It seems like the Maybelline brand is undergoing a revamp and unveiling fabulous products every day. Or it may be that I developed a little crush on this brand that I can see it all around :). Remember girls when back in India the only (as far as I know) brand which started selling these matte rainbow nail paints – red, blue, black, orange, yellow; in short all the nail paints to which your mom and grand mom would say “Yikkes” were sold by Maybelline :P. I have almost all colors of Maybelline nail paints (Yes, I am flaunting: P)
Anyways, due to long trusted relationship with Maybelline I decide to give this newly launched lip balm a try. This was a well advertised product and you cannot possibly help but notice it. So after seeing it stocked in display at a local shop just in front of my house for a month, I fell for the bait and made my way to the shop finally buying it.

My Experience with PRODUCT
For the price it comes for its easy to get someone to try this yet not expect much. I peeled off the lip balm from the cover with same feelings in my mind. I was curious to check the color so I first ran it to my fingers. The pigmentation and the fragrance were very mild which was up to my liking. I used it the next day at work and it was good till 4 hours approx. The battle of the lip balm with 2 two bottles of water & one tea during these 4 hours for its existence ended up in a victory:D . It was not all fresh but by lips were sufficiently hydrated. I reapplied it only after lunch.
But it is not like other lip balms which give kind of glossy feeling. It gives a healthy hydrated lip look with a little hue of the pink color. Overall the lips look healthy and natural. It is not heavy and waxy on lips. But I would suggest gliding it on a couple of times on your lips to get desired look. Just once is not enough to love it. The first day I wore it, it didn’t actually make me happy. I felt it was very ordinary and predictable. But the next day when I applied it firmly for a couple of times, I found it to be better. Let me tell you the pigment or color it gives to your lips is very natural and not in a patchy way.
