givenchy Poudre Bonne Mine Healthy Glow Powder. Unlike most bronzers, which I find way too muddy/dark/sparkly, this one gives you the most natural-looking, luminous dose of colour—in other words, a "healthy glow," just like it promises. The baked gel formula is talc-free and comes in four soft shades.

Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer

Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer in Park Ave Princess

Tarte The Sculptor Contouring Face Slenderizer is a goof-proof way to contour. I don't think it's necessary to invest in a multi-shade contouring palette, which can be too time-consuming to apply and leaves people looking too heavy and powdery. This creamy crayon just swipes on and blends out, and comes in three shades (Park Ave Princess is the lightest). Sometimes foundation leaves your face looking a bit flat, so this would be a great product to add back subtle definition. 

Where to buy: Sephora

Guerlain Météorites Voyage Enchanté

Guerlain Météorites Voyage Enchanté

OMG, Guerlain Météorites Voyage Enchanté is too pretty! But actually, it's also practical, because it is a translucent powder in a portable compact for touch-ups on the go. I really had to build it up to even get it to show up in the photo, so rest assured that it should work on all skin tones. The finish is "luminous matte"—so it gets rid of shine, but doesn't leave your face looking powdery or dry.

Where to buy: Sephora

Hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection

Hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection

If your makeup brushes could use a fall update, look no further than the Hakuho-do + Sephora Pro Brush Collection. Hakuho-do brushes are hand-made in Japan using a 200-year-old manufacturing technique, so the quality here is outstanding. The synthetic bristles (atop cheery red handles!) are actually more hygienic than natural hair, but feel incredibly fluffy and soft. There are five types to choose from, including brushes for powder, highlighter, blush and concealer.
