Nivea LipBalm

5/18/11

Hello loves!
I know it's been about a month since I last posted. With the end of the semester and an increase in schoolwork I was forced to give up some aspects of my social life (yes I consider this part of my "social" life :P)
Anyways, I'm back and am so super excited for bright colours and sunshine :)
I also have a Nivea LipBalm to review-the Nivea "Star Fruits" LipBalm in Strawberry. I purchased this as a friend of mine had the Cherry lipbalm and the sheer red colour looked gorgeous on her lips. I thought I'd give the Strawberry a try and I love it! It's sort of a sheer coral-red and it warms up my NC30 skin even with no makeup on!
My pros:
-lovely colour,
-the formula tends to be a good medium between greasy and waxy-my lips felt moisturized
 -good size,
-veeery good price (~3CAD)!
My cons:
-I have to reapply to get that moisture-it doesn't last ALL day,
-it DOES have colour which means you have to be careful how you apply.

Here are some swatches! :)

All in all I think I would repurchase this lipbalm, its cheap, it has a cute summer tint and it does do its job. :)

What do you guys think? Have you tried these? What are you favourite lipbalms?

I just want to say thank you so much for following and keeping up with me!
Gros Bec! xoxo
