[REVIEW] Maybelline New York Baby Lips Lip Balm

They're finally in Finland ! I've been reading about these in so many blogs for too long time. It was about time they arrived to Finland. What are they, you ask? They are Maybelline New York Baby Lips ! They arrived to Finland about a week ago and they're already sold out pretty much everywhere. I searched many stores to find out if they have these or not. I was lucky when I went to K-Citymarket at Sello !

There are 6 moisturizing shades and I bought 3 of those ~ I've been waiting for so long to find out what's so special about these that everyone's raving about them LOL ! So this is my review and swatches of these 3 shades I have ~

 DESCRIPTION

After reading more on Maybelline site I found out that there are many other types as well. This review is just about the only one that they sells in Finland. There are also Baby Lips Crystal, Baby Lips Dr. Rescue, Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm. I'd like to try out those too, especially the Dr. Rescue one ! I hope they lands to Finland someday too...

 PACKAGING 

These lip balms comes in a colorful, simple and pretty cute packaging. The lip balm itself is inside a normal twist-able plastic packet and the packet is inside a carton packaging. On the carton you can read what shade your lip balm is and behind the packaging you can see the ingredients and test results as well as the fact that you can use the product for 2 YEARS after opening. That's crazy ! Usually lip balms are usable for 1 year max after opening and lipsticks are 6 months. If you didn't know that now you know :D



The three shades I got are: Peach Kiss, Pink Punch and Cherry Me

 WHERE TO BUY 

I'm sure you can buy these pretty much everywhere around the world now. In Finland you can buy this from Anttila, K-Citymarket, Sokos, Sokos Emotion, Stockmann and probably many other chains too. That is if you manage to find them anywhere... The price I bought them was 3,90€/one lip balm but I know some who bought them for 4,20€/one so it varies. The recommendation price in Finland is 3,90 so that's the minimum price for these I think.

 SCENT & TEXTURE 

The scent in all of these lip balms is pretty typical for lip balms. The scent is pretty strong and artificial when you smell it from the lip balm itself but on the lips it disappears. I personally like the scents ~

Peach Kiss has very slight peach scent to it but pretty strong artificial scent. Pink Punch smells like really artificial strawberry juice if you know that scent. I like that scent a lot ~ And Cherry Me smells like cherries to me. The scent kinda reminds me of Coca Cola cherry one if you know that scent :D

Peach Kiss, Pink Punch, Cherry Me

The texture is slightly shimmery as you can see. They glides smoothly on my lips and I can see my lips looking softer really fast. I didn't expect them to give this much color ! On my lips Pink Punch is the most visible. Peach Kiss one just gives a bit shimmer and makes my lips look a bit plumper but no any visible color on the lips. Cherry Me is also visible but I'd say it makes my own lip color just look a bit even and darker. So these are all very natural shades and thus perfect for summer when I don't wear any make up unless I'm going somewhere. I'd say these go well during winter too when you don't want to wear too drying lipsticks but still want your lips to look good ~ 

 SUMMARY 

+ Cheap price
+ Nice looking package :D
+ Nice, natural shades. More color than I expected
+ Good to use around the year
+ Usable for 24 months after opening !
+/- Good yet kinda strong and artificial scents
+/- Moisturizes like any other lip balm. Can't beat my HG lip balm from ACO in that 

 RATING: 4+/5  Would I repurchase this product? I'm pretty sure I would buy more unless I come across to a better alternative. I'd like to try out the other Baby Lip products too ~

That's it for this review. Have you gotten your hands to these yet? If so what you think about them? Comment below and let me know ~~  I'd be more than glad to read your thoughts about these ^^
