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.
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.
I seem to remember when Maybelline Baby Lips was introduced in the UK, there was a lot of hype about it. I think it was out in America first and there had been quite a lot of positive reviews in the online beauty community. It took me a while to jump on the bandwagon, but I finally purchased myself a tube in the colour pink punch.
There are actually six colours available and they are not the usual colours you would expect! There is a yellow, pink, blue, lilac, orange and green. I thought by buying the pink version, I was playing it safe...
The lip balm comes backed onto card and the tube itself is bright pink (or bright whatever other colour you have bought!). The text on the tube is a graffiti style and I think that makes it look quite a young, funky product rather than a sophisticated product. It even says on the tube 'for adult use only', although perhaps that's in case anyone sees the name and thinks this is suitable for a baby!!
I found that the balm had quite a sweet, sugary smell to it, and glided onto my lips really easily. The packaging suggests that this will give a 'hint of colour'. Now let's just say my idea of a hint is obviously not theirs! I found the colour to be very bright. The product was very pigmented and the bright colour looked incredibly pink. I'd say the colour also looked quite thick and bold on my lips and to be honest I found this disappointing. I didn't really feel that this was a wearable colour on me, so I have only ever used this product around the house - it's not a balm I'd put in my handbag to use on the go.
The product claims to give 8 hours of moisturisation. Whilst it does have a very creamy formula and does feel moisturising on the lips, I think 8 hours is an exaggeration. For a start, if I eat or drink anything it will come off (leaving a noticeable pink mark on any cup or glass). Unless I'm asleep it's rare that I'll go 8 hours without eating or drinking at all, so I don't really believe the claims.
Another thing I will mention, is that if I have dry skin on my lips - which I often do, especially in cold weather - the pink colouring of the product really highlights that fact and looks awful.
These lip balms cost £2.99 from Boots and Superdrug.
Overall, I was quite disappointed in this product. Whilst it feels really creamy and moisturising (at least when first on, not after 8 hours as claimed!), the colour was just too much for me personally. I didn't expect it to look so bright and because of this I don't think I would buy it again.
Maybelline are great for providing cost effective make up with a great reputation & staying power. When these dropped on the shelves, they quickly disappeared ! Reviews popped up everywhere about the different smells, colours & feel of the product that when they were restocked, I bought some !!
I only have two from the range, I chose the two that I liked the smell & colour of. I have the Nude Peach & the Cherry Pink (although that one's a little less day wearable and more night time fun). I use a lot of lip care products. I have very dry lips, no matter the time of year & am always trying out the latest lip balm.
I think that these are great, they make me feel young and funky (now I sound really old! I'm only 25!) They are easily to apply, feel really moisturising and with a touch of colour, they add a little bit more to my make up look. I feel like now I can wear a simple eye with coloured lip balm to achieve a polished look. The problem with dry lips is that if you want to wear lip stick, during the day the colour begins to crack and you end up looking more like the walking dead than catwalk! But with these, you can repair your lips AND have colour.
I'm sucker for a new product and purchased this as soon as it was available. I can't say I was completely taken in by this product. The packaging struck my as slightly tacky and aimed at a younger teenage girl age group. I felt slightly embarrassed to be taking out of my pocket and applying at work. However the colour was great and long lasting, I purchased pink punch. The more applied the darker the result of colour so I have found myself using for day and night. I can't say that my lips have become any softer but it hasn't made them any worse! This lip balm is a reasonable price and one stick has lasted a good few months after daily use. I'm not sure if I will repurchase however I am glad I have tried this. And will continue to use until i run out. Handy to keep in my hand bag.
When the Babylips first came out, I was a bit skeptical of all of the hype that surrounded them and was convince it was just a fad- cute, bright packaging and not much else, and I was such a firm believer of this that I was determined not to give in and purchase any of them, however, when I was sent one in a beauty box, it seemed silly and a little obnoxious of me not to at least give it a try.
I received Minty Fresh- the green packaged one with the purple writing.
The first thing that struck me was obviously the taste. It tasted like After Eight dinner mints and I kind of liked that about it.
The second thing was the texture. It felt a little waxy and greasy and I wasn't sure that I liked that.
I decided to power on through and use it for a few days to give it a fair shot before dismissing it though and it did keep my lips hydrated and soft.
I can't say that it's my favourite lip balm out there and it's definitely tailored towards a slightly younger audience but it's nice enough just to through in your handbag and the flavours and bright packaging are a bit of fun.
I think that the tinted ones may be a little more of interest to me however, because I think the addition of colour may take it from being just an average, ok lip balm to something more like a lip butter (from Revlon) which I do love.
I have seen this product everywhere!!! Youtube , beauty blogs, magazines and of course from friends.
