I’m addicted to another lip balm, gals. This time it’s Maybelline’s Baby Lips Lip Balm. They are officially available in October but if you’re lucky, your local drug store will have it in stock now. I’m loving these so much that I started with one and went back for three more… I might have to go back for the other two. Not that I need more, that’s just how much of a lip balm addict I am. Am I alone here?
The scoop on these lips balms is that they are super moisturizing and come in clear and tinted shades. I’m telling you, they give Fresh’s tinted Sugar lip balms a run for their money. Not quite the same thick texture but every bit as tinted and moisturizing. In fact, the Cherry Me shade would be a good dupe for the new Fresh Passion if you don’t mind a slightly bluer red… they smell really good too, like candy.
This is what Maybelline says about the formula:
The formula’s secret is the exclusive Botanical Cell Renewal Concentrate with Centella Asiatica. This natural botanical plant native to India, Sri Lanka, Austrailia and other parts of Asia, improves lip coloration and reduces the appearance of fine lines for younger looking, baby-smooth lips. Vitamins E and C, plus natural shea butter, aloe and camphor provide lasting moisturization. SPF 20 protects against damage from harmful UVA/UVB rays.
You got to love a lip balm with SPF 20, so many of them don’t have SPF. If you’re familiar with Nivea or Labello lip balms, these really remind me of those, which is a good thing because I have several of those as well. For $3.99, you can pick one of 6: Quenched (clear), Peppermint (clear), Cherry Me, Pink Punch, Grape Vine and Peach Kiss. If you can’t find them in a store near you, fear not, Target will come to the rescue.
Have you tried these yet? Let me know in the comments.
