So I think I might be the only person in the world who hasn’t watched Frozen yet, but what I do know is that I adore Lip Smackers. I’ve been a little obsessed with them since I was teeny-tiny. When I was 5 or 6 most people in the UK had never heard of the brand, so whenever I hit the US I stocked up on them to a somewhat ridiculous degree. Since then, there’s been a steady stream of Lip Smackers in my stash and new for Christmas, they are releasing 6 new lip balms representing each of Frozen’s main characters.
I got to try out Sven (the moose) which is Berry Slush and Olaf (the snowman) which is coconut balls. Like all Lip Smackers balms, they are incredibly moisturising and really work to combat winter dryness.
Sven Berry Crush is a blue lip balm which smells super fruity. It’s definitely a blue jolly rancher type of fragrance and is super fun to use. Even though the balm itself is blue, it doesn’t tint the lips.
Olaf the Snowman is Coconut Ball scented, and it’s definitely a favourite fragrance. It isn’t too holiday-ish or tropical, but instead it’s a slightly deeper, more coco butter scent. Since the balm is completely clear and doesn’t give off any sort of sheen, it’s perfect for no-makeup days, and I’ve also been using it as a moisturising base for my MAC Snob lipstick (here) which tends to be a little drying.
I am obsessed with these new Lip Smackers, and they are available at Claire’s for £2.49 each.
