Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch | Review

Tuesday, 8 April 2014




Hi Ladies! I realize that I'm very late to the table with this one, but while I was in desperate need of a new lip balm the other day and Baby Lips were the only ones my little Boots had in! I used to have the Hydrate version of these little balms so I was hoping to pick that one up again as a quite liked it, but once again my rubbish Boots only had this one in stock. 

I have to say, at first I didn't see why there was so much hype surrounding the Baby Lips - it's just a lip balm after-all, but I guess the appeal is that they're fun, not too pricey and they look cute. The packaging is quite simple but it's bright and goes with the 'fun' aspect of this product. I also like the fact that it's all plastic so there's no paper tearing and making the product look scruffy when I dig it out of the bottom of my bag. 

As for pigmentation, there's not a lot of it, more of a sheer swipe of colour but I don't really see that as a problem as they are only lip balms and I don't always want loads of colour on my lips. But what you really need to know is, does it do it's job? For me, yes. I don't have terribly dry lips so I'm not in need of an intensive lip balm, so this does the job for me. If you suffer with really dry lips though I'd consider getting something a little better. 

Overall, I do quite like these lip balms, they haven't blown me away but they're fun and they do their job. I have to say I do prefer the Hydrate one to the coloured ones but that's just me.

  1. I only have one of these and I do quite like it but only when my lips arent overly dry or like you say you need something a little better. Love the scents though

  3. I feel totally the same way you do, except to be honest, I've never loved the packaging myself. But I have always found them to be a fine, affordable lip balm but not crazy awesome!

  4. I'm really tempted by these just for the packaging but then I ask myself - is it worth it? (probably yes!)

  5. I don't think it's very moisturising but it does give a nice hint of colour, especially the shade Cherry Me!

  7. I like baby lips, especially the Cherry Me one. I don't think they're amazing, as the colour doesn't last long and they're not very moisturising but I just love the colours too much to not buy them x

  8. I think they're great for a bedside or handbag helper but not just for lips everyday I think xxx

  9. I heard so many great things about these lip balms but honestly, I wasn't too impressed. Sure, they're good but I definitely wasn't blown away. xx

  10. I've tried this before and I really think it doesn't have that moisturizing power. The shade is great though.

    Your blog is so nice and pretty! I personally love it :)

  12. You're like me I think these are a nice product but just don't see the hype. I have one which sits on my desk at work and is great when I'm too lazy to reapply lipstick but adds a bit of colour whilst stopping any dryness.

  14. I never got the hype around these either! I have the same one as you and, although I agree they do the job, I just don't get that excited over these. I will try the hydrate one though since I only have a coloured one and I'll see if that makes a difference :-)
