Maybelline Baby Lips (New Bright Collection) in Tangerine Pop | Too Sheer for its Name

15 Oct

Every girl I know loves lip balms! And why shouldn’t we?

So when the famous Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms released their newest collection called “New Bright Collection,” I wanted to try one stat! Good thing the October 2013 BDJ Box included one in the color that I like — Tangerine Pop!

If you would notice, I love anything coral — from blushes to lipstick. I just think it looks good on someone with a yellow undertone like me. And with the catchy name this lip balm has, who wouldn’t want it, right?

For me, Maybelline has the cutest lip balm packaging that is suitable for all ages. It’s nice that they kept the “Baby Lips” label in the tube consistent. The color of the tube just matches the shade the lip balm has. At first glance, the lip balm looks promising on the tube. But when swatched and applied directly on the lips, it goes on sheer with a bit of shimmer. It feels a little sticky when I rub my lips together, though. It has a very sheer coral tint that is not too obvious. This almost looks like the Revlon Lip Butter I reviewed here.

I was a bit disappointed with the color pay off because it is not what and how I expected it to be. I was expecting it to be more opaque, or as its name says — bright. It turned out otherwise but despite the pigmentation, this lip balm still glides very smoothly on the lips. It still had that moisturizing effect and SPF that the other Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms have. It is still effective for a lip balm. It has a very light and subtle scent, unlike the other Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms I’ve tried (Berry Crush and Mint) which are more scented. It did not last too long on my lips. I applied this then had lunch and drank plenty of water. After two hours upon application, the lip balm faded its way but it left my lips moisturized. Not really a problem because I can always reapply throughout the day.
