A quintet of product to get you in the Halloween spirit—anytime.
While you may be past the age for toting around a plastic pumpkin full of candy, it’s still fun to dress up—your products. These five would be fabulous even if they came in cardboard, but their preternatural packaging makes them perfect fits for the most frightening time of the year. HOLLY SIEGEL
#1 SEPHORA COLLECTION DROP DEAD GORGEOUS BRUSH SET
SEPHORA COLLECTION brushes are loved for their value and quality—and this kit adds a statement accessory to the mix. A studded skull-bedecked clutch comes packed with five makeup brushes—plus a detachable chain strap for when you want to be pretty in punk.
#2 ARDENCY INN MODSTER LONG PLAY SUPERCHARGED LIP COLOR IN BLACK IS BLUE
Whether your navy lipstick is part of a vampy costume or you’re just feeling blue, this ARDENCY INN lipstick is tough luck. The smooth balm-like formula melts into lips and lasts past midnight.
#3 TOKYOMILK DARK FATE & FORTUNE COLLECTION - DESTINY NO. 79 PARFUM DE CIGGARO ROLLERBALL
This mysterious scent is spiked with fresh-cut ginger, honeysuckle, rose, davana, and midnight jasmine. It suits any getup from pirate to pharmacist—or, you know, receptionist.
#4 SEPHORA COLLECTION EYE GRAPHIC 4 COLORS PALETTE IN SMOKY VIOLET
Ignoring for a moment the gorgeous cobalt shadow paired with three smoky eye-ready shades, the packaging for this palette is just to die for. Get up on the stud trend in your own small way—or add to your pile of pyramids.
# 5 URBAN DECAY NAIL COLOR IN VICE
This limited-edition shade is a highly pigmented, iridescent deep purple with red and blue micro-shimmer—and the skull-crowned bottle is downright undead. Much like Urban Decay’s polishes, which are being reintroduced with seasonal, limited-edition shades.
