We're long time fans of Maybelline Baby Lips in this house. Nourishing, moisturizing and with just enough tint to give your lips the healthiest appearance possible. The latest addition to the Baby Lips family is the Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayon ($6.99 // ULTA Beauty) - which is like the OG baby lips... but with major color!
Maybelline Baby Lips Color Balm Crayons are said to provide "12-hour hydration with bold bursts of bright, juicy color".
8 shades are available in:
- 05 Toasted Taupe
- 10 Blush Burst
- 15 Strawberry Pop
- 20 Creamy Coral
- 25 Refreshing Red
- 30 Sassy Scarlet
- 35 Pink Smooch
- 40 Playful Purple
How to Apply. Apply the crayon at the center of your upper lip first and follow along the contours of the mouth. Next glide the crayon along the entire bottom lip. (via the Maybelline website).
Review. I was completely impressed with the color payoff on these. I didn't anticipate them being so bold and it was refreshing to have a nice, even amount of color that still kept my lips looking glossy and hydrated.
The rounded bullet tip will make application a bit difficult if you have thin lips so I recommend using a liner and taking care when you apply. These aren't like the OG Baby Lips where even with the tint you don't need a mirror. Get you a mirror and wear them in all of their incredible, glossy glory.
I found that the shades applied and wore evenly but I didn't get 12-hour hydration. I tend to drink a lot of coffee and water during the day, as well as eat, which removes the product and also the moisture aspect from your lips. The darker shades do leave some staining behind so if you're without a mirror and just wanted to pop an OG Baby Lips shade on top you could totally do that.
My favorite of all of the shades is Blush Burst. It's completely perfect for every day wear and evening smokey eye wear. I really see this being HG material!
