Maybelline Baby Lips | Worth The Hype?

Wednesday, 25 September 2013



Hello Lovelies! Before you all say it, I do realise that I am a little late to jump on the Babylips bandwagon and I did say that I wouldn’t even bother trying Babylips as it is only a lip balm after all. I received this product in a box of Maybelline products that we got in our LFW goodie bags as Maybelline were one of the sponsors this year and I wasn’t sure whether I should post a review on it as pretty much everyone and their cat has beaten me to it, but a few of you said that you would still like to hear my opinion on this hyped up product, well, ask and you shall receive...

Like I said, I received this product in a box of Maybelline products so I did not get to choose which one I got as it was part of a make up look which you could create with the products in the box, but I probably would have still chosen this one anyway. I was given ‘Hydrate’ which is the clear lip balm in the range. One thing I do love about this product is the smell, it smells fresh and fruity and not too sickly sweet like a lot of strawberry lip balms I've tried in the past. I also like the finish that the balm gives to your lips – it glides on effortlessly and leaves a kind of shiny effect on your lips. I’m not sure if this is true for all of the products in the Babylips range as this one is supposed to be hydrating, so this one may be a little dewier than some of the others.

However, I hate the packaging of this product. I know a lot of people love the packaging of the Babylips as they are fun, colourful and cute but I just think it looks so cheap and prefer the packaging of some of my other lip balms. Although, because it is plastic I don’t mind just chucking it in my bag as I’m not worried it will get all messy, etc and I wouldn't be too bothered if it did.

So, was it worth the hype? I don’t think so. Don’t get me wrong, I do like this product and I have been using it and will continue to use it but it’s nothing special. It hasn't changed my life or my make up routine and really, it’s just a lip balm. I think the only reason these products were so hyped up was because we couldn't get them for so long, had they been available in the UK the whole time I don’t think anyone would have been too fussed about them. Overall, These are just fun, cute little lip balms but that’s all they are, and if I’m honest I've tried way better but I do still like them and I think I’ll keep this one in my handbag for when I feel like my lips need a little bit of help.

  1. When these first came to the UK, I couldn't wait to get my hands on one. But after seeing so many reviews of it, I figured it was nothing too special and it was more of a novelty than anything else. Really glad I didn't get one haha.

    1. I agree, I think it is more of a novelty. I wouldn't have bought one just because it is only a lip balm but as this was in a goodie bag, I may aswell make use of it and add my opinion! xx

    1. I've heard a lot of people get that, this one doesn't dry out quickly but I think this is maybe because it is the hydrating one. Maybe the flavored ones dry out quicker, I'm not sure as I haven't tried them! xx

  3. I have to agree on the packaging. Its colourful yeah but I think it looks like something cheap a little girl would get in her play set. I saw it in Superdrug after a few reviews but I didn't get the urge to pick it up. I use Lancome Baume in Love and yeah its pricey but you definitely get what you pay for. I swear by it and Nivea Lip Butter.

    Thanks for a good honest post Becky.

    1. The packaging does put me off buying it because it is quite babyish. I love my Burts Bee's one, this one just doesn't compare and was a slight let down although it is a good lip balm. xx
