My Experience with Maybelline Lip Smooth Color and Care Refreshing Tinted Lip Balm – Cranberry Jam:
I had picked it up from Shopper’s Stop around the time of my cousin’s marriage. Unfortunately for me, it got misplaced somewhere even before I could use it. That was around 4 months ago. About a week back, my mother had to go out of town for a seminar. So, she was cleaning the suitcase which we had taken with us to the wedding and from its outer panel this one dropped out. I was shocked to pleasantly surprised to happy! From that day, I have been using this daily and loving it. It has become a staple in my bag now. Let me tell you why I like it so much.
First of all, its color, what a lovely shade! Then comes the yummy, fruity smell. Also, it is absolutely tasteless, something that I like my lip products to be. Its biggest advantage, according to me, is that it comes with SPF-15, something that my other favourite lip balms from The Body Shop and Nivea lack.
It has a lovely pink tint, I was surprised to note that it shows up on my pigmented lips. It doesn’t cover the pigmentation (not that I was not expecting it to), but it gives a beautiful pink tint to the lips. It is fairly moisturising. It lives up to its claims of giving subtle, shiny tint to the lips and also to make them soft and smooth. It is a bit sticky, something that I do not like. The staying power is pretty okay for a lip balm. It is glossy, but I find Nivea Pomegranate Lip Balm to be more glossy than this. It is pretty good for daily use.
A funny thing that I noticed while typing out the ingredients was that there was no mention about Cranberry! On the contrary, it contains extracts of blueberry.
Anyway, let me sum up the pros and cons of the product for you:

The same thing happened with my cousin. She had the strawberry one, she was trying to show me the total content of the balm when the same tragedy happened with her. Poor thing flushed it in the toilet, it was almost brand new.
