I love pretty much all Maybelline products, but I have to admit I was a little disappointed by this one. I have one of the Maybelline Baby Lips in the shade Pink Me Up, and when I was at CVS last week, I decided to pick up the shade Quenched, which has SPF 20 and is supposed to be very moisturizing. I figured it never hurt to have extra chapsticks on hand, so I was excited to try it out.
I have to admit this was a letdown. It smells so nice, and it adds a nice shiny quality to the lips without being too overbearing like a gloss sometimes. I really wanted this to work out for me, but it just didn’t. It applied very smoothly, and I liked the light scent to it, but after about a half hour or so, it started going downhill. My lips felt drier and tight, which wasn’t the case before I applied the lip balm. I get pretty dry lips in the winter time, so I thought this would be nice for spring and summer since it has SPF 20. But I don’t see myself using it very often because I felt like it just dried my lips out more than they already were, and I had the urge to just keep applying it to “quench” my lips.
My other Baby Lips balm isn’t that moisturizing either, but I figured that would be the case since it had a tinted color to it. I guess maybe I just had too high of expectations with this since I was expecting a lip balm that would moisturize my lips for hours. This barely made it a half hour on my lips before I was grabbing for a different lip product, let alone a full hour. I’ll definitely try other flavors/shades in the future, but this one was just a fail for me.
