s631245105963860138_p208_i1_w600Hi everyone! Finally, summer is just about here! It’s the right time to pull out my Pink Grapefruit biggy for a vintage spotlight!


The wonderful pink tube is topped off with an equally pink balm that makes this one of the sweetest looking vintages there is. Even the scent is still there in its tangy-citrus glory, but it does hint at a fragrance depth that is no longer there.

This is a sure favorite, and I hope there is a lot of Pink Grapefruit in the coming summers!

    That’s beautiful! Is this one a biggy or regular sized one?

    I wish they did a release of this one!

      There was a pink grapefruit liquid Lip Smacker that was released a few years ago. I wish I still had it. 🙁

  3. Omg, you’re so lucky to have this! Such a rare, vintage gem. I love the way Bonne Bell did grapefruit flavors. My first was the Pink Grapefruit Squeeze Lip Burst they came out with in 2000. I loved it! Then there was the Raspberry Grapefruit Squeeze Vita Gloss they did, loved that. More recently was the Sweet Grapefruit Lip Lushous and the Pink Grapefruit Lip Lites that had the same exact flavor formula as the Lip Burst I had 15 years ago so I’m sure this one was similar. I’d love to have a Pink Grapefruit Biggy or would even settle for a smaller one if they’d bring it back. The only other grapefruit they’ve done under the Smackers label was the Strawberry Grapefruit Liquid Lip Smacker a couple years back that was super amazing, a very juicy and fruity flavor. Love that you shared this, it’s a beauty!

    • I forgot the Pink Grapefruit Sparkler Luscious Lip Smacker, although all the Luscious’ have that ‘lemon ice’ flavor they’ve been using for every lemon flavor, added in, so it’s not entirely a true grapefruit flavor. I’d LOVE an original Pink Grapefruit again!!!

    SO pretty!!!

    I’ve never had this flavor but it sounds awesome!

    What a beautiful looking tube and balm color!

  7. Honey on May 28, 2015 at 12:14 AM said:

    MMM…..I love anything with Pink Lemonade and Pink Grapefruit in them. 🙂

    I found some pinky liquid Lip Smackers in berry strawberry pink at the Dollar Tree. It smells really nice.

  9. Sparkina on May 31, 2015 at 10:27 PM said:

    Holy Roman Emperors! If this was still being made and offered on the Smackers site, it would totes go in my shopping cart

    • Celeste on May 31, 2015 at 11:38 PM said:

      Mine too! Thy def should bring this back! All the vintage flavors are awesome! I have them all except vanilla malt shake (already have vanilla cream soda biggy) and root beer float. I hate root beer!

  10. Maria on June 1, 2015 at 4:52 AM said:

    Omg I LOVE Barqs Root BEER.

    • Really? Maybe I should reconsider it as a balm at least. I hate real root beer to drink. It made me sick when I was a little kid once because its way too sweet and I HATED it ever since. LOL

  11. Renee on June 6, 2015 at 1:40 AM said:

    I can’t wait to find out what the Inside Out Lip Smacker flavors are going to be. I keep checking their Facebook page, but they never said what the flavors were.

  12. Maria on June 6, 2015 at 5:06 AM said:

    Whoa what?? Inside out flavors? Did I miss something?

  13. Maria on June 6, 2015 at 10:09 AM said:

    Ooo waiit. The sadness, joy, anger, etc…? Wonder if we will get blueberry or boysenberry? Maybe a REAL hot Cinnamon?

    • Renee on June 6, 2015 at 11:32 AM said:

      I’m not sure, but I really hope they’re not the same old flavors they’ve been coming out with for the past few years.

    • Boysenberry please, like the one from the Jeweled Collection 🙂 ! Or the sadness could be that awful cinnamon swirl flavors they came out with. It makes me sad because its a disappointment! LOL

      • Renee on June 11, 2015 at 7:28 PM said:

        Anger is cinnamon flavored, and Sadness is blueberry. Based on what was said on Facebook, it’ll be like the blueberry flavor that used to be out years ago. I can’t wait to try it!

        • Celeste on June 11, 2015 at 11:49 PM said:

          Yes I saw that on Twitter! I hope its like the old blueberry too! They came out with a 1980s sour orange flavor too! I want!

  14. I bought this 00’s Christmas Smackers trio from Ebay for about $5.00 with mint jubilee, cherry pomegranate and sugar cookie. The flavor depth is no longer there but I like them for collections purpose only. It has the old 1990s bubble letter font instead of this new age neutral one that I hate. lol

  15. Renee on June 6, 2015 at 8:02 PM said:

    I got anothet Layer-It Lip Smacker today in raspberry orange. The raspberry liquid gloss smells like candy, and the orange balm smells like an orange dreamsicle! I highly recommend it. I’ve only seen them at Kroger.

  16. Maria on June 6, 2015 at 11:26 PM said:

    Yummy. I like dreamsicle.

  17. Celeste on June 7, 2015 at 12:13 AM said:

    I just saw on theTwitter page that anger is cinnamon! Maybe this is going to be the hot cinnamon flavor we’ve been waiting for! LOL

  18. Celeste on June 7, 2015 at 1:59 AM said:

    The Walgreens by my house completely removed their tiny lip smackers display section and replaced it with cotton balls. So sad. 🙁

    • Renee on June 7, 2015 at 2:49 AM said:

      My Walgreen’s doesn’t even have a Lip Smacker display. They tend to just put them in the front of the store when they get them, and the rest in the toy section.

      • Celeste on June 7, 2015 at 2:04 PM said:

        I wishs these stores would give Lip Smackers the respect they deserve! But again, if they aren’t selling well in stores then they aren’t going to have an actual section dedicated to them. The lip smackers from my Walgreens were Easter 2014 lip smackers. Nobody bought them, they were there for over a year.

        • Renee on June 7, 2015 at 2:20 PM said:

          That’s strange. My Walgreen’s doesn’t stock or sell Lip Smackers for very long. The oldest Lip Smackers I’ve seen in stores were at Rite Aid. They even have original Lip Smacker party packs before they changed the logo 6 years ago. I should go back there sometime to see if the 90’s trio is there. There weren’t any at Kroger or Target, which is disappointing. I’m getting tired of hunting these all the time.

          • Celeste on June 8, 2015 at 7:56 PM said:

            I understand your frustration! I miss seeing them everywhere like when I was a kid! Back then I didn’t have my own money to buy them. Now I have money, but they are no where to be found! LOL

  19. Maria on June 7, 2015 at 6:05 AM said:

    Hopefully hot big red cinnamon

    (Long time lurker, first time commenter, Smackers fan for over twenty years — since childhood)

    I am so excited about the new Inside Out flavours for blueberry and cinnamon. Both sound much more intense and awesome than the half-assed cinnamons we’ve gotten lately or the bakery-scent blueberries.

    So what do you think the others will be?


    Fear is pale purple, but I’m hoping they avoid the obvious grape (if only because there’s already so many grapes). Really I’d adore a violet flavour, but realistically, I think the best we can hope for is a grape-based mixed berry.

    Disgust is green. Honeydew melon would be awesome! (I know there’s a honeydew with SPF but it has that funky sunscreen taste. Bleh.) Departing from the colours, it would be cool if Disgust got a very divisive flavour, something many will love and many will hate. Black jelly bean, for instance.

    Joy is blue/lime green. The obvious is bright tangy lemon-lime. That would be good, especially if it has some real punch to it (unlike the sort of bland Sprite).
