Best New Beauty Products (November 2021)

Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of November, plus a summary of how many products and brands were reviewed and a break out of ratings! 🙂

I think it’d be fun to go through what we used, purchased, resisted, and so forth each month, here are some questions:

  1. Did anything new get added to your wish list?
  2. What release tempted you the most?
  3. Did you make any new purchases?
  4. Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own?

Please keep discussion on-topic, and if you have general feedback, a product review request, an off-topic question, or need technical support, please contact us!

Please help us streamline the comments' section and be more efficient: double-check the post above for more basic information like pricing, availability, and so on to make sure your question wasn't answered already. Comments alerting us to typos or small errors in the post are appreciated (!) but will typically be removed after errors are fixed (unless a response is needed).

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Lorac mini palette, Colourpop sidecar, Volition Winter kit bundle, Lucky Penny palette

What release tempted you the most? Lucky Penny collection!

Did you make any new purchases? Lucky Penny, Just My Luck, Replaced my 18 month old Going Coconuts palette, two Shiseido lipsticks and 25/8 Colourpop blushstix. Wow, I spent a lot of money on makeup last month!

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Nope, my stash had a lot of holes in it and now I am much happier with both my selection of neutral and colorful eyeshadows. I could use a cream peach blush but will wait until Colourpop gets my shade back in stock.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? LOL! Far too many things!

What release tempted you the most? Huda Rose Quartz Palette! Melt Amor y Mariposas palette and Colibri gel liner (which I totally forgot to order last night!).

Did you make any new purchases? Yes, Natasha Denona Retro Midi palette, Sephora Flirting Game eye liner, MAC Right Before Your Eyes Shadeshifter eyeshadow, Sydney Grace x Mel Thompson Tiny Marvels Palette. Not 100% sure if I covered everything?

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Quite often, I have been able to do so. Thank goodness, because I have spensive tastes!

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Not really! Most of the holiday releases haven’t tempted me. I am looking forward to checking out what new multichromes Clionadh comes out with though!

What release tempted you the most? Any multichromes I’ve seen released, but I am at the point where I can find close enough dupes of most.

Did you make any new purchases? The Sugardrizzle Polish Dill Pickle palette, a couple birthstone palettes from BH Cosmetics and some multichromes from Clionadh.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Is it bad that I don’t remember a lot of the new releases? Too many in a short time.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Yes, something new did get added to my wishlist and that is Lorac’s Fairytale Forest palette.

What release tempted you the most? The new Lorac collection – I thought the mini palettes were beautiful too.

Did you make any new purchases? I haven’t really made any purchases because Lorac doesn’t ship internationally and I am waiting for the palette to be available on Beauty Bay….

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I probably could dupe some of the shades, but I just like the palette overall.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Lol, I’m trying not to add anything.
What release tempted you the most? Danessa Myricks Lightwork Palette Vol III
Did you make any new purchases? Danessa Myricks Lightwork Palette Vol III
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Many things, that’s why I don’t really need to buy anything I don’t need anything.

I don’t really have anything to say regarding this topic except that there is so much that tempts me but when I have taken the time to go look at things, I am not super impressed. I have purchased quite a few lipsticks since I have gone back to my makeup collection and believe me, I didn’t need any lipsticks. I have just been super attracted to deep red lips and want to purchase them all. It is not a hole in my collection so ….Chanel Pirate might be my next purchase!!

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I’d guess about 20 things lol
What release tempted you the most? Huda Rose Quartz palette! And the Melt Concha gel pigment! Also all the duochrome/multichrome palettes from so many indie brands!
Did you make any new purchases? So many lol. My MBA Cosmetics shadows and Devinah shadows have already arrived!
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I decided what I had was okay to not get the Melt Concha item. Huda Rose Quartz I think just in general I have the shades duped in my collection with my singles.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? The Kayali Eden Juicy Apple | 01 Eau De Parfum sounds devine. I want to get a small size and try it.

What release tempted you the most? ColourPop TNBC (I bought it)

Did you make any new purchases? Lots — I hit the big Black Friday sales. Now I need to go on a low buy for a while. I finally got the Fenty Chillz Killowatt HL, and the Snap Shadow in Cadet. I got quite a bit of stuff from BH Cosmetics, Spoiled Lips Cosmetics, Dreaming Tree Workshop, ColourPop, and some stuff from Urban Decay.

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Not on purpose

Did anything new get added to your wish list? I add to it many times every week, it seems. So yes, but I can’t recall what I added except for Chanel Pirate. Do I need it? Absolutely not, but I want is so much!
What release tempted you the most? Obviously Chanel Pirate lipstick. 🙂
Did you make any new purchases? Yes I did. I’ve got some of them and others are on their way here.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Yes, some lipsticks and it seems MAC Quarry is a winning little eyeshadow as it is a dupe for at least two eyeshadows I liked. It is also one of my most used eyeshadows along with MAC Malt.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Nothing interests me lately. After Black Friday I have everything I put on a list which wasn’t long any way!

What release tempted you the most? Pat McGrath Black Friday sale!

Did you make any new purchases? PML Huetopian Dreams and Divine Rose

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I haven’t duped anything in awhile
