#SBBC Day 10: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm Review

I have heard so much hype over these that when I finally saw them in our local Boots I just had to snap up two of these to try out.


The Product:
Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms has generated a lot of hype over the last few weeks/months and finally got to try them out for myself. I bought two tinted in the colours Pink Punch and Peach Kiss. They are meant to protect and moisturise for up to 8 hours, after one week you are meant to notice a difference in the appearance of your lips. They come in 6 varieties, and the non tinted versions offer SPF. They contain petroleum, and include vitamin E, aloe and shea butter.


The Packaging:
Some may say the packaging looks really cheap with the coloured plastic, but I have to say I think it looks retro and anything that brings me back to the 80's gets a nod. All my favourite lip balms or butters seem to come in a tin but I get a tad bit grossed out sometimes dipping my finger into them so trying the Baby Lips was a welcomed change.

Pink Punch

Does It Work:
For me it's a big fat NO! I don't like to be negative but I have to be honest and bring to you my true opinion on these. I believe the petroleum in these products let the Baby Lips down, I find that petroleum just sits on top and protects like a balm so this doesn't feel like it is going deep into the skin to work. I have to re-apply every few hours as the claim of 8 hours is by no means true for me. I have been using them for over a week and now I have decided to go back to my old reliable.

Peach Kiss

Overall Verdict:
Pink Punch is an awful garish pink colour that does nothing but make your lips look like they are in a bad state of repair. The colour just seems to bunch up in places so this get a big thumbs down. When it starts to fade it looks really blotchy.
Peach Kiss is more subtle and I can live with this but I don't have the patience to keep reapplying during the day as I would need to every 2 hours or less to feel that it is doing the job.
I will not buy these again and it has put me off trying the other 4 variations in the collection. So I think the Baby Lips are just a lot of unnecessary hype.

Price:
€4.49

  2. Completely agree with you on these, found the one I got absolutely rubbish. I do like the packaging too, I love the colours & font, but the stuff itself is dire! x

    1. I was so disappointed by them and can't understand all the hype over them! Giving a bad review makes me feel bad but it had to be done unfortunately :( x
