Strongest points
• Nice neat packaging
• Lovely edible candy smell
• Has moisturising and lip caring properties
Weakest points
-Too solid texture
-Doesn't feel good on lips
Summary
I can't call it a classic colourless lip balm, as on lips it appears as a violet-pinkish lipstick with pearly particles. I can't say I totally liked that colour and that sheen. The colour is a bit odd and cheap-looking and the lilac shade doesn't completely suit my face. The next strange thing for me was that the texture is too hard and on applying the balm you have to press on lips. In this way, it doesn't go on smoothly and it takes an effort to apply it on lips. Whether it's due to the metallic-like particles which seem to scrape lips on applying the balm or its hard texture, but this feature can be especially troubling for sensitive lips, I assume. Moreover this is particularly inconvenient when you're in a hurry and need to put on your lips quickly.
However the balm seems to keep its promises in regards to providing daily moisturising care and protection for your lips. Even though I am not keen on how it feels on my lips, after it's worn off you can feel your lips smoothed and softened for long.
To sum up all the above, I can't recommend it as a regular lip balm but it can go well enough as a lipstick with some caring properties, although I'd hardly repurchase it because of its texture.

for people who do not care about the looks of the product but who like to use lipbalms in the winter

Strongest points
- light texture
- good shimmering and general looks (if used in one or two swipes tops)
- pleasant smell
Weakest points
- babyish-looking packaging (strongly reminds cosmetics for kids)
- have to be re-applied after some time
Summary
Creators of Nivea TM care products obviously decided to combine health product with a glossy item producing Nivea Lip Care Pearl & Shine. I would say that they were almost successful. The balm indeed serves as a good protector and moisturizer of the lips. If applied modestly it looks quite decent and not vulgar, it even manages to avoid that stupid "yellow teeth" effect which a majority of pink or rosy shaded lipsticks tend to accomplish to my utter chagrin.
The packaging has proved to be a little disappointment though - it looks babyish, just like a tube of lipstick for kids. It is not like am a CEO of some corporation and will be ashamed to take this balm out of my purse and re-apply it at some gala evening but I really wish the creators of the product would make it more mature and stylish.
The effect of the balm is not a very lasting one, but it lasts long enough.
In general I would describe this good as a good solution for romantic and/or "nude" style make-up in winter.

This is not the best lip balm I have tried by Nivea. I think they have tried to be too clever by adding shimmer to a product that is predominantly a repair and protect balm! The balm is tasteless and contains Shea butter, Jojoba oil and vitamin E which are naturally conditioning and moisturizing on the lips. The balm is housed in a practical twist up tube and the product itself is a subtle pink with visible added shimmer. When applied to the lips it was surprisingly pale pink and actually looked a little odd and obvious on my lips. I found the shimmer a little too metallic and if you have cracked lips it does unfortunately settle into the damaged areas. The balm itself is quite heavy duty in texture and I did find it slightly oily but it did give instant moisture. The balm very quickly repairs damaged lips but I simply did not like the shimmer metallic effect which I did not find attractive to look at at all
