I’d like to think myself out of the habit of falling for hyped up products, but alas, as soon as I heard that the Maybelline Baby Lips were coming to the UK I immediately made a mental note of which one I wanted. I have so many lip balm products that really I could not justify buying another, yet at just £2.99 and the promising factor of 8 hours hydration I found myself wanting to try one.
First of all, I love the packaging! I can easily be how the packaging could be loved and hated yet for my part I really like it. The bright colours and bold text is an instant hit with me as I have nothing like this at all within my beauty collection.
I had initially only intended to buy the ‘Hydrate’ version as I suffer with dry lips pretty much constantly. I use the NUXE Rêve de Miel of a night time yet I find that too heavy during the day, therefore I thought the hydrate version would offer me my daytime solution. As they were on 3 for 2 at Superdrug I decided to pick up another in Pink Punch as I wanted to see what the colour pay off was like with my mom choosing Peach Kiss as her shade.
Upon application of Pink Punch I was really surprised at how shiny it was, this I felt was really nice and pretty with it not being sticky in the slightest. The colour pay off was good too, in fact, I’m quite surprised as to how much I like it therefore I think I will probably try and find some images of Cherry Me online as I’ve heard a lot of people mention that particular shade. Pink Punch has a slightly fruity scent which isn’t that noticeable to be honest, I would have liked this to have been a bit stronger. I have noticed that Peach Kiss is much less pigmented with this creating a subtle wash of colour over the lips, to me it wasn’t really that noticeable but it still did look pretty and quite natural on; I wouldn’t hesitate to buy that one for myself.
Of course the Hydrate version is a clear lip balm which has so far being really moisturising, I think it is lovely as a base before a lipstick is applied; to me this smells the same as Pink Punch yet tastes a bit like lemonade. I doubt very much these will last 8 hours, I mean we’re all drinking, eating and who knows what else therefore re-application is needed, however I have noticed that my lips still feel quite moisturised after a good two hours which for just £2.99 I’m pretty happy with.
Has anyone else caved into the hype of these? I think they are worth it in general as the price is very good, the packaging in my opinion is really unique and fun and overall they are doing a relatively good job. I’m glad I have the two I’ve chosen, I can’t say I’ll be rushing out to buy any more at the moment as I’m pretty satisfied with my two.
