Not too long ago I received a lovely little package of cosmetics from UK-based company, Jelly Pong Pong. Made in Italy, Jelly Pong Pong products are made with environmentally-conscious formulations and cruelty-free testing practices.
Shadow Taffy: The packaging on this is adorable but what about the actual product? The cute little birdie sits atop a lid over creamy eyeshadow in two shades, candyfloss red and iridescent gold. As a very pale and rosy-complected lass, I was a bit hesitant to put even more red onto my skin. To my utter surprise, candyfloss red didn’t go on red at all; instead it brightened and enhanced my green eyes without any redness. The gold was equally subtle but would definitely work better with a tan or different skin tone than I rock. (UK Price: 15.00)
Lip Orchid Duo: These two glosses are paired together in a clear plastic box. The two shades, Bouquet (a chic coral) and Petal Pink (a posy pink) add just the lightest tint of color and shine without feeling goopy or heavy. I’d like them to last a bit longer on the lips but they are really pretty and would make a nice gift to your maids. (UK Price: 12.00)
Venus Magical Pearls: Magical Pearls add a dash of color of sparkle to your eyelids, cheeks, or wherever you’d like to add some magic. Just swirl your finger over the pearls and swipe across your skin. Available in five shades: Ambrosia, Aurora, Goddess Skin, Immortal & Worship. Goddess Skin was a bit too dark for me (again, I’m nearly sparkly vampire pale) as a bronzer or blush enhancer but it looked fab as eyeshadow. (UK Price: 20.00)
Wakeup Makeup: This was my favorite of the bunch, a portable kit contains: Eye Brightener (just tap onto any dark circles you see, on brow bone & outer corner of eyes), Face Brightener (“apply a small amount on your face & neck to invigorate dull complexions”) and the Eyebrow Grooming set with 3 superior eyebrow powder shades, tweezers & brow brush. The Eye Brightener rocks my world! My sleep-deprived eyes immediately looked refreshed when I used it. *LOVE IT* (UK Price: 18.00)
The bridal products are available at a 50% discount on purchases of GBP 300 or more (those bridesmaid gifts add up quickly!). Jelly Pong Pong products are available in the US and via JellyPongPong.com.
