LOVE this lipstick. I'm an NC40 and it's just a really nice everyday slightly mauve-ish/pinkish MLBB color. Nothing but good things to say. It feels wonderful, has great pigmentation, applies beautifully and lasts nicely. I recommend this to others and would repurchase.

This lipstick is small. For the price you're paying, you don't get a lot of product. The packaging is adorable. 1 lippie off for expensive price compared to the amount of product you're given.

The coverage is sheer, much to its line's description. I like the sheerness. I like the fact that I can reapply it without a mirror and not have to worry about messing it up. The smell is delicious. The color suits my skin (I'm a MAC C2/NC15-20. Definitely looks great for an everyday look IMO. It lasts pretty long for me too considering the coverage you're dealing with here. It usually lasts more than 2 hours for me then I'd have to reapply. If you aren't drinking/eating, it would last longer. I tried this with and without lip pencils (by the way, MAC Dervish is great pairing with this lip stick).

Second lippie off because it's slightly drying for me. For some reason, my lips are dry by themselves and this lipstick doesn't provide much moisture for me. I'm not too concerned with this because I like using chapstick underneath lip pencil/lip stick anyway. But still, it would be a lot better if it's more moisturizing.

Overall the quality is pretty good sans the drying part. I wish it would be less expensive. I definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a soft, sheer pink color on their lips to wear everyday.

Baby Lips is a creamy-feeling yet oddly drying warm pink shade on my C4/NC30 light tan asian complexion. This pink is too light to look natural on my pigmented lips (Nars Dolce Vita is my MLBB), but I mix it with a little Vaseline for moisture and apply with a brush on days when I want a lighter pink lip with subtle peach tones. I don't reach for it often, but it smells good and I can make it work. It's just ok.

I wanted a nice pretty shiny MLBB for every day. I was recommended this shade and I purchased it after it was applied in the store. When I got back home, the shade wasn't as 'soft' as I wanted to be and that's ok. The worse part is that the lipstick turned bad after 4 months! The waxy crayon smell was really strong and the texture was not smooth. It had uneven application and soft/hard pockets. :(

My Skin:
I'm combination-oily with a bit of acne. I did have a few years of being acne free but that's long gone. I do react badly to chemical sunscreen and my skin is prone to break-outs to certain ingredients. I can guess you can say my skin is sensitive!
I'm a NC25, Shu 774 (winter) or 764 (summer), and Shiseido O20. I have golden undertones so most brands do not match me. They're either too pink or too peachy.

Product Characteristics (Colour or Textures):
This is meant as a MLBB shade with a sheery shiny texture. With the name Baby lips, I guess it's to evoke the idea of brand new fresh skin that says 'youth'. On me, it didn't really bring that out. It's sheer and shiny but the colour is pulls a rosy-red on me instead of that perfect medium pink that is a true MLBB. There's no obvious shimmer or sparkles as well.

This is where I became pretty disappointed in this product. I used this occasionally in the spring and then packed it away for the summer. i pulled it out to use in September and I found out the lipstick already turned within 4 months of use! Perhaps I got an old tube or one that has been sitting a while but this was VERY disappointing! The waxy crayon scent was very obvious and the texture was off. It had uneven colour application and some of it felt harder (not quite waxy but close). Very disappointing!

This was $20 and comparing against most ME/HE brands, it's darn affordable.

Why I Like it:
The colour wasn't a true MLBB but it was pretty for everyday use.

Why I don't like it:
It turned within 4 months and became a crayon :(

Would I buy it again?
No... it turned so quickly. Perhaps I had a bad tube but this was not a good lipstick.

This is a a sheer creamy formula in a warm pink that matches my lip color exactly. Usually I wear much more saturated colors that make my dark blue eyes pop. Nude colors usually make me look like a zombie. I consider this my nude when wearing a smoky eye. The texture is very light and moisturizing. Lasting power is so so but this is one of those lip products you can apply w/o a mirror. Unfortunately, this color does not have the ability the leave a slight stain behind such as LM's sheer lipsticks in sexy lips, healthy lips, and tender lips. Slight vanilla cake smell.

I thought this would be a little paler and more of a soft natural pink fleshy kind of colour. On my lips it's just like the colour in the tube - like a burgundy dark kind of colour. Too dark, sorry but I've never seen babies with lips this red.

This is by far my most favourite lipstick. I have used many colours and many different brands and keep coming back to LM Baby Lips. Works well with my medium beige asian skin and black hair. Only downside is that it's got medium staying power. Would give it an extra lippie if it lasted longer. Still, my favourite by far!

This is the first LM product I have purchased, and I am very pleased. Baby Lips is a sheer pink lippie that is meant to make your lips look like...well, baby lips. I am extremely fair (BB foundations in Alabaster). My lips, however, are decently pigmented. Thus, on me, I can't say it really gives me the look of "baby lips", but it is a beautiful MLBB healthy, pink color. Others have described it as pinky/beige. I don't see any beige at all, but it is a fairly neutral, medium pink (no overly cool or warm tones). If you are a cool PPP like me, for instance, then try it out--it won't wash you out! There is no shimmer, but it does have a slight sheen when applied.

It applies smoothly and feels comfortable; it isn't a lipstick that will dry out your lips (though it isn't hydrating/moisturizing either). It will not last for hours and hours; it is, after all, sheer. If this is a problem for you, make sure you pair it with a lip liner. Someone mentioned it having a horrible taste/smell. I haven't noticed this at all (bad tube, maybe?). The packaging is classy, too.

Overall, I must say I'm surprised at the poor ratings for this product. If it sounds like something for you, definitely try it before you listen to some of the negative reviews on here.

Wonderful color! As for the formula, I love how creamy and moisturizing the formula is, a must for my incredibly dry and flaky lips. The only other lipstick I have ever been able to wear is MAC in the Lustre formula. In comparison, I would say that the LM lippie is more creamy, but each is about the same opacity. I wish the color range was larger!

Would definitely purchase again.
