Loving you L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balm for super glossy lips on the cheap. MAC Tendertones are nice but I never fell completely in love with them, after discovering L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balms I’d say that any love or like I had for MAC Tendertones is overs, these are WAY better (and cheaper too)!
Jump for it.
Considering HIP stands for High Intensity Pigment I’d say it delivers on this deal. Jelly Balm are quite nicely pigmented with a beautifully glossy formula and a comfortable wear on lips plus a friendly price tag make them a total Muse Approval for purchase.
Much like MAC Tendertones these come in a heavy glass jar and are a soothing balm-like treatment for lips. I like to think of them as a gloss in a jar as they have a high glossy finish with a nice color payoff. The fact you have to dip in to apply could sway people as believe me I totally understand that germy-phobe feel when it comes to touching product however I’m choosing to disregard this and just enjoy the incredible formula. The formula not only leaves lips with a nice pop of color and a glossy finish but also sports a fruity, sweet taste.
It deserves to be mentioned I’m not keen on balms aside from Rosebud Salve. I’m not really all that interested in applying a balm on my lips unless I have chapped lips aside from this it’s rare I reach for a balm of any kind. I’m not sure if they could be deemed as a balm as they are more of a glossy treat for lips.
I tried out two colors but there are a total of six, which will definitely be hauled shortly by yours truly. The two shades I tried were Savory and Luscious. Savory was a true peach and Luscious, the pigmented of the two, is a berry wine shade.
Overall, I have to say these are a total winner for me. The inexpensive price tag definitely appeals but the incredible formula is really what captures and holds my interest. I love how they glide onto my lips and leave behind a glossy, natural hint of gloss.
Total Muse Approval for purchase.
