Okay so this year’s most oddly shaped beauty product is only weeks away from our shores. Set for a January launch, the Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush has had enthusiastic reviews stateside. They’re really strange little things – very light on colour and very balmy but seem to do a good job on delivering a hint of sheer colour to both lips and cheeks.Maybelline Baby Lips Balm & Blush
There are five shades – Innocent Peach, Flirty Pink, Juicy Rose, Booming Ruby, and Shimmering Bronze; I’d recommend Booming Ruby as it seems to have the most pigment – it’s a red shade but because it’s so sheer gives a pretty flush on cheeks. You will get a sheen on that flush but I like a dewy cheek look so for me it’s fine. If you love matte, avoid using on the cheeks.
I think this swatch shows quite well what kind of sheen you can expect on cheeks. As far as lips go, again, it’s a decent, although very light, tint. They all have a general sweet scent – it’s not horrible but it is a bit like Haribos! Shimmering Bronze maybe isn’t one for the lips – it does have actual glitter chunks (small ones) in it and I don’t know if bronze lips is a thing?!
Anyway, they’re £4.99 a pop and launch nationwide in January.

Oh la la! I just love Baby Lips Balm! I’ve bought several of lipsticks (even from expensive brands) this year, but I always tend to go the same- yep- Baby Lips Balms!
Can’t wait to try these new babies!

They are so beautiful, I’ll have to try this haha
These look so interesting. I love baby lips for everyday running errands and working long shifts to keep your lips hydrated. I seriously cannot wait to try these!!
Whoever designed the packaging for these is a bloody genius. They’re too cute to NOT buy them.
I just didn’t get on with baby lips, so I’m not sure if these would suit me at all. I did love the Baby Skin primer though, so not all the ‘baby’ products were bad for me!x
These look a bit pointless to me- surely you could achieve the same effect with tinted lip balm?
