Cosmetic Launch Roundup: September 1-7, 2019

Autumn is growing ever closer and coffee fans are already swarming Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spice Lattes. This is my favorite season; candles come out as the days turn grey… Anyway, this week saw a fair mix of drugstore and indie brands.

Zoeva Cosmetics, shortly after announcing their venture into Ulta stores, has launched 44 shades of a luminous foundation called Authentik. This foundation costs $28 and is available on Zoeva’s site or you can wait until September 9th when Authentik hits retail shelves.
