When I go anywhere special I will make an effort and wear lipstick and do my makeup properly but for everyday I much prefer just using a good bb cream, some mascara and a tinted lipbalm for a little colour on my lips.
I wear gloss occasionally but I much prefer the convenience and ease of a tinted lip balm. Maybelline baby lip balms are fantastic and they come in a wide variety of different shades to choose from.
You can get clear ones but I prefer the coloured ones as they give a nice hint of colour to my lips as well as keeping them hydrated and stopping them from drying out and cracking. They come packaged like a normal lip balm in a stick so are extremely easy to apply even when there is no mirror available to see what you are doing.
The colours are gorgeous as they are definitely noticeable but they aren’t too dark and more suitable for wearing during the day than a proper lip stick. They are also some of the longest lasting lip balms that I think that you can buy and last for ages without disappearing off your lips or transferring. They also aren’t sticky or tacky feeling when you are wearing them.
They also only cost £2.99 which I think is a bargain as they are really good quality and I would pay this just for a lip balm so getting a really good lip balm with a nice colour to it is a bonus.
The Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm is available for GBP 2.99.
The lip balm is described as follows. "No more boring balms! New Baby Lips gives intense lip care & 8 hr hydration. Conditioning care for lips that feel baby soft."
What especially has made me look closer here was probably the girlish look. No matter how old, a little girl infected but in every woman. Have raised me then the SPF 20 I indeed do not need more in the winter, but the yes but can not hurt, and the manufacturer promises that the pen make the lips not only smooth, but it is designed to protect dry out before. What is noticeable in the application, first the fact that the texture of the pen is very soft. I had not previously so used to this intensity. It is therefore sufficient, when applying only a little and easy. Over-pressing and too long smearing makes the lips look too greasy and the feeling on the lips to me personally simply too greasy. If you have the hang of it but, no longer happens. In addition, the pin on duration is very economical because it takes through the soft texture only little of it. Well I also like the smell. The similar girlish as the appearance of the blue pin with pink font. The pen smells slightly vanilla - creamy, maybe a bit buttery. In any case, slightly sweet and warm. I find very appropriate for the cold winter. For the summer, however, I would probably prefer a scent that smells of fresh fruit. When it comes to maintenance of the pen could convince me then completely. When I used it the first few times, my lips were not only harsh but also slightly torn and have peeled in places. On wearing a colored lipstick was therefore out of the question. Now, the balm of Maybelline managed quick remedy. Once applied overnight, I could instantly see and feel a difference the next morning. The lips was significantly less rough, almost really supple and soft. In addition to that they no longer be peeled. That naturally each pin can. More exciting I was so, whether he would protect my lips really drying before reuse. And he does - without that one would have to use it constantly. I use during the day again mainly lipstick and smear my lips almost exclusively at night with a balm Since then my lips no longer dry and tear no longer one, no matter how cold it is.
I love wearing red lipstick on a night out when I am all dressed up but since nights out are few and far between these days I don’t wear lipstick very often but I do like to have something on my lips but just something a bit more subtle.
I love lipbalms as my lips can become dry and flaky so I am always wearing them and I really like something that will give me a hint of colour whilst also protecting my lips.
Maybelline baby lip balms are great because they keep my lips moisturised whilst also giving them a hint of colour. I love the fact that the lip balms also contain an spf 20 because I think that a lot of people me included are good at protecting the rest of our face from the sun but tend to neglect our lips.
I love the cherry me lip balm as this is the nicest colour for my lips. It is a subtle colour but definitely noticeable on my lips. You can tell there is colour there but it isn’t too obvious and I never feel like I am overly made up whilst wearing it.
It keeps my lips feeling as moisturised as any other lip balm and is quite long lasting too. It can last a good few hours before needing topped up and my lips always feel well hydrated when wearing this. It also feels nice and not sticky on my lips.
The lip balm costs £2.99 and you can’t miss it in the shop thanks to the brightly coloured packaging which is fun and young and just makes it even more desirable to buy and wear in my opinion.
I use lip balm all year round and have always got at least three on the go which I keep in various handbags so I have always got one to hand. I bought this lip balm from Superdrug when it was on offer for £1.50. The lip balm is in a clear plastic tube with a blue base and pink writing down the tube which says Baby Lips.
To use you take the lid off and twist the bottom until the amount of balm you want is shown. I find it is best not to have too much of the actual balm sticking out as I have broken balms off in the past if too much is twisted up as they sometimes get a bit soft if it is warm weather.
I would describe the smell of the balm as sweet and fruity and you can definitely smell the strawberries, and it also tastes good on your lips. The actual balm itself is pale pink and leaves a slight shine to your lips but not enough to really notice.
