Simply Lippy Challenge Day 233 | Maybelline Baby Lips Colour Balm Crayon in Shade 030, Creamy Caramel

I first tried one of these Baby Lips balms from Maybelline back in June and absolutely loved it. While the bright pink shade, Strawberry Pop, wasn’t my usual choice, the formula was just lovely and by the end of the day I was completely sold on it.


So, when I was out doing my shopping the other day and saw it came in some other shades, I decided to pop this lovely peach toned nude into my trolley and see if I still liked it as much the second time around. The short answer is yes, yes I did.


These are very much a balm and because of that, I think the most surprising thing for me was how great the pigment is, especially on a very nude shade like this one today. Sometimes with more neutral shades, the pigment can be a little nondescript, but this gave a lovely, light caramel tone to my lips which I really liked.


The texture is super smooth and the formula itself is deliciously creamy – you just feel your lips being moisturised the second you put this on and because of that, it is just so nice to wear.


Its creamy finish means it is very blendable and the thick consistency allows it to give a perfect even distribution of colour, without any dragging or pulling, which again, is a major positive for a balm. 


I am just so impressed with these and after today, am liking them even more. If you’re not big into bold lipsticks, these could be a great option for you because while they feel like a balm, they look very much like a good lippy on.
