These Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal lip balms are the latest launch in the “Baby Lips” range. I have previously reviewed quite a few baby lips and I thought I would be done with them by now, but I couldn’t help myself when I saw this new “Crystal” range. The “Crystal” range mostly includes shades with lots of glitter and sparkles in it compared to the previous Baby Lips collections. The shade I will be reviewing today is the color called “Crystal Kiss.”
My Experience with Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm in Crystal Kiss:
The Maybelline Baby Lips in Crystal Kiss comes in the similar Baby Lips packaging tube. This particular one comes in a light baby pink plastic tube. The cap is transparent with glitters on it, very cute and funky packaging, I love it! The formula of this lipstick is of perfect consistency, not too thin and too thick, not to the extent of being bothersome and greasy. Unlike the other Baby Lips I have tried, some have been too thin consistency and some too thick, but this is just right. It gives just the right amount of shine, more than a regular lip balm would give, but less than a lip gloss. It moisturizes my lips, though it claims to moisturize and improve the condition of lips over time, but I have not noticed anything at all.
The color “Crystal Kiss” is a beautiful baby pink color, but it goes on almost completely clear. It does not have much color too, just a very slight pink tint which mostly goes unnoticed on my lips. You can mainly only see the true shimmers in very bright light or in broad sunlight. Though the color is sheer, it has very fine shimmers in it which make it look super shiny and pretty. This color is perfect for a neutral look with a subtle hint of shimmer, but it also goes perfect on top of a lipstick. It uplifts any lipstick color beautifully. Also, the scent of this lip balm is sort of citrusy and peachy, very pleasant and not too strong.
As far as the staying power, it is nothing out of the ordinary, it does not last very long. To be honest, being a long time user of the Baby Lips lip balms, I did not have any expectations from this product to last me very long since the others didn’t as well. So, I knew what I was getting myself into when I bought this problem, so no biggie. Besides, I do not mind applying this again after an hour or so.
Pros of Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm in Crystal Kiss:
- It is a pretty sheer color with glitters.
- Packaging is nice and cute.
- Has the perfect consistency.
- The scent is also very yummy.
- The color can be worn by itself, but it also looks good on lipstick.
Cons of Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm in Crystal Kiss:
- Staying power is not great.
- Have to reapply every hour or two.
- It claims to improve lip condition, but I have seen no such improvement.
Would I Repurchase Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm in Crystal Kiss?
I would love to try out other shades, but definitely not be repurchasing the same color because I want to give other colors a chance. This a pretty lip balm but if you are looking for a tinted lip balm, then I suggest looking for another color because this one is pretty much clear. Overall, I am glad I have added this lip balm to my collection because it definitely is a much improved version of the previous baby lips. I also bought another shade in the “Crystal” collection and I will review it soon.
