Maybelline Baby Lips - Just Another Lip Balm?


Unfortunately, yes. But to be honest, I didn't expect much from this product. It was more of an impulse buy at CVS, and I just convinced myself that I needed to try it. Well I did, and i'm sorry to report that it's nothing exciting - really.

I got the clear (in Peppermint), because I figured I could always use it for the winter when my lips get chapped. They do come in different shades - pink, purple and so forth. My issue with the shades, is that the lip balm stick is very thick, therefore making the application of color rather difficult. It was only $4 so I guess there was really no harm done, but if you're looking for the latest and greatest lip balm I don't think this one is it. Further, Baby Lips has an "8 hour hydration" claim which I can assure you it does not last that long.

Sorry for the Negative Nancy review guys, i'll try to review something I really like next to make up for it! =)

  6. I've been reading/hearing so much about these lately but have been hesitant to purchase. Not every product can be great for every person, so reading honest reviews like this is really helpful! I'll pass on this, Burt's Bees does good by me for now.
