Maybelline Baby Lip Balm

Maybelline Baby Lips. Probably one of the most talked about lip balms in the beauty world.

Now originally I had no intention of getting any of them as to be perfectly honest I'm not one to jump on the band-wagon. And...I'm gonna be honest...I didn't use much lip balms or cared for them before...

I know, I know (O.o) very bad.!! BUT when I heard there was a Mint one I just had to get one (I love my Body Shop Mint Gloss so I was wondering if this one was just as good) and then my friend convinced me to get 3! (Plus it was 3 for 2 at Boots....it would've been a waste if I didn't right...?)

Mint Fresh
Okay. As you may know I am obsessed and love Mint products.! So I was really excited about trying this one. Especially as this was the only reason I got any of them.

It's really nourishing.!. It leaves my lips feeling fresh and once it soaks into my skin it leaves my lips feeling sooo soft.!. 
As it is clear I tend to use this as preparation for lipstick and as a overnight treatment for my lips. The packet does say "8 Hour Moisture" and I guess its true as I've tested it for overnight.!.!.

My lips are naturally peachy pink, but can you see the shine!!!
The only downside for me is that I could hardly smell Mint...like I dunno maybe it's just me but the scent is very faint. (Good if your not a fan of strongly scented products.!)

Cherry Me 
You may or may not know this about me but I am a big Berry fan...with the exception of Cherries. I normally can't stand any product with the scent as it tends to be overpowering BUT this one is THE BEST.!!.!.!.!

I actually love the smell of this.! It's not overbearing or in your face. It's sweet and just smells yummy.!.!. Plus the colour is very natural and will suit pretty much every skin tone.
Pink Punch

Last but definitely not least. This cute Pink really does smell divine.!.!. Also very subtle and not in your face.!.!. But it's a scent I can't really place...like grapefruit or a sweet I used to eat as a kid but I just can't put my finger on it.
The colour is almost like a Barbie Pink with a blue/purpleish undertone. I'm not entirely sure if I like it, I think its best to wear on daring days. I was surprised it even came out with some colour as I was honestly expecting it to be slightly clear...

Overall I do think I would repurchase them as they are cheap as they are £2.99 each, pigmented, have a some SPF protection and the scents are not overbearing.

Have you guys got these? And have you managed to figure out what Pink Punch smells like?
