I recently bought all three of these because I've got extremely chapped lips, especially in the winter, and I feel like these were the most hyped up lip balms in the beauty community, so I had to try them. And I'm back to give you the rundown on them! I already had a bunch of lip balms, but you can't have like 1 lip balm, you have to have 92653945. Duh. ♥
EOS LiPBALM iNDiViDUAL REViEW ♥
I got the light pink one, it's Strawberry Sorbet, I believe, for 6$, and it smells amazing. I love it, I'm always opening it and smelling it, haha :) It moisturized pretty well when used routinely, but as soon as I interrupted the usage, my lips got dry again. The package was really cute, but seeing as I bring lip balm in all of my classes, and I'm more of a pocket instead of a purse girl, it was unpractical, it created huge bumps and it rolled around a lot. It looks good enough on lips, just a light dewy effect.

BABY LiPS LiP BALM iNDiViDUAL REViEW ♥
I got the Peppermint one, it's green with purple writing, for 5.50$. I thought it smelt quite plain, and I didn't like it too much as it smells a lot like this cold medicine everyone uses, so it could be a bit annoying. Luckily, it wasn't too strong. It moisturized okay, I didn't like it too much. I didn't see a noticeable difference in my lips. Also, whenever I put it on, it made my lips grainy, and I think that's because of the exfoliating ingredient was shredding up my skin? Idk, it wasn't pleasant. The packaging was adorable and practical, A+ on that, Maybelline.

SMiTH'S SALVE LiP BALM iNDiViDUAL REViEW
I got the Strawberry one, which is the red packaging, and the Rosebud one, which is the blue packaging, and it cost me 8$ for one, 16$ for two. They both smell amazing, the Strawberry one is very sweet and smells really strong, while the Rosebud one is more delicate, and not as strong. The moisture is great, it moisturizes instantly and it takes a while to sink in, which is great, you don't have to be reapplying all the time. The packaging was ok. I liked how they looked kind of old-timey. There are two packages, the pot and the tube. the pot was unpractical, as you have to dip your fingers in and then you've got germs on your hands and blah. the tube, was better, but I always look awkward when applying with a tube lol. But the package was super cute.

If I had to rank these, Baby Lips would be in 3rd place, EOS in 2nd and Smith's and easy 1st. I will definitely be repurchasing the smith's one, it's my favorite lip balm I've come across in a while.

Hope this helped,
