Wouldn’t you like to be a Pepper, too?


Yeah, so, I am addicted to lip gloss.


I’m completely incapable of walking into a Rite Aid, CVS Pharmacy, Target or just about any store without purchasing some form of lip gloss. I’m pretty sure I bought lip gloss at a PetSmart once. If I totaled up all the money I’ve spent on lip gloss throughout the years I could pay off my student loan (like that will ever happen).

I am constantly buying different brands and colors, ranging from the crazy cheap to slightly pricey, but there is one constant: Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker.

I know, right? Apparently, I have the cosmetic taste of a 10-year old girl. I might as well get one of those Cabooble make-up kits, dab on some Love’s Baby Soft and call it a day. I’m kinda embarrassed when I buy it. When I go to the register to pay, I hide the Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker under other items such as adult diapers and Monistat 7.

I’m sorry, but I love Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker. It’s moisturizing with just a hint of color. I’ve been using it since college. I go into stores and buy fancier (it’s for actual grownups) lip gloss, but I always go back to the Dr. Pepper Lipsmacker.

I don’t even drink Dr. Pepper. I need to find a nice Cabernet Sauvignon Lipsmacker or a Guinness Lipsmacker.

I'm a writer/podcaster/mother/goober in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, go on adventures with my mighty, mighty good man David and my awesome autistic son, Calvin, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.

  1. lip gloss with olive oil is the best because it can moisturize your lips as well `’~

  2. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something informative to read?
