Fall beauty on a budget

*This is a sponsored post. However, all opinions are my own.*

You feel that crisp in the air? Yep, fall is almost here and I can’t wait!

I’m a late August baby, but fall is my jam. I love wearing light sweaters, seeing the leaves change, boots and I love the fall color palette for makeup.

Recently, Meijer gave me a sneak peek at some of the fall beauty products that will be on sale from now until September 15. You know I live for beauty on a budget.

When this massive shipment arrived, I didn’t know where to start, but I made and am still making my way through some of the products.

I was excited about each of the products, but I couldn’t wait to try the Loreal Pure-Clay Mask. I have a naturally oily T-zone and it seems to be at its worst in the summer time, so anything that can minimize pores and reduce shine, I’m here for it.


After washing my face with my regular cleanser, I decided to skip the astringent because I didn’t want to strip my face completely. The mask is easy to apply with your fingers, or you can use a brush. It does get hard pretty quickly, so don’t move too slowly. For 10 minutes I chilled and let the mask do its job. I felt a tingle, but it wasn’t bad.


I gently took the mask off with cool water and 1. my face cloth wasn’t completely green and 2. my face felt nice and supple like I had been to the spa, but I did this all at home! The mask retails for $12.99, but will be on sale all week at Meijer.

In my package were a few lippies and the one I am absolutely in love with is the  Neutrogena Moisture Smooth color stick in plum perfect.


First of all, the lip cream smells really good and the color is so perfect for fall. It has a hint of shimmer and color, but it’s really subtle, which is one of the lip looks I love for fall. I also love dark lips and nudes and I got a dark lippie from NYX in my goodies. *Squeals* NYX is one of my favorite beauty budget brands.

Before you get ready to switch your lipstick from summer bright to darker and neutral shades, make sure you brighten your smile. A bright lip makes your teeth look whiter, but neutrals and darks make them look dull. Definitely get the Colgate Optic White. It works fast and leaves your teeth sparkling until your next dentist appointment.

Also, give your lips a good exfoliation by using a sugar scrub. It makes your lipstick adhere better and last longer.

I have more products to try and will be doing mini reviews on my social media channels Instagram and Facebook, so be sure to check those out. Also, don’t forget to head to your nearest Meijer to get these products and more on sale from now until the 15th.
