Nivea Lip Butters: Caramel Cream Kiss, Raspberry Rose Kiss, and Vanilla Macadamia Kiss

I use Nivea products everyday in my beauty routine, especially their Kiss of Moisture lip balm. Nivea seems to rarely come out with new products. I was surprised when I saw these on the shelves, and decided to purchase the three out of four that looked most interesting. 



The three flavors I chose are Caramel Cream Kiss, Raspberry Rose Kiss, and Vanilla Macadamia Kiss. They are colorless on the lips, and come in well-filled tins! I adore the tins and the names. I really wish there would have been more fruit flavors. The one I didn't buy was original, but I love the formula on these, so I may buy it in the end.

Caramel Cream Kiss has a very strong kettle corn scent, which was too intense for me. Raspberry Rose Kiss, my favorite, smells like fresh raspberries with a faint scent of rose. Vanilla Macadamia Kiss was my least favorite. The scent was overpowering and smelled nothing of vanilla or macadamia, instead it was like a musky candle. 

Claims: "Rich formula melts onto lips providing long-lasting nourishment to make all your kisses better. Enriched with Shea Butter and Almond Oil to intensely moisturize and soothe dry lips for long-lasting care."
Pigmentation: They are colorless, when evenly applied to the lips. If applied thickly they can give a white cast that looks odd.
Finish/Texture: The finish is shiny, just as most lip butters are. The sheen quickly fades as the lips soak up the product. The texture is what makes this product amazing. It feels like silk, it will make you want to reapply all day long, even though you won't need to.
Lasting Power: Depending on how much I apply, I can get a whole day worth of moisture. The butter is so thick, that you only need a bit to moisturize the lips.
Packaging: They each come in a round, metal tin that is filled with product. The lid easily comes of but stays on securely. Make sure to have clean fingers since you will have to dip directly into the product before applying. 
Price/Availability: I paid $2.50 each at CVS

Likes: 
  • Smooth, rich texture
  • Hydrates/moisturizes the lips 
  • Extremely comfortable to wear
  • Easy to use, sturdy packaging
  • Don't need to be reapplied
  • Softens lips
Dislikes:
  • I wish there were more to choose from since Caramel and Vanilla Macadamia didn't work well for me. 
Overall:
Raspberry Rose is one of the best flavors I have ever found in a lip product. It smells exactly like fresh raspberries and roses, but it's subtle. The formula is rich and silky, and almost becomes addicting to reapply throughout the day. I love the way that the lip butter actually softens my lips and soaks into them, unlike other lip butters which just sit on top of the lips. Only a small amount of product is needed to completely moisturize the lips, so this small tin will last me quite a long time. I am really happy that I discovered Raspberry Rose, it's becoming a favorite!
