Kitsch Lip Balms Are Totally a Thing at Sephora

Meet Taste Beauty’s Felicia the Flamingo Lip Balm which is a ten dollar lip balm available now at Sephora.com. This happens to be strawberry scented lip balm that hydrates and nourishes dry lips and just happens to come in a flamingo float shaped pot!

Did your brow slowly inch up there?


I had a brief flashback for a second there. I was 8 years old, I was shopping the Oriental Trading Company’s Catalog with my sister for lip balms to include in my gift bags at my birthday.

Sure, I’m as obsessed with cute lip balms as everyone else around here. No shame, I’ve always admitted to owning far too many of them but I admit to be slightly shocked to see such a kitsch-y lip balm on Sephora’s site. Hmmm…!

Speaking of beauty incubators, Taste Beauty is a fairly newish brand (2015) that creates a wide array of different pop culture inspired lip balms. For example, if you ever run across a lip balm scented like your favorite candy at the .99 cent store, Taste Beauty is likely responsible for it’s production.

So yeah, this was a little weird to see at Sephora. Ulta adds MAC, NARS, and Cover FX to their line up, Sephora adds flamingo shaped lip balms. Yes, eye brows are raising now! Cute, but an odd pick for Sephora.

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.

    I’m usually all about cute and kitschy, but this pink flamingo isn’t doing it for me. It just seems unnecessarily bulky, not to mention kind of pricey!

    How fun! But afraid to look like a ridiculous old lady wearing it. So cute though I would eventually fall for it.
    Couldn’t find the chapstic from (forgot?) the tea brand at Big Lots but instead found lots of LA Girl eyeshadow and hauled one if each for fun! Well, they are turning out nice especially a gold bronze first one to try. They have tons of Revlon lipsticks also in nice cool shades for the season! Someone tied me up or I’ll go back for more. Also some Elf colors and brushes. Great deals!

    Too bad I apply lip products on the go. This would be cute to take out of my bag and show off but inconvenient to use without a lip brush.
