1998-christmasHope everyone is having/had a great holiday!

I thought it was time to dig out a set that I’m sure a lot of people have heavy nostalgia about; the 1998 Christmas set!

It was old-school perfection, right? Charms, chains, and that awesome, unbridled cosmic glitter. Even the caps had a light dusting of shimmer πŸ˜€



On left from top to bottom there is Cranberry, the lovely Golden Pear, and Grape Gum Drop. On right, Sugar Plum, Merry Berry, and the yummy Candy Cane formula that eludes their similar scents today.

I was always a bit partial to Golden Pear, though.


Here are some photos of the gorgeous ‘Utterly Ariel’ shimmer collection!










6 shimmer Smackers are included. They are classic flavors though a couple have a cute spin on the name:

* Calypso Berry
* Cotton Candy Castle (aww)
* Bubble Gum
* Marshmallow Wish
* Vanilla Lights
* Strawberry Stars

If you like their glittery balms then you will definitely like this set. I think Marshmallow Wish is my favorite this time around, though it’s impossible to ignore their Strawberry stuff πŸ˜€


The new artwork is lovely. I really like the details on Marshmallow and Vanilla’s designs–


lip-smacker-ariel-2013I mentioned in an older post that there are a few Holiday tins. I think a Daisy/Minnie tin and a Milkshake themed tin paired with the new retro smackers.

If you bought them please feel free to share pics! The tins alone are worth having, they’re well made and look cute with everything.

I can’t say for sure where these are available since I bought them online buuut hopefully they’ll be on the webstore with the other Holiday stuff.
