Jelly Pong Pong..
I was recently sent a few items and wanted to share my thoughts with you. Overall, I think the packaging is cute but not too keen on how the products perform apart from one which I will save until last.
First up, the Popsicle soap with the scent of a watermelon. These don't come cheap at £7 a pop, the scent is absolutely delicious and would make a great little present for a girl in her early teens. Nothing bad to say apart from that it contains sulphates... Hmmm.
The Shoe palette - Vertigo Stiletto contains a bronze cream eyeshadow and champagne lipgloss, it's very compact and light with a great mirror. However it has cardboard packaging which equals a tatty product after time. The pigmentation and texture is lovely and a great product for the handbag but nothing special.
The Cystallizer has a beautiful metallic domed packaging with 4 different shades which you swirl together to highlight, I disliked this as it contained chunky flecks of glitter, however, maybe on holiday applied to your legs it can work?!
The Venus magical pearls in Aurora is probably the most exciting product as when you swipe your fingers over the beads it can be used as a highlighter, and when crushed as an eyeshadow as it reveals a different more intense colour. One major problem though, I don't want to swipe my fingers all over the beads for hygiene reasons and I want a more precise application so I need to use a brush. I can't use a brush as all the beads get stuck in the bristles. Also, to use as an eyeshadow is a long process, who wants to sit there and crush a tiny bead and then spread it on their eye, I thought applying pigments were time consuming this is a whole new level.
Finally the best of the bunch, the Muffin & Meringue gloss set, these 2 tubes are huge and beautifully packaged, it comes in a cute box and will make the most ideal gift for a girly girl. They smell absolutely amazing, one of sweet cakes and the other of cherries. They feel smooth and silky on the lips with no drying. They add a sheer wash of colour to the lips making them look juicy and plump.
Overall I am still intrigued but I basically think you are paying more for the cute packaging rather than an actual good quality and thoroughly thought out product and I also think it's priced too high for what it is.
Have you tried anything from Jelly Pong Pong?
