Maybelline recently released a new collection of tinted Baby Lips balms for spring, called the “Pink’ed” collection. It contains five new and limited edition shades, which you can see below. I bought one, in the shade Very Berry.
I haven’t reviewed Baby Lips balms before, but I like them. I don’t find them particularly moisturizing, so they’re not my choice to actually repair dry lips. However, when my lips are in good condition, they work well enough, and I especially like the tinted ones.
Very Berry is one of the more pigmented Baby Lips I’ve tried. Like all the others, I find it mildly moisturizing with a smooth texture. It has a pleasant fruity scent – I usually dislike too-sweet or too-strong scents, and this is neither.
When I swatched Very Berry, I realized it was quite similar to Maybelline Baby Lips Electro in Pink Shock (which is permanent). They’re identical in the tube (though the tubes themselves are different) . . .
. . . and very similar swatched, though Very Berry has just a hint of purple and Pink Shock does not. You can see from the one-swipe swatch that Very Berry is quite pigmented for a tinted balm.
My lip swatch appears a bit more neon in the photo than it is in person, but it’s still useful to see the pigmentation level, I think.
Overall, I like Very Berry, especially for the price. However, if you can’t find the Pink’ed display, just get Pink Shock instead – it’s pretty much identital.
