Friday Fun: cheery lip balms

Happy Friday!  I thought I'd round off this V-day week with a quick post on some very cheerful lip balms to keep your pucker in tip-top shape for smooching your beloved. ;)  Thanks to Beautifulwithbrains and BritishBeautyBlogger for bringing my attention to these.

I've always admired Soap & Glory's witty product names and clever copy, and these lip balms fit right in.  A Great Kisser balms come in Chocolate Cherry, Juicy Peach and Sweet Coconut flavors and feature a smiley, retro-looking woman on the packaging.

They remind me quite a bit of Benefit's earlier items, like the Roadside Attraction palettes.  

Then we have Love & Toast's Pucker Up tinted lip glaze set.  I was vaguely familiar with the line as it's made by Margot Elena (who also does the design for Tokyo Milk, the most beautifully packaged bath and body line I've ever seen), but I thought the collection consisted only of bath and body items.  I was wrong - apparently Love & Toast dabbles in makeup as well, as these lip glosses demonstrate.


There's also a lip butter sampler set that I'd love to get my hands on:

The prints on all of these are wonderful - they work great on the items themselves, but I could see them making awesome gift wrap too!

So what do you think?  Which design is your fave?  Naturally I can't choose...I definitely want all of them!
