Maybelline Baby Lips

Makeup August 21, 2013 Naomi

Now unless you have been in a coma for the past year, you cannot have failed to notice all the hype that has surrounded the Maybelline Baby lips.
Long before we got them over here in the UK our American friends have been raving about them, and every youtube Guru that is stateside has featured them in one of her hauls or tutorials.
I personally could not wait for them to get here. Lipstick/Balm/Gloss is my makeup item of choice. I will happily buy three lipsticks that to the untrained eye all look like they are the same shade.

On to the product itself. I decided to go for the tinted versions that are supposed to give you a subtle wash of colour. The colours I have are ‘Pink punch'{light pink},’cherry Me'{red} and ‘Peach kiss'{nude brown}. The other Balms in the range do not contain colour but they do come in a hydrating version, a mint version and an intense care version. These contain a SPF, the tinted versions do not.

The packaging tells us that the ingredients include Aloe, vitamin E, and shea butter, and that they provide you with 8 hours of hydration{ I would take that bit with a pinch of salt}. For me they did make my lips feel soft and hydrated but only for a few hours and then I had to reapply.

Do I like them??? yes I do. The colours are lovely and glossy on the lip, for me they are just very flattering shades that are easy to wear on a everyday use. The taste of them is fruity which I personally love, and they smell amazing. The packaging is very cute and girly and will appeal a lot I think to teen girls.
The only downside for me is that they contain petrolatum which is not the most hydrating of products and can in some cases make dry lips worse.

The price for the Balms is just under the three pound mark. Would I repurchase???.. yes I would, and I am sure they will find their way into my handbag quite a lot.
What do you think of the Maybelline Baby lips.??
