For this week's Frugal Friday I'm going to talk about the popular Maybelline Baby Lips.
It took me a while to join this party but now I wonder what the heck took me so long. These truly are super moisturizing.
The original formula claims "8hr moisture", to be honest, this is not true. You will be re-applying this fairly often but it's a balm so you should expect that. These have a very sheer color to them so even though it may look dark in the tube it will be super subtle on the lips. The colors have a gorgeous sheen to them.
There is a medicated version of the Baby Lips and it's called Dr. Rescue. These contain 0.5% menthol so they taste/smell like cough medicine which is a little disturbing but not too bad because it's not very strong and doesn't linger. The package claims that it's for the temporary relief of pain from fever blisters and cold sores. I don't get either of those so I can't say much for those claims. These also have a very sheer color and feel moisturizing.
