Maybelline Baby Lips Color Changing Lip Balm | Glow Balm in My Pink

 

Maybelline Baby Lips Color Changing Lip Balm has struck many in awe. And I am no exception. The recent launch – Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Balm was the latest addition to color changing lip colors category.

Just slide on this Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Balm on the pucker and it adjusts the color based on your body pH level – expect a soft hue of pink to the bright pink (varies based on the skin tone too).

Brands like Lipstick Queen and MAC may have got us excited with the color changing products but Maybelline is the one that has won the hearts with the drugstore option!

Here’s what Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Balm claims –

Get the glow! Hydrating pH pigments adapt to your personal lip chemistry to reveal a pink glow that’s all your own

 

  • pH color transforming lip balm
  • Reveals your ideal, custom shade of pink
  • Hydrates for four hours

 

Price – 3.99$

Buy – Walgreens

What I Love –

  1. It instantly nourishes the lips and makes them soft and supple
  2. It applies as lip balm and slowly catches on the color
  3. It adjusts the color according to the pH level
  4. It gives out a faint glow which makes even the driest of lips look naturally healthy
  5. It leaves behind a faint tint of pink on lips that last for hours
  6. It comes in a super cute packing
  7. It has faint scent of vanilla

 

What I do not Love –

  1. None at the moment (other than not available in India yet)

 

On a side note, if you have heavily pigmented lips; then this is not for you. Maybelline Baby Lips Glow Balm in My Pink helps to get that natural pink pucker. This might hardly show any difference if you have pigmented lips.

 

That said, if you have been obsessed with color changing lipsticks and lip balms (remember the 90’s best selling lip colors?), then this will surely please you. Otherwise too, I think Maybelline has done a fabulous job of coming up with a drugstore product in the color changing technology. Beauty Junkies like me are totally gaga over this and am pretty sure you will love it. So go get your hands on this one already!

 

 

Have you tried the new Maybelline BabyLips Glow Balm yet?

Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint Collection has 8 fabulous colors and today I have two to show you – Stripped Down and Violet Rebel.

 

By the first look of it, if you haven’t guessed, these are high gloss lip colors (if that makes any sense) and pack a punch of color! The formula is so intense, that you need a tiny drop of the color to fill the lips. And for a change, these come in a tube style with the cushion on the tip which I think is pretty fancy!

 

Claims –

Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint delivers shocking color and shine.

 

Benefits –

It amps up the intensity with 8x more pigment in every drop and the vibrant lip paint glides on to deliver a jolt of intense color.

 

How to use/apply –

Apply the flocked tip precision applicator to the center of your upper lip and follow the contours of your mouth. Glide across the entire bottom lip.

 

Here are the 8 shades from the Maybelline Lip Studio Color Jolt Intense Lip Paint Collection –

What I love –

  1. Its packaging is fancy
  2. It has a vanilla fruity scent
  3. It keeps the lips soft and hydrated
  4. It doesn’t settle in fine lines
  5. Its texture is luxurious
  6. Its finish is flawless
  7. A tiny amount of product is enough to fill the lips

 

What I don’t Love –

  1. It smudges easily
  2. It needs a lip liner
  3. It needs a lip brush to apply
  4. Its cushion tip absorbs a lot of product (if not being careful)

 

As much as I loved the fancy packaging and all, the cushion tip is a bummer for me! First time I ended up squeezing a lot of product than required and in no time saw that the tip has absorbed. If not careful, the product can end pretty fast!

And since it, an intense gloss (and with summer just around the corner) using a matching or a slightly darker lip liner seems to give better results. And if you don’t want product wastage, using a lip brush to fill in the lips seems to do the trick.

 

However, using the cushion tip definitely gives a flawless application. It also means the right amount of product is applied on lips and rest is back on cushion tip!

And like always using a lip liner helps. It not only protects the gloss from smudging, it also gives the précised application too.

 

Unfortunately, just like any other gloss, it smudges. But here’s the trick!

 

Dab a tissue over the lips to turn this intense gloss into semi-matte!

(Using fingertips also seems to give similar effect)

 

 

And like always, I tried mixing these two colors and got a beautiful lavender blush pink color. Here’s how it looks –

As much as I complain about smudging, these colors have an amazing formula and finish. Wish these were convenient to buy!

 

What do you think of this collection? Would you give this a try?

Maybelline BB Cushion

Maybelline BB Cushion is my latest purchase at the moment. Though I have been toying with the idea of using a cushion for as long as I can remember, I wasn’t sure of the shade since the brands I was looking in for were all Korean. So when Maybelline came up with the BB Cushion I simply had to try.

