Sex: Female

When it was popular: 1985 -
Description: Lipbalms that (I believe) were made by Maybelline, they were small and fat (rather than large and thin) and came in all sorts of flavors... smelled and tasted good enough to eat, much like the Bonne Bell lip smackers.

You can find them on ebay. They are around $15 a piece! I loved them when I was little..the watermelon is the one most vivid to me.

i remember these kissing cooler like it was yesterday! i loved the way it had the marble effect and the red and white one ooh... how it tasted so much like peppermint and it felt so minty and fresh. i really loved all the flavors that came in the pack. i wish, also how it will come back. shoot im 30yr and if they came back out, i will wait out side of the store till it opened just to get them in my hands, like a teenager waiting on line for some famous rock group concert tickets!

In middle school, I had nothing "grown-up" to fill up my Esprit and LeSportSac purses with, so I stuffed my current must-have purse with Kissing Koolers, candy, and a little mirror shaped like a seashell! My mom fueled my delicious lipgloss habit by pouring many, many Kissing Koolers into my Christmas stocking every year as well as helping me get stocked up with seasonal Kissing Koolers flavors every holiday. Also, every time I got sick she'd get me a new lipgloss at Target while we were waiting for my prescription to be filled at the pharmacy. Right now I'd gladly trade in the boring grown-up stuff in my bag (Purell, checkbook, credit cards, business cards, mini-calendar, etc) for a fabulous stash of Kissing Koolers. Aahhh Peppermint Twist, Watermelon Swirl, Strawberry Fizz, Banana Split, Tutti Frutti, and Cherry Cola (which had a rather naughty color to it if applied heavily)- I can almost taste each different flavor even now. Remember the Valentine's Kissing Koolers? The lipgloss itself was heart-shaped. I had the Raspberry one. So yummy! Maybelline absolutely must bring these back. I've seen leggings and teal mascara come back, so I'm impatiently waiting for the return of Kissing Koolers. Cross your fingers, ladies! If you're 30 going on 13 like me, make room in your Miu Miu purses for this swirled blast from the past...

Dang! I remember the watermelon one made your lips a little bit greenish, but who cared? Best lipgloss ever! I loved Cherry Cola!

I wish there was a LeSportSac thread here Becky! I loved Kissing Coolers too, especially the strawberry fizz!
Melissa - February 18, 2009 - Report this comment
I loved these too! Also remember the Village Lip Lickers tins? They were scented lip balms in a gold slide tin and some had 2 flavors. I miss those too!

I loved these when I was in Junior High. My fave was the Cherry Cola! :)

I was just searching all over google for this lip balm! I had a dream about it last night. I haven't even thought of Kissing Koolers in years! Cherry Cola and Watermelon was my favorite! I'm writing Maybellene right now! My girls would love them as much as me! Yep, I'm another 30 yr old going on 13! lol

My cousin and I had a Kissing Kooler Kids Club when we were eight. We were the only two members until we initiated our two younger sisters who were five at the time. We were regular kids who could sense when someone was in need of help. We would apply our Kissing Kooler, lick our lips, and then we would magicaly have super powers. We were pretty old when we stopped playing. Haha. I am now 25. When Maybeline stopped making them I put what was left of mine in my keepsake box along with my favorite barbies and baby blanket. I have all of them except I didn't know there was a special valentines one.

I am loving this. My favorite one was Cherry Cola and it is true, if you did apply it heavy, it gave that naughty look...hahahaha...I remember my ex loved to kiss me wearing that...I miss them tons. I think we all should write to Maybelline asking for them back..hahahaha...I looked for some, but are no where to be found. I am hoping they come back.

Wow, we all seem to be remembering these and looking them up around the same time. I used to get mine around the corner at the mom&pop drug store. I had and loved them all. Also had the kissing potion roll-on ones too. And the Maybelline "Ribbons" eyeshadows. Those were my 1st eyeshadow colours. I'd wear lt. blue & baby pink on my lids...a look inspired by Jem. =)

I always remember, I was about 6 or 7 years old (Im 28)walking thru downtown Chicago with my mom. When suddenly I found a two dollar bill. My mom told me to keep it, because it was good luck... But no way we walked in to walgreens and I got myself yet another kissin' cooler with the two dollar bill! I loved those things! Girls were addicted to them, and nothing in the market has been able to top them! I hope a maybelline rep reads these, what a way to boost sales for them, and bring back endless memories for us!
Wendy - July 20, 2009 - Report this comment
Omg... I have been looking for these lately. I'm sad to find that I can't buy them on-line any where. My absolute favorite was the tutti frutie. I want them back so bad! I'm glad that Im not the only person missing this product. I will write to maybeline to bring this back.

I remember a "big scandal" when the neighbor girl "borrowed" (stole) my strawberry Kissin' Koolers! Boy was I mad! Got it back though after my mom called her mom and straightened it out.
Megan - July 31, 2009 - Report this comment
I remember my mom gave me the strawberry one for my birthday one year. I remember the tip was shaped like a heart. I am not sure if that is the way all of them are but I remember it...anyway I took it to school and this girl with big wet funky lips asked to smell it because it smelled so delish...I handed it to her and she smeared it all over her lips! I was pissed. Needless to say I told her she could have it and when I went home I cried to my mom and she got me another one.
Roxy - August 17, 2009 - Report this comment
Oh my gosh! I miss this lip gloss so much! I remember that the first ones I ever got were the Tutti Frutti and Strawberry Fizz flavor. After this, I got completely hooked! Later on I bought Watermelon, Peppermint, Banana Split, and Cherry Cola. *sighs* I still vividly remember how upset I was when this girl in my class stole my tube of watermelon (a common occurence obviously judging from the other posts). Why did Maybelline get rid of this product? It was absolutely wonderful and I've never seen anything like it since.

