Today I will be reviewing Maybelline Baby Lips Bright Out Loud! Lip Balm in Pink Alert, Vivid Peach & Beaming Violet. Maybelline’s Baby Lips series of lipbalms need no introduction at all. These series some of the best lip moisturizers in the Indian market under the affordable price tag. They come in a range of variants, they moisturize lips well and have very girly looking packaging. Because of my untamed lust for Baby Lips, I have become an ardent buyer of this series lip balms. I have actually lost count of the total number of Baby Lips that I have bought. That makes me think, Maybelline could use me for promoting their line of lipbalms! With all these small-talks done, let’s focus on the review to find more.

How To Use
Turn the base 1-2 times for usage. Reapply when lips are exposed to strong sun, wind or cold for maximum protection.
This lip balm comes in a sleek twist-up bullet which is coloured in very attractive and vibrant pink. The balm stick only mentions shade name and brand name in cartoonish fonts making the lip balm a must-have for funky looking makeup item lovers. The detailed claims, ingredients, guidelines and other detailed information are written in the outer cardboard covering of this lip balm. So, if you lose this outer pack, you are going to miss every bit of technical detail except for the expiry date.
Texture & Smell
The texture is very smooth and moisturizing capability is medium. The bullet is soft so the product applies to my lips quickly without heavy tug or pull. The balm does not settle into fine lines of my lips. I keep my balm stick in normal temperature but thankfully it is not showing any indication of melting till now. This lip balm has fresh mint kind of smell. The fragrance is very light and soothing.
Shade -Pink Alert
The shade Pink Alert is a bubblegum pink colour with neutral undertones. This particular undertone, in my opinion, works on everybody. The shade looks quite vibrant in the bullet and this vibe of pink is maintained as you apply it to your lips. This kind of pink shade is perfect for everyday purposes like while going to office or college.
Shade – Vivid Peach
It is a coral red-orange shade with warm undertones. The shade is perfect for all skin tones. This shade is a basic coal shade lip tint that everyone can use for daily purpose specially in the summer months. People who shy away from orange or coral shades will find it a good option to get acquainted with bold yet muted lip colour.
Shade – Beaming Violet
It is a pink-purple kind of lip tint with bluish undertones. Though it is cool toned shade, it suits Indian complexions because it gives translucent finish. Though the shade is neonish, it has subtlety that makes it a nice shade for college, office or outings
Pigmentation is very good with this Bright Out Loud! series of lip balms and the shades too is blessed with good colour-payoff. In 3-4 swipes the original colour comes to the lips in translucent form.
This lipbalm stays put on my lips for 3-4 hours without any meal or drink. After that the moisturizing balmy part starts to go off. The tint, however, remains for 2-3 more hours.
This lip balms give shiny finish to the lips. Though the shine is not too dramatic like lip glosses, it looks natural on the lips.
I have dry lips that get chapped even in the summers if I am not using a proper lip moisturizer and my homemade lip scrub. I keep a set of tinted lip balms handy for everyday sort of going-outs. I was lacking a pink lip balm with neutral tones that’s why I ended up buying this particular shade of lip balm from the Bright Out Loud! collection. All three shades felt superb both lip moisturizing capability wise and tint wise.
This lip balm is not too greasy like the Spiced Up! Range of Baby Lips while not too light as Baby Lips’ Electro Pop range. The staying power and pigmentation are good too. It has very freshening minty fragrance and gives slight tingly feeling to the lips immediately after application. The shade gives a natural pink to my lips which has already earned me lots of compliments as well!
- Vibrant shade with translucent colour pay-off

- Provides with enough moisture required for hot summer days

I would suggest these lip balms to every skin tone who are interested in an under 200 bucks lipbalm with an everyday sort of a lip tint. If you are starting off with makeup or want a little bit of trial-and-error with bold lip colors then this is a nice product to own.
