Lip Service: November (#TBT Edition!)

As future PR people, it's super important to prep our pouts so we can confidently pitch and promote clients! Check out our top lip product picks this month!

Elise's Pick:
This month, Jasmine thought it would be fun to do a "throwback" edition of Lip Service. I thought about
the products I loved when I was little (Dr. Pepper Lip Smackers, anyone?) and had trouble thinking of just one until I took a peek into my makeup bag. I discovered a little pot of lip balm from the Body Shop that reminded me of the first trip I took alone. Every time I smell it, I think of awkward 7th grade me and it puts a little smile on my face. 

It's called Born Lippy and it comes in a few flavors. Mine is Papaya or Guava, which I don't think they sell anymore. I also really like the Watermelon one. I found it over the summer and had to have it. At six dollars, it's not a bad price, and it's a cheap way to bring back a few memories. Does anyone remember these? 

Jasmine's Pick:
Ahh, Lip Service #ThrowbackThursday edition! 

Does anyone remember Mary Kay's Velocity cosmetics line? In Upper L elementary, it was my fav: the face wash, lotion, body spray, nail polishes and, most of all, the lip glosses. 

Of course, I thought they were mostly amazing because of the container (I'm a sucker for mod design), which is now dated. Looking back, there's wasn't anything particularly special about the brand, other than it was trying to create a teen/young adult line to compete with Avon's Mark. 

Excuse the photo quality, since the line appears to be defunct, finding quality images was difficult. Speaking of defunct, the only place I could find Velocity for sale was on Ebay and Amazon. So, you'll just have to reminisce about Velocity rather than picking it up for old time's sake. 

What was your fav lip product as a kid?
