Maybelline Baby Lips Lip Balm – Energizing Orange
I had this vague impression that Baby Lips were tinted lip balms, but I guess the ones released in the Philippines are different from the ones issued in America. Checking the Maybelline Philippines Facebook page, I found out that all of the local Baby Lips are untinted. Anyway, I didn’t know that when I picked up a tube of Baby Lips in Energizing Orange at a store, but that’s fine, I like the purple and orange packaging, and I’m always glad to have a new lip balm.
Why You’ll Love It

Available in four tempting flavours:
This has a nice orange scent which isn’t overpowering at all. It’s just a little zesty and sweet, and is pleasant enough. It’s quite mild. I thought it might taste a bit like orange as well, but I generally don’t detect much taste to it, aside from a mild chemical taste which I get from time to time. I’m really just quick to notice any off taste in my lip balms, is all.
I like that this has a pretty high level of SPF, for a lip balm. It has SPF 20 which I consider suitable for daily wear in our hot climate. It doesn’t leave a whitish cast or anything, like some balms with SPF might. It’s completely colorless.
This feels good on the dry, slightly chapped lips which I usually have. Instant moisture and relief. The moisturizing effect lasts about two hours on me. Regarding the feel of it, it’s not sticky, or waxy, but it does feel remotely heavy—like, I can feel it on my lips for most of the time I’m wearing it. I don’t find that to be too much of a hassle though.

My favorite thing about this product is its packaging. It reminds me slightly of the Stephen Sprouse (RIP) for Louis Vuitton Graffiti bags. I think it looks cool and cute. Aside from that, while it moisturizes decently and the sun protection is high, there’s really nothing too special about this balm that will make me buy it again.
