Drugstore FALL Makeup & Four $50 Giftcards GIVEAWAY!

Hi My Loves!!!

With the Fall season upon us (ours literally came in the form of a hail storm that completely tore apart our house lol) it's that time to start pulling out the darker shades for makeup. Dark berry and red lips, coppery browns, plums and golden dark greens and some of my favorite colors to wear in the Fall and I'm going to show you some of my favorite drugstore pieces from one of my favorite drugstore brands, Physicians Formula, to create some beautiful Fall makeup looks. 

What's nice about this is that it has 4 individual shades that can take you from Summer through to Winter depending on whether you have a bit of a tan going on or your our pale for the winter :) Or you can mix them all together for the perfect warm glow.

For blushes I have two options. The first one is my very favorite blush from Physicians Formula, the Sexy Glow Sexy Booster Blush. Not only does it smell like vanilla, it has a beautiful pink subtle shimmer that adds a nice color and subtle gleam to your cheek. The next option which is perfect for Fall is the Happy Booster Glow & Mood Boosting Blush in Rose. These has some deeper toned rose pinks and mauves mixed in so that it gives that slightly deeper color for Fall. Plus it smells good too :) It's not so shimmery either so if you are someone who doesn't like shimmer to their blush, this one would be better for you.

Now this is a must have in anyone makeup collection. It's the Powder Palette Mineral Glow Pearls. I've had mine for years! I actually first got turned on to it from the ever so lovely BlackLabLover9. I saw her use it and immediately went out and got it. You always should have a highlighter. I am a highlighting queen lol, I just have an obsession. This is actually one of Kandee Johnson's favorite highlighters too!

I have 3 different options for eye palettes for Fall. These 3 are all shimmery and then I have one matte option below too. The first one with all the purple shades is perfect for those of you with green, brown and hazel eyes... or anyone who really loves a good plum eye! It's the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Pop Collection in Pop Brown Eyes. This is another one I've had for years (when I was pregnant with Phoenix) and I just love these shades for fall. Next one over is another really beautiful one for Fall but more earth toned with a couple of light pink tones. This one is the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Bronze Collection in Bronze Hazel Eyes. Specifically designed for Hazel eyes but still looks great on my blue eyes and my sisters dark chocolate brown eyes too. Last but not least is my very favorite one. The Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Shadow & Liner Nude Collection in Warm Nude Eyes. This is a semi recent one for me (I got it at the beginning of the summer) and I just love this one. It's so perfect for my blue eyes and if you like golds, coppers and warm browns you will love this palette. It's so shimmery and beautiful and perfect for that warm coppery fall makeup look.

Now I realize not everyone likes shimmery eyeshadows, so for those Matte ladies out there.... here's a perfect matte quad that's perfect for creating a beautiful warm neutral classic eye. The Matte Collection Quad Eyeshadow is really pretty and perfectly matte ;)

For liners I picked the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Cream/Gel Liner for Brown Eyes. It's got a black with a tiny bit of shimmer, a dark chocolate brown and a rich, deep plum. All of these shades have a tiny bit of shimmer to them but noting that's crazy obvious. They last all day long without creasing (even on my greasy, creasy lids) and apply so easily and creamy. I like to apply them with the Sigma E05 for that perfect wing.

For pencils the Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Eyeliner Trio Nude Collection are absolutely gorgeous and perfect for this season. They are all shimmery and pigmented and last a super long time without smudging. If you apply them and then try to wash it off of your hands, it will still be there. These are really great. And such perfect copper and bronze colors for fall. I love to use these as a base underneath my shadow for that extra pop and long lasting power. 

How beautiful is that copper? I love that color! So pretty!

Now these have to be my ALL TIME FAVORITE product that Physicians Formula has come out with of all time. The Shimmer Strips Custom Eye Enhancing Liquid Metal EYeliner Trio Universal Looks Collection in Nude Eyes are truly amazing. I like to use them as a base under my shadow and also on my inner corner to brighten up my eyes and on my lower lash line for extra sparkle. They really are so beautiful and last forever! I love how small and easy they are to use as well. They are all super shimmery and the colors are perfect for giving you that wide awake look (even if you are so tired)...

Here's the liners swatches on the right side of my hand. How pretty are they??

Last but not least is my favorite lip product from Physicians Formula and this color is so perfect for the fall season especially with all the festive holidays coming up. This is the Sexy Booster Sexy Glow Glossy Stain in Red. It's the perfect red, it's got a great finish that isn't matte but it's not too glossy to where it bleeds and feathers all over your lips and you end up looking like you just got done making out ;) It stays on really well and looks beautiful. Perfect for holiday pictures!

All of these products can be found at my very favorite drugstore (like I have to tell you) Target. As you all know I love Target.... I could probably just live there and be fine and dandy. I swear I'm there at least twice a week haha! Speaking of Target, have you signed up for their Target Debit card yet (it's not a credit card so don't be skeptical, I was at first)..... That thing is honestly the best thing that ever happened to me shopping wise. Every purchase whether you make it online or in the store, on full priced items or clearance you save 5% on your purchase. All day, erry day :) It's the best thing ever! Plus free shipping on online purchases! So next time you are in Target and the cashier asks you if you want to sign up for it..... say YES! You will love it ;) And no Target is not paying me to tell you this.... but I do use mine every time I shop there and always save a bunch :) I tell all my friends all the time. BS just signed up for it and loves it too. So now you know about that, let's get back to what I was talking about... random rant I know haha! Target has now relocated their Physicians Formula line, which is now on the end cap of the aisle. 

In celebration of Physicians Formula's new location, Physicians Formula contacted me just recently and asked if I would like to offer 4 lucky readers a $50 gift card to spend in Target. Of course I said YES! Any chance I get to give back to you guys I try to do as often as I can because I appreciate you all so much and I love when you guys get to win something ;) Physicians Formula also sent me some goodies to say thank you for doing this post and I already had the products that they sent to me so I figured I would throw these items in for one lucky winner too. So all together there will be 5 lucky winners! 1 winner will receive the makeup goodies shown below from me (I'll send them to you myself) and then 4 readers will win a $50 gift card each.

Here's the makeup that 1 winner will be winning from me ;)
