Nivea Lip Balm in Star Fruits - Strawberry
I have posted a review of the Nivea Lip Balm in cherry earlier.
This lip balm in Strawberry is not so diffirent in terms of texture or ingredients, though it does seem to moisturise a little better. It only differs in two aspects.
1. Smell: OMG! This has the most ravishing strawberry smell. It is so much better than the cherry. It picks up my mood instantly. (Well, I am a sucker for all things strawberry). Just love it.
2. Color: The balm is a fire box red tint, as opposed to the slight fuchsia (rani pink) tint that the cherry adopts. But, but, but this is a little less pigmented, so the color is much lighter on your lips. But this one is a little bit more glossy than cherry.
So which one is better, I say both rock..
The Cherry one is my go-to for when I want a tinted color on my lips. It gives a fabulous color that stains the lips perfectly & looks very kissable. A swipe & I am set for the day.
The Strawberry one makes me go weak in the knees every time I smell it. The color does not show up on my pigmented lips, but it makes them look nice & glossy, (& not waxy & white & heavy) so it is a good substitute for me for a transparent lip gloss (which melt in our heat, anyways)
