Lip Smackers: The Perfect Stocking Fillers

I must admit that I'm kinda old-school when Disney cartoons/movies are in question and I do prefer older releases but some of the newer releases do warm up my heart and teleport me back to the child at heart that I am! Now, Frozen tends to be one of those things you either love or hate but you cannot deny that the success it has had is absolutely incredible! I think Disney was clueless in a way and even they could not have been able to predict how huge Frozen would be!

Lip Smackers are a lip balm brand that dates all the way back to 1973. and I have known about the brand before through TV commercials and cartoons – basically, for people worldwide (but especially in the US), Lip Smackers were the gateway to makeup. Every nineties child knew about them and hoarded these colorful and delicious smelling lip balms. 

For these two reasons stated above, I was extremely happy to know that the brand is finally and officially available in Bosnia. Husband's little sister was ecstatic about the Disney Frozen Lip Smackers (approx $3) – I have a feeling most young ladies were. Available in Olof (coconut snowballs,) Sven (Berry Slush,) Anna (strawberry shake,) Kristoff (ice pop,) Elsa (cool vanilla mint) and an Elsa-Anna combo (chilled cranberry grape). All the scents are very much seasonally appropriate. They all apply sheer, smell absolutely delicious and sweet. Hydration-wise, I'd say they offer light hydration and care – frequent reapplying will happen but due to the colorful packaging and mostly due to yummy scent, that won't be a chore.

  • Moram priznati da sam pomalo old-school kada su Disney filmovi u pitanju i vise volim crtane iz starije produkcije ali naidje poneki noviji crtic koji mi ugrije srce i vrati me u djetinjstvo. Frozen je jedna od onih stvari koje cete voljeti ili vam se uopste nece dopasti ali mislim da niko ne moze osporiti koliki je uspjeh zabiljezio i koliku popularnost uziva. Nekada pomislim da ni sam Disney studio nije mogao pretpostaviti koliko ce ljudi i djeca zavoljeti Frozen!
  • Lip Smacker balzami za usne datiraju jos od davne 1973. godine i licno sam za njih cula kada sam bila osnovac, putem TV reklama i putem crtica – oni su za vecinu ljudi (pogotovo na teritoriji SAD-a) bili pocetna stepenica u svijetu sminke. Svako dijete iz devedesetih godina je znalo za njih i masovno sakupljalo razlicite mirise i okuse.
  • Iz ova dva razloga koja sam navela, iskreno sam se obradovala vijesti da je ovaj brend napokon i zvanicno dostupan u BiH. Suprugova mala sestra se jako obradovala Disney Frozen Lip Smackersima (kostaju 5.95KM u cm-u) – vjerujem da je takav slucaj sa svim mladim damama. Okusi/mirisi koji su nam dostupni su Olof (coconut snowballs,) Sven (Berry Slush,) Anna (strawberry shake,) Kristoff (ice pop,) Elsa (cool vanilla mint) i Elsa-Anna kombinacija (chilled cranberry grape). Svi su jako prigodni ovom periodu godine. Na usnama su prozirni a mirisi su bez premca slasni! Po pitanju hidratacije nude laganu njegu – cesto nanosenje tokom dana ce se desavati ali zbog veselog pakovanja i odlicnih mirisa, vjerujem da to nece predstavljati problem.

If this got you all excited, wait – there's another childhood staple mixed with Lip Smackers which hits even closer to home for me. Chupa Chups Ball Lip Smackers (approx $4) have totally enamoured me and they're regular residents of my bag ever since I've tried them. What a blast from the past! Chupa Chups lollipops (choco and vanilla, cherry and strawberry cream are my fave!), chewing gums, Melody Pops and Crazy Dips definitely remain at the top of my fave treats from when I was a kid (bad for your teeth, I know). 

Interestingly enough, I have two Chupa Chups Lip Smacker flavors/scents which were not my faves in lollipop form but they're soo, so good as lip balms! Strawberry and watermelon are summery scents but oh my! Even though they both smell heavenly, watermelon is my fave! Everyone I know went nuts for watermelon which really is a mouthwatering scent – they did it so well! I'm glad to report that these lip balms have a non-sticky texture, they apply almost sheer (with a slight reddish tinge) and are actually rather nourishing. I keep one in my everyday bag, one in my gym bag and one by my bed because this guy really does deliver some serious hydration levels.

Which is you favorite Lip Smacker aroma?

  • Ako vam je ovo odlicna vijest, cekajte – jos jedna nezaobilazna nostalgija iz djetinjstva je spojena sa Lip Smacker balzamima a meni je mozda i malo bliza srcu. Chupa Chups Ball Lip Smackersi (kostaju 7,10KM u cm-u) su me potpuno osvojili i ne odvajam se od njih otkako sam ih isprobala. Nevjerovatno me uhvatila nostalgija, podsjetili su me na toliko dobrih sjecanja dok sam bila djevojcurak! Chupa Chups lizala su mi bila omiljena (cokolada i vanilija, tresnja i kombinacija jagoda/slag su mi najdrazi okusi), potom zvakace gume, Melody Pops lizalice/pistaljke, Crazy Dips lizala koja se umoce u pucketavi secerni prah – mozda su losi za zube ali su bili neizmjeran izvor zabave i nose jako lijepe uspomene.
  • Interesantno je da mi tada okusi jagode i lubenice u lizalima nisu bili omiljeni ali su me zato kao balzami oborili sa nogu! Mozda vise odgovaraju ljetnoj sezoni ali super su mirisljavi – gotovo da pozelite da ih pojedete. Moj je favorit definitivno lubenica – svakoga koga znam sam ‘zarazila’ njom. Svidja mi se sto ovi balzami nisu ljepljivi, nanose se gotovo prozirno ali ostave blago ruzicasto/crvenkasti trag i iznenadjujuce lijepo njeguju usne. Jednu Chupa Chups Lip Smacker lopticu drzim u svojoj torbi za svaki dan, jednu u torbi za trening i jos jednu pored kreveta.

      Jelena, postoji cijeli svijet sitnica iz 90-tih kojima sam bila opsjednuta a koje bih podijelila sa tobom! 😀
      Devedesete su dekada koja mi je najdraza po pitanju muzike, kinematografije, stila, komercijalne kulture, trendova itd. Poslije devedesetih najvise volim osamdesete i mogu ti reci da se sve teze snalazim u svemu sto je "in" jos od 2010. godine. Totalno sam ostala u proslom periodu.
      Ja se ispricah, a nisi me ni pitala haha – ne zamjeri! 😀
      Uglavnom, Lip Smacker balzamcici su veliki dio tinejdzerske mainstream "kulture" u SAD-u i neka vrsta inicijacije u makeup world. Dr.Pepper je jedan od najpopularnijih "okusa" i znam da je ovaj brend prosao akviziciju zbog cega su mnogi u SAD-u poludjeli misleci da ce se balzami prestati proizvodili ali izgleda da brend prolazi samo makeuover u smislu ovih saradnji. Eto, toliko od mene – time to shut up 😀
