Our Highly Selective

Fresh Start

My fall supplies come by way of Sephora and Net-a-Porter, not Staples (please, not Staples). The AIR MAIL LOOK team and I selected our favorite new products for the season, the ones that give us a fresh attitude and, fingers crossed, the hope of a shinier future

Charlotte Tilbury


Magic Water Cream

In case you’ve been living under a rock (if so, your skin must be absolutely dewy), you know that Charlotte Tilbury’s Magic Cream is a gorgeous moisturizer. The new water version is still a powerhouse but lighter in weight. Tilbury says one application gives 100 hours of hydration, but who’s counting?

Makeup By Mario


SurrealSkin Awakening Concealer

Do you have something to hide? I certainly do, and Mario Dedivanovic is the man to hide it. He’s the makeup artist who vaulted to fame as Kim Kardashian’s favorite and can clearly hide anything. His new concealer comes in 22 shades and requires no setting powder to stay put.

Victoria Beckham Beauty


Vast Lash Mascara

Proving the aptness of her Spice Girl moniker, Beckham’s beauty collection is, indeed, posh. Her new mascara is a lush formula that coats and volumizes lashes in just a few strokes. Nearly every mascara smudges on me and this one doesn’t at all. Smudges, by the way? Not posh.



Mosebacke Long Opal Raincoat

You know those raincoats that look stylish until you’re soaked to the skin? This Stutterheim isn’t one of them—it could probably protect you in a monsoon. The double-welded seams repel moisture and grommeted holes under the arms keep things cool. I love the way this one shines like wet pavement—and how it means I never have to carry an umbrella.

R+Co Bleu


Blonded Brightening Shampoo

Your summer blonde is as fleeting as fireflies and beach picnics, but it doesn’t have to be. This shampoo extends the season—at least on your head—with antioxidants to counteract yellow undertones and blue pigments (from violets, how nice is that?) to lift dullness.

Live Tinted


Hueskin Serum Concealer

Deepica Mutyala became a sensation when she used red lipstick to hide her undereye circles on YouTube. Her new concealer takes a more traditional approach, covering hyperpigmentation while treating it with niacinamide, bakuchiol, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, and a touch of caffeine to reduce puffiness.



Twisted Flannel Top

This wool blend sweater has a few secrets. One is the asymmetric shape that nips in cleverly but not obviously at the waist. The other is a hidden zipper on one shoulder that enables it to be pulled on and off with ease. The little things: That’s why I love Toteme, and why it reminds me of Phoebe Philo’s Céline.

Olivia Von Halle


Fifi Rose Pajamas

A new pair of back-to-school pajamas is a good reminder to prioritize sleep at this frenetic time of year. This silk set is so glamorous, you might be tempted to lounge around theatrically—or even to become a somnambulist. Add a monogram in case you get lost.

Marie Veronique


Face to Chest Hydration Mask

The supremely gentle ingredients in this line aim to calm and prevent inflammation and balance skin’s microbiome. The gel mask is a perfect specimen. It reduces redness and flushing and adds cooling moisture. It’s even better after chilling in the fridge.

Little Liffner


Mega Sprout Tote

This tote is a Mary Poppins’ dream but instead of holding a lamp and a hat stand it fits a laptop, a journal, five lipsticks, lunch, a bottle of fragrance, and a split of Champagne with room to spare. It’s ideal for travel or just for going from A to B with all your essentials.

Mrs. John L. Strong


Custom Stationery

There’s only one way to bring back the art of the handwritten note: With luxurious personalized stationery. These vanilla cards are a classic made of heavy stock with envelopes lined in colored tissue. They’re just the thing for an epistolary romance.

Frédéric Malle


Jurassic Flower Rubber Incense

This object works more like a sachet than incense (there’s no burning involved). Pop one in a closet, one on your bedside table, and the third in your car where it emits fragrance continuously for six months. Carlos Benaim created this magnolia blend, and The Mark Hotel scents its halls and lobby with it.



The Marfa Loafer

Doesn’t everyone want a fresh pair of loafers for fall? Nostalgic and practical, they look smart with pants, skirts, dresses, sweats, pajamas—pretty much everything. These have the added pleasure of shiny croc-embossed leather and crisp square toes.



Bois Sauvage Bath Salt

A big, handsome apothecary jar filled with bath salts is just the invitation we need to wind-down before bed. The salts—including soothing, anti-inflammatory Epsom—are combined with dried botanicals in a scent that mixes bergamot, tobacco, jasmine, and spices. It smells like the forest after the rain. Inhale. Exhale. Sigh. Goodnight.
