Nineties nostalgia, the most anticipated advent calendar of the year and more. Here's a selection of some make-up and skincare drops we're particularly excited about this October

Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Breast Cancer Campaign 2021 Pink Ribbon Edition

Estée Lauder has been a leader in the fight against breast cancer since Evelyn H. Lauder founded The Breast Cancer Campaign in 1993. To raise funds for this year's campaign, Estée Lauder are releasing a limited edition version of its Advanced Night Repair serum - a holy grail product that has transcended generations - which features a pink camouflage leather case. 

Estée Lauder will donate a portion of the retail price for every sale of this limited edition Advanced Night Repair serum, with proceeds going toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation from October 1 until December 31, 2021. 

Available at Estée Lauder stores and counters across Hong Kong.

In this year's edition of the gift that keeps on giving, you'll find star products like The Rich Cream by Augustinus Bader, The Lifting Serum by Dr. Barbara Sturm, Omorovicza's Deep Cleansing Mask, eyeliner by Charlotte Tilbury, Oribe Power Drops and more.

Byredo Makeup Shimmering Nudes

We love a nineties-inspired nude à la Halle Berry, Drew Barrymore or Sarah Michelle Gellar and Reese Witherspoon in Cruel Intentions. Especially if it sparkles. 

Byredo Makeup's latest release is a quartet of soft, smoky nude lipsticks with an iridescent sheen. We don't know how to explain it, but the shades' names are deliciously nineties as well: Damson Jam, Amber in Furs, Feverish and Vieux Rose.

Fenty Skin Butta Drop

The end of summer means the dry months are upon us. Gear up with one of Fenty Skin latest releases, the Butta Drop Whipped Oil Body Cream. 

The buttery smooth formula is packed with a blend of tropical oils, butters, and extracts including Kalahari melon oil, baobab oil, sunflower oil and shea butter.

Like all Fenty Skin products, the earth-conscious packaging comes in the brand's signature purple and  features a refillable system made with recyclable materials.
