Stopped by Walgreen’s yesterday and picked up the L’Oreal HIP Jelly Balm. They were on sale for $2.49 a piece (regularly $9). L’Oreal items were also buy one, get one half off so I got all of mine for under $10.
So far I’m liking them a lot. The colors are sheer but still noticeable. It’s moisturizing and the staying power is pretty decent. I had to reapply after 2-3 hours so it’s not so bad. One down side to this lip balm is that it’s sticky which is pretty understandable since it’s a jelly balm but because it doesn’t have a doe foot applicator your finger gets very sticky. One thing I do like about it is the smell. I know sounds a little weird but the scent of these lip balms are almost vanilla-ly-ish?
One thing to note is that these lip balms are very pricey if not on sale. Although, I do recommend that everyone try these out I don’t think it’s worth paying the full price. If you would like to give these a try then purchase them when they’re on sale or something.
As an added bonus I also picked up these nail polishes when I grabbed the lip balms. Sinful Color was picked up at Walgreens, Hidden Treasure at K-Mart, and Shooting Star at Target.
