The Maybelline Gleaming Coral Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balm is a sheer pinky coral with glitter. Gleaming Coral has a light pink package with orange writing. All of the shades in the Crystal collection have holographic confetti in the clear lids.
Lately the Baby Lips collections have been quite sheer and Gleaming Coral is no exception. It took a lot of building up to get the slightest bit of color. It does add a bit of glitter to the lips, which is the point of the Crystal collection. The glitter doesn't leave a gritty feel on the lips and Gleaming Coral has the same smooth, moisturizing feel as the other Baby Lips. Gleaming Coral has a sweet fruity scent.

The L'Oreal Pink Plush Colour Riche Caresse Lipstick is a quite sheer pale pink with no shimmer or glitter.
The Colour Riche Caresse Lipsticks come in a sleek gold tube that has the color of the product at the bottom of the lid. Although it is called a lipstick, Pink Plush is more like a tinted balm. It has a very smooth and moisturizing feel on the lips, but it does need to be built up a lot to change the color of the lips. I do like the look of this color on the lips when it's built up, it makes them lighter and adds a subtle shine, great for an everyday look.

The Maybelline Baby Lips in Rose Rush is a limited edition slightly cool toned pink shade from the new Pink'd collection. Rose Rush comes in the classic Baby Lips packaging, this time with a pink tube with darker pink writing.
Although Rose Rush looks like a fairly warm pink in the tube, it appears much more cool toned swatched on the skin and the lips. Like all of the Baby Lips, Rose Rush is sheer, but can be built up for a darker color. It gives the lips a bit of shine, but it still looks like a lip balm on the lips. Rose Rush has a fruity scent, similar to the shade Peach Kiss. It has the same, thin but moisturizing formula that all of the other Baby Lips has. This isn't the longest wearing lip balm on the market, but it has a great feel on the lips.

I have seven shades of the Maybelline Color Whispers (I also have 2 other shades, but they are limited edition) and thought I would swatch them all next to each other. If you are unfamiliar with the Maybelline Color Whispers, they are lip colors with the feel of a tinted balm and the color of a semi sheer lipstick. They can have sort of a waxy feel an hour or two after application, but other than that, the Color Whispers have a lightweight, comfortable feel on the lips.
Pin Up Peach is a warm peachy coral, it's sort of close to Made It Mauve, but it's lighter and more pink. Next is Pink Possibilities, a bright yellow based pink. It's close to Faint For Fuchsia, but it is much more yellow and warmer. Made It Mauve is a warm brown nude, that is the closest to Pin Up Peach. Who Wore It Red-er is a bright pink red that isn't like any of the other colors. Faint For Fuchsia is a cool toned pink that is pretty close to the next shade, Mad For Magenta. Faint For Fuchsia is lighter and a little more cool toned than Mad For Magenta. Lastly is Oh La Lilac, a light lilac pink. It's similar to Faint For Fuchsia, but noticeable lighter and more purple.

The Nyx Butter Lip Balm in Parfait is a bright yellow-based pink tinted lip balm. Since the Nyx Butter Glosses are one of my favorite products, I had to try their Butter Lip Balms!
For a tinted lip balm, Parfait has amazing pigmentation. Even with its thin, balmy formula, Parfait manages to have full coverage color. Although it has the name Butter Lip Balm, I don't find Parfait to apply very smooth or creamy. In fact, I only find Parfait to be averagely moisturizing. I'm conflicted about my final verdict on this product, because I like the pigmentation and color, but it should feel moisturizing since it is a lip balm. I don't think this product is bad, but I have other products to go to when I want to add color to my lips, and plenty of other lip balms that work better.
Fresh Sugar Passion, Rose, Cherry, Petal, Berry, Honey & Sugar Shine Lip Treatment (Sugar Treasures Set) | Review & Swatches
The Fresh Sugar Treasures Set comes with deluxe sizes of the Sugar Passion, Rose, Cherry, Petal, Berry & Honey lip treatments and a deluxe size of the Sugar Shine lip treatment. While this set is no longer available, each individual product can be purchased in a full sized version.
The Fresh Sugar Passion Lip Treatment is a sheer, warm berry color that isn't very dark. Passion comes in a berry colored tube. Passion's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
The Fresh Sugar Rose Lip Treatment is a sheer red color in a pale purple tube. Rose gives more of a tint as opposed to a sheer color like the others. Rose's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
The Fresh Sugar Cherry Lip Treatment is a sheer classic red color in a red tube. Cherry's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
The Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment is a slightly peachy gloss in a clear tube and a brown lid. Sugar Shine has a classic doe foot applicator. Sugar Shine has a thin formula that feels like a balm in liquid form. Sugar Shine gives off a little more gloss than the balm colors.
The Fresh Sugar Petal Lip Treatment is a sheer peachy neutral pink in a pinky purple tube. Petal's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
The Fresh Sugar Berry Lip Treatment is a sheer warm purple in a purple tube. Berry is much more purple than Passion. Berry's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
The Fresh Sugar Honey Lip Treatment in Honey is a warm peachy nude in a light beige tube. Honey's formula and scent is consistent with the rest of the balms and a review will be at the bottom.
All of these lip treatments have the same amazing scent. To me, it is a very nice rose scent that isn't too sweet or too floral, I think that this is a scent that everyone would like. Even without the wonderful scent, I would still love these because they have an amazing formula. The Fresh Sugar Lip Treatments feel extremely thick, moisturizing and luxurious, unlike any other lip balm, butter or treatment I have used. They provide a nice amount of color to the lips and have a balmy shine to them. The Sugar Shine Lip Treatment feels like the normal ones in the tube, but in a thinner liquid form, it isn't sticky and adds a subtle shine.

