Maybelline Baby Lips




Unless you've been living under a rock for most of 2013, you would of heard of Maybelline's latest venture Baby Lips. They retail at £2.99 in most drugstores which for a simple lip balm is on the pricey side. I'm use to picking up a pot of Vaseline for 99p. I couldn't resist the child like packaging, the bright colours and a buy one get one half price offer in Boots, I along with everyone else picked up some to try. My local boots were down to the last dregs by the time I got there so I only managed to pick up Intense Care which as you can see from the above photo I have repurchased.

Next on my list to try were the tinted balms. I got Pink Punch and Cherry Me again when they went back on offer in Boots. I'm not a massive fan of tinted lip balms and find these are a bit too pink on my lips. Pink Punch is a Barbie pink colour and leaves a really pigmented bright pink tint on my lips which surprised me as I didn't think it would be that noticeable. Save to say I'm not a fan and felt a bit like a child with those tiny lipsticks you could get in princess packs. Cherry Me is a deep pink colour and leaves a raspberry tint on the lips and smells like cherry drops. Out of the two, I use Cherry Me the most because of the smell but that's it's only good quality and I only use on it on my lips before bed.

I have most recently picked up Hydrate and another Intense Care because they're handy to keep on me while I'm at work and they also contain a SPF.They promise to give intense care and hydrate your lips for 8 hours but I find myself reapplying a lot more frequently than that. My lips do feel softer but it feels as if there is more a film over my lips than any soaking in goodness.For their price I'm pretty disappointed in this product. I did repurchase Intense Care because of the Boots offer and like I said they're handy for work but that's about it. I'm a big Vaseline fan and always have been and these have not converted me to change my little metal tin ways.

  2. I got the intense care one in the glamour box last month and really like it. Makes my lips soft and shiny but haven't noticed any great intense care results from them. Need to see a few swatches of the tinted ones before I decide to buy them. Not sure if I'm a tinted lip balm kinda girl!

    1. That's my favourite out of all of them and I do keep it on me but I haven't noticed anything great with them. Just included swatches for you lovely xx

  3. My lips in the winter always get chapped, a consequence of being allergic to the sun. I will have to try the intensive care one

    1. The intensive care one is the one I use the most..But more because it's easier using it at work than using a Vaseline pot xx

  4. This post leaves me still undecided as to whether I should try them or not... I'm like you though, I love my Vaseline far too much!

    I have a new post about a Westfield Haul, would love to hear your feedback!

  6. These are great but like wise we do love vaseline!

    Like how you've described the packaging 'child like'. They are certainly very colourful :-)

    1. They are colourful which is what attracted me to them lol and the million other reviews about them! Thanks for commenting xx

  7. I have the cherry one and I like it but in my opinion it is just a cheap tinted lip balm - the caudalie lip conditioner and the nuxe reve de miel lip balms are soooo much better! x

  8. I completely agree, they were so over hyped I was left disappointed. I also have Pink Punch and Cherry Me and keep one in my handbags just in case but yep the colour of Pink Punch is ridiculously barbie like, I have to be so careful when using it!

    1. Pink punch isn't a great colour at all! It's staying in my lip colour box for a while I think xx

  9. I really like Cherry Me, I wasn't too big a fan of the other colours. It works very nicely for my lips but I don't think they are as great as everyone was expecting.

    I love your blog, followed!

  11. I found the same with regards to the '8 hour' claim! I'm always reapplying the stuff, don't think they're quite what everyone raves about!
