Maybelline Baby Lips has to be my favorite lip balm. These lip balms come in different variants and colors. Moreover, Maybelline constantly brings on new additions to its Baby Lips range. One such new addition is their “Candy Rush” lip balms. They come in four candy tints. They drench the lips with a rush of translucent color, and I picked the shade “Gummy Grape.”

My Experience with Maybelline Baby Lips Color Candy Rush Gummy Grape
Packaging: This lip balm comes in a pretty, sleek, color-coded packaging. “Gummy Grape” comes in a light lilac color with bright pink cap. The bold wordings printed in pink against the lilac packaging looks funky. The shade name is printed on the packaging itself, whereas the manufacturing date is printed at the bottom of the tube. The actual lip balm too comes in the same bright pink color. The cap shuts off with a click, making it travel friendly. This lip balm is housed inside a similarly colored outer carton with all the product details, except the ingredients list, printed on it. The packaging is indeed cute and convenient.
Texture: This 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. It is a sheer color lip balm and can hide only light lip pigmentation. It does not feel sticky or balmy. It truly has a candy taste and color and is also enriched with SPF 20.
Shade: “Gummy Grape” is a light purple-colored lip balm. Although it is sheer and light, it is the darkest and pigmented shade in this range. It gives a beautiful purply pink tint to the lips.
Below are swatches of all 4 shades in this range:
Orange Jujube is a nice orange-colored lip balm.
Gummy Grape is a light purple-colored lip balm.
Watermelon Pop is a sheer red-colored lip balm.
Cotton Candy is a very light baby pink-colored lip balm.
Performance: As the name suggests, this lip balm has a kick of yummy candylicious flavor and color. Experience candy taste if you have the habit of licking your lips 😉 It is a sheer to lightly pigmented lip balm. Its smooth texture glides on the lips easily and gives an even finish. However, it breaks into tiny bits while applying. It moisturizes the lips very well. It is a non-sticky, non-greasy lip balm that makes lips smooth and healthy. The formula is really soft and comfortable to wear. There will be no balmy feel on the lips. It does not highlight dry patches as well. Its glossy texture gives the lips fuller and juicy look. It has SPF 20, which protects the lips from harmful rays of the sun. This lip balm does not transfer much. It can survive light snacking. It does leave behind a beautiful stain on the lips. Although 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. Its claim of 16-hour moisture may be way too much, but the lips stay moisturized and hydrated for pretty long even after using this lip balm. It comes in an affordable price as well. Overall, it is an amazing lip balm with a rush of candy color for daily use.
