Nivea Fruity Shine Pomegranate Tinted Lip Balm Review
Today I am going to review..
Net weight: 4.8 gm
Packaging,Description & Ingredients: (see pics below)
Many of you may have used the strawberry and cherry lip balms from nivea. I have used both of them and I still have a li’l bit left.This time while shopping I spotted a new flavour and without second thoughts decided to buy it. It is called “NIVEA Fruity Shine Pomegranate”.I found it quite interesting due to the pomegranate flavour because I’ve never seen anything with that flavour.I came home and immediately unpacked it. The packaging is shimmery deep red in colour and as you can see in the pic they changed the shape of the cap.
The pomegranate lipbalm is deep red in colour with lots of pink and silver micro shimmer in it.
I desperately wanted to smell it first to see how a pomegranate flavoured lip balm smells! I smelt it..and I was like what!!! Because it smells like a water melon flavoured jelly!!!(if you ever ate boomerang melon flavoured jelly bubble gum you’ll know what the smell is like) so they should’ve named it a melon flavoured lipblam! The smell is quite strong..sensitive noses may not be able to bear it.it took me quite some time to get used to the smell. After smelling I applied it to my lips and to my surprise it tasted exactly like that melon jelly! Yes..like the melon jelly in the center of boomerang bubblegum! I never had the habit of licking my lips after applying anything to them so I never noticed how the previous ones tasted.. 😛 I rushed to my room and tasted both the cherry and strawberry lipbalms and they had a very bad chemical taste to them! So I was impressed! 😛 coming to the colour it applies as a very sheer lovely deep rosey maroon red colour.my lips are a li’l bit dark dull and ashy looking and it gave a very natural tint to them and made them look alive.so this is a must have for all the ladies out there with dark pigmented lips or dull ashy looking lips! It has spf 10 in it..so yay for that! 🙂 The shimmer is very fine and less that it is not that noticeable.
Individual swatch: pomegranate
for colour comparison purpose I swatched all the three colours side by side for you guys.
Clockwise & bottom to top: pomegranate,cherry and strawberry.
I guess they improved the formulation in pomegranate one too! Because the moisturizing effect lasts nearly 3-4 hours as opposed to the former ones which had to be re-applied every 1 hour or so.Even after full meals the colour fades off but not the moisturising effect.Thumbs up for this! I apply it 3 times: after bath,after washing face in the evening and before going to bed.so far I am in love with this . :*
Pros of Nivea Fruity Shine Pomegranate Lip Balm
- It gives a very natural tint to any kind of lips irrespective of their pigmentation.
- Moisturisation effect lasts a good 3-4 hours.(if not licked off)
- Shimmer is not at all gritty and tacky.it is very fine and is very less.
- It tastes so good.
- Very affordable price.
- Has spf 10.
Cons of Nivea Fruity Shine Pomegranate Lip Balm
- The smell is so strong that those with smell sensitive noses may not be able to bear it.
- It tastes so good! This is a con too because some people may lick it off either due to their lip licking habit or due to its sweet taste! 😛
Will I repurchase this? I will.. I definitely will.. 🙂
Will I recommend this? YES(but not for sensitive noses!)
