I love having a whole bunch of lip balms in my makeup bag and alternating which ones I use. I bought Nivea’s A Touch of Shimmer because I thought it would hydrate and soften my lips while adding a subtle pink shimmer. The verdict? I was really disappointed and eventually ended up tossing it.
The moisturizing effect does not seem to last more than about 20 minutes and actually ends up making your lips feel dryer than before. What’s even worse is that if your lips are even slightly chapped, bits of shimmer stay within the grooves in your lips even after you think you’ve wiped them clean–not a pretty sight. Definitely not worth your $2.99, IMHO.
