Review: Maybelline New York Baby Lips lip balm

What is it?
Moisturizing lip balm with SPF 20, moisturizes lips for for a full 8 hours, visibly renewed lips in 4 weeks. 

Retail Price: $2.99

Where to buy: Most retailers and drugstores.

Pink Punch, Cherry Me

My thoughts and experience:
I love the fun and simple packaging of these lip balms! They look so retro and colorful. I will be reviewing the  Cherry Me and Pink Punch flavors.
Cherry Me is a fun cherry tinted lip balm, which smells like dried cherries. I'm not big into the cherry flavored things, but this one smelled very light and pleasant. It adds a bit of color to my lips to brighten it up a little. Pink Punch is a soft barbie pink tinted lip balm with a light fruit punch scent. Both colors show up with a tinted sheen of color.

 The lip balms glide on really easily when applied to "healthy lips"; the color stays on for a good 2-3 hours.

Although it says that it is clinical strength, along with lip renewal, I did not see this happening. When applied on a dried flaky lip, the color shows up in patches and does not look give a healthy look at all. I also did not see "renewal" results, nor the 8 hour moisture as claimed. I would probably reapply about every hour or so.
I would give this a 2.5 out of 5 stars because of this issue. Other than that, when applied on healthy looking lips, they add an amazing tint color and stays on for a decent amount of time. I would highly recommend using it over another lip balm though.

  1. I am dying to try Pink Punch. I have only tried one of the Baby Lips Lip Balms-Peach Kiss, and although I didn't find that they moisturized my lips enough, the hint of color was nice. Pink Punch is definitely a color that is right up my alley :)
