Spotted: Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Collection

It's been almost six months since my first post about the Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Collection, and I'm delighted to tell you that it has finally landed! Many thanks to reader @efisch131 on Instagram for letting me know that she spotted all six shades at her local Harmon this week. Take a look!

Maybelline Baby Lips Crystal Lip Balms in Pink Quartz and Twinkling Taupe
(retail: around $3.50 each at Harmon and Bed Bath & Beyond)

I've also heard from several readers who have spotted these at Bed Bath & Beyond over the past few days. Harmon and Christmas Tree Shops are both subsidiaries of BB&B so, if you're looking for these, you might want to check those stores if you have them in your area. But I'm positive these will start to pop up elsewhere in the coming weeks.

There are six shades in this collection. Keep reading to see the other four...

So the burning questions:

Why are they called "Crystal"? Well you can kind of see in these pics that the sticks appear to be translucent, as opposed to opaque like other Baby Lips lip balms. So they're...crystal-like. Also, I've heard from some readers who have mentioned that these are "shimmery" and I've also heard them described as "sparkly". I'm not sure if they actually contain glitter or shimmer though (maybe some of you who already own them can confirm!).

Are they limited edition? It appears that they are NOT limited edition. I don't see the words "limited edition" printed on the packaging (like these) and I don't believe the words "limited edition" appear anywhere on the counter display for this collection. As you can see above, Harmon has these hanging on regular racks. 

Thanks so much for the great sighting and pics, @efisch131. I really appreciate it!

  1. I'm intrigued by the mauve and the taupe just because you don't see that too often with lip tints. If they're sparkly, though, they'll be a pass.

    2. VadIsRad on youtube just uploaded a video showing swatches of all 6 shades and they don't appear to be over-shimmery

    3. Same here, not interested if there is shimmer or sparkles. Oh well. Plenty of other goodies coming out to look forward to!

  2. If I'm seeing things correctly, on the bottom of the 'Beam of Blush' package it says "Vitamin E & Hint of Shimmer". Maybe you can enlarge that picture, G, and confirm that's what it says (or if you can read/speak French you can translate what it says. I do believe 'brillance' would mean 'shimmer' in English?)

    1. The French means something more like hint of lustre or shine but I think it clearly says shimmer in English too.

  6. Saw these in Bed Bath and Beyond here in Pittsburgh PA along with a lot of the new Maybelline products, the Leather Color Tattoos are not labeled limited edition either! -

  7. I actually found these and bought the taupe shade. It's shimmery, definitely, even a touch sparkly. It's pretty, though, kind of a peachy-caramel shade. These have a stronger scent, though, a bit more baby powder-ish. I was a bit surprised by that, but it's not bad.

  8. Thought of trying the Baby Lips line before... but now I'm all into the natural Burt's Bees balms... the tinted ones specifically

  10. i found these at bed bath and beyond today! i got clear -lemon lime scent that is similar to the original quenched, coral -grapefruit scent and pink quartz -starbursty/fruity scent. the shimmer is more like glitter and i although i love the scents and colors, i was hoping the shimmer would be a little more subtle :(

  11. For anyone that is interested Target online has Baby Lips for $2 each with a temporary price cut. The original line, the Electro line and the Dr. line. I got 8 of them with 5% off and free shipping with my Target Red debit card for $16.04. All colors are available as of right now.
