Jelly Pong Pong Review

I got a very nice package this week filled with gorgeous bits and pieces from Jelly Pong Pong!

Since I have all this lovely new makeup to play with I thought I'd share a review of it with my gorgeous readers!

Remember how much I hate bronzer? Well I'm happy to report that the Jelly Pong Pong Omnibronzer is quite an interesting little product!

Jelly Pong Pong Omnibronzer

It comes in a faux leather case (this will keep my spare change from getting lost on the bottom of my purse) that you can unzip to get to the actual compact, very chic and cute in the Muse's opinion! The compact is tiny and quite sweet with the powder on top and a flip lid to reveal the super soft brush beneath. So I'm very weary of bronzers of any kind they just don't agree with me or my skin however this particular bronzer shows up a lovely healthy peach color on my skin!! I was shocked as the actual color of the powder is a typical brownish muddy color that I detest with a passion but upon stroking it on my cheeks it makes me look quite fresh and healthy! To say I'm impressed is an understatement! I need a back up of this amazing stuff!

The bronzer is a universal color and should work on all skin types! It's available for $29usd from Jelly Pong Pong and well worth the price tag as it could be the most perfect shade of peach I've come across!

Next up the Supermodel Stain which like the Omnibronzer comes in a cute little compact! This compact is super small but has quite a nice bit of product inside! It's pink in color and features three "models" on the cover (guess that's where the name comes into play right?). The color I got is Slenderella and I was a bit weary as it's really a pale shade of pink which would be much better suited to a very fair skinned person! However, I'm happy to report that it works perfectly on my skin tone and it gives me a sweet flush of color! Anytime I use cream stains or blushes I always get the look of "just out of the cold weather" and this is no different it gives my cheeks a bite of color that's very natural and young! 5 colors are available from the website and each compact is $19usd! The Muse is now lemming Nymphette and Cupcake Pout which both look quite appealing!

The item I've been lemming for a while and wanting to try is the Gourmet Lip Therapy and I'm lucky enough to have gotten my chance to try it in the flavor Real Honey! First of all the packaging on this is ultra cute with a pop up design when opened (you'll see my pictures in this post for yourself). The actual gloss tastes like I'm slathering honey on my lips minus the stickiness of real honey! It's quite a slippery emollient lipgloss which is exactly the way I prefer my gloss as it glides on easy and doesn't leave my lips feeling tacky, sticky and just gross! Gourmet Lip Therapy comes in three flavors and are $16usd!

Love multitasking makeup? I do. On the days I'm too bloody lazy to bother with a full face I turn to the easiest and simplest ways to make myself presentable and pretty! Jelly Pong Pong offers Love Rouge to multitask my way through cheeks and lips in one easy step! Love Rouge is a duo of colors that can be used as a touch of color on your cheeks or a slip of color across your lips! Easy, Simple, Out the door quickly! I love multitasking makeup ;) $16usd nabs you a cute duo of color to make makeup simple when life is being complicated!

Teint Sublime is something that actually DOES what Benefit That Gal promises! When I originally seen the color of this I was thinking it was a big no for me. It's a baby pink that could not look great on me! However, upon trying it I'm shocked to say that it brightened my rather dull skin up and created a nice soft matte finish to my skin for makeup application! Now this is actually to combat skin problems such as dull skin, red spots, etc....however I found it works great as under makeup primer! I even felt like I didn't need to wear foundation after using it! Interesting little product! It's available in a variety of formulas to combat common skin problems and in my opinion well worth the price! I do believe I need more of this! $20usd gets you a nice size amount to clear up skin woes and make you gorgeous! I forgot to add the packaging is kinda awesome on this (hey I'm a geek! Packaging sales cosmetics for me)! It's a cardboard box with a zipper that actually works! How freaking nifty is that? Sorry but these little touches really tickle me!

One product that fails to wow the Muse was Gloss BonBon! This is a multitasking gloss and cheek stain like Love Rouge. I haven't actually used it on my face as of yet but I did use it on my lips and didn't like the texture. It was a really weird chalky gloss that was doing nothing for my lips! I'm curious how it'll look on my cheeks but I'm not sure after trying it on my lips if it'll be any better on my face! This is available in a variety of colors for $12usd and maybe one of the other colors would work better on me I'm not sure but this one wasn't great for the Muse!

Jelly Pong Pong Gloss Bonbon

Overall I'd say Jelly Pong Pong has some very interesting little products that I really enjoyed trying out and reviewing for you! My wish list is quite huge after wandering on the site and I feel the urge to do an order very shortly! Stay tuned ;) I'll update you with what I get and what I think!

Already a Jelly Pong Pong user and lover? Tell the Muse what you've tried and why you love or hate it!

Hi Muse-y,

It's been too long since I commented! I love Jelly Pong Pong so I just had to respond to this post. I have JPP's Love Rouge in Hepburn & Tracy (love!), Shoe Palette in Vertigo Stiletto (meh- I got this one in a swap- not my colors so much), Single and Lovin' It e/s in 75% Cocoa (love!), Lo-Lip-Pop in Strawberry Slush (sooo good and yummy- best texture for me ever!), Lip Sorbet in Lychee Fuzz (so pretty on- MLBB) -I also just won one of these in a blog contest- not sure which color is coming, and I am dying for all the items you got and then some. It's such a cute brand. :) I love it. I really want to try a Gourmet Lip Therapy, a Jelly Flush and Supermodel Stain.

Thansk for such a great post!

Hi, I recently came across your blog while looking for makeup reviews on Jelly Pong Pong products and now I read it religiously!

I was wondering if you could tell me if this product really works and just how good it is? I'm a student so splashing out on a product is a treat but I don't want to spend loads and not have it do what I want it to! I'm thinking of getting Green to even out my skin just so I can use it everyday as a base, instead of tinted moisturiser or foundation, with blush and eyeliner so I'm ready to go.

Hi Caz!

Thanks for visiting with me so often :) I appreciate it!

I actually really love the Teint Sublime. It makes a great base for makeup! I only have the pink. I don't have problems with reddening on my face so I can't say for sure if the green is good. To be honest, if you're a student, you can find something far cheaper. This is $30 usd and that's a bit much for such a tiny tube!

Are you purchasing the green to even out your skintone dude to red? If so have you tried physicians formula

they make several cheaper options that actually work. It's one of the few drugstore brands I've tried and found very true. They have a green primer/concealer that would be perfect to even out your skin if you're having problems with redness!

You can search out reviews for Teint Sublime on MUA as well if you want to see how good the green is.

I do definately love the pink but I don't love the price tag and after I'm done with the one I have I won't purchase again due to the cost!

Hope this helps!

Thanks, you did help! I didn't realise it was so ridiculously small...found out it's smaller than my Juicy Tube!

I live in the UK so Prescriptives is not an option for me. I do have some powder that my mum bought for me from Hawaii and was pleased too see it in your New Year makeup post :D!

I think I'll stick to tinted moisturiser, I like to splash out on a good base but you're right, it's not worth that much for so little!

Thanks again!

Hiya caz!

Sorry for my delayed reply! Been away for a few days!

It's very tiny! It is indeed smaller then a Juicy Tube :(

However a little goes a long way which kinda sorta makes up for the size!

It's Physicians Formula. It's a drugstore brand ;) You might be able to locate some on ebay and have people airmail it. It's quite inexpensive and very effective!

Oh cool! Which powder was it? Do tell :)

I was a student once too and spending alot on cosmetics wasn't easy :( I highly suggest searching how cheaper brands that accomplish the same things =) This was just a bit too overpriced!

You're most welcome!

Thanks for dropping by and commenting!
