Who else like me, screamed in excitement when they saw that little message on the Boots website saying "Babylips coming soon!"? I know it wasn't just me! I immediately added myself to the mailing list so i could be told as soon as they were available to buy. The BabyLips have been one of those products every british bblogger and guru has been dying to try since the US bloggers have been raving about them!
|L to R: Cherry Me, Peach Kiss and Pink Punch|
I picked up 3 of the 6, the tinted ones! Pink Punch (a bight pink), Cherry Me (a cherry red) and Peach Kiss (a peachy nude). I didn't buy all six as i already have enough regular lip balms whereas tinted lip balms are my vice! I suffer from very dry and chapped lips and am constantly re-applying lip balm to try and combat this problem! Maybelline claim that the Baby Lips give 8 hours of hydration, which sounded just too good to me! Although 3 out of 6 of the lip balms have SPF20 it's only the non-tinted ones sadly! I was surprised with the colour pay off, i was expecting very sheer and not noticeable on the lips but i was pleasantly surprised. Cherry Me and Pink Punch especially pack a punch in the colour pay off department - Cherry Me being my favourite scent and Pink Punch my favourite colour! Peach kiss doesn't have much colour pay off but makes up for it because it smells super yummy! I'd say these have more like 3/4 hours of hydration, especially if eating and drinking. At only £2.99 too they're great value for money. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous though, so bright and eye catching.
