EOS’s darling Alice in Wonderland Lip Balm Set has proven a little tricky to locate for me. It was supposed to be at Target as of September and following up with a release at Walgreens and Ulta in November with online locations such as Target.com, Walmart.com, and Drugstore.com launching it as of November as well.
However, no matter how hard I tried I was never successful finding it at Target! Any luck for you?
You’ll be happy to know that it’s slowing starting to trickle into stores now and I’ve seen it at both Ulta and Target finally as well as online at Ulta.com
This very delightful set was inspired by Disney’s Alice in Wonderland and includes a trio of full size EOS Lip Balm Spheres.
Take a look!
This is a darling set and launched at just the right time for gifting. The set is priced at a reasonable $7.99 so it’s the perfect little budget stocking stuffer or Secret Santa gift. Typically EOS Lip Balms are $2.99 to $3.29 so this is like getting one balm free considering the set includes three full size balms.
Although the balms aren’t actually Alice themed the box they come in is. After removing the balms the backdrop of the packaging shows a scene from the Mad Tea Party and a quote that reads, “Very few things indeed were really impossible.” The outer packaging is sky blue with tiny Alice prints in the background. I wish this cute packaging extended to the balms themselves but sadly the balms are your standard EOS packaging.
If you’ve never used an EOS Lip Balm Sphere before you’re in for a treat. These are a domed shaped lip balm which smooth on lips easily. They have a balm-y texture and leave lips nicely hydrated although not overly moisturized. The finish has a balminess to it so they feel a little heavier on lips like any lip balm would. I wouldn’t say they provide intense moisture but they keep lips very nicely hydrated throughout the wear.
The set includes three flavors:
- Blueberry Potion (Has a very subtle blueberry flavor that’s sweet and fruity!)
- Watermelon Wonderland (Comparable to EOS Summer Fruit flavor with a hint of watermelon bubblegum in the backdrop.
- Sweet Vanilla Nonsense (Very subtle vanilla, a little plastic-y but not so much it makes the balm unpleasant to use).
Overall, if you’re an Alice in Wonderland fan I’m sure you’ll want this set, that’s a given! If you enjoy EOS Lip Balms this is an excellent way to get three of them at a very good price plus cash in on some very cute packaging. There are enough balms here to have one on your end table by your bed, one in your desk drawer, and perhaps one in your makeup bag! I was a little disappointed the packaging didn’t extend to the actual balms (update: thanks to a reader for pointing out there’s a little Mickey shape indented into the side of each balm! Ha! I didn’t notice that!) but overall this is a really cute set with some very nice lip balms to enjoy.
Muse Approved for purchase!
A most excellent stocking stuffer or small gift for friends and family as well.
