These were bought in my All Cosmetic Wholesale Haul, so for all the information on buying this set, check this post out! I got mine in a set of three, "Savory 420" an orange-y flesh tone color, "Luscious 720" a deep wine almost brown looking color, and "Plush 120" a bubble gum pink color. My L'oreal HIP Jelly Balms have sat in the back of my makeup drawer for a while, but I recently broke them out and have absolutely fell in love. A lot of people compare these to the MAC Tender Tones, which I've never had, but I think this L'oreal product holds up well by itself.

Pros: I'm a packaging fanatic, and I love how these are designed, they look so sleek to me. These lip glosses smell delicious, exactly like vanilla. When you put them on, you get a sheer wash of color, and insane shine. They feel super smooth all day long, and are pretty long lasting. This lip gloss has nada, none, zip shimmer, absolute flat color, and it makes me love it that much more. My lips always feel super moisturized when I wear this and when it wears off.
Cons: I don't think it's very sanitary to be sticking your finger in a product to get it out, plus it means I need to wipe my hand off afterward. These are pretty pricey for the small amount of product you get, so I would never buy these at the drug store for $8.99 a piece, try to find them online for good deals. Though the packaging is cute, it's a little too heavy to just pop in your pocket or bag. They all give off a nice color except for the color "Savory 420" which might do something on a darker skinned person, but it's just like a clear gloss on fair skin.
I have heard these are being discontinued (not sure if that's true since they are still featured on the L'oreal website) but regardless if they are/aren't, I would recommend getting some of these, they won't end up on your products I regret buying list!
