The Maybelline Baby Lips are one of those products that is surrounded by hype. Before they even hit the UK everyone had heard of them and was itching to try them and I expect like me you haven’t stopped hearing about them over the past few weeks. I must admit I didn’t really get why there was so much hype about a lip balm and I wasn’t bothered about trying this product when it did launch in the UK. However, when I was in Boots the other day I saw the Baby Lips hanging on a display and thought I’d see what all the fuss was about.
Priced at only £2.99 the Maybelline Baby Lips are super cheap and the packaging is adorable. I love the bright summery colours and graffiti writing which pops out. There are 6 different Baby Lips included in the range but so far I haven’t found them to be widely available. I’ve mostly just seen the clear ones or ‘Pink Punch’ which I will speaking about today.
Pink Punch is a gorgeous bright fuchsia pink shade which at first may seem scary to people who aren’t used to wearing a bright lip colour. However, this shade is perfect for people who love a bit of colour on their lips but don’t want something very bright and obvious because the finish is sheer. This beautiful shade will also appeal to those of you who love a bright lip. It will never be as bright as a fuchsia lipstick but the colour is buildable and you can get a lovely pop of colour on your lips.
The moisturising properties of the Baby Lips are said to provide 8 hours of hydration which is quite some claim but one that I fully agree with. I don’t find it necessary to keep re-applying throughout the day because my lips do not become dry but I do anyway just because of the colour pay off. This is a great two in one product and one that can also be used on the go without a mirror as it is sheer and not messy. The formulation is gorgeously creamy and soft and the smell takes me back to my childhood as it reminds me of Hubba Bubba bubble gum.
So that’s it.. I’ve given into the hype and I must agree the Maybelline Baby Lips are completely worth it. They are brilliant value for money, (only £2.99) give you a gorgeous splash of colour and are great at moisturising your lips.
