Doing Drugstore: L'Oreal HiP Jelly Balm in Luscious

Doing Drugstore: L'Oreal HiP Jelly Balm in Luscious

I've sure you've seen L'Oreal's HiP (High Intensity Pigment) collection. It's hard to miss thanks to its more modern packaging and a brighter color selection than the brand's regular line. I decided to try the darkest shade of its Jelly Balm, Luscious ($9), which reminds me of Benefit Benetint Lip Balm with a touch less purple.

Jelly Balm is surprisingly unsticky, unscented, and not heavily pigmented (as in, so long as you know where your lips are, you can apply it without a mirror). Luscious is a universally flattering cranberry that looks and feels light on your lips, not waxy or plastic-y. Of course, it doesn't contain any vitamins or SPF protection, so maybe it just feels healthy. But I guess it's the rare lip balm that's going to make a major impact on your life expectancy?

Anyway, I can't imagine the other colors looking very different, but at $9 a pop, at least I can afford more than one. While it's not what you'd expect from the way the color looks in the tub, Jelly Balm in Luscious was a nice surprise. A surprise I'll definitely reapply.

Thanks so much for the review, I've been dying to try it but didn't know what the colour payoff would be so held back. Now I'll go ahead and try a few -- I think someone has them on buy one get one free this week. Off to check the weekly flyers...

I saw this in CVS the other day but I was afraid to try it because of the word "jelly". I have had good luck with other HIP products (I especially like their eyeliner) so I might have to give them a second look.

I have two of these: Plush and Ripe. I love them! I can definitely compare them to MAC's Tendertones, but with less shimmer.
