I’ve had a bit of a love/hate relationship with Maybelline lipsticks over the duration of my challenge so far. Some of their products like the Baby Lips colour balm are amazing to use, but others, not so much.
There is a two-step process to this lipstick, first you apply the intense liquid lip colour, then once that’s dried in, you apply the lip balm side over it to seal the colour and moisturise the lips.
I’ll start with the positives first: the big claim of this lipstick is incredible lasting power and I have to admit, it is pretty good. While 24 hours may be a bit of a stretch, it definitely held in place a lot longer than most and kept its colour throughout.
However, it does have some negatives for me, the main one being the lack of pigment. Maybe it’s because the shade is so light, but I had to layer this over and over again to try build any real colour. Not only that, but because it’s a liquid and takes a while to dry, it kept dragging the colour underneath meaning I couldn’t get a full coverage finish at all.
