My first and for a time my only form of makeup was a hint of lipstick.
It’s the easiest way to brighten up a look and as Molly Ringwald so deftly demonstrated in “The Breakfast Club”, can be easily applied almost anywhere at any time. But I also tend to have chapped lips so I like to use a lip balm as well – the lip balm gets bonus points if it adds a touch of color.
I liked the smooth feel of the popular and affordable Maybelline Baby Lips lip balm. It added a nice, subtle pop of color to my lips while hydrating them for a few hours. I also liked Maybelline Color Whisper as a light lipstick. It is one of those lipsticks that you can throw in your purse and put on practically without a mirror (sometimes I just use my phone!) It also adds a little moisture to your lips, but is light. This is my first time trying Maybelline lip colors and I would definitely try Baby Lips again!
