Do you remember tasty vintage Maybelline Kissing Potion, Kissing Glosses, Kissing Slicks, Kissing Sticks and other “kissing” makeup/beauty products from the 70s & 80s?

This super-popular line of sweet-flavored lip glosses and lip balms came in flavors like mint & bubblegum, strawberry🍓& cherry 🍒, cola & root beer, and orange🍊& watermelon🍉. There was even a Kissing Fresh spray breath freshener to go along with them!

While you can’t scratch ‘n sniff this page (like you could with these scented retro stickers) to get the memory of the fragrance, you can at least take a look down a delicious little memory lane here.

  1. HLio I am from Israel . I’m looking for a kiss Potion liKe in the 70′-90′ .whith rollball.
    I can not find it in Israel anymore.
    ‫if you can tell me where I can find it.
    I was Try buy it from ebay, but they tell me TheCan’t to send me to Israel. please help me to find a solution to bring and send me to israel. thank you very much

    1. You may wish to look online for tint cosmetics, they carry assorted vintage lip balms and gloves like the one you described here.

    2. I’m sorry, Lia, the company I just recommended is tinte cosmetics, not tint. So try tinte cosmetics online and you will find the lipglosses you have described.

  2. Maybelline used to have a lipstick called Peppermint Ice…I wore it in the 80s….loved it!! I have been trying to find it or something like it for awhile….any ideas???

  3. I remember Kissing Potion. I can still remember the scents. The actual gloss was pretty sticky but I loved it. I think I tried every flavor.

  4. Tinte has redone a lot of these except, sadly, Kissing Slicks (the wand lip gloss version) and the Breath Spray. The wand lip gloss version had the most incredible vanilla flavor that smelled so good and tasted even better, a scent that I totally associate with getting ready for Friday night football games! Wish they’d bring those back, too!
