Maybelline Baby Lips Lipbalm in Smoothing Cherry
I've been wanting to get my hands on this baby ever since Maybelline has posted them on their FB page mainly because I wanted to find a product that would help lighten and moisturize my lips. I am not a smoker, I am just fond of using lipsticks, lip glosses and other lip products to conceal my dark lips. However, I realized that it's a mistake to conceal the lips using lipstick and similar products. There are times that I want to go bare faced, but my lips won't cooperate - they either go dry or be really pigmented. =(
Last time I've been to SM San Lazaro, I was with my sister-in-law, she asked me to go with her because she's buying something. We went to the department store for some reasons. I saw the Maybelline stall and decided to check if they have the lipbalms already. My sister-in-law wanted to buy one, too, when she saw me looking at them. She told me, "I want one, too. But we're not allowed to wear dark colored lipstick/make-up at work now." She asked me to pick a nice shade for her and since only there were only three out of the four variants were available, I had to choose between Smoothing Cherry, Energizing Orange and Relieving Menthol. My pick is Smoothing Cherry, but there was only one left. I told her to get the Energizing Orange but she doesn't want to. I asked the SA if they still have stocks of the Cherry variant but she said there's none, convincing me to get the Menthol one instead. My sis-in-law is pregnant and she can't use the menthol one, so I told the SA, "No, thanks. She can't use mentholated ones since she's pregnant." I let her buy the cherry one and walked home with nothing.
So, last Sunday, when my hubby and I went to SM San Lazaro, I decided to drop by the department store after my hair cut. I saw that the Cherry variant was out-of-stock in the Maybelline stall again and sadly walked away. I thought I could never get hold of it until… we saw all of the variants at Watson's! I even got confused at which variant to get, the Smoothing Cherry or the Anti-Oxidant Berry. In the end, Smoothing Cherry won! Haha! =D
Happy with the hair, happy with the lipbalm! ^__^
On Monday, before starting my lip-drying classes, I gleefully applied on the lipbalm on my lips and bam! My lips were moisturized in an instant. I also couldn't resist looking at my lips at the mirror because they look less pigmented and so supple! ^__^
I am hoping that it would really do wonders on my puckers. Aside from my eyes, my lips are what people also usually notice. That's why I want to lessen the dark pigmentation and achieve that natural pink lips look. Oh! How I wish!
I am having high expectations on this product!
Maybelline Baby Lips, don't fail me! Aja!!! ^__^
