Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza Join NIVEA to announce the “Kiss of the Year” Contest

NIVEA recently held an event to announce the launch its Kiss of the Year Contest on Facebook – the Search for America’s Greatest Love Story, where one lucky couple will ring in the New Year with Mario Lopez and Courtney Mazza (NIVEA’s Kiss Ambassador Couple) on the NIVEA Kiss Stage in New York City’s Times Square and have their New Year’s Eve Kiss featured in Us Weekly!

NIVEA helped us get our lips kissably ready by introducing their newest lip indulgence, A Kiss of Olive Oil & Lemon (a wonderful lip balm that smells a bit lemony and that moisturizes like no other) and had our heart aflutter as they introduced past winning couples who shared their amazing stories that won them the opportunity to be the “Kiss of the Year” couple.
