I know that our former editor-in-chief Lilit has written on her love of lip balm, but I’m a strictly non-flavored kind of gal. The most I can handle is the peppermint Burt’s Bees chapstick, which is why this Girl Scout cookies-flavored set from Lip Smackers just doesn’t sit well with me.
The entire set costs only $5, which is about what a box goes for, so it’s certainly tempting. But there’s something about flavored lip balm that makes my mind boomerang back to when I was six, flu-ridden, and had to drink cherry-flavored medicine. It’s just so artificially sweet! I have it in my head that tasting anything less than the real deal would ruin it down the line. And the forthcoming liquid lip gloss versions? Blech.
Might I suggest other cookie-themed items, like your very own sew-on badge, a dog collar, or scented stick-ons?
