Flavors: Grape Vine and Peppermint. The Grape Vine is dead on grape soda or grape medicine or grape suckers. Or anything that's flavored grape besides actual grapes (why is it that real grapes don't ever smell or taste like artificial grape?). If you like artificial grape flavorings, you'll definitely like this! I don't like grape flavored anything, except actual grapes, so I wasn't a huge fan. The Peppermint was also a bit of a let down, it smells like peppermint but it's very, very weak. When you're a huge peppermint fan like me, you want your peppermint balms to be nice and strong!
Wear: These go on very smooth and they're super moisturizing! The Peppermint goes on clear as it has no color. The Grape Vine has a very light purple/dark red tint to it. Both balms make my lips feel really nourished and smooth.

Packaging: These balms come in tubes that are vibrant in color. They have clear caps with 'BABY LIPS' written all over it in a big font. The cap covers up the whole tube instead of the cap just being a small part at the top. The tubes, although the same weight as your average lip balm tube, are a bit thicker and longer than your average lip balm tube.
Price: $3 to $4, which isn't too bad for a lip balm or lip color.
Pros: Flavors, Wear, Packaging, Price
Cons: Weak peppermint scent
Rating: 3.5 out of 5 twists, Maybelline Baby Lips will always be a balm I have to have in my stash, but it's usually not my go-to balm. When I want a little bit of color, then I head for the Baby Lips, otherwise I like using my balms from Etsy.
