New Nivea Lip Butters


Hi everyone!
I was planning to blog about a bunch of new Milani lipsticks, but I needed to take a lot of pics of how they look on the lips, and it just got too dark and dreary here this afternoon. So I thought I'd just do a quick blog on a couple of new things that didn't require so many pictures and natural light. I found these Nivea Lip Butters this past weekend at Walgreens... there was a whole display of Nivea products (including men's stuff) that was Buy One Get One 50% off. Several of you told me I should check out these lip butters so I thought I'd give them a go! I think they were between 2 and 3 bucks each, but I also got the BOGO discount. 


I believe there were four different kinds available... plain and caramel- and then the two I got which are Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss and Raspberry Rose Kiss. They come in sort of flat little tins and they smell AWESOME. The Vanilla and Macadamia has a really nice lightly sweet scent, and the Raspberry actually has a somewhat realistic raspberry scent. They don't give off any color, but they are incredibly hydrating. I've used a few different Nivea lip balms that come in the stick form over the years, and I've really liked them. I haven't yet tried using these as a hydrating base for lipsticks. Since they're so emollient I'm not sure if a lipstick would nicely cling to them like they do to EOS (which never feel quite as slick on the lips), but we'll see. Just wanted to give you a heads up on these if you're a Nivea lip product fan! So far I've only seen them on display at Walgreens. 


Daily Nuggets...
  • Picked the right time to shoot a video this morning! We had about an hour or two of sunshine before it turned gray & rainy here. 
  • Had a nice lunch with a couple of former co-workers- it was great to catch up with them! :) 
  • Country Music fans- do you watch Backstory on GAC? They're hour long profiles of various stars and I just find them so interesting! I watched the one on Miranda Lambert over the weekend. 
  • Cleaned the bathroom and my closet this afternoon- it always feels good to get that done! Trying to approach cleaning in small phases so I don't have to have one big marathon cleaning fest.

  5. LOVE how the caramel one smells. I wish i didnt have to stick my fingers into it. I havent decided how mosturizing they really are or how long lasting. Because how thick they are you cant really use them as a shine on lips, you tend to see some of the product.

  6. i have two of these, the vanilla and caramel ones, i find that they keep my lips very well hydrated and if i wait a little while after i put it on and then apply lipstick it works very well. i got mine at the local riteaid...i think they cost around $4 there. :)

  13. Well now there's something I don't remember seeing on YouTube. How about a video on lip balms and how popular brands interact with lipsticks. I think that would be fun and quite service-y.

  20. I got the Vanilla Macadamia and the Caramel - gotta say caramel is my fave! It has a salted caramel buttered popcorn thing going on, I dunno but it smells great! I find it's perfect for nighttime use as it tends to leave a bit of a milky look, but it's super hydrating and my lips look great in the morning. I think it'd be terrible under another lip product. Thanks for the review!
