Maybelline has introduced a line of Baby Lips Electro Lip Balms in several new neon shades. Baby Lips Electro Lip Balms are just a little more daring than the normal range of colors and kinda a fun addition for Summer. I mean seriously, I can get on board with rocking neon 80’s shades of lips balms.
Take a peek!
Oh! Orange, Strike a Rose, Berry Bomb
Fierce n Tangy and Sheer Minty
I’ll be the first one to admit Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm aren’t really my favorite lip balm product in the world. OMG don’t kill me. Sorry about that but they really aren’t. I mean I think they get a little too much hype and are a slightly overrated tinted lip balm…!
These have a balmy texture with a nicely hydrating feel but I prefer something a little slicker to be honest. I just feel they are a tad too heavy for me at times. When worn at night, in my bed, I’m cool with this type of balm. But during the day for quickie touch ups, etc…Mmmm I’d like something a little lighter.
According to studies these produce smoother, less dry, better looking lips…for me I feel like they are moisturizing with a nice tint of color but nothing too incredibly dramatic with the formula here. It’s a balm, there’s not a lot to say about lip balm sometimes…!
On the upside the Electro Collection has some really nice tinted shades that are considerably more tinted than the originals. One thing I noticed was these didn’t contain an SPF as the original does so that’s something to take note of.
There are six shades to choose from five of which I swatched in this post. Two shades, Fierce n Tangy (neon yellow) and Minty Sheer (neon lime green) apply sheer without any real color where as the other three I tried do lend a very nice neon tint to lips. The colors are vibrant, fun, and wearable. I know they seem quite loud and outrageous but they apply rather naturally!
Strike a Rose
Each balm has a different flavor as well. Nothing plastic or artificial here, the subtle flavors seemed quite on target and pleasant to my taste buds.
Fierce n Tangy has a lemony citrus candy flavor, Minty Sheer (obviously) taste like a mint, Oh! Orange is a tasty sweet orange, Berry Bomb is a grape berryish flavor, and Strike a Rose has a sweet rosy candy flavor.
I’m unsure if these are permanent or limited edition. The displays do not say anything about the line being LE but I suspect they might be? Don’t quote me there.
Overall, Maybelline Electric Baby Lips have the opportunity to be a boring repetitive release but actually turned into a rather fun purchase for me. I think they make a nice budget pick up when you need a quickie beauty fix and don’t want to spend a ton of cash. They have considerably better pay off than the original formula and the colors are vibrant and super funky for Summer wear!
I gotta say Maybelline did a fab job with these and kept my interest here. Even though the original formula failed to please me I felt like Electric improved on this and made the product into something more interesting!
Pick a shade or two up! These are just full of beauty fun!
