Product Review: Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm- Peach Kiss

When Maybelline released their new line of Baby Lips Lip Balms, I knew I had to try one for myself. When I saw the selection of Baby Lips lip balms at my local Rite Aid, I spotted a nice mix of clear and tinted ones. I initially was going to go for one of the no-color, clear ones, but I do love a little color on my lips. In the end, I decided to go with the Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm in Peach Kiss ($3.79).

Maybelline Baby Lips Moisturizing Lip Balm in Peach Kiss

Peach kiss is a neutral peachy beige color that contains small, golden shimmers. To be quite honest, I did not notice that this lip balm had any shimmers when I saw it in the store. It wasn't until I got home and took a closer look at the product that I noticed. That was an interesting surprise.

When I apply this lip balm, it goes on smoothly and evenly. The shimmers don't appear overbearing on the lips. My lips are left with a healthy-looking shine. As for the tint, I don't notice much color on my lips. If at all, maybe a very light hint of beige. Maybe this is because my lips are very pigmented.

Peach Kiss has a fruit-like scent. I am not sure, but I think it may actually be a peach-scent. Once applied to my lips, the scent lessens and I can't hardly smell it anymore. Scents don't really bother me much, so this is not a huge deal breaker for me.

I am very particular when it comes to lip balms. I love when lip balms contain an SPF. Just as we do our face and body, its important that we protect our lips as well from the sun. This lip balm contains an SPF of 20 which is great! As far as lasting power goes, its not until 2-3 hours later, that I feel the need to reapply.

I think the packaging of the balm is adorable. Some may not be fans of the plastic, colorful, girly packaging, but I think its fun. Its probably because I am a sucker for bright colors when it comes to packaging. It gets me every time. Also, I appreciate that the balm twists all the way down, which helps eliminate the risk of the balm getting scraped and nicked by the top.


Although I like how this lip balm appears on my lips, I don't think I will repurchase this particular shade again. My lips are really dry and I don't feel like this lip balm is enough to help moisturize them. I stick to using this lip balm when my lips are less dry, and flake-free. If I apply this lip balm to my lips when they are dry, the flakes peek through and get accentuated. In the future I will probably pick up one of the clear baby lips lip balms. Maybe those will be a bit more moisturizing?
