Simply Lippy Challenge Day 180 | Maybelline Baby Lips Colour Balm Crayon in Shade 015, Strawberry Pop

We all know that feeling; picking up a new lippy while out shopping, excited to open it up and get wearing it. Is there anything better for us lippy lovers? I don’t think so! Therefore, you can only imagine my devastation when I went to try out today’s lippy only to find it completely broken and almost unusable. Nooooo!

Never one to shy away from a challenge however, I reached for a lip brush, and thankfully managed to get more than enough product on it to rock this super bright pink lip.

I don’t need to say again about my love/hate relationship with pink lipsticks; there’s a find line for me and some I just can’t bare. This one however, kind of grew on me and by the end of the day I found myself kind of liking it.

To be honest, I think that’s mainly down to how lovely the formula of this colour balm is. It is thick but creamy, very blendable, and gorgeously moisturising. It has that perfect balance of balm and lipstick feeling like a balm when you wear it, but looking every inch a bold lipstick.

Now, this shade is not for the faint hearted, of you wear it people will comment. And they too will love or hate it! So I did feel a little out of place sitting at my desk with this one on. Having said that, it’s good to be adventurous every once in a while and I loved the fun element that came with wearing it.

I only recently said how much I’ve come to like Maybelline lip products; I’ve yet to try one I don’t like and today’s lippy just confirms once again what nice products this brand makes.

If you’re in the market for a lip crayon that’s like a balm, then I think this might just be one of my favourite lip crayons yet. But, unless you’re not afraid of bold, maybe hold off purchasing until I buy a few more shades and see how they stack up against this bright beauty!
