Maybelline Babylips Lip Balm Review

Hey everyone! Today I have a review of the Babylips lip balms by Maybelline to share with you all! I have most of the colors they came out with in the last year to review for you, but I couldn't find their new collection of brightly colored ones anywhere :( (the ones in the black packaging). I really wish I could get my hands on those! I also don't have Quenched (the blue and pink one), because I finished it.

Peppermint, Melon Mania, Twinkle, Grape Vine, Peach Kiss, Pink Punch, Yummy Plummy, Pink  Wink and Cherry Me

Color payoff : It varies greatly from one color to another. While some are completely sheer (Peppermint, Twinkle and Quenched), some which are colored only offer a very subtle tint (Twinkle, Melon Mania, Yummy Plummy and Peach Kiss). The most saturated in color are Cherry Me, Grape Vine, Pink Wink and Pink Punch.

Texture, Application and Wear : These apply very smoothly to the lips. They're more of a slippery balm, which not everyone likes, but I prefer. They are quite hydrating and help soften the lips. They hold for quite a long time for me, but I do need to reapply every 1 to 2 hours.

Finish : They look quite glossy on the lips.

Packaging : Very cute, definitely doesn't look expensive or anything, but I like all the bright colors.

Price : 3.99$ each

Scent : I love the scent of the majority of the Babylips lip balms. They are unflavored though, which is kind of a bummer since some of these smell so good I wouldn't mind it tasting like that wonderful smell. Here is what I think each of the Babylips that I own smell like :

Peppermint : smells like mint. It kind of tickles on the lips. It's the only Babylips that does that to my knowledge.

Melon Mania : Even though it's called Melon Mania, this one smells just like Swedish Berries to me. I adore this one.

Twinkle : I can't exactly pin point what this one smells like, it smells fruity, that's all I can tell. Maybe some sort of berry? Raspberries maybe?

Grape Vine : Like the name says, this one smells like grapes.

Peach Kiss : Smells like peaches.

Pink Punch : I find that this one smells like strawberry lemonade. Also one of my favorite scents by Babylips.

Yummy Plummy : The smell of this one is quite faint in comparison to other Babylips. I'm not sure what it smells like, but it kind of smells like Cherry Dr. Pepper to me, but I might be completly wrong, ahah :P

Pink Wink : I'm not too fond of the smell of this one. It's kind of sickly sweet. I guess it smells like Bubble Gum, which I'm not a fan of.

Cherry Me : This one smells like cherry gummy candies.

Overall : As you can see, I have almost bought all of them, which kind of tells you how much I like these. They're exactly what I'm looking for in terms of a lip balm. I have a preference for glossy looking, very slick feeling lip balms, which is exactly what these offer. I also love the tinted ones. My favorite ones at the moment are Cherry Me, Grape Vine, Twinkle and Melon Mania. Another bonus of the Babylips lip balms is that all the balms from the regular line have SPF 20 in them which I think is fantastic. 10/10
