So… Fidget Spinner Lip Gloss Is Apparently a Thing Now
I can't decide whether what I'm about to tell you is surprising or inevitable, but here goes: You know the fidget spinner, every 21st-century child's favorite stress-relieving toy? Of course you do. Well, apparently, demand for the infamous little object has become so high that even the beauty industry is getting in on the action. Allow me to introduce Glamspin, a new brand that has decided to combine America's love of fidget spinners with America's love of lip gloss to create a fully functioning fidget spinner that contains a tiny pot of lip gloss in each of the three prongs. The flavors include peach whirl, strawberry cyclone, and grape twist, and you can buy the thing for $10 on Glamspin's vibrant website.
To me, the kitschy, brightly colored Glamspin reads as a sort of 2017 take on the flavored Lip Smackers we all enjoyed as kids in the '90s and early 2000s. But, you know, even more extra because we have the internet now. Keep scrolling to learn more about the fidget spinner lip gloss, like why on earth it exists, and how we should feel about it.
It makes perfect sense that the Glamspin is actually the brainchild of a collaboration between viral powerhouse Buzzfeed Product Labs and Taste Beauty, a company that has also created lip glosses for brands like Lucky Charms cereal, Blow Pops, and Finding Dory. A natural fit, no?
Of course, Buzzfeed and Taste Beauty are not the first brands to capitalize on the popularity of the fidget spinner. Beauty YouTuber James Charles uploaded a video of himself trying to use the toy as a contouring tool, and nail artist Natasha Lee created a tutorial on how to do a fidget spinner–themed manicure. (These are merely a couple of examples.)
That being said, fidget spinners are toys for actual children, so who knows how long they'll have a place on the trend cycle. But if you like semi-absurd internet novelties and have 10 bucks to spare, we totally won't judge you for buying one.
