Fall beauty

Shoppers Drug Mart fall beauty picks
What it is: A few choice beauty products from Shoppers Drug Mart to help put your best face forward for the fall season.

Beauty bonus: Sans budget-busting picks, this round-up of beauty goodies is pretty easy to fit into even the most shoestring of budgets.

Beauty bummer: None! Who doesn't love staples such as a good lip colour, radiant skin and clean-cut cuticles?

Overall: We loved how these products were good foundations for every look — for fall, back to school and beyond!

Hydrated, smooth skin is the perfect starting point for every cold-weather season, so we especially loved the in-house Life Brand Vitamin A moisturizer ($13.99) as a night treatment because it was ultra rich and skin-smoothing. Who doesn't love waking up with baby-soft skin?

From bold lip colours (our fall favourite!) to cuticle oil, the retailer has everything you need for the fall.

And add in the fact that they just launched a beauty-only website featuring a whole host of exclusive brands, designer fragrances and beauty tools ... and we're pretty much set for the season.

Would I recommend? Yes
Price: $8.99-$24
