So, I went on a shopping spree a few days ago and finally lay my hands on the Maybelline baby lips candy wow. The Maybelline baby lips candy wow is the newest entrant in Maybelline baby lips lip balm range. The product comes in 5 variants, viz., Raspberry, Peach, Orange, Mixed Berry and Cherry.
Product claims: With every application, your lips are reborn and feel supple, plump, moisturized, giving you intense care with the fun and sweetness of a candy. Baby Lips Candy WOW comes in a new retractable crayon format with delicious flavours. The chubby stick is enriched with Vitamin E that helps keep your lips hydrated for long and keep them protected even in harsh winters. The crayon format makes it easy to apply and glides on smoothly. Everyone will go WOW with this pop of colour, glossy shine, yummy candy flavour and the tinge of style.
I got myself Raspberry from the variants because it had a nice dark pink tint and anything with Raspberry attracts me. Speaking of the other variants, Peach has little to no pigmentation, Cherry and Raspberry are the most pigmented, Mixed Berry has slight pinky-purpleish sort of pigmentation and Orange has a coral-orangish sort of pigmentation.
Coming back to the review of the Maybelline baby lips candy wow in Raspberry. The product is packaged in a cylindrical tube which is really cute and handy. The cap of the product is sturdy so you can carry it in your handbag easily. The product smells just like Raspberry. I wish i could just eat this lip balm because it smells so beautiful. The list of ingredients is mentioned in really small letters on the outer plastic packaging which makes it unreadable. I better grab a magnifying glass to read this.
The product is priced at Rs. 275 and the amount of product you get is 2 gms. The only con of the product i can find is the amount it offers at this price. If you see any other product in the baby lips range, they are much cheaper and provide 4 gms of product. (Damn you and your marketing strategy Maybelline!)
But this product beats every other Maybelline baby lips product due to its pros. The product surely makes your lips soft and supple with a nice tint which you can choose according to what suits you. The other baby lips variants feel a bit waxy after application but this product is neither waxy nor too glossy. The staying power is a good 3-4 hours which is amazing when it comes to a lip balm after which you need to reapply.
If you are a college/school going girl who needs a tinted lip balm for your everyday use, this will become your holy grail product as it provides the perfect pigmentation and moisture for your lips without feeling too waxy or glossy. Being a lover of matte lipsticks more than any other lip product, this lip balm surely impressed me since the pigmentation is so good that i can go out with just the lip balm on.
Pros of Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Raspberry:
- The moisture and pigmentation it provides
- Not waxy, sticky or glossy.
- You can choose from a variety of beautiful shades.
- Staying power is amazing.
Cons of Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Raspberry:
- The quantity offered at the price.
Verdict : A +
Price : Rs.275 / 2 gms
Recommendation : The product gives you the perfect hint of colour and moisturizes well. I would surely recommend the product and would repurchase as soon as i finish this tube. So, lay your hands on the product as soon as you can, it is worth every penny.
