You better believe it - they're finally coming! The Maybelline Baby Lips that took the United States by storm will be landing here in the UK from August 2013!
As you can see, the UK have been graced with six different flavours/shades with different purposes. From left to right:
HYDRATE.. a clear base with a lemon basil scent and SPF20.
MINT FRESH.. a clear base with a mint scent and SPF20.
INTENSE CARE.. a clear base with a cherry almond scent and SPF20.
PINK PUNCH.. a blue-based bright pink base with a passion fruit scent.
CHERRY ME.. a darker warmer pink base with a cherry scent.
PEACH KISS.. a sheer nude base with a peach scent.
As you can see, they've split three with SPF20 and some sort of care property and three with a tint.
I've had the opportunity of trying the Baby Lips that have been out in the United States and Japan, and I can say that the United States' and UK's formulas and packaging are very similar. In terms of formula, they're quite solid balms but absolutely melt on your lips and they're really quite slippery. However, the shades are different! So if you've read glowing reviews from the bloggers across the pond, don't you worry as you'll be getting the same deal over here :)
Although I've had the US and Japanese version for a while, I haven't used them religiously so I can't tell you as of yet how I feel about them in terms of their long-term effects but a few things I can say with conviction are their gorgeous bright packaging which clicks shut, the mouth-watering scents and the nice slip they give. My personal favourites are HYDRATE and PEACH KISS! :)
These will hit Boots and Superdrugs from August at £2.99 each.
