The return of the cherry chapstick…
Yes, once relegated to the depths of ‘50s kitsch, you can just imagine it being the ONLY cosmetic in Sandy’s purse as she headed out to meet Danny…yes I’m aware that I’m discussing two entirely fictional people. Today the kooky classic has made a giant leap back into coolness mainly helped by a little lady who goes by the name of Katy Perry.
For those of you not familiar with the I Kissed a Girl singer (honestly, where have you been?), let me bring you up to speed: she sang about, you guessed it, kissing a girl with cherry chapstick on.
Obviously, there’s much more to Ms Perry than meets the eye (or should it be lips?); she’s now vying with Chloë Sevigny for quirky coolness, but, let’s face it, for now, she’ll always be known as the girl who started the cherry chapstick revolution.
We’re not entirely sure how cherry chapstick brands will cope with this new breed of fan but heck, it’s advertising that money can’t buy!
