La crème de la crème: the beauty editor shares its favorite October products

La crème de la crème: the beauty editor shares its favorite October products

From ultra-comforting lip balm to extreme volume mascara and honey-textured hair care… Here are the products that Madmoizelle beauty journalists tested and liked this month.

As beauty editors, we are lucky enough to be able to test many new products, but also to rediscover classics that have marked the history of cosmetics. Over the ports and press launches, we sometimes unearth real nuggets. It would be a shame not to tell you about it! Here is an anthology of all the beauty products and accessories that we have tested and liked over the past thirty days.

Barbara’s Beauty Favorites

Indie Lee Alternative Retinol Cream


Alternative Retinol Cream — Indie Lee — €77 for 45ml

If like me, your skin overreacts when you apply retinolknow that there is a substitute, rambutan, whose anti-aging properties are similar. One of the best surprises of the year, in my opinion, was this cream formulated by the Indie Lee brand, gentle on the skin, but tough when it comes to fighting the appearance of wrinkles and improve skin elasticity. A small nugget with a creamy and pleasant texture, ideal for all skin types.

Rare Beauty Kind Words Lip Pencil


Kind Words Lip Pencil — Rare Beauty — 17

Right now, I hardly wear lipstick anymore. A little pencil to highlight the contour of my mouth, a very shiny gloss and I consider this part of my face made up. But I don’t choose my lip pencil at random. According to me, it must be both pigmented, slightly creamy but not too creamy, comfortable to wear and above all waterproof (so that he doesn’t drool at the slightest opportunity). And after some fruitless searching, I came across Rare Beauty’s Kind Words pencil. The latter literally ticks all the boxes and is available in ten different shades to match all skin tones and tastes.

Benefits Brow Setter 24h Eyebrow Setting Gel


Brow Setter 24-hour fixing eyebrow gel — Benefit — €29.90 for 7 ml

The difficulty with eyebrow gels is that they always end up crumbling and leaving behind deposits in the hairs. With Benefit’s 24h Brow Setter, that’s not likely to happen. And for good reason, the gel is flexible, dries quickly and leaves the eyebrows perfectly set for a whole day. A revolution in my beauty routine.

Ilia Lip Wrap Lip Balm


Lip Wrap Balm — Ilia — €26 for 7 ml

When it’s cold (which it’s not right now), my lips get chapped very quickly. To provide them with deep care, I apply Ilia’s Lip Wrap balm every evening. Hyper rich in hyaluronic acid, squalane and ceramideshe comes to bring hydration, nutrition and comfort to this area who often needs it. Shiny, but not sticky, it plumps lips all day long. And its format allows it to be carried anywhere, even when carrying a mini size bag.

Gisou Honey Infused Hair Oil


Honey Infused Hair Oil — Gisou —€22 for 20ml

I have no patience with my hair. When it comes to taking care of it, I need a product that is effective, multifunctional and easy to apply at the same time. I really liked the Honey Infused Hair Oil by Gisou, the brand of influencer Negin Mirsalehi. Rich without leaving a greasy finish, this oil can be used as a mask, as a treatment or as a post-styling oil. A true 3-in-1 product that suits my needs perfectly.

Virginie’s Beauty Favorites

MAC Stack Mega Brush Volume & Length Mascara


Length and volume mascara Stack Mega Brush — MAC — 35 €

It’s been a long time since I’ve enjoyed a new mascara so much! Thanks to its longer than average brush, the MAC Stick Mega Brush grabs all the lashes and gives them volume and length from the first pass for an intense makeup effect. Depending on my desires, I apply between one and three coats, and the result is always impeccable, and above all without clumps !

La Roche-Posay Effaclar AI targeted anti-blemish treatment


Effaclar AI targeted local blemish corrector — La Roche-Posay — €9.10 for 15 ml

Thanks (no) to my acne-prone skin, I tested some anti-blemish care ! This one, signed La Roche-Posay, is my latest favourite. It’s very simple, I think this is the first time I have tested a product so gentle on the skin that is so effective on small pimples ! With it, there is no risk of ending up with redness and irritation, it treats lesions gently, in a benevolent education way.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Cream Blush Stick


Blush stick — Anastasia Beverly Hills — €35 for 8 g

Since last summer, I only use cream blushes to restore color to my overcooked endive complexion. This one by Anastasia Beverly Hills, in stick form, is really my favorite: the colors are beautiful, the formula is pigmented while working very easily, and it stays on the skin for a long time. Last good point: its packaging with integrated brush makes it an ideal product for the toilet bag.

Soothing Milky Pink Mask by La Canopée


Soothing milky rose mask — La Canopée — €28 for 50 ml

With the change of season (and the temperatures which do as they please), my skin began to feel tight and lacking in comfort. Fortunately, I was able to count on this marvelous La Canopée mask! In addition to cotton candy smelling divinely good, its creamy texture and its 100% natural origin formula based on rose, marshmallow and oats have done my face a lot of good.. It is certain, this product will accompany me all this autumn-winter!
