Maybelline Babylips | Cherry Me and Pink Punch

Over a week ago I had a big Superdrug haul which included the very hyped up Baby lips by Maybelline. I know I'm really late on the bandwagon but I had been wanting to get my hands on these lip balms for so long! They've been raved about so many times in the blogging community that I just couldn't resist picking them up when I seen them on a buy 1 get 1 half price deal.

There are overall 6 different shades/formations of babylips and I really struggled to choose just 2 but in the end I decided to go for 'Pink Punch' and Cherry Me.

If I'm honest Pink Punch did not impress me as much as Cherry Me did, it does moisturize your lips almost immediately but it doesn't have much of a tint to it on the first application, in fact I think you need to apply it a few times for it to show a bit more color on your lips. Pink Punch smells so lovely, I can't quite figure out what it smells like, almost a bit like bubblegum. Overall, I wasn't very impressed with the pigmentation but you should never expect too much as it's a lip balm.

Oh my, when I first opened Cherry Me I was so amazed by how gorgeous it smelt, oh my god, it has a slightly stronger smell compared to Pink Punch. The pigmentation is so much better than Pink Punch, it gives you a subtle dark red tint to your lips and it's incredibly moisturizing too. You don't need to apply it more than once like Pink Punch. On the first application it glides on so well and gives you a sudden tint to the lips. I was so impressed with this, I take it everywhere with me, I can just pop it in my handbag and use it when I want to top up.

Sorry about the quality of the swatches above, I had terrible lighting and a really rubbish camera which is such a bad combination. As you can see 'Cherry Me' has a darker tint compared to 'Pink Punch'. It's not too dark or pigmented, it's just perfect for me. I needed to apply Pink Punch a few times before it showed the real color but as you can see Pink Punch is a slightly light pink/baby pink color which I absolutely love.

With these lip balms you should never expect too much, it won't have the same pigmentation as other brands or other lip balms but they're perfect if you want a lip balm that prevents dry lips but also gives them a tint of color.

Have you tried the Maybelline Babylips?
