Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm is a product I have been hearing about for what seems like forever. I was at CVS not too long ago and they had a two for one sale (or something like that) so I decided it was time to check them out for myself.
There are a few different kinds of these I have discovered from their website. There are the original ones, Crystal ones, Electro ones and a medicated one called Dr. Rescue. They are all packed with hydrating ingredients and claim to last for 8 hours. Most of them have some kind of really light tint to them. I decided to try out two original shades called Oh Orchid! and Petal Rebel and two of the limited edition Crystal shades (these have micro-crystal particles in them) called Pink Quartz and Mirrored Mauve.
Oh Orchid! is a light purple. Of the four I tried this was the most pigmented one.
Petal Rebel is a pale pink.
Pink Quartz is a very pale bright pink.
Mirrored Mauve is a light purple/pink.
I really like these as a straight up lip balm. They remind me a lot of the formula of the Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm, which I use all the time during the day. The lasting 8 hours thing isn’t true, at least for me. They last maybe 2 hours before I feel like I need more. I do like that they have all these different tints but honestly, they are so incredibly pale that you can barely tell any difference between the colors on my lips. The crystal ones show just barely a hint of shimmer. I love the lemonade-like scent and of course the packaging is really cute and kind of makes you want them all. I am curious about the Electro ones since they supposedly are neon.
You can find them at drugstores and they are around $4.50 each.
Have you tried these yet? Any favorite tints for you?
