With so many new beauty products launching every week, it can be hard to keep up – especially when it comes to deciding which ones are *actually* worth a purchase. For that reason, Savoir Flair has tried and tested the best new product launches of the month and created a list of our top picks. Follow along for our absolute favorites, and then shop them all below.
Gucci Beauty has finally dropped a concealer, arriving in 40 different shades and a lightweight yet buildable formula. Concentré de Beauté Concealer comes in the most stunning packaging and offers three undertones to choose from – cool, neutral, or warm. Easily applied in combination with your other makeup products in your routine, the concealer is perfect for quick touch-ups, too.
Asteri, the Saudi-based beauty brand making incredible cosmetics specifically for women in the Middle East, is back again with its second drop. It launched earlier in 2023 with an ostentatious offering: a full range of makeup that’s clean, cruelty-free, and targeted to combat the humid weather of the region. It won fans instantly, including the Savoir Flair editorial team. With its new drop, the range expands to include pocket-sized highlighter, blush, and contour sticks, two new eyeshadow palettes, full and half lashes, setting powder, and more. Out of everything we tried, our favorite item was the highlighter stick. It imparts a realistic, dewy glow that blends beautifully (instead of leaving that dreaded highlighter stripe on your face). It’s also the perfect size for stashing in a bag and taking on the go for a quick update during a night out
Ojar, founded by Omani entrepreneur Sheikha Hind Bahwan, never fails to wow us with its intense and beautiful fragrances. For December, it launched the intoxicating Encens Cuivre fragrance, spun around the sharp top notes of elemi and rosewood, spicy middle notes of myrrh and frankincense, and dry down notes of musk and vanilla. It is a wonderful blend of the unexpected:; sweet, spicy, citrusy. Our favorite aspect of the fragrance is its strong silage, making it a surefire favorite of women in the region who prefer for their fragrances to last.
In time for the holidays, Benefit Cosmetics launched a range of holiday sets that are perfect for gifting others (or yourself!). Still available to shop on Sephora, our favorite kit was the Naughty List Lash, a grab bag of the brand’s best mascara, including full-sized versions of its beststelling BADgal BANG! And a mini Fan Fest that’s perfect for stashing in a travel kit. Get all the benefits of Benefit’s amazing mascaras at a fraction of the price. What’s not to love?