 

Maybelline BB Cushion

Claims –

Maybelline BB Cushion gives enhanced coverage. It comes with 60% moisture essence and SPF 29 to keep the skin moisturized and sun protected. Its compact format allows achieving the perfect flawless look anytime, anywhere and every day.

Maybelline BB Cushion Review

What I Love –

  1. It spreads evenly
  2. It makes the skin look fresh and glowing
  3. It comes with SPF 29 and PA++ to keep the skin sun protected
  4. It conceals the spots to give a clear looking skin
  5. It is perfect for daily use
  6. It comes in a lovely packaging

 

What I don’t Love –

  1. It only comes in 2 shades – Light and Natural
  2. It doesn’t suit warm skin tones at all

 

 

Plus, if you are used to beauty blenders like me, you would find using this applicator sponge pretty uncomfortable. Of course, that’s the case with most of the cushions, they all come in similar packing with similar sponge applicator!

Luckily, using a beauty blender with this cushion gives the flawless application which I absolutely love!

That aside, if there’s one thing I disliked about this Maybelline BB Cushion is the shades available. I have taken the Natural shade and yet, it stands out so much on my skin (I am a warm skin tone) that I had to tone it down with my MAC Compact. Luckily, the trick worked and the final result is pretty good!

But if you are trying to set this to your skin tone using a translucent compact or powder, be prepared to be hugely disappointed. It sort of gives a whitish cast on the skin.

Rest assured, a flawless whitish cast, though. This suits Cool Skin tones and fair skin tones perfectly!

 

But, if you have a MAC Compact handy (tinted and not the translucent one) that matches with your skin tone; this Maybelline BB Cushion gives a flawless base to work on!

Maybelline Nail Polish Buried Treasure

Maybelline Nail Polish Buried Treasure

Maybelline Nail Polish Buried Treasure

Maybelline Nail Polishes made into my stash quite a lot and until recently I didn’t realize I stocked up so many of these Maybelline Polishes.

While all of their Nail Polish Collections are good, I particularly love their ColorShow Collection. These are worth every rupee spent and make a wonderful change when I am in the mood for a quick and yet simple mani.

One of the best things about this Maybelline Nail Polishes is that they offer a variety of colors plus they are quite inexpensive.

I also tend to wait for the Sale time, when I can stock up on as many shades as I can.

Today am showing you one such polish which I happened to buy like ages ago and never tried until recently.

What I Love –

  1. Packaging is simple and cute
  2. Its brush design complements the formula with precise lacquer application
  3. The brush is conveniently wide enough to cover the nail in 2-3 strokes
  4. The Formula is flawless; it’s crème gloss finish and applies super easy
  5. In 1-2 coats, this polish gives a flawless opaque finish
  6. Long lasting and less expensive when compared to other higher end brands which claim similar formula and longevity
  7. Colors from this collection are amazing
  8. Chip-resistant and doesn’t need a top coat at all

 

Price – 100 ₹

Buy – Nykaa

 

As much as I liked this Maybelline Nail Polish Buried Treasure, there is one thing am unsure about this shade. The more coats you tend to apply the more golden hue is observed. It might not suit all skin tones and might look washed off on many. Also, it tends to look dull after a day or two.

 

On the other hand, this might look fabulous when applied over similar base color. This can tone down the golden hue and also may not look as washed off as before.

Maybelline ColorShow Nail Polish Porcelain Party was one of the best whites I have tried so far! I have been rather too picky with whites lately, trying to find that pure white shade forever now, until I came across this one from Maybelline.

Maybelline ColorShow Nail Polish Porcelain Party

Maybelline Nail Polishes are always my go-to polishes when I look for something fresh and pretty without fussing over the shades from new collections. Best part, they have almost all the colors in their collection.

 

Here are the swatches of the Maybelline ColorShow Nail Polish Porcelain Party

Picking the right shade of white nail polish is harder than it looks. I prefer the one that is pure white, opaque, easy to apply, and in crème gloss finish which fortunately Porcelain Party has all.

Any light color including white tends to make the skin tone look darker and more tanned which is why getting that perfect polish makes it all the more a necessary step.

Besides, as much as white is a perfect winter color, it also makes a great summer color. And now that the weather is picking up, it’s a perfect time to wear white more than before!

However, the only thing I dislike about Porcelain Party or for that matter white nail polishes, in general, is that they tend to be streaky. But with good 2-3 coats of nail polish, Porcelain Party gives a perfect opaque finish.