To apply I rub it over my lips once which I find is sufficient and my lips feel lightly coated and protected straight away. I probably use balms more in the summer as my lips tend to get really dry in the sun both on holiday and at home, but also use them frequently in the winter when my lips get dry from the winds and cold weather.
I have used this particular balm regularly but it has hardly gone down so think it will last me for a long time. My lips instantly feel soft and hydrated so I would buy this one again and will look out for it to be on offer again.
I often have dry lips so have always loved lip balms. I used to just use Vaseline tubs as I had always heard how great they were and how moisturising they are for your lips. I used this until I went in to my local make up shop and saw Baby Lips lip balm. I was first interested because of the bright colours of the packaging and products. I had also seen a lot of glowing reviews online and had been recommended this by my friend. I bought this in a couple of shades to try out.
After trying these I have fallen in love with them! I own every colour in the range as they're all very different and vibrant colours. My favourite is the bright pink because the colour consistency for a lip balm is amazing. Not only is the lip balm moisturising, it wasn't sticky and had great pigment.
These lip balms are really soothing on dry lips. I often wear these as lipstick as the colors are really nice. The only thing which I dislike about these lip balms is that they don't stay on for very long. I find myself having to reapply this lip balm very often to maintain the colour and moisture.
I would rate this a 5/5 though because I haven't found a lip balm which I like as much as this one so far. I love the idea that it is a lip balm that changes your lip colour like lipstick. This feels really light on your lips.
Positive reviews of Maybelline's BabyLips lip balm persuaded me to take advantage of a special offer price of 1.25 in B&M, down from 299GBP. The balm is supposed to give you baby soft lips that feel moisturised for up to 8 hours. It has an SPF20 and some are tinted. If like me you get them from a discount store then the selection is sometimes different than if you buy somewhere like Superdrug. That's because B&M for example had imported ones normally only sold in the Far East. The colour that I chose - Smoothing Cherry - is NOT the same as the Cherry Me U.K balm which is tinted whereas mine is colourless.
My balm has a strong scent but it can't be called cherry. It reminds me of kiwis and raspberries! I don't know if the Baby lips are also suppose to have a flavour, but this one certainly doesn't.
I find the balm glides on smoothly without feeling too thick/heavy. It doesn't have the sort of greasy feel that some balms do. I find one pass over my lips makes them feel well coated. All balms feel soft to some degree but this one feels slightly more so than average to me.
I've already mentioned that the particular Baby Lip I have is one of the colourless ones. Therefore it only adds a nice glossy sheen but the finish reminds me of using a nude gloss that is not one of the more "wet" looking kind. I'm happy to wear this alone despite the lack of tint, which is rare for me. As for the smoothing part, I don't think the Baby Lips does much for me. My lips look a little smoother but no more than when I use something simple like a little slick of Vaseline but obviously the shine produced is more subtle and less sticky. My lips were going through quite a dry spell when I first started my tube of this and they did feel better immediately after application. But I definitely disagree that they still felt moisturised for any stretch of time approaching 8 hours. I felt I needed to re-apply this every 3-4 hours at least (and always after eating and drinking) to maintain that moisturised feel. After I had used the balm for about 4 days in a row, I did think my lips felt softer so the results may build up if you are willing to use it day in and out. For me though, this is generally something I would use to maintain my lips in good condition rather than try and treat them once they had already got a bit dry, as I have got faster results then when using other products.
I don't feel this is really an intensive product, but I would recommend it to others for a lightly moisturising balm in the short term.
I am an avid collector of Baby Lips and seem to have amassed a huge amount of these lovely lip balms over the last few months. The online love for Baby Lips is overwhelming with most people opting for this as their number one lip balm.
My first baby lips
I bought my first one from Boots, curious as to what was so special about them. It was a hybrid between a lipstick yet had the moisturising properties of a lip balm, I even remember I paid £3.99 for it. I was keen to try more.
I bought a few more different packaged ones from the pound shop that were more like a lip balm and I loved these so much. I have half a dozen of this kind in various coat pockets and bags.
The tube ones with a clear lid are around £3 - £4 at Boots or Superdrug or the supermarket but look out for the imports in the pound shop as these have less colour but smell wonderful and are mega moisturising on the lips.
You never seem to have enough lip balms in life, there's never one there when you need it! A good excuse to buy another though. I rank baby lips as my number one lip balm and prefer it over the vaseline tins as they sink in to the lips better and protect from dryness and stop me picking at them. The graffiti style packaging is bright and attractive and makes me want to buy more.
