Nivea Lip Care in Pink Start and Glamorous Gloss Natural

Hello Angels,

I want to confess that by each passing day, I am falling in love with IMBB more and more. Today, I am going to review lip glosses from the Nivea Lip Care range.

Nivea Lip Care in Pink Start and Glamorous Gloss natural

What the Website Claims:

The innovative formula of Nivea Glamorous Gloss, with ultra shine pigments and exotic scents, brings dazzling shine to your lips and provide long lasting moisturization and care.

What it Does?

  • Dazzling lips with stunning brilliance thanks to ultra shine pigments.
  • Delights your senses with exotic scents.
  • Contains SPF 15 to help protect against UVA and UVB rays.
  • Result: Soft moisturized lips with a dazzling shine

Price and Quantity:

Rs. 150 or 175 (I don’t remember exactly) for 10 ml.

Shelf Life:

Not mentioned (shock!!)

Ingredients:

Not mentioned, (couldn’t find on the website as well).

These are the tubes that I own:

My Take on Nivea Lip Care in Pink Start and Glamorous Gloss Natural:

These lip glosses come in a tube packaging with a transparent screw cap.  The opening of the lip gloss is tapered to an angle, which facilitates the easy application of gloss on lips.

The pictures are inspired by Jomol ()

The gloss comes out in a lump (a thick layer) from the tube, so as to smoothen out the product on to the lips, we can use either this tube top as applicator or our fingertips.

Swatches: Left Pink Star, Right Glamorous Gloss Natural

The gloss comes out of the gloss tube like this (sorry for unwaxed arms).

Gloss smoothened out.

Both the glosses come out clear on the lips, but gives a healthy glossy shine to the lips. They are not at all heavy on the lips and also there is no waxy kind of feeling. They are very moisturising and have a great staying power. They stay on my lips for a good 4-5 hours even with meals in between.  They can also be applied on top of any lipstick to get a glossy look.

On digging my eyes into the swatch, I could figure out that the pink one has very minute pink and silver shimmer, while the peachy one has golden shimmers in it and none of them is over the top.  They also have a slight mild fragrance, which is not overpowering at all.

Pros of Nivea Lip Care

  • No heavy or waxy feeling on application.
  • Good staying power, up to 4-5 hours (with meals).
  • Sturdy packing.
  • Easy to carry in the bag with no doubt about spillage from the tube.
  • Minute shimmers in the gloss give shiny and glossy lips.
  • Clear shine on the lips (some might think it as a con).

Cons of Nivea Lip Care

  • A little bit expensive as there are a number of glosses in the market at a lesser price.
  • No mention of ingredients list on the packaging and on the website as well.
  • No mention of expiry date on the packaging.
  • Other than these, I am not able to find any other con about these glosses.

IMBB Rating:

4/5 (1 point deducted for the cons that I mentioned above).

Will I Repurchase?

I really liked these glosses as they are very moisturising and don’t dry out my lips at all, but I might not be re-purchasing them as these will last me long and I would like to try so many other glosses available in the market.

Do I Recommend?

I would really like to recommend these to those who are looking for good moisturizing glosses. They are really good and must be tried at least one.

PS:  One thing that I would really like you people to know is that the ones I got appear quite different from the ones on the Nivea official website.  It might be that I am having the fake ones. So, I tried to compare them with the Nivea Pinkish Boost packaging that I own.

Even if they are fakes, they fare very good and I like them a lot, but one should be careful while picking the product as there are so many fakes doing the rounds in the market nowadays.

Let me know, if you liked the review.
