Lip Smacker Vault


  During the holidays I was always SO excited to get a Lip Smacker cane or tin in my stocking (seriously my favorite part of opening gifts) but check out this 42 piece Lip Smacker Vault they surprised us with for Cyber Monday! Can you imagine being gifted with this!? It's very limited from what I am told, so grab it here while you can. There are 36 Original & Best (some novelty, vintage and cupcake) Lip Smackers and 6 Biggies! Here is the breakdown of what comes in it:

Original & Best singles: 
Vanilla, Watermelon, Dr. Pepper, Berry Peach, Bubble Gum, Cherry, Cotton Candy, Tropical Punch, Mango, Strawberry Cotton Candy, Kiwi, Wild Raspberry, Orange Sherbet, Pina Colada, Strawberry Cheesecake, Ice Cream Cake, Strawberry Watermelon, Cookie Dough, Strawberry Vanilla, Strawberry Glaze, Strawberry Frosting, Strawberry Banana, Sour Apple, Sour Grapes, Cinnamon Sugar, Caramel Corn, Grape Jelly, Ice Cream Sandwich, Red Velvet, Berry Buttercream, Birthday Cake, Strawberry Sprinkle, Cherry Snow Cone, Blueberry Pancake, Maple Bacon, Salted Pretzel

Biggies: 
Cotton Candy, Vanilla Cream Soda, Watermelon, Dr. Pepper, Strawberry, Black Cherry


This is a great way to stock up on all of your favorites for yourself, buy it for a fellow Lip Smacker/lip balm fiend or break them up and add them onto multiple gifts and keep the vault for your own Lip Smacker storage.  I know any one I know doesn't go without getting a Lip Smacker added on to their gift ;). I hope next year Markwins will add exclusive flavors you can only get in the vault.

Chocolate Hazelnut



 In 2014, Lip Smacker released a special-edition rotating flavor every 3 months (quarterly), giving us brand-new, never before done Lip Smacker flavors. Chocolate Hazelnut appeared late that fall in all its Nutella inspired decadent glory. Leave it up to Lip Smacker to be the first to innovate a Nutella-esque flavor to tempt you to wear on your lips all day- no more dipping a spoon it the jar! Chocolate Hazelnut is a rich and creamy flavor and a good balance of both chocolate and hazelnut, very true to its namesake. Although it is no longer sold in stores, I wouldn't be surprised to see it make a reappearance in future collections as I don't see the Nutella trend going anywhere any time soon.

Peppermint


40+ years of Peppermint Lip Smackers, from every decade since the 1970's

The Peppermint Lip Smacker debuted for holiday 1976 in original Biggy-size and was quickly a favorite to the masses! Long before Burts Bee's, was the super-cooling, tingly and intense peppermint flavor of this iconic Lip Smacker. There have been many different delicious peppermint variations of Lip Smackers over the years but the original has stayed the same up until the 2014 'Flashback Favorites' 1970's trio, featured alongside Peach and Piece-a-Cake. Us loyalists quickly realized that the formula did not smell anything like the original. I created this as a homage as well as a plea for Markwins to bring back the original super-strong and cooling peppermint flavor many of us love and miss!
