Spotted: Revlon Fall/Winter 2014 Boho Chic Collection by Gucci Westman

(UPDATED 8/27/14, 5:15PM Pacific. Additional photos and info have been added to this post.)

It's that time, Revlon fans! The Fall 2014 Gucci Westman Collection has landed.

Many thanks to longtime reader Amanda of Fashion Footing blog for this one. Amanda spotted this collection at her local Meijer, which sometimes gets things a few weeks before other retailers. If you can't find this one in your area yet, just hold tight because it's only a matter of time before this is everywhere (Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS, etc.).

HOT Too Faced deal (today only, 8/27)

I received a great tip from my pal Lisa of Swatchesandwhatnot blog today and you know I had to share:

Right now on the Too Faced site they're having a summer clearance blowout, but what makes this even better is that there's a free shipping code to go along with it. Enter code PRETTYPACKAGE at checkout to receive free shipping on any $25+ order. This code is good TODAY ONLY (8/27), so hurry with the plotting before everything sells out.

Thanks again, Lisa, for this tip!

The Maybelline Color Sensational Creamy Mattes Have Landed

They're here! They're here! If you caught my last post about the new Color Sensational Matte Lipstick line (permanent, NOT limited edition), then you know that the empty wall display was popping up at Rite Aid a while back. If your Rite Aid hasn't filled it up yet, they should be doing so very soon! And guess what? They're landing at both Walgreens and Target right now, too.

Many thanks to reader Amy (@deals_on_heels on Instagram) for the following pic of the display she spotted at her Target this week:

As you can see, this display is on the top shelf of the permanent Maybelline section, where Target usually puts the new goodies. Exciting, right? If you would like a closer look at the shade names (with descriptions), check out my original post HERE.

Have you spotted the Color Sensational Creamy Mattes in your area yet? 

Thanks again, Amy, for the great sighting and pic!

I'd like my Slurpee with a side of e.l.f., please

Over the past several years, we've seen e.l.f. broaden its distribution to Target, Walmart, Kmart, Big Lots, Dollar Tree, Walgreens, CVS, various grocery retailers, etc. But now your access to e.l.f. is getting even easier!

Thanks to reader Betty J. of My Girlish Ways blog for this one:

Review: NEW L.A. Colors 6-Color Eyeshadow Palette in Haute

Lots of new L.A. Colors products have been popping up at Dollar Tree in the last few months, including new lip colors and shadows. I purchased a few of the new lip products and also this new 6-pan a couple of weeks ago, and today I'd like to share my thoughts with you (I'll be reviewing the lip products at a later date). L.A. Colors has also released a new Cover Up! Pro Concealer, which you can now find at Family Dollar. I don't have a Family Dollar in my area, so hopefully this shows up at Dollar Tree eventually. I can't wait to try it.

If you're unfamiliar with L.A. Colors, you can find a nice assortment of their products at Dollar Tree for, of course, $1 each. Lots of independent dollar stores and beauty supply stores also carry L.A. Colors, and Kmart has a nice selection as well (you can also occasionally find limited edition colections at Rite Aid). You can also purchase their products directly from the L.A. Colors website and also on Cherry Culture.
