the RAVE: BABY LIPS

1- Grape Vine/ 2- Pink Punch/ 3- Cherry Me/ 4- Quenched/ 5- Peach Kiss/ 6- Peppermint

DISCLAIMER- THIS POST WAS NOT SPONSORED BY MAYBELLINE. ALL PRODUCTS WERE PURCHASED BY OH SO PRETTY.

Well it all started with the pink one. I bought it mostly because the packaging is fun and I liked the idea of a lip product that would make lips feel "baby soft." Turns out, I LOVE THIS STUFF. It goes on so smooth and some of these give off the sheerest amount of color. With the pink one, or the "Pink Punch" one, you can put a few layers on to make the color darker. To me, it's the perfect shade of pink. In one layer it can enhance your natural lip color or with a couple more layers, it can be a fun and brighter pink color. And either way your lips feel amazing. It's not sticky and they all smell awesome! (Hence, the names.) "Quenched" is the only one whose name doesn't reflect it's smell- it's a tropical-y-ish smell. We've tried to figure out what it smells like but that's all we could come up with. Anyways... I love all of these. After I fell in love with the pink one I had to try all of the rest of them so I now own the whole collection.

Grape Vine- Purple-ish Red
Pink Punch- Bright Pink

Cherry Me- Pink-ish Red
Quenched- Clear

Peach Kiss- Bronze-y
Peppermint- Clear and Minty

These are the colors swatched onto my hand. I swatched them all with three layers to show you the color they build to. (Quenched and Peppermint don't give off any color.) From left to right we have Grape Vine, Pink Punch, Cherry Me, and Peach Kiss.

Did I mention you can pretty much buy these anywhere and they only cost around $3? Go get ya some! Or don't! Doesn't matter to me but, they are pretty sweet.
 

P.S. I forgot to mention that none of these are glossy. They have a sheen much like chapstick only a little smoother and tiiiiny bit shinier. I'm not a huge fan of lipgloss so to me, these give off the perfect amount of shine. And if you put on a couple layers, the shine gets stronger.

  1. I have #4. I'm quite sure what to use it for. It's not shiny, so I can't use it for a gloss, and it doesn't work liuke chapstick, but I still use it. Oh well! I love their tubes! That's pretty much the only reason I bought it.

    1. That's sort of what I love about them. You can get a sheer color on your lips without getting the shiny look that lipgloss gives. But then again, I am not a huge lipgloss fan at all. If I use one of the colors I use it in place of lipstick or gloss and if I use one of the clear ones, it's just for moisture on my lips.

  7. These look awesome! I love makeup but I'm really not much of a lipstick girl...I usually just wipe on a some chapstick, hehe. But it'd be nice to have the soft lips feel with a little color. Annnd for only $3! GREAT.

    Really wanting the bronz-y one & the bright pink!

  8. I adore lipstick but now with summer coming around, I need something sheer that doesn't need a lot of touch-ups. Thanks for the review!

  9. I am obsessed with Baby Lips. It quite possibly might be the 1st chapstick, or tube of anything for that matter, that I actually will finish here pretty soon. I blogged about it a little bit ago.

  11. I just so happened to stop by Target on my way home from work last night, and what did I see on clearance for $2.98? These bad boys! A two pack to be exact (Pink Punch and Quenched). AND Target just so happened to have a $1.00 off any Maybelline product coupon, so I ended up walking out paying about $2. Score! So glad I saw your post on this yesterday or I probably would've walked right past these babies :) Good find!
