So we now have Maybelline Baby Lips in chubby form and called Candy Wow. I have seen them in international blogs, but I really dint expect these to be launched in India. The day I saw them, I made my usual :O face, uttered words “new launch” to Mum and ran to the counter. The one I have is in Cherry. Let’s move onto the review.
Price: 275INR for 2gms.
A Baby Lips first – your favourite lip balm now comes in candy inspired colour and a new retractable crayon format! Hydrate your lips with the help of vitamin E plus get a glossy candy colour at the same time. Vitamin E helps hydrate and glide on smoothly. Sheer pop of colour with a glossy shine and a yummy candy.
My experience with Maybelline Baby Lips Candywow in Cherry :
*Packaging screams adorableness. Chubby Pink retraceable Pencil, Pink cap with chubby white and Pink writings, what’s not to love!! It’s girly, it’s fun, it’s cute, gimmicky and I fell for it proudly. Different flavors have different shades.
* It says Cherry, it smells like cherry and gives a color like cherry, which is a reddish pink.
*Pigmentation wise they are most pigmented than the ones which were launched initially. The Baby lips in Spiced up version which was released in India have the same amount of pigmentation. Initially the tint which came out on lips was okay, like normal pink. But now that I have used it for a week, its smoother the tint is more prominent.
*Texture wise, it’s very smooth, nonsticky, doenot feel waxy like lipbalms. The product glides smoothly on lips giving a sheer glossy tint in the first swipe. 2-3 swipes will be needed by the pigmented lips to have a prominent pink tint. Candywows are gonna get over soon, like yummy candies.
*Performance, 2-4 hours of tint, 5 hours of moisturizing property. It can repair the lips as well.
Cons: Less quantity. It gives a illusion that the product is as long as the Pencil, but it’s not. Its half of what we get in the normal versions at higher rate. See I said, Gimmicky.
For me Maybelline Baby Lips Candy wows are like MAC of lipbalm. I know it’s pricey, less quantity but it’s cute and I want more. I belive it comes in 5 variants. I like the quality too. Just like I read in international blogs At times it feels like I am paying a little extra only for packaging, but still I want more. Pretty sure many of you want it, go get one for yourselves. Gimmicky, in a good way 😉
But if you are on a budget and looking for a good tint with lip balm kind of quality go for Maybelline electro shock in Pink Shock 🙂
What do you think about this? Have you tried canwow?