That said, am glad I found a white shade that I love to wear. It’s been one hell of a trial and toss journey to find this shade.

On a brighter side, I knew Maybelline had one white shade in their ColorShow Collection but I somehow tried white from every other brand before this. How crazy was that!

 

So if you are looking for that perfect white, then this is your polish!

Maybelline Newyork Firewood Brown from Bright Sparks Collection

Maybelline Newyork Firewood Brown from Bright Sparks Collection

Maybelline NewYork Firewood Brown is an all time favorite of mine. While I love bright and pastel colors for my nails for all Spring/Summer but with season change I often turn to colors like browns, taupes, and greys. And now that the winds and clouds have taken a turn and we might experience super cold climate for a little more longer, I thought this shade would be just perfect to show you.

Firewood Brown is from the Maybelline Newyork Bright Sparks Collection which was launched a while ago. While others are uber bright, this one shade from the collection seems just perfect for the colder months.
Here are the swatches –
Maybelline Newyork Firewood Brown
Maybelline Newyork Firewood Brown
I personally love this color way too much. It is a beautiful neutral shade that can never go out of the trend plus it is not very expensive.
Besides, it’s crème gloss formula dries quickly and the color doesn’t fade or chip soon. It is also not streaky and just needs a coat or two to get the opaque finish.

This shade is a perfect wood brown color and suits most of the Indian skin tones. And if you love to change colors for the Colder months, just like me, this is the one you shouldn’t miss trying.

Price – 85 ₹ (64 ₹ on Nykaa, 100 ₹ + delivery charges on Flipkart)
Buy – Nykaa, Flipkart
Now that I have got myself a brown shade, am off hunting for some greys and taupes. This reminds me am sure I have those colors in my stash already and I just hope I find them in time before the season passes. Lol

Maybelline Babylips Candy Wow in Peach and Mixed Berry

Beauty

Maybelline babylips candy wow

Maybelline Babylips Candy Wow is the last winter launch from Maybelline India. It is another spectacular product launch from the brand and Maybelline BabyLips Candy Wow Collection is totally breathtaking! The colors and the packing left me in awe and I simply can’t get enough of this already. They once again hit the spot and came up with the undying trend of chubby sticks or lip crayon style packaging which makes these so irresistible. Not that there aren’t many of these sorts in the market but somehow these totally stood out with the bright colors and the chubby stick style look. Besides, these look cuter than the others. Like seriously!

Here are the pics –

What I Love –
  • Hydrating Formula
  • Sheer Tints
  • Candy color packing
  • Enriched with Vit E
  • Moisturizes lips well and leaves a faint tint behind
It’s perfect time again to take out these to play with since it is almost winter. The formula is more hydrating and moisturizing than their usual Baby Lips balms and also the tint is pretty good too which makes these the perfect ones to have around during this time. That said, their packing still takes the front seat and beats everything out. Just for these cutesy looking ones I personally don’t mind buying them all.

Think of how cute the pictures would turn out with this somewhere in back ground of the pictures! Lol…
On a side note, this is definitely a keeper!
While Peach shade washed me out, my favorite at the moment is Mixed Berry.
Currently available in 4 shades – Raspberry, Mixed Berry, Peach, Orange (didn’t find the 5th one in any counters yet)
Price – 275 INR
Available – All Maybelline Counters (at the moment) and Flipkart
Beauty Hack: Slice of the crayon tip lightly to get the tint color much stronger
While I was at the counter, I realized that their testers had the blunt tips and the color payoff was pretty damn good. So I tried at home and it works. So there you go. Yes, you are Welcome!

Maybelline Fit Me! Set + Smooth Powder

  1. Fit Me! Matte + Poreless Liquid Foundation
  2. Fit Me! Pressed Powder
  3. Fit Me! Concealer
  4. Fit Me! Blush

Claims :

Flawless. Beautiful. Fresh. With Fit Me! powder foundation you can make visible pores and shine disappear while still getting perfect buildable coverage.
Here’s why you’ll love it:

  • It has a smooth finish and glides on your skin easily

Fit me
Here’s why I love it :
  • Compact and perfect for travel
  • Comes with a mirror and a powder puff
  • Handbag friendly
  • Puff has seperate compartment and is not in contact with the powder all the time
  • Keeps the puff as well as powder hygienic
  • Finely milled powder
  • Light coverage
  • Powder has faint shimmer

Fit me

Here’s what I don’t love :

  • Powder puff is not convenient to use, doesn’t have a ribbon or anything to get a grip
  • Attached mirror seems delicate
  • Powder all by itself doesn’t stand upto to the claims, seems to work better with the co-ordinating foundation
  • Silver shimmer in the powder makes it inconvenient to build up the product if necessary – like touch ups

 

That said, once again Maybelline has got all the attention for it’s newly launched products. However, Maybelline Fit Me! Set + Smooth powder is slightly disappointing as a powder.

