They have 3 pretty, everyday shades in this range- Hot Pink, Pop Red and Coral Crush.

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Hot Pink-

Hot Pink is a bright fuschia pink with cool undertones that suits most Indian skin tones. The colour gives you a subtle hint of pink when applied to the lips so it is not an on-the-face hot pink unlike the name of this shade.

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Pop Red-

Pop Red is a bright red shade that can brighten up a dull day. I did not expect this shade to look this rich!

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayon Coral Crush-

Coral Crush is again a bright shade of coral/orange. I am not very fond of coral lip shades but the subtleness of this shade makes it one of my favourite everyday summer colour!

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons come in regular plastic lip crayon packaging. It is a fat, twist-up pencil with a transparent lid. Although the tip of the crayon still remains outside even after twisting the crayon down till the end which can damage the tip if you are inattentive while putting the lid on. What I liked about their packaging is that each crayon is colour-coded and also the transparent lids make it easier for you to pick your desired colour in a hurry.

My Experience with Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons-

Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons Review and Swatches | Cherry On Top

If you are following me for a long time you’d know that I am obsessed with lip balms. I hate the feeling of chapped lips and I cannot step out of the house without moisturizing my lips. For daily use, I prefer tinted lip balms that protect my lips also give me some sort of colour to the lips. I cannot leave my house in bare lips. Mostly, I am into lipsticks but sometimes you just want to ditch the lipsticks and go for something natural-looking.

When I received the Nivea Coloron Lip Crayons, I was beyond happy because I found what I was looking for quite some time now. These crayons are insanely pigmented and oh-so hydrating. The longevity of these crayons is not very bad considering they are very soft and sheeny. The texture of these crayons is very smooth and creamy so that they don’t accentuate the creases on your lips. The crayons literally glide on your lips. You can lessen the shine by dabbing a tissue onto your lips or by applying some translucent powder on top. I like them as they are. These are also transferable. The colour fades to the edges after a meal, but they provide long-lasting moisture. Even after the colour is gone, your lips are hydrated. You can always reapply these whenever necessary.

Overall, these tinted lip balms are a must-try if you are looking for something like these within budget. I am very happy with the shades and the colour payoff. The moisture they provide is very satisfying.

Hey guys, hope you all are doing well. Today, I will be sharing my views on a range of products that I have been enjoying using for the past few weeks. It has been almost over a month since I started using the SkinCafe lip care products that they had sent me and now I think I am ready to share my final words. I know I took a long time but, that is how I work, I take too much time to review skincare products in order to understand the pros and the cons well and share a crystal-clear view on any product.

I am a lover of handmade skincare products. It gives me a feeling that I am doing something that is the best for my skin. When I received the package from SkinCafe, I was more than excited to try them out. I got three beautiful products from SkinCafe- Choco Chip and Cookies lip scrub, English Trifle lip butter and a Strawberry Shortcake tinted lip balm. Before starting with the review, let me tell you a few words about the brand.

SkinCafe.in is a brand that makes and sells handcrafted lip care products. They have a huge range of products across three categories i.e. lip scrubs, lip butter and tinted balms. All their products are named after some popular desserts. When you go to their website you would probably think that you have come to an online patisserie (check it out yourself, here). All their products are made after you place an order ensuring that you get the freshest products every time you place an order. I really liked this. Their products are cruelty-free, vegan and free from parabens. What more one could ask for? All the ingredients they use are listed on a separate page to avoid any vagueness and to ensure that there is always clarity between the manufacturer and the buyer.

Now that we know enough of the brand, let’s jump into the review-

Packaging- I am not going to lie, the packaging is the first thing that made me excited to try out the products. Each product comes in a cute little box with the illustration of a cupcake on each of them. It can give a tough competition to any luxury confectioner. As you open the box, you notice a small glass jar that contains the product. The packaging for all their products looks exactly the same. All of them come in glass jars with a plastic lid and labels. They all come in glass jars that are biodegradable but I did not find them the best things to travel with.

SkinCafe Choco Chip and Cookies Lip Scrub

SkinCafe Lip Care Range- Scrub, Butter & Tinted Balm Review| cherryontopblog.com

Price- Rs 950/- (9g)

Ingredients- Cocoa Nibs, Jojoba Oil

The SkinCafe Choco Chip and Cookies lip scrub is a product that works really well for chapped lips. There was a time when I was suffering from severely chapped lips even in summers. A regular scrubbing with this Choco Chip and Cookies has helped to reduce the dryness a lot. One can definitely notice softer and plumper lips right after using the scrub. I wet my lips first and then scoop out a little of the scrub with my fingers onto my palm and then massage it very gently onto the lips. If you ever feel that the scrub is dry, which happened to me at first, you can mix a drop of olive oil or coconut oil with the scrub and then apply it. The best thing about this Choco Chip and Cookies lip scrub is that it contains very fine scrubbing particles that do not feel harsh on the lips. More than that, this scrub smells divine, exactly like dark chocolate. It’s quite impossible to not lick it once. I tried that and believe me it does not taste like dark chocolate!

SkinCafe English Trifle Lip Butter

SkinCafe Lip Care Range- Scrub, Butter & Tinted Balm Review| cherryontopblog.com

Price- Rs 850 (9g)

Ingredients- Candelilla Wax, Cocoa Butter, Sweet Almond Oil and Banana infusion.

