Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm £2.99
3 for 2 in Boots at the moment. Go, go, on!

The moment I heard that these stateside lip balms were arriving on English soil, they were swiftly added to my beauty wishlist and coveted ever since. Two hopeful trips to Boots later and these cult beauties were in my basket and giving me the perfect reason to spend my amounting Boots points. Now I knew for the outset that these weren’t going to be life-changing lip balms but for £2.99 each you can get your mitts on three clear balms – hydrate, intense care and mint fresh and three tinted balms – peach kiss, pink punch and cherry me, all packed with shea butter, plumping centella, SPF20 and an addictive scent.

When I first read about these US lovelies I was most excited about the tinted trio, as I love a pop of colour to compliment my lip balm, and these do the job nicely. Peach Kiss is the ideal option if you like a subtle nude lip whereas Pink Punch and Cherry Me gives you a sweet, pink pout. These lip balms do moisturise and hydrate the lips nicely but I think the claim of “a full 8 hours” is a little grand and I found myself reapplying every few hours to keep my lips supple and soft. As I anticipated, these crazily-hyped little tubes of lip balm aren’t going to alter your life forever but they do moisturise and are incredibly playful and for £2.99 you can’t really expect much else!

Have you succumbed to the hype of Maybelline’s Baby Lips?

    These look surprisingly good and they look to have good colour pay off? I will inevitably buy one (or 3). Love how you photo them actaully on your lips too, Milly.

    There's so much about these going around atm, they look pretty cute I'll probably pick one up eventually


  12. 14th August 2013 / 11:08 pm

    I have been wanting pink punch for ages… too bad they aren't available in Aus yet!

  13. 15th August 2013 / 7:06 am

    My friend sent me a couple from America. They're so cute but I wanted them to have a little more colour in them like lip butters. And as a lipbalm I think eos are much better.

    Great post, look cute on your lips

    I haven't found them yet! I want all 6 but I guess that's the beauty blogger in me! I like the bright packaging aswell!

  15. 15th August 2013 / 8:04 am

    Cherry me is the only one that looks great. I will pick it up next month in London :). Thanks for the great review and swatches, they helped me a lot.

    I haven't tried these yet as it's very hard for me to give up my beloved burts bees and that now comes in tints as well.

  21. 15th August 2013 / 3:59 pm

    Ah I signed up with boots online to receive the e-mail when they launched in the UK. Despite this i still havent got my hands on these yet! Can't wait to get these sooner rather than later whilst the offer is still on!

    Great post, as ever ๐Ÿ™‚ I want to buy the whole set! Can I just ask, which programme do you use to add text and shapes to your photos?




  23. 15th August 2013 / 6:49 pm

    Ahhhh they look so cute, want them!

  24. 15th August 2013 / 9:52 pm

    They have only been out 1 week where I live, and I already have 3 of them!

  25. 15th August 2013 / 10:51 pm

    I so want to jump on this bandwagon but I know it's not a lip product I'll use frequently enough! How long I'll resist though is another thing.

    I'm in Canada so I've had these for a while now. They aren't too special but they really do make my lips feel soft. Though like you said, I think the 8 hours is a bit of an exaggeration and I find myself reapplying every few hours or so. I have the Mint Fresh, Peach Kiss and Pink Punch and I really enjoy their scents and the colour payoff from the two tinted balms!

    Great post!
