There tends to be a trend of writing off September as an in-between month. It's somewhat rooted in truth; after all, the first weekend of the month signals the socially-accepted end of summer, despite the fact that fall doesn't officially start 'til the end of the September. However, what some may not realize while they impatiently wait out the transitional period is that it's also a month full of amazing new beauty launches, meaning it's the perfect time to update your shelves for the season ahead. Just take a look at Sephora's September makeup arrivals for proof.
