Anyway, that convo begat the discussion of BONNE BELL LIP SMACKERS, a beloved childhood fave I still cherish. Also, tangent, having grown up in Northeastern Ohio, I remember once on a camp field trip they TOOK US ON A TRIP TO THE BONNE BELL FACTORY! The only thing I remember taking away from that trip is some 1980s "beauty expert" lady told us that instead of scraping the inside of a tube of mascara, you should roll the tube between your hands to create heat, which causes the product to stick to the wand. Weird, right? Accurate? Who knows.
Anyway, like probably 20 years later, I still love the fun colors and smells and super cheapiness (you can afford like 20 at once!) of Lip Smackers. I love getting them a mini giftie add-on or as a gift all by itself. Is there anything more squeetastic? Such a happy, cheap little "treasure," as Makeup Loves Me's Marina would say. Anyone remember the BIG huge Orange Crush ones? The ones that were the size and width of toilet paper rolls? (That wasn't a nasty germ risk or anything!)
So, for some reason, I actually get Lip Smacker emails (the little tubes themselves send them out from little flavored computers made of wax!), which take you to the Bonne Bell site where you can buy TONS of Lip Smackers for like NOTHING. Because what's better than buying ONE of something? BUYING EIGHT of something!

I'm slightly disheartened they don't have the Jumbo Peppermint one, but they do have a one-hitter!
