Do you want natural volume?

Do you want lips like Angelina’s? Have you ever considered lip injections? Well, if you don’t have the budget, what do you do? There are products out there such as Lip Venom and the like but they cost some money. So, what does a regular working girl do? For only Php17o, she can buy this:

The Nivea Natural Volume promises to provide you with natural volume and beautiful shine. I was intrigued when I saw this at Watsons sometime in September.

It doesn’t make your lips plump up instantly but because of the collagen, moisture gets locked in making your lips healthier. The shine also gives an illusion of plumpness.

I personally did not see/feel any difference. I think it’s just regular lip gloss. Or maybe I’m just not paying enough attention plus the fact that I don’t use it everyday. Maybe you have to use it everyday to see results. It also says that it’s not sticky. Well, it’s a bit sticky but not as annoying as regular lip gloss.

Here’s what the product looks like:

It’s like pink goo. Hehe. Just kidding! It has tiny sparkles to add shine. On my first few weeks of using this, a clear watery liquid just comes out so I thought that it’s a clear gel. After that, the pink goo came out so I was really surprised. I think I got an old stock that’s why it was a bit watery. Here it is on my lips:

This is on bare lips. It’s only now that I’ve noticed that it can stand alone. But I think I’ll still use this with a bit of lip balm. I’m just not used to applying anything without a lip balm.

I’m quite satisfied with this product as I use it as a regular lip shine. I also like the fact that it’s not too shiny like you have oil on your lips. It’s SPF 30+ and protects against UVA and UVB rays. I will not repurchase though as I still have tons of lip products to finish.


  1. Good review E! I don't need a lip plumper because my lips are naturally full. :/ Hehehe. >o<"

  2. Hi Sugar! Thanks! Yes, you have lovely lips!

  3. not really much of a fan of lip glosses kasi ang sticky nila sa lips.. but you said hindi masaydo sticky 'to.. so i might try it :) I'm a nivea lip balm user anyway :)

  4. Hi Hazel! Yes, it's not as sticky as Lip Ice and other brands of lip gloss that I've tried. I also apply this with a brush for more control. = ) Do let me know how it goes for you!
