Nivea Blackberry Shine Caring Lip Balm Review and Swatches:

It has been a very long time that I have updated with any post, anywho, Winter is coming; finally the Game of Thrones profecy is taking form. I am a bit of lip balm freak, I like to collect and try as many lip balm as possible! So, here a new lip balm that has been launched by NIVEA which I will be reviewing today.

Variant: Blackberry Shine

Price & Quantity: Rs. 185 for 4.8g.


Product Description: Pamper your lips with Nivea Blackberry Shine Caring Lip Balm. Experience long-lasting moisturisation combined with delightful Blackberry Aroma and chosen pigments that leave a touch of colour on your lips.

Skin compatibility dermatologically approved.

My Experience with Nivea Blackberry Shine Caring Lip Balm:

Till now, I have given myself the privilege of experiencing many lip balms that are available in the market and you can purchase it over the counter in drugstores. I have tried many flavors, but this Blackberry was a foreign subject for me. I have came across blueberry or strawberry or even raspberries previously, in the field of lip balms.

Now, to be honest, when I opened the lip balm for the first time, it filled my senses with beautiful fruity scent of the blackberries. The smell is a combination of tangy and sweet flavor, although you cannot taste anything if you are  wondering! The texture of the lip balm is quite sticky, but not in a bad way though, it helps the product to linger longer.

I have used around 7-8 other variants of the NIVEA Caring Lip balm range, and I believe the brand name does not need any kind of special introduction. The bullet might show particles of glitter, however, once applied, it does not display any of that kind. It is glistening and very well works as lip gloss, too. The best part, other than the no-show of glittery particles, is that it is beautifully tinted. Now, as I have pigmented or uneven toned lips, it helps in covering the lips and reflects a very light plum shade on my lips, it actually in reality has better tint which for some kind of unknown reason (lighting), is not reflecting on the photos. So, you can expect a medium coverage on the lips if you are concerned about uneven toned lips.

The staying power is decent, I would say and that does not include eating or drinking Coffee. The maximum staying limit will be around 5 hours, which in my opinion is pretty good for this price range and the brand quality taken in consideration. It actually helps in keeping the lips moisture and nourished, if you are consistent in applying the lip balm after certain span. It heals the chapped lips over the period of time and after applying it religiously for few days, it helped in improving the uneven tone of my lips. I honestly do not know if that was meant to be, it is quite a great help for me.

The Good Points:

  • Nourishing, and moisturising.
  • Beautifully tinted for uneven toned lips.
  • Staying power is pretty decent.
  • Easily available.
  • Reliable and quality brand.
  • One bullet will survive at least 20-25 days of continuous usage.

The Not so Good Points:
I did not find any faults in this lip balm, till now!

Rating: 4.5/5.

Recommendation: I would surely recommend this product especially for the coming winter season, the texture of this lip balm helps the product to stay on the lips put for a long time. The tint helps cover up the pigments, that is quite a winner for me as lip balm with the price tag.

My #madeofgreat, my life!

My life was quite boring and confined to my house only as being into a very conservative family and I hardly had a chance to explore the world. I found my love in books and novels. Then, I met him, became friends and then fell in love. Love, might sound quite easy and vague; but for me, it was the whole world.

Being committed to someone and being in love is also quite different. For I did not know what is love until I have come across him. He has been a friend, rather best friend, lover, husband and a guardian. I have no idea what my life would have been without him, and I do not even think about it.

There are little things which make me wonder how he is as a human being. He would treat a valet and a good friend with the same smile and hearty behavior, I know it sounds weird when I say it like that but, I have not seen a single person who would not behave with hum so nicely. It is the true example of what we get what we give. And, this nature of him has taught me a lesson too about how we an make this world a little better by changing our way of treating others.

There is another great thing about him is that he is a dog lover! I know that is very common, but he made into a dog lover too where I used to stay miles away from dogs. A childish fear of dog hovered over my head every time I used to see a dog near me, and right now, I am a big time dog lover. I trust dogs more than any human around. He convinced me to bring my son (rey) to home and for 1 week, I was scared of a little creature who hardly was bigger than my palm! Then, gradually, he became my life and I always find it hard to say thank you to him for this as words fall always short for me.

I honestly has gone through every step of my life with him and for him, he is the best thing that has happened to my life and I am forever grateful to God for making us stay together.

I have learned so many things from him and I cherish every moment with him. Now, my wish and prayer to God is to send him into my life for rest of my lives like they say in every Bollywood movies (too much drama)!

So, for me my husband is #madeofgreat and thank you Indiblogger and Tata Motors for this awesome contest as I never had this opportunity to appreciate and express my feelings about him. I am blessed with a good husband and best friend in one generous human being, and I thank God each day for this lovely blessing.

A Party Look OOTD Featuring

Saree, I have found my love for it recently and the more I indulge, I get addicted to it! So, you can say that I am becoming a saree person altogether, and you could expect me to see in that avatar more often! I have ordered saree online before and the experience was not so good, and yet how could that stop me from buying again?
