The thing about me is, that I’m a self-proclaimed queen of impulse purchases! I picked up this Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond Beige Diademe, and I don’t regret it one bit! I usually go for bold pinks and reds when it comes to lip colors, but this time I made an exception. Simply because I could not get this gorgeous nude shade out of my mind. So lets get started right away, and read on as I slice and dice this offering from one of the most loved beauty brands in the world – Nivea.
Official Claim: Nivea VOLUME SHINE PURE DIAMOND is a light refracting glossy lipstick infused with pure diamond powder and high shine polymers. The innovative, optical effect creates a glamorous shine on your lips and the creamy texture provides maximum moisture. This lipstick glides effortlessly over lips giving a full and vibrant color. The rich texture blends easily for a smooth, non-sticky application.Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond : 62 Beige Diademe
I would have to agree about the moisturisation – the lipstick glides like melted butter! In just one swipe, it fills your lips with intense color in a high glossy finish, making them look oh so kissable! Having tried many creamy lipsticks, I was delighted to find that this beauty is not sticky at all!Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond : 62 Beige Diademe
The nude beige shade gives a barely there finish, and goes perfectly with all complexions, neutral outfits and smokey eyes.Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond : 62 Beige Diademe on application of a single stroke
However, its super creamy texture makes the lipstick rather brittle, and threatens to break even at the slightest pressure. Butter fingers beware! This delicate princess is not made for hardship.
Also, while the moisture from the lipstick lasts you upto 5-7 good hours, its color and sheen doesn’t. As early as 2 hours after applying it, you will find the color and sheen fading, and will require regular touch ups.Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond : 62 Beige Diademe
Before swatch is how the lipstick looks at the time of application, and an after swatch after a lapse of 2 hours. The sheen has been visibly reduced and the color looks less rich.
However its moisturising abilities, glossy finish, and coverage especially between the creases makes it all worth it!
– Non sticky – Intense color in just one swipe – Moisturizing – Creamy, glossy finish with full crease coverage – Nude shade suits all complexions and most outfits
Cons: – Shine diminishes in a few hours – Extremely brittle – Poor outer packaging, making it look like a cheap counterfeit
Slice of Dubai Verdict: The Nivea Volume Shine Pure Diamond Beige Diademe lipstick is a good addition to your beauty booty, if you love nude colors. However, it is not the best option if longevity is your priority, as it requires frequent touch-ups to maintain it’s sheen. This lip hue makes for good day-wear, and even works well for a night party when paired with a bold smokey eye and a gold shimmering number!
