|Lip balm in a tin -- Village brand Lip Lickers in fruity flavors.
Who remembers Lip Lickers? These fun moisturizing lip balms or lip glosses came in a rectangular tin with a sliding cover. You could slide the top to open, then slide it back to seal and toss it in your pocket or Jordache purse. These cute lip balms were a must-have for us 80s girls. Village Lip Lickers lip balms came in a variety of tasty flavors such as watermelon, grape, strawberry and more. Unlike Bonne Bell's Lip Smackers, the allure was the little shiny tin. We girls love tins!
|Village Lip Lickers Lip Balm also
came in tins with two separate flavors.
Something about the font or logo always reminded me of the olden days. I could imagine purchasing this lip gloss at Nel's Mercantile store on Little House on the Prairie. Makes sense seeing as this 1979 product hailed from Minnetonka, Minnesota which is a mere three hours away from Laura Ingall's Walnut Grove. I can also picture this lip balm in a tin sold today in Cracker Barrel country stores along i95.
Did you or your sisters own one of these nifty tins of Lip Lickers Lip Balm?
