As you know the Maybelline Baby Lips Collection has been extended with five new limited edition shades for Spring. I recently reviewed Coral Crush for you and as a special favor to a reader I picked up Melon Mania as she wanted to see swatches of the shade.
Let’s take a look!
I gotta admit I’ve never caught on to the craze for Baby Lips. They are a basic tinted lip balm and I can think of any number of balms that I’d rather use and own in comparison. I totally know they are cheap but they still aren’t a fav of mine.
Melon Mania just like Coral Crush is a very sheer balm. If you have paler lips you’re in luck as you might see some tint from it however, I have pigmented lips so it only adds a sheen to them versus any tint. This has a fruity citrus flavor (I wish it lasted like melon) which isn’t overpowering and quite pleasant.
This is less glossy than Coral Crush so it feels a little heavier on my lips and balm-y in texture. The balms are nice enough but I don’t think they provide eight hours of hydration as advertised.
Melon Mania is a really nice shade of popping pink, kinda neon-like. It’ll look cute on paler lips but unfortunately I don’t see that shade on my own lips.
As I said in prior reviews it really isn’t necessary to haul all these different shades as most look the same. If you want a cheaper, inexpensive lip balm I’d go with Soft Lips or something similiar. For tinted balm I’d think the plunge and go with one of Clinique’s new Chubby Pencils. I dunno Baby Lips just don’t do it for me!
These are just very basic and uneventful to me.
Not so much?
