Remember Bonne Bell Lip Smackers? I don’t know about you, but I could not live without the things from high school right through the end of university. I had my “daytime” Lip Smacker, which was sans colour, and my “nighttime” Lip Smacker—Dr. Pepper, of course—which imparted just the barest hint of red tint to your lips. Keep in mind that I went to one of those schools were it was trendy to wear hospital pants and pajama bottoms as daywear, so you could say it took me a while to figure out the concept of actual lip gloss, let alone all the other fun stuff I now slap on my face daily.
Still, old habits die hard, and lately, I’ve found myself loving Green Beaver‘s new and improved version of the Lip Smacker. These are called Organic Lip Shimmers, and Passion, the deepest shade, is better than anything Bonne Bell ever did. The colour is richer (but still not over the top), the balm more moisturizing, and the scent… it literally makes my mouth water. Like juicy fresh cranberries—which is appropriate, given cranberry seed extract is in the formula. Of course, it’s also certified organic, which always wins points with me.
