L’oreal Hip Jelly Lip Balm in “Plush” Review and swatches
Item: L’oreal Hip Jelly Lip Balm in “Plush”
Where to Buy: at your local drugstores (CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid/Target)
- Smells AMAZING (like cotton candy)
- Is not sticky, glides on very opaque
- lightweight on the lips (not tacky like lipgloss)
- gives your lips a subtle color – natural looking
- not too much of a shine
- in a pot/jar and you have to use your finger
- glass (for those that are clumsy like myself might drop/break it)
- does not moisturize as well
- not long lasting/need to reapply often
- no SPF
- Price is high for only 0.159oz of product
the packaging is sleek and modern (resembles a MAC Paint Pot, just a bit thinner) – although it is glass, it’s rather sturdy/durable and quite heavy. it looks sophisticated and the product inside once you open looks like pure perfection.
my only gripe about this, for someone that is a germaphobe like myself – is having to dip my finger in there all the time, due to the fact it does not last very long on your lips. i found myself having to reapply every 30-45 minutes. Although it was not very moisturizing, it did not dry out my lips. The smell was amazing and the hint of color on my lips was perfect for my summery adventures outdoors. This lip balm was also perfect for days i didn’t want to wear lipstick but didn’t want nude lips. the texture is not sticky, it’s not too greasy – it reminds me of MAC Tendertones if any of you are familiar.
Overall: (Just a summary of what you thought of the product) So overall, if your a big fan of lip balms that smell amazing, you don’t mind them in a pot and the price is not an issue – this is definitely for you. Plush was perfect for me for the hot days out where I was in a rush and wanted the natural look. it wasn’t overly shiny, nor greasy – but having to reapply so often was a turn off for me. Not a total bust since i absolutely love the color and cannot rave enough about how amazing it smelled! I did love using this on days I didn’t wear makeup – like at the gym but didn’t want my lips to be so naked/dry.
