This picture made me hungry.

Strawberry: fruity, delicious, refreshing but still luxe. Perfect for layering, combining and continues to be full of surprises with every reinvention. It’s the flavor that started it all, drawing in a generation of lip smackin’ lovers. And it’s hard to imagine anything else being more versatile isn’t it? Not only the the iconic lip balm, but the mama of all balms 🙂 So in celebration of National Strawberry Month I plan on revisiting my (slowly dwindling!) stockpile of Strawberry Cupcake which also happens to be one of my most used flavors of all time.

What is everyone else’s favorite Strawberry flavor? Do you prefer it simple or with a twist?

Here are some fun 90’s Easter-related goodies I dug up that I thought I would share!


This cute little collection came with Easter themed tattoos! Flavors: Jelly Bean, Bubble Gum, Raspberry Chocolate, Passion Fruit


Check out the matching crayons! The back says “Have a hip-hoppity Happy Easter with SMACKS of fun flavored lip gloss. DON’T FORGET! Color and send in your cool kickin’ color creation. You could win tons of fun lip smackin’ stuff!” 🙂

Flavors: Jelly Bean, Pink Lemonade, Bubble Gum


These Friendship Collectibles are some of my favorite Smacker products <3 Check out Passion Fruit and her lovable doggy, Kiwi on this Pink Chocolate flavored lip gloss.

The back says “Kiwi is a silly dog who loves to make Passion Fruit laugh. Passion Fruit can’t help but giggle whenever she sees Kiwi wearing bunny ears.” Aww.


Here’s a yummy Wild Berry Jellybean lip gloss, featuring Starfruit and her pet monkey, Muffin.

Muffin the Monkey is adventurous and full of energy. Muffin loves to paint Easter eggs and give them to Starfruit as a special gift.


Bubble Gum and her pet bunny Sugar are too adorable with their Bubblegum Egg gloss.

Sugar the Bunny is sweet, kind, and very cuddly. Bubble Gum and Sugar both love pretty things, like flowers, butterflies, and Easter baskets.


Cupcake the kitty and her owner Candy Confetti are one of my favorites. This “fun flavored shiner” comes in Marshmallow Chick flavor. And just look at the wittle chicks at the bottom 🙂

Cupcake the cat is clever, curious, and loves attention. Cupcake loves to get into things. Once she broke one of Candy Confetti’s large Easter eggs.

Easter really has become such a big holiday for Lip Smacker. And not just for regular smackers, either; while we’ve been seeing a lot of Disney releases for awhile now, the number has really shot up. I’m talkin’ 12 Disney Lip Smackers alone this spring! Whether you’re a ‘purist’ or not ( 🙂 ) there’s some fun flavors to be found that’ll help us say bye-bye to winter (finally). I think I was able to get a hold of most everything, though it’s getting increasingly hard to keep track!

Markwins sent me one of the eggs with a few yummy smackers inside:


This egg features Sugared Marshmallow Treat, Cotton Candy Fun, and S’more Smores Please. I’m always happy with a good smores flavor, and marshmallow is one of the few shimmers this year. I noticed the labels had some really cute fonts this year, too.



It looks like most of the non-Easter smackers are available in tubes and plastic eggs as usual, while the Disney varieties are available in themed bags.

If you’re a key chain collector then you’ll definitely want to hunt stores for the little chick and bunny topper (I mean just look at those lil flowers and red cheeks)

Below is a list of flavors I’ve found so far. If I’ve missed something, please let me know!

Sugared Marshmallow Treat (shimmer)
Plumberry Melody (shimmer)
Chick-a-Dee Cream Puff (shimmer)
Bunny Mint Delight (shimmer)
Cotton Candy Fun
S’more Smores Please
Lemon Tart Surprise
Choco-Coco Whip
Caramel Apple-Hunt
Nutty Brittle
Yummy Mint-Hop
Peachy Cottontail
Creamy Chocolate Bunny
Grape Jelly Hop
Sweet Tweet


Sweets & Smiles
Scrumptious Cupcake
Say Cheese-Cake!
Yummy Bubble Kisses

Rambunctious Raspberry
Delectable Dynamic Duo
Icy Truffle Treat
Frozen Lemonade Slushy

Adventurous Jelly Bean
Buttercream Dream
Courageous Strawberry Swirl
Curious Raspberry

There is definitely a big mix of flavor types this time around, from bakery scents to fruit salads, and of course a lot of staple flavors re-imagined with an Easter design. I find myself reaching for Nutty Brittle, Plumberry Melody, Icy Truffle Treat, and Choco-Coco Whip a lot. Sweet Tweet and Peachy Cottontail win for cutest flavor names, though 😀

What are your spring-time favorites?

