I just thought I would share some Make-Up nostalgia with you all as I had been reminiscing today. We all have products we used to be mad on as a teenager. Some we would never dream of using again while some you look back on fondly and wish it was still available. Well, this is a post regarding just that and I'm sure a lot of my readers would not have heard of this product. It is a lip gloss by Bonne Bell called Honey Kiss.
Wonder how I got my hands on Bonne Bell cosmetics? Well, I have family in Australia and when I was 12 on a visit myself I discovered this product. I was on the turn of being a teenager at that point and bought loads of magazines to entertain myself including Dolly and Girlfriend (equivalent to the UK's Bliss or Sugar magazines). While reading these I saw a high recommendation for these lip glosses - so I had to have one! They were marketed as containing real honey which would moisturise and soothe lips as you wore it. Fabulous! So with my holiday money, I trundled off to Priceline to make my purchase.
This instantly became a favourite of my make-up bag! From what I remember, it was lovely and glossy and tasted sweet. It was delicious with it's honey-scented fragrance. It did keep my lips moisturised too so I often wore this to school in the winter. I used to share this amazing product with my cousin and she still talks about this stuff now.
However, am I really being too nostalgic? Many reviews of this online describe it as sticky and leaving a film. I cannot remember this myself but was I just so in love with this that I have ignored its negatives?
We all have a product we look back to fondly. Unfortunately for me, my fondly remembered lip gloss is now discontinued in Australia so I can't even get family members to send me some over! Do you have a particular product you loved as a teen?
