It doesn't matter how many products that I buy or get sent, cute packaging will get me every time! Following on from their Baby Lips and Baby Skin, Maybelline have launched their Baby Lips Balm and Blush and I can't cope with the dinginess! Lookit!
There are four shades available and I'll give you one guess as to which one made me go "Ooh!" And fans of the EOS lip balms will enjoy the product being all dome shaped.
These guys have quite a slippy texture making them more of a lip product than a cheek product for me. I found that when I applied them over my base, they moved my foundation and left my cheeks feeling a bit wet for my liking. Add a bit of a breeze into the equation and I'd be swanning around the place looking like Chewbacca. I prefer cream blushes that set as powders for day to day wear, but in saying that, if I was away on holidays somewhere hot, I'd definitely use them as I tend not to wear foundations during the day when I'm sweating. I can be Spanish Chewbacca, be grand like!
But as lip balms, they give a lovely light wash of colour. I've really pigmented lips so the darker shade and the coral one shows up the most. They remind me of my fancy lip balms from back in the day before I went all grown up and boring with my tubes of the stuff. They're lightly scented and each of the four are nice and wearable, so if this sounds like it'd be up your street, then happy days!
They're available now, cost €7.49 and if you're looking for a tinted lip balm with packaging that'll make it a bit easier to fish out of the bottom of your bag, then check them out on Maybelline stands now. They totally need to make some matte ones because I'd be all over that for lips and cheeks!
