Baby Lips Loves NY! + giveaway!

Maybelline has revamped their popular Baby Lips lip balm to celebrate fashion. I am a firm believer in fashion and beauty being close relations, and despite being fashionably challenged I was drawn to the new design like a moth to a flame.
The Protecting Berry scent is nice and fruity, and fans of general berry scents should be happy with it. The taste isn't very yummy, which I like at the moment as it means I won't lick all the goodness off of my lips. It claims 8hr moisture but I reapply more often than that, as this is the kind of balm that works really well under a lipstick.
Adore that this balm has SPF20 yet feels light on the lips, ever since my Thai holiday I'm upping the ante with products containing SPF. My skin is enough of a pain without adding sun damage into the mix!
The tube design is bold and stands out in pink,white and black, which makes a nice contrast to the super bright packaging of the regular line of balms. The print is on the plastic itself which means it can't peel off or fade, which may seem insignificant but really does matter when cuteness is a deciding factor in your purchase.
My future mother-in-law was entranced by this design and even slipped out of a pre-wedding mani to dash to Priceline to pick it up when I showed her my tube (no, it wasn't my wedding, I'm not that organised haha) The Protecting Berry scent is probably my favourite out of the bunch, and with the gorgeous design I think this is a must-have for any beauty or fashion lover.

 Maybelline Baby Lips balms retail for $3.95 AUD and are available at Priceline, department stores, pharmacies and supermarkets nationally. This is said to be a limited release only available for the month of February but everywhere I've checked still have shelves full.

GIVEAWAY!
If you would like to win a Protecting Berry scented Baby Lips Loves NY limited edition balm just be a follower of this blog and leave a comment below sharing with me your idea for a lip balm flavour/scent!

  2. I really like the popart theme they have going with the packaging.

    I think a sarsaparilla lip balm would be interesting, though I suspect it might make me thirsty...

  4. I love delicious-smelling lip glosses, although it sometimes makes me want to eat them. Pineapple and coconut is my absolute favourite scent for gloss. Hint, hint Maybelline!

    1. Yes I always end up wanting to eat them all up. I've been loving pineapple scents too, would go nicely with coconut. They have a mango pie one out, you might like that?

  9. I own all of the available balms in Australia. The ones in America are different and have tints!
    I even got this one from Maybelline's facebook as a prize for fashion week.

    I wish i could find the limited edition version with the white top and pink case! Then my collection would be complete!
