Although the spooky season is filled with thrills and infinite Halloweeny parties, for beauty junkies it means another round of stockpiling (sorry, not sorry). With the new month embracing us, it marks the countdown to the holiday season. Well, in other words, more excuses to splurge on the new releases to help you settle down for autumn. For this month, you can expect to be surprised with collaborations from your favourite K-Pop band (psst, it’s BTS), a cinnamon-inspired body cream, and newly reformulated products. So, trick or treat yo’self with these best October beauty launches.
