I thought I would continue the summer theme and take a pic of the Sun Swirl duo in flavors Kiwi Berry Splash and Tropical Raspberry Blast.
These are also SPF 24 and come with the keyring caps. On the bottom of the tubes it says they expired in early 2004.
I love the formula on these and they have a really, really strong scent – Kiwi Berry Splash smells like sugar plum with a hint of kiwi, which is better than it sounds, and Tropical Raspberry Blast is sort of raspberry meets pineapple. Surprisingly sweet and tart.
I’ve also updated the blog’s layout and added a search bar so it is easier to find info!
In celebration of summer being around the corner I thought I’d post pictures of the old Sun Smackers! I’ll try not to be too nostalgic but the artwork on these are just fantastic, right?
Here are the trio packs. These have matte labels and an expiration date of 1999. Make sure to click the pictures to take a closer look!
My favorite is the second set, check out those roller-blades.
Sun Smackers – Cherry Cola Fizz, Bubble Gum Ice Cream, Melon Patch
Sun Smackers – Mountain Berry, Sports Cooler, Calypso Punch
Sun Smackers – All-Star Lime Up, Surf-N-Slush, Strawberry Icicle
And here are some of the same flavors in single packs, this time with a metallic label and an expiration date of 2001-2002.
Sun Smackers – Strawberry Icicle, Bubble Gum Ice Cream, Cherry Cola Fizz
Sun Smackers – All-Star Lime Up, Melon Patch, Mountain Berry
Sorry for the lack of updates! It’s been very quiet lately on the Lip Smacker front, though that new poll on their FB page hinted that we might see some more vintage flavors make a return… 😀
Back to School Smackers
I thought I’d post a pic of some cute smackers while we wait for some news. Even though this back-to-school set isn’t from the right season, the design always makes me think of the Spring-time! Plus it came with a grape flavor which they need to do way more of.
They came paired with a cute book cover — way cuter than the paper bag book covers I’d make in elementary school 😛

If anyone hears anything new let me know!
Ooo, I love the Starburst Lip Smackers! 😀 These are the really cute square-capped smackers with the retired block-letter logo from the early 2000s. Bonne Bell released different kinds such as California Fruits, Tropical Fruits, Fruit & Creme, and Original Fruits.
Lip Smacker - 2003 Starburst
BB has made several variations of Starburst smackers over the years – minis, Tropical Fruits, faveREDs, Easter, as well as Starburst lip glosses, shampoos/conditioners, shower gels etc. And I can see why, because the scents are really well done. It’s actually a little crazy how good they are.
From left to right:
*Starburst Original Fruits: Orange
*Starburst California Fruits: Plum Passion
*Starburst California Fruits: Strawberry Watermelon
*Starburst California Fruits: Raspberry
*Starburst Tropical Fruits: Mango Melon
*Starburst Tropical Fruits: Kiwi Banana
*Starburst Tropical Fruits: Strawberry Banana
*Starburst Fruit & Creme: Mixed Berries & Creme
*Starburst Fruit & Creme: Orange & Creme
*Starburst Fruit & Creme: Strawberry & Creme
It’s hard to pick but I really like Plum Passion, Kiwi Banana, and Orange & Creme. Unfortunately since they’re older, they’re getting hard to find. So if you come across them, grab them!
Lip Smacker - Vanilla Creams
2004 was a fun year for Lip Smackers – they released the delicious Vanilla Creams party pack and Swirl Glosses, both of which had really cool transparent tubes and swirly, multi-colored balms. I really hope Bonne Bell brings this style back in the future; fruit + cream is a great combination and they smell crazy good!

Look how pretty! 🙂
Berries and Raspberry are probably my favorite, but it’s really hard to pick. What’s your favorite smacker from this set?
