Technically, there's no reset button for life, but fall comes pretty close to getting a blank slate. The new season brings the chance to switch up your wardrobe, swapping out sandals for booties and spaghetti straps for sweaters. It's also an excuse to experiment with
new hair color, like a citrine blonde or chestnut brown. Most importantly, fall marks the time of year when the beauty departments are loaded with new loot. Over the last month, our favorite brands have been busy dropping gems at the drugstore. For your skin-care regimen, there are new high-impact serums that don't require a prescription. In the makeup section, there are a bunch of smoky palettes and vampy lip colors to complement your fall aesthetic. And you'll also find new easy-to-pack masks to erase signs of damaged hair well before New Year's Eve. Ahead, we rounded up some of our favorite fall drugstore launches to add to your shopping list. At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team.

We'd add this lip balm to our fall stash just for the packaging, but it's what inside of the dressed-up Vaseline tin that makes it worth adding to your cart. This limited-edition version is filled with the OG petroleum formula we love in a peach tint with teeny flecks of gold shimmer. It's perfect for the days when you need a subtle flush of color and intense hydration.
