Im so impressed with Maybelline 'Baby Lips' Lip Balm, that I had to write a little review for you all! These tubes of colour have hit the UK and boy do you all need to own one (or maybe two..)! They are just £2.99 each and are currently 3 for 2 online at Boots. They are also sold online at Superdrug and are currently due to hit all UK Boots and Superdrug stores in the next week or so. I had read and heard so much about these lip balms and thought to myself, "what is all the hype about, they just sound like glorified lip balms?" and after receiving these three in the post and putting them to the test, I now see what the hype is about and I just LOVE them!

Firstly I would just like to point out (if you hadn't already noticed!) just how fun and colourful the packaging is! These little tubes are packed with a special formula to help keep your lips nourished for 8 full hours and renew your lips within a week and I can stand by that and say that already after 4 days I have seen and felt a noticeable difference in my lips - almost like a babies (excuse the pun, I couldn't help myself!). My lips most defiantly feel and appear a lot smoother and has quite similar effects I get from my much loved Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream which is nearly 8 times the price!

On top of being nourishing they are also slightly tinted, with a subtle sent - which I love. I actually find them similar to Revlon Lip Butters in the sense that they are nourishing and add a sheer colour to your lips. The colour is sheer but buildable, it took about three swipes to get the pigmentation seen above. But they are great if you want to add subtle colour to your lips and they are perfect for every day wear. As I mentioned before there are 6 in total: 'Pink Punch' smells very sweet and fruity and is a lovely bright pink. 'Peach Kiss' is a nude with slight shimmer - a my lips but better colour, which if not obvious smells like peaches! 'Cherry Me', which is so far my favourite of the three, is a reddish pink and smells like cherries and I LOVE it! There is then 3 other Baby Lips which are not tinted but still are slightly scented: 'Intense Care', almond scent. 'Mint Fresh', peppermint and 'Hydrate' which smells like a mix of lemons/pineapples and vanilla - I couldn't quite decide!
The formula also contains SPF20 and at just £2.99 you cant go wrong! I will most defiantly say this has to be a new favourite of mine - I never thought I would be so satisfied with a lip balm, I hope that Maybelline bring out a few more! What more could you ask for?! Wave goodbye to your boring chap stick and say hello to Baby Lips!
