What with our desi markets not as updated or as voluminous as the West, I never bothered much about tinted lip balms and was always faithful to the colorless beauties.
Then I got this one free with some purchase I made from Health and Glow and I soo love this one!
I wish we get more n more such nice ones as gifts J
Check Nivea’s website here for the product: http://www.nivea.in/products/lip-care/fruity-shine/fruity-shine-pink-guava
What Nivea says: “Delicious guava scent and rich ingredients for extremely soft and glossy lips in a luscious deep red tone”
Price is around 100 INR for 4.8 gms of the product.
I love this one! I absolutely love the fruity smell, the slightly sweet taste, the light sheer coral-pink [I don’t know why they say “deep red”!] shade with shimmers and the nice moisturizing effect it gives,
I wish this was a bit long lasting than the 1-2 hours staying power it has.
The casing is strong and sturdy and the cylindrical bullet shape of the product makes it very easy to apply unlike their tube design which is a messier process.
This is not strongly or even medium tinted.. In fact to see the coral pink shade you have to swipe it 5-6 times espl on pigmented lips like mine.
I don’t mind this as I love the feel of this balm.
I love Nivea more so cos I discovered it doesn’t do animal testing.
It has been pretty had to buy products in India as the major players like Lakme and Loreal are all animal-testers and I had to avoid them..
And that also meant, limited range of lippie availability way back when I was in college i.e. 2001-2005.
But now I am happy that lots of alternatives are available like Lotus, FACES, Body Shop etc.
