Addiction... [21 Dec 2008|12:38pm]

[ mood | nostalgic ]

It's unfortunate for my purse strings that I have an addictive personality.....

It all began many years ago, my cousin was staying with us as her mother was in hospital. The thing about this cousin was she never used sun protection.....ever. My Mam began to worry. So she bought her many sun cream protection things, including a glow in the dark, sun protection lip balm (in a stick). Now me and this cousin were extremely close but it could be said I kinda worshipped her, in a jealous sort of way I suppose.... Annnnnyways, I decided this wasn't on. I wanted one too. So my Mam bought me a lip balm thingy. It was boring. I was so jealous of my cousin and her glow in the dark version even though mine had higher SPF. So to pacify me my Mom did something that would change my life forever. Ever heard of 'Flava-Craze'? Those brightly coloured cylindrical tube which are approx 2.5 inches tall which are used to lure children into the life of a teenage chapstick addiction. Granted I was about 8 years old but whatever.

So I was beyond happy with that. Along came my childhood lip balm addiction, centring mainly around pots of the stuff. Another important trait is mine is that I'm untidy, but once in a while I like to obsessively tidy my room/bathroom and throw out old things. I nearly always end up regretting what I throw out and hold onto useless, broken things. So on one of these tidying moments, I decided to throw out my Flava-Craze. I had had them for a long time and they had served me well. After that my addiction began to subside and I found Sharpies, and began collecting and hoarding them instead. For years I continued dipping in and out of my previous addiction, buying food flavoured LipSmackers, and them adorable Care-Bear ones in Claires. All this until just last month. I began to gnaw and my lips and, it being so cold, they kept getting worse and worse. Like a mother giving her child heroin my mother gave me her tube of mint Chapstick. It just went from bad to worse. I decided to look up about them on-line and I seen a picture of my long forgotten Flava-Craze. Memories flooded back and I took it upon my self to get my hands on all possible Chapstick flavours in my area (natural, orange, original, cherry, strawberry...). Then when buying a trio pack of Flava-Craze(and getting odd looks from the woman serving me and I was buying 6 different types) I realise Chapstick has changed the flavours....:(
What a let down... My childhood is tainted.

this is awesome. glad to know i'm not the only one "addicted" to chapstick. of course, i don't really consider it an addiction. i consider it more of a necessity. cool community.

[ mood | silly ]

Dude, this is an awesome idea for a community! I am also a chapstick addict...I have tubes of it everywhere around my room, in my purse, coat pockets...I MUST have it with me at all times. It's like an OCD or something. My name's Chelsie by the way...just thought I'd introduce myself.

Have a good night everyone!

My collection :) [30 Jan 2005|09:43pm]

[ mood | happy ]



The smaller cup is full of chapsticks that I'm currently using, from what I could find laying around my room, the vase is my new collection of unused chapsticks. Its a shame I don't like flavored ones as much as regular (or even medicated) chapsticks, but they were either gift sets, or on clearance at longs, how can I pass up 3  chapsticks for less than 75 cents?

Hey, my name is Nichol and I am a chapstick addict!

I can barely go an hour without chapstick[puts chapstick on]. I once went 5 days without it cuz I ran out, lost the extras, and someone stole my carmax[even though it's for cold sores, I use it for emergencies].

My mom bought me some over the weekend*yay*, but it was a kind I've never had before. Softlips. I have cool cherry, and it smells like play doh. Lol. It doesn't last for longer than five minutes for me, no matter how much I put on.

I have this other kind too, but it's a lip shimmer. My mom gave it to me cuz it was too dark for her(so I'll wear it?!). It's Burt's Bees, shade: coffee. It's super dark, and if you touch it just with a little tap it gets on your finger. But it's fun to just put it on for no reason whatsoever. :)

Life without chapstick is the new hell

Chapped, red, and stinging [16 Dec 2004|08:57pm]

[ mood | mellow ]

OMG! Today when I was driving I forgot my chap sticks in the trunk of my car, and I could not put any on for 4 hours. My lips got so chapped that when I did put some on it stung so bad. I've learned my lesson; I have to keep an extra chap stick in the glove box so this atrocity never happens again.

