Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow lip pencils are new variation of the beloved Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm that was launched in Asia – Australia around June this year (2015), which just entered Indonesia recently.
I found these gems last Sunday at Watson Gading Serpong.
There are six colors based on fruit flavours available:
- Mixed Berry
However, I did not see the Cherry and the Lychee flavours on the shelves. It is either the store ran out of them or it does not enter Indonesia. Hence, I am gonna share with you the other 4 flavours on this post.
Candy Wow Lip Balm punya 6 pilihan warna yang diciptakan berdasarkan rasa buah:
- Mixed Berry
Just like the other Baby Lips lip balms, Candy Wow is tinted lip balm that moisturized your lips with sheer colors.
- Similar with the regular Maybelline Baby Lips balm, it is light but moisturizing on the lips
- It applies smoothly
- Scented with light or inoffensive fruity scents that are similar to its names.
- has glossy finish
- not sticky
- Giver you the sheer-pop of colour
As for the longevity, it lasts only so long you can expect from a lip balm. Also, it transfers when you eat and drink.
Cherry *(new update)
Comparison with other Lip Color Balm (for Indonesian readers)
Kategori ini didesain secara khusus untuk memberikan sentuhan warna yang ngepop tapi sheer. Jadi kita gak bakalan dapat kualitas pigmen yang pekat seperti Silky Girl Lip Color Balm atau My Favourite Things Lip Balm-nya Emina. Namun, secara kualitas, jika dibandingkan dengan kedua brand diatas, Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow lebih melembabkan bibir. Kalau mau diurutin, secara personal saya lebih suka Candy Wow, karena saya tidak suka warna yang terlalu mentereng; baru sesudah itu Emina – dengan warna Library Queen – diurutan kedua, dan.Silky Girl terakhir, karena lip balm Silky Girl gak terlalu melembabkan.
Jadi, kalau teman – teman mau cari Lip Color Balm dengan pigmentasi yang pekat, saya bakal rekomendasi Emina My Favourit Things Lip Balm. Tapi kalau kamu seperti saya, lebih mencari comfortable wear + balm formulation + subtle pop of colour, Baby Lips Candy Wow adalah produk yang kamu cari.
I am in love with these comic-book style packaging! It’s very unique and catchy. Plus, the colors are very vibrant too. So, it’s almost impossible to miss it! Just like the other Lip Balm pencils that I have reviewed on this blog, Maybelline’s Lip Balm Pencils are also color coded. So, each tube is colored according to the color of the product inside.
As for the tube itself, it is made of solid plastic, styled as a chubby-stick tube. The size is just about right that you can have a good grip when using it – not too big not too small. What I like most about this pencil is that you don’t need to sharpen the pencil. Just like Emina’s lip balm pencil, just twist up the pencil to reveal the slim round bullet.
The only turn down is the lid. It’s a bit loose, so it’s easily drop.
In Indonesia, it cost Rp 35,000.-/pc. I have checked both online and offline retail shops, they cost the same. And in Australia, they cost AUD$6.50/pc.
Here is the list of shops that sell these chubby Baby Lips Candy Wow pencils:
That’s it for my swatch and review of these Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow! I’d definitely recommend you picking up at least one shade. Hopefully the Lychee shades is sold in Indonesia, if you see it somewhere, please let me know; so I can complete my collection!
