Top 100 Cosmetics Trends in September

From Targeted Skincare Boosters to Icy Plumping Lip Balms

— September 11, 2022 — Fashion
The September 2022 cosmetics round-up features various sustainable formulations with ethically sourced ingredients.

A new Berlin-based skincare brand by the name of Herbar is making a splash in the clean beauty space with its mushroom-powered formulations—from The Face Oil which contains Tremella and Reishi mushrooms to The Gua-Shroom beauty tool.

Elf Cosmetics, on the other hand, banks on a luminous appearance with its multi-functional Halo Glow Liquid Filter which allows one to replicate the soft glow from social media filters in real life.

Lush strongly embraces sustainability in the September 2022 cosmetics round-up—from its heavenly aromatic stress-relieving shampoo bar called New to the Ro's Argan body conditioner which blends cocoa, shea, and cupuacu butters along with brazil nut, almond, and argan oils.
