Here’s what’s new and noteworthy.
You can always count on the fall season to come in hot with awesome new beauty launches, and the month of November will not disappoint. From hydrocolloid patches to help you fight that dreaded maskne while also protecting your skin’s barrier, to a multitasking face mask to utilize during stay-at-home orders, here are all the new beauty launches hitting shelves in November that caught our attention:
19/99 Beauty Colour Kit One
What you need to know: Easy-breezy makeup lovers, listen up. 19/99 Beauty is all about high-performance, multi-purpose staples for all ages to experiment with, and this month the Canadian brand has released a chic reusable paper case filled with three of its signature Precision Colour Pencil that can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks: There’s Barna, a warm-chocolate brown; Lustro, a satin-pearl champagne; and Voros, a vivid, true red shade. The pencil kit also also comes with one of 19/99’s tapered makeup brushes to buff and blend your colours as well as its go-to sharpener.

L’Oréal Paris Revitalift LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum
What you need to know: You’ve no doubt heard the hype around retinol, a powerful vitamin A derivative known to rev-up collagen production and normalize cell turnover, among other things, which help keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay. This month, Beauty giant L’Oréal Paris has introduced its highest concentration of the derm-approved ingredient into its new Revitalift Revitalift LZR 0.3% Pure Retinol Night Serum, a bedtime elixir that also combines glycerin, nourishing oils and hyaluronic acid, to penetrate deep down into the skin’s epidermal layer to reduce deep creases.
Where to get it: Available now at lorealparis.ca.
L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod 3.0
What you need to know: When silky, straight hair is your end goal, nothing beats a good flat iron. The trick is finding one that won’t wreak havoc on your strands. Cue: L’Oréal Professionnel Steampod 3.0. The steam-enhanced hot tool has been completely revamped (it has over 30 patents and counting) to straighten hair at twice the speed then previous models with 78 percent less damage compared to a traditional flat iron. Integrated watertank technology also boasts heat protection by injecting much-needed moisture into hair fibres with each pass through your mane, which means softer, shinier results. Plus, when you’re in the mood for some volume and bounce, a handy rotating cord makes adding curls and waves to hair much easier.
Where to get it: Available now at L’Oréal Professionnel salons.
Céla Crème Violette
What you need to know: With ramped up hand washing during this Covid era — not to mention November’s dropping temperatures — an effective, hydrating hand cream is a must-own this season. Born out of Toronto’s Hammam Spa, Céla skincare is known for its plant-powered formulas that bring a sense of pampering directly to your doorstep, and its new Crème Violette doesn’t disappoint: An aromatherapeutic blend of lavender and colloidal oatmeal sooth tight, dry skin while the pleasant scent instantly sparks a relaxing mood. Bonus: It doubles as a body cream, too.

S’AÏMME Cosmétiques Beauté Hydrating Cleansing Mask
What you need to know: When it comes to skincare routines, there’s no step quite like a face mask to invite some much-needed “me time” into your day or night — especially one that’s multi-use. Quebec-based S’AÏMME Cosmétiques Beauté’s Hydrating Cleansing Mask 3 in 1 is the latest addition to the brand’s natural and vegan line-up. It has a Canadian hemp oil-infused formula that works as both a facial cleanser to melt away makeup and dirt as well as a hydrating mask when left on for 15 to 20 minutes.
Where to get it: Available now at saimmecosmetiques.com.
Peace Out Skincare OTC Hydrocolloid Acne Patches
What you need to know: The emergence of hydrocolloid acne patches on the beauty market has totally changed the spot treatment game thanks to the smart bandage technology that’s able to absorb fluid from a breakout to speed up healing while creating a protective barrier from irritating outside bacteria. Plus, they help prevent scar-inducing picking habits. After two years spent in Health Canada’s regulatory process, Peace Out Skincare’s OTC Hydrocolloid Acne Patches are finally landing at local Sephora near you, making these zit stickers the first hydrocolloid patches this side of the border to be infused with additional pimple-fighting active ingredients, like salicylic acid, vitamin A and soothing aloe vera.
Where to get it: Available online at Sephora from November 15.
