CREATE YOUR OWN LIP BALM DESIGN
Weâ€™ve seen fashion designers partner with cosmetics companies to create special collectionsâ€”the new LancÃ´me Show Collection by Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz is a perfect example, as is Michelle Obama fave Tracy Reeseâ€™s past collaboration with Clinique. But now you can take design into your own hands and create a personalized Nivea lip balm case.
You can choose from over 400 patterns and symbols, 12 design themes, and five lip balm formulations to customize your own tube. You can design the tube in just minutes on a dedicated micro site, StyleUncapped.com and have it delivered within 2 weeks. And the real fabulous news is the price: just $6 each for 1-5 balms, $5 each for 6-20 balms, and $4 each for 20+ balms. Perfect for shower gifts, pool party, favors or any summer celebration, and so much more personal than sending guests off with a cookie.
If you are feeling a little short on creativity, never fear. Nivea has partnered with fashion designer Rebecca Minkoff for this effort. Minkoff created her own limited-edition design, based on her current 2013 collection, which is also available on StyleUncapped.com. Inspired by 60â€™s and 70â€™s beach glam, the Minkoff designs are available in green, blue, and red.
Go all out and be as wild or sedate as you feel. The formulation is completely up to you too. Just pick one of these five: Kiss of Smoothness SPF 10, Kiss of Shimmer SPF 10, Kiss of Moisture, Kiss of Cherry, or Kiss of Milk & Honey.
