10 ’80s lip balms we totally wish we had today

In a world where people are claiming EOS lip balms cause grody rashes, it seems a fine moment to revisit the lip balms of years gone by. We didn’t really call it “lip balm” in elementary school in the 1980s—we were less concerned with the moisturizing effects of the stuff and really more concerned with the taste. The ’80s were a lip product extravaganza, an artificially flavored wax fest bookended by cherry ChapStick and Revlon Silver City Pink. In between were the rainbow packages and fruity smears and status-symbol roller balls that were every young girl’s calling card.
