Maybelline introduced the medicated version of my favorite baby lips which are supposed to not only nourish but soothe & repair the lips. And to make them more interesting , they are given little tint/sheen which are available in 6 shades. I have three shades with me today : Too Cool, Coral Crave & Pink Me Up which I picked up as a Christmas gift set.
These lip balms comes in a simple yet attractive white twist up tubes with clear cap. Shade name is mentioned on the cap but as these are tinted it’s not much difficult to pick out the shades. They have strong menthol scent to them which can be overwhelming for some as it lingers for long.The fragrance reminds of Halls sore throat tablets in a way. On application one can feel this strong minty cool sensation which is suppose to soothe the lips but its little intense for me. People with very sensitive lips might feel like lips burning especially if they are pretty good condition. As far as tint is concerned, none shows up on my lips. They are mildly tinted and would be tricky to pick up the tint unless you don’t have pigmented lips.
Formulawise, they have good balmy texture albeit restoring that sleekness & sheen. Glides smoothly on lips without feeling heavy. Though these hydrate well(though not upto 12 hours as claimed) , I am not a big fan of heavy scent & strong cooling sensation which might make sense if you have sore or chapped lips. Also the tint doesn’t show up well on me. The original formula have SPF to it which is missing here. I would prefer the original formula anyday over these. The only way I love to use these is to top up on a matte formula when required during the day.
TOO COOL: is a clear tint which just adds glossy shine to lips.
CORAL CRAVE: is a mid toned Coral
PINK ME UP: is a bright bubblegum pink shade
Overall, these didn’t impress me much. Especially when I cant take advantage of that tint along with that uncomfortable sensation on lips.
