Baby Lips Review

A while back there was a a huge hype about Maybelline New York’s new product Baby Lips. Being quite curious (and left out because I didn’t have it) I bought it. I got the clear one in the blue package called Quenched. It has SPF 5. I used for five testing days and assumed it was working but it was in fact drying my lips. It would feel really nice at first but after five minutes I had to reapply. And it was very oily! Yuck! It tasted weird and the smell eventually wore off. I only ever use this for the beach. I don’t think I will be buying this product again. I think the only reason it was so popular was because it gave teens an excuse to wear a lipstick type thing and there parents wouldn’t get mad because its just tinted lip balm.

Overall I give this: ***

Three out of five stars because it has SPF and smells alright. But that’s about it. Goodbye for now! ;)
