NIVEA: Style, Uncapped


*Compensation for this post was provided by NIVEA.*


We can all agree that there a few things sexier than soft lips. One of the easiest ways to get kissable lips is to use lip balm, and if you’re reading this site, I’m sure you do. Well thanks to NIVEA (and my design skills) your lip balm cap just got a little sexier.

On Monday, I attended the launch party for, the DIY lip balm cap design site by NIVEA.The event was held in the penthouse of the swanky Standard East Village Hotel. Keeping with the DIY theme, we were allowed design our own cocktails as well as our lip balm caps.

Fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff was on hand to show off a few items from her resort collection and her retro-inspired lip balm caps. “I’m thrilled to be partnering with Nivea,” she said. “With this first of its kind program, we will give everyone in America the opportunity to make their lip cap their best accessory.” As someone who makes her living designing coveted bags, Minkoff knows all about accessories. She also raffled off two of her Skylar Mini cross body bags and guess what? I was won of the lucky winners. Yay!

I never thought about the need for a personalized lip balm cap before but now I’m sold. A personalized cap could be a great birthday gift (I have several friends who are obsessed with lip balms) or favor at a wedding, shower or any special event. At the event I had a momentary brain freeze while trying to design a cap, but I finally settled on a design I like. I called it “Smooches.” Isn’t it lovely?


Smooches! launched today and now you can get in on the action. When you log on to the site, you can design your own caps and choose which of the five different balms you’d like to purchase for your cap. The designs can be shared across social media for consumers to vote on and purchase. I personally think Smooches, is the best, but there are some other nice ones there too. The custom capped balms start at $5.99.
