Baby Lips – Pink Lolita
I have read quite a few rave reviews of the Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms over on Beauty Review and even though I saw that there were a few negative reviews I thought I would go ahead and try it out anyway. (It also might have something to do with the fact that I left my regular one at home somewhere and needed one for work to keep my lips feeling and looking nice). I bought mine from the Warehouse for $4.20 which I thought was rather reasonable.
Well to get right to it, I really would not buy this again. I bought the Maybelline Baby Lips in pink Lolita a week ago but have noticed no difference in how moisturised my lips feel. This makes me really disappointed, given its 8 hour claim, as in reality it only really left my lips feeling moisturised for an hour or so. I think my expectations were a little bit too high for this product.
The only good things I can say about this lip balm are, that it smells amazing and fruity and I do quite like the tint it gives you when you apply it. Also the packaging is really pretty, which is probably another reason I bought it, as I like girly looking make up products.
To be perfectly honest with you, I actually find that my Blistex lip balms do a much better job and they are slightly cheaper. (Especially at the UC pharmacy because I get a 10% student discount).
In saying that, I will continue to use the Maybelline Baby Lips until it runs out but I don’t think I will be buying again.
