Maybelline Baby Lips Lipgloss
These are the last four Maybelline Baby Lips Lipglosses ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.), and all four have a jelly finish. The gloss is a new formula that’s supposed to be shiny, non-sticky, and hydrating for four hours with twelve shades divided into three finishes. These all looked similar applied, so from a color standpoint, it’s unnecessary to have them all. The jelly finished shades have a slightly thicker texture to them, though they feel very similar once you apply to the lips. The formula feels lightweight, mostly non-sticky (a very slight tackiness develops after two to three hours of wear), wears for one to three hours, and is comfortable and hydrating. There is a sweet, fruity-floral scent that tastes like perfume-y soap during the entire length of wear; I could taste it just talking to someone, and it ruined anything I ate or drank. They were comfortable to wear, though, and they don’t feel heavy and keep and maintain hydration going for an hour or two after most of the gloss has worn away. The formula is sheer (as it is supposed to be) with a lot of shades looking the same once applied, but they may vary wildly from person to person due to much of it being dependent on your natural lip color.
Maybelline Coral Craze Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a subtly, orange-tinted gloss. It darkens and adds warmth to my natural lip color. It lasted for an hour on me, so I ended up wearing it a few times to ensure it was hydrating at least. Maybelline Berry Chic (P, $4.49) is brighter, less glossy. MAC Loose & Lively (LE, $22.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Maybelline Pink Pizazz Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a barely-there, pink-tinged gloss. This one darkened my natural lip color without altering it with any warmth/coolness, so it appears less reddish compared to Coral Craze. It was gone after an hour, though it was hydrating if you kept reapplying it. (By the by, that is how Maybelline spelled it.) Maybelline Tickled Pink (P, $4.49) is lighter. Maybelline Pink-a-boo (P, $4.49) is lighter. Chanel Rose Reve (189) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. Chanel Rose Reve (189) (LE, $29.50) is lighter. MAC Boundless Energy (LE, $22.00) is warmer. Maybelline Fab & Fuchsia (P, $4.49) is warmer. See comparison swatches / compare dupes side-by-side.
Maybelline Fab & Fuchsia Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium pink-tinted base with a glossy finish. It was another short-wearing shade at a whole hour for wear, but at least it was still hydrating–I just have balm that lasts longer and is more hydrating, so that’s why it’s disappointing. Sephora Collection Raspberry Punch (21) (P, $14.00) is darker, cooler. Bite Beauty Three (Watercolor) (LE, ) is lighter. NARS Glow Pink (LE, $26.00) is cooler. Urban Decay Lovechild (P, $20.00) is lighter, brighter. MAC Pure Magnificence (LE, $20.00) is lighter, warmer. Maybelline Pink Pizazz (P, $4.49) is warmer.

Maybelline Berry Chic Baby Lips Lipgloss ($4.49 for 0.18 fl. oz.) is a muted, orange-tinted gloss (not sure what’s berry about it!). This gloss wore for one and a half hours, and it was hydrating while worn. NYX Cherry Cheesecake (P, $5.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented. NARS Wonder (P, $26.00) is darker, brighter, more pigmented. Bite Beauty Eight (Watercolor) (LE, ) is more pigmented. Maybelline Citrus Evolution (115) (LE, $8.99) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented. MAC Grand Pumpkin (LE, $15.00) is lighter, brighter, more pigmented. Maybelline Coral Craze (P, $4.49) is brighter, less glossy. See comparison swatchescompare dupes side-by-side.
