These 90s Lip Glosses Are Making A Comeback This Summer

It was great to grow up in the '90s and know that lip gloss always came in fruity or otherwise food-inspired flavors that smelled really good. Many of us came of age using Lip Smackers since we couldn't help but want our lip glosses to smell just like bubble gum.

And since these products came in flavors, our moms were definitely more comfortable letting us buy and use them. It seemed a lot more innocent than buying some long-lasting red lipstick, for example.

Well, we have some really good news: flavored lip glosses are back and people are loving them. Even if we're the biggest lipstick users around and no one can quite recognize us without the color that we always wear, we can remember the simple fun of using lip gloss.

It's enjoyable and seems less serious than lipstick, which can have a very grown-up feel to it. We say bring on the lip glosses—and the fruitier the flavor, the better.

The '90s called and they want their lip glosses back... but we don't care because we love this nostalgic beauty trend. Here are 20 '90s inspired lip glosses that are making a comeback this summer. Which one should we try first?

18 Lip Smacker Coke & Fanta Cups 4 Piece Lip Balm Collection

Lip Smacker just screams 1990s to us, right? This is the brand that we grew up using... and we can use it once again! This lip balm collection is totally perfect if we're missing the '90s and want to wear some flavored lip products once again this summer. This collection comes in four flavors: Fanta Strawberry, Fanta Orange, Fanta Grape, and Coca-Cola Classic.

You can find the Lip Smackers on Amazon

That's right, these lip balms are based on our favorite sodas, and the pack of four is only $12.99. The product design is really cute, too, as each one has a little straw and looks a lot like a plastic cup of pop.

17 Expressions Girl / 7-piece Flavored Lip Gloss Set

This set of seven flavored lip glosses from Expressions Girls also has a very '90s vibe to it. The flavors are so much fun: Vanilla/White, Orange/Orange, Grape/Purple, Strawberry/Pink, Blueberry/Blue, Lemon/Yellow, and Cherry/Red.

This is also a great lip gloss to buy for ourselves and for any younger girls in our lives, too. Maybe we have a cousin or younger sister who would adore them. As one 13-year-old girl shared in a review, "I love these lil glosses and I'm 13. And I just still love the smell of them, they are so cute and shiny."

For only $8.46, this set of seven flavored lip glosses can be yours.

16 Philosophy Melon Daiquiri Flavored Lip Shine


If we miss the lip glosses of the 1990s that always came in flavors that sounded just like food, then the Philosophy Melon Daiquiri Flavored Lip Shine is what we want to be wearing this summer. Even the name of this beauty product is fun (and so much better than "Red" or "Pink").

Find Philosophy Lip Shine On Amazon

As one girl shared in a review, "Love, love, love!!! Bath and body works stopped making my favorite flavor of lip gloss so I replaced it with this... Watch out it's addicting. It stays on forever and tastes good enough to eat."

This lip shine costs $9.99 so it's a good pick.

15 Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss


This is a great lip gloss if we love cherry-flavored products. Perhaps we're remembering how our 12-year-old selves would always buy cherry lip balm or gloss. Well, since flavored lip glosses are making a comeback this summer, we should definitely grab a tube of the Lime Crime Wet Cherry Lip Gloss.

Find it on Amazon

It's $18 and smells good, too, which is a bonus of flavored lip gloss. One girl reviewed it and wrote, "I’m in love with this gloss! I am definitely a gloss girl, I rarely ever wear lipstick, so I am always looking for a good tube of lip gloss. It has a cherry scent, which, personally, I thoroughly enjoy. It’s not sticky at all. The applicator is pretty big, which I find quite useful. I am about to order in a few other colors!" We can't wait to try it (and we can't wait for the amazing smell of cherry).

14 Blue Cross Blossom Scented Lip Gloss With Real Flowers In Strawberry Banana

via: amazon.com

This lip gloss is only $6.41 and, according to the official product description, it has "Bursting notes of strawberry with sweet floral undertones." That sounds wonderful, especially since summer is approaching.

You can find it on Amazon

The Strawberry Banana flavor is enough to make us want to buy this product immediately because that is a really fun flavor. We might not have been able to find any lip glosses in this flavor back in the day since strawberry or cherry were common, so this is really enjoyable and makes our '90s selves very happy.

One review says, "Like this lip gloss. It is light and works great."

13 Lip Smacker Coffee And Tea Lip Balm Party Pack


What can we say?! We love Lip Smacker, and we definitely need the Lip Smacker Coffee and Tea Lip Balm Party Pack.

As one girl shared in a review, she's been a big fan of the brand: "I have used Lip Smackers since I was 5 years old, and still have not found a better chapstick! I remember when they were scented before also adding flavor. The flavor/scent is very important to me."

12 Candy Kisses All Natural Lip Balm - 24 Pieces Assorted Flavors: Watermelon/Cherry Vanilla/Bubblegum


Yup, this set has 24 different lip balms, which is great news since it's also only $29.93. We do love two things: '90s nostalgia and a good bargain.

The flavors are watermelon, cherry vanilla, and bubblegum, which are amazing. We can indulge our younger selves and remember the days when we wanted our makeup to come in fun flavors and when we wouldn't settle for anything that was dull. These lip balms are perfect for summer so we should definitely stock up now and get ready. Chances are, our best friends will ask what lip balm we're wearing since it smells so good.