I had one that was half mint and half chocolate. Smelled good but tasted weird. The other girls thought it was so cool because it had "kissin" in the name.
Elipey Cosmetics - November 07, 2009 - Report this comment
I was typing in Kissing Coolers as my client was interested in the "Banana Split" Flavor. I just sold her everything I had, Tutti Fruiti, Strawberry Fizz, Cherry Cola, and Peppermint Twist. We do sell discontinued lines and as she bought everything I had, I do not have any at this time but you may check my site from time to time to see if I have added any.

Please bring back kissing potion.
Oreoh - December 08, 2009 - Report this comment
I had those too, but never got quite all of them by the time they stopped making them. I also still have an amount of them today. I gradually have used them. My very first one was given to me at Christmas-Tuti Fruity.They had three packs during the holidays or maybe just Christmas with peguins,wheel,hearts on the front design. Double flavors, the sparkly collection what I call them. Anyway they were great!

So I ordered four unopened kissing Koolers on E-bay!! I had too! payed about $40.00 for them and it was so worth it!! But I am kind of curious, do you think they are still ok to use, being as they are so old?? any input??
Joy - February 21, 2010 - Report this comment
I remember going shopping with my sister at Target and ALWAYS buying this fabulous product!! We ALWAYS bought the strawberry and watermelon. We live in Vancouver BC and I never saw them for sale there.. but when we would bring them to school our gfs even made up a song about them.. They smelled so fabulous and I remember the cool marbling on all them! it was our bedtime ritual to apply whenever we went to bed!! Ahhhhhh! MEMORIES
Sparkina - April 24, 2010 - Report this comment
Oh, I remember these soothing, creamy, oh-so-glossy, flavorful and fragrant lip pomades in their lipstick-like containers. I felt like quite the glamourpuss when I applied them. Faves were Cherry Cola (maroon), Strawberry Fizz (Ringwaldian pink, smelled and tasted very sweet and yummy, more like strawberry candy rather than strawberries the fruit)Tutti Frutti (purple, smelled/tasted like tropical punch) and Peppermint Twist (red). I wish Maybelline would reinstate them

boy o' boy do I miss these. Now that all of us probably have daughters that are close to the age we were when we used Kissing Coolers we are looking for them again. I still in all these years can not find any lip stuff I love like them-and I remember the banana split. I think it mattered where you lived because on the west coast I found different ones than the midwest. One of my boyfriends in HS always wanted to know what flavor I had on before kissing..Ah the memories. Jem, Caboodles, butterfly clips, charm braclets, and Kissing Coolers....

Hmmm....was I the only one on here that used to eat hers? I would only get the watermelon and then I would love it so much I would eat it! LOL!
TinaV - September 18, 2011 - Report this comment
I had several of these but my favorite by far was a Dreamsicle one. I guess it was limited edition or something. The tube was light orange and the gloss was a light peachy color swirled with white. Man I loved that thing. I remember using it at camp - brings back a lot of memories. Many years later in 2007 I went into The Body Shop and bought a Mango lip butter. It reminded me a LOT of that dreamsicle kissing kooler. Wish they would bring em back :(

I had the caramel flavored heart shaped one. It was brown. That and I loved tutti fruity the best! I carried them in my jean purse and in my jean jacket! Now I am 35. It would be awesome to have the tutti fruity again..... Would have to hide it from my kids :-D By the way, I still use my purple and pink Caboodle!!! Why not, it has lasted and is perfect.

I remember these.!!! loved them and their cute cases. I too had a heart shaped one that JenB reminded me of, but I can't remember the colors. I have recently found them for sale from, just search 'maybelline kissing koolers'. Finding this old favorite lipgloss online has made me want to find other retro cosmetics i loved. Do you all remember the shine free line that was in cute cases of purples and pinks? I remeber a powder or blush in a pot with a round sort of knob for the handle of the brush.. I can't get a clear picture in my mind of it but am looking desperately online for any pics.

Oh man! I absolutely loved Kissing Koolers! I remember getting my first tube of Tutti Frutti and Strawberry Fizz when I was in fourth grade. I had always wanted to try them before that but my mom wouldn't let me. Anyways, once I tried the fabulous Kissing Koolers I was hooked! Now I'm 31 but I'd run out to buy Kissing Koolers if Maybelline ever relaunches them.

Tutti Frutti was the best!! I was wearing it the first time I met my hubby (21 years ago) and he always asks about it. Says he will never forget how delish it smelled, and how it reminds him of that first day we met. I wish they would bring them back!

Hol-leee moley!!!!! I just about burst into tears when I saw the picture of them!!! I will always remember how "grown-up" I felt when mom would buy these for me because it was from Maybelline and that was alot more "grown-up" than Bonnie Bell :) Don't get me wrong...I loved and still love Bonnie Bell, but to get make-up from the same section of the store that your mom got hers when you were like 7 years old was a BIG DEAL back then!!! Especially when there was a tint of color in the gloss not just clear LoL. Ohhh I miss these! Bring them back to us Maybelline!!!!
