Lip Smacker Vintage Flavors Party Pack Lip Glosses

Ok, so, I think everyone can agree that the first Lip Smacker you likely remember is bubble gum. All agreed? If I close my eyes I can remember when I was around 7 years old the smell of that hard, stale ass piece of gum in a pack of baseball cards (I used to collector baseball cards as a child). It was an addicting sweet fruity sugary scent with a very, very slight spiciness. If I squeeze my eyes closed even harder I can remember my first Lip Smacker tasting and smelling exactly like that stick of gum.

That’s the very first Lip Smacker flavor I remember!

Which was your first?

Bonne Bell actually officially shut its doors recently but it was brought back from the grave when it was purchased by another company. So that lip balm you likely ate as a child will be around, hopefully, for a very, very long time. Stop shaking your head like you never ate a Lip Smacker in your life, I call lies!

To celebrate Bonne Bell’s new leash on life many vintage flavors from way in the day are being re-released.

This Lip Smacker Vintage Flavors Lip Balms Set includes several vintage flavors that I have to admit I don’t think I ever tried. Could be pre-Muse era!

It includes:

  • Strawberry Shortcake
  • Coconut Cake
  • Cinnamon Sugar
  • Cherry Cobbler
  • Caramel Corn
  • Grape Jelly
  • Sprinkle Donut
  • Sour Apple

So bring home your childhood or gift this cute set to the child in your life!

Available now at amazon.com.

Feel free to share your Lip Smacker memories!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment.

    I will ALWAYS love Lip Smackers and am still broken hearted after Bonne Bell sold the brands to Markwins. I’ve never used much or ever been interested in the brands they carry-Wet ‘n Wild, etc. and was even more depressed when I heard they were the ones acquiring Bonne Bell and Lip Smacker. There is so much history behind the brands and I’ve used them for decades. Now that Markwins had taken over I’m already noticing very sloppy oversights in some of the products. Too be honest, besides Revlon, Bonne Bell and Lip Smackers are the only drugstore brands I follow so this is still devastating. Anyway, I’m rambling. These flavors are great, especially Caramel Corn. I remember receiving a jumbo sized Caramel Corn Lip Smacker for Christmas in 1978 from my aunt, so memories were flowing when I saw they brought it back. Unfortunately Cinnamon Sugar is not as great as it used to be. The formula is very weak and needs to be improved. You can still order Lip Smackers direct from their website and can order flavors individually and stock up on you favorites. I’m keeping my eyes open for this years holiday flavors- Markwins is very late getting these to stores this year.

      There is still real Bonne Bell stock to be had in stores – often grocery stores are the best bet – just be sure to check the back of the package. Markwins, uuggggghhh.

    I remember my friends mom always had the Dr. Pepper, which if you ask me gives a similar hue to Clinque’s black honey shade.

    I think my first was Strawberry…I also remember Jelly Bean, which I got for Easter way back when. (And speaking of eating, I never sampled my Lip Smackers, but I vividly remember digging my little fingers into my mom’s Avon Dew Kisses balm when her back was turned. And no, Dew Kisses are not scented/flavored. Yes, it tasted like wax, and yes, I was a weird child!)

      LOL you’re not alone I ate an entire cherry lipstick when I was like 6 or something!

    Bubble Gum was my first flavor of Lip Smackers but I don’t remember any of these scents. I do remember having watermelon and strawberry. LOVED!

        They’re not. They’re just calling it vintage as a marketing ploy. (Once again, Markwins, uuugggghhh.) Many of the flavors back in the day were brand tie-ins like Lemon Tree lemonade and Orange Crush. I’ve been buying these since the 70s and I assure you, there was no “sprinkle donut” running around. Here’s the ads listing all the flavors.
