Product Review: Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Pomegranate

Lip balms help keep our lips moisturized and rescue them from chapping, windburns, and even cold sores that's why I love them. I can't wear any lip product without it underneath. That's how I started liking tinted lip balms. I can get away without wearing any lipstick or lipgloss without looking pale. I just love how it moisturizes lips and adding a hint of color at the same time. My HG is MAC TLC in Gentle Coral but I am out of it so I kept searching for cheaper alternatives. One product was an epic fail and a couple of disappointments too but not with this one - Nivea Fruity Shine Lip Balm in Pomegranate.

What I like:
- It moisturizes and helps keep my lips hydrated for hours.
- It looks brick-red but turns to a nice pink tint on the lips and even if the gloss is gone, there is still some color left on the lips.
- It is glossy but not over the top glossy as if I put oil on my lips.
- One tube lasts for about 2-3 months even with daily application (in my case)
- Inexpensive at around PHP89 (less than $2). I forgot the exact price but it isn't over 90 bucks.
- Locally available at department stores and drugstores nationwide.

What I don't like:
- The scent. I find it a little too sweet though it fades after a few minutes. I hope they come up with something tinted but unscented.
- There is some sort of taste in it but I can't describe it. I like my lip products unflavored.

Overall rating: 4/5 - I would've given it a 5 if it weren't for the scent and taste. It does its job well in my opinion.

Will I buy again? Yes!

Lip swatch
Me wearing just the lip balm, no other lippies. (I bought the sunflower headband for my niece but i tried it and realized it keeps my bangs from poking my eyes and forehead so I decided to keep it for myself. I look pretty stupid with a big flower on my head but I like it. :P)

And oh, everything inside the black box with the pink ribbon are products I will be reviewing for you all in the next few weeks. :)

Happy Wednesday! :P


  1. wow! i haven't tried this variant yet, i bet it's a new flavor. i have been using the strawberry one since high school. and it has always been my fav lip balm. thanks for the review. it's making me wanna buy and try that variant =)

  2. Abby, yeah, I think it's a pretty new flavor. I have the strawberry too but I like the color of this one better. Try it. :P

  3. I actually like the big yellow headband! Ha =) - Trace

  4. Trace, I really like it. My mom asked, "Oh, kelan ka sasayaw ng bulaklak?" (When are you going to do the flower dance?) My mom and her sense of humor. Haha! :P

  5. I really like how it gives your lips a nice natural tint!

  6. I LOVE NIVEA balm! the tinted one is just so natural and moisturizing!

    I have the same box and it's like Christmas all over again!

  7. Amy, yeah that's what I really like about it. :P

    Nikki, I agree that they are moisturizing and look natural. I felt like a little girl being handed a Barbie doll. :P

  8. because of your review, i bought one earlier and true enough the tint is pretty, my boyfriend even asked why my lips look better now. thanks for the reco. btw, what's in the box? :-)

  9. Kat, I'm glad you liked it too! :P
    Oh, those are Purederm stuff.

  10. I have one in rose, the package said it has a slight rose-tint I was dissappointed :( Wanted to try this because I had the Cherry Nivea before. Good to know this one has an obvious tint.
