Maybelline Baby Lips needs no introduction! These have literally reinvented the whole concept of lip balms and everyone is just crazy about them. Be it the fun packaging, formulation or the varied colors, it is a huge hit among the girls! I myself am a huge fan of these babies and wanted to review my favorite shade from the Electro Pop range, that goes by the name Pink Shock. So if you wish to know my thoughts on this one, please keep on reading! Let’s begin…
What The Brand Claims: The next generation of lip balm is born, from Maybelline New York. Infused with Electric Color Pigments in our exclusive Lip Renew formula, for a sheer tint of color and shine. Formula with Shea Butter and Vitamin E gives lips a soft and natural finish and leaves a supple and smooth feeling.
Packaging: Maybelline always does a fantastic job with the packaging of Baby Lips and this one is no exception! It is just so fun, pretty and quirky! The lip balm comes in bullet form with a twist-up mechanism. The body is black in color while the cap has Baby Lips written over it in bright pink color. The tube is color coded at the top;which makes it easy to identify and the manufacturing date is mentioned at the base.
The only issue I have with the packaging is that the bullet does not retract back completely inside the tube. This can also be seen in the picture below. Otherwise, the packaging is gorgeous, eye-catching as well as travel friendly.
My Experience With The Product: Maybelline Baby Lips in the shade Pink Shock has a very smooth formula that just glides on effortlessly on the lips. As soon as you apply, it instantly provides loads of hydration and makes the lips super soft and moisturized. The best part about this product is that it is extremely comfortable and lightweight on the lips. There is absolutely no waxy or sticky feeling whatsoever. However, it does not do much to heal chapped lips. For a lip balm, this particular shade is highly pigmented. In fact, this one has the maximum color payoff in the entire Electro Pop range. It is a bright pink color with notable blue undertones. On the lips, it gives a beautiful pink hue with a glossy finish.
This is a great shade for everyday wear, especially for days when you do not feel like putting on a lipstick. However, the color does transfer and does not survive meals. After staying on for around 2-3 hours, it starts fading off and leaves a healthy flush of color behind. Now coming to the fragrance, it has a yummy fruity scent that I am crazy about! It is very refreshing and stays on for a brief period of time.
