Today I am going to review Maybelline Lip Balm in Berry Crush Variant. Cherry Kiss and Rose Addict variants were already reviewed on MABH. This particular shade, Berry Crush is my first lip balm from the Baby Lips Range of Maybelline.
Price: Rs 150 for 4g
This Maybelline lip balm comes in a stick form, in a twist up type lip balm tube with a mini cap. I found the packaging easy to use, handy and travel friendly. The name ‘Baby Lips’ is cutely printed on the plastic tube but unfortunately the fonts fade off very quickly.
Berry crush is a beautiful pinkish berry shade. Compared to the few other lip balms in this range, the Berry Crush lip balm is well tinted. The texture is smooth, rich and non-sticky. I feel good about a thing that this lip balm is well moisturizing and at the same time it is not sticky or waxy on the lips. I could find micro shimmers on this lip balm which is meant to add that glossy sheen to the lips however they don’t show up on my lips at all. The fragrance is of course berry-like and sweet.
After applying the lip balm, my lips feel glossy, smooth and moisturized. This berry crush variant adds a natural pink flush to the lips. But if in case you have pigmented lips, this lip balm will not help to cover it. The shade is moderately build-able. It gives a natural, almost bare pink finish with one swipe and a well tinted lips with 2-3 swipes. It stays on my lips for around 2-3 hours and then fades off without leaving much tint behind. My lips stay moisturized for 2 more hours even after the lip balm fades away. On
Overall, it is a good lip balm for the price! Compared to the other affordable lip balms available in Indian market today, Baby Lips work really well in terms of moisturization. Within one month of usage, I could find the difference on my lips. They are comparatively soft, smooth and repaired.
