Maybelline Baby Lips Review & Giveaway ! [Closed]

alia2

So what does it take to be the talk of the town? High heels and kissable lips! Alia Bhatt is the new face for Maybelline Baby Lips and we think she is the perfect choice for this series. Maybelline has always packaged itself as a leading international talk of the townrefined cosmetic brand, formerly endorsed by sophisticated supermodels Diana Penty, Esha Gupta and Deepika Padukone.  However this time round, Alia Bhatt caught the fancy of the Maybelline marketing team for their “Baby Lips” series, as she represents the young teenage girl of India today. So with Alia on board, Maybelline now presents itself as a peppy, youthful and chic brand, targeting mostly the younger crowd. The team unveiled their Baby Lips Kiss Song, which apparently features 6,000 kisses sounds shared by fans. The girly song is catchy, full of colours & really addictive! Check out the video and you will know exactly what I mean.


What The Product Endorses:
Maybelline Baby Lips promises visibly renewed, smooth and cushioned lips all day long. Baby Lips hydrates and moisturizes lips for a full 8 hours. It promises an exclusive lip renewal formula with a SPF 20 lip balm that would protect your lips from the strong sun, wind or cold. After 4 weeks, you can expect to see fine lines of your lips reduced and an increase in the elasticity and suppleness of your lips.

My Review:
So I got my set of the above 4 Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm (retail: around SGD $5.90/ Rs 150 each) from my nearest pharmacy. I picked up Baby Pink, Cherry Velvet, Protecting Berry and Pink Blast flavours. Firstly, I love the packaging – it’s funky and cheerful. Baby lips’ presentation would appeal to young teenage girls. DSC_0154CRGIMPThey look adorable and definitely brought a smile to my face.

So, I tried them one by one. Upon applying it for the first time, I must say that the balm simply sat on my lips effortlessly.  It was slick and light and not waxy.  Now for the shades – Baby Pink is a shimmery light pink that borders on frosty while Pink Blast is a cool-toned pink. Protecting Berry is peach while Cherry velvet is of a warm rosy tone. With the exception of Baby Pink and Pink Blast, which contain a glow factor, all the balms are pretty much on sheer side.  This works well for girls who prefer to have a lighter balm colour. For those who want a darker and a more obvious shade on the lips, you might have to apply it twice! The Baby Lips balms have a soft fruity fragrance to them and the flavor level tends to vary from shade to shade.

IMG_2555What’s Good:
I love how Maybelline’s Baby Lips not only moisturizes your lips, IMG_2561but also provides a nice colored tint! The best part – you can control how dark or sheer you want each shade to be! The packaging is flamboyant and as compared to other lip balms, these did not feel heavy or thick on the lips. There is no taste but the fruity fragrance is definitely a plus point! Most importantly, it’s very much affordable! For around SGD $6/ Rs. 150, I think they’re a fun new addition to your beauty aisle.

What’s Bad:
My lips are usually very dry. So, the “8-hr hydration” did not quite turn out to be true for me as I did feel the need to reapply this product within 4-6hrs.

My rating – 4/5

What Now? It’s Give-Away Time! [CLOSED]

  10. Writing about Album of The Month might be awesome, not? 😀
    I believe other readers are into music as well, and this might complete this blog!

  11. Hi Rit, first of all I think you’ve done a great job on the site so far and you have covered many interesting areas with focus on fashion and Bollywood related posts. You definitely have a talent for the written word!

    Personally, I think that while maintaining your blog’s theme, you can also cover topics that include what modern young women like ourselves go through– in terms of life choices/paths, careers, dating/marriage and so on. I think exploring the concept of what lies ‘behind the eyes of a modern woman’ will widen your target audience as it is something everyone can relate to and it is also something that could possibly stimulate greater discussion.

    All the best and keep up the good work!!! =)

  12. Hey Ritz

    Firstly I would like to say that you have been doing a great job so far.

    To improve I would suggest you need to touch on topics like food for sure as we singaporeans love to eat and also touch on topics for young mothers.

    Me being a young mom I google a lot of stuff that I need to learn or improve in terms of fashion, after pregnancy loosing weight and also on Sex related topics.

    I guess many woman are shy to ask or talk about sex life which I find is very important in today’s life. Not just for the pleasure part but also for conceiving and maintaining good health.

    All the best.

    Cheers

  13. Oh no! I missed the deadline 🙁

    But hey, I had to write congratulating you on the brilliant job you’re doing with Spotlight. Fun, informative and refreshing reads! You’ve got pretty much everything covered. Perhaps, what more I’d like to see on Spotlight is youth interests outside of movies as well – dance, music, theatres, books, sports, enterprises etc.

    Once again, keep up the good work! Cheers 🙂
