My Review of Maybelline Spiced Up Baby Lips:
I must confess ladies, that I am a lip product junkie and a die-hard Maybelline Baby Lips Fan. Whenever any new lip product hits the market, I am all for it! So this time when Maybelline launched their 3 absolutely new shades in the Baby Lips range, I jumped with joy. I have all the variants of the Maybelline Baby Lips so far, so how could I pass on these babies!! Well, I think I can safely speak out my heart here as I know I am not the only “crazy makeup lover” (what normal people consider us to be). Anyways, without further getting off tracked, let me explain this baby in detail.
Packaging: The Maybelline Spiced Up Lip Balm comes in an oval shaped cardboard box with cute graphic designs and other details about the product. The packaging of the balm is like the regular baby lips available in India. The lip balm tube is color-coded which makes it easy to locate in your makeup stash. It is also travel friendly and the cap shuts well with a click sound (which makes me happy).
Colour: The colour of the lip balm tube of shade Tropical Punch is a pink with reddish undertones. When swatched or applied on the lips, it shows up like a light pink, still leaning more towards red. Ok, I guess I confused you!! Basically, it is a light pinkish red shade on the lips. If you are still confused, please refer to the swatch. All in all, it’s a pretty shade but less pigmented than the Berry Sherbet variant.
Texture: The texture of this baby is like the other coloured variants if the Maybelline Lip Balm. By the way, have you noticed that the texture of the coloured Baby Lips and the colourless ones differ from each other?? Yes!! The colourless ones are more hydrating with greater staying power. Anyways, the texture of this one is very light-weight yet super buttery and creamy and glides on the lips like a dream. I like it.
Smell: The fragrance of this lip balm is very fruity with a hint of spice..something like fruit chat!! Maybelline has really nailed it with the fragrance of their lip balms this time. It is so alluring, that you may want to keep on re-applying it often.
Pigmentation: The pigmentation of this particular shade is in between the pigmentation of the regular Baby Lips and the Berry Sherbet which I will review next. It sure shows up better than the earlier variants, but less pigmented as compared to Berry Sherbet. I do like it since it gives a natural flush of colour to the lips.
Longevity: The lasting power of this spiced up balm is about 2 to 3 hours with light snacking, post which, re-application is necessary. I personally don’t mind reapplying it several times.
Quality: The overall quality of this spiced up lip balm is splendid. It does not claim to cure or heal chapped lips and it does not do that, so I am absolutely fine with it. It does hydrate the lips until it is on the lips and also imparts a beautiful tint. Well, that’s enough for serving my purpose and satisfying me!
