Core Battle of the lip balms
When I was a child ,we barely knew what lip balms were . I started using Vaseline petroleum jelly when it came out in a tube (ahh old times) , then I used those weird clear lip glosses that were so bad but I was a kid I thought they were cool . I bought new brands of lip balms with the time that I was growing up and I was even complimented that there are no lines on my lips . When I was in the 9th grade I started using the real deal lip balms , in different flavors and colors and I have never looked back . I would be comparing two of my current lip balms 🙂 because we all know how difficult it is to do it on the counter of a shop where the shopkeeper says ”madam yeh logey ki rakh dun “ . I need to have a fabulous lip balm and kajal because I don’t use any other makeup product and these two products are crucial in making my face look human. Thus, my quest for the best kajal and lip balm never ends 😛
The first one is Nivea fruity shine lip balm in strawberry (rs 120). This beautiful lip balms comes in different flavors such as pomegranate, Guava , Strawberry and one more that I can’t remember 😀 . I have used the three mentioned above and I loved all of them . There is something about Nivea lip balms that I really like , although there are many others in the market . Nivea always seems like the safer bet .
Pros- very hydrating , lovely color pay , smells nice too and can be used for a long time .
Cons – THE PRICE
Avon natural lip balm in grapefruit and mint – Avon has always been close to my heart because this was the first cosmetic company from which my sister used to order things 😀 I still remember her sitting with the catalogue and deciding 🙂 . I have never ordered anything from Avon or oriflame because I have no representative around me and I won’t lie , I like makeup on other people not me 😛 . When my friend told me she has some lady who is a rep of Avon , two lip balms for 80 Rs and that it tastes sweet , I HAD to buy it 😛
Pros– Hydrating , amazing smell and taste and usually on sale 😀
Cons – Leaves a white layer after sometime and you have to know a Avon representative to buy this . 🙁
Avon lip balm does what it claims i.e moisturize but it makes this weird layer on my lips after sometime and that layer makes me look flushed out :/
Nivea lip balm on the other hand does not last that long on the lips but still does the trick of hydrating my lips and gives a beautiful ting to my lips without making any white or any other color film over it 😀
Swatch –Nivea/ Avon , as you can see the color of Nivea can not be compared in any way to that of Avon because Avon Doesn’t have any color
Verdict – I use the Nivea all the time because it is the best but I use the Avon when I feel sick because it smells really nice 😛 .
For me it is half and half , both of them hydrate but Avon isn’t an all rounder 😀 .Nivea is the winner for me . Tell me which do you find better .
