Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm

Happy Boxing Day everyone!

I myself am about to head out to Future Shop to pick up an ASUS Eee Pad Transformer so I'm hoping it won't be too crazy and that there will still be some left! I'm actually just about to get on a plane, but I figured a quick review couldn't hurt, right? 

One of the things I'd asked for was the new Baby Lips lip balm from Maybelline because I'd heard some good things about the line and it looked like a lip balm that would be fairly hydrating. It has an SPF of 20 and boasts "8hr hydration and lip renewal". I received one in Peppermint which is one of the two in the line that is clear and does not have a tint. It comes in a cute, chubby barrel and has graffiti-style writing on the cap. The other lip balms come in equally fun packaging colours which makes finding it in my purse a lot easier!

As I'd hoped, Baby Lips goes on very smoothly, smells refreshing and hydrates...but not for 8 hours...I don't live in a particularly dry climate, but I definitely had to reapply after 2 -3 hours. I hadn't had a meal either and was just doing some cleaning up around the apartment. Maybe I'm too picky on what "hydration" actually means because if it means that my lips aren't chapped and flaky then sure, this stuff probably DOES last 8 hours! I guess I'm one of those people that likes to actually feel some lip balm on my lips. I'm so used to having something on them, that when my lip balm starts to wear off it really bothers me and I reapply right away. Overall, still a product I'd use, I'd love to try the other lip balms with the tints in the future and for now it's in my purse on its way to Montreal as we speak!
