It was some weeks ago when Nivea sent Kikay Corner these awesome new ranges: Extra Whitening and Nivea Lip Care ranges. Even before Nivea Philippines got this sent, I have already bought one of these lip balms from a department store when I left my lip balm one Saturday afternoon.
I especially love the tinted Nivea lip balms. Kind of takes away the trouble of having to apply lipstick altogether during my many lazy days. My lips would, every so often go into this stubborn chapping spree and it can be pretty annoying if left unaddressed. I usually end up with bleeding lips because my no less stubborn fingers won’t stop tinkering with wayward dead skin that needs peeling off. I know just so well that I’m not alone in this predicament.
While I have tried the Nivea’s tinted lip balms, I’m trying these new lip babies for the first time. Both Nivea Pinkish Boost 3in1 and Nivea Natural Volume took me by their SPFs. The former being SPF15 and the latter, SPF30. Nivea Pinkish Boost 3in1 is said to restore natural lip color, reduces lip dullness and protects lips with SPF15.
• with Collagen Enhancer – locks moisture in providing intensive care and natural volume from within
• captures and reflects the light, instantly leaving a beautiful shine for noticeable volume
• contains SPF 30+, protection against UVA and UVB rays
Nivea Lip Care Natural Volume is a new innovative formula with Collagen Enhancer and Light Reflecting Pigments provides your lips with natural volume and extra shine for beautiful, luscious lips – without being sticky.
But of course, being the responsible kikay that I am, I’m not just going to take their word for it. I had to try it out for myself. The SPF30 of Nivea’s Natural Volume Lip gloss appealed more to me, so I decided to test it, for starters. Because I was also going out when I first tried it, I chose the most natural lipstick I have, MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Blankety underneath Nivea Natural Volume Lip Gloss, just to test how smooth or otherwise it is when used with other products. Other glosses, especially those that we see in staples coupons sometimes don’t measure up. I am pretty satisfied. And yes, there is definitely no sticky feel to it too. Nivea Natural Volume Lip 8.5ml gloss locally retails for P175.
