The Maybelline Babylips colored lip balm is something that is always in my purse.
Although I do have quite a few lipstick I barely ever use them. There are two main reasons for that.
First: you can’t have dry lips when applying a lipstick. It simply looks awful. And that is a problem I have most of the time. I do try to drink enough water but for some reason, my lips are chapped.
For most women, a lip balm would do the trick: moisturized lips. No matter how many times I tried I didn’t find my lip balm holy grail.
All the lip balms I tried work ok for a short period of time but the effect does not last for too long. I tried oils for my lips but I hated how… oily my lips felt so that did not last long.
Second: My lips are slightly uneven. I am very self-conscious of that when I wear lipstick. This is the reason why it takes me forever to apply the lipstick: it has to look perfect.
Like I said previously: practice makes perfect. I just didn’t practice putting on lipstick :))))) I do love a bold lipstick… on somebody elses lips.
Enter: Maybelline Babylips to the rescue. I love the fact that my lips are hydrated and also somewhat colorful.
Description: It’s clinical care for baby soft lips. Exclusive formula moisturizes and protects lips for a full eight hours. After one week, lips are visibly renewed.

Pros: You want some color on your lips? Not a lipstick fan? Hate the way glosses feel on your lips? This is the product you are looking for.
Cons: If you like lipsticks and all you need is a lip balm.
I heard that there are better-colored lip balms out there but I am happy with this one. I discovered it several years ago and I keep buying it again and again.
In this case, I apply the principle: “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.
In this review, I am referring to the Babylips balms that are colorful. There are one or two in the range that are less color-saturated. I bought only one of those, used 2 times and gave it away. It just wasn’t my cup of tea.
Did you try it? How do you take care of your lips? Do you prefer a lip gloss or a lip balm?
