Lust or Bust (2)

You guy! This is my 401st blog post! And I have been fighting a hella cold this week so posts have been lagging behind but I am feeling much better today, just have a little cough so I am drinking Matcha tea and hoping for the best.

In today’s post, we have yet another Lust or Bust  Holiday Collections, there are only 2 more following this one which one will be devoted to the drugstore and one to Sephora brand gifts and Sephora gift sets.

Like with the last couple of posts, this is comprised of items that caught my eye either good or bad. It’s a mix of a wish list and an anti-haul rolled into one.  Let’s get started!

First up is some picks from Burberry.

Burberry Festive Beauty Box

The Burberry Festive Beauty Box is a lovely set of best sellers from Burberry for a decent price to try out some luxe makeup.

This set contains:

  • Cat Lashes
  • Fresh Glow Deluxe Mini in Nude Radiance No.1
  • Lip Velvet Deluxe Mini in Oxblood
  • Eye Colour Glow in Gold Pearl

Burberry Beauty Box

Same as the Festive Beauty Box there is the Burberry Beauty Box. I thought these were nice little gift sets.

This set contains:

  • Burberry Cat Lashes in Jet Black
  • Fresh Glow in Nude Radiance
  • Burberry Kisses in Russet
  • Light Glow in Dark Earthy No.11

Festive Limited-Edition Burberry Full Kisses

Next up are two lipsticks in limited edition shades. I really think these shades are pretty and the packaging is sleek. I like the design of these too.

  • Oxblood No. 549
  • Deep Crimson No. 567

Silver Shimmer Illuminating Powder

This is probably one of the most beautiful highlighters I have ever seen. It screams holiday elegance. I love the shade and everything else about it.

Blush Palette

I’m no 100 percent sure if this part of holiday but this is just a stunning blush and I want it! It’s so pretty I would never want to use it, same for the highlighter. They are just too pretty to mess up.

Sugar Spice and All Things Nice Trio

Next is is this pretty awesome looking set from Lipstick Queen called the Sugar Spice and All Things Nice Trio. I’m not often into Lipstick Queen’s products as they usually seem gimmicky but this set is really cool and up my alley.


  • Ice Queen Lipstick (glistening icy shimmer-flecked in golden stardust)
  • Queen Bee Lipstick (honey-toned)
  • Black Lace Rabbit (sheer black w/ fine gold shimmer)

Now for a ton of new stuff from Too Faced from their new Gold Collection. Too Faced is very hit or miss for me but a few pieces in this collection are calling my name.

Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

The Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette is probably the first Chocolate Bar Palette I have been drawn in by and infused with real gold. I’m not sure if that is going to make a difference in the shadows but hey. I love the jewel tones and rich shimmers. The mattes are perfect shades for the shimmers, it feels well thought out and coordinated, aside from the hot pink. Over the hot pink.

This set contains:
– 14 Eyeshadows in Money Bags, Rich Girl, Cocoa Truffle, Decadent, Love & Cocoa, Old Money, New Money, Famous, Classy & Sassy, So Boujee, Holla For a Dolla, Gold Dipped, Livin’ Lavish and Drippin’ Diamonds
– 2 Eyeshadows in Chocolate Gold, Rollin’ in Dough

Chocolate Gold Soleil Bronzer

This one feels pretty pointless. No one ever wants a shimmery bronzer. That’s all I have to say.

Diamond Highlighter

I can’t wait to swatch this. It looks gorgeous. It makes me think more of opal rather than diamond but so pretty. I like subtle hints of rainbow swirled in it.

Glow Job

The name is tasteless AF, but something about the product itself is really cute. The mask claims to exfoliate and leave your skin radiant and ready for makeup. I think this would be a fun mask to do on a night in with the girls kind of thing. It’s more for fun than skincare I think but if the skincare aspect works than even better.

Melted Gold

I am also intrigued by the Melted Gold Lipgloss. There is a part of me wants a gold metallic gloss even though I don’t feel like it would be the most flattering on me, I still want to try it.

Pure Gold Loose Glitter

This looks more like a loose pigment rather than glitter to me but still pretty.

Chocolate Vault

Honestly, if you haven’t bought any of these palettes by now, you just don’t want them. Me included. The only thing in there I am into is the lip products.


  • 3 full-size Chocolate Bar Palettes: Chocolate Bar, Semi-Sweet, and Chocolate Bon Bons

  • Chocolate Bon Bons Eye Shadow Collection is infused with 100% real cocoa powder and a rich, decadent chocolate scent
  • Includes #1-selling prestige mascara, Better Than Sex Mascara

Clover Eye Shadow Palette

This palette I am into for sure. I like the shades included and it benefits animals. I have seen some hit or miss reviews though and it’s only available on so you can’t swatch it.

To celebrate the launch of our Clover palette we are donating $250,000 to Best Friends Animal Society!

Troublemaker Eyeshadow Palette

I know I have these shades in a palette or 3 but I still think this is a pretty little palette to have. I like the reds and the green plus you get a mini of the Troublemaker mascara. I really like the Troublemaker palette the more I look at it.

  • Riot (deep metallic copper)

Park Ave Princess Chisel Palette

Not the most exciting stuff from Cargo but I really like these.

Limited Edition Swimmables Eye Pencil Kit

I love the shades in this Eye Pencil Kit.  These are shades I reach for consistently so this would be great to have for me. I am always on the hunt for a good waterproof pencil that doesn’t irritate my eyes. I would be willing to give these a go.


  • Black Sea (black)
  • Pebble Beach (brown)
  • Shelly Beach (deep green)
  • Dorado Beach (bronze)

Limited Edition Emerald City Eyeshadow Palette

I know this palette looks super boring but something about it calls to me. I like the inspiration behind it and the shades.


  • Northwest (pale beige w/ silver shimmer)
  • Ferry (warm brown matte)
  • Space Needle (beige matte)
  • Yakima (taupe w/ silver shimmer)

This collection is super dupable and is definitely on the treat yourself side of things but I do really like these items.

Le Signe Du Lion Illuminating Powder

This comes in 2 shades but the Or Blanc shade I think is gorgeous and perfect for fair skin.

Le Volume De Chanel

There are probably dupes for this. I hear this is a good mascara but I was really intrigued by the shade Charactor which is a plummy type of color. I love plum mascara. If you know of a dupe let me know!

Stylo Yeux Waterproof

I hear these are fantastic liners too but I do have a dupe for these. Nyx Faux Black in Black Olive and BlackBerry look pretty much identical to me and those are probably my favorite eyeliners of life.

  • Legendary Green
  • Terra Rossa

Trait De Caractere Eyeshadow Palette

Lastly is the Trait De Caractere Eyeshadow Palette which is my kind of palette! I love these shades and if I had $70 I would buy this in a heartbeat.

Phew, Done with another Lust or Bust. Imma go drink my tea and try to get better. If you want to see more from my Lust or Bust Holiday Collections just hit the Lust or Bust or Holiday 2017 tags.
