If I had to name one of the first “makeup” products I ever got my hands on, Lip Smacker lip balms come to mind. I could get them at the dollar store, they came in all kinds of flavours and made me feel a little more glamorous as an elementary school girl.
I can’t say I remember exactly when I gave them up, but when I tried the new Mary Kay at Play Triple Layer Tinted Balms I was transported back to the days of listening to the Spice Girls and playing dress up with my sisters, Lip Smacker balm in hand.
Seriously – these are the grown-up version of flavoured lip balms and are loaded with added benefits like hydration, a hint of colour and shine and comfort when wearing. They’re sheer but have enough tint that they dress up your lips, so you can use them over a bit of lipstick or use them solo for just a touch of moisture, colour and shine.
Top – Atomic Red
Bottom – Orange You Lovely
If you’re looking for a balm that goes above and beyond your basic Chapstick or you’re yearning for the days when Lip Smackers were all you knew and needed makeup-wise, definitely check these out – they’re $12.00 CAD and come in four shades, and taste awesome.
