Whenever there is a wafting of a new product in the air, my nose takes me straight to the source and I somehow always seem to be incapable of walking out of a drugstore empty handed, at least I'm consistent.
The latest offering from Maybelline that had everyone's tongues wagging was their new range of lip balms. A lip balm, doesn't sound all that ground-breaking does it? But oh boy, these have proven to be popular, when I finally made my way to a store, there were only these 3 colours left, so naturally I picked up one of each, not wanting to miss out. I did have my eye on the peach shade but alas, it wasn't meant to be. I'm a sucker for marketing and so picked these up on a whim and had no real expectations at all so I'm pleased to announce (yes, this is an actual declaration, if I had a box to stand, I would) that I really like these lip sticks.
From left we have; Pink Punch, Hydrate and Cherry Me.
The Hydrate formula is clear in colour and is a little 'meh' but handy to have with you on the go for quick and clean lip moisturising, no wiping your finger on your sleeves post-application like a potted balm, you know what I'm talking about.
The coloured balms is where we're talking, both pack a good amount of colour pay-off and Cherry Me is my personal favourite for a wash of rosey lips without the fuss and commitment of a red lip.
I don't find these to be great for hydrating as they sit on top of the lips and don't do a hell of a lot other than look pretty, but sometimes that's what make-up is. It is another stash of balms to add to my collection and I hear whisperings of a neon range coming out? Sign me up!
Have you tried these? Do I need to try the peach shade?
