Maybelline Baby Lips - Pink Punch, Peach Kiss, Cherry Me


Who doesn't love a lip balm? I know I'm a bit late to put up this post but it just seemed that this was the product everyone was reviewing and I just wanted it to die down a little before I put mine up! Now if you've been hiding under a rock for the past, god knows how long, then you will not know about the infamous Maybelline Baby Lips. But honestly even if you have been hiding then you probably still would have heard about them, that's how insane the launch in the UK was. Personally I was very excited for these to arrive in the UK and took to the Boots website the day they launched and ordered myself three as they were on a 3 for 2 offer. Also because I ordered before a 2pm that day it meant I was able to collect the very next day which I thought was very impressive delivery.

There are six in total, 3 of which I ordered as I said. The three I purchased were; Pink Punch, Peach Kiss and Cherry Me. First off the packaging, to be honest I know it's nothing special but I rather like it. It's a plastic, brightly coloured tube and the lid again has brightly coloured wording which really stands out. One of which, either the writing or tube colour, match the actual colour of the product inside (on the tinted balms anyway) which is a small but nice concept.

I picked up the three which are meant to be the tinted ones which is definitely what I was most excited about. They are only tinted lip balms so they're not going to give you a full coverage on the lips but they definitely do leave a lovely sheer colour to the lips. I definitely prefer Cherry Me and Pink Punch for the best colour pay off and I personally don't feel that Peach Kiss leaves me with any colour on the lips. You can see from the swatches on my hand that they are not fully pigmented but absolutely do have some colour pay off to them. This seems to come off more so on the hand than the lips but saying that I do love the colour left on the lips. I also apologise for the fact that I have no pictures of me wearing any of these products, I honestly did try but none of the pictures came out at all home I wanted them and I didn't think they did this product any justice so unfortunately I didn't include them.

I believe these claim 8 hours of hydration on the lips which I definitely don't agree with but they are very moisturising and do leave my lips feeling really soft. But they honestly do not last that long. They really are a great lip balm and lots of fun but aren't lips balms one of those products that so many people are addicted to buying and barely ever finish one? Well I am anyway, ha ha, so I don't feel like I'll ever actually finish one but let's hope. Another fun thing about these lip balms is the scent, the Cherry Me one smells lovely! Since purchasing one of these is always in my handbag for simple and quick application with a slick of colour.

Maybelline products are still 3 for 2 at Boots so if you are still yet to try these then I definitely recommend them and I would love to try the non tinted hydrate ones from Baby Lips. I'd love to know your thoughts on these and what you think of the Hydrate balms if you've tried them! :-)

    1. Definitely agree! Think I need to get my hands on a hydrate one to compare the difference without the tint! xo

  2. These are really nice, I can see why there was so much hype as they look so unique. I have two of these but I probably won't buy anymore :)

    1. Yes definitely, think it was also due to the very long waiting game we played :) x
