If you have dry, chapped lips, you know how it feels without a hydrating lip balm in the winter. That is why I keep stocking up lip balms and chapsticks throughout the year, and I already have tons of them in my vanity. But when I saw these tinted lip balms launched by my favorite brand Maybelline New York, I got super excited and picked two variants immediately. The girly and attractive packaging attracted me a lot, and the piece was also quite decent, making me purchase them without a second thought. Here, I’ll be reviewing the product Maybelline Baby Lips (Pink Lolita). Let’s start.

Maybelline New York Baby Lips Loves Color range comes in 4 super-saturated tinted shades.- ‘Berry Crush’, ‘Rose Addict’, ‘Pink Lolita’, and ‘Cherry Kiss’.
The complete list of ingredients is not provided on the product’s packaging. However, it claims to be a formula with vitamin E and jojoba oil that helps shed away rough, dry cells from the lips’ surface to keep them smooth, supple and cushioned all day long.
Maybelline New York Baby Lips Loves Color (Pink Lolita) lip balm comes in an attractive pick packaging that is cute and girly. It is a small tube packaging (like the regular lipstick packaging), which perfectly fits my jeans’ pockets and can be carried easily. All you need to do is twist the base of the tube and apply. I like tube lip balms more than the tub ones as they are hygienic and can be used without using fingers. However, an opaque tube does not allow us to see how much product remains inside.
Look And Feel
The lip balm is pink in color, and its texture is silky smooth. It glides effortlessly over the lips and makes them feel hydrated and super moisturized. The lip balm has a mild fruity fragrance, and I love it a lot. However, the scent is not long-lasting, and it vanishes after 15 minutes of application.

My Take On Maybelline Baby Lips (Pink Lolita)
I have dry, chapped lips, and the condition worsens during the winter as they get ruined up because of the dry weather. So, I stock up many lip balms and prefer the tinted ones as my lips are pigmented. This Maybelline Baby Lips Pink Lolita is certainly a wintertime keeper for me as it has healed my lips entirely with regular usage. Now my lips look soft and moisturized. However, you need to apply it regularly for this.
The color payoff of this tinted lip balm is good, and 2-3 swipes give a nice tint. But if you have highly pigmented lips like mine, you may need 4-5 swipes to make the stain visible. The pink shade, however, looks very sweet and completely natural. It also gives a subtle shine to my lips.
The lip balm stays for 3-3.5 hours on my lips, which is quite good. But the 16-hour claim is not valid anyway. As I have pigmented lips, I always look for lip products that have SPF included in them, and thankfully this lip balm fulfilled my need. It contains SPF 16, which keeps my lips protected from the harmful rays of the sun. I love this range of lip balm from Maybelline New York, and I’m going to purchase other variants soon.
How To Use
Turn the base 1-2 times for usage. Reapply when lips are exposed to intense sun, wind, or cold for maximum protection. First, apply the lip balm to the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth. Then, glide the lip balm across the entire bottom lip.
