Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Balls

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Ball is a new hydrating lip balm that resembles the Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush that launched last year. These new chubby little ball shaped balms are reminiscent of the very popular EOS Lip Balm Collection.

Funny as I recall either writing in my review or thinking to myself that Baby Skin Instant Cheek Flush would have made a better lip balm rather than a blush and here we now have Baby Lips Balm Ball launching for Spring 2016.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Ball Collection

Take a look!

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Ball are available in four flavors and shade selections. Each balm is $3.99 and weights in at 0.16 oz in size where as EOS Lip Balm is $2.99 and holds 0.25 oz in size.

I tend to chronically apply and reapply lip balm throughout the day because I have drier lips but also because I kinda suck at reapplying my lipgloss or lipstick once it wears away. I like keep a tinted balm handy to give my lips a little hydration as well as color which is one reason these new Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Balls can come in handy because unlike EOS’s formula these actually have a pretty little tint.

According to the display these are Vitamin E rich balm that provide up to four hours of hydration. They are lightly hydrating with a thin, balmy consistency that wears comfortably on lips. The color pay off is fairly sheer but you can get a nice hint of color from the darker shades. Bit of Cherry was probably my favorite shade as it showed up the best on my pigmented lips and gave them a nice flush of cherry tint. I think they swatch considerably more pigmented than they actually appear on lips. These do have individual flavors based on their shade name. Pretty in Peach has a peach flavor, Bit of Cherry has a cherry flavor, and Pout in Pink kinda had a bubblegum flavor. The flavor is pretty light and subtle but they weren’t to my liking as they really didn’t taste all that great.

The balms apply very smoothly and I’d say the texture was very close to EOS’s formula but a bit thinner and they have a slight sheen finish. I wouldn’t say I got four hours of moisture from them but I wouldn’t say they aren’t hydrating either. The moisture factor is pretty light here so if you have super dry lips they might not be an ideal pick for you if you’re depending on them for long term hydration and moisture retention.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Ball are a cute addition to the Baby Lips family. They aren’t the most moisturizing formula in the lip balm world but they provide a pretty hint of color and light hydration when you’re in a rush and can’t be bothered to reapply your lipstick. Lip balm junkies should love all over these especially those who are a fan of EOS Lip Balms.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Ball are launching now at drugstores and should be available soon at Ulta.com and other locations.

    I rather like the look of these, but at the same time I don’t know if they’re anything special either…

    The Bit Of Cherry Red is the nicest of the bunch. 🙂

    hey isabelle!! i really like your eyes 🙂 i think the peach looks really nice on you if you’re going for natural. i wanted to ask where you got these from? because here in SE Asia ,i haven’t seen these around. Also, would you recommend EOS lip balm or these balm balls for those just getting used to wearing lip balm? would untinted ones like EOS be more versatile because you can wear them under lipstick?
    Thank you!! 🙂
