BRAND SPOTLIGHT ON : Jelly Pong Pong*


Sometimes, I get a bit emosh when I think about the opportunities, brands, products and baes that blogging has brought into my life. There's not a day goes by where I don't cackle like a mad smackhead at the messages that go back in forth in our blogger group chat - or send stupid voice notes / die when KT sings a very special version of Despacita

I've worked with some amazing companies and been introduced to some fab, game changing products - I just feel so grateful that my new found #bloggerlife has been able to introduce me to what I now class as staple brands in my life.

Undoubtedly, one of these brands that meets this criteria is Jelly Pong Pong. I only discovered them a little earlier on this year, when my baes Friday Faye and Fran sent me one of their newly released  lip toppers; which I instantly fell in love with... and now we're here. Couldn't imagine life without their beautiful [and I mean beautiful - their packaging is next level stunning] products now... and I don't even want to, for one second.

Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics are beautifully unique. I've never seen a prettier, more creative array of designs, products and packaging all in one place, tbh. Everything is affordable, high quality and cruelty free / hypoallergenic / paraben free / vegan friendly - which is a MASSIVE plus point. Well, several massive plus points, rly.

They are based in the US [as, it seems, are all the coolest cats in the beauty world] but shipping costs are pretty reasonable and to say their warehouse is so far away, the unreal selection of products they kindly sent me to try arrived so effing quickly. Beware, this post is probs going to be the most photo heavy thing in the world - but also, put your feet up and have a scroll, cos it's well worth it for all the makeup porn you're about to see.

[in size Normal, there's also a Petite version available for $24.00]

We live in a world where a commonly held belief is that unless you can be seen from space, you're not wearing enough highlighter. Whether you agree with this bold statement or not, this trio of beautifully soft, luminescent highlighters is up there with some of my personal faves. It's just so pretty and glowy - not too much, but not too subtle or grainy. I'm keeping a low profile from aliens as I'm legit terrified of them, so you won't be seeing me from space any time soon!

Each of the salmony, rose shades in this triumphant highlighter trio is infused with Coffee Bean and Elderberry extracts, which work to transform your complexion; giving it a healthy glow from within and dashings of luminosity. From L-R we have shades High Beam, Rose Beam and Sweet Beam.

Shade Nightingale

Just look at it. LOOK AT IT [you'd better be looking at it.] Have you ever seen something so pretty and magical bundled into one pink & gold palette?! FYI - if you say yes, I'll tell you you're lying and possibly set my hamster on you. Isn't this palette just the cutest?!

The shade included are beautiful, super wearable and blend well. I tend to reach for this eyeshadow quad when I want to create a smouldering yet naturally warm looking eye. I'd say the colours in it are pretty good for daytime wear, as well as night.

I wondered what it was about the powders which make them so soft and blendable - and it turns out that this is down to their lux airy texture; which is claimed to moisturise and melt into the skin to make your look last longer, with no fall-out. They're also infused with radiance-boosting minerals, Vitamin K to reduce dark circles and Copper Peptide; which promotes collagen and elastin growth around the delicate eye area. So they make up an all round babe / Goddess / champion of a palette.

I frigging love the smell of this stuff - I'm a massive coffee obsesso and I'd been desperate to try a lip scrub for aaaaages, so this was the perfect addition to my life. It works well, leaving my lips considerably smoother and feeling more hydrated; acting as a primer before I apply my lipstick / lipliner.

Once again, the packaging is just the most adorable thing ever and definitely made me swear out loud in triumph when I unboxed it. It smells [and I won't lie, I nibbled it a bit] and tastes good enough to eat - sugary, coffee-y [covfefe] and summery with the coconut extracts. Formulated with pure golden sugar, jojoba and rosehip oil to gently remove dry, chapped skin.

Shade Curiosity
This is such a me shade - I always reach for bright pink lip products with a cool undertone, as I think they suit me best out of most shades. And resembling a human and not a bog rat is my end goal. This lipgloss smells so good that it is, in reality, hard to cope.

It's glossy but not with that dreaded stickiness and tackiness you can get sometimes; instead working to hydrate your lips and not pure smudging around your face instead. It has a pretty thick, pigmented formula which gives a great colour pay off for a lipgloss product. Fab, and a much loved lip product of mine.

Shade Power Trip

I LOVE this lipstick, OMD. The packaging is the cutest ever for starters - totes Pop Art inspired, and the product itself is the most pigmented, matte yet soft crayony texture ever. I'm obsessed with the vibrancy and application of this lippy - I much prefer reaching for corally shades of red rather than postbox reds for a fun pop of colour and this just ticks all the boxes ever available for me.

It's matte without being too matte, you get me? Like, not the boring liquid lipstick of 2015 we're all sick of [everyone must have at least one like this, surely? That one bugger that dries your lips out and leaves them looking like they've just done a shift at the Krusty Krab] this one smells unreal and leaves your lips pure soft, with a subtle matte finish and a superhero level of vibrancy and kapow factor.

In Electric

I love the packaging of this dinky little pot of goodness - and just look how pigmented and intense the bronze colours are. Legit perfect for this time of year; for adding warmth to your coppery Autumn makeup looks and a splash of shimmer for your festive party looks. It's just gorgeous, and they're both really wearable, blendable shades.

Consistency-wise, it's like a dead concentrated cream-powder type formula; which ensures that it lasts for pure time and gives maximum pigment focus. It's dead smooth and easy to apply, simply gliding onto the skin, with zero fall-out - whether applied with ya fingers or a more professional brush set up.

Jelly Puff Silicone Applicator*

Has there ever been a truer, or cuter word spoken by any sili blender ever?! How cute is this? Its pink, gold and quote exterior ensure that it fits pretty much every blogger's aesthetic and how good of an excuse is that for our collective spending habits, pls? I can't find these applicators on the Jelly Pong Pong store so I can't link you to them... but instead, you can just sit and enjoy the cuteness of this one with me. Helping the economy together, and that.

And those products right there, my friends, are why I love this brand so much. It's fun, it's pretty, it's unique, it's creative and it's cruelty free - I don't know what else I could ever ask for in a brand, tbh! Thank you very much to Gemma at Jelly Pong Pong HQ for sending me these goodies to try too - soz it's taken about 2 light years for me to get my post up, but I was taken captive in hospital for just under a month so life has thrown me some mad U-turn and I'm just stuck in the bend.
