EOS Alice In Wonderland Limited Edition Lip Balm Set Review!

Hey everyone! As you can see from the title, today I'm going to be reviewing the new Alice In Wonderland themed EOS lip balms. I didn't hear about these until I saw photos of them popping up all over Instagram. Once I saw them I decided to run out to Target the next day and find them. Turns out my local Target didn't get them in yet which I found out after running around the beauty isles for 15 minutes, lol. So, a week later I took a trip to the store again and finally found them!

The set comes with three balms. They all have Alice In Wonderland inspired names. Starting from the top is Sweet Vanilla Nonsense, Watermelon Wonderland, and Blueberry Potion. I was most excited for the vanilla scent but in my opinion, it isn't as strong as the others. The other two are strong enough so you can smell them but not overpowering. Blueberry Potion smells like something familiar but I can't put my finger on it.

The packing of these were super cute! It was so simple yet the little Alice pattern was adorable. Also, once you remove the packaging there is a little sort of shadow box. It has graphics of characters and such from the movie, and the quote, "Very few things indeed were really impossible". It repeats that phrase in French which I enjoyed since I do speak it from taking it in high school. I keep it on a shelf now cause I think it's a cute little decoration. Now onto the actual packing of the balms. They're still in their normal egg-shaped case which I have always loved. The only thing that really changed is the little finger grip on the sides. This time those grips are in the shape of a Mickey Mouse head. I was kinda disappointed by that part since this is Alice In Wonderland themed. I know it's a Disney movie but still. It would have been cute if the packing looked like characters from the movie like the Cheshire Cat or something.

Overall, I really like these as much as the others I own. The only thing I wish is that the packaging was a little more creative but I guess that's a minor complaint. If you can't find these at your local Target, they will be available at Walgreens,, and this upcoming November. Have you picked up this set? If not, happy hunting!
