Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush Lip Balm review

I didn’t really go looking for it but realised after an impulse buy that nothing makes a woman feel more sensuous and more in command than a radiant smile on soft, pink lips. I am talking about the Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush lip balm.

The Maybelline ‘Baby Lips’ lip balm looked ideal for a teenager. I was unsettled that I actually wanted to try it on – let alone buy it; the ‘Berry Crush’ flavor no less!

What I love:

  • Packaging: fresh, fun and completely girly
  • Retractable tube in sturdy plastic. Extremely travel-friendly
  • Lid shuts firmly: no fear of accidental opening or crushing the lip balm
  • Buttery texture. Easy application. Glides smoothly
  • Finish is glossy with a beautiful pop of colour
  • Tube looks bright and vivid – gives just the right hint of red on application
  • Staying power: claims 6-hour continuous moisturisation and it’s true

What I don’t love:

  • The tint fades away too quickly
  • Pigmentation is quite sheer

Maybelline Baby Lips Berry Crush Lip Balm review

Maybelline Baby Lips does a good job of moisturising the lips making them softer and healthier in appearance. Maybelline’s certainly got its ‘red’ bang on for the Indian complexion – will most definitely suit all skin types and tones. Although the colour wears off evenly and rather quickly – the glossy finish and smooth application have had me reaching for it every single day (and yes sometimes for repeated application).

The non-fuss, simple twist of the tube definitely makes re-application quite hassel-free. Baby Lips is very light and leaves no coated, waxy feeling at all. I’ve even used it overnight – only to get “baby soft” lips. I like the fact that it gives my lips a healthy, natural pop of colour. I highly recommend for all gals looking for softer lips this winter and possibly all year round.

Although I thought Rs. 165 was a bit too much for an impulse buy, I am glad to report I’ve got my money’s worth!
