Lip Balm Love

Hi girls, if you were to ask me about my favourite beauty products, I would have to say lip products. I am equally fond f lipsticks, glosses and balms and alternate between the 3 depending on my mood. Lipbalms are a more recent love so they deserve a little more attention than others. Don't you think?

Whatever anybody may tell you, there is NO such thing as lip balm addiction.

I have tried, vaseline, dermalogica, bvlgari, jovees and himalya before I found my HG balm. The Nivea Starshine series. Anyone who has used these will love them without arguement. They are non waxy, shiny, impart a lovely tint and have a yummy flavour. You don't need to use anything with them and they are my go to products in absolute tearing hurry (which is often!) The only drawback is that they can not be used as is it underneath a lipstick. The gloss and tint do not let the lipstick sit well or show its true colour. They may not moisturise as well as some other balms out there, but with something as cute as this, you don't mind reapplying every now and then. Do you?

Pictured above are the Pink Guava (l), Dragonfruit (r) and Pomegranate (bottom) variants. I also have the strawberry one. Pomegranate has the most vibrant colour but smells like something else altogether and I am not very fond of the maroonish tint. Dragonfruit is a gorgeous bright pink that is my absolute favourite. Pink Guava is a nude pink; the MLBB shade and Strawberry smells like real fresh strawberries. It is a light red that is very wearable.

Here are the swatches. Pomegranate (top), Pink Guava (l) and Dragonfruit (r) -

All in all, I love these and will collect all the shades they launch in future as well. The only lip balms I feel like trying now are eos (the egg balm) and burt's bees. The rest of lipbalm love goes to Nivea and Nivea alone...
