NIVEA LIP GLOSS!!

Pin It
This is for Ansh!

I was passing by the "Health & Glow" store and by passing .....i mean "hauling"....I saw this new product from Nivea. I have always loved their glosses and thought why not give this a try?

What it is?

A new gloss from nivea called "pinkish boost"




















What it claims?



















The price?

175/- for a 10 ml tube.Packaging is very cute.


















My verdict:- The small tube is very handy and I like the fact it can be simply squeezed to be applied on to the lips.The product gives intense moisturisation to the lips and it has spf 15. It is supposed to enhance the natural pink tone of your lips. Can't say much about the "pinkish boost" claim as I started using it only a few days back.But the moisturising effect lasts for atleast 4-5 hrs(didn't think it would last for 8hrs straight).It has a slight pinkish hue and it wears itself really sheer on my lips(my lips are a bit pigmented). Everything is great except for....................wait for it.............................THE TASTE!!!!! absolutely haaaaaaaatttttttteeeeeeeeeeeeee the taste ....I can't explain it...kinda bitter and off putting. Whenever i see the tube now...i feel the taste in my mouth which is not very pleasant at all. I don't know whether I got a bad batch(mine expires on 7/12) or not?????? whatever it is...HATE IT!

Will I repurchase? NO. simply 'coz of the taste . Can't stand it. If you are someone who doesn't bother much with gloss tastes then go ahead and try this....other wise steer clear.

Hey Anju..

You don't know how many times I almost bought this and skipped at the last moment. I think there are better ones from Nivea. Guess Cynthia has some reviews.

@GGG:- yes i have read cynthia's reviews....but the tube was soooo cute and I had to buy these..well I am regretting it

I quite like the Nivea stick balms, but I somehow don't like their glosses in tubes. I used to have the ones they had launched initially - the nude shine & pink shine.. Didn't like either :P

indianmakeupways said...

@tanveer:-thanks for the heads up. wont purchase 'em either :)
@rakhshanda:-if u don't mind the taste go ahead u will love it
@rentu:-believe me thats where ur love to this gloss will end. coz it tastes yuck!

Anshita said...

thanks a lot :))
well, i dont mind the taste..my upper lip is a bit darker..so my only concern is if this will be visible on them..??
@anamika plz do give some swatches when u try this.
n u too if possible plz. read ur mac smoulder review..grrrr8!!

indianmakeupways said...

@anshita:- u r welcome. I dont know whether it will "cover" up your upper lip pigmentation 'coz as i mentioned in the review it goes on very sheer like a clear gloss onto the lips(so tat answers ur question....the pale pink on the swatch wont show up tat well). maybe it will do some good with constant use as the company claims it to be "pinkish boost" :)

Mehak said...

@ anshita- i have the same problem exactly- with discoloured lips. You need to start applying lipstick or look for an opaque gloss like MAC cremesheen. I wouldnt recomment pinkish boost for you, because its very sheer

@mehak:-thanks for helping her out & anshita hope u got ur answer :)
