Nyassa Lip Balm Review – Passion Fruit

Hi Friends,

Been a while that i did an actual full fledge product review. So thought of jumping right back into it

Today, i am reviewing the Nyassa‘s Lip Balm – Passion Fruit.

IMG_3406

For those who don’t know about Nyassa, here’s something you should know. Nyassa claims to create their products by blending pure and natural ingredients with rare and exotic fragrances to offer their users a complete and unmatched mind and body experience.

They have a wide variety of products including Handmade Soaps, Body Lotions, Body Butters, Lip Balms, Body Scrubs, Hand Cream, Face Wash, Face Cream, Shampoo , Conditioner, Body Mists among others.They also have an exciting range of home fragrance products that includes Diffusers and Diffuser Oils and Air Perfumes.

One of the biggest USPs of Nyassa is that their products are 100% vegetarian. Their products have no SLS, SLES or Parabens and they don’t do animal testing as well.

With that background around the company, lets jump right into the lip balm that i am going to review for you.

Nyassa has 5 flavours in Lip Balms

  • Mixed Candy
  • Bubblegum
  • Passion Kiss
  • Juicy Berry
  • Cola Twist

The lip balms come in the classic glass jar weighing 5gms for Rs.250. All the lip balms are priced at Rs.250. Though, you can get them cheaper during online sales.

The Lip balm is packed with great moisturising ingredients like Shea butter, sweet almond oil, jojoba oil, olive oil beeswax and Vitamin E. The essential fatty acids and the anti-oxidants in Shea Butter offer superior hydration and repair dry and chapped lips. Beeswax helps in offering hydration and enhanced lip care.

They have a longevity of 24 months from the date of manufacture. Which is pretty good in case of lip balms. They are readily available in stores like Home Centre and online on their company website & on Nykaa as well. Links to both are provided

 

IMG_3405I picked the flavour Passion Kiss. This flavour is a perfect marriage of Passion Fruit and Exotic Crushed Rose Petals. It has a very sweet smell – similar to the soap & glory products. If you like soap & glory products, you will relate to the smell of this lip balm. It smells amazing. Thats what made me buy it! However, the smell is not very over powering. It vanishes after 10 minutes of application. It has no color and is sheer.

Since these come in the conventional jar form, you have to use your fingers to apply it. One of the things that i am not a big fan of. I personally prefer the stick form and have been a die hard fan of Maybeliine Baby Lips

Upon application, this lip balm gets soaked into the lips within 10-15 minutes. It doesn’t leave that wet smooth effect like Maybeliine Baby Lips. So, one may also feel it to be less moisturising as compared to baby lips.

I have applied this at night and found my lips nice and soft in the morning. I also apply it as i start prepping up my skin for makeup, it dries off on the lips by the time i finish my face makeup.

Its good to moisturise your lips before you apply liquid matte lipsticks and this one doesn’t disappoint.

Now coming to the price point. To be honest, this is the priciest lip balm that i have purchased. Other lip balms available in the market from Maybelline, Neutrogena, Nivea etc range between 50 – 200 rupees max. Here’s link to other lip balms  . I can appreciate that pricing of this lip balm could be high due to the natural products being used in it. (petroleum free). Lip balms from other natural product companies like Kama Ayurveda or Body shop are priced anywhere around Rs.350-550

Some suggestions that i feel Team Nyassa can look into for their lip balm range are:

  • Consider Stick form – it makes it more user friendly and hygenic
  • Consider launching color variants. Sometimes they are best replacements to glossy lipsticks
  • Maybe the beeswax makes it quick drying/soaking into the lips – may want to change the proportion of that. The very purpose of a lip balm is to feel the lips soft and moisturised. If i don’t get that feel for long hours, it kind of defeats the purpose for me personally

All in all, i don’t regret buying this lip balm. But would have loved it more, had it been with the suggestions given above. I am sure Team Nyassa is listening 🙂

Let me know if you have used any other flavours from this brand. I would love to listen to your experience

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm Review! Love it

Hey Lovelies,

Apologies for not posting a blog in a while now but had been caught up at work. But i am back again with a quick one – reviewing the Maybelline Baby Lips Balm. There are around 5-6 different colors available in the market. My color is Berry Crush.

Maybelline Baby Lips Balm in Berry Crush

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Product:

  • Good texture – Doesnt feel very heavy on the lips…not very greecy or something.
  • Really moisturizes your lips and stays long. Maybelline claims that this balm protects and moisturizes for a full 8 hours.
  • I feel it helps peel away the dead/dry skin on lips really better. Maybelline claims that after 1 week, lips are visibly renewed, virtually reborn. I can feel this on my lips so back their claim.
  • Has a tiny bit of color to it – not color stain or something. Doesn’t stain your lips.
  • Has got little berry fragrance and tastes like berry too!
  • Cute packaging
  • Available in various colors
  • Decent pricing – 130-150 INR
  • Good value for money – you get quite a bit of product in there.

I tried applying it overnight on my lips and found my lips really soft and nourished in the morning. So, liked that feeling.

Maybelline also says you should Apply your lipcolor by starting in the center of your upper lip. Work from the center to the outer edges of your lip, following the contours of your mouth. Then glide across the entire bottom lip.

All in all, i like this product. There are around 5-6 other colors available in the market, would definitely repurchase this next time and try another color.

Finally found a good Gel Eyeliner!

Hey Lovlies,

Its Monday again and the week looks super hectic…but that ain’t gonna stop us from finding some happiness in small things of life here and there:)

I love eye makeup and i am very fond of eyeliners. I think it just completes the look. I personally don’t like to do touch-up on my makeup so prefer having products that last all day. My mission has always been to find a good eyeliner that i can use on my lash and water line both. My eyes are pretty watery so anything on the waterline doesn’t last long.

I had been in search of a good Gel eyeliner for a while and i found it! Its the Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner (Black)

I had researched quite and bit around these and tried almost all of them available in the market like B&D, Revlon, Lakme, etc but found them really dry and flaky. Thats when i came across this one from Maybelline. Bought it yesterday, tried it and loved it. So, here’s my experience with it.

Image

Pros:

  • Super creamy
  • Consistency is good
  • Lost lasting  – the package claims it to be lasting for 24 hrs
  • Comes with a nice stiff applicator brush and a lid to protect the brush
  • 2.8 gms of product for approx Rs.400/-. Think thats gonna last long.
  • No itching or burning when applied on water line
  • Smooth glide over the upper & lower lash line
  • Tried it on water line and stayed pretty well.
  • Smudge proof – once it settles, it doesn’t move.
  • Water proof – when i washed my face with water, some of it came off but most of it still remained on the eye…had to remove with eye makeup removal strips.

Cons:

  • Packaging is poor. Didnt quite like the lid of the bottle…looks like the lid of a cough syrup!
  • In India, they have only 2 colors – Black and Brown. The brown one has a little metallic feel to it and is not a dark brown as i would have loved it to be. I would have loved to have a Blue, Olive Green, Plum and dark brown shades in this line.

So, go grab one for yourself and enjoy! Do share your experiences or any other Gel Liners you think are better than this one…i’ll be happy to try them 🙂

Have a wonderful week ahead:)

Xoxo,

BeaushionDiva
