Confession: I am a lip balm fiend.
I have more of them than I can probably count, ranging from the classic Cherry ChapStick to the L’Oreal Color Riche LeBalm, to the fun EOS balm spheres. When Maybelline was first taking a stab at their Baby Lips line, I was actually invited to a BzzAgent campaign for them. They were decent, but I wasn’t fond of the aftertaste they left. Recently-ish, Maybelline released its medicated Baby Lips Dr Rescue line. I picked one up at Target to check out.
The Baby Lips Dr Rescue is similarly-packed in comparison to its predecessors. It features a longline, clear cap (though the Dr Rescue has a label around the cap that allows the bullet to just peak through). The entire base twists to advance the product up through the tube.
I meant to get Pink Me Up but accidentally grabbed this shade, called Coral Crave. It is medicated with menthol, which initially turned me off of it – I love minty things, but I am not such a fan of mentholated ones. Fortunately, the menthol smell/taste does not linger more than a couple minutes, so it won its way back into favor.
Both on my lips and in the swatch below, the color is very very sheer. I did swatch with a light hand, but I can’t imagine it would be that much more opaque had I used more pressure or applied more coats.
Here’s the back, as per usual. I actually did not pay attention to the back until I was writing this post – it says to apply not more than 3-4 times per day.
My lips were not chapped when I tried this product (remember that lip balm fiend part? yeah, they don’t get chapped often), so I am not able to confirm whether or not it helps in that regard – but I’ll update if I can confirm either way. (Also this is completely silly, but the name sounds reminds me of Doctor Girlfriend from the Venture Bros. and it just makes me laugh.)
Have you tried any of the Baby Lips Dr Rescue products?
