I love lip balms and hoard them like crazy. This one was my purchase from a neighborhood shop when I was in a hurry and I just picked it up and ran. These balms are pretty much inexpensive, so I like it.
Price and Quantity:
Rs. 129 for 4.8 gm
The packaging of the product is simple – a blister package revealing a red tube which is quite easy to find and a long cap making it difficult to open up involuntarily at any time. Good for the times when you are going on a long trip or something.
The lip balm bullet is dark red in color, but applies sheer red on your lips with very tiny shimmers on it. The texture is not very smooth or very drying, just right to make my lips look shimmery and pretty without going over the top. It has a nice, light, berry smell, which is nice, and does not taste of anything. On my lips the shimmers does not show much, but they do tend to settle on my lip lines.
Unlike most other Nivea lip balms, this one does not keep my lips hydrated for long. In fact, the effect starts wearing out after 1-1.5 hours on my lips, and my lips feel dry slightly, and I need to reapply. Although the stain itself is flattering, I don’t like the way the shimmers stick to my lips later.
- Travel friendly
- Nice transparent color with a hint of red
- Applies nicely
- Smells good
- Staying power is low
- Shimmers sticking to my lips
So I don’t use this as often I would want to, although the concept of a tinted lip balm is appealing.
