Lipstick! na na ... just a lip balm, that's Maybelline Electro pop Pink Shock

By Tarry

Happy Summers girlies... 
The official Indian month of summers begins. And yes, Northern India is getting hotter. The sun seems to be trying to ensure that it fulfills its targets so that it can get an increment in March '16 :-)

By now, am sure you all know how much I love my lip balms. And I am always on a lookout for atleast one in my kitty that gives my lips a nice subtle colour with moisturisation. And when Maybelline launched Electro Pop, I was sure to try atleast two. 
You guys have read about my two cents on the Electro Pop Berry bomb here. So when recently, my Berry sweetie was coming to an end, I decided to buy another one... 
And what follows next are my four cents ....

 On the Outside
A colourful packaging. Like all of its category, this also comes in a cardboard box with transparent cover. Remove this and comes out a very cute looking cylindrical tube. Black tube, with transparent cover that has pink top, bottom and neon pink lettering. Very adorable and sturdy too. I have not seen any of my Maybelline lip balm packaging cracking.... Lovely :-)

On the Inside
Aha! and a double Aha! and some more! and some oohs too.... Okay, before I get carried over ... Lets get back to this world ;-) This one is seriously so well pigmented. Just a swipe and there is a healthy colour on the lips. Two swipes and it looks like pretty sheer pink lipstick. I wore it to an evening function the other day and everyone kept asking me what shade I was wearing. It does moisturise the lips well and does not give a waxy kind of a feel. However, the effect stays only for 4 hours and one has to reapply after that. Still... i love it so much that I don't mind <3 <3

PEL Rating
4.8 out of 5.  (No SPF is a major con for me... hope Maybelline is listening...)

PEL SHOUTS
The Maybelline Electro Pops lip Balm in Pink Shock is one of the most pigmented lip balms in the drugstore range. It is light on your pocket, has an awesome colour payoff and looks cute too. Perfect everywhere... Just wish it had some SPF too. Would have made awesome for the summers as well.
