Living in an area with a dry constant heat, I need great lip coverage that moisturizes. I also want one that has a bit of color to it. Maybelline makes a line of lip balms called the Baby Lips line that do both jobs.
I bought the Baby Lips lip balm in the Cherry Me color. The color itself is a very slight yet bright pink. It goes on very easily and leaves a shiny effect. While the color is not too bad, I myself prefer a browner or even reddish color so I will have to try one of the other five colors.
As a moisturizing lip balm, this product does the job quite well. According to Maybelline, the Baby Lips moisturizing balms are supposed to renew your lips within a week’s time. While I have not seen a “renewed” effect, I do feel that my lips are softer during and after wearing this lip balm.
I also like that the balm lasts nearly all day long. Of course, I have to put more on once I eat or drink something, but that’s to be expected with nearly all lip balms. The price was well worth it, each balm is under $3 and can be found in almost any drug store or big box store with a beauty department.