I started wearing lip balm in my teens and have used it ever since, becoming something of an addict. I recently saw this Maybelline Baby Lips on sale and decided to try it as it was something new. I confess when I first saw the packaging design I thought this was a product aimed at children. I was also a bit concerned about carrying a product around with the phrase ‘Baby Lips’ scrawled over it when I’m in my thirties. However, I bought the balm anyway.
The product comes as a stick lip balm in a plastic lipstick type tube with a twisting base which pushes the lip balm up out of the inner case. The plastic case is emblazoned with the product name and the gaudy colour and childish font style it does make it look like it is aimed at younger consumers. The case has a secure top which clicks back into place and which slips open easily too. The product I have is actually part of a range of tinted lip balms available in 6 different varieties. I have the style ‘Hydrate’ which comes in a bright blue plastic case and is actually a neutral, clear balm so it‘s natural looking and provides gloss and moisture rather than colour. The balm looks like a glue stick but does not award a cloudy effect once on the lips. The balm is super easy to apply since it seems to melt on impact with the lips. It gives a thin but lasting coverage. The product stays put but feels light. It has a mild, pleasant fragrance that reminds me of cherry or melon. It also provides SPF protection.
The brand claim this product keeps lips moisturised for 8 hours and state that testers of the product agreed the condition of their lips improved with regular use. I would agree that the product is long lasting and improves lip condition, making the skin less flaky and dry. I also like the way the balm looks - it's natural looking and doesn't look too wet or thick.
I am really happy with my purchase and would recommend this to any female who uses lip balms regularly. It's price of GBP2.99 is really good value and priced competitively. I would definitely buy this again.
Review also on Ciao!
The answer to a more fashionable Vaseline!!!
Now I''m not a lipstick person I must admit and I''m also not a big fan for lipgloss as it doesn''t work for every occasion a girl comes across. So I have been struggling for the longest time to find a product for my lips that will give me soft, smooth lips and a little big of color (only Cherry Me, Peach Kiss and Pink Punch provide a bit of color)that is closet to my lip-color and I had given up and thought I was condemned to Vaseline for the rest of my life. Then I read some article online about a new lip balm from Maybelline that, according to what I read, would solve all problems and boy am I glad I decided to take the chance and buy this Lip balm. This lip balm is perfect for the following reasons:
-it leaves your lips silky smooth and soft
-it has SPF20
-it doesn''t get sticky
-it gives me the perfect pigment (not too little and not too much, its just right---it lasts a long time
-I can choose from 6 different, yet equally fabulous choices
The Maybelline Lip Balm works just as great in winter as it does in summer; it provides all year round moisture and SPF protection. The lip balm is available in 6 varieties - Hydrate, Peach Kiss, Pink Punch, Cherry Me, Mint Fresh and Intense Care. My personal favorite is Peach Kiss and Cherry Me
So if you are looking for a lip balm that is very moisturizing and not sticky, then this is a must for every woman''s makeup bag
There was quite a lot of promotion for Baby Lips when it was released. It''s a balm (in a stick format)and there actually seems to be a slight variation on the original packaging. Bought from Boots and the like, this has a clear lid. Bought from discounter stores like B&M (or others on eBay) and you get the one with the small opaque lid. Either way, the lid pulls off to reveal the balm, and you can twist from the bottom to move it up. Simples. It''s quite a neat stick that''s small enough to carry around quite easily in a pocket or bag.
Maybelline claim that this balm has an ?exclusive formula'' that moisturises lips for 8 hours, which I think is quite a big claim to make! As a Vaseline addict I wasn''t sure how I''d get on with this; I''m so used to applying some Aloe Vera or Rosy Lips every 30 minutes to get the moisturised feel that the thought of applying a bit of stick balm every 8 hours seemed impossible. I didn''t expect the feeling of moisturisation to last for that long, but even just a couple of hours would be fantastic. The product also claims to renew lips in 1 week. It does this with an ?exclusive lip renew formula'' of course! It''s also got SPF20.
Scents/tints within the range are easy to distinguish thanks to the colourful packaging, and most will give a slight tint and scent. For instance, Pink Punch gives the light pink tint I mentioned with a slightly fruity smell, and Cherry Me gives a slight red tint with, obviously, a cherry scent.
To use, they suggest you start in the centre of your upper lip, then work to the edges. After this, glide across the bottom lip. Nice and quick and simple. Bear in mind that you may need to put a little thought in to where it''s going because it''s not a completely clear balm; Baby Lips comes in 6 varieties so they are coloured.
