Maybelline Babylips

Hello Lovelies!

I hope you are all having a good week so far, I can't believe its October already! It's been pouring down with rain here as soon as it changed to October! Time to get the winter woolies on I think!

Yes yes, I know what you're thinking...not ANOTHER Babylips review! But I couldn't not review them! I was so excited to hear that Maybelline were finally releasing the very coveted Babylips in Ireland and the UK. I had heard so many ravings coming from across the pond about these lipbalms that I knew I had to get them ASAP.
The ones I picked up were Peach Kiss, Mint Fresh and Pink Punch. Both Pink Punch and Peach Kiss do have a (very) slight tint to them while Mint Fresh is clear. First of the packaging, it is definitely cheap and cheerful. They do jump out at you from the shelves because they look so bright and fun! They are so handy and compact to throw into your bag for the day.
Being honest they are not the most hydrating lip balms, the 8 hour moisture claims might be slightly exaggerated but for the price you can't really complain, plus I think they are really just a bit of fun. My favourite at the moment is Peach Kiss, it gives a nice nude colour on the lips. Pink Punch gives alot more colour to the lips I find so I save that for days when I don't want to bother with much else on my lips!
Overall I think these are nice to try, but if you need some intense hydration Babylips are not the one for you. They are available online here for €4.49.
Have you tried the Babylips? What are your thoughts?


  1. I still haven't tried any but I just like the packaging...hahaha I think it looks really cute! :)

  2. I was so excited when I saw these in Boots as I'd heard so many great things about them! But I was so disappointed when I tried them.. They're just too drying on my lips :( Great review! x

    1. I actually did find Pink Punch a little drying! :( xx

  3. I have Cherry Me and I really like it, Peach Kiss looks lovely too. I agree with them not being the best lip balms though, I thought they'd be better considering the hype x

  4. They're finally available in Slovenia. I need to hunt them down, since it looks like girls went crazy over them :)

  5. It's a pity these aren't greatly hydrating. You think at such a high price (drugstore wise) you'd get a little more :/ x -

  6. I'm so undecided on whether I really want to buy these or not. Although knowing that they aren't THAT hydrating I probably wont, but the packaging is so cute it'll be a struggle to pass them in Boots. Great review!!

  7. I absolutely love this product! it is so perfect for school and work because its shades are so subtle!
    It would be super cool if you could check out my blog :)

  8. I don't find them any different to a normal chap stick if I'm honest but I do love the blue one! They definitely don't provide 8 hours of moisture though xx
