Anyone who knows me or reads my articles knows how obsessed I am with lip balms, lip glosses, and ChapStick style products for lips. I love the flavors and how soft and kissable your lips remain after product use. I am always on the lookout for new flavors, with some of my all-time favorites being raspberry, coconut, strawberry kiwi, and chocolate varieties. In case you haven’t heard—or even if you have; it’s well worth repeating—ChapStick brings two delectable new flavors to its offerings: Velvet Cupcake and Cake Batter, in its Cupcake Creations product line.
I received two sample ChapSticks in each flavor, as well as a gourmet cupcake mix and cute party supplies to tie it all together. (If only my daughter were a year older – I am sure she would love to have a little birthday party for one of her stuffed animals!) [FTC disclaimer – While I am thrilled to be able to partner with ChapStick to get my hands on these yummy lip goodies right away, my review is what it is, my honest feelings about the product. Don’t think I’m swayed by the special delivery! ]
That being said, I am so excited about these new flavors! I have always loved baked goods, and who doesn’t love cupcakes?! What I think I love most is that ChapStick acknowledges that not all people are vanilla cake fans or chocolate cake fans (or Red Velvet, etc.), but these yummy lip balms cater to both the vanilla and the chocolate camps. The Velvet Cupcake is by far my favorite, purely because I love chocolate and anything similar to it. I think the flavor and fragrance really do capture the essence of a red velvet cake or cupcake, so if you love these, don’t miss out on this new ChapStick!
The Cake Batter flavor is also delicious, and sure to be a big hit for vanilla fans and anyone who enjoys a little cake batter flavoring. (Who can wait all that time for the cake to bake, anyway!?) Those who simply enjoy all things vanilla will also appreciate this lip balm and its delightful and realistic scent and flavor. It reminds me of a Tahitian Vanilla candle I have just about burned to the bottom due to its lovely, aromatic fragrance.
Like all ChapStick products, these sweet flavors moisten our lips and keep them feeling soft and smooth. After using either flavor, my lips feel hydrated and glossy—such a great feeling, especially this time of year. I like to reapply whenever I think of it, so I always keep one or the other in my pocket and my purse. These sweet lip treats are too good to keep all to yourself, and so I actually shared my second set with my mom. These lip balms come in packaging that features a little gift tag design on the back, making them easily giftable or a great accent to a wrapped package.
Velvet Cupcake and Cake Batter are both limited edition flavors, so be sure to get yours before they run their course. The Cupcake Creations collection launched February 1, 2013 and should be available until approximately March 31, 2013. This collection sells exclusively at CVS, Wal-Mart, and Walgreens stores across the country.
