5 stars out of 5

Pigmented, glossy, Ulta Jelly Gloss Lip Gel has it all and it’s on sale for four bucks today. What more could you want!? Now is a good time to grab Jelly Gloss Lip Gel or the Ulta’s Juicy Jelly Lipgloss I recently reviewed! Two great picks for Spring lip looks!

Here’s the deets!

I purchased Ulta Jelly Gloss Lip Gel and a Juicy Jelly Lipgloss on a whim a few weeks ago when there was one of their traditional BOGO offers. I was quite happy to see some of Ulta’s Beauty Collection on sale during the 21 Days of Beauty as I wanted a few more shades and at $4 each they are a way better deal than the BOGO one.

Ulta Jelly Gloss Lip Gel Swatches (Boardwalk)

Ulta’s makeup collection is as weird as the Sephora one in the fact sometimes their stuff is a complete miss and other times you find gems. In this case Jelly Gloss Lip Gel was a win for me. But if you don’t like thicker lipglosses, don’t bother. This is a thick, creamy, full-coverage lipgloss that has a glossy finish. I think lipgloss is one of the weirdest things in the world of beauty. Most times you can spend $20 bucks plus on a lipgloss and end up with sheer nothingness to show for it. It’s always nice to run across a lipgloss that actually has pigment. Jelly Gloss Lip Gel is completely opaque your first application! This isn’t a sheer lipgloss by any means! It provides full color on a single layer. It has a really thick gel texture but it adheres to lips in a smooth, even finish that’s glossy and shiny. It doesn’t migrate nor feather and wears for a good four to give hours on my drier lips with a very nice hydrating feel. For sensitive users, it does have a sweet flavor and fragrance.

Overall, it’s just a well formulated lipgloss that checks off all the marks! Pigmented, check! Glossy, check! Long-wearing, check! Cheap AF, check!

Grab one or a few! I think you’ll love them as much as I do!

Where to buy


Ulta Jelly Gloss Lip Gel is a lipgloss that arrives in a squeeze tube which holds 0.5 oz of gloss and will set you back $9 (on sale now for $4). It has a light, sweet flavor and fragrance with a formula that’s a thicker gel texture which is hydrating and lovely on drier lips. The gloss is extremely pigmented with a shiny finish that wears comfortably for four to five hours without migrating or feathering.


  • Cheap!
  • Pigmented, long-wearing, and glossy!


  • Thick which might be an issue on windy days when your hair is down 🙂


Ulta Jelly Gloss Lip Gel is a great pick up for anyone that wants a super pigmented lipgloss that wears long!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Your review is right on time. I have them in my favorites list but I hadn’t tried them out yet. I’ll popping by Ulta today to get some of those singles from their brand. There’s a matte brown that looks good plus a terracotta orange that’s calling my name.

      I picked up a few more! I really like them! Don’t buy them though if you don’t like thick glosses! They are pretty thick ;-D but not sticky or tacky! Pigment is outstanding! for four bucks can’t beat it!

    I got 2 of these on a BOGO a while ago and I just love them! Maybe I’ll go back for more during the event.

    I haven’t bought much of Ulta’s makeup collection, but I’ve found their lip products to be very good (at least what I’ve tried). I’m also happy with their new matte cream eyeshadow.

        Yeah! Its in a tube with a wand and has some good reviews. Apparently a little goes a long way but the applicator is a bit bulky.

    The only Ulta makeup item I like is the lip liners that are made in Germany.
