Review: Maybelline Babylips

So I was at Rite Aid the other day (and by the other day, I mean a good 4 months ago...) and saw pink and blue packaging and was immediately drawn to it. I debated buying this lip balm since I have so many already, but went for it... Damn the cute packaging! !

Maybelline Babylips Lip Balm

Fun packaging! !

I thought that this lip balm would impress me. I had high hopes. I am a big fan of Labello/Nivea and the egg-shaped EOS balms, so I was hoping Maybelline would have mimicked their formulas. Turns out that this formula goes on like the balms I previously mentioned, BUT over time, it actually dries out my lips! I'm sorry, but if a product is suppose to make my lips feel softer for 8+ hours, why are mine dry again within 30 minutes of using it? I continue to use this product, only for the sake of finishing it, but I will not be repurchasing. Bottom line is: if you want to get a good lip balm that goes on slick but moisturizes for a long period of time, go with Labello (in Europe) or Nivea (in the States)! This is one of those products that I fell for because of the hype in the beauty community, and it just didn't do it for me. Have you tried this product yet? Did it work for you? Let me know!
