Jelly Pong Pong 2-in-1 Eyeliner and Eye Shadow Review

1

I have loved Jelly Pong Pong products in the past but unfortunately this one was pretty disappointing. I didn’t receive it in a colour I even like, I’m not even sure what shade it’s supposed to be but it’s a very dark green that I can only describe as swamp green.

I love multi-tasking products – when they do what they say they are going to do, unfortunately this one doesn’t do either of it’s advertised functions well.

The colour makes it really hard to find a purpose for it, this photo makes it look much darker than it really comes out. I braved it and tried it as both a liner and shadow and I didn’t like either. The line isn’t precise enough even when sharpened fully for a liner but it also doesn’t smudge well enough to be a decent shadow. I was so disappointed that this is basically useless to me.  I won’t even put a photo up of me wearing it because it is looked awful on me. Even when I used it as a liner it didn’t stay put for long and smudged into my poor sensitive eyes.

I would try some of the other colours, the bronze and amethyst ones both look pretty and may have been better but at £10.50 I’m not sure it’s worth the risk if I’m honest. Sorry Jelly Pong Pong it just wasn’t for me this time!

Try it: £10.50. http://jellypongpong.com/collections.asp?CategoryId=3069

Has anyone else tried this? Any better luck?

Top 5 Thursday: Mascara

1

Mascara is probably my favourite, can’t-be-seen-without product. It is my secret addiction and so it makes sense that not only have I tried hundreds but I also have plenty barely used, sitting in my drawer. These 5 lovelies however, have been used, used and used again.

It can be so difficult standing in Superdrug trying to decide which new mascara to choose, they all boast fantastic abilities and very few live up to expectation. Rarely can you try them out before your shell out and so you only have advertising to go by, leading to let down and a second trip to town. This is why I’ve put together a list of my top 5, these ones will not let you down. Arm yourself with my easy list before making your trip and you’ll waste less time on wonga on mascaras that just don’t cut the mustard.

1 – Benefit – They’re Real

This is my top mascara at the moment, it is hard-working and looks amazing. It also stays on far ages, actually it’s quite a job to get off at the end of the day, perfect for the working girl! It also doesn’t melt and run in the heat! See my full review of this here.

2 – MAC – Zoom Lash Mascara

This one doesn’t give so much volume as number 1 but it boy does it provide length, this is for you if you want lashes that go on and on and on. It is much easier to remove than They’re real but still stays on for a fair amount of time. Full review here.

3 – Jelly Pong Pong – Fairy Lashes Mascara

I love this mascara, it comes in a cute purple tube and a gorgeous box too. It feels really light to wear but looks beautiful on. Full review here.

4 – NO7 – Extravagant Lashes Mascara

This one is great for boosting the volume of your lashes without clumping. I haven’t reviewed many No7 products lately but this is one of my favourites.

5 – Rimmel – The Falsies Volume Effect Express Mascara – Flared

This mascara comes in different styles from rocket to flared. This is the flared one and it is fantastic for giving definition to your lashes. You use one side to lengthen and curl the lashes and the other to flare out the corners. It works really well and is a good price but perhaps doesn’t last as loon during the day as others.

I hope this has been useful and I’d love suggestions for next weeks top 5!

Jelly Pong Pong – Fairy Lashes Mascara Review

Reviewed by Tams

Fairy Lashes Mascara – don’t be fooled by the name, this mascara isn’t a bit fluffy, glittery or girly. Not only did my lashes look amazing when I used this it lasted all day too!

I love the name and the packaging which does appeal to the girly girl inside me but I also love that it doesn’t smudge, wear off or slide down my face when it rains! My lashes looked and stayed long, full of volume and curled! It was also quick and easy to use – no need for several hundred coats – bonus!

It can be a bit tricky to get off as it is a bit on the stubborn side but a bit of eye make-up remover does the trick.

What I liked most: Staying power!

What I like least: Nothing!

Try it: RRP £15, www.jellypongpong.com
