Makeup shaped into pretty pebbles and pearls has been popping up everywhere recently—and it’s easy to see why. Not only do these faintly shimmery bronzer, blush, and highlighting powders give cheeks a gorgeous glow when applied with a brush swirled over the multi-tonal pigments, but they can also multitask.

Bonus: The vintage-looking gold tube is super-glam and fun to pull out of your bag. What’s your favorite lip color for fall?
