Guilty Pleasures Week

In celebration of The X Factor’s ‘guilty pleasures’ week, here’s a guilty pleasure of mine… pointless collaborations between cosmetics and kids film characters. Shrek Forever After is out on DVD soonish so they’ve teamed up with Chapstick (because loads of 8 yr olds wear lipbalm, don’t you know) to launch a special edition Shrek flavour. It comes in green apple, has a picture of Shrek on the side and is green. There’s a theme coming here.

The lipbalm itself is actually quite nice. It’s a really lovely apple scent that isn’t sickly sweet, which matches the pale green colour of the lipbalm. And the best thing is that if you don’t want to shout about the fact that it’s a Shrek lipbalm, you can take the whole packet off and you’re left with a plain white case. Fabulous. These are out in store now… another one to add to my lipbalm collection.

    I need this.. Purely because it's the most tackiest and cheesiest type of product but I love it. Lol.

    My bloke asked for a lipbalm as he's working outside a lot lately and when I went looking I spotted this… I was *this* close, and if it hadn't been chapstick I would have, but he has a big ole scar in the middle of his bottom lip so needs something more moisturising 🙁

    I love this! 🙂 I know it's ever so slightly cheesy but who cares! They should do a more Shrek themed ones with a Gingerbread man one! Mmmmmmm gingerbread lipbalm!xxx

    I kept telling the PR girl that I was laughing at this – I don't know why it amused me so much, but it's just so random!
