The fall launches are fast and furious as brands fill their assortments with holiday newness, many expanding beyond their core focus into new trending categories like skincare and body care.

Nude Sugar: Grammy Award winner Toni Braxton is in the beauty brand business, launching a vegan body care line exclusively with Ulta. The assortment consists of shower gel, body serum, two body creams, and a hair mist formulated for skin of color and priced between $18 and $45.

Collaborations and Limited Editions

Gelcare x Gab Bois: Born out of the Le Manoir nail salons in Canada, the brand’s polish formulas are 10 free. The FW21 collection draws inspiration from 10 items whose cultural relevance continues to stand the test of time. The brand collaborated with artist Gab Bois, known for her witty photography that transforms everyday objects from mundane to memorable, to bring colors to life.

Ciate London x Christine Quinn: The binge-worthy Netflix series Selling Sunset has made Christine Quinn an icon of empowerment, confidence, and serious style. She is bringing her ambitious personality and signature sass to a one-of-a-kind collaboration that serves as an unapologetic reminder to embrace your confidence, love yourself, and go get exactly what you want. The limited-edition packaging is designed by Christine's favorite NYC-based artist, 1penemy.

Kenra Professional: The pro hair brand unveiled a nostalgic, ’80s-themed limited-edition version, a nod to their original packaging from 1987 for their best-selling SKU of over 34 years, Volume Spray 25. Available now on Amazon for $19.99. To celebrate, the brand issues its first-ever NFT with all proceeds donated to The Rapunzel Project, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping chemotherapy patients keep their hair throughout treatment via the use of Cold Cap Therapy.

Category Expansions

ZitSticka: The brand expands their acne-fighting line with two dermatologically backed body care products designed to work together to optimize the skin's barrier and fight body acne. Silkshake is a body cleanser features a combination of pre, post, and probiotics that work to balance the skin's microbiome. Fizz Fountain is a supercharged body scrub formulated with chemical and physical exfoliants that refine and retexturize the skin. Both products are priced at $25.

Spotlight Oral Care: The three-step Smile Rejuvenation System ($180) was created by cosmetic dentists using K-Beauty technology to create the perfect combination of hydrating and collagen plumping to enhance and nourish the skin around the mouth. Includes four single-use Derma-Roller Tips, peptide-enriched Pro-Regeneration Serum, and four hydration-boosting Lip Masks.

Product Launches

Simihaze Beauty: Following the brand launch with Capsule One early this summer, twin sisters Simi and Haze Khadra launch Capsule Two, consisting of a three-piece collection focused on the eyes. AM/PM Magnetic Eye Quads ($55) are housed in custom magnetic, sculptural packaging with a raw resin-like finish for a unique multisensory experience, accompanied by a Dual-Ended Eyeshadow Brush ($26).

Trinny London: Founder Trinny Woodall heard from her Trinny Tribe—a group of currently 29,300 women globally that they wanted a product for hormonal breakouts, oily skin, and no shine formula. BFF Rebalance ($50) is the solution, a shine-reducing tinted serum with the perfect amount of buildable, oil-controlling coverage.

Versed: The latest launch is an invisible gel that both impedes melanin production and slows the transfer of pigment. Out Of Sight Dark Spot Gel ($16.99) is a concentrated brightening treatment, packed with tranexamic acid, licorice root extract, niacinamide, and kojic acid.

Kristin Ess Hair: Celebrity hairstylist and colorist Kristin Ess' iconic haircare brand has rolled out a collection of on-trend hair accessories perfect for fall. The Skinnies, Claw Clips, and Velvet Bow Slides are available at Target and priced between $10 and $14.

R+Co: Two new color care products join the brand's Gemstone Color Collection, specifically designed for color-treated hair. Pre-Shampoo Color Protect Masque ($32) and Ulta Shine Glossing Treatment ($38) are designed to polish and prolong the vibrancy of color for up to 10 washes.

Urban Skin Rx: Expanding on its Even Tone franchise, Urban Skin Rx is introducing a new hyperpigmentation hero, Advanced Even Tone Day & Night Treatment ($58).
