Product Review: Maybelline Baby Lips


Let me just start out by apologizing to the people that I talked to right after I purchased this item and was in love with it. I should not have jumped the gun.

Now with that said, I finally (after weeks of searching) found a store that had the Maybelline Baby Lips flavor I wanted. I didn't want any of the tinted balms because I like my lip balms clear. I have lip gloss to add color. Anyway, the two plain flavors were Peppermint and Quenched. I wanted to find Quenched and trust me, I looked everywhere for it. Finally, I bought the last one at the Rite Aid down the road from my house. I was so excited I ripped off the wrapping and immediately tried it out. If anyone has tried Nivea lip balm, I can compare it to that initially. Sot as thick, has a greasier feel. Not greasy bad, just when I think of lip balm, I want it to stay. Greasier balms tend to wipe off and in this case that's just what happened. I loved the smell, taste, etc. but after a couple days of using this product I noticed a few things. One, I had to reapply A LOT. If I chewed gum, it was gone. If I had a snack, it was gone. So that was a little annoying, but then I noticed something worse. My lips. In the warmer months, I barely use lip balm, but I always keep in on me. My lips were becoming as chapped as if it were the middle of January. It was like the more applied the stuff, the worse my lips actually got. And what's really irritating is that this is supposed to be an 8 hour product. Um, try 8 minutes. Needless to say I know that a lot of people are raving about this product, but I will not be one of them. I'm going back to my Burt's Bees or EOS balm so I can repair the damage this has done. It's such a shame, I get so upset when a product isn't what it says it's going to be.

Have you tried Baby Lips? What was your experience like?

I actually own the clear one too. I LIKE it not LOVE it. I use it as a base under my lipstick and it's been ok for me. However, I recently found Burt's Bee (never used before) and it is hands-down better than Baby Lips.

I am not a big fan of this stuff either. I also purchased the clear one and found I have to reapply frequently. It keeps my lips moist for about .2 seconds and then my mouth feels dry.

I like it, but it isn't worth the price for me. Oh and I took a drink of water right after putting it on and almost threw up --worst taste ever.

I get so tickled at these being called baby lips. Glad to know they're not worth it.

I love it! I keep it on my nightstand. I use EOS during the day so keeping my Baby Lips by the bed insures that a)I awake with soft lips and b)I always know where it is
