Love this sooo much! It tastes and smells exactly like red cherry popsicles, it gives a pretty natural red flush to my lips (and i sometimes double it up as a cheek tint) and it lasts a pretty long time. I would buy this again (:
OK, could there be a better lip balm ever?! It moisturizes like a dream, tastes good, has a nice color, and wears really well. It's all the pretty of a gloss/lipstick without the yucky taste, bad moisturizing, hassle, or stickiness (YUCK!)....I love this stuff!
Good moisturization and highly pigmented (for a chapstick).
Color is a transparent popsicle red with a faint shimmer. I can't wear red lip products but because this red is pretty see-through and light, it works on me. On first application, it is quite a bright popsicle red (which I am not necessarily a fan of). But the popsicle-ness dies down later and you end up with a natural light-red/fushia pink stain.
The packaging is cute except I find the width of the product (the chapstick itself) too wide which makes for sloppy application, especially if you have smaller lips.
love love love this. my HG chapstick (along with KoM). super moisturizing & i love the tint it leaves on my lips. the red flush makes me look healthy & vibrant. i love the smell too. the only thing is if you're not careful, the packaging is a bit flimsy & may be prone to cracking. other than that, i will continue to buy these chapsticks over & over again :]
Bought this product on a whim. I love my tinted lip balms and thought I'd try this. I have to say that the color is really red. But I actually found this product more useful as a lip tint than a balm. What I do is apply it on my lips, leave it on for a bit and wipe some off. It leaves a nice color and is not drying at all, unlike most liquid lip tints. This is a really great alternative!
I was quite disappointed in this product. I loved the original Nivea a kiss of moisture, and so I decided I was going to try this one as well. This was much too red to look natural. It was the exact same color as the tube. It really stains your lips and makes it look like you just sucked on a SUPER red Popsicle. It`s wayy to red for me personally and the color just didnt work for me at all. However, the texture was perfect. It felt just right. Not too waxy, just perfect. The smell was amazing too. Very fruity. It`s a shame I didn`t like the colour. This could have turned out to be an amazing product.
I have fairly pale lips and was looking for a tinted lip balm that is moisturizing enough not to set into my lines. This one is perfect! It's a little red but delivers the rosy tint I was looking for. It's also extremely moisturizing unlike the Nivea Pearl & Shine. It also doesn't have that gross sweet taste to it. Overall, a great and convenient lip balm.
Oh, I love this stuff! I was looking for a daily lip balm that looked like a more pigmented version of Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm, and this is it. I got it at CVS at a very inexpensive price, though it was a bit tricky to find. (I found it packaged by all of the other Nivea products, not by other lip balms like I thought they would be.)
You know how most tinted lip balms are in overly pigmented, fake colors? Well, this one isn't. When putting on one coat, it goes on rather sheer; however, you can build up the color by adding more coats. Also, if you're in a cinch, you can use your fingers to apply this to your cheeks as a blush. The color is a cool light red at first, but later fades to a reddish-pink color. The more layers of this you put on your lips, the brighter and more vibrant the shade will be.
This is very smooth, and it smells sweet, like cherry or cranberry popsicles. It reminds me of long, nice summers by the pool! (It smells very nice to me, but others might not agree.) It doesn't taste like anything, for those of you who want to know. I'll also add that I love the packaging on this.
All in all, I absolutely love this stuff! It looks great with Smith's Minted Rose Lip Balm over it, or with Bonne Bell VitaGloss2O A Splash of Color in Sheer Strawberry on top. The only thing that I wish it had was SPF, though. That's the only downside that I see to this product. Otherwise, I absolutely love it.
This lip balm is extremely moisturizing. I first tried this product in the winter when my lips were chapped beyond any reason. Basically, my lips were flaking and I could not wear anything over my lips because...it was very unflattering. When I purchased this, I was not expecting much because it was quite cheap. After applying the product and checked my lips, my lips were extremely smooth and moisturized. I had no idea that a lip balm could do such thing. The only downside to this lip balm is that...it is suuuupppeerr pigmented. And it seems like...the color intensifies as time passes. Other than the extremely bright color and its intensity...this product is amazing <33 ^^
I would recommend this lip balm in a color of less intensity. The strong pigmentation of this particular color was the only downside for me personally.
I love this lip balm! HG! After reading the reviews, I had to try it, and it's just what I was looking for: a red-tinted lip balm that makes my lips look naturally red and keeps my lips moisturized and protected. (I hate lipstick.) On first opening the tube, I noticed that the stick of balm is actually the same color red as the plastic tube. When I applied it, it went on very smoothly; there was much less drag than with waxier ChapStick. The smell is like cherry hard candy to me, and I like it. There is no sweetener in the balm, so there's no taste or sweetness when you lick your lips. And the color! I love the color on my lips! On me it's a very natural shade of rose, like me but better. The tint is so subtle that I think the reviewers who claimed this gave them clown lips must really be smearing it on. I've rubbed a lot in to see if I could get clown lips, and I couldn't! The color is nicely buildable: the first application gives me the barest color for everyday wear, the second gives me more, and the third is what I like best: a beautiful rose-red that defines my lips.The color stains the lips and lasts even through eating and drinking. I also love the finish: it is not quite matte, as there is an attractive, ultra-slight sheen to the lips. The feel is not greasy or sticky at all; my hair does not stick to my lips when I am driving in a car with the windows open (as it does with Lip Smacker, which I love nevertheless for the great flavors). Also great is that this lip balm contains no FD&C colorings. I wear this 24 hours a day. I keep a tube on my nightstand, in my tote, on the chairside table, . . . . I love this stuff!
