Maybelliene Baby Lips Color Balm Review – Cherry Kiss

Maybelliene Baby Lips Color – Cherry Kiss £2.60

Lip balms have always been a must in my make up regime, I can never have enough of them. Whether its worn on its own or underneath lipsticks as a base, there is always one not too far from my reach and I absolutely love trying out new ones. 

Stepping in to Sasa one day, I noticed a rather quirky Maybelliene counter in my sight and hurried over for a little mooch. Some of their range is quite similar to the UK, but there are an odd few products that I have never seen before like the Pure Mineral BB cream and the Clear Smooth All In One powder. However, the one product that caught my eye especially, was the Baby Lips Color balms. Available in various tints and after swatching, I opted for the reddish shade as I already have some pink toned lip balms and thought I’d try something different. After trialling it, I must say, I wasn’t particularly impressed to be honest. Don’t get me wrong, my lips felt super moisturised and looked incredibly shiny, but the red tint was pretty much non-existent. Compared to a few other lip balms that I’ve tried before, this doesn’t stand out and isn’t anything out of the ordinary. So, unfortunately, I won’t be purchasing any more of these.

Have you tried any Maybelliene products from different countries before? Would you recommend anything else?

    I picked this up in India (as well as the Maybelline BB cream). It gave my lips the most subtle red tint and I was pleased as I wasn't expecting it to show up at all tbh 🙂

      It doesn't, but felt super moisturising on my lips. xx

    I have the one from America in different packaging and it has much more colour. This one doesn't look great x

      It was good for making my lips soft, just not that impressed with the "tint" xx

      Yeah, just this one didn't really give me a tint at all. xx
