Baby Lips Electro Neon Lip Balms from Maybelline New York - Now Out in Australia!

The buzz around these gorgeous tinted balms is pretty insane, and after trying them out for myself I can totally understand why! The Maybelline Baby Lips Electro* ($3.95) range feel a lot silkier and smoother than the original Baby Lips here in Australia, and the tint on them is more noticeable on the lips than what I had expected, which was a pleasant surprise.
 
My pick of the three is probably the watermelon flavoured Pink Shock, which is bright on the lips from the very first swipe. All 3 smell delicious but the best by far is Oh! Orange!, which smells just like a Lip Smacker I had back in the day and it totally brings me back in the best way. The berry flavoured Berry Bomb is a full-on purple in the tube but on the lips gives a nice natural flush to the lips that I think makes this one the most wearable for those afraid of colour.


Even though these feel nice and silky smooth on the lips, I don't find them to be much of a moisturiser compared to my overnight lip treatments. The stain left behind with Pink Shock is a bonus, but these are easy to apply without a mirror and are a nice easy balm option if you feel like injecting a bit of colour into your makeup look. 


 
 

Are you planning on picking one of these Electro lip balms up?
Which shade tempts you the most for $3.95?

  1. I'm really excited that these are out in Aus. Maybe that means they'll be bringing even more US stuff! I really love the look of the orange one, will definitely have to check these out.

  2. Ah!! Never been a super-fan of the Baby Lips, but they look great on you. Your skin and eye colour looks amazing too!!!!

    I'll pass on these, since I've already have a lot of lip balms/sticks/tints to finish. However, it's nice to see new additions by Maybelline!

    1. These feel really different to the original Baby Lips formula, perhaps you'll like these more? I have so many tints at the moment too though!

  5. All! The shades look to good to pass up and the nostalgic- lip smacker -factor in a slightly more sophisticated form.

  8. I am obsessed with Baby Lips! I bought the purple and the pink ones last week...I was disappointed with the purple, I was hoping it wouldn't be as sheer as it is

    1. Sorry to hear that you were disappointed, it was definitely more sheer than it looks like it would be and I prefer the pink shade

  9. I bought the purple one because i love orchid shades, they make my skin look brighter!
    Only thing, I wish it wasnt so sheer or they could make the tint last a bit longer.
    Planning to invest the orange one too, its a gorgeous colour :)

  10. Oooh they don't look as bold on the stick as they do when you swatch it! I like! Miss 12 snapped these up when she saw them on sale at Chemist Warehouse the other day. She was beside herself - huge fan of the Baby Lips range that one.
