Pucker Up! | Maybelline Baby Lips in Anti-Oxidant Berry.

Although these line of lip balms from Maybelline have been in the market for quite some time now (they were launched around October last year, If I'm not mistaken), they're definitely new in this part of country. Saw them on display at Watson's (SM San Pablo) 'New Products' section for the first time last month, during the 3-day mallwide sale.

After receiving this massive loot from my husband,  I made a resolve to refrain from buying makeup for the time being. But I just couldn't resist these pretty little things.


Their design and packaging are definitely screaming for attention. The flavors look yummy, and the promise of renewed, baby-soft lips makes them all the more interesting.


I wanted to try them all, but since I still have an ample supply from Carmex, I bought just one lip balm. I went for the Anti-Oxidant Berry because it's pink. And seeing how only a few of them were left in the display rack, I figured it's the best-seller among the four flavors.


The Maybelline promise - instant eight-hour moisture, rejuvenated lips in one week.


Its active ingredient, centella, is known for its anti-aging and rejuvenating properties. Other ingredients found in the Baby Lips are shea butter and vitamin complex. The former has healing properties, while the latter is a known anti-oxidant. 


As such, this lip balm not only moisturizes, it also makes your kisser softer and more supple. Reduces fine lines, too. Sun protection is also a bonus. SPF20 on a lip balm, I'm fine with that.


Don't confuse this with the US version of Baby Lips, though. Theirs are tinted lip balms (think Revlon's ColorBurst Lip Butter) that come in six different variants. Ours are untinted, and come in four flavors.


What I love: 
- The packaging. (Very cute, IMHO.)
- The price. (Php 79 only.)
- The sun protection factor.
- The scent. (Sweet and light berry scent, that's not overpowering.)
- Non-greasy and lightweight.
- Moisturizes and softens lips.

What I don't like:
- Their animal testing policy. (Quite confusing since what the company claims is different from what the Leaping Bunny says.)

I'm tempted to try the Relieving Menthol variant, just so I could compare it against the classic Carmex. But I must restrain myself from buying since I have a pack of my favorite EOS - the real HG lip balm - arriving very soon. 

On a different note, great things are about to happen to The Rebel Sweetheart.
August is gonna be awesome, folks! I will TAKE CONTROL!
Sounds cryptic for now, but I will spill the beans very soon. Watch out for it! :)

Most lip balms only have SPF 15 so this brand is really worth your money. It's not even expensive!

hhhmmm.. im not a make-up lover but a gloss will surely help m protect my lips from drying out during im out in the field.

Divine C. said...

I have of their baby lips collection! I love Maybelline not just because of the quality but their products are so affordable!

Tash said...

I LOVE lipgloss and lipbalm, I have quite a collection personally! Im a little OCD, I hate having dry lips and maybe this one might be the solution! It sounds so fab I think I'll give it a go!

The product itself seems good but the packaging is too teenybopper for my taste. The animal testing bit is also discouraging.

Gigi Beleno said...

I think I would like to try all the flavors but I need to check first if they have it here at SM Calamba, or I'll go and visit San Pablo :)

Rowena Wendy Lei said...

The packaging is very cute and the P79 price tag makes it irresistible! I'm also attracted to the fact that it's non-greasy and lightweight. :)

Sumi Go said...

I've been using my Carmex lip balm for quite some time now and it's already become tiring despite how good the product is for my lips. Maybe I'll grab and try the Maybelline Baby Lips the next time I visit Watson's :)

Badet said...

I want to buy this too because of the packaging. But I have too many lip balms and my trusty Burt's Bees, ang tagal maubos. Kaya di rin ako makabili ng Carmex. But it's a steal for just Php 79.

Mich of Mich Eats and Shops said...

I have two of the baby lips products as you know and I use them all the time. Super nice naman on my lips. I wish they made our versions tinted also. I was expecting them to be tinted actually huhuhu

Momfever said...

The look very cheery! It never ceases to amaze me the kind of things they come with up. Anti-Oxidant lipstick.
What will they come up with next!

Pepper Tan said...

I don't really wear makeup, but I know my lips could use a sweep or two of gloss. They tend to crack.

Oh, I wonder what's happening this August... ;)

mail4rosey said...

It does sound delightful. I like a good lip balm too.

teJan said...

oh, I love maybeline, I'm a long time client..hahha. I just love their products.

Hmm, August can be exciting then? My birth month?..heheh

CrazyNutsMom said...

It's hard to find an inexpensive balm with a good SPF. Thanks for the info!

ReviewsSheROTE Pamela R said...

My daughter just saw this the other day--the great colors on the package SURE does CATCH the eye!
She's sort of on lip gloss over load right now--Although I did go back and by a few as stocking stuffers--Love that it has SPF20!

SmilingSally said...

Thanks for sharing.

Happy Blue Monday!

Kai Sensei said...

I actually have the bluegreen variant of this! I think its the relieving menthol. I bought it when my lips were chapped and plus yeah.. the packaging looked really cool! The menthol worked and I liked its effect. I sometimes use it before I put on lipstick but then the lipstick comes off quickly when I do that. I think I lost it though.. so I might try this other one. Thanks for sharing!

eJoops said...

I need one of those! Hopping by from Blue Monday!


Please come and see my BLUE, thank you.

Using lip balms mostly on winter. Haven't tried the Maybelline product though. If ever I can find one here I love to try the anti-oxidant berry as well.
