I jumped on the bandwagon

There has been so many new cosmetic releases of late and this is yet another raved about item that has made it's way from the US.
Maybelline Baby Lips is available in many places in the UK now for about £2.99.  Superdrug also have them on offer as 2 for £5 saving the princely sum of 98p!
There are six different types, three of them are untinted and three are tinted.

I was actually keen to get the Cherry Lips one but at the last minute decided I would brave Pink Punch.

The bullet itself is housed in a pretty sturdy, run of the mill twist up tube.

There is quite a lot of product there and the colour is surprisingly buildable.  Maybelline claim that the product provides eight hours of moisture but I feel it falls short of that at maybe three to four hours, even less if eating and drinking is involved.  The good thing is that it is handbag handy and so its not too bothersome to reapply on the move.

Pink punch itself has a lovely fruity scent, just like a summery punch drink and has a nice pink tint to it which isn't too bright.  It leaves lips with a nice sheen whilst also giving a wash of colour with just one swipe.  The colour can be built up to give a more intense finish but it is never going to be opaque.

All in all, I find this a cute product that helps keep lips hydrated and looking juicy for a reasonable price but if you are suffering from really dry or chapped lips, you're gonna need something a bit more powerful methinks!

Something to note, the untinted treatment type ones have an SPF 20.

Have you tried Baby Lips?

Do you have a dry lip saviour?
