Maybelline Baby Lips Intense Care review

As you could have read in this post, I was very happy to receive my first two Maybelline Baby Lips lip balms. First of all, I really like the cool packaging. The large colorful words on the transparent cap that clashes with the color of the tube makes it a collector's item. I have seen pictures with all kinds of versions of the Maybelline Baby Lips right next to each other and it makes a very pretty sight. Just because of that reason, I might collect all versions. ^_^

Maybelline Baby Lips Intense Care lip balm stick

As you can see, there is quite a large amount of content in one lip balm stick and it will take me a while to finish it (There goes my plan of buying more >_<). Also, the cap closes very well with a pretty click sound (Am I strange for liking that? ^_^)

Maybelline Baby Lips Intense Care

The lip balm has a very subtle lemon candy scent that you can only smell during application and it doesn't linger on the lips. It is also completely tasteless. You don't really see it during the day, but in the evening, the very fine, micro shimmers become a lot more visible. Compared to the Etude House Dear my Jelly Lips-talk JBE101 that I have, which is also similar to a transparent, shimmery lip balm, the Maybelline Baby Lips Intense Care gives off a silvery glow due to the silver micro shimmers, whereas the one from Etude House has a very visible yellow gloss and very fine holographic pink shimmers that makes it look a bit more healthy.

My opinion

I like how the Maybelline Baby Lips Intense Care makes my lips glossy and soft, without being heavy or sticky. The silver glow might not look too good, when I am feeling a bit under the weather, so during those times, I prefer using the Etude House Dear My Jelly Lips-talk JBE101. As I have such good experience with this Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm, I am very curious about the other versions.

Update: I have bought the Maybelline Baby Lips Cherry Me and Hydrate too.
