Alternative Title: Don't Ever Buy Into Beauty Blogger Hype
I'm sure you all remember the beauty blogosphere going crazy for Maybelline Baby Lips. When I first heard of them, I was incredibly uninterested in them, Glorified lip balms are just not for me. Unfortunately, I also worked at Superdrug at this time in my life and somewhere along the line, hearing bloggers go mad for these and my colleagues go mad for these, I caved and bought some.
What a mistake.
It's not that these are an inherently bad product - the pink one gave a fantastic, moisturising lip colour. However, the peach one did not show up on my lips at all and I don't even know why I bought the plain mint one because by this point I was already smitten with another lip balm. Stupid!
As a lip colour, the pink one's great. As a balm, yeah, great. Just as good as anything else you can get in Superdrug really.
These products just AREN'T FOR ME. And I gave them away within a few weeks of buying them. A mistake to buy them really.
I suppose this isn't really a review, it's more of a "I'm so glad I don't buy into the hype anymore." Honestly, every product I've ever bought because multiple beauty blogs were raving about it have been so boring, or even worse, total duds. It has made me very, very wary of products that a lot of bloggers are blogging about and kinda made me realise that actually, yeah, getting paid to do stuff does affect the review! But that's another topic.
I've grown up a lot this year since I've stopped reading as many beauty blogs and well, stopped spending the vast majority of my time in Superdrug. It has saved me a lot of money and it has reaffirmed my belief that if you find a brand you love, STICK to that brand you love! There is such a thing as too many beauty products and you don't have to settle for anything less than the best.
