Long overdue but here they are, the 2015 Valentines smackers! I had to order online once I realized the chance of them being found locally went from unlikely to impossible.
Vanilla & Mine, 2 Sweet Cotton Candy, Bubble Gum XOXO.
I like the art on these more than last year’s though I still stand by 2013 being the cutest yet.
The last Valentine’s Day themed Lip Smackers I was able to find in stores were the Lip Lock lip gloss tins. I had the cherry chocolate one and I used it all up! Now I don’t have it anymore.
Aww, how cute are these?! How’s the Bubble Gum? Does it smell like the original Bubble Gum?
It does, the valentine’s are usually 100% redos it seems!
I didnt get these because they are complete redos. But they sure are cute! Renee, how is the chocolate cherry?
It smells amazing! Have you tried the Paul Frank chocolate cherry Lip Smacker? I had that one too, and it smells goooooood.
I did some Lip Smacker hunting today, and I got the Cupcake Lover’s collection for $3.58! All of them were unused except for the red velvet one. I can’t tell if someone used it or it was just made kind of funny. I won’t be using it anyways because I’m allergic, but I’ll keep it for collecting purposes.
The Paul Frank Chocolate Cherry reminds me of a cherry Tootsie Pop to a T! I wished the Cherry Chocolate they brought out for holiday 2013 was the same but it wasn’t at all. I would’ve stocked up like crazy.
Also, just re-read the ingredients list on the Strawberry I bought today. They started using Stevia as a sweetener instead of sodium saccharin. Interesting. I don’t mind at all but in the preservative-free world we live in lately, I’ve never have had a problem with the formula containing them. I’m mean after all, they are promoted to collect, and my 70s ones all still smell fine. Clearly, I don’t use them after a certain point but it’s nice to reminisce about a flavor and open the tube down the road. Hope they don’t take the preservatives out when they switch over.
They could make a separate collection without preservatives instead. Then everyone can be happy.
Yes like that natural line they had for a while! I loved those! Still have my Acai berry
Interesting! I noticed that lately also that stevia was being used as a sweetener. I also noticed that the Cream Pop flavor with the jelly texture contains several parabens in the ingredient list.
I got the Honeydew Melon recently. Didn’t like the texture much.
I cant wait to get my cupcake collection. Im HIGHLY considering the Paul Frank Party Pack.
I bought the Paul Frank party pack today from Ebay. I couldn’t resist; all the flavors seem so good!
The red velvet was pretty bland to me, not nearly as good as the royal red velvet from the tasty cake pop collection. The berry buttercreqm, I think, was sour and rancid from the moment I opened it. Birthday cake was plain, and I think the dog ate it. Coconut vanilla was coconutty and those give me a headache. But strawberry sprinkle.. That one.. Creamy, slightly paper minty, mild bakery, barely sweet, and lightly strawberry. It’s not strawberry, though, so don’t open it with any expectations. overall, it’s an exceptional embodiment of what a great, original smacker can be. It’s been in my purse for 18 months. I’m still not tired of it.
As cute as those are, I wish they were more Valentine-like flavors. Chocolate Cherry, Chocolate Raspberry, etc. Heck, if they were going to repeat flavors, they could’ve gone with the M&M ones they had a few years ago, of which I still have my Milk Chocolate & Coconut one. <3
The vday collections are always their most low effort which stinks.
I love the Grape 4 ever, Apple of my I, and Berry in Love.
Here’s the Paul Frank party pack on Ebay. I think its a pretty reasonable price, it comes out to about $2 per balm and its free shipping. I’m not working with the seller or anything, but I noticed people expressing interest in them. I bought this this afternoon. The flavors are fun and I like the funny designs. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Paul-Frank-8-Piece-Lip-Smacker-Moisturizing-Lip-Gloss-14-oz-each-/251829647326?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3aa23777de&rmvSB=true
I’ve been a pretty ardent supporter of their efforts to satisfy fans. I guess I’m just disappointed. I have all the V-day lip smackers I could ever find, but the last order I got they sent me last year’s, and one of the metallics. When I called, they said ,” well, the flavor is the same, so that’s all that matters.” I was heartbroken. I didn’t even see these. I think I am going to cry again. I feel so childish wanting to throw a temper tantrum over missing collection pieces, but I guess these bring out the very small child in me. After that incident, I am ready to tell them good-bye, possibly auction my collection on e-bay. I’m so ready, I opened my cosmic smackers, got my mint choco chip and slathered it all over my lips. Btw, it’s amazing and scratchy and it made me feel better than a tub of ice cream.????????????
It has an amazing smell, so I don’t blame you for that. Just promise me you won’t eat it! D:
I have a mint choco shimmer Lip Smacker from the 2009 holiday collection. It still smells pretty awesome. Same with the pomegranate and strawberry kiwi ones from the same collection.
Is it weird that I have my own odd method of using Lip Smackers? What I do is I try to figure out which flavors smell alike or I buy a second one of that flavor. I use one and I keep one for collecting. When I use one of the Lip Smackers, I use it up only to a certain extent and move on to another flavor. I’ve done this for about a year, and I now have about 30 mostly used up Lip Smackers I can use without using up the precious ones I’m keeping for collecting.
I promise I won’t eat it. And I did roughly the same thing. The Girl Scouts thin mint was fitting the bill. I have OCD, so I really shouldn’t be collecting anything. “Collect responsibly” is my motto, so if I really really want to use one or buy a new one, the rule is to wait, up to a month. Until I feel like its a reward for patience or that it’s not a big deal. I can’t allow myself rewarding feeling for doing something compulsive. On that note, I can’t believe after 15 years the are still as great as I remembered.
Scary. What I think will happen is that I’ll use it for about 3 weeks before dreaded yellow spots will show up.
Hey Bunny Cookie, I went on the Lip Smackers website and they did not have any of these 2015 Valentine’s flavors. I would love to know where they can be purchased, preferably online! Thanks!
I’m not Bunny Cookie, but I bet these are sold on eBay.
Thank you for the suggestion, but I checked and sadly they are not. I am very anxious to purchase them, but I have not been able to track them down! 🙁
If all else fails, just get the original vanilla, cotton candy, and bubblegum. These are just the same with different labels. I know, I have trouble finding new Lip Smackers too.
