Mwuah! Mwuah! My Initial Thoughts on Maybelline Baby Lips Lipbalm

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!!! ^__^
