I was so excited when I spotted these limited edition Baby Lips. I am a huge fan of the Maybelline New York Baby Lips and I have a whole range of colours that I use, but I’m always up for adding to my stash. There were a few other pairs on the shelf but these were the most pigmented and I liked them best. Baby Lips are great for the cooler weather, and they even have a special line of Maybelline New York Dr. Rescue Baby Lips last Winter, which I posted about here.
These limited edition Baby Lips shades are Winter Flush and Ruby Star. Winter Flush is more of an orange-red hue and Ruby Star is more of a berry red shade. They have the same formula and feeling of the original Baby Lips and are semi-sheer but can be built up for a more opaque colour. These ones have a peppermint scent and a slight tingle on my lips, which I don’t mind.
The colours are kind of similar but different enough to both be useful in my daily makeup routines. I wear the Ruby Star shade for a bolder look and later it for a deeper colour, and keep the Winter Flush one as a lighter everyday shade. Winter Flush reminded me of my favorite Baby Lips shade, Cherry Me, from the original collection.
Although the package says 8 hours of hydration I don’t quite get that long. I do get a few hours of soft, moisturized lips, and a pretty colour too, so that’s worth it to me. These are basically lip balms but better. They keep my lips soft and safe from the cold winter weather and they have a huge range of shades to pick from.
If you’re a fan of the original Baby Lips, or the Electro Baby Lips, then you’ll probably like these two new shades. Since they are limited edition I would suggest you get out there and start searching for them before they’re gone!
