When Maybelline Baby Lips launched here in the UK last summer, it was really very exciting because people had gone wild for them in the US and we just couldn’t wait to get. Since then the US has seen the launch of Maybelline Baby Lips Electro which are the same moisturising Lip Balm format but with a neon kick. These are coming to the UK in August 2014, so when I was in New York last week, I picked up a few to try out.
The formula of these, like the original Baby Lips, is really lovely – they are silky, glossy and super nourishing with their Shea Butter and Vitamin E. Electro Baby Lips offer a more intense hit of colour which I have to say is really rather good.
I have swatched the three shades I picked up for you here – Pink Shock 70, Strike A Rose 95, and Berry Bomb 80 – however, the shades look less intense on my arm than they do on my lips. Fear not though; scroll down for lip swatches of each one.

Although I thought I was going to love Strike A Rose the most, Pink Shock has actually stolen the show for me! I love it. It has a lovely opacity to it and really brightens up my complexion. There are 6 shades in the Electro range in total.
As I said, Maybelline Baby Lips Electro are already out in the US, and are making their way to the UK for August. Exciting! Keep checking Boots.
