♡ The UK Arrival - Maybelline Baby Lips

August 12, 2013

After a long wait, Maybelline Babylips have finally make an appearance in the UK. Housed within colourful packaging and retailing for only £2.99 each, these new balms are a fun and youthful addition. For such an inexpensive product the ingredients are pretty substantial as all contain vitamin E, honey, shea butter and aloe. As a result these balms are smooth to apply and work wonders as a quick fix for dry lips. However, as they all also contain petroleum, once the lip balm wears off your lips, so do the effects. Like with most petroleum based products, these lean more towards the type of balm that can dry your lips out further, though unless you have badly chapped lips, I haven't found this too much of a problem.

Cherry Me | Hydrate | Peach kiss
Currently, there are 6 Baby Lips available in the UK, 3 clear, (all containing SPF), and 3 tinted. The tint is however very sheer, I've found Peach Kiss to be hardly detectable on my lips, though Cherry Me does give a nice wash of colour that perks up my lips just enough, whilst still looking natural. They also all smell quite nice which makes them just that little bit more fun to apply. As the names suggest, Cherry Me is cherry scented, Peach Kiss is peach scented and the clear Hydrate is scented with Lemon and Basil. 

If i'm honest, I won't be declaring Maybelline's Baby Lips one of my favorite lip balms anytime soon, though the light tint and sweet fruity scents makes them a welcome addition to my stash and a great product to throw in your bag or pocket for a quick fix. 

Have you tried any of the Baby Lips yet? What do you think?

  1. I have the Cherry one, and I really like it for summer because its just a nice tint, and a decent amount of colour. I just chuck it in my purse for an easy sheer lip colour. Didn't realize they weren't in the UK yet !

  2. This is exciting for you guys! We've had Baby Lips in Canada for probably a year now, but I've never purchased my own. I've heard mixed reviews so I wasn't in a rush to buy any. At least they have cute packaging :)


  3. I always see people raving about them, but I'm just not a tinted lip balm fan! I like lip stains or lip butters! I either just want color, or want super moisture! haha!

  4. Have wanted to try these for such a long time, so glad they're now available in the UK! xxx

  7. I don't see the appeal of these lips balms in all honesty. I might give them a try, but my higher end lip balms will always beat these!


  8. Can't wait to try these now that they're in the U.K and I know about it!

  10. If you think about it, 2.99 is a bit steep for a lip balm really... But I gues because it's got the maybelline brand name it's going to have a higher price tag!!

    Love your blog by the way

  11. I am quite intrigued about these as everybody seems to be talking about them, I prefer a bit more colour myself though!

  13. I must admit I can't get excited about these, they have a ridiculous amount of hype for what I can tell to just be a tinted lip balm. I do like the concept, but I'm already happy with my ones from Burts Bees! x
