Some people enjoy long walks on the beach. We prefer long walks down the aisles of Shoppers Drug Mart (seriously though). We could spend hours swatching and testing, filling our baskets with (probably too many) beauty products. The mix of high-end and drugstore beauty finds makes Shoppers Drug Mart the one-stop-shop for all things beauty and wellness. And with the season changing, we’ve rounded up some of our must-have beauty items, all available at Shoppers Drug Mart.
Urban Decay Stay Naked Foundation, $50
You love Urban Decay’s Naked eyeshadow palettes. Now, the brand introduces its Stay Naked Weightless Foundation. Available in 50 shades (yes, seriously), this light-as-air foundation offers medium coverage with a barely-there feel. Plus, the formula is vegan and cruelty-free, so you can feel good about what you’re putting onto your skin.
Dermablend Professional Illuminating Banana Powder, $36
Never underestimate the power of a setting powder. This product is often overlooked but is one of the most crucial you should have in your arsenal. Dermablend’s loose illuminating powder uses an iridescent formula to brighten and warm up your complexion, while locking your makeup in for a no-budge finish. Using colour theory, the banana yellow-toned powder counteracts any dull or cold-hued complexion for a bright, youthful finish.
Lise Watier Dress Code Palette in Street Style, $39
As we restock our closets with denim, knit and leather basics for fall, we’re also adding beauty items like a staple eyeshadow palette. This five-shade palette allows you to highlight and build, while creating depth and dimension in your eyeshadow look, going easily from day to night. And with Lise Watier’s smooth, cream-to-powder formula and high-pigment, you know you’re getting a great product for the price.
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Ruby Cream in #204 Ruby Passion, $42
It’s always a good time for a new lipstick, and Lancôme’s L’Absolu Rouge offers one of the creamiest, comfiest formulas out there. This new Ruby Passion shade—with its vibrant crimson hue—is the perfect addition to your autumn beauty rotation. Plus, the hydrating formula will make sure your lips look and feel their best—even when the temps start dipping.
Smashbox Photo Finish Oil and Shine Control Primer, $44
Let’s be honest: Fall weather isn’t that great—at least not at first. There’s a lot of fluctuation with the temperature, which can mean your skin doesn’t know how to act and your once-fixed face can slowly melt throughout the day, leaving you with shiny skin (and not quite the glow you were hoping to achieve). Smashbox does primers really well and this new lightweight gel formula gives a matte, even finish that helps your makeup stay precisely where you put it, keeping that oil and shine under control all day long.
Benefit Cosmetics Precisely, My Brow Pencil, $32
Not ready to make the microblading commitment? We’re right there with you, which is why we’re reaching for Benefit’s best selling brow product, following a long line of ride-or-dies that have become staples in our makeup bags. The ultra-thin, precision tip allows you to define and fill your brows with natural-looking hair-like strokes and lasts for 12 hours once applied (and it’s waterproof!).
Stila Magnum XXX Mascara, $30
Fall is all about the drama when it comes to makeup and fashion and Stila’s latest mascara creation helps you create that bold season-approved look. This mega-volume formula is buildable to create thick lashes but leaves them feeling light and flexible without any clumps in sight.
