Maybelline Baby Lips in 'Pink Punch' Review & Swatch

I'd imagine theres probably 10 thousand reviews on the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balms by now, however, some of you were keen to know my thoughts so I figured I'd do a quick write up of my opinion on the Baby Lips Tinted Lip Balm in 'Pink Punch' - a buildable, mid-toned pink, gloss finish balm.

Personally, I was quite excited to see the UK release of the Baby Lips after the hype period over in the US. However, after I spied a few PRs I was quite disappointed to see 3 clear balms in the line of 6. In my eyes, you can buy a cheap, clear balm anywhere. It was the colour of the balm and the fun packaging which caused such a stir, so I don't quite understand why they chose to stagger the release of half a line of clear balms when there are other tinted shades still available in Asia. 

Despite this I did pick one up, of course the brightest one out of the three. They claim to rejuvenate your lips in 7 days. Do I agree with this? no not at all. I think the moisturising effects are minimal and most certainly temporary. Personally I feel like the formula is just too liquid, it needs to be thickened to produce any sort of barrier. I wouldn't say the Baby Lips are any better or worse than other offerings like Burt's Bees, Vaseline or Korres. Personally, I think they're just 'different'. For me, the Baby Lips are (and have always been) about being a cute, girly, tinted balm in pretty packaging. I'll continue to use this for a light, low maintenance wash of colour, but I won't rely on it throughout the Winter.
What are your thoughts on the Maybelline Baby Lips? Do you agree with the hype?
