When I saw YouTube being flooded with Maybelline Baby Lips Electro reviews, I felt jealous because they were not launched in India by then. We were only able to access those basic classic edition ones which seemed little too waxy for my taste. They too were tinted, but they lacked the colour intensity as that in the Electro range.
And then the beams of grace seeped into India and Indian beauties were granted with gifts of Maybelline Electro Pop (sorry for being too dramatic, hyper active I guess). Before the advertisement was aired, I found my eyes rest on an Electro Pop lip balm in a drugstore. I was shocked!! Instantly I laid my hands on it. There were two shades available- Oh So Orange, and Fierce and Tangy. I detest yellow, so I paid for Oh So Orange.
Consider it fortunate, because after a month I lost it and got a chance to buy a new color. Now I aimed to buy the Pink Shock. After searching two to four shops, I became a happy owner of Pink Shock. When I first applied it on my lips, I was amazed!! It gave of colour which no other lip balm in Indian market could have provided. When I started using it, I was asked which lip balm it was that I applied (but I really never disclosed :p ).
This shade has got maximum intensity in comparison to the other three shades that were launched. It is not too waxy but moisturizes well. The colour of this lip balm is more than that of a lip balm but it cannot replace a lipstick. It has instilled a wave among school and college goers who are not yet into lipsticks. It is a beautiful pink. Unlike the ‘Oh So Orange’, ‘Fierce and Tangy’ and ‘Berry Bomb’; the colour does show up on pigmented lips. The colour can be build upon with multiple swipes. Retail price is Rs 165.
RATING- 4.5 out of 5
P.S. I broke my lip balm stick while clicking a picture with colour swipe. To minimize the effects I placed it in freezer!! LOL
