The trend of restaurants and food brands coming out with merch continues and this time, it’s Applebee’s. They have come out with a makeup line. Why? Anyone’s guess. But because it’s National Wing Day and National Lipstick Day, this is how they decided to celebrate.
The restaurant has teamed up with skincare and makeup brand, Winky Lux, and come out with Saucy Gloss. Personally, I would like to know who came up with that horrifying name, but let’s get to what these lip glosses actually are.
The line features four different lip glosses and they are inspired by Applebee’s wing sauces. Each gloss is $18 or $65 for the set of four on the Winky Lux website. The color names include Get Me Hot Buffalo, Sweet Chile Kiss, Be My Honey Pepper, and Honey BBQ-T.
The Get Me Hot Buffalo is inspired by Applebee’s Classic Buffalo sauce and is described as a “creamy coral.” The Sweet Chile Kiss is inspired by the Sweet Asian Chile sauce and is a deep red with golden specks. Be My Honey Pepper is a honey color with a shimmer in it and inspired by the Honey Pepper sauce. And finally, the Honey BBQ-T is a dark red-brown and inspired by the Honey BBQ wing sauce.
Applebee’s x Winky Lux collab for new lip gloss line
They are, fortunately, not flavored in any way. The flavor names are bad enough. Imagine if they were flavored! Or scented. The horror!
But there is more. To celebrate the launch of the new lip gloss line, Applebee’s has released a music video for a new song, “Taste My Face.” You thought it couldn’t get worse. It just did.
The music video also introduces the four single performers and tells people to “slide into their DMs.” That does not seem like a good idea considering how the internet is, but good luck to them. Hopefully, they don’t get too many creepers.
