My Experience With Maybelline Baby Lips Electro Pop Lip Balm Oh! Orange!:
The packaging of Maybelline Baby lips is same as their Electro Pop series. It comes in a black plastic casing with a transparent cap. It has orange accents to it and the lip balm slightly peeps out from the tube. This is one concern I have with the packaging of the product because the lip balm is easily tipped off from the top while capping or uncapping it. Otherwise, the packaging is catchy, lightweight and easy to travel with.
Coming to the shade "Oh! Orange!", it has orange tint as the name suggests. The pack says it has vibrant neon color but honestly the tint is gaudy or loud. In fact, the tint is extremely light and won't help much if you have pigmented lips. On my lips, it gives a faint tint of orange but it is so light that my camera could not capture it well. Even if you apply underneath lip colors, it won't alter the lip color at all.
The texture of the lip balm is slightly different than any quintessential Baby Lips. It has a very light yet moisturizing layer which isn't very rich. Having said that, the lip balm is meant to protect the soft layer of the lips but it will not be enough to heal or cure the dry chapped lips. The smell of the lip balm is slightly tangy, resembling the name of the product. I often use this lip balm underneath liquid matte lipsticks and it really helps to prime and protect the lips from getting patchy and uneven after long hours. Maybelline Baby Lips generally have SPF but this Electro Pop version doesn't have which is a big con because nowadays every lip balm comes with SPF.
The hydrating factor of the lip balm is slightly low. Also, it only moisturizes the lips for around 3 to 4 hours maximum and after which my lips starts to feel little dry. Since I have dry lips throughout the year, I always require a heavy duty lip balm that would heal and moisturize the lips at the same time.

This is a nice and cute lip balm but not a necessary one. The color versions of Baby Lips are better than this one and the Candy Wow as well. Thus, I would say you can skip this particular one without SPF.
