Move over, Lip Smackers: Your Dr. Pepper chapstick has nothing on Paula Deen’s new butter-flavored lip balm. Yes, that’s right: The Queen of Southern Cuisine has been slammed for using too much butter in her preposterously unhealthy recipes, but she doesn’t seem to let it phase her, or stop her from expanding her empire into the providence of beauty products.
Some say she’s also selling flavors like key lime pie and banana pudding, which seem somewhat more acceptable as lip balm flavors, but still: We’re not going to get over the insanity of butter-flavored beauty products anytime soon. There’s something that just seems vaguely unhealthy about getting used to the taste of butter on your face all day long. Plus, didn’t Marlon Brando and Maria Schneider make everyone want to keep butter far away from the realm of personal care products forever?
