Looking for the perfect lip balm for Valentine’s Day? I recommend trying out Maybelline Babylips! You can find them at most drugstores and at Ulta. I don’t own them all, but I do like the ones I own! Take a look at these swatches and see which one best suites you!
Grape Vine, Personally, I love this one so much! The flavor is okay, but the color is what I love. It is very easy to build up to a darker purple color, or just to have as a light tinted lip balm depending on the occasion. I will definitely repurchase as soon as I run out of it!
Peach Kiss. I have to say that this one is my least favorite out of all the ones I have tried, but I only bought it a month ago so I guess I should give it a fair chance! The color just does not suit my skin color that well, but perhaps once I am tanner in the summer it will work better. The flavor also doesn’t stand out to me too much, just a subtle hint of peach!
Pink Punch. I definitely have a love-hate relationship with this Babylips! I really love the flavor and the color is gorgeous as soon as you apply it! Definitely adds a pop of pink! But I find after a few hours any sheen that was once there is completely gone, and the color also wears off in certain places. Overall, I would recommend trying it out and seeing what you think… and I will be repurchasing it once I am out.
Aren’t the caps adorable?!
Okay so from left to right it is Grape Vine, Pink Punch, and then Peach Kiss each swatched just once. Then, going in the same order, I swatched them multiple times to show how you can make the color bolder.
Here I showed at Grape Vine is definitely more glossy than Pink Punch or Peach Kiss. I have noticed Peach Kiss has a little shimmer in it, so be aware of that before you purchase! It isn’t too much though. And you can see that Pink Punch has a little gloss to it, but not very much. I have found that only putting on coat on, and then putting a gloss on top makes it much more wearable! If you noticed, I didn’t really show the Peppermint flavor, because it is just a clear lip balm. But as you can see, I have already repurchased it because I used up the first one so quickly and loved it!
