[Review] Baby Lips by Maybelline - Part One

Today, while being at the Pharmacy, I stepped in front on these new little lipstick.

I picked one, out of curiosity and the cosmetic dept. seller told me they were quite popular (which I could confirmed by the display being quite empty).
My lips being quite a desaster since it’s winter in here, I’ve decided to get myself one and see the result.
So I took the Quenched one, the translucent one.

 

It says on the packaging that it moisturize the lips for 8 hours.
It also says that within 4 weeks of regular daily usage that your lips will have major visible change such as:

  • 82% visibly less dry.
  • 94% less rough lips.
  • 77% more supple lips.
  • 77% better looking lips.

A big must is that this lip balm contains a SPF 20.
Also, there’s many tints available, which makes it more interesting than normal lip balm! I took the translucent one for daily wear but I’m thinking about getting “Cherry Me” and “Peach Kiss”.
Texture is soft and isn’t sticky. 

 

Quenched 005 - Peppermint 010 - Cherry Me 015 - Grape Vine 020 - Pink Punch 025 - Peach Kiss 030

So here’s a picture of my lips:

I’ll post an other one at the end of the “testing” month!

Part One of Two of the review is now completed.

Notes

Always check your cosmetics before leaving the shop.
A little misadventure happened to me today. I went to the drug store to buy the new Aquarella palette from Lise Watier. I paid and got back home.At home, I opened the package and there was my surprise.A sad surprise. A new shattered palette.Went back to the store and got a new palette for free.(and two other palettes from their stock were shattered also)
I’m not trying to warn you about Lise Watier products, no, error like that happens with any brands, I’m just reminding you how important it is to check if it’s the right product in the package.You never know what could have happened, if the wrong color is in the package or like what happened to me, the makeup being shattered.That said, that palette is amazing!

Double Lip Gloss Swatches!

This weekend I went to my local Anna Sui counter to check out the new limited edition Double Lip Gloss and grab some swatches for you!

On my hands you see both the Rouge Color (vivid matte colour that really sticks to your lips) on the right and the Pearl Color (gloss colour that adds shine, shimmer and plumpness to your lips) on the left. In the middle, it’s both of them together. I also took pictures of the Rouge Colors alone on my lips and then with the Pearl Colors added. And lastly, a picture of the packaging it comes in, clearly inspired from the famous Graphic Rose Striped print pirate dress of Anna Sui’s Spring 2007 collection:

I particularly appreciated how “3D” it made my lip makeup looking! Even moreso than any other Anna Sui Lip Gloss I own. I ended up going back home with the orangy coral Double Lip Gloss #03 “Prismatic Rose”…♥

The main Anna Sui website has been updated with the new Spring cosmetics collection! You can now find all the official content in English. There are also look tutorials, including the one Frida is wearing (I wish they would have made them step-by-step, like the Beach 2011 collection’s, though!)
Also, have you noticed the change? There is now a direct link to the Facebook page in the menu, as well as a mysterious “Sui Fan Club” that is not functional yet. I don’t know about you, but I’m very excited about this!
