Maybelline Baby Lips

Picture the scene: I’m bored. It’s a week day evening and I’m running errands, basically popping into Superdrug to pick up dull things I need: a new toothbrush, some make up wipes, hair conditioner. I have a look at the make up stands, wondering if there’s anything new I can pick up to cheer myself up, but realise I basically have enough eyeshadow to sink a ship and that really, buying any more would be like throwing away £7.99 for no reason, so I give up and wander up to the counter…when what do I see?

Maybelline Baby Lips, finally in the UK! I have been wanting to try these cute-sounding lip glosses basically forever, having listened to just about every American YouTuber rave about them, but had pretty much given up on them ever coming out here – and yet here they were, right in front of me, and priced at just £2.99! Obviously, I just had to have one. Somehow, some way, I managed not to buy the entire range and just picked up this one, ‘Peach Kiss’, to test and see if I liked them.

Answer: I love it! It's definitely a lip balm, leaving my lips feeling silky smooth, but the colour pay off is actually really good – it’s the perfect top up for a lipstick, as you can easily apply it on the go without worrying about making any errors. Even worn on its own on a more casual day, the colour is really pretty and natural. And on top of that, it smells incredible – just like peaches, not horrible and synthetic at all!

I’m definitely going to pick up a few more of these! Well done Maybelline – now you just need to release the Bouncy Blushes over here too, and I’ll be really happy!

Have any of you tried Baby Lips? What do you think?  


  1. I saw these online at Boots and Superdrug so went straight down there to get some, but they didn't have them in my local stores! Story of my life! I had to order online instead. Can't wait to try them, they look fab! Great post! (:

  2. They are great you going to love it wait to the new neon color get there to you going to want to collect them all.

  3. I love the baby lips! This is a gorgeous one :) x

  4. For once I am managing to bypass the latest beauty blogger fad as I just know these are not for me. I'm not a lip balm person and don't do the neutral lip. That said it's so difficult why I spy them in the shops not to pick them u!


  5. I keep going back and forth on whether or not I want to get one of these. But if it really smells like peaches I might have to get one.


  6. I have this one!!! I love it and can't wait to try more in the collection too!!
