Elle first broke the news 1 1/2 years ago that Maybelline planned to introduce Baby Lips late last year, and bloggers have been singing its praises ever since - I finally broke down and bought some for myself.
My first purchase was a "two-fer" pack - probably a holiday stocking stuffer promotion - that I found on a Target clearance endcap about a week ago. It contained two flavors: "Quenched" (shown here) and "Peach Kiss". Quenched is clear, and has a faint lemon scent to it but no taste (as far as I can tell). Peach Kiss is a pale, shimmery peach-color with a slight peachy scent and taste (but again, very subtle, especially compared to other flavored offerings out there). I thought both of them provided great moisture while feeling nice and light on my lips; the consistency isn't heavy, thick or waxy at all. Plus, I was happy to discover they contain SPF-20 and are paraben-free. The Peach one also delivered a lovely wash of color, so I went back to Target a couple of days later to pick up "Cherry Me", which looks bright red but goes on as a punchy pink. And unlike many "cherry flavored" balms, this one smells light and fresh without leaving any "chemical" taste in your mouth.
Baby Lips also comes in "Pink Punch", "Peppermint" and "Grape Vine", and retail for about $3.50 each. I'm definitely a fan, and would recommend them if you want a light/non-greasy - yet deeply moisturizing - lip balm.
