Maybelline lip smooth tinted lip balm in Mandarin and Cherry

I asked the SA at the Maybelline counter to give me the most pigmented shade of the lot and she recommended cherry. Considering the serious trust issues I have, I proceeded to swatch each and every shade to make sure and guys, she was right. Cherry turned out be the most pigmented. It’s is lovely pink shade that goes on really warm. It’s like the lip balm version of my favorite lipgloss– lotus herbals winter berry crush. The best part is that the color actually shows up, even on my pigmented lips, so plus points for that. The other shade I picked up was mandarin and my only objective behind getting his was that I wanted a shade that could add some warmth to my lips. Mandarin is orangish-pink i.e. more orange than pink.

The texture is non-greasy and really moisuturizing and it works well on my chapped lips even in the winters. The plastic-y smell might be a turn-off for some.

  •  Really moisturizing.
  •  Not greasy.
  • Has SPF.
  • Priced decently.
