Sometimes the easiest way to get through the last few weeks of warm weather is to shop for new beauty products for fall.

A new facial toner, brow product or lipstick can be just the pick-me-up needed to survive summer’s last push. Pixi by Petra’s fall collection is in Target stores now, including a U.K. fan favorite that’s finding its way stateside for the first time.

Pixi's popular Glow Tonic is a gentle exfoliating toner created by makeup artist Petra Strand. It’s touted as renewing, smoothing, brightening and clearing the skin, leaving a healthy glow. Strand recommends using it in the morning and evening on dry, clean skin, but it can be used any time of day to gently exfoliate lips, soothe razor burn or even tame bug bites. Aloe vera, ginseng and botanical extracts brighten and soothe while hazel and glycolic acid minimize pores and speed up cell renewal.

Strand talked with Target about Glow Tonic and the fall collection.

She said she focused on creating gorgeous products that not only fit current trends and techniques, but also provide benefits that better the skin. Products are infused with ingredients such as ginseng, coffee, aloe vera, super fruits and more to create a clearer complexion, perkier pout and wide-awake eyes.

She told Target she’s most excited about Glow Tonic, the company’s hottest item the past couple of years. It is exclusive at Target. She’s also likes the Endless Brow Gel Pens, calling them the ultimate brow product. The gel-like texture makes it easy to fill in sparse areas. And the company is reintroducing lipsticks to the lineup with the Mattelustre Lipsticks, available in 11 shades. The formula is long-lasting, conditioning and plumping.

She said she wanted to offer shades that make the transition from season to season. Rich blues and purples on the eyes are important for fall, she said.

And what are her favorite Pixi products?

“If I’m in a pinch or looking for that no makeup-makeup look, I keep it to Glow Tonic to prep and exfoliate my skin, Illuminating Tint & Conceal for natural coverage and sun protection, Eye Bright Liner in the inner rim of my eyes and a few swipes of Large Lash Mascara to really open up my eyes! If I’m going out to a nice dinner or event, I add some extra drama with the Endless Silky Eye Pens -- the flecks of glimmer really make my eyes pop -- and a hit of color on my lips with the new Mattelustre Lipsticks because they last for hours.”
