The fabulous people at Vaseline sent me a very intriguing package this week. Not only did it contain champagne truffles, a party balloon, bubbles, glitter, sparkles and sequins, but it also contained a very secret flavour of Vaseline that’s going to be launched this September in Selfridges. Not wanting to let the secret slip out too easily, they sent me a number of clues to guess the flavour of the limited edition pot using my nobbin. The launch builds upon the limited edition Creme Brulee flavour of 2011 and will again no doubt be sought after by ladies with luscious lips across the land. I’ve got an inkling that this flavour may be something to do with celebrations and pinkness… Pink Champagne?
Vaseline also set me a challenge to decorate the plain, unbranded pot with all the various bits and bobs they sent me. I’m not very creative or artistic (the highlight of my school art career was drawing my shoe) but I’ve done my best! I started off using some glitter to create a zigzag effect, blobbing on superglue where I wanted it to stick. Building on this with some cute silver and gold sparkles around the edges, I then finished off the top with pink glitter to create a ‘zebra’ effect. (Check me all adventurous!) Sticking a little silver bow on to bring it all together, I was done!
The challenge isn’t just for fun though, oh no… If the Vaseline gods deem my design to be worthy (or my flavour guess correct) I could be in with a chance of winning a luxury trip to Paris, not only for myself but for one of you guys too! What better way to celebrate a Pink Champagne Vaseline than by drinking champagne up the Eiffel Tower? (That is, if it is Pink Champagne!) I love that Vaseline bring a bit of fun into a brand that otherwise is a little traditional, dull and basic – lip care should be fun and this is the perfect way to celebrate that! As they’re always on the look out for new flavours, why not let me know your perfect Vaseline flavour in the comments box below… You never know, this time next year it could be about to launch!
