Each month, Fashionista editors try a *lot* of beauty products. And while not every formula we test is a winner, we're constantly unearthing new favorites. Here, we've rounded up our latest hair, skin, fragrance, wellness and makeup discoveries — whether fresh-to-market drops or merely recent additions to our personal routines.

As we move from "Hocus Pocus" season to the "A Deep-Fried Korean Thanksgiving" episode of "Gilmore Girls" season, team Fashionista is taking a moment to shout out some of the top beauty products we tried this month.

Our October favorites span just about every category and budget: We became obsessed with an ultra-indulgent lip treatment, glow-enhancing skin care and makeup finds, hair products that helped our curls thrive and an inexpensive fragrance oil from an unexpected source. Click through the gallery below to see (and shop) them all.

<p><strong>E.l.f. Halo Glow Liquid Filter, $14, <a href="https://shop-links.co/1790182179633101768" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:available here" class="link ">available here</a>:</strong> "This glow-y, lightweight liquid makeup is marketed as a multi-purpose complexion enhancer, and that's pretty much spot-on. In place of foundation (my preferred use), it offers semi-sheer, buildable coverage, evening out skin tone without turning mask-like or cakey. It can also be worn under or mixed into matte or less dewy formulas for a bit more glimmer, or dabbed on as highlighter. I also love the doe-foot applicator, which has a divot in the center to pick up and deposit ample product." —Stephanie Saltzman, Beauty Director<br></p>

<p><strong>Westman Atelier Vital Skincare Dewy Foundation Drops, $68, <a href="https://shop-links.co/1787042433977940393" rel="nofollow noopener" target="_blank" data-ylk="slk:available here" class="link ">available here</a>: </strong>"This tiny tube is pricey — but after trying the lightweight, glow-inducing serum/makeup hybrid inside, I totally get it. Despite being silicone-free, it goes on with a luxurious glide, offering sheer-but-buildable coverage and imbuing skin with a dewy glow. It also includes hyaluronic acid for hydration and filters to protect skin from exposure to blue light and pollution." —Stephanie Saltzman, Beauty Director</p>
