Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes & Baby Lips Review + Giveaway

Today I'll be reviewing two of Maybelline's newest products, 'Baby Lips Lip Balm' and their 'Great Lash Lots of Lashes'. I received two of these products from BzzAgent, which I am a member of. BzzAgent is a program where people can join and try out new products and spread the word of the products through word of mouth. Since I love beauty products I was really excited when I got invited to join this campaign. I have been wanting to try both products since I am always on the lookout for a new lip balm (my current favorite is Cover Girl's Nature Luxe Balm), and the Lots of Lashes mascara claims to reach all of your lashes, even the ones in the corners!

I also also giving away one of each of the products I have reviewed!

I got to try the Great Lash Lots of Lashes in Very Black, and I love how the packaging displays the new applicator to show how it can cover all of your lashes, nothing better than seeing the product before buying it. Coming from a girl with small lashes to begin with I was really excited to see if this mascara really worked. Like usual I would apply the mascara by sweeping the brush from the root to the tip of my lashes, and sure enough the applicator did its job. Not only did it glide right through my longer lashes, the applicator was able to grab the smaller lashes in the corner of my eye. Overall I would buy this mascara since it is on the cheaper side (around $6) and it definitely helps that it is the only one that actually reaches the small lashes on the corner of my eyes. I think that this mascara is right for everyday occasions and not necessarily a special occasion unless you like the natural look since the mascara didn't give much volume so a 4.5/5.

For the Baby Lips Balm, I tried out the Peach Kiss one, which has a tinted peach color along with some shimmer. When I first opened the balm, the first thing I wanted to do was to smell it since I love when lip glosses/balms come scented. It has a small hint of peach which isn't overbearing but is just subtle enough to notice. I wasn't particularly fond of the shimmer since I prefer that to be on my lip gloss as opposed to a balm. If you aren't fond of the colors that Baby Lips come in, don't fret because the Quenched or Peppermint variety goes on clear and without shimmer. I did love how light the balm itself was when I applied it to my lips. And lets not forget that the lip balm also has an SPF of 20, great for when you are out in the sun. Overall I would give this a 3/5, its great but still not as good as my current favorite mentioned above. The price of the lip balm is around $3.99, but I found it at Target for $3.49 and there are always sales at CVS so you can probably snag one of these for around $2 if you are lucky!

Hope everyone enjoyed my review on the products and now its your turn to try them yourself! I am giving away (1) Maybelline Great Lash Lots of Lashes in Very Black and (1) Maybelline Baby Lips in Peppermint or Pink Punch (your choice if you want a clear or tinted balm).
