Todays review is on the Maybelline Babylips in Pink Punch. I had heard so much about these and was never quite sure on what the hype was all about. I was in my local Superdrug when I saw them, I had a think and thought why not lets jump on the bandwagon.
Maybelline states these offer 8hour moisture and protection, a revolutionary balm with SPF 20.
The packaging isn't amazing, its bright and eye catching, but not sure what I think of the baby lips writing on the lip balm itself. It does have a handy retractable tube, and the balm goes right in the tube unlike others, so no broken lip balm!
They have various shades and scents available, and I chose Pink Punch, a pink punch fruity scent which is quite sweet but not sickly.
I applied this on my way to work and loved the feeling, it was moisturising and made my lips soft after applying. Maybelline states it offers 8 hour protection, not sure I agree as I felt I needed to reapply after a couple of hours.
Pink Punch is a cold toned pink with a shimmer, but if you want fantastic pigmentation and bold colours then don't pick these as they aren't created to give that affect, they only give a "hint of colour". The colour didn't stay on long and I found the balm gathered on my lip, it didn't sink in particularly well to ensure my lips were intensely moisture.
I would like to purchase another shade, as I do think are handy and for £2.99 you cant go terribly wrong. I don't think it looks up to the hype but sometimes when products are hyped so much they then aren't seen as great as the expectation is on such a high level!
Have you tried these?
