Picture this: It’s a few days before Easter and I’m zipping down the aisles of Target. I’m a woman on a mission. Past the CDs. Past the makeup. Heck, I even zoomed right past the glorious $1 section.
Like I said, I was on a mission here.
I eventually found myself in heaven — or at least, my version of it.
The Easter section. Shelves and shelves piled high with chocolate and PEEPS and jelly beans and malted milk balls; all these were great choices, sure, but they weren’t really what I was after. They weren’t what was calling my name. After a few minutes of scanning, my eyes zeroed in on my target. I mean, we’re talking laser-pointer precision here. I could have shined a spotlight on them with the way I was glaring at them.
The object of my desire? The Easter-themed/springtime Lip Smacker sets.
Oh, trust me, they were a beautiful sight to behold, all new and shiny in the package. So what did typical “me” do? I may or may not have thrown ALL five kinds in my basket — you know, NBD. OK, in my defense, just take a look at these pics…
I mean, with names like Squared Marshmallow Treat, Lemon Tart Surprise, Bunny Mint Delight, Choco-Coco Whip and Nutty Brittle, how can you not scoop them all up? No, really, I dare you to try it and leave Target empty handed. It’s not easy, I tell you.
Not to mention the fact that the packaging is a-dor-able (picture me saying that!), especially the cute chick and bunny key chains. Now all I have to do is make room for them in my lip balm organizer, which, admittedly, is almost overflowing. Ahh, the life of a Lip Balm Addict, huh?
Have you tried these limited-edition balms, friends? If so, what were your favorite flavors? xoxo
