My Lips Scream for Ice Cream and These Cute Tokidoki Gelato Lip Balm Stains

Published in: Lips, Makeup, Tokidoki

Truth: sometimes I like products just because they’re cute.


And if they’re cute and on sale, like Tokidoki’s Gelato Lip Balm Stain in Skeletina ($5, regularly $9), I’m liable to like them even more. 🙂

I half expected Skeletina to have a strong candy grape fragrance, but this pretty purple, moisturizing balm is just barely grape scented and flavored.

If grapes aren’t among your favorite things, the Gelato Lip Balms also come in Pink Martini (a pink with a cherry flavor), Donutella (a peach with a melon flavor) and Ciao Ciao (a colorless balm with a minty flavor).


When I checked earlier today, all four shades were sold out online at, but you never know. They might have ’em in stock at your local store.

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,


P.S. 🙂

Happy Fourth of July

    I passed on these though I LOVE tokidoki cosmetics (Simone is pretty good looking too ;D ). I love tokidoki so much I have a tokidoki x MetroPCS phone and one of his ‘heart-and-crossbones’ sticker on the toe of my show.XD Glad you like them though, Karen! 😀

    I just snapped up two of these when I saw them on sale! I’m so sad that tokidoki is pulling out of Sephora, although I heard it was always supposed to be a limited-time thing. PLUS, I’m wearing the same barettes in my hair today 🙂 Lookin’ good, hahaha.

    Donutella should taste like a donut…

    or Nutella!

  9. Man! I’ve seen this on sale but I totally skipped over it…now I’m kicking myself–it looks pretty on you! And I love a good lip tint! I swear I think it’s the packaging that got to me…

    Ooh, I love grape. And the Tokidoki stuff is just so cute. I still think of the Donutella pink eyeliner sometimes. And I still have to repeat “do not buy that; you won’t wear it!”. HAHA!

  18. artemis says:

    sooo cute! love the lil drawings

  19. Melissa says:

    I must be a bit late, because I checked Sephora’s site and all they have let is a clear balm. Oh well! Looks great on you though, Karen!
