Fall is here and we all know what that means; (sadly) summer is over. While this may sound heartbreaking at first, don’t worry just yet. Take the changing of the seasons as a chance to indulge and try out a new product or two! I mean who doesn’t love having an excuse for adding to their beauty collection? To start you off, we’ve rounded up the top five must-haves for this Fall.
1) St. Ives Energizing Face Mist
I don’t know about you, but when it comes to skincare, hydration is the name of the game for me. I can guarantee you that with one spritz of the St. Ives Face Mist, you will feel hydrated and refreshed.
With the seasons changing and the temperature cooling down, skin can tend to appear dull, tired, and weathered. The zingy orange scent of this spray will wake your skin right up! Say goodbye to groggy mornings, and hello to a bright, glowing complexion.
This mist can be used before or after makeup application to lock in your look for the whole day. Personally, I like to spritz my face when I wake up, then apply my cream moisturizer over to rub in the spray, as well as achieve radiant and awakened skin.
If orange isn’t your favorite scent, don’t fret! St. Ives also carries this mist in lavender and grapefruit. It retails for $5.99 and can be found here.
2) Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink Liquid Lipstick
Whether you are spending the night out on the town or drinking a pumpkin spice latte, this lipstick is an essential. It will last the whole night without a single budge!
This lipstick goes on liquid and dries down to a beautiful, soft matte. The unique applicator wand is shaped like an arrow for precise and exact application.
The SuperStay Matte Ink Lipstick comes in thirty (that’s right, thirty!) highly pigmented shades. Deep purple, plum, and maroon are SO in this fall and with such a large shade range, you are bound to find a hue that is perfect for you and your skin tone.
Go out and make a statement with this season with this lovely liquid to matte! You can find it in stores for $9.49 or shop it online, here.
***Pro Tip: For easy removal after wearing this lipstick, use an oil-based makeup remover. Shake well and pour onto a cotton pad. Gently swipe over lips for a mess-free removal.
3) Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel
Ladies and gents, your nail polish game is about to change forever. Once you use Avon Gel Finish, you will never go back.
Say goodbye to ruining your nails from salon gel-manicures, and hello to healthy, professional looking nails. Plus, this is a great way to save a bit of coin, as this polish retails for about a third of the price of a salon appointment.
The flat applicator brush makes painting on this polish easy, even, and quick. Avon Gel Finish dries shiny and doesn’t even require a top coat! This long-lasting gel-like mani comes in over twenty eye-catching shades.
For Fall try shades Glimmer (pictured), Purplelicious, Teal Me About It, Terracotta, or Very Berry. You can shop this amazing 7-in-1 polish on www.avon.com.

4) OGX Bodifying + Fiber Full Sugar High Tousle Spray
If you haven’t jumped on the trend of voluminous, effortless, care-free hair, jump on board. Whether you are planning to spend the day at the apple orchard, tailgating before watching your favorite team play, or maybe even just curled up on the couch with your S.O. watching scary movies, this sugar spray will give you the hair of your dreams.
Infused with bamboo fibers and sugar cane extract, the OGX Tousle Spray will give your hair body and a wavy, playful texture. Achieve that “lived-in” look without drying out your hair.
Also use this bodifying spray to separate your curls and lock them in place. OGX will leave your hair with a picture-perfect shine as well as an irresistible scent. I’m not kidding, this stuff smells just like freshly baked snickerdoodles!
You can find the OGX Bodifying + Fiber Full Sugar High Tousle Spray at Ulta, retailing for $8.99.
5) Too Faced Hot Buttered Rum Palette
Last but not least, I couldn’t resist including this scrumptious Too Faced eyeshadow palette. I mean with a name like Hot Buttered Rum and those rich fall shades, who could resist?
This paraben, cruelty, and gluten-free palette contains eight highly pigmented, butter-smooth shadows. There are four matte shades and four shimmer shades for making the perfect fall eye look.
When applying, I find it best to use an eyeshadow primer first. Then, using a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply a matte shade to your lid. To finish it off, use your finger to lightly tap into a shimmer shade, and apply over the matte. Easy as (pumpkin) pie, right?
Being a mini palette, Hot Buttered Rum is great for traveling or bringing with if you’re on the go. However this palette is limited edition, so make sure you get your hands on it before it’s gone. You can find it here, retailing for $25.00.
