Recessionista’s Fabuless Pick of the Week: L’Oreal Paris HIP Jelly Balm

I am absolutely obsessed with L’Oreal Paris HIP Jelly Balm right now. They’re the poor (wo)man’s MAC Tendertones…except they’re better, IMO.

The creamy balm lends a juicy pop of color to lips without the stickiness of your average gloss. The six shades have a magic quality that flatter all skin tones (I am partial to Plush). They’re so moutwatering and moisturizing that they render your chapstick obsolete. And when you’re having a bad day, HIP Jelly Balm is the perfect pick-me-up beauty buy.

They smell like cotton candy, taste like caramel, and cost less than $10. Does it get any better?

Buy the entire set without breaking the bank.

Available at mass market retail stores and at drugstore.com.

Junior Drake Giveaway Winner!


Happy Monday! I know that many of you have been holding your breath, crossing your fingers, and wishing on stars. Well, one of you did a better job that the others…I mean you, Virenda Mendoza!

Virenda is the lucky winner of the Junior Drake giveaway. She will receive Junior Drake’s Nicola Tote, a pretty and practical bag with a roomy interior, a plethora of pockets, double handles and longer detachable strap.

Thanks to all who entered (and shamelessly resorted to begging), and to Junior Drake for generously spoiling my readers.