I just bought junior mint chapstick and it is great. it smells sooo good. (and it tasts good too) and when you rub your lips together they slide just right. and the best part: it was only $2.99 which seems a bit expensive, but i saw the same chapstick at urban outfitter for $5, and i bought mine at ragstock. they have other flavors too, i may have to go buy some more.

Malibu chapstick rules my life [13 Dec 2004|09:21pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Hi, my name is Tina and I love chap stick, therefore this community is great for me and I am so excited to be in it. I didn't even think that there would be a community like this, but it is great! My new obsession is Malibu chap stick. I have to put it on at least ten times as day. I got it from the bar the other night when they were promoting Malibu so they were giving out shots and chapstick. Since I am obsessed with chap stick I had to grab myself a couple and now I am addicted. I also really like the neutrogena lip gloss, but chap stick is still, by far my favorite. Glad to be a part of the community!

"Kiss My Face" lip balm is my new best friend. I recently grabbed up a handfull at the local GNC on clearance for $0.75 each - the apple flavor and the ginger-mango are the yummiest. They have a great smooth texture that's not too light and not too waxy, sort of like the Chapstick Lip Moisturizer with better flavors.

These are definitely worth looking for in your neck of the woods!

new lip balms [18 Aug 2004|04:44pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

hi everyone, i just got home from shopping and bought a few new chapsticks, i just thought i would share them with you...

Cheetos Lip Balm ~ ok now before you barf at just the thought let me explain. someone (i forget who) on live journal said they never really finish their chapsticks all the way down to the bottom except for a Cheetos Lip Balm they once had and today in Claires I saw it,not only is it my favorite food (cheese, not cheetos), but i remembered that comment in the back of my head. so even tho my mom was totally gagging at even the thought of Cheetos Lip Balm, I bought it anyway. It is ok, smells JUST like the reall thing, but i feel a little self concuss when i wear it because i'm affraid it makes my lips REEK. I give this a 5/10

Snapple Lip Yumms in Kiwi Strawberry ~ Also from Claires, this little pot of lip balm is so cute! the lid is shaped just like the cap on a Snapple bottle! That's pretty much the only reason I bought it, and because it had a pretty pink shimmer to it. You can't really taste anything, but it isn't bad and it adds a pretty, natural gloss to your lips i give it a 7/10

Miss Kiss Sweet Slicks in Vanilla ~ I got this one from Ulta, i think it is brand new because I have never seen it before, and it was only $1.99!! It tastes/smells very good, and gives your lips a natural plump, juicy look, at least i think so. It also comes in a cute slim stick. I give this balm a 8/10

NOW beware, the next 2 items are lip gloss but i like them so much i'm putting them in here...

Wet 'n' Wild MegaSlicks Lip Gloss Liquid Lip Color in Rose Gold - I was restocking on this one, my best friend gave it to me for my birthday & I loved it so much I used it all right up! It it the perfect shade for me and I absolutley love it! And it has a pleasant taste to it. This one gets a 10/10!!

Caboodles Lipsine Lip Gloss in Psychedelic ~ This one is pretty much the same color as the Wet 'n' Wild one but it tastes and smells so much better!! I am absolutley in love with this one as well, 10/10!!

ok i just had to tell ya'll this funny story.

alright so now everyone knows my addiction to lip stuff, i buy new ones everytime i get paid, which happens to be every 2 weeks. well one day my mom comes home from my grandma's (which happens to be right in my backyard) and she was talking about how she was having this convo with my unlce bill, they were talking abt my stomach aches ( since november or december i have had these constant stomach aches, and i have had a gastroscopy, a echocardiogram, and many many more test to see what is wrong, still they have no idea but i am on this medication for it so it isn't so bad) then my mom tells my uncle that i have abt 150 different lip things, he is just absolutely amazed by this and all of a sudden he goes "I know why jessica has these stomach aches! The problem is that she uses soo much lip stuff constantly that the wax from all of it has COATED her stomach!" so yeah now everyone has this belief that i get stomach aches because of me using so much lip stuff and each and every time it coats my stomach with more and more wax. so tell me what do you think? is it the wax or is my family just crazy? i just can't come to a conclusion and there is NO WAY that i am gonna stop using the stuff! haha so comment me plz and give me your opinion. :D
