L'oreal HIP Jelly Balms

I finally got my hands on some L'oreal HIP Jelly balms! I've been waiting for Walgreens to have a BOGO free sale on them for what feels like forever! But hey, patience is a virtue. Anywho, I got two of them and I think I want to go back for Plush. I got the two darkest colors because I was afraid of how sheer they'd be and I did want SOME color. The color pay-off for these balms is pretty good considering that they are sheer balms. The color is very buildable so you can always apply more. I tried taking some swatches of the balms on my lips, but my lips kept coming out clear in the photos. I think it might've been the flash. BUT, if you're looking at me in real life, you can definitely tell that my lips aren't clear.

Alyssa:haha yeah. the date is wrong on my camera. for some reason, everytime i turn it on, it asks me to input the date again so i usually just skip it.

the scent of the jelly balms smell kinda like cotton candy... but the smell is pretty faint. i don't usually notice it.

lovely !!! which one you like more, Luscious or Succulent?

abt RFSS yeah the shipping turned me off that's why I was so happy when they offered Free Shipping. The TAT is not as bad and I have to say it's worth it : )

I want to try them L'oreal HIP jelly balms. They say it's so much better than them Tender tones as in long-lasting wise. I got quite a few of Tendertones and they're not as special as they say it is. So bummed :(
