Maybelline Baby Lips

I was so determined not to jump on this bandwagon. I've known about Baby Lips for a long time now and I couldn't understand why people raved about them so much. I have tried a countless number of lip balms and I must say that none have stood out to me, nor have any done anything to make me go "WOW!". I was literally like, "But it's just a coloured lip balm...what's the big deal?"

Whilst in France I ordered myself a couple of bits from Boots and thought that for £2.99 I might as well try these things and see what all of this fuss is about. I ordered myself Cherry Me (pictured, orange) as it looked quite heavily pigmented and I figured that whether or not I fell in love with it I'd still use it as I love a good lip balm in my handbag/at the side of my bed/before I apply make up.

For the first couple days I didn't understand. It really is just a lip balm that adds a bit of pink to your lips. However, after one weeks worth of use I can confirm that I am addicted to using this. I don't know if it's the pink sheen that is added to my lips, the gorgeous cherry scent that reminds me of when I was little, or the fact that it only cost me £2.99 that makes me love it so much. But whatever it is, it made me want to buy three more. To apply, they glide on like a lip balm should do, but they're finish is far glossier and in my opinion, less sticky.









After buying Intense Care, Pink Punch and Peach Kiss I can confirm that this range is worth the hype. They're really hydrating and smooth and you don't seem to go through loads to get a good covering. Their longevity is great too, particularly the more pigmented ones - colour stays put even after eating. My personal favourite is Pink Punch. It gives a bright pink colour to my lips as well as keeping them super soft. I've been using it all week as a go-to lip colour and it's just a bonus that it' hydrating too!

EDIT/GETTING MY FACTS STRAIGHT: So I recently found out that Baby Lips contain petroleum so they can't be "hydrating" as such. However I have to disagree with those that say Baby Lips aren't hydrating at all. They don't add moisture to your lips as such but they do lock it in. I am a firm believer that without Vaseline my lips would be far drier than they are, and seeing as baby lips contain the same ingredients, the same goes for them. Also, they don't dry my lips out like some lipsticks can do, nor do they leave my lips feeling the same as they did before I applied them. So therefore, to me - they're hydrating! 

I really want to buy the rest of this range but I'm on a spending ban at the minute so it will just have to wait! I reckon I have enough to keep me going, don't you? ;)

Have you tried this range yet? Were you as impressed as me? You can buy Baby Lips here.

Lots of love, lovelies.

  4. I'll have to try these! I always see them at the store, but never know whether to buy them. I'm addicted to Revlon's Just Bitten Kissable balm stains at the moment, but I can see myself falling into these as well! :)