Colour: These lip balms now come in various different colours including just a plain sheer balm. At first I was not to sure about the tinted lip balms and still I must say they are not the best if your lips are extremely chapped as mine were - this is because the the colour (although not very strong) can get stuck and outline the chapped sections on your lips making the colour look uneven.
however after a few days of using the sheer coloured baby lips my lips were much less chapped and I was again able to use the tinted balms that seemed to give my lips a natural flush.
Personally I believe all these colours are really quite pleasant and also suit almost any complexion. As the colours are really suttle and natural they are most certainly suitable for work or school.
Taste: The taste is amazing,, all these balms seem to give some sort of fruity flavour that I can't get enough of.
Although they are a good balm I found myself reapplying them often as they seemed to go dry quite quickly.
Overall a good buy
Maybelline has done it again!
They've come out with a beauty masterpiece! Never have i experienced such an amazing and worthwhile product. I first brought this in September of 2013 and very since it has not left my lips i apply it at least 5-6 times in an hour because im that addicted? I mean seriously how better can this little baby get? Not to mention its super easy ability to produce a lip gloss effect as well as being handy to take around with. Honestly i don't see myself returning to anything else in the next few years this product has astounded me. Previously i had a lip operation a year ago and have been put off using any lip products in fear something may happen and doing so left my lips in a chapped horrible state. However encountering this product has enabled me to achieve full healthy looking lips, something that i have not previously achieved. I can't thank Maybelline enough.
Sometimes when I read lots of positive reviews about a product, I decide that I have to try it, even if it is something I really don't need. This was the case with the Baby Lips lipbalm from Maybelline. I really didn't need another lipbalm, but I was curious after all the positive reviews.
These balms come in six varieties:
I chose the Pink Punch shade, partly because the name made me think that this would be a fruity scent and taste. I also liked the colour of the balm in the tube, it has a baby pink sheen, without being too bright. I have noticed that most others have an SPF of 20, but there doesn't seem to be any SPF in the tinted balms.
Mine came in cardboard backed plastic packaging, although I have also seen these available loose in some stores. I feel that the packaging is slightly wasteful and that an outer plastic wrapper for hygiene reasons would suffice. The packaging on the balm is very eye-catching. The lid is clear, with 'Baby Lips' written on it in bright yellow letters. The base is a pink shade, similar to the colour of the balm. You can see the balm through the clear lid.
To use this, remove the lid and screw the base anti-clockwise until the balm appears. The Maybelline website has 'helpfully' included instructions on how to apply this balm - start in the centre of your upper lip, work from the centre to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip - just in case you had no idea on how to apply lipbalm.
As soon as you open the lid you can smell the slightly fruity scent of this balm. It smells really sweet and fruity, and I did really like the scent of this. There isn't much of a taste admittedly though. The balm goes on really smoothly, although I do think it felt slightly greasy on my lips, but this might just be me and being more used to 'dryer' balms. It does seem to feel slightly greasy on my lips as well, but I think this might be because it's more of a gloss effect than a balm. After I apply this, it leaves a pale pink sheen on my lips, which has a slight shimmer as well. I do like the effect of this balm, it looks quite natural.
This contains Shea butter to help moisturise your lips and to keep them hydrated, but I do doubt the manufacturers claim this gives eight hours hydration, as I find that after a couple of hours, my lips start to feel slightly dry again, and I have to reapply this balm.
I do like this lipbalm, it glides on easily, has a hint of colour and leaves my lips feeling moisturised. I wouldn't be in a hurry to buy this balm again, as there are better brands that are cheaper, but it's nice for when you want a slight colour as well as just a protective balm. If I found this on offer (as I am keen to try the mint one) I would buy it again, but otherwise I would stick to Carmex or Burt's Bees products.
I bought mine from Boots where it cost me £2.99, but they are available from most chemists and supermarkets for £2.50 - £2.99.

There is nothing wrong with Maybelline Baby Lips. Hydrate, the blue one, is currently living happily in my handbag, doing it's job of moisturising my lips whenever called upon. There's just nothing spectacularly right about them either.
It is essentially just a basic lip balm, no more (and perhaps even a little less) effective than my various Nivea, Carmex and Vitamin E balms which is a little disappointing considering the hype with which they launched.
Maybelline Baby Lips can be bought in Boots, Superdrug and most big supermarkets. They retail for £2.99 and come in 6 varieties, some sheer and some with a hint of colour. The packaging is wonderful. It's fairly robust (although mine has a small crack from where I stood on it) and the lid stays firmly on but it's the styling that sets it apart. It's bright, eye catching and fun, it feels more like make-up than maintenance. I enjoy using it more than other lip balms.
The results however are just not as good as the packaging. You get a fair amount of product, the bullet is full, but
you'll still use it up quite quickly because you have to reapply fairly frequently to keep your lips moisturised. It feels good initially but it doesn't last as long as its competitors. I'm also not too fond of the smell/taste which reminds me of the sickly false fruit scent of cheap sweets.
It's a fine lip balm but there are cheaper options that do the job better.
