Beauty Most Unusual: Vaseline Marmite Lip Therapy

Vaseline Marmite Lip Therapy

Marmite an acquired taste if there every was one.

You either love it or you hate, or so I’m told. I happen to love it but I’m also positive I was British in my other life.

Vegemite was banned in the US and rumor has it Marmite was as well at one time. Don’t you love spreads that the FTC deems unsuitable for consumption? It’s like eating blow fish! I like to live dangerously and eat Marmite on toast, I’m so damn adventurous!

Now I sometimes have to have my Marmite fix but I’m not sure it extends to smearing it on my lips.

Well Vaseline doesn’t doubt that there are some really hardcore Marmite fan girls out there because they have a new lip therapy, that’s, you guessed it, Marmite flavored.

I imagine Marmite flavored lip balm will have all sorts of raves and rants as much as the condiment itself has. This lip balm is not only flavored like Marmite but sports a brown shimmering color so it looks like the real deal too plus it’s 100% Vegan!

Vaseline Marmite Lip Therapy Lip Balm

As much as I love Marmite I’m going to throw this one into the Beauty Most Unusual bin.

Your thoughts?

Team Marmite?

Team No Freaking Way!

What’s your thoughts?

Mmm now I’m hungry for a spot of toast and Marmite!

For the confused, please see more about Marmite at its Wiki Page.

    I’ve never had it, but I think I’d like it. I love nutritional yeast (also called brewers yeast) on my popcorn. It’s delish! Maybe I’ll have to hunt some down!

      Winni, that’s how I eat my popcorn! Butter, brewers yeast and spike :). I love that someone else does this as well. And Muse, well played. I suspected a joke but only because I’ve been seeing them all over facebook this morning :).

    Haha! Sadly lip balm has been made in flavors like bacon or cheez-its, for real, marmite is actually a bit less revolting :)

    • 4/1/11 11:22 the Muse:

      ha BACON lip balm Sarah! Crazy about bacon products lmao!

    After my local grocery store was remolded it boasts a bigger ethnic section, including Vegemite! Every time I see it I want to buy the container to try, but I’m scared it will be horrible.

    • 4/1/11 12:31 the Muse:

      vegemite is actually pretty good I do prefer marmite though Kate ;-D has a bolder flavor ;D!

    LOL @ the “100% vegan” part. I almost — almost — didn’t realize this was a joke, as I’m reading it for the first time on April 3rd and have fully come out of my “TRUST NO ONE!” mindset over the past 48 hours. But I wouldn’t be surprised if there actually was a market for a product like this somewhere in the world! Nice packaging design ;)

    • 4/4/11 13:26 the Muse:

      hehe becca ;-D I wouldn’t either, I’d prob seriously consider a buy if there was ;D!
