    Lip Smackers Is Gone And The World Is Probably Ending

    Lip Smackers — and your childhood — may be dead.

    Markwins International has acquired Bonne Bell and Lip Smacker. It is not yet clear what will be done with the brand.

    This weekend, Markwins International announced that it will acquire Bonne Bell and Lip Smackers.

    WKYC reported that Bonne Bell's distribution facility in Westlake, Ohio will be closing. However, Bonne Bell's distribution affiliate, Aspire Brands, will continue to distribute Lip Smackers in Europe, Asia, and Australia.

    We could be kissing these goodbye.

    We may never again taste the sweet waxiness of the Smackers.

    Cookies 'n Cream could be nothing but a faint, distant memory soon.

    Stock up on Dr. Pepper while you can.

    And use your stash sparingly.

    Because the pain is real.

    For people everywhere, Lip Smackers were the gateway to makeup.
