OH MY GOSH!
It’s been way too long since my last beauty review and I feel terrible because this past season has had me testing anything to help my eczema from spreading from my face! But I’ve also had a terrible problem with chapped lips…so I’ve tried out so many different lip products, it’s obnoxious! Luckily, during Christmas, my job had a special holiday Nivea tin that carried the Nivea Lip Butter and Lip Shimmer for a relatively cheap price compared to CVS and Walmart, so I bought it and decided to try it out! And now, after a month, I am ready to review it for you all…SO LET’S START!
DISCLAIMER: I was not asked nor paid to do this review. The product featured was purchased by me with no discount offered by any companies. The opinion shared is my own, honest, and personal opinion of the product. Thank you for understanding.
(That awkward moment when you realize you chose the wrong accent mark…) Anyways, like I said, I purchased the holiday tin for about $2.69 at my job which I found to be a steal. The holiday tin was featured on my Instagram if you would like to see the full purchase.
Let me tell you all about this packaging. I am a sucker for matte packaging and I was surprised to see that it was in a little tin case and the tin was a pretty light pink matte color. It makes it much more appealing to me. It’s pretty thin and small, so it fits in all purses and pockets no problem. I love the details of the raspberries and the butter like background that makes me hungry. Overall, I love it! I am not going to lie about such cute packaging.
So, opening up the top reveals that there is quite a lot of lip butter inside. I was surprised because when I’ve come across other lip products in tin containers, there was not much inside. The lip butter is quite a pale pink in bright light, but darkens up in low light. I like the color and I am comforted by the fact that I know this little tin will last a while given how much there is.
I always feel weird describing texture…BUT the texture feels like that of a smooth butter, which makes sense given the product. When I use the product, it appears like a sheer shimmer on my finger like in the above picture. It glides on pretty well, but application to my lips isn’t quite as fast. It takes a couple coats to get the moisture my lips need for the winter season. That’s not to say it doesn’t work, but it’s too thin for one coat…at least during this season. I’m hoping in the summer, I can work with one coat! But like I said earlier, I don’t think I have to worry in regards of running out until then.
(Please don’t mind my skin, I forgot to put on moisturizer…) So, this is the before and after picture to give you all a glance at how it appears on actual lips! In the before picture, you can see that my lips are a bit dry and chapped and little pigment. Au natural err’body! After applying the lip butter, you can see in the after picture that my lips look much smoother with a hint of pink. You can also see that they are indeed moisturized, which is the ultimate reason for purchasing the product.
OVERALL, I would definitely suggest this lip butter to people but preferably for the spring and summer season due to the multiple application during the winter season. I like how it adds a natural and subtle pink tint to my lips and it does moisturize my lips for a couple hours which works well for me because I eat and drink things in those couple hours so it’s not bother to put on another coat. It has helped my lips in the long run, but I’ll probably switch to a more winter appealing lip product until the weather warms up. It was a cheap and great buy though!
That’s it for today, I was hoping to post more this week, but a lot of things came up and I had to postpone Valentine’s Day week to next week! I am going to be working overtime!!! AHHH, wish me luck! Also, KATSUCON IS IN 16 DAYS AND ANTHONY AND I HAVE A SURPRISE ANNOUNCEMENT ON FEBRUARY 14TH AS WELL! We are so excited, but we’re waiting to tell you all! So much is going on this month…I can’t keep up! Also, my next post for TheDCLadies.Com will be LIVE tomorrow! SO STOP BY AND SAY HEY! Lots of yelling today, I’m sorry…
With all of that said, I hope you enjoyed this post and I can’t wait until next time! As always; have a great rest of the week, be safe, stay warm, and live to love.
