One of my coworkers was putting on lip balm the other day and I noticed that it said “Cake Batter” on the label. Being the intrusive, nosy person that I am, I made him stop everything he doing to tell me where he got it. He let me borrow it for a minute and I freaked out when I realized it smelled exactly like funfetti cake.
So naturally, I immediately looked for it online. And you know what I found? I found out that it is a limited edition flavor, and that they also have another called Velvet Cupcake. I found it on Amazon being offered as a two pack and placed my order.
They just arrived in the mail and – like a kid at Christmas – I ripped open the box and their corresponding packing with packing peanuts flying everywhere (okay, that might be an exaggeration). And you know what?
THEY’RE SO CUTE.
It’s not often that product packaging makes me go, “Aww!”… but these did. Just look at these things. After I opened each one the little plastic wrap on the caps came off, and I almost don’t want to throw them away.
Besides how adorable they are, I can tell you that the Cake Batter really does smell just like a funfetti cake. The flavor isn’t as strong as the scent, but it’s still yummy and and makes my lips nice and soft.
The Velvet Cupcake (which is clearly a play on Red Velvet cake) also has a strong scent that is very close to what you’d smell when you take a red velvet cake out of the oven. I didn’t pick up on a cream cheese frosting scent so it’s solely the scent of the cake itself, which I actually prefer. The flavor is more prominent than Cake Batter, but I wouldn’t be able to tell it was intended to be red velvet if I didn’t already know what it was. Regardless, I really enjoy the flavor and how it makes my lips feel.
I try to drink lots of water during the winter because my lips get so dry, but I can always use a little help from my two new Chapstick favorites. If anyone at Chapstick is reading these, please keep these around for the long term! I’ll mail you funfetti and red velvet cupcakes 🙂
