Baby Lips Review

Hello sprinkles!

My baby lips addiction is pretty much as big as addictions can get and I'm at the point where I can't leave my house without at least one on me, I just can't - it usually ends up with me bringing 2 or 3 with me just for good measure! So who better to review the collection than an addict who knows pretty much everything there is to know about them?

Incase you didn't already know, baby lips are a collection of tinted and flavoured lip balms from Maybelline that specialise in rehydrating your lips so they feel (and look) softer. Currently there are 6 different balms available in England and they range from fresh flavours to fruity flavours to just plain hydration; hopefully there will be more released shortly to fuel my addiction! All 6 of the balms offer SPF 20 which will be very handy in the summer months when it will *hopefully* be sunny and warm!

Cherry me

Cherry me tastes and smells exactly like delicious cherries and shares the beautiful red colour of a ripe cherry too. When applied, cherry me gives you a gorgeous glossy sheer red tint, which is ideal if you are not a fan of wearing bold reds on your lips, but you can build it up with a couple of quick coats to get a deep red. It also gives very good moisture (similar to the Nivea lip balms) and definitely leaves my lips feeling softer for a good few hours.

Intense care

Intense care is a colourless balm that has a very light tropical scent which I absolutely love. Unfortunately the scent only sticks around for a few minutes after the balm is applied.

Contrary to the name, this balm actually doesn't have any extra hydrating qualities compared to the others, which is rather disappointing. You would have expected a balm named 'Intense care' to offer intense care and hydration but apparently not; it even shares the exact same ingredients as baby lips hydration! (Although I definitely prefer this)

Pink punch

Pinky punch is an extremely vibrant balm, both in colour and in taste. By that I mean it is exploding with different fruity flavours (just like fruit punch) and is just so so yummy! The colour is a bright pink which has a lovely sheen when applied and is also very pigmented.

Minty fresh

Minty fresh is a colourless balm that tastes almost exactly like polos. (I've previously conducted an experiment to prove this) It is very refreshing and is definitely my go to balm for everyday hydration. You can even feel it working as you get a slight tingling sensation on your lips!


Hydration is definitely my least favourite out of all the balms; although it's name is hydration I feel that it only gives you a light surface moisture and hydration which wears off very quickly. I'm not a fan of the scent either, I think it was meant to be berry (which I can very lightly smell) but the sun screen in it is too overpowering and you loose the original scent. You can also taste the sun screen in this one which is not nice.

Peach kiss

I'm not going to bother telling you what this tastes like because I'm pretty sure you can work it out for yourself. (hint: its peach) When applied to your lips this balm has a pretty nude tint with a slightly shimmered finish. It's a very subtle balm but I find that it actually compliments my skin tone wonderfully!
