A Life of Style Product Review: L'Oreal HIP Jelly Balm

7.28.2008

Walgreens and CVS have had BOGO sales for the past couple of weeks on L'Oreal HIP products and I have made out like a BANDIT!!!
My new favorite item is L'Oreal Hip Jelly Balm in Plush. Normally I steer clear of potted glosses and balms because I detest having to use my finger to apply. However that issue was solved when I unearthed a VS retractable lip brush during a recent makeup brush count.
I love the consistency of this product. It's not sticky and it doesn't make your lips dry. Plush is a pretty in pink shade with the right amount of pigment and shine. You know how some glosses are just too sheer and you end up with yet another clear lip product? Well Jelly Balm is not like that at all. You can definitely see the color. Don't be freaked out by the brightness in the pot it's not neon bright, lol.
Just apply it with a lip brush and you're all set. This is my favorite lip product right now and I plan to test the other shades out during the next BOGO. I haven't tried the MAC Tendertones because my wallet and MAC are on the outs. I'd like to see how similar Jelly Balm is to the Tendertones but for now L'Oreal HIP is where its at.

Hey Kia! I'm good. Been putting your m/u tips to use and experimenting with more color.
I probably won't be able to hit the MAC counter until late September =( I would like to sample the Tendertones just to see what they're like.
