Cargo Glossy Greeting Card

Ahhhhh! The Muse purchases a lot of these each and every year and her friends go ga-ga over them!

That little pink dot happens to be a smidgen of Cargo gloss that’s good enough for about three to four uses!

Cool right? Gloss and a Christmas Card! What better way to share your passion for makeup than giving out these cards!

This year’s cards say “Wishing You Health, Happiness, and Glossperity” however the Muse liked last year’s cards better which featured a picture of Santa and beneath read “Here Comes Santa Gloss!”

$10 bucks gets you 5 cards and the Muse deems them perfect for giving to a special sister, best friends, and any true cosmetic lover in your life!

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!

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 icon wink $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!

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 icon wink 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!