The Maybelline Color Whisper in Made It Mauve is a warm, neutral darker pink color that is semi-sheer. In my opinion this is more of a berry color than a mauve and I do not see a lot of purple in this shade.
Made It Mauve is a really pretty, flattering color that I think works great in the fall or winter, but could also work in the spring or summer. Just dabbing the color on the lips can create a really pretty natural lip color that is just a little darker. You can also apply it all over the lips for a great darker lip color that is not too much of a statement.
Made It Mauve has a lightweight feel, which is something I look for in a lip product. Made It Mauve is not a full coverage lip color, as the Color Whisper line is more along the lines of a semi-sheer balm-like lip color. Made It Mauve has a little bit of shine to it, so it still looks natural on the lips. I find that Made It Mauve lasts for about two hours on before needing to be reapplied, but since it is not a super pigmented lip color, it is easy to apply on the go with or without a mirror.

The Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter in Sorbet is a bright pink with a yellow undertone. While the Revlon Lip Butters are designed to be a more sheer product, Sorbet is really easily built up to a nearly opaque pink color.
The Revlon Lip Butters are in a usual twist up tube and the product is cut flat and angled at the top. I find the product to be quite thick and this can make it a bit difficult to apply on small lips (like mine). That aside, I like the packaging of the Lip Butters. They have a long lid that are colored similar to the product inside.
Sorbet has the moisture of a lip balm and the pigmentation of a semi-sheer lipstick. Sorbet it buildable for a pretty, bright pink, but can also be worn in a more subtle way. Sorbet has a nice shine to it when built up, but isn't very shiny when lightly applied. Sorbet's color lasted for 2-3 hours on me before needing to be applied again.
Maybelline Baby Lips Dr Rescue Medicated Balm in Just Peachy, Pink Me Up, Berry Soft & Soothing Sorbet
Price: $3 * Buy At: Walmart * Size: 4.4 g / 0.15 fl oz
The Medicated Dr Rescue line is Maybelline's newest take on the Baby Lips line. Today I have the shades Pink Me Up, Just Peachy, Berry Soft and Soothing Sorbet. Just Peachy is a light peach, Pink Me Up is a cool toned sheer pink, Soothing Sorbet is a warm berry & Berry Soft is a plum.
These Baby Lips have the same smooth, moisturizing formula, but they do smell much different than the traditional ones. Since these are medicated, they smell sort of like Vick's vapor rub. It doesn't bother me, but it may bother people who aren't a fan of the Vick's vapor rub smell. They also have a slight cooling feel on the lips, this goes away within 30 minutes. As pigmentation goes, Pink Me Up was sheer, but it was quite glossy. Just Peachy was more pigmented than Pink Me Up, but not as glossy.
The pigmentation of the Dr Rescue line is consistent with the original Baby Lips line, but not as pigmented as the Electro line. Just Peachy was surprisingly pigmented and adds a really nice light peach color to the lips. Pink Me Up was the least pigmented, but was a little glossier than the others. Soothing Sorbet was nice as well, adding a sheer berry tint. Berry Soft was pigmented, but if you have pigmented lips, than this one won't show up as much.
