Baby Lips Electros: Pink Shock, Oh Orange, Berry Bomb

(From left to right: Minty Sheer, Berry Bomb, Fierce 'n Tangy, Strike a Rose, and Pink Shock)

You've probably heard that there is more than one set of Baby Lips. (If you read the review right beneath this one, then you already know all of this!) 
For those that haven't, there are 3 sets of Baby Lips: Original, Spring Special Edition, and Electro. 
While the only way to get the special editions are to dish out some cash on Amazon, right now is the best time to buy the Electro collection- while you can. 

"Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm provides clinical care with a neon kick, plus visibly renewed lips. In just one week, 88% had smoother lips; 82% had less dry lips; 70% had more supple lips; and 83% had better-looking lips.

Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Lip Balm:

  • No more basic lip balm!
  • Clinical care with a neon kick
  • 8-hour moisture"
-Maybelline Description from their website

The ones I managed to grab at the local Ulta are Pink Shock (sheer hot pink) Oh! Orange! (light orange) and Berry Bomb (purple), but there are 3 more in the collection: Fierce and Tangy (yellow, clear, smells like Quenched), Minty Sheer (green and clear, mint), and Strike a Rose (orangey-pink). 

Pink Shock

Pink Shock is probably the most pigmented of the bunch. Seriously! You just need one quick swipe and BAM! 
The scent is kinda hard to pinpoint- somewhat fruity, but sweet, like candy. I can't think of a way to describe it. I guess you'll have to try it for yourself!!

Oh! Orange!

If you're not a fan of citrus, then Oh! Orange! may not be the best for you. Despite not really liking oranges, I luuuuuurrve the smell of any citrus. (Particularly lemons and oranges!) It's pretty much a sharp, tangy mix of lemon and orange- it's definitely amazing! 

On the tint side of things, it's definitely less tinted than Pink Shock, and closer to your skin tone. (I pretty much have the lightest skin tone possible, besides an albino elephant, so I'm just speaking for myself. :P)

Berry Bomb 

I have to say that the scent of Berry Bomb is one of the best of all the Baby Lips. While it's sweet, it still manages to pull of the fruity, berry flavor. I was kind of nervous about it- everything purple that I have ever sniffed smells like that disgusting Tylenol grape. *shudders*
And anything berry smells like that horrifying Tylenol berry-cherry.  *shudders even more* Thank the world, this smells nothing like either of the two, or like Grapevine and Cherry Me. (If you like the taste of Tylenol, I advise you buy those instead.)

As for pigmentation, it's more of a light magenta than purple. Less pigmentation than Pink Shock, and about the same as Oh! Orange!.


Overall Ratings:
Scent: 4
Package: 5!! (The words are printed on the stick instead- and the neon and black is adorkable!)
Price: $2.97-$3.99 (same product, depends where you buy it) 
Durability- n/a
Where to buy: Walmart, Target (online only), Ulta. (Ulta is probably your best bet- the most expensive, but they have a good supply) 
Likes: Packaging, scents. 
Wishes: That it's a little less pigmented. 

So, the overall rating is- 4.2!
