Maybelline Baby Lips Coral Flush - Review, Swatch

Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm has taken the Indian beauty market by storm ever since its launch a couple of weeks back and I too jumped in the bandwagon. Who does not want baby lips right? So I went ahead and bought myself the balm in shade Coral Flush.

The first time I saw these in Shoppers Stop, honestly I was very disappointed.

1. I was expecting the US packaging of the glass/plastic tube but what Maybelline has launched in India is just like any other twist up lip balm from any other brand. Only the colors and the lettering are the same.

2. I was expecting a lot more color than what they have. On me, coral flush is a very light wash of orange. Definitely more shine than color.

Despite my initial disappointment, I still went ahead and bought one to see if it really lives up to its claims of giving  visibly renewed lips and 6 hr hydration. I was skeptical in the beginning but after wearing this non stop for 5 days now, I'm a fan!. In a nutshell, here's why I think everyone should try one of the Baby lips lip balm:

  • Love the mild fruity fragrance and that it has no synthetic taste
  • They are very moisturising. I swipe them on my lips before retiring for the night and I really wake up to 'baby lips'
  • Very very smooth to apply
  • Weightless and do not feel heavy on the lips
  • Not waxy or thick
  • Have SPF 16
  • Great substitute for lip gloss. Does add shine 
  • Affordable at Rs 150

I only wish these had a bit more color. Unless, I swipe it on 4-5 times, I don't get to see the orange. On very pigmented lips, the color will probably not show up at all.

Here's the swatch:

 I'm loving this lip balm and I'm definitely picking up one more in the shade Cherry Kiss. Have you tried any of these? Which one is your fav?
