With subzero temperatures and a bad economy, we need an inexpensive pick-me-up that's also useful. Ballmania's new Garden Party lip-balm collection happens to be effective and extremely adorable at the same time. Made with shea butter, aloe vera, vitamins A, C, D3, and E, with SPF 20 thrown in for good measure, the balms keep even the most chapped lips nourished and protected. The paisley, floral, and leopard-print sphere containers with names like Mrs. Baumgartner, Petticoat Luncheon, and Wild Thing are charming without being too juvenile.
