As much as I hate to admit it, I might be too old to be carrying around some Bonne Bell chapstick. With flavors (scents?) like Vanilla Frosting and Cotton Candy, it just doesn't say "I'm a young working professional with a salary and a savings account" (<< barely a savings account). So recently I decided to find an inexpensive replacement that was maybe a bit more age appropriate. Of course, the replacement I found was called "Baby Lips" so not sure if I accomplished that mission.
I've been using Maybelline's Baby Lips for a few months and I really bought it on a whim. I happened to be in a rush and ran to the drugstore to grab any chapstick I could find. Baby Lips was inexpensive (about $3-$4) so I chose a scent that included SPF and was on my way. I used it for a few weeks and really liked how well it moisturized and the slightest hint of gloss it provided. When that stick ran out, I stopped to get more but grabbed a different scent because I like a little spice in my life guys!
To my surprise, with the new stick, I realized the scents were actually a bit pigmented too. I'm making discoveries all over the place!
(P.S. Yes, I definitely have gold-speckled Formica countertops)
So I grabbed a few colors and I've been loving them all. They're actually quite a bit pigmented but not quite the commitment that lipstick can be. I have commitment issues with lipstick. I think it stems from my childhood.
I realize this picture makes it look like a crayon but I promise it's not. I would never recommend you use a crayon on your lips. Marker maybe, but never crayon.
So there ya' have it, a chapstick recommendation from someone completely unqualified to be providing beauty product recommendations. You're welcome.
