I can’t believe it is December already! Winters are here, and chapped or dry lips can be painful and unattractive. Using a good lip balm is one of the effective dry lips treatments. Maybelline rightly caters to this season with their new launch of Baby Lips Bright Out Loud! lip balms. They provide a punch of moisture with a loud pop of color. They come in four variants, and I picked the shade “Pink Alert.”

My Experience with Maybelline Baby Lips Bright Out Loud! Color Pink Alert
Packaging: This lip balm comes in a pretty sleek bright hot pink packaging. The packaging looks cute and convenient. The bold wordings printed in bright neon green against the completely pink packaging give that edgy look. The actual lip balm too comes in the same bright pink color. The cap shuts off with a click, making it travel friendly. Unlike any Baby Lips lip balms, the shade name is printed on the cap of the tube itself. Also, as always, it is printed in a color-coded sticker at the bottom of the tube. This lip balm is packed in an outer carton with all the product details, including the ingredients list, printed on it.
Texture: This pink-colored lip balm has a soft and glossy texture. It applies smoothly on the lips. This lip balm is so lightweight, and layering does not feel heavy on the lips. However, too much layering will make the lip balm slip out of the lips. For a lip balm, it has a good pigmentation, but 2–3 swipes needed for the color to show up on my pigmented lips. I trust the color payoff would be even better on non-pigmented lips. It does not feel sticky and balmy. It has a pleasant fragrance and is also enriched with SPF 13.
Shade: “Pink Alert” is a bright pink-colored lip balm. I love the color payoff on my pigmented lips and the instant brightness it adds up to my face. On non-pigmented lips, it might even look like a pink lipstick with sheer finish.
Below are swatches of all 4 shades in this range:
Vivid Peach is a nice orangy peach-colored lip balm.
Striking Orange is a vibrant orange-colored lip balm.
Beaming Violet is a bright magenta-colored lip balm.
Performance: As the name suggests, this lip balm comes in a bright pink color. It moisturizes the lips very well. Its glossy texture gives the lips fuller and juicy look. It has SPF 13, which protects the lips from harmful rays of the sun. The formula is really soft and comfortable to wear. However, it did not melt down in the packaging. There will be no balmy feel on the lips. It has a minty feel and gives an instant cooling and soothing sensation to the lips. Moreover, the color does not move or crease, if not layered too much. This lip balm does not transfer. It can survive light snacking. It does leave behind a beautiful stain on the lips. However, the color clings on to the dry patches of the lips. Though the glossy sheen of this lip balm vanishes in an hour, the color stays on for 4–5 hours, which is incredible for a lip balm. It heals chapped lips and keeps the lips soft and supple throughout the day. It does not settle into fine lines. The lips stay moisturized and hydrated for pretty long even after using this lip balm. Overall, it is truly a bright out loud lip balm that can even work as a sheer lipstick for some.
