Lust or Bust.png

More holiday!? You guessed it, girl. So much stuff this year… so much. In today’s edition of Lust or Bust – Holiday Collections we are talking about what’s new from Kat Von D, Ciate, Buxom, Clinique, Bite Beauty and Urban Decay. So many goodies.

Let’s get started.

Add heading

Saint & Sinner Lipstick + Fragrance Travel Duo

Starting with KVD, we have these cute little travel duos as part of the Saints & Sinners Collection. These were releases for like a day back when the perfume launched but they brought them back for the holidays.

What you have is a choice of is the Saint duo which contains a travel sized bottle of the Saint fragrance and a coordinating Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Saint, a peachy rose. In the Sinner Duo you gave the same format but with the Sinner fragrance and a mini Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Saint, a midnight plum shade.

These are great sets in my opinion. I would love to have the Sinner one because I like the lippy and the Sinner fragrance over Saint but I do like the lippy in Saint. $27 is a fair price too. 3

Everlasting Obsession Lip Liner Collector’s Edition

Next up from KVD is the Everlasting Obsession Lip Liner Collector’s Edition. Girl, that is a lot of money for 15 lip liners coming in a $200! Pass!!! Sorry, not Sorry Kat. The price point on these liners is too much in my opinion. Considering not many of us reach for blue, green, and lavender lip liners that often. Even with my personal style, I don’t have use for those shades, then again I guess I am kind of boring with my goth/alternative style.

This set contains:

  •  15 x 0.1 oz/ 0.3 g Everlasting Lip Liner in Skully (raven black), Lemmy (rock ‘n’ roll green), Poe (navy blue), Satellite (electric blue), Sinner (midnight plum), Coven (lavender), L.U.V. (rich violet), X (vibrant cherry red), Sexer (fluorescent pink), Kevvy (peach nude), Saint (peachy rose), Lolita II (terra cotta nude), D-Minor (warm almond), Outlaw (brick red), Bloodmilk (rich oxblood)

Okay, on to a brand I have an actual opinion about. Bite Beauty. I am a huge fan of Bite and they didn’t disappoint with the holiday sets.

Amuse Bouche Spiced Plum – Holiday Kiss Collection

I love the Amuse Bouche Lipstick formula, and this Spiced Plum is gorgeous!!! Do want!

Matte Crème Lip Crayon Mini

Another great formula from Bite is the Matte Creme Lip Crayons. I have some of these in the mini size, it’s a pretty good size to me, and you get 3 in this set for $14. Hell yeah.

  • Brandy
  • Red Velvet
  • Pastille

Amuse Bouche Two Toned Lipstick

These are kind of gimmicky, why is every brand making these? Did anyone ask for this? That being said I wouldn’t hate having Chai/Nori. LOL!

  • Honeycomb/ Fig – beige nude/ nude rose
  • Persimmon/ Kimchi – intense orange-red/ shocking pink
