Even though winter is practically over by now, I still got something wintery I want to review: the Winter Delight Baby Lips collection. As some of you might know, I’m obsessed with Baby Lips. Ever since they were first launched in the Netherlands I’ve been loving them, and that love never stopped. Every time they launch a new collection, I have to get them all, which is what I did as soon as I heard about this collection. If you’re interested in finding out whether or not they are worth it, make sure you keep on reading!
Let’s immediately start off with my favourite colour out of the four: Sweet Apple. First of all the name is absolutely adorable, and so is the packaging. I really love how these Baby Lips looks. The little mittens on the front and the ear warmers on top are so cute. I absolutely love it.
Sweet Apple is, as you can tell, a red coloured lipbalm. Usually I’m not someone who wears a lot of red on her lips, but when it comes to tinted lipbalms, I do like me some red. I think that that is because it’s just not as obvious and bright, and it’s not as hard to maintain as a real red lipstick.
As you can tell, Sweet Apple is quite pigmented for a tinted lipbalm, but it’s definitely not too pigmented. For me it has the right amount of colour pay off, I like it a lot. I like that it has a bit of a pinky undertone, it’s almost a bit for a coral colour (which for those of you who don’t know, is my favourite colour ever).
When it comes to comfort, these Baby Lips are incredible. I think you can tell from the picture, but these Baby Lips are super creamy and soft and not heavy at all. I absolutely love wearing them.
Onto the second Baby Lips from this Winter Delight collection, called Mint Candy. Mint Candy is one of the two clear to very, very sheer colours in this collection. Even though I absolutely love wearing tinted lipbalms, I do like having some clear (or nearly clear) ones too, just in case I want to wear lipbalm when I’m not wearing makeup or when I just don’t feel like having colour on my lips.
Mint Candy comes in a really cute mint coloured packaging, which kinda explains the super adorable name. I really like the look of this packaging and I think it represents the winter theme really well.
Like I said, Mint Candy is practically clear. If you look really, really closely you might be able to tell that there is a teeny tiny bit of colour there, but it’s not a lot and for me it’s just clear. Even though it’s clear and therefore not as exciting, it still is a really, really nice lipbalm.
Just like the other three balms from this range, Mint Candy is very moisturising. I really like that about the Baby Lips. It really moisturises my lips and leaves them feeling super soft and completely repaired from all of the damage that had been done.
Hot Cocoa, which is the third colour from the range, is the next one I’m going to discuss. Hot Cocoa is, just like Mint Candy, nearly clear, even though you might not expect that looking at the balm itself. It looks like it could be the perfect nude shade, but in my experience, it’s basically just clear.
The thing I like so much about Hot Cocoa is that the packaging, well the balm itself to be precise, matches the name so well. The balm really has that hot cocoa shade. I think that’s a really nice detail.
As you can tell, it has a little bith more pigment than Mint Candy does, but it still is nearly invisible. Because it’s nearly invisible you might think it’s actually less pigmented that Mint Candy, but that’s not true. This one really evens out my lip colour. It’s almost like a sheer foundation for the lips, if that makes any sense.
Something all Baby Lips have, is a special scent. The Dr. Rescue range smells like something medical, and these smell a bit like cinnamon. Even though these balms have a relatively strong smell to them and it’s not one I’d usually like, I do like it. I think it really fits the wintery theme and it just adds something to the overall feel of these balms.
The last colour I’m going to discuss is Sugar Cookie. Sugar Cookie comes in a bright pink packaging with baby blue letters and a bright pink balm. I absolutely love bright pink colours like this one, especially when it’s in a tinted lipbalm kinda way.
As I mentioned about a million times on my blog, I’m not the person you’ll see wearing lots of bright lip colours, so usually colours like this aren’t for me. But because it’s a tinted lipbalm and therefore not as intense as other bright lip colours like this one, I do love wearing it.
Even though I personally do really like this colour, I do think Sugar Candy can look a bit trashy on some people. This is really a colour that has to suit you in order for it to be pretty and it’s definitely not a colour for everyone, that’s one thing I know for sure.
When it comes to pigmentation Sugar Cookie is definitely no disappointment. It’s, as you can tell, very bright as pigmented, but still not as intense as a normal lipstick, which makes it a lot more wearable.
Overall I do really like these Winter Delight Baby Lips. They aren’t my favourites, they didn’t beat the Dr. Rescue Baby Lips, but they are really cute and amazing. They are very moisturising, they have a nice scent, they come in really pretty shades and the packagings look absolutely adorable. I highly recommend checking these Baby Lips out!
The Maybelline Baby Lips Winter Delight are available at the drugstore for €3,99.