On the upside, it works awesome if you want to slightly highlight the key areas of your face.

Hope you found this post useful!

Which Maybelline Fit Me ! range have you tried? Do you have any recommendations for me?

Thanks

Maybelline Newyork Summer Essentials Kit

Beauty

maybelline summer essentials

Summer Essentials often change for me every year. While I always made sure to keep up with the newest launches for the season, there were always some exceptions. I often tweaked my routine to match my skin needs to make sure I get the best out of what I use.

And coming to makeup, be it summer or any other season, I always made sure stock up on season appropriate makeup so I don’t deviate much from my routine. But summers in Hyderabad have been pretty hot and humid lately.

If last year was pretty hot, this year it turned out to be scorching hot. So I have toned down the number of products I use this time. I preferred to keep it simple and to restrict myself to just 3 summer essentials.

Luckily, Maybelline just sent over their summer kit and honestly, this turned out to be the exactly 3 essentials I wanted.

Here’s what I got in the Summer Essentials kit –

maybelline summer essentials

  • The Colossal Kajal
  • White Super Fresh Compact
  • Babylips in Berry Crush

 

The Colossal Kajal

The Colossal Collection is one of my favorites from Maybelline Newyork. I just love their Colossal Liner better than any eye liner in the market. And to accompany it, there’s no better companion than the Colossal Kajal.

If you love their kajals as much as I do, you should check out their all new colossal kajal in super black. It’s the best!

White Super Fresh Compact

Maybelline New York‘s White Super Fresh Compact Powder is a 12 hour perfecting compact which helps to stay fresh, fair and always in control! It’s perfect for a Girl On The Go. It comes in a chic white case which is simply convenient and easy to carry around for all the frequent touch ups.

You can read my full and detailed review here

 

Babylips

Another all time favorite is the Babylips collection. As much as I love their Candy Wow collection, their Babylips originals are still one of the best.

You can read about their babylips spiced up collection here

 

 

Kajal for the eyes to make them look bigger and brighter, compact to keep my face shine free and babylips to keep my lips supple and soft with a subtle hint of color.

Can anything be more perfect for summer?

Maybelline New York Lip Gradation and Colossal Kajal Super Black

Maybelline New York is associated with the most elite fashion shows all around the world, be it London, Milan or New York. After a super successful debut at Amazon India Fashion Week, last year, Maybelline New York is back as the official makeup sponsor of Amazon India Fashion Week this year.

The theme for this season is ‘From New York To India’ bringing in the latest trends of blurred lips and bold eyes straight to India with Lip Gradation and Colossal Super Black.

Here’s what these products claim :

Maybelline New York Lip Gradation

Lip Gradation

  • It’s a buttery soft powder stick.
  • It has a color stick at one end and a cushion blender on the other to give you a perfectly blended and graded effect.
  • Highly saturated pigments to give you that gorgeous pop of color.
  • 8 Matte powder shades.
  • The product can be applied all over the lips or alternatively as a matte lip liner.

  • Buy – http://www.nykaa.com/Maybelline+lip+gradation

 

Maybelline New York Colossal Kajal Super Black

  • Suitable for sensitive eyes and contact lens users.
  • Price: Rs. 300/-
  • Buy – http://www.nykaa.com/Maybelline+The+Colossal+Kajal+Black

 

Honestly, Maybelline has done it again. Their Go Graffiti and Rebel Bouquet collections were a big hit last year and now this season, I am already a big fan of their Colossal Kajal Super Black and Lip Gradation Collections. 

For me, it’s definitely the love at first swatch and without doubt this is one of the best kajals I have used so far. Intense, black, smooth and long lasting; I couldn’t ask for more from a Kajal. And Lip Gradation lip colors are super easy to use to create the blurring effect or gradient lip tint look. I currently have Red and I am so looking forward to get one in pink or Fuchsia or maybe both. I think these are just great for the Spring/Summer looks.

So, have you tried Colossal Kajal Super Black yet? What’s your favorite from Lip Gradation Collection?

Much Love
