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!
