    Introduction to Lips

    Feast your eyes on Lips nicotine pouches, your one-stop destination for high-quality pouches designed for women. Lips offers an innovative and refreshing alternative to traditional nicotine, providing a discreet and convenient way to satisfy your wants.


    Lips is a unique brand in the nicotine pouch industry that consistently delivers top-notch quality for a women-centric consumer base. They’re all about condensing the typical pouch experience, meaning you don’t have to comb through an overly long list of flavours. By offering just an Original or Strawberry option, Lips makes it easy for you to discover what you like. 


    With Lips nicotine pouches, you get the satisfaction of a nicotine hit without the smoke or smell. Get the sweet smack of strawberry on your lips with Lips!

    Lips Nicotine Pouches – Look & Feel

    Lips prioritises quantity in its canisters. Whereas most brands offer somewhere around 20 pouches per can, Lips provides a whopping 25. More bang for your buck!


    Lips pouches come in a cool femme can that looks like it's straight out of a cosmetic space. The highlight of the design is an illustration showcasing a mouth munching on a strawberry. The vibrant pink and blue background makes this illustration pop even more. 


    Lips' commitment to delivering value is seen in the quantity offered per can. Each Slim can (their only format) contains an impressive 25 pouches, which is more than the industry standard. So, with Lips, you get quantity and quality with each purchase.

    Lips Pouches

    Lips nicotine pouches weigh in at 0.8g per pouch, a comfortable size that fits easily under the lip. With a nicotine strength of 12.8mg per pouch, these pouches pack a decent punch. 


    Best of all, Lips pouches offer a smooth, satisfying nicotine experience, maintaining the perfect balance between strength and flavour.

    Lips Flavours: What's Available and What's Good?

    Lips brings two enticing flavour profiles to the table, both of which have been perfected over time. Their Original flavour, an absolute classic, surprises users with a distinct cola taste, adding a vanilla-y twist to your nicotine experience.


    On the other hand, Lips' Strawberry nicotine pouches offer a tantalising mix of fruit and berry notes, delivering a fresh and vibrant flavour burst.

    Stephen's Review of Lips

    Not much in terms of flavour options. That said, the design was retro and the nicotine strength was solid. I also really liked the fruitiness of the Strawberry flavour. And it’s cool to see a brand specifically catering to women!

    Pros:
    1. Super cool packaging. Clearly more for women, but I liked that the design reminded me of a comic book.

    2. 12.8mg is a pretty solid nicotine hit.

    3. Great taste in the Strawberry flavour! Super fruity, which I love.
       

    Cons:
    1. Only two flavour options? I like more variety than that. I get that they’re trying to offer two refined choices, but it left me a tad underwhelmed.

    2. Not much in terms of nicotine variety, either. What if people want something lighter?
       

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐ 2/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐ 2/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    James' Review of Lips

    Not too shabby in terms of the nicotine hit. The can design was also pretty cool, too. But nothing citrusy? And nothing minty? I prefer a bit more variety than this in terms of flavours. It left me feeling just a tad underwhelmed. 

    Pros:
    1. The packaging is awesome.

    2. The two flavours they offer do taste quite solid.

    3. Good nicotine hit. On the stronger side.
       

    Cons:
    1. Having no minty or citrusy flavour options is pretty disappointing. 

    2. 12.8mg is a good nicotine hit, but I could go even stronger.
       

    Scoring:

    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐ 2/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


     

    Clare's Review of Lips

    I love the focus at Lips! Offering taste profiles and a design specifically for women is so cool, and not something you see a ton in this industry. (Actually, I’m not sure I’ve seen it at all!) I do wish they had lighter options and some sort of minty flavour, but overall, I was a fan!

    Pros:
    1. Such a cool design! It’s a bit punky and has some attitude! 

    2. The can is so sleek and comfy in my pocket. Love that I can be discreet! 

    3. Yum, that Strawberry flavour. Loved it!
       

    Cons:
    1. Having some milder options would be nice. I don’t always want that strong of a nicotine hit.
    2. More flavours would also be great. No mint? Seriously?!

    Scoring:


    Taste: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    Flavour Range: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Nicotine Strength: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5

    Design: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5/5

    Overall: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 3.8/5

    Lips Product Taste Test:

    Stephen: Normally I’m not the biggest fan of cola flavours, but this one had a nice touch of fruitiness to it. Not bad. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    James: Definitely prefer their Strawberry option, but the Original was still quite good. I liked the fruity undertones quite a bit. Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: Yum! Cola and fruit coalesce in one harmonious flavour. Left me nostalgic and thinking about childhood! Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.3/5

    Lips Strawberry Flavour

    Stephen: They definitely delivered with their Strawberry! It compares so well to other fruit-forward pouches I’ve tried. Without a doubt, my favourite of the two Lips flavours. Score: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4.5/5


    James: The flavour in this pouch lasted a long time, which was cool. But couldn’t they at least try to have some citrusy undertones with one of their flavours? Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3/5


    Clare: I liked the Strawberry offering, but I think it was just the slightest bit too sweet. Maybe mix in some mint and it would appeal to me more? Rating: ⭐⭐⭐ 3.5/5


    Overall rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5

    The Wombat Verdict – The Lips Range

    Overall, our taste testers enjoyed Lips nicotine pouches, especially the fruity punch they packed. If you yearn for the complex flavours of your favourite cola brand, look no further than Lips Original. And if you’ve got a sweet tooth, the Lips Strawberry variety will leave you satisfied! As for the nicotine strength? It was pretty solid—perfect for seasoned pouch enthusiasts.
