Hello Kitty BBT & Milk Cartons Lip Balms
From high-end imported brands to affordable neighbourhood ones, there’s no denying the universal appeal of bubble tea for Singaporeans.
As another way to express your love for the beverage, Sanrio now has kawaii BBT and milk carton-inspired lip balms to keep your lips moist and supple. Read on to find out more about these novelty items you can add to your beauty collection.
The lip balms
Chances are BBT fans like me would mistake the lip balms for miniature BBT figurines, as they take after the silhouette of the drink.
The packaging has the “flavour” printed on the front, and features a BBT motif that comes with a Sanrio character lid. For example, this Hello Kitty lip balm is strawberry-flavoured, and has a pink colour palette.
What’s more, the “cup” is decked in diagonal stripe patterns, and even the “straw” has reflective swirls.
The Kerropi lip balm has a green apple flavour
Unlike standard lip balms, these ones by Sanrio work slightly differently as you need to twist and pull the “straw” before you can use them. Because of this unique function, the actual lip balm also brings to mind mini popsicles.
The Tuxedo Sam lip balm has a cookie flavour
Whether it is to expand your Sanrio collection or to subtly satisfy your BBT cravings, these adorable lip balms are something fans won’t want to miss. Available in three flavours and Sanrio characters, each BBT-inspired lip balm retails at USD$9.99 (~S$13.40).
Good news for those who can’t resist kawaii items – Sanrio has another set of lip balms shaped like milk cartons.
Available in four flavours ‒ strawberry, banana, cookie, and green apple ‒ the lip balms feature characters like Hello Kitty, Pompompurin, Tuxedo Sam, and Kerropi on the packaging. On top, you’ll find the cap of the lip balm, and at the bottom, there is a spinning gear for you to raise and lower the level of the lip balm.
As these lip balms come in a set, they are packed inside a “truck” that Hello Kitty is driving. She is even holding a loudspeaker as if announcing the arrival of your milk orders.
Add this Sanrio Milk Carton Lip Balm set to your cart at USD$18.99 (~S$26.40).
Keep Your Lips Moist With These Hello Kitty BBT And Milk Carton-Inspired Lip Balms
While many of us spend time and money indulging in BBT to satisfy our sweet tooth, it is also important to provide some TLC to our lips. Keep them moist throughout the day with one of these adorable lip balms.
The lip balms are available for purchase on Claire’s official website, but unfortunately, they do not ship directly to Singapore for now. Instead, interested folks might need to look for freight forwarders that ship to our Little Red Dot.
