The Lip Balm Trials : Maybelline Baby Lips
How cute are the packaging for these lip balms?!
Don't they remind you of the Stephen Sprouse Graffiti Louis Vuitton Prints?
Well I had found these on sale at Rite Aid and with my couponing skills I managed to snag these up for about .50 each. =D I've seen them around the blogosphere for a while now and was curious to see how they were.
And let me just say that these lip balms are delightful and that I really enjoy them. There's nothing negative I would say about this product. I currently use the peach kiss version and I almost cried when I thought I lost it. lol. The peach kiss has tiny shimmers in it that can be seen if you apply constantly (like I do). The peachy color does come off a bit frosty on the lips but does melt down becoming practically invisible. I believe the only other flavor I bought that has a bit of color is pink punch, which gives off a slight pink color.
It's not the most moisturizing formula, nor the most long lasting either. But it does the job when you need it.

They have an SPF of 20 and proclaim they give 8 hours moisture. But I experienced it to be more like 2 hours. But mind you, my lips are sensitive.
The lip balms are packaged like a lipstick bullet. But I believe Maybelline has repackaged them to look like regular lip balms (ie chapstick, burts bees). I have to say that I prefer this packaging.
If you haven't tried these yet and you're looking for a lip balm I am totally recommending them. The retail price is $3.50 which is kind of steep for drugstore lip balm but partnered with a deal and a coupon they could go as low as free.
