While PSL may be a polarizing flavour at the coffee shop, one thing is for certain: pumpkin in beauty products is always a hit. An earthy orange hue is a classic autumn shade while pumpkin scented products will leave you feeling warm and cosy. Below are some of our pumpkin-themed beauty products this fall. —Vicki Duong
lush cosmetics. It wouldn’t be spooky season without a new collection of seasonal bath bombs from Lush. The limited-edition Punkin Pumpkin ($7) features a smiling jack-o-lantern, perfect for carving (pun intended) a little me-time. We love the gorgeous orange and yellow swirls it leaves in our bath while pumpkin powder keeps your skin soft and cinnamon oil awaken your senses.
eos. Keep your lips hydrated as temps begin to drop with EOS iconic lip balms ($6). This fall we’re reaching for the whipped pumpkin latte scent. While the formula soothes dry and cracked lips notes of cream, pumpkin spice, espresso and cinnamon have us in an autumn state of mind.
buxom. Chocolate brown seems to be the it-colour of the season however a brown lip can be intimidating after months of wearing masks. That’s why we’re opting for Buxom’s Pippa Pumpkin ($28), a sheer shade of orange-brown gloss with gold flecks that add a juicy look to your lips on its own or can be layered effortlessly over your fave lipsticks.
e.l.f. cosmetics. When it comes to eyeshadow, we’ve been opting for simpler palettes that are foolproof and budget-friendly. The e.l.f. cosmetics Bite-Size Shadow ($3) has become a makeup bag must-have since its release due to the ultra-pigmented and blendable eyeshadows in the perfect compact for less than a PSL would cost you! The Pumpkin Pie colourway is our fave because of its versatility in being a warm-toned neutral palette that we’ll be reaching for even after fall has come and gone.
peter thomas roth. Did you know that pumpkin is also good for your skin? Pumpkin enzymes that is! This mask from Peter Thomas Roth ($79) helps to gently exfoliate your skin with pumpkin enzyme while the addition of AHA gently adds a chemical peel to your skincare routine. We love this lightly scented mask that multitasks to reveal smoother and younger-looking skin with every use.
