Maybelline Baby Lips
It's testament to how good budget/drugstore brands have become in recent years that we wait with bated breath for cult products to reach our shores from the US. We have had the Maybelline Colour Tattoos, the Revlon Kissable Balm Stains and now we have the Maybelline Baby Lips* at our fingertips!
Hitting Maybelline stands in August, there will be six flavours and three tints to choose from. As with most import lines, we don't get the massive choice that our American friends do but, there is more than enough here to whet your appetite I feel. The six we have are; Lemon Basil (Hydrate), Mint (Mint Fresh), Cherry Almond (Intense Care), Passion Fruit (Pink Punch), Cherry (Cherry Me) and Peach (Peach Kiss). Hydrate and Pink Punch are pictured here.
To keep your lips baby soft, Baby Lips are formulated with aloe, honey and shea butter. I find them okay as a lip balm, I'm not as enamoured with them as, say, the Nuxe Reve de Miel but, they do the job. Tint-wise, I don't find them to give much, if any, obvious colour to my lips or even the back of my hand when swatched so, I wouldn't recommend them for that purpose. However, at €3.99, it's nice to see that they haven't made them seem like a premium product and it's worth having a few to dot around your handbag/car/desk etc.
