There are six different shades to choose from in this collection. From left to right: Pink Shock, Fierce N Tangy, Berry Bomb, Oh Orange, Minty Sheer, and Strike a Rose.
Maybelline switched it up with this collection and made the tubes black with neon writing. I'm really loving this change, it's adorable!
The actual lip balms in the tubes are very bright looking. Only some colors appear to be that bright, I swatched every color on my lips in my video review.
From left to right: Berry Bomb, Minty Sheer, Strike a Rose, Fierce N Tangy, Pink Shock, and Oh Orange. Berry Bomb is a sheer medium purple. Minty Sheer has a slight green tint but is clear on the lips. Strike a Rose is a sheer coral-pink. Fierce N Tangy has a slight yellow tint but is also clear on the lips. Pink Shock is a sheer hot pink. Oh Orange is a sheer medium orange. All of these swatches are 2 swipes, except for Minty Sheer and Fierce N Tangy which are 3 swipes.
Claims: "Our exclusive formula moisturizes lips for a full 8 hours. Lips renewed in 1 week* (*Based on panelists’ self-evaluations)" I explain this more in detail in the video.
Finish/Texture: The finish of these is shiny and the texture is very smooth and silky.
Lasting Power: The tinted colors last about 3 hours, but they leave behind a pretty stain which can extend the wear time by two hours or more.
Scent: Each Baby Lips has it's own unique scent, I explain this more in my video review.
Packaging: I love the black tubes! Baby Lips have twist up applicators with long caps. I love the long caps because they help me prevent scraping the lip balm when I'm in a hurry.
Price/Availability: I paid $3 each for these at Harmon's in Bed Bath and Beyond.

This is my favorite Baby Lips collection by far! I'm not too sure if these are limited edition or not, but either way they are going to sell out fast. Baby Lips are a great option for someone who wants a pop of color in lip balm form. The formula isn't the most moisturizing in the world, but I feel that it lives up to the claims and leaves my lips feeling soft and supple. They smell great, the packaging is adorable, and last a decent amount of time. Some of the brighter colors will stain your lips, but it stains evenly and looks nice.
If you don't have a Harmon's beauty department near you, or if you don't feel like hunting them down like I did, you will have to wait until July for this collection to be at other drugstores. I asked Maybelline directly via Twitter, and that's what they told me, but they might pop up in some places towards the end of June. I also asked them if these are limited edition or not, but they haven't responded yet. I'll just say that if you want these, get them, because it's better to be safe than sorry!
Each color is so pretty on the lips, but my favorite two are definitely Strike a Rose and Pink Shock. They are the most pigmented in the collection, and the two that I think will flatter everyone's skin tone.
Here's my video review, be sure to watch this if you want to see lip swatches and hear about the scents that each one has! I felt that describing these tings would be easier in a video.
