My Take On Maybelline New York Alia Loves New York Baby Lips:
Packaging: The lip balm comes in a standard maybelline baby lips tube packaging but has a pretty metallic packaging and is travel friendly.
Texture: The lip balms glide easily on the lips without any tugging or pulling and forms a moisturizing film with a hint of pigmented colour.
Shades: The range comes in 4 beautiful shades, below is a summary on each-
Broadway Red- This is a proper red shade and is quite pigmented like sheer lipsticks.
Brookyln Bronze- Brookyln bronze is a peach-nude shade and is decently pigmented.
Manhattan Mauve- This is a mauve shade and pigmented like a sheer lipstick.
Highline Wine- This is the darkest shade in the range and is a beautiful pigmented wine colour.
How I use and after-effects/staying power: To use, simply swipe the product onto your lips directly. One swipe gives a very light shade and layering it makes the colour darker and look very pigmented just like a sheer lipstick.
The lip balm has great moisturizing property and forms a thick-waxy layer on your lips which increases its staying capacity. It hydrates lips and heals dry patches which makes it great product for even harsh winters. I have used almost every baby lips variant but this range has the most pigmented lip balms as compared to other variants and can also be used in place of sheer lipsticks. The pigment is quite prominent and because the lip balm texture is thick and waxy, the stain remains for god 4-5 hours. Lips stay hydrated and soft all day long and chapped lips are repaired. Perfect to be used under a matte/usual lipstick, as a night lip treatment or simply alone for a sheer yet pigmented colour. Overall, these lip balms are great and the best in baby lips range; so if you are in a lookout for a pigmented lip balm, these are just right for you!
