Maybelline Baby Lips Coral Crush: Is it permanent now?

So back in November of 2013, I reviewed the Baby Lips Limited Edition shade Coral Crush (which is yummy--it smells like orange Starburst candy). I haven't seen it in drugstores since late 2013/early 2014, but reader Caitlin let me know that she recently spotted it at Walgreens:

My question for you: have YOU seen Coral Crush at your local drugstores recently? The one I purchased back in November was in a two-pack that said "Limited Edition" on the label, but I know that, at that time, Maybelline also released single versions (like the one above) that did NOT say "limited edition" on the labels. So I'm wondering if this one above is a carry-over from the old display, or if Coral Crush is in fact a new addition to the permanent Baby Lips line. Help us solve this mystery, dear readers!

Thanks again for the sighting, Caitlin!

PS: I checked the Maybelline, Ulta and Target websites and, as of the time of this post, none of those sites have Coral Crush listed in the regular Baby Lips line.


  1. I so hope that Coral Crush has been made permanent, it'd be a dream come true for me. This is my all time favorite shade, I've gone through three tubes that I stockpiled while it was out last year.

  2. I saw one of that limited edition run somewhere, at either Walgreens or Rite Aid. There were five originally, I think: Yummy Plummy, Pink Wink, Twinkle, Coral Crush and Melon Mania. I think the one I saw was Coral Crush but I thought it was something leftover from when they came out in 2012. I'd totally love it if they added these to the permanent line. I loved Yummy Plummy, Coral Crush and Melon Mania in particular. I liked that run a lot better than the Crystal or the Dr. Rescue balm offerings. (Though the neons are awesome, IMO.)

  3. I would be thrilled if this is true. It's my favorite!

    1. Me too! I will be checking next time I'm shopping for sure.

  4. I've seen it at Walmart for a while now.

  5. I've only seen it at one Walgreens store and was wondering the same thing because I have not seen it anywhere else and was also under the impression it had been LE. Of course, I bought it right away just in case :D

  6. If its not a permanent, it should be. It's my favorite. But haven't seen it in stores...

  7. I saw it at Walgreens and was super confused! Now I'm wishing I had picked it up

  8. I hope so - this is my favorite too and my one and only tube is almost gone!

  9. I'm not really into baby lips but I want to give the coral crush one a try!

  10. My stores here in CA have a new orange, it's the crystal one. But it doesn't have coral crush anymore :( I loved using that one with a bit of the Dr.lips nude one on the middle of my lips. The best peach color ever!

  11. I saw it at a CVS that didn't have any limited edition displays anywhere.
