Maybelline lip balms are of the same tube size with similar click thingy on the
bottom to dispense the product. However, I noticed that unlike Maybelline,
Carmex’s packaging is having a hard time to retract any excess product. Note to self: Be
mindful in twisting the bottom part. As for the packaging, Maybelline directed more effort to making their lip balm more appealing to younger market while
Carmex sticked to their simple and classic yellow-red color scheme – almost
like saying let the product speak for itself. 🙂
There is a rather material difference in price considering that they are of the same size and amount of product.
Carmex and Maybelline costs Php110 and Php 80 respectively. So far, I only saw
Carmex products being sold in Landmark, Suesh branches and PNC at Festival Mall, Alabang
while Maybelline is available in almost all SM Department Stores and Watsons.
be used before lipstick application as it will not hinder the color to adhere
to the lips. Whereas, Carmex, is a bit heavier, waxier in comparison and
needs to be removed before applying any color product on the lips so as to let
the very pigment to stain the lip – Carmex tends to create a barrier between
the lips and any other product.
So overall, I’d say that Carmex, still, is my lips ultimate hero. Love it to bits! 🙂
How about you? What/who is your lips’ savior?
P.S Another reader requested for a “Product Arena” post on Carmex and my recently reviewed, Lucas Papaw (Read review HERE). Unfortunately, I won’t be giving in to such request. Only because those two products are quite different. Carmex IS a lip balm whereas Lucas Papaw CAN be used as one though it’s not limited to such purpose. 🙂
