Once in awhile I thought I’d do a little feature on products from our past, ones that we fondly remember that dropped off the face of the earth.
Today’s entry is about Maybelline’s Kissing Koolers, those neat little marbleized lip glosses that came in flavors like Peppermint Twist, Tutti Frutti, Watermelon, Strawberry Fizz and Cherry Cola. My good friend E and I were crazy for the things and E would slather so much Tutti Frutti on that her lips turned purple. I, on the other hand, would apply Watermelon and wind up with gray lips that had me looking like I was ready for a showing at the local funeral parlor.
Still, the scents were amazing, and the little domed tubes adorable.
I happen to have some stashed away that I refuse to part with just for nostalgia’s sake. The picture below shows them all, which I had at one point, but I pruned my collection and now only have three left. Still, they all smell as they always did, so Maybelline must have pickled these things.
Ah, the 80s and early 90s sure were fun times…