I was finally able to put together what I think are all the holiday smackers, with the help of Markwins,, and good old eBay. They never did appear anywhere locally for me so I’m pleased I was able to find them online easily this time around.

There are a lot! Like a lot, alot. A lot a lot. They range from classic flavors to returning favorites and some fun new novelties that I think are really well done.

Warning: tons of picture spam ahead!



Marshmallow Pop
Ribbon Candy
Gum Drop
Whipped Eggnog
Sugar Plum
Holiday Punch
Marshmallow Crisp
Candy Cane
Creamy Peppermint
Caramel Cider
Snowflake Cocoa
Pralines & Cream
Peppermint Frappe



Whew! I’m glad to see Butterscotch, Caramel Cider, and Ribbon Candy back. I like this version of Sugar Plum too, as it leans toward floral but stays sweet enough to avoid being overwhelming. Pralines & Cream smells like a mix of the various flavors but there is a minor nutty note that comes through. Overall the name is a bit too ambitious. The marshmallow flavors are as expected, so if you’re a fan of that scent you’ll like these.


I always love the shimmers and this year the sparkly set comes in Buttercream Frosting, Sugar Star Cookie, White Choco Cranberry, Gingerbread Girl, and Peppermint Macaroon. White Choco Cranberry is great, and I hope they continue making even more macaroon flavors!




Admittedly I am starting to have trouble distinguishing the holiday designs in recent years as they look very similar. I’d love to see the art kicked up a notch next year, but for now the new novelties make up for it 🙂



The Mistletoe Kisses collection is worth picking up for Blackberry Cream and of course Cranberry Jelly (love all of the Cranberry smackers recently!). This set also includes another Buttercream and Gingerbread.

I like the art and think it’s an improvement over last year’s.


If you have Frozen fever still, you’ll be happy to see the new party pack and liquid glosses. If you don’t, well, you are missing out! I really think this pack has some of the best flavors.


Balms: Mint to Be Together, Strawberry Glow, Frozen Banana Pop, Vanilla Snowcone, Plum Berry Tart, Orange Creme Delight, and Blueberry Icy Pop.

Liquids: White Sugar Sprinkle, Raspberry Sorbet, Snowflake Sugar Cookie, Apple Pie A-La Mode, and Cool Strawberry Glaze.

Banana of any kind is always done right and this version is a good one. Plum Berry Tart is a delicious mix of Sugar Plum and Blackberry. The orange is the yummy, creamy orange dreamsicle flavor, and it’s crazy delicious as usual. Their recent blueberry formula is as close to the original as we’ve seen yet so it’s a welcome sight in this pack. Really there’s not a bad flavor in the bunch and the scents are a refreshing change from the heavier holiday flavors.

Last but not least, the Naughty & Nice collections! We must have been very nice this year because these are just too cute:



The Nice collection features N’ice Cream, Sweet Whip Cream, Angel Food Cake, and Goody Goody Gum Drop. The colors and art are lovely and they really feel classic too, similar to some of the releases in the early-mid 2000s.


The Naughty set has Devil’s Food Cake (love it!), Naughty Toffee, Decadent Dirt Pudding, and Sour Apple Pie. My favorite of the bunch is Decadent Dirt Pudding which is a perfect balance of fruity fudge.

This collection really is awesome and I love the contrasting/matching sets they’ve been doing lately. I hope we see this much creativity next Halloween!

I’ll be posting about Sriracha, Horchata, Chillerz, and the new Tropicals soon so hang in there 🙂
