|(L-R) Flirty Pink and Blooming Ruby|
The balms look similar to the EOS lip balms, with their egg shape. I'm not a big fan of the outer part of the packaging though, I'd rather if it didn't have that sort of straight top - it makes it a little awkward to control the product, as it's quite thin compared to the rest of the product. That's only a minor packaging issue though as the product itself is really great.
They have the same texture and consistency of regular lip balms, which immediately make me feel like they wouldn't be ideal on the cheeks, but I'm glad to report that I was wrong! When applied to the cheeks, the balms give a beautiful sheen to the skin. They feel slightly tacky when first applied, but I find that is usually the case with cream blushes. Once you allow it to set and put a little translucent powder on top, you're good to go. I apply them straight from the bullet onto the cheeks then just blend them out with my Real Techniques Setting Brush.
I find that they wear really well on the face as they adhere to the skin nicely.
They've also got the same scent as the Pink Punch Baby Lips Lip Balm, which I love!
The Baby Lips Balm and Blushes come in four shades - the two shown here are Blooming Ruby and Flirty Pink, and there's also Innocent Peach and Shimmering Bronze.
They're €7.49 each but Boots are currently buy one get one half price so you could pick one up half price if you're purchasing something else from Maybelline. For the price I think they're great handbag products for easy makeup days and touch ups.
