For some people, the beginning of October marks the official countdown to Halloween. If you’re a beauty aficionado, however, it also means one thing: new fall beauty launches. Maybe it’s the budding anticipation for holiday releases or the extra time you’re probably starting to spend indoors, but regardless, this season of beauty-product drops just hits differently.

With the colder months hovering just right around the corner, a common theme we’re looking at can be summed up in one word: rich. From decadent body oils, pumpkin-scented candles, and hydrating hair and face creams, there’s something comforting about refreshing your beauty routine and cabinet this season. Should you also be an early bird, you can even get a head start on your holiday shopping and beat the crowds. A win-win.

If you’re looking for a starting point, use this list to kick off your October beauty shopping. Keep reading ahead for the best new beauty launches this month.
