Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well and are having a lovely week so far. So a few weeks ago now i had quite a large shopping spree at Boots, my Dad had given me quite a few vouchers and i though it would be a great idea to go a pick up everything we need for our holiday to LA in a few weeks time...plus pick up a few cheeky bits and bobs for myself haha. So, initially i was on the hunt for some Maybelline Baby Lips but for some reason they were still not on display at all 3 Boots store that i have access to around where i live...so on this occasion i made an excuse to ask a sales assistant and she took me to a drawer completely full of them and made me pick whatever ones i wanted...even though they were not even officially for sale yet haha.
Maybelline Baby Lips is something i am sure a lot of girlies within he beauty community have had their eyes on ever since they were released in the US a few months ago now. I actually put them on my LA Wish List but now they have launched here in the UK there is no need for me to get them now haha...woohoo! There has been a mixture of posts about them so i thought i would also contribute and do a little review on them.
Maybelline Baby Lips | Pink Punch
As you all might know by now, my love for pink lip products is completely endless so yes i had to pick up this beautiful pink Baby Lips in Pink Punch. I would definitely say this is the most pigmented out of the three featured in this post and it does leave a beautiful pink stain to my lips. The shade instantly reminds me of bubble gum and has quite a similar sweet a almost 'punchy' scent much similar to the name itself.
Maybelline Baby Lips | Peach Kiss
A nude is a staple in any makeup bag so i had to give Baby Lips 'Peach Kiss'. It is quite sheer for a nude, it leaves a slight sheen to my lips but nothing in comparison the 'Pink Punch' but it is the type of product i would love to use for those 'no makeup, makeup days' just to add a subtle hint of colour to my lips without it being too over powering or even noticeable. Also, how cute is the name?! I love how all of the names reflect on the shade and are fun, cute and creative.
Maybelline Baby Lips | Hydrate
This is the only non-tinted Baby Lips i purchased and it is in the shade 'Hydrate' and t is one i have been reaching for a lot as i feel it does hydrate my lips a lot more than Pink Punch or Peach Kiss. I have swatched all three Baby Lips in the picture below but obviously being a clear product you will not be able to see it haha but it does feel extremely moisturising on the lips. Also, i really like how the blue packaging reflects on the 'Hydrating' side of the lip balms...the baby blue reminds me refreshing water and it actually does glide on more smoothly than the other two.
I was pleasantly surprised at how hydrating and moisturising they made my lips feel after application, however, i feel you do need to constantly re-apply them to keep the lips moisturised and glossy. They are great for the £2.99 price tag but i do believe they are more of a instant fix rather than something that is going to help your damaged lips. I think they would be great to use in the sunshine as they offer 20 SPF protection and using something with a little tint like 'Pink Punch' would be something different than using say a regular clear lip balm at the beach or by the pool.
The packaging is one of the main things i am drawn too as they look absolutely adorable! I think he bright coloured and creative packaging really attached your eye and in some cases aids within your purchasing decision haha. Lets face it you would instantly find these when searching through your makeup bag and they would definitely inject some fun into your makeup collection. When i first brought them home, opened them up and gave them a try i instantly thought that they reminded me of those 'Baby Makeup Products' that you used to get when you were little in those little gift sets haha. this is not a bad things because obviously they are a lot more better quality but it is just one of those things that just brings back memories of your childhood...something very nostalgic and fun :D
Overall, i have really been enjoying this fun product and i think i would probably purchase some more. Maybelline have just launched some new Limited Edition shades which i will be checking out when i am in LA really soon. If you are looking for something with a little more moisture and overall lip care then you might have to look else but for the £2.99 price i feel this is a great product to throw in your makeup bag on the go. They are just a fun and creative take on a regular lip balm which i don't mind and i am really enjoying.
Hope you all enjoyed this Baby Lips review, i would love to know your thoughts on them and which is your favourite throughout the range if you have tried them!
