  • While the pigment is not literally is intense as it appears in the pot, I found it to be more impressive than your average lip gloss
  • I found that they labeling wore off very quickly, so if you are particularly fond of a color I suggest writing the name down in case you want to buy it again

      L’Oreal’s new line of High Intensity Pigments (HIP) lives up to its name. The Jelly Balm feels just like it sounds - it has a smooth texture, just sticky enough to have staying power but still feel silky on your lips. I picked up a pot in “Delectable” (320), a rich red gloss that delivers a healthy hint of color and tons of shine. While the pigment is not literally is intense as it appears in the pot, I found it to be more impressive than your average lip gloss. It has a pleasant smell, and like cherry Chapstick, it’s tempting to lick. Jelly Balm is also surprisingly

      moisturizing, a quality I can attest to having wore it through the most brutal months of winter in New York.

      There are a couple of cons, however. The packaging is a bit on the bulky side a thick glass base adds a lot of extra weight, and while it may look pretty, it does not fit easily into a typical make up bag. I found that they labeling wore off very quickly, so if you are particularly fond of a color I suggest writing the name down in case you want to buy it again.

      • fly: due to the high pigment content of this gloss, it can stain your fingers. If you don’t have a napkin or a sink nearby, you could end up with a sticky pink (or purple, or red) fingertip!

        Jelly Balm is available at most drugstores or major retailers that sell L’Oreal products. It typically sells for around $5.00, which is a relatively good bargain. The gloss stays on your lips for a couple of hours (assuming you don’t eat or drink too much) and you don’t have to apply a lot to achieve color. It is available in six different shades, which are relatively predictable: Plush is a sweet pink;

        Ripe is a berry shade; Delectable, as I mentioned, is a rich red, Savory leans towards coral; Succulent is plum; and Luscious is a deep purple. Keep in mind though, they appear much darker in the pot than they do on your lips. Think of Clinique’s cult-favorite Black Honey gloss, which has a similar effect.

        Assuming you aren’t prone to break outs, Jelly Balm could double as a blush dab a little along your cheekbone for a subtle sheen. All in all, Jelly Balm is a worthy purchase, whether on impulse or planned. It has become a regular part of my beauty routine (I’m a sucker for lip glosses).
