I must admit that I’m a Maybeline fan. As far as I can remember, it’s the only Lip Balm that I allow myself to buy two times in a month, or should I say as long as they come up with a new release, I’ll go buy one. The thing about loving this product is the tint it gives. I love my lip balms to have tints so that I could use it alone on a lazy day. Though I must admit there are a lot out there that could surpass such, I still opt for this one because I could have the benefit of two (moisturize and tint) all at the same time in a much reasonable price. As of counting, I owned three. It’s supposed to be four but I broke the other. *sad*
Just from a recent drug store trip that I noticed a newly released Lip Balm or it is? Though it’s under Baby Lips which is usually of a lip balm, what I saw is not the usual packaging but more on like a chubby stick. My curiosity arose when I found out that it’s indeed a Lip Balm but in a stick form? It must be something. So I might have thought that this must be super pigmented. Or at least. I was kinda hoping of a Clinique, Revlon type of a thing. Excuse my sillyness but my thinking was really next to this. Okay, hopes gone wild now. As I swipe through the bar code for the price, ok, Php 179 (roughly $4) My thoughts are now slowly being justified by the price, or so I thought. I was about to give it a go when upon thorough inspection I found out that it’s only 2gms. What? This big then only 2gms? That finally brought me to reality. Unless I dive in and purchase it, then I ‘ll know. So you know who won the battle.
I was with high hopes still about this product not until I read reviews. I find it that it’s not as pigmented as what I expect it to be. Not for a warm skin tone. I compare swatches and kinda feel frustrated. I know it’s just a lip balm but how come they were able to release a more pigmented one before? I wouldn’t argue about the price though if they step this one up. I hope they could reformulate perhaps? Results may vary though according to skin tones. But not all have the same qualm as mine. It’s just from a constant Maybelline Lip Balm user’s point of view who among other Filipina, has a warm skin tone.
On a brighter side, I browse through Maybelline New York’s Instagram and saw this.
I’m not sure if this has been released yet but let me know your thoughts. I just wish they would bring it here in the Philippines.
And come the end of the month, Maybelline Philippines will be releasing this through Beauty MNL.
