Review : Maybelline Lip Smooth Color and Care

Monday, September 12, 2011

Having dry chapped lips are just one of the worst feelings I have to go through if I've forgotten my lip balm at home that day. I lick my lips constantly (a bad habit), hence drying them out even more. 

So, when I shopped at Watsons last week, I stopped buy at the Maybelline counter to get the clear smooth blushes, but also bought this just because it looked cute. I know it's not a good enough reason to buy something, but I'm trying my best to get rid of that habit. 

After a good week, here's my take on the lip balm. 

Maybelline New York Lip Smooth Color and Care in 'Strawberry'


A lip balm that has SPF 15 and a sheer touch of color.

How I Use It
I apply in the morning and reapply it if my lips feel dry (around every 2 hours)

What I Like About It
  • It's readily available in most Maybelline counters in Jakarta
  • The price isn't too expensive (I forgot the exact price, but I think it was around Rp 30,000-ish)
  • The packaging is just lovely and adorable, with white circles all over 
  • It fits into my makeup bag perfectly since it is compact and smaller than my Nivea Essential Care
  • It has a slight strawberry sweet scent
  • Adds a bit of color on my lips, but nothing too bold or vibrant
  • Feels moisturizing on my lips
  • It has SPF 15, but without that sunscreen taste like the Nivea ones (not essential care, the yellow one, if I'm not mistaken)
What I Hate About It
  • So far, nothing
Summary
I would recommend it to :
  • People who have normal to dry lips
  • Someone who dislikes lipsticks or lip glosses, but want a sheer touch of color on the lips
  • Someone who wants a moisturized lips and protected from the sun 
P.S: I was thinking about holding a weekly monthly giveaway (internationally), so you guys can try out some of the stuff that I have been liking that week month. There will only be one item, though. So, let me know if you're interested in the comment section. Thanks a lot guys ^^

  2. I didn't know that Maybelline made balms - it sounds great and I love the packaging. My advice on chapped lips is to exfoliate them with honey, sugar and an old toothbrush. It sounds simplistic but it works!

  4. Pricillia : The strawberry smells nice.. It's sweet and strawberry-like. The cherry smells that bad? >.<

    Suki : Ah, yes! I sometimes exfoliate using old toothbrush, that trick works everytime..

    Severus : kalo yang ku rasain sih, yang MNY lebih smooth rasanya di bibir, tapi kalo Nivea itu warnanya lebih merah, jadi lebih kliatan.. Kalo MNY ga gitu kentara pake lip balm berwarna :)
