Maybelline Baby Lips hit the UK! ♥ Review

Hey Everyone ♥
I was planning to write and publish this yesterday but time ran away with me and I didn't manage to do it so today it is then! This is something I am really excited to share with you as I've been wanting these to finally come to the UK for absolutely ages and they finally have, Maybelline Babylips lip balms are finally in the UK! I have a slight lip balm problem (read: obsession) and I am infactuated with all things American especially beauty so this is amazing for me, I actually took drastic measures last year after wanting one of these for so long and ordered it off the American amazon and waited weeks for it to come, crazy I know and that's why the 'Pink Punch' lip balm looks slightly worn as that was the one I got!
L-R: Cherry Me, Peach Kiss, Hydrate, Pink Punch

L-R: Cherry Me, Peach Kiss, Hydrate, Pink Punch


There are six different flavours/scents which are: Intense Care (yellow), Mint Fresh (green), Hydrate (blue), Cherry Me (orange), Pink Punch (pink) and Peach Kiss (lilac) of which I have the last four. The packaging of these is really bright and eye-catching and come in a coloured tube with a clear lid with the writing in a different colour as you can see from the above pictures. As you can see from the hand swatch the tinted ones are not greatly pigmented, Pink Punch is the best for colour pay off in my opinion. They all smell really nice even if it is quite artificial! This wouldn't be the best balm for me if I had really chapped lips but it is a great everyday lip balm I can pick up and put on and leave me with soft lips.
Overall, I do like them. They're 'fun' and think these will probably appeal more to school/college people (maybe why I am so attracted to them?! haha) as they are colourful and look good. Also good if you are after a very slightly tinted balm which is cheap! I would re purchase these but probably only Hydrate or Pink Punch as they are my favourites (but seriously who am I kidding, I'm never gonna finish these with the amount of lips balms I have!)

  1. So excited these are in the UK! ^.^ Been wanting to try them for so long after all the hype in the States - it's a bit of a shame they aren't more pigmented but I guess they are only 'balms' ^.^
