Best New Beauty Products (October 2021)

Here’s a look at the top 25 products reviewed in the month of October, 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?

Comments that do not adhere to our comment policy may be removed. Discussion and debate are highly encouraged but we expect community members to participate respectfully. 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? Several palettes… not that I need any more, lol.

What release tempted you the most? The Oden’s Eye collab with Annette’s Makeup Corner, the Wolves palette.

Did you make any new purchases? A couple CP palettes, the SugarDrizzle Polish Dill Pickle palette… I think that’s it?

Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I definitely have all the shades from the Wolves palette, especially now that I have Terra Moons The Cosmos.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? A lot of the eyeshadow palettes you showed recently – the LORAC ones, I think, and probably a few others but I don’t want to go looking for their names (I’m trying to keep my desire for them at bay and seeing them again….well, not good for what little self control I have)
What release tempted you the most? That one from LORAC…oh goodness!
Did you make any new purchases? The CT The Rebel palette, a GloWish blush from Huda and a few other things I picked up at Winners/Marshalls
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? Can’t even recall but I’ve got so much stuff I can probably dupe just about everything I like (but that doesn’t stop me from wanting it/them).

The only thing on my wish list that I ended up purchasing in the Pat McGrath sale was the Huetopian palette in a set for 30% off .. I previously purchased the Holiday palette.
I really have just been picking up staple items needed that I am finding tremendous discounts on like concealer, powders, mascara, liners.. Belk had a buy 1 get 2 free Lancome sale. I am trying to check out the individual sales instead of relying on the big box stores..
Bergdorf Goodman just had a sale on some high end make up… I didn’t buy anything however at this point I just honestly refuse to pay full price for anything.

Did anything new get added to your wish list? Yes, quite a few products got onto my wishlist.
What release tempted you the most? Lorac’s new Holiday palette, the Fairy tale one and I quite like that little Nars palette you just reviewed too.
Did you make any new purchases? Yes I have. I have ordered By Terry’s Bonjour Paris 9 pan palette and Lorac’s Soleil palette because I love the shimmer shades.
Or successfully dupe a new product with something you already own? I do try and dupe all the eyeshadows with what I have, but I am heading for a major decluttering of older palettes, so some of those dupes may not apply now.
