Nivea Pearly Shine Lip Balm ~ Review, Swatch and Lips

What Nivea says about Pearly Shine Lip Balm:  
The innovative formula of NIVEA Pearly Shine, with precious Pearl & Silk extracts, combines long lasting moisturisation and a beautiful pearly shine which leaves lips silky smooth and velvety soft. Dermatologist tested.




 How it works? 

  •     Beautifully natural lips with a pearly shine 
  •     Provides daily moisturizing care and protection for your lips 
  •     Contains SPF 10 to help protect against UVA and UVB rays 

Result: Soft and silky smooth lips 

Price:  159 INR for 4g

Look & Feel:


  • Texture:  Creamy, smooth and soft to apply but little sticky.
  • Package: Stick package with sturdy gripped cap. Looks pretty too :)
  • Fragrance: It has floral smell which is fine with me but few may not like to wear floral fragrance on lips.
  • Shade: Baby pink shade with a pearly sheen to it. The shade will wash out Indian skin tones if worn alone.  I didn't like it first but once combined with the right clothes and makeup I started loving it.

The Effects
  • Lasting Power: Stays intact for 2.5 hours surviving light snacks. After that the color and moisturizing gradually decrease and vanish by the end of 4 hours.
  • Smooth and Soft? Transforms dry lips to soft creamy lips in almost single swipe.
  • Nourishment: It does heal chapped lips on regular usage.
  • On Lips: It gives pink n*de lips with pearly sheen.
To be Paired With:
  • Pink clothes
  • Heavy kohled eyes - Refer this tutorial
  • Dark blushes.
 

Buy This:
  • For SPF10.
  • If you have fair skin with pink undertones.
  • For instant soft smooth lips.
  • For 4 hours moisturization
  • For the care and nourishment
Don't Buy:
  • If you don't like floral fragrance on lips
  • If you don't like stickiness on lips
  • For the complicated color which requires proper coordination for Indian skin tones.
Final Note:  As a lip balm it delivers ALL the claims. If you don't like the washed out effect of the color you can choose others shades available. A good choice for teenagers :). I personally like this and it is a happy investment in my beauty bank :)
