I Tried 50 November Sephora Launches—These Are My 8 Favorites

The first of every month brings about a slew of new beauty products, each launch fancier and more exciting than the last. The thing is, though, they're not all the miracle potions and fountain-of-youth elixirs they promise to be. Wading through a pool of new products can be intimidating and sometimes disappointing. So I decided to try some of Sephora's buzziest new November launches and report back on what's worth it and what, sadly, is not. 

My original thought was to rank my favorites from best to worst, but as I wrote, I realized all my chosen formulas were uniquely wonderful in their own right. So sue me—they rule. I swatched and applied them all and took selfies to prove it. You can take my word for it. Below, find the products that are worth spending your hard-earned cash on because, well, you love beauty and so do I.
