Maybelline Baby Lips Review

Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms have intrigued me for a while. They product claims to be not only a lip balm but a "lip renewal" product. I picked this up using at $2 off coupon, which means I purchased this for under $1. I am willing to give any product a try at that price point.

The flavor/color I picked up was Cherry Me. It certainly has a cherry smell, but reminds me pretty strongly of  basic cherry Chapstick. This does have a bit of color payoff, but nothing that I could get to show up on camera, so you will just have to take my word for it. The formula on this is very soft and does not have a waxy feel. The product really sinks into the lips and helps the lips to plump up. It also has a pretty strong SPF (SPF 20) which I really like, but you can taste the SPF on your lips.

While this does make my lips feel soft, it also plumps them up, which makes me really really thirsty. I don't know why, but I can't stop licking my lips and not in a good way. This product just makes me feel really parched. It is the strangest thing. Ironically, while this leaves my lips soft and moisturized they don't feel saturated with moisture like they do when I use other lip balms.

The honest truth is that I'm not sure I like this product. I really want to like it, but between the taste of the sunscreen and the fact that it makes my lips feel rather strange, I just don't think I will buy it again. It could also be something in the cherry flavor that is making me thirsty. I do like the way it leaves my lips feeling, but it certainly doesn't last the 8 hours indicated in the product description. I'm glad I gave this a try, but I really don't feel like it is much different from basic Chapstick. Have you tried this product? 

Stay beautiful!
