Here at Allure, we love makeup. Like, really really love makeup. We could talk liquid liner, highlighter, and foundation all damn day (and we often do). After all, it is our job and not one we take lightly. We eagerly pore over every new launch, every emerging brand, and have an encyclopedia of dupes in our brains at all times. While we're all partial to our particular faves, our heart rates spike with each exciting makeup release. Who knows, maybe there will be some newfangled primer that actually works for our finicky skin type or an innovative mascara that truly checks off every box on our criteria. That's the exciting part about the ever-expanding beauty market: finding new makeup treasures to further complete our artistic visions of becoming ourselves. Check out all the new makeup launches that we're currently drooling over. (And don't forget to check out the new skin-care launches too.)

Origins Blooming Sheer Lip Balm
Origins' return to makeup has blessed us with a bevy of juicy lip colors in sheer and cream finishes. The pigments are actually derived from the flowers used in perfume that are discarded once their natural fragrance has been extracted, making them sustainable colors as well. One good tip is that the palest shade of the sheer balms, Nude Nectar, doubles as a glitter-free highlighter that gives you that amazing glazed donut finish with just the teensiest hint of shimmer.

M.A.C. Powder Kiss Lipstick
M.A.C. already makes some of the most beloved matte lipsticks around, but now the formula is updated to look more velvety and feel airier. Swipe once for a tint and build it up for a more vivid effect. Either way, these lipsticks give you that blotted lip stain look that I'm all about.

Natasha Denona Gold Palette
Sure, it may be expensive, but a Natasha Denona palette is the kind of thing that inspires heavy breathing and hot flashes once you see the swatches. Maybe it's the soft-as-butter powder shadow formula or the fact that its texture is married with the most velvety-looking mattes and the blingy-est metallics in this gold palette, and that's how you get people to hand over $145 for 15 eye shadows. This drops October 2 on Natashadenona.com and Sephora.com (and October 10 in select Sephora stores).

The Lip Bar Liquid Lipstick in Brickhouse
I stan a warm, brick-y red lip color. I think it looks great on everyone and depending on how sheer you wear it, it can almost be a nude (well, maybe a neutral), depending on your skin tone. Considering that The Lip Bar is a brand whose DNA involves inclusivity for all skin tones, you can be confident that this shade was tested and approved to look amazing on everyone before launching.

Pat McGrath Tinted Lip Fetish Balm
It's not just a tinted balm — trust me on this one. It's much more saturated than a tint but instead of that glazed look you get with lots of balms, the finish is more akin to MLBB so the color has a sort of the call is coming from inside the house vibe (in the best way, I promise).