I''ve got a pinky one and this leaves just a slight pink tint to my lips. It''s not particularly shiny or noticeable but it does make my lips look nourished and healthy. I find it glides on to lips reasonably well without dragging too much and, to my shock, actually does make them feel soft and renewed. With a lot of will-power I''ve tried to move away from the Vaseline, which I find is a different feeling of moisturisation altogether, and just use this on some days. Whilst it hasn''t been the case of one application every 8 hours, it does seem to last quite a while, even when I''m out and about, drinking, eating etc. I probably apply this every couple of hours, which I think is pretty good and I don''t use much per application either, so I''d imagine it will last me a fair while
--- Introduction ---
I was excited to try Babylips because I had heard many good things about the brand from my friends in the USA. When I saw it on sale at Superdrug I was very excited to purchase some. I brought the flavour pink punch.
--- The product ---
This lip balm comes in a plastic tube, very similar to most lipsticks or balms. The lid is see through so you can see the lip balm through it. It has Babylips written on the front in a graffiti style font. The bottom part of the tube is brightly coloured and different for each flavour (mine is bright pink). This lip balm isn't particularly exciting design wise but it looks modern and I think it is quite appealing.
The actual lip balm comes in a variety of colours and flavours. There are 6 different shades of this product, ranging from clear, to bright pink, to purple. These are all different flavours.
This product to me is a cross between a lip balm and a lipstick. I brought it because I wanted a moisturising lip product, but I actually prefer it as a lip colour. Pink Punch is a really bright bubblegum pink which applies to your lips quite sheer, but once you have put on a few coats it is a solid colour. I really like the colour and I wear it a lot when I am going out.
The moisturising effects of this product I found to be a little bit disappointing. The product applies to your lips in a light coat and it does feel soft when applied. However, it soaks into my lips so quickly that they feel dry again after only half an hour. Even once the product has soaked in, my lips feel soft, but they don't feel very moisturised and I find I still have to use a lip balm on them. This product is very thin, unlike most lip balms which are quite thick and I think this is why it hasn't moistuised my lips as well as other products.
When you buy a lip product, you want to make sure that it tastes good seeing as some of it is bound to end up in your mouth! This product comes in different flavours and I have only tried the Pink Punch, but it is a yummy fruity flavour that I really like, which is a bonus!
--- Overall ---
Overall, I like this product as a lip colour, but I'm unconvinced by its ability to moisturise my lips. I use it regularly, but I wouldn't recommend buying it unless you see a colour that you love. Otherwise, stick to a traditional lip balm!
I was shocked at how much the balm soothed lips adding moisture not jut temporarily, but long-lasting smoothness. I love the range of Baby Lips as you can purchase coloured or non-coloured and from a range of different scents. I would however, say that in terms of getting into the cracks of lips and really healing any imperfections, that I would probably choose Vaseline as it has more moisture.
I first bought this product for my mother who is obsessed with lip balms and never has dry or chapped lips. She loved the product and now calls it 'designer lip balm' as she thinks it is the best on the market. Many of my friends and family use Baby Lips although some of them have told me that they think the range is a little overpriced at just under £5 per stick.
Overall, I would say that the Baby Lips range is useful for everyday wear, however, if the lips are chapped or sore, Vaseline tends to heal faster.
I first purchased this lip balm as a gift for a friend, and after she told me how good it was I decided to get some myself. The Hydrate (01) is brilliant for soothing chapped/sore lips and also makes them really nice and soft. The other two sticks that I have are coloured ones. The 'Pink Punch' (005) is a lovely colour and leaves your lips feeling great, although the colour does come off quite quickly/easily. My personal favourite is 'Peach Kiss' (006) which leaves your lips a lovely nude colour with a tiny bit of sparkle. It smells amazing and also hydrates your lips at the same time. I would definitely recommend these lip balms - they are more exciting than the normal chap stick and are great to keep in your pocket/bag and I find it really useful how they add a touch of colour to your lips too. At a price of £2.99 they're definitely worth grabbing a couple.
I have the baby lips by maybelline in the pink and purple colors. they are super moisturizing, without unwanted shimmer or excessive shine. they feel smooth and the tint of colors are nice. The pink offers buildable vibrant color, which is an awesome translucent, bright, bubblegum-pink. i found the purple color to be more subdued and more suitable for everyday wear. These are good balms and I'd be interested in trying the other less pigmented colours. This is not only a range of good looking colour lip balms, but also it hydrates your lips as well. I like taking it round with me every day and putting it on my lips when needed. The range of colours are very pretty and it makes you look as though you're wearing lip-stick. I would recommend this product to anyone.
A great affordable price, good that some provide SPF but they are the clear ones.
A great buy.
