My first candy wow lip balm was the variant Raspberry. I was so impressed with the quality and stylish packaging that now I have got a second variant – Mixed Berry. These lip balms are available in five variants- Raspberry, Mixed Berry, Orange, Cherry and Peach. While I was still using the first one my baby sister was so bowled over with different packaging that she bought all five of them. If you are a lip balm lover, I am sure you too will love the looks of these cuties, but to know about the quality keep reading.

My take on ‘Maybelline Baby Lips Candy Wow Mixed Berry Lip Balm’
Maybelline candy wow lip balms have got chubby & tall looks. They look like crayons and are based on retractable mechanism. Though most of the lip balm sticks are retractable these days but what differentiates candy wow from other lip balms is the huge size. I find them quite eye catching and flamboyant, and that is also one of the reasons why I like repurchasing them. But you should not feel deceived by the big size as the lip balm quantity in this chubby tube is slightly less than what is housed in the regular baby lips lip balms. Also, candy wow’s price is higher than regular baby lips and I think the looks might have been the main reason behind this price increase. Nonetheless, these darlings look great and stay put no matter in how deep a pile I put them into.
It is a violet color bullet that leaves pretty light pink-lemonade tint on my lips. Being a lip gloss it also has some shine to it. Just two swipes of the gloss provide prominent pop of color. On everyday basis, when I am not in mood of applying lipsticks I put on a tinted lip gloss and I feel good to go. The five variants of Candy wow lip glosses have different shades, and they very well suffice to my basic necessity of a tinted lip gloss.
Mixed berry shade has yummy fragrance with sweet and tangy flavors. The moment cap is detached I can smell the lovely fragrance that stays on couple of minutes after the application. The fragrance makes me nostalgic by reminding me of the jelly candies I used to savor a lot, and for that reason I wish it could have stayed for a little long time. However, I do not mind smelling the gloss time and again to go back to that nostalgia.
The lip balm is enriched with Vitamin E, which is considered a very good ingredient for skin. I think it because of that that it feels very light and nourishing. It keeps the lips hydrated and moisturized for good 4 hours after which it needs re-application. Even with meals the tint does not fade away completely but I always prefer to reapply for fresh look. It does get transfer to brims of cups but that does not lead to loss of color on the lips. Also, if kept in hot weather the bullet starts kind of melting as I see a lot of product is accumulated on the tip. However, since I have started keeping it in fridge I do not see any such accumulation.
