Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm & Lacquer Balms;
Maybelline Gilded in Gold

Best Boyfriend EVER:

Since NouveauCheap has mentioned that these had landed, I HAD to look for them. Although I spent all weekend hunting, they were nowhere to be found. When it's the weekdays, I have no car, so I have no access to stalk products & normally by the time it's weekend, the things I want are sold out. Well, my boyfriend is the sweetest ever! Knowing that I have been looking for these & after showing him pictures while I was hunting over the weekend, he ended up going to look for them for me himself so I would not miss out on them. This morning when he told me they had it in & I was SO excited!

Here's some display pictures:

Revlon's new Lacquer Balms & Matte Balms. My boyfriend had a full display, but he took the picture after he took the ones that he was going to buy for me, which is why it's not full, but he did good! I like how half the display itself is glossy, and the other half is matte!

The next collection he found that I was looking for was Maybelline's Holiday Gilded in Gold collection. Normally, I do not use their Color Tattoos, but the fact that the ones in this display are matte and limited edition, I just had to have them, so he picked all three up for me as well.

The few that he purchased for me:

A few of both the Revlon Lacquer Balms in Vivacious, Provacateur & Enticing, Revlon Matte Balms in Standout, Shameless, Sultry & Showly, as well as the three color Tattoos in Matte Brown, Just Beige, and Nude Pink.

One thing I would like to note is that 6 of the 10 matte Revlon Matte Balm shades only have one for each display, such as Shameless (the purple) & Standout (deep red), so they may be harder to find. I was lucky enough to have my boyfriend be able to go look for these everyday & for them to put them up when he was there.

I cannot wait until I get to see him later on this week so that I can see these in person! & I will definitely try them out when I have the time to if I am not loaded up with homework this weekend so I can have swatches & review up for you guys! :) Like I have mentioned before, I appreciate my boyfriend SO much and for him to understand and be so helpful with this makeup obsession of mine is amazing! I seriously do not know what I would do without him because he seriously is the best I have ever had.

Do you think you will be picking up some of these new Holiday Collection items?


  1. Super sweet of your boyfriend! I'm so behind in the makeup world now, I had no idea these were out! haha.

    I won't be picking anything up this year from the Holiday Collections... Well, I'll try my best anyway! I got the Vice 2 palette yesterday and I am sooooo in love! But that's all I plan to get unless they're for gifts or something.

    I'm getting overwhelmed with all the makeup I own and I think it's time to downsize.

    1. The best! lol. I'm overwhelmed with my makeup, but at the same time, I can't stop because if I miss out & regret it, I would have to spend a bunch later on in-case they are LE.

    2. Lol I totally get it about being overwhelmed with makeup as I have so much myself. I have been on the hunt like a lunatic since blogger G posted the Gilded collection. I am Sooo tired of looking for them because none of my BBB has a Harmons. I did finally get the Brocade nail collection from Rite Aid. I just wish one of my local stores CVS or Walgreens would get the CT and blushers. I feel like giving up, but as you said then I'll feel remorse...uggh the life of a beauty addict.

  2. I wish I could find those! They look amazing!

  3. I'm jealous! I spent all day looking for them! They look fabulous. The search continues for me.
