After hearing so much about this new product over the past few months I thought I best pick one up to see what all the fuss is about. I chose 'pink punch' which has a slight pink tint on the lips but this one doesn't contain SPF which is a shame, theres three shades with the SPF20 and three without so if you're looking for some protection for your lips then check the packaging before buying as I thought the SPF was in all of them. That means I now have to go and get another one that contains SPF so I can protect my lips (any excuse!) these are available in Boots and Superdrug for £2.99 and Boots are currently doing a 3 for 2 offer on Maybelline.
The packaging is very cheap looking but simple, I love the bright pink colour with the yellow text. It's certainly doesn't have that luxurious look about it but for the price you can't exactly complain about how it's presented.
In the tube it looks like a very opaque neon pink (think MACs Candy Yum Yum lipstick) but once applied to the lips it's really sheer, leaving a slight pink tint to the lips. If you're not a fan of lipsticks or feel too scared to apply colour then this is the product for you as it's not too in your face and gives you just a hint of pink.
It claims to moisturise the lips for up to 8 hours and visibly renews lips within 4 weeks of usage. I've used this a couple of times and love the texture of it, it makes my lips feel silky smooth and the slight tint of colour is great for those barely there makeup days to inject some colour into the face. I wouldn't say it stays on for the full 8 hours but it lasts longer than some other lip balms i've tried in the past, I'll have to report back to you whether it renews my lips or not after 4 weeks although i'm not getting my hopes up!
This is a very affordable product and is great for any age, i'm sure the clear coloured ones would be great for the boys too. I double checked about the SPF and realised that in the USA all of them have the SPF20 but only three of them do in the UK so i'm not entirely sure why that is? The Boots website tells you which ones contain the SPF and which ones don't which is helpful.
Have you tried Baby Lips? which one is your fave?
