I don’t know about you girls, but when I pulled out my Maybelline Kissing Koolers in middle school, I felt as cool as Kelly Kapowski (despite my braces and training bra). I can still remember the pepperminty, bubblegummy taste perfectly. And then there was Bonne Bell Lip Smackers, and I had, like, 234098234 of those, but Dr. Pepper was by far my fave. DUH. And when I was really getting into my YM-reading years, it was basically a rule that you were NOT cool unless you had Lip Lix in Like-U-Latte. I didn’t even know what a latte actually was, but I wanted my tween/teen lips to taste like one.
For the record, Bonne Bell is still around, but Lip Smackers and Lip Lix are no more and they now sell products with names like Lip’dvotion.
