We all know how obsessed I am with these tinted balms, so of course I had to hunt down each shade in the new Maybelline Baby Lips Electro ($3.99 USD / $4.99 CAD) collection to share with you guys (these are one of the few products I simply just let myself hoard). This bright and vibrant collection features six limited-edition shades in shocking (yet sheer) neon shades.
The shades include Strike A Rose (coral pink), Minty Sheer (neon green), Berry Bomb (purple grape), Fierce ‘N Tangy (neon yellow), Pink Shock (hot pink) & Oh! Orange! (vibrant orange). All of the shades have a different scent (usually similar to its name) and they all smell fantastic. Minty Sheer and Fierce ‘N Tangy both look crazy in the tube, but go on the lips clear (in general, the crazier the color, the more sheer it goes on the lips).
While I can’t keep my grabby hands off of these lip balms, I have to say Strike A Rose and Oh! Orange! are my two favorites- plus I think everyone needs Minty Sheer, because the novelty of a neon green lip balm is pretty awesome.
These lip balms leave lips feeling smooth and hydrated. I agree with many out there that they aren’t the most hydrating lip treatment out there, but for me they do a pretty good job. These particular shades also lack the SPF 20 seen in the regular line (not sure why they removed it, but I hope it comes back in future color collections).
AVAILABILITY: Limited Edition. Available now at ULTA and other drugstores and mass retailers.
