The packaging is pastel themed, adorable! There are six shades in this collection.
All of these shades look pigmented in the tube, but when swatched they're very sheer.
Claims: " Provides care that soothes sore lips with a hint of eucalyptus and combats dryness. It's available in natural tints to even out lip tone for healthier-looking lips. In one minute, lips feel soothed".
Finish/Texture: The finish is very shiny and the texture is a bit greasy. These have a lot of slip to them, which I don't like. It feels different than the original formula.
Lasting Power: These didn't leave a stain on my lips, and I felt like the formula never soaked in. These just slipped right off, they have no lasting power at all.
Scent: Here's my main problem: they smell and taste like Vicks Vapo Rub, which has a very strong eucalyptus scent. It also has a bitter taste, that's very off-putting.
Packaging: The packaging is cheap looking this time around, since the logo is actually a sticker. The sticker was on very loose, so it might fall off..and then you wouldn't know the shade name. I liked the color scheme, but I don't get why they used stickers this time.
Price/Availability: I paid $3.50 each at Wal-Mart.

I felt like Maybelline could have formulated these so much better. They seriously lacked in pigmentation, most of the colors barely show up on my lips and they didn't leave behind a stain. The texture felt very greasy, which I've never experienced in the past. I absolutely hate the smell of these, like I said it is my main problem with the formula. It smells exactly like Vicks Vapo Rub, which is awful to me. They also have a very bitter taste. I don't see how these could possibly live up to the 12 hour moisture claim, because I never felt like the formula soaked into my lips.
The formula on these feels completely different than the past Baby Lips, which I don't like. I don't feel like it soothed my lips, or even hydrated them. These actually felt drying, and since alcohol is one of the main ingredients.. I'm not so surprised.
I was so disappointed in this collection. Everything about these lip balms let me down. There's honestly nothing that impressed me here. I also wanted to mention that I know these balms are medicated with menthol, but they just smell horrible. I have tried other medicated balms in the past, and they didn't smell this bad!
Here's my video review if you would like to watch it!
This collection was a miss for me, have you tried them yet?
