Another review and another Baby Lips one at that! I haven’t done one of these for a very long time. I remember when Baby Lips first launched in the UK three years ago and I was mega obsessed with them, and especially with getting my hands on at least one shade! Three years on and I now own five different shades and have reviewed two of them, Mint Fresh, and Pink Punch.
Now it’s time to review my recently bought shade, and I have to say it is by far my favourite from the bunch!
Grapefruit Zing is from Maybelline’s new limited edition Baby Lips, which is called Pop Art, very funky for summer which is very much upon us right now (she says as she wipes sweat from her brow)!
I picked it up on a whim when I popped into Boots recently for a few bits and pieces. I didn’t need it, but I hadn’t bought myself a new Baby Lips for a while and thought why the hell not! I’m so glad I did because I use this so much since buying it.
I’m not going to lie when I say to any Baby Lips virgins, don’t expect amazing moisturisation from one of these bad boys as they really don’t help your lips stay soft. This is from what I’ve found anyway. This being said, it does help them stay hydrated, especially on hot days, like today! They’re more for a younger audience, and how fun it can be to wear a tinted lip balm. I get that, I was young once and loved stuff like this. I forever had a tube of Nivea cherry lip balm in my pocket! I would have rocked these as a teenager, which is probably why I still gravitate towards them now. That and they’re great for work if you just want a bit of colour. Speaking of which…
The pigmentation that you get from Grapefruit Zing is by far the best I have ever had from a Baby Lips! I wear this to work quite a lot and get so many compliments from staff, it’s crazy and I was kind of surprised. It’s a beautiful hot pink shade with a glossy look to it. A little bit of this goes a long way, and the more you apply, the darker the pink will become. Of course this applies to if you don’t apply a lot, you can get a more sheer pink shade. As all the Baby Lips shades have, this has a scent to coincide with the name of the shade. This smells of zesty grapefruit, which is really nice for the summer.
From top to bottom: Grapefruit Zing (Pop Art), Pink Punch (regular), Cherry Me (regular), and Berry Bomb (Electro).
I’ve done some swatches to compare my other Baby Lips shades (which are all permanent editions) so you can get an idea of how pigmented the shade is in comparison to previous ones. The only one I haven’t swatched is Mint Fresh, reasons being that I have misplaced it. Sorry, but it’s only a clear lip balm anyway.
Of course I have to show off me wearing the lip product! Do enjoy my sweaty, tired face after a shift at work. 😉
So overall I LOVE this Baby Lips shade, and I plan to buy the other two shades from the Pop Art collection, those being Blueberry Boom, and Bubblegum Pop. However, I cannot find either of them lately in stores! I guess they’re both just doing that well as everywhere seems to be sold out.
If you like the look of these, you can pick them up from Boots which is currently doing buy 1 get a 2nd half price, and Superdrug which is currently doing 3 for 2. They cost £2.99 each, which is a complete steal, and as there are three shades, you can grab them all on both the offers!
Will you be picking up any of the Pop Art Baby Lips? Which shade(s) you liking the look/sound of? Hey! Maybe you’ve already picked one, two, or all three up! What do you think of them? Make sure to let me know in the comments.
Until next time all, have a lovely day and I hope you’re all well.
