Hi all the pretty ones!
Now, first of all, you all might be thinking that what am I doing here, given that my exams are going on. Honestly, the first exam was so horrendous in itself, like the institute is just adamant on maintaining the 3% passing criteria, that the only place I could think of, to cool my head off, literally, was and is, IMBB. Hence, I am here. And yes, the fact that my next exam is day after tomorrow also helps. *hihi*
So, after my honest justification of being here in the midst of my exams 😛 , let us come to today’s review, which is my current love, and a new launch from Nivea, Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm, in Peach flavor. When I first saw it online, it looked so cute, that I just had to order it. I just kept my fingers crossed that it doesn’t turn out to be like the Lakme lip balms. Honestly, those have given me a faint heart for a life time. So, I went ahead and placed the order. Read on to find out how does it fare on my Rate-o-meter. 😛
The packaging has been improved. They have revamped the older packaging. If you have seen the new pomegranate one, which is again one of my favorites, it is the same packaging as that one. I love the way it looks, so fruity and fresh, perfect packaging for the onset of summer. It is a twist up tube and the product inside looks a very pretty peach shade, like the name itself.
It comes at a price of Rs. 140, for 4.8 gm. Very, very affordable, given it is going to last you at least 2 months.
I would have preferred to take a picture for this too, but the bar tag firmly stuck here, and I could not pull it off without ruining what is written there, so I am producing it here for you. Anyway, it is the same description as the old ones.

Aaaand now my favourite line…. *hihi*
Nivea – For lips that love to talk , smile , laugh and kiss 😛
My Experience with Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm – Peach:
The first thing you open the tube and twist it open, is the smell. It is so fruity and delicious. I keep pursing my lips to smell it when nobody is looking. It smells heavenly of fresh peaches, and not that artificial and annoying extra fruity smell (strawberry and cherry versions? Now you understand why I don’t prefer you over the others?)
It is not very pigmented, but when you apply, it gives a soft and even peachy sheen to the lips, and moisturizes very decently. It is not at all sticky and is very comfortable on the lips. Also, since it is not insanely colored, which is okay for me, it can be applied before lipsticks, and will make the color pop out more, as it evens out the natural color of your lips and smoothens the dryness. It has SPF 10, which gets it more brownie points, since most of the brands ignore the importance of sun protection for lips, which are more prone to sun damage, being the most delicate part of our body.
I am still sniffing it like a puppy 😛 Okay, I should control myself, but it’s smells heavenly. However, the moisturisation does not last as long as the baby lips, but still it will last you 3 hours, and trust me, you will not mind re-applying it even over your lip colour.
The moisture stays even after a meal, although if you have very dry lips, you will need to apply more frequently. My second favourite after pomegranate has arrived. *happydance*
Pros of Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm – Peach:
- Moisturizes well for 3 hours.
- Does not feel sticky or heavy on lips.
- Evens out with light peachy and soft tint.
- Contains SPF 10.
- Very affordable.
- Travel-friendly packaging.
- Looks very cute.
- Easily available.
Cons of Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm – Peach:
- Not very moisturizing for very dry lips. Re application required (not much of a con for me) 😀
IMBB Rating and Recommendation:
Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm –Peach gets 4.5/5 from me.
It is an excellent new launch from the fruity shine range, which will win you over right from packaging to the tint and moisturisation. A big thumbs up!!
Yes, I will repurchase and recommend.
Before I close my review, I wanted to share with you guys a beautiful charm bracelet I had purchased from ebay. Actually, I had purchased it last month, but forgot to share with you guys. It has all the fairy tale charms. Can you see Cinderella’s shoe, the Truth Mirror from Snow White, Aladdin’s lamp, The engagement ring, The frog prince. I just love it. Don’t you think it is a unique one to have in your collection. Plus the bronze colour gives a royal feel to it. *happydance*
