Limited Edition #Love Lip Balm Collection
(retail: $2.99 each)

Many thanks to reader @amrb521 on Instagram for this one! 

Revo (made by OraLabs) has just released their limited edition Valentine's Day 2016 collection at Walgreens stores. This one's called the #Love collection, and there are four flavors. This collection is actually hitting stores a little earlier than last year's, which started hitting stores around the first week of February. Also, unlike last year's collection, which was more of a Valentine's Day/Easter combo, this one seems more geared toward Valentine's Day. 

To refresh your memory, last year's Valentine's Day collection contained the following limited edition flavors:

Pink Sugar
Marshmallow Creme
Pink Frosted Cupcake
Chocolate Covered Strawberry

This year's Valentine's Day collection contains the following limited edition flavors:

Cupid's Cherry Cordial
Raspberry Chocolate Truffle
Love-Struck Passion Fruit
Strawberry Striped Cheesecake

@amrb521 was nice enough to share pics of all of the flavors with the caps off, so you can see the colors of each lip balm:

These all sound so yummy to me. Here's hoping we can all find these at our local Walgreens soon. Please let me know in the comments below if you're already spotted these at your local Walgreens!

Thanks again, @amrb521, for the great sighting and pics. I really appreciate it!

  1. I spotted all of these at one of the better Walgreens near me. I was hesitant to buy any because I'd like to check the ingredient list next to the original EOS before buying. If they differ, I'll be buying all of them! I'm not much of a balm person as I've found the more I use one, the more I have to continue to use them because my lips rebound into a dessert otherwise LOL But, with my newfound love of matte lipstick they're a necessary evil :-)

    1. I can confirm that for you.

      he ingredients are quite different between the two brands. You can check out my review of the minis (same formula) here:

      If you're new to Revo, they make their balms under their own house brand (Chap Ice) as well as for Walgreens (Be Well), CVS (Beauty 360),etc. But the ingredients are all generally the same for each retailer (and very different from eos).

  2. I wonder if sales of these will suffer because people will confuse them with EOS.

    1. Funny that you mention that, because EOS and Revo just ended a lengthy court battle about that very thing (packaging design, patents, etc). I didn't really keep up with it all, but I THINK that Revo isn't allowed to make the sphere shape anymore--only the beach ball shape you see above. I think this had to do with the beach ball design being different enough for consumers NOT to get it confused with EOS.

      But don't quote me on any of this--trying reading recaps on a few of those law websites made my head spin and I really don't know the details. Lol!!

    2. I get it. I'm an attorney and it makes my head spin too.

    1. Oh yes, they definitely have a flavor in addition to the fragrance. All of the ones I own are quite yummy. :)

  4. I picked up the butterscotch at Christmas and it is to die for! I like the formula of it way better than the 4 or 5 EOS versions I have tried.

    1. Agreed. I threw away 7 EOS last night, including three I got for Christmas, because they'd already begun to smell funky. REVO never do.

  5. Why could I totally smell these as I was reading the names? Lol.

  6. Phew. Glad I stocked up on chocolate strawberry last year since it isn't included this year.

    It looks like raspberry chocolate truffle will be my jam in this collection.

  7. The raspberry chocolate and passion fruit ones sound amazing!

  8. Does anyone know if the Raspberry Chocolate is a good smelling chocolate? The scent of my Chocolate Melted Lipstick smells so yucky to me. I wonder if they are similar. I do like that the shape has changed a bit. Might keep them from rolling all over.

  9. I think these are so much better than EOS, just creamier and smoother and more hydrating. For me anyway. Gonna be on the lookout for these.

  10. I just got all four at my local Walgreens. The only one I won't open is the passion fruit one because I own the eos passion fruit. The other three are great. Soft scents and accurate, in my opinon. $2.99 each and I was able to apply a coupon from the monthly coupon book.
    Can anyone please compare the cherry cordial with the cherry cola from the summer collection? I missed the xolay one. :-(

  11. I love these sm! i got them all because i have a beauty acc on instagram called @beautywithaleida(shameless self promo lol) anyways, they all smells different from last years expect Pink frosted cupcake 2015 smells similar to Strawberry striped cheesecake 2016 but overall they r vv moisturizing and have amazing scents! y'all should totally check them out!

  12. The cherry cordial is very similar to the Halloween black cat cherry. I think it's even better!

  13. I love these revos! I got them today and I'm in #LOVE!

  14. I just bought my flavors today at a Walgreens in Vienna, VA. I had already stocked up on all the amazingly delicious wintry flavor (my favorite is French Vanilla)...and of the new flavors, Strawberry Striped Cheesecake is out of this world. My hubby can't stop kissing me! ;) I literally have them everywhere in my house..my office, nightstand, purses, bathroom. I love not only how they taste and smell, but how that if I put a coating on before bed, I wake up with a light coating still in the morning, which makes me even more kissable. :) Yay! Best stuff for lips ever, esp. considering they only cost $2.99! :)
