Don't sit there and judge me! It's not my fault that these new Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal lip balms jumped into my shopping cart at Wal-Mart. I don't even think I was looking in that direction when it happened! Besides, it's not like I have that many of them!!
ALL LIES! Sighhhh. I was just minding my own business in Wally World when I saw these. I don't even think I knew that they were coming out! The website says that they have 6 new shimmering shades. I
suckered ended up purchasing only 2 of them. I picked up Twinkling Taupe
and Beam of Blush.
Both of these colors appeared in the package to be women of color safe. When I got them home and used them, I realized that they all are probably women of color safe. They don't give off much color at all. They also don't give off much sparkle. That's ok because I don't like a lot of sparkle but Maybelline probably shouldn't advertise these as sparkly if they aren't. Someone else might get mad.
They do moisturize and they do last a while (no, not 8 hours like they say) but they aren't anything special. I mean they aren't anything special as compared to other Baby Lips lip balms. My fave Baby Lips is the one that smells like fruity pebbles. I have 2 of those (one for work and one for home -- see! That's totally acceptable). These Baby Lips do rock the heck out of all other lip balms though -- make no mistake.
So, do I regret buying these? Of course not. Had I known they weren't anything special would I have purchased them? No, probably not. Will that keep me from buying whatever comes out next? Of course not!
Me and Maybelline Baby Lips have a thing going on.
Have you tried these yet? What's your fave?
