Nivea Tinted Lip Balm

At some point in time I purchased a Nivea A Kiss of Flavor Passion Fruit Tinted Lip Care balm. Then I promptly forgot about it only to discover it the other day. Now, how I could overlook something as lovely as a passion fruit flavor balm, I’ll never know. That is a favorite flavor of mine, and it isn’t very common. On top of it, I like lightly tinted balms.


The Nivea tinted lip balm did not disappoint. The flavor is light, yet tasty, and the tint is quite nice. this one have a bright enough tint with a fair amount of pigment, so you can actually get some decent sheer color form it—something that many tinted balms fail at. Moisturization from the balm is decent. It isn’t best balm I have had and I had to reapply a bit more often than I prefer, but for the trade off of getting a nice tint and a favorite flavor, I really don’t mind.

Nivea tends to run between $2-3 and can be found at most drugstores.

The Best Lipstick For Fall

Fall is here. I’m not really ready for winter to come after it, but I am ready for fall makeup shades. I have had enough of the pinks and corals of summer and want to move into the red, deep berry, and purple lips and the smoky gray and plum eye shadows of fall. I also can’t wait to get back into deep purple nail polish!

The best fall lipsticks are those that have deep rich hues. If you are not a fan of a lot of color, go for muted mauves and sheer berry. If you like color, but want to stay classic, cranberry red and deep berry tones are always good. Feeling brave? Try a bold purple!  Below are a few of the best fall lipstick items.

YSL Lipstick

Yves Saint Laurent ‘Rouge Volupté Pearl’ Lipstick iconin Insolent Beige (pictured) or Mesmerizing Purple will give your lips a deep fall hue. YSL Rouge Volupte can be worn sheer if applied lightly or can be dense and dark if applied with a heavier hand. It also is truly amazing in terms of feel and is one of my top recommended luxury lipsticks.

MAC Fabulous Feline Lip Glass

The Lap of Luxury Lip Glass from the M·A·C Fabulous Felines Palace Pedigreed Collection is a rich purple gloss that can be worn alone or over a light or deep lipstick shade for a unique and bold fall look.
