Maybelline Baby Lips and Lots of Lashes Review

Hola! Today I have the pleasure of writing a review for Maybelline New York Baby Lips collection and Lots of Lashes Mascara. These products were provided for me free of cost as part of being a BzzAgent.
Lets start with the Baby Lips Lip Balms. I was fortunate enough to receive five of the six colors in this collection.
From left to right: 10-Peppermint, 05-Quenched, 25-Pink Punch, 15-Cherry Me, 30-Peach Kiss

Product Details (Retail for $3.99 each)

Why You'll Love It

No more basic lip balm:
• Visibly renewed lips and 8-hr hydration
• The secret: Exclusive lip renew formula with SPF 20
• Protects and moisturizes lips for a full 8 hours
• After 4 weeks, lips are visibly renewed and  reborn
• 6 varieties
These are 4.4g/0.5oz.

For Best Results

Apply your lipcolor by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

Now this is my honest opinion. I could not love these anymore! I am not a big fan of glosses, most are very sticky, my hair is constantly stuck to my lips and the wet/shiny look is just not for me. I can tolerate most lipsticks but I find myself reaching for lip balms more often than not.
What I love about these is that not only do they make my lips feel super soft and hydrated, they also give my lips a slight tint of color. Mind you these lip balms are not extremely pigmented but I think they are perfect if you want a natural wash of color to complete your look.

This is Peach Kiss on the left, Pink Punch in the middle, and Cherry Me on the right.
Please excuse the quality of the photos, my camera seems to not like me very much at all so this is the best I could do. My skin looks grey but the lip balm colors are as accurate as I could capture them; the other two I have (Quenched and Peppermint) are clears. Also these balms do have yummy scents which are very true to their names. The only one that's still a mystery to me is Quenched; it smells very lemony and sugar-ish and it reminds me of something but I cannot for the life of me figure out what. The scents aren't overpowering at all and I could only smell it for about two minutes after application.

And now on to the Lots of Lashes Mascara.

Product Details (Retail for $6.40 each)

I received five of these so I had more than enough to give away to friends and family and that's just what I did; my mom and sister both grabbed one each, I kept two for myself and still have one left to give to a friend. Boy am I glad I kept two. I LOVE! LOVE! LOVE! these, I cannot stress this enough, they are just wonderful and exactly what I look for in a mascara. As you may have already assumed from this review, I really much prefer a natural look to my makeup (not that I apply much anyways =D) and this mascara is just the right product to keep my lashes looking long and thick without weighting them down and feeling like I have 10 coats of mascara on my lashes.

I like that the brush is small and very flexible. Before I was using COVERGIRL Lash Blast Mascara and the brush is very big and bulky which makes getting my bottom lashes and the corners coated a pain in the behind but with Maybelline Lots of Lashes this is not a problem anymore as the brush is small and at the same time big enough to get in the nooks and crannies and not take all day to coat every lash . But the most important thing that made me fall in love with this mascara is the fact that it can be easily removed with soap and water, YAY! (lol). No more having to rub and scrub my eyes with eye makeup remover to take off clumps of mascara off my lashes. Also I find that Lots of Lashes holds my lashes in place all day long and doesn't leave little clumps of fallen mascara on my cheeks.
Natural lash shape, not curled. Not fake lashes either.
Well, this is it for my review, I hope you all like it and I tried to get down as much information as possible but if you have any question don't hesitate to leave me a comment to contact me any other way. Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day =D.
