Review: Maybelline Baby Lips in Peach Kiss

Baby Lips came out last year and took the beauty community by storm. I bought this in September but never opened it because I was trying to finish other lip balms. I finally started using it last week and unfortunately my experience wasn't as great as all the raves I read about.

Swatched on my hand.

Smeared on a tissue.

Opinion

I was really excited to use this but I would not say this is my favorite lip balm. When I first opened it, it smelled yummy like fuzzy peaches but now the taste/smell is kind of off putting. The main problem is that when I put on lip balm, I tend to put on quite a few layers. This makes the color look really nude, shimmery, and unnatural. Some people say it's really sheer. But for me, it's too pigmented for a lip balm.

It is moisturizing but I haven't noticed any improvements in my skin texture. Also I feel like the lip balm settles into my lines and make them more noticeable. So all in all, I would not recommend this. The packaging is cute but also cheap looking.
