REVIEW: L'Oreal HIP Jelly Balm in Plush 120

The Claim: "Soothes and protects your lips.. sheer mouthwatering color is a real treat."

Overall: 5 out of 5
Packaging:4 out of 5
Price: $5-$10
Would you buy this again? Yes! YES!

This actually came out a year ago but I wasn't really in the loop til this summer so I thought I missed my chance since they are limited edition in Canada. However, I was at London Drugs and saw this in the clearance rack for $5.50 CAD (it was originally $9.99) so I had to pick it up! I hear this is comparable to MAC's tinted lip conditioner in Pink Fish which I don't own, so I am in no place to compare...sorry! However, I am loving this product more than my Nivea Light Kiss lip balm! The consistency is smooth and not too heavy and it really does relieve dry lips and conditions it while adding a subtle hint of cool pink (I got the color in PLUSH). The packaging is not sanitary because you have to dip your finger in it. I never carry jarred products in my purse and apply it throughout the day. I only use this in the morning while I'm putting on my face and by the time I'm done, my lips are soft and ready for the application of the lipstick. Also, this lip blam lasts a very very long time, maybe 2-4 hours if I'm not eating in between and when I wipe it off, my lips are still soft to the touch! To conclude, I love this stuff! Wish it were more readily available here in Canada!

The top look so nice and plump that I didn't want to stick my finger in it! ... but I did.

TOP: Very dry lips!..lacking water.. I'm bad with that.
Bottom: Nourished with Jelly Balm in Plush! I like how it lightens my pigmented lips too!
