Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm Review

maybelline baby lips lip balm review swatch pink punch quenched cherry me pink shock

Baby Lips Lip Balms are probably the most hyped up beauty products of 2013. Every beauty blogger has written about them, so it was only a matter of time before I would pick up a few myself. I got these four when I was in the US and wanted to blog about them months ago (hence my tanned arm in the last photo), but then I completely forgot about them and didn’t even tried them out until fall arrived. So yes, this is a very long-overdue post, and now these lip balms are even avaliable in my country! You can get them at Müller, but not where the Maybelline stand is. I found them at the lip balm section.

The thing with these lip balms is… you’re either gonna love them or love them. Nope, that was not a spelling mistake. I wrote ‘love’ two times. I haven’t really read any negative reviews about these products, the only thing that half of the people are bothered about is that they too hyped up. Which doesn’t mean that the products are bad. So, which group do I belong to? I’m kind of in the middle. Yes, there is nothing revolutionalry about these products, they’re only tinted lip balms in a cute packaging after all, but I LOVE them! They are the most buttery and hydrating lip products I’ve ever tried, they smell amazing, and they give such a nice tint to your lips. You can see the swatches of the ones I have (L-R: Pink Punch, Quenched, Cherry Me, Pink Shock) below. As you can see, the colour payoff looks pretty ok for a tinted lip balm, but they actually look even more pigmented on my lips. Minus Quenched. That one is clear, so don’t expect any miracles! 😉

I am a big fan of these and I think they’re great handbag products that instantly make you look a bit more put together while keeping your lips moisturized and protected (they contain SPF 20) throughout the day. So, what are your thoughts on these? Do you love them, think they are overhyped or maybe even hate them? I would love to hear what you think!

    So fini, ampak ne spet takoo zelo boljši od npr. Labella 🙂 Edino embalaža mogoče naredi svoje, kar se mene tiče, padam na srčkane barvite stvari ;Dxx

      Se strinjam, tako zelooo boljši res niso, ampak so pa boljši. Vsaj meni osebno, haha. Pri teh imam rada da so res taki putrasti, medtem ko bi labella bolj voskasta deluje. Pa še všeč mi je, da dajo malo barve od sebe. 🙂

    Jaz sem prebrala 2 negativni oceni, vse ostale pa so bile precej pozitivne. Meni so všeč, ker so vlažilni in to je to, kar jaz iščem pri balzamih. So mi dosti boljši od Labello ali pa od Essence balzamov, se pa strinjam, da tako zelo revolucionarni pa spet niso. Moj najljubši je moder. 🙂

      Evo, točno tako. Men so tudi všeč glih zato ker so tako vlažilni. Labelle so mi nekatere preveč take voskaste/goste. Sej ne vem kako bi razliko opisala… XD

    I have read many bad things about these and I believe they are horrible, their ingredients are really bad and I wouldn't put it on my skin, especially not my lips!

      Really? I haven't read any particularly bad reviews, but as far as the ingredients go, I don't think I can comment on them since I have no clue about which of them are good or bad. The only thing I know is that the products haven't done anything bad to my lips and I enjoy using them.

    Meni Peach Kiss ne ustreza preveč zaradi vonja in bleščic, mi je pa zato moder toliko bolj všeč. Ful bi pa rada poskusila Cherry Me in tale Pink Shock tudi zgleda super 🙂

      Peach Kiss nisem sprobala, ker mi na prvi pogled že ni ravno pritegnil, moj najljubši je pa drugače Cherry Me. Je glih taka fajna barva za jesen. 🙂

    I have the green one called "mint fresh".It has no colour and I thought it would smell mint but it smells almost nothing.It's very soft and moisturising though.I wanted to buy one tinted but I was unsure which one.What do you suggest?xStella from a A Shiny Place

      My current favourite is Cherry Me. It's a bit of a deeper shade and perfect for fall/winter. 🙂

    Mogoče veš kdaj si jih videla? Imajo katere druge kot cherry me in tisto navadno modro (ker ju že imam in jih obožujem :))

      Kakšen mesec nazaj. V barve se pa po pravici povedano nisem spuščala, mi je pa sestra rekla, da je včeraj videla, da imajo še neko limono pa breskev.

    I wrote a review about these lip balms (I had the blue mint one) and I hated it. I thought it was the greatest thing ever but it always left this white film thing between my lips. I switched to Burt's Bee and has never encountered the white film problem ever. The white film only appears when I wear the Baby Lips 🙁
