So I went to the Maybelline counter at Shoppers Stop yesterday and tried out the testers for the Maybelline New York Baby Lips - will share the swatches here soon.
The swatches I tried out are:
In the tube, the pink stick looked pink, the rose stick looked red, the berry stick looked dark red and the coral stick looked orangey. Pretty colours, right?
Wrong!!! When I tried out the swatches, every single shade was completely sheer, with the barest of bare tint of colour, that went out in just a few minutes! The only thing left on the lips was a sheer glossy look, devoid of any colour, just naked lips with a shine...thats all!
The reason I was so looking forward to these was because I was under the impression that these would finally be lip balms that come with a tint or colour, but sadly, that's not so. So if I have to pay INR 150 for these, I would rather stick to my Avon Naturals Lip Balm, that come in better flavours and fragrance and are much much more effective at INR 99!
I don't like simple shiney lips, I don't like a shiney shiney feel and look and would much rather have some colour on my lips. So for me, these lip balms are not worth spending my money on.....
