Top 90 Cosmetics Trends in September

From Empowering Beauty Campaigns to Mobile Skincare Labs

— September 30, 2015 — Fashion
These September 2015 cosmetics trends range from shoe-inspired lipsticks to millennial anti-aging ads that aid younger generations in preventing wrinkles before they happen. In addition to Christian Louboutin's celebrated makeup range -- the recently launched lipstick line features bold hues and gilded packaging -- the month's other standouts include Aesop's Toronto boutique design that brings the skincare brand's clean and minimalist aesthetic to Canada.

Other favorites include empowering beauty ads -- Avon's latest campaign replaces traditional models with the brand's employees and celebrity ambassadors -- and DIY body exfoliants that can be made with simple household ingredients.

In addition to the month's marketing and retail examples, these September 2015 cosmetics also include various DIY skincare solutions. In addition to body care products that are made with household ingredients, rose water toners and homemade deodorants are other winning examples that appeal to health an budget-conscious consumers.
