Review: ChapStick Holiday 2014 Limited Edition Flavors

A little while ago I showed you the press info for the Holiday 2014 offerings from ChapStick. I actually received the new lip balms for review shortly after that post, so in case you haven't seen these in your area yet, here's a closer look!

L'Oréal Acquires Carol's Daughter

L'Oreal owns Urban Decay, Maybelline, Garnier, Essie and lots of other brands that many of us know and love. And just this past June, L'Oreal acquired NYX. But did you know that Carol's Daughter can now be added to that list?

Available Now: Exclusive LORAC Holiday 2014 Ultimate PRO Collection

I know that I normally don't blog about cosmetics with high price-points, but I do make exception when it comes to higher-end cosmetic value sets that can save you a nice chunk of change (versus purchasing each product individually), and especially when the value set contains two wildly popular items!

Given that the holidays are right around the corner, I want to make sure you know about this exclusive that's now available for purchase:

This set includes both the PRO Palette 1 and PRO Palette 2, plus four other full-size products for under $100. All of the details, after the jump...

The Lipstick League - week of 10.13.14


The Lipstick League Question of the Week

Now that the weather is getting cooler in the Northern hemisphere, what product do you rely on to keep your skin soft and moisturized? 

G's answer: Considering that the weather hasn't really cooled down much yet here in S. Cal, I haven't had to switch to my more heavy-duty moisturizers yet. BUT, I have been testing out the much-talked-about Dr. Lin Daily Hydrating Gel and I'm super excited to tell you all about that in an upcoming review.

Sinful Colors Holiday 2014: Three New Shades

If you saw my post earlier today featuring the pic of the new Sinful Colors Holiday 2014 end-cap display that's now popping up at Walgreens, then you know that I was curious if there were other new holiday shades (aside from the two I blogged about here) in this display.

Well shortly after my post today, I stopped by Walgreens and they had the end-cap display (yay for finding it before the $0.99 sale was over!). So now I can personally confirm that there are THREE new holiday shades total and the rest of polishes in the display are repromotes from previous collections and the core line. There are the two I first showed you here named Twilight Twinkles and Galax-Sea (which you can also find at Rite Aid) and one new shade that is specific to the end-cap display at Walgreens, called Outta Space. I bought all three, so I thought you'd like to see some pics:

Holiday 2014 Nail Polish Sightings from Sinful Colors, Bonita Colors and More

I've got a lot to cover in the post so let's get right to it!

First up, as predicted when I first posted about the Sinful Colors Holiday 2014 Collections that started to pop up in these individual counter displays a while back, there's a new holiday end-cap display now showing up at Walgreens (if you catch this today, 10/18, you can still take advantage of the $0.99 Sinful Colors sale that ends tonight at Walgreens).

Thanks to reader Rita for sharing this pic of the holiday display at Walgreens:

The Profusion $1 Palettes Are Back for Holiday 2014

Remember those great little $1 Profusion 5-pans that were available at Walgreens for Holiday 2013? These are an insanely good deal for $1 each and I once again want to thank longtime reader Kris Feral for alerting me the beauty of these palettes last year (Kris, you rock!).

So guess what? They're back for Holiday 2014! Many thanks to reader Meghan (@makeup_looks_and_reviews on Instagram) for letting me know that @sunflower04220 on Instagram posted a pic of the display, which she found at her local Walgreens this week. @sunflower04220 kindly let me share that pic with you here, so take a look!

NOTE: To see my review of the purple palette below, CLICK HERE for my swatches from last year.

Profusion 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palettes
Back again at Walgreens for Holiday 2014
(retail: $1 each)

As you can see, these palettes contain the same shades as last year's. This may or may not be good news to you, but I for one am quite excited because I really want a backup of that purple palette (that lavender duochrome shade is worth the price of the entire palette, and you know I'm not even a big purple eyeshadow fan!).

I know that several of you on Instagram mentioned that you have access to these palettes at your Dollar Tree stores, but I'm thinking that may be a regional thing because I have never seen these particular palettes at my Dollar Trees. Have you?

Also, there's at least one more set of $1 Profusion palettes for Holiday 2014. Keep reading for a reader pic, after the jump...
