BabyLips Worth the Hype?

BabyLips Worth the Hype?
Probably breaking a few baby lips hearts out their (sorry guys!) but this post is a lip product that I don't think is worth its hype.
Maybelline Baby Lips have become very popular in the blogging world and everyone loves using them. They are worth I believe £2.99? which is cheap but - for me they aren't worth the hype everyone is given.

This is the one Maybelline babylips lip balm I own in pink punch.

I am glad it is the only one I own to be completely honest, I ain't too fussed about the £2.99 I am glad they are cheap to get a hold of because if this was say £7-8 I may have been more disappointed.

Before I even purchased the one Babylip I own I wasn't keen on the packaging, I had this discussion with another blogger on Twitter and she agreed. The packaging can put you off them as in my eyes it is a little tacky and cheap looking. I do like the colour of the actual lip product itself but the packaging for me was putting me off.

Anyway's I put the packaging to aside and when trailing around Boots admiring the make-up section I saw these on the side isles hanging down on one of those card stands. I picked the pink one up as pink is my common lip product colour to purchase and tried it once I got home.
When I first opened it I smelt it - I thought it smelt quite nice, but when I applied it to my lips my instant thought was "has it did anything?" because literally I felt no difference on my lips.
I tried it again a few days later before going to uni to see if it added anything to my lips..nope. I saw no difference I am applying it the right way I don't think the can be a right or wrong way to apply a lip product like this.
I tried it again not long after and noticed after 2 other attempts that this time my lips looked the tiniest bit pink not noticeable whatsoever. They don't moisturize very well either, they say they last '8 hours' I don't even think they lasted 5 minutes for me. It may just be this one shade - maybe others are better?

Pros
Smells nice
Easy to get a hold of
Inexpensive
Appealing colours

Cons
took 3 attempts till I saw a tiny difference
not '8 hour' lasting
packaging isn't appealing
don't add much colour or moisture

I will keep retrying like this product as it is a shame to see something so hyped up for it not to work for me..maybe I need a darker shade? But unfortunately this shade was awful for me.

What are your thoughts on Maybelline Baby Lips?

  3. Aw, that's too bad! Everyones skin/body reacts differently to products. I quite enjoy them but I've been purchasing the Nivea Lip Butter and I actually like it more than Babylips! You might try and give that one a go. :)

  4. I bought the same one as you and didn't like it either. It did feel moisturising for me though but I know what you mean about the packaging. For me the design and colour of the bullet remind me of a little girls lipstick.

  5. Great, honest review :) I'm quite a fan of my usual nivea so I'm still not sure whether to bother with trying babylips, who knows, I'll probably succumb one day in superdrug! L xo

  6. Great review, I wanted to try these but have been put off by a few bad reviews. I think I'll still give them a go because you never know, I guess. But I definitely won't be getting this shade now! xx

  8. I find these really hit and miss. I own the colour above and find it isn't at all moisturizing and the colour applies really patchy. It also doesn't last we'll on the lips and just doesn't look nice. Like you said, I'm glad they're only a few pounds! However, I also own the darker pink one and the formula is completely different. It's lovely and glossy and reallupy moisturising too. The colour is really nice and great for adding a subtle tone. It lasts well too. It's odd that they're so different but I doubt I'll be trying any more!

  10. I was a bit late jumping on the bandwagon too! I only picked it up because it was my free product in a 3 for 2 and I completely agree with you about the lack of moisturisation and the tacky packaging.
    But for me, I actually think I get a bit too much colour payoff! I end looking a bit OTT Barbie doll because it shows up such a bright pink on my lips... Must just be a skin/lip tone thing.

    But a good post to read :)

  11. I completely agree with you! I was so excited when they were finally released in the UK so bought two as they were on offer for like 2 for £5.00 or something. But yeah I agree that when you apply it, hardly anything comes off. I feel like I have to press it down really hard for it to actually go on my lips although I have to disagree with you I think the colours of the packaging are great :P Great post!
