When I was younger I used to go everywhere with my hair whipped back in a ponytail, lashings of mascara and a slick of lip balm. I used to own flavours upon flavours, with cherry and strawberry always being my favourites out of the bunch.
Recently I was hit with a little bit of nostalgia when Lip Smackers got in touch and asked me if I wanted to try out a few of their flavours. With Panga just heading off to secondary school and me always wanting a lip product in my bag I instantly said yes as I knew we would put them to good use.
When the package arrived I was in serious awe of all the different flavours; Coca Cola Cherry, Coca Cola Lemon, Coca Cola, Skittles Berry Burst, Skittles Lemon & Lime, Sprite, Chupa Chups Orange, Starburst Strawberry & Banana and Starburst Orange. We were definitely in for a good old treat with this mix of flavours.
The flavours are so great and I can confirm that they all taste exactly how they should. The Coca Cola Cherry one is spot on par with the drink as is the Sprite, my favourite however has to be the Starburst Strawberry & Banana for how sweet and juicy it is. All the Lip Smackers are extremely moisturising and give a lovely sheen to the lips, keeping them hydrated for quite a few hours. I absolutely adore them and so does Tapanga, although she’s partial to the Chupa Chups Orange… I’ve seen they do it in Strawberry and Cream so I am definitely going to pick that one up, it’s my favourite lolly of all time!.
Over all they are really great and bring a really fun twist on lip care, they are especially great for a teen or pre-teen who is just getting into make up or wanting to take care of their lips too.
