My Experience :
After having very good experience with the whole range of Nivea Fruit and Shine lip balms. I bought Nivea
Glamorous Gloss in Pink Sugar. I actually bought it as my Bhabi recommended it and indeed it’s a very good product.
However, after reading my review you can decide it by yourself, isn’t it?
Nivea Glamorous Gloss comes in a sleek pink tube with a transparent screw cap. The design on the package looks too
cute and attractive! It has got a slant applicator nozzle and the amount of the product required can be squeezed out
from the tube. It is completely hygienic. On squeezing you will find that the gloss is in creamy consistency and not
runny, like other lip glosses. The gloss is somewhat peachy in color with pink undertones. It has got very fine silver
shimmer in it which can only be observed by examining closely while squeezing it out of the tube but on lips, it’s quite difficult to identify them. The fragrance is somewhat like of “the bubblegum” which lingers on for sometime and then slowly fades away. I am not quite fond of this fragrance.
On application, you will find that it glides on smoothly and your lips get moisturized immediately. Its because of the
presence of Shea butter and Vitamin – E (as mentioned by the company). It has also got SPF15 which means your lips
stay protected even if you step out during day time. Well, as a matter of fact – all Nivea lip balms contain SPF15 and
that adds a beneficial factor to its products. It is quite non-sticky and my lips appear fuller when I apply it on my
lips. Its a sheer gloss and generally, I apply it above my super matte lipsticks and lip tints. I cannot apply it alone as it
doesn’t show up well on pigmented lips. This gloss is neither too heavy nor too light on my lips, it’s somewhat in between which is ok for me.
It lasts for about 2 hours with mild snacks in between and after a heavy meal; it completely disappears from the lips. If you drink water or any liquid stuff, this doesn’t come off from your lips. Though it doesn’t completely come off from your lips, the glossy shine comes off easily. And once the glossy shine goes, you may feel a bit sticky. But if you don’t eat or drink anything, then it lasst well for straight 2 hours which is a good deal for this price. The quantity that this tube offers i.e. 8.5ml lasts for a long time, atleast for me! Its quite cost effective.
Here I had swatched it on my lips!!
Pros of the Product :
- It is reasonably priced.
- One tube lasts for a long time.
- It has got very fine silver shimmer particles.
- It moisturizes your lips very well and its because of the presence of Shea Butter and Vitamin – E in it.
- It has got SPF15 in it.
- It is non-sticky.
- It stays on for about 2 hours at a stretch with mild snacks in between.
- It makes lips appear fuller though actually it doesn’t contain any ingredient which would enhance your lips.
Cons of the Product :
- It doesn’t show up well on pigmented lips but shows beautifully on non-pigmented lips.
- If the glossy appearance goes away due to intake of any kind of fluids or when it comes in contact with water.
- If excess amount gets applied, it tends to cast a whitish cast on your lips which looks quite ugly.
Apart from these, i feel this is a great lip gloss.
Final Verdict : Overall, Nivea Glamorous Gloss – Pink Sugar is a very good lip gloss which is priced reasonably. It has got fine silver shimmer particles in it which look beautiful on lips. On application, you’ll find that it is quite moisturizing and your lips appear to be fuller and plumper though it actually doesn’t contain any ingredient which would plump your lips. It stays intact for about 2 hours at a stretch which is a great attribute for a lip gloss of this price range. However, it doesn’t show up well on pigmented lips but if topped over a lipstick or a lip tint it looks beautiful and if you are blessed with non-pigmented lips then you can easily flaunt your lips! I would recommend this to everyone!