I never found a lip balm that has the perfect consistency as butter in order to keep my lips hydrated for the longest time. It was only until I discovered this English Trifle lip butter from SkinCafe. This product does not only make my lips soft but also it keeps them moisturized for a long time. It stays on my lips for good 4-5 hours. Sadly, it does not survive a meal. This product has become my salve for the drier days. I would suggest you guys to try this at least once and you will know what I am trying to say. I never tried English Trifles so I don’t know what to expect from the fragrance of the product but, whatever it is, it smells good. This lip butter does not contain petroleum jelly.

SkinCafe Strawberry Shortcake

SkinCafe Lip Care Range- Scrub, Butter & Tinted Balm Review| cherryontopblog.com

Price- Rs 900 (9g)

Ingredients- Beeswax, Mango Seed Butter, Avocado Oil and Strawberry infusion.

The Strawberry Shortcake Lip Tint Balm from SkinCafe is supposed to be a tinted lip balm as you can tell from the name. This balm has a buttery consistency, glides on the lips smoothly making them soft and supple and adding a subtle hint of pink colour to them. The colour is not as intense as I had imagined but it’s quite natural and perfect for an everyday purpose. This balm makes my lips really hydrated. It smells exactly like strawberries!

Overall, I liked the range of products from SkinCafe. The fact that they are purely vegan, cruelty-free and free from harsh chemicals like parabens, excites me a lot to keep using them forever. I would highly recommend their products. They are worth a try. A regular use of this range of products has changed my lip care regime completely. My lips do not feel dry anymore. The price of the product may be on the higher side but they are totally worth it. If you are sceptical about trying them for the first time and also hesitating to pay such a price for a new brand, then you can try their Lip Care Combos which would be a smart choice. Each these combos contain three products from each category (scrubs, butters and tinted balms). Each combo is a set of three products of 3g each and retails at Rs 900. You can buy SkinCafe products online from their official website.

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing great. Today, I am going to share my views on the new Himalaya Herbals lip care lip balms. If you guys follow me on Instagram then you already have seen how these balms look like. Now, I am going to let you know how these lip balms actually are. So, this is going to be an overview of the newly launched lip balms by Himalaya Herbals.
Recently, Himalaya Herbals has launched five new lip balms that are made of all-natural ingredients, completely sans preservatives, petroleum jelly, mineral oil and silicones. They are enriched with 100% natural colours, Vitamin E and antioxidants. Himalaya Herbals is known for using natural ingredients and that is why it has been my favourite since my teenage days. I am so glad that they have come up with these newly formulated lip balms with new and exciting packaging.

All New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.com


Price- 125 INR for 4.5gms

Variants- There is a total of five variants that were launched- Natural Soft Vanilla, Rich Cocoa Butter, Peach Shine, Strawberry Shine and Litchi Shine. Now, as you might have assumed by the names, the new Himalaya Herbals lip care balms are not only different in flavours but also in their formulation and purpose. The variants Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter are solely created to nourish your lips and are enriched with natural ingredients. The other three variants- Peach Shine, Strawberry Shine and Litchi Shine are meant for adding a bit of tinge and glossiness to your lips. These are also enriched with natural vitamin E, antioxidants and colours. However, only Strawberry Shine among the three has a hint of colour to it. I have swatched the other two but even after a few swipes nothing showed up. Strawberry Shine has a bit of pink tone to it but it barely showed up when I applied it to my lips. It might be because I have slightly pigmented lips.

Packaging- The new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms come in a plastic twist up packaging. The colour of the cases signifies the colour of the product inside. The two variants, Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter come in a slightly different packaging. The casing of these two are matte, and the bottom parts are also different (Please refer to the photos). Unlike these two variants, the other three Shine variants have shinier casing and the bottoms are transparent. The packaging is really sturdy and lightweight. The lid closes tightly.

Formula- The formula of this balms is amazing. They are really hydrating but does not feel too much intense or heavy on the lips. One can feel the richness of them once applied. I felt that the Shine variants are a little less in richness but they are extremely moisturising. All these balms give you a healthy look to the lips. Even those Shine variants do not make the lips look glossy as if you have a lipgloss on. They just make them nourished, lustrous and soft.
What I liked- The new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms do what they claim. They moisturise, make the lips soft and make them look lustrous. The lip balms stay put on my lips for an average of 5-6 hours. The first two variants, Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter are more long lasting than the other three variants.
What I did not like- The only thing I disliked about these balms is their aroma. I don’t know if you guys will feel the same or not but I have a sensitive nose and probably that is the reason I found the fragrance of these balms a bit overpowering. Although the aroma is not long-lasting, it fades away as time passes but somehow I don’t like flavoured lip balms. I won’t consider it as a downside but the lip balms tend to melt in this extremely hot and humid weather, especially the Rich Cocoa Butter one. But, storing them in a cool place minimises the problem.

My views on the new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care balms-

Overall, I really liked these newly formulated lip balms by Himalaya Herbals. I think it is a great value for the price you pay. Also, these are made of all natural ingredients which is always a plus point. I would recommend these balms to everybody. I am using the Rich Cocoa Butter lip balm the most among the lot. I could not find any product list written anywhere on the packaging. The shelf-life of these balms are almost a year. Also, these new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms claim to save your lips from environmental harms but these do not contain any SPF.
Let me know if you have used any of these lip balms. I would love to know your views on this. I will be back with a new post soon. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!
