Well, yes, I had just bought two Maybelline color lip balms the other day, and this one was the one I was really looking for. I just wanted the other as window dressing, to confuse you guys that I wanted that. Secretly, this was the one I was truly after. But I was in denial, for, after a long aversion towards corals, all of a sudden how come I have suddenly started to love them?
I don’t know. But you should move on with the post. Because I am rambling.
The best thing about these Baby lips is the fact that I can use them overnight, and still feel a bit of it in the morning. Now that IS the part I really really love, they hydrate my lips like anything. Truth be told, a few days ago, I did buy another balm from Nivea and it dried my lips out, so I decided to switch to the Baby Lips, and boy, it worked. Within three days my lips actually feel better.
All those girls who are after colored lip balms, well, this one will leave your lips with the lightest orange-coral flush, no more. I generally do not swipe this more than twice on my lips, and it stays put there for three to four hours. That is great, but what I also like is that it does not have much smell, very mild to say the most, and no taste. I have an issue with tasty yummy lip glosses. I have found that they sometimes make me want to lick my lips.
As a result, my lips get dry and dirty in color. No way.
Anyway, in the ingredient list I saw, I did not find any paraben, though I did find SPF 16 and instructions that I should reapply against harsher weather. What I really like is the fact that the gloss is very hydrating and the color is very mild. It is great for virtually all kinds of skin, and I love the mild orange-y flush it leaves my skin with.
Maybelline Baby Lips Color Lip Balm Coral Kiss Swatches:-
The balm is really travel-friendly, and lasts me through a meal too. Also, it keeps my lips moisturized for hours, which is an achievement, since my lips crave hydration like Rakhi Sawant craves attention. The texture is super-moisturizing and smooth, and I love the feel of it. It is not glossy, but at the same time, not too drying either. This actually stays on my lips for a good period of time, giving it all the attention it needs. Over time, my lips have become smoother.
Here is a weird picture of my lip, minus everything but the gloss.
