Does anyone remember how excited we all got for the release of Maybelline Baby Lips here in the UK? I certainly remember checking my local Boots on an almost weekly basis to see if the wonder lip balms, which had already been released in the US, had made their way over here. I've read mixed reviews when it comes to the original Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms but I really like them, with my absolute favourite being of the Dr Rescue variety. So when I heard and saw that they were adding new products to the Maybelline Baby family I was pretty excited to say the least.
Maybelline have long been my favourite drugstore beauty brand. It was the first make-up brand that I ever tried and I think it all started with the Dream Matte Mousse to be fair. Who else remembers caking this on when they first discovered make-up? Anyway, back to the new releases and the tinted hybrid that is the Baby Lips Balm & Blush*. Available in four shades, as shown, the products come in a shape not too disimilar to the eos lip balms but unlike eos', these provide a hint of colour to both the lips and the cheeks.
If you have drier skin, like I do, these work perfectly to add a nice flush of blush to the cheeks. I'm not sure how well they would work on particularly oily skin though. And don't be put off by the rather bright shades, they definitely give more of a hint and sheer pop of colour.
At just £4.99 each I would definitely say that these are well worth trying.
What do you think of these? Which colour stands out to you the most? And are you a fan of multi-purpose products?
