Jelly Pong Pong Venus Magical Pearls Review

I get ALOT of email daily at Musings and I honestly do have a really, really hard time keeping up with it all but I’m truly listening when you write me. One such case of e-mail overload would be about a zillion messages I got from various people asking for a review on Jelly Pong Pong Venus Magical Pearls.

I believe I caused a bit of an epidemic with my reviews on various awesome Jelly Pong Pong items because I get daily e-mails asking about the entire line and I honestly can’t answer all the questions about certain items as I haven’t tried the complete line of products! Sorry guys, the Muse is only one girl and contrary to popular belief I do not own every item in every collection ever released hehe!

Picture+048

But the good news is I can at lest ease your curiosity about Jelly Pong Pong’s Venus Magical Pearls finally. So, yes, I am listening and here, as requested, is my review!

These are awesome and come with my seal of approval before I even review! They have a bit of a novelty feel to them while keeping the cuteness that is Jelly Pong Pong and adding an inventive way to use eyeshadow!

What are they?

Exactly what it says on the package…Magical Pearls! Ooooo! Ok..not really….but close to magical as you’ll get. Basically you’ll be purchasing a cute container of shimmering pearls and in keeping with Jelly Pong Pong’s theme of “swiping and going” makeup these make shadow application a pure breeze and goof proof for the not so expert makeup inclined. Each jar contains a single shade of pearls which you’ll swipe your finger across, picking up shimmering color that you can use on your eyes or face. The fun doesn’t end there though…pick up one pearl and squash it between your finger tips to release a second contrasting shimmering shade! Awesome right?

I personally haven’t tried these on my face but I love creating a simple yet stunning eye look using the two shades. I normally start my look by swiping my fingers across the pearls and applying all over my lid and into my crease. I follow up by taking my frustrations out on the pearl and squashing it between my fingertips to release the secondary shade which I use all over my lid.

And it’s really that simple.

You can use a blending brush to blend out any harsh lines but honestly it’s a simple swipe of your finger tips to get an interesting blend of shimmering colors on your eyes! Obviously part of the appeal is how quickly you can create a look using the product. It makes makeup application simple and quite fun!

The color combinations are rather wonderful and go together beautifully plus the shades are very nicely pigmented making the product last very long since you only need one tiny pearl to complete your look! The pearls are very tiny and to create my looks below I used a single pearl.

Jelly Pong Pong has these available in four shade selections which evens out to roughly eight colors combinations. I’ve tried out two of the four and I’ll be purchasing the other two shades shortly (expect a follow up review for those…).

The shades I’ve tried out are Goddess Skin and Worship. Of the two Worship is my very favorite as the color combo is beautiful plus it’s a rather great time of the year to be wearing the two shades included with Worship. Worship starts as beautiful, shimmering gold, once crushed it goes from gold to a deeply pigmented fiery orange that contrasts perfectly with the gold. Goddess Skin starts out as a bronze which looks rather brownish, it has a nice shimmery finish. Once crushed Goddess Skin turns into an olive green, pairing an olive green and a bronze brownish shade never crossed my mind but turns out the two shades bounce off each other rather nicely.

All in all I think the simplicity of use, stunning colors, and unique application process makes this a really fun product to pick up for yourself! It doesn’t have to be difficult to create a rather flawless, fun look and Jelly Pong Pong Venus Magical Pearls helps that process right along!

I loved these and definately recommend at least trying one shade..soon after I guarantee you’ll want the rest!

These are available from Jelly Pong Pong for $20 USD or 15 on their website. The site ships domestic and international!

Jelly Pong Pong Crystallize Review

The Muse likes a little sparkle, and a little glitter…oh and I love some shimmer so of course I’m all about Jelly Pong Pong Crystallize!

crystalizer large
Jelly Pong Pong Crystallize is a new product from Jelly Pong Pong that contains four shades of dazzling jewel like shimmers that you can use on your face, body, or hair!

The product comes in sphere compact so it’s not only beautiful on the inside but also gorgeous on the outside. Once you’ve unscrewed the cap you’ll come across a powder puff applicator and under that is a sifter that’s divided into four parts a la Givenchy’s Prsme Libre Loose Powder Quartet. The sifter does not contain a divider between each shade so it’s difficult to actually apply each shade individually however this does not take away from the effects of the powder simply because combining all four shades creates an intense shimmery finish that’s simply gorgeous.

The four shades housed in the sphere are a Light Amethyst, Tanzanite, Firestone Ruby, and White Crystal or in Muse English they are green, pink, purple, and peach! Combining the shades simply gives you a highly intense shimmery effect that’s not so much a rainbow of color but more of a simple crystal-like finish. Of course, if you prefer you can, with a little work, apply each shade separately.

I’ve been happily using this on my cheeks, face, arms, etc…and as per Jelly Pong Pong’s recommendation I mixed some with my moisturizer and applied on my skin which produced a rather fun effect on my skin! Likey!

All in all this is a rather cute little shimmer to add to your collection if you’re high on doses of sparkle like the Muse is! I’m sealing it with a Muse Approval for purchase!

Jelly Pong Pong Nicola Roberts Dainty Doll Foundation Review

I sadly didn’t love Jelly Pong Pong’s Nicola Roberts Dainty Doll Concealer. I really wanted to love this but it didn’t work out quite the way I wanted too!

However, I do have a rave for Jelly Pong Pong Dainty Doll Foundation. I was in high debate with myself whether I should indulge in this particular foundation since it’s made for girls with very, very fair complexions in mind however since I’m not shy when it comes to trying out really pale shades I firgured why not!

I know many of you wouldn’t touch these particular shades with a ten foot pole since they are considerably light however as I said I’m not entirely against trying a foundation that’s a shade or two lighter than my actually tone because I do believe I make it work well. Since my skin has a healthy dose of medium to it the color selection wasn’t exactly friendly for my tone but I went ahead and purchased two of the three shades available those of which were Ivory and Porcelain. Before I go into details about the shades one rant I did have was the lack of color selection. The foundation comes in three shade selections and thats it however I did understand that the mentality behind the brand was to be appealing to very fair skinned girls so I’m sure extending the line with further colors would go against what the collection was trying to achieve.

When I purchased two shades I was of the mind of mixing both to create a rather great shade that would suitably offer both coverage and possibly even out dull spots and brighten my complextion which it successfully did in spades.

As I mentioned I selected two shades, Ivory which is a creamy shade of Ivory and Porcelain which is light ivory with plenty of beige. I probably didn’t need to select Ivory since Porcelain turned out to actually be fairly suitable to my tone although a bit too light however I did think mixing both created a rather great shade. I particularly liked the effects of placing Ivory below my under eye area where I have a bit of a sunken look to my eyes, this lifted the area and created a fresher, more awake look!

The foundation comes in a pot and the formula is a mousse consistency that’s creamy, moisturizing, and offers light coverage. The coverage is buildable but it’s not full coverage so don’t expect to cover major problem skin with this foundation. The foundation offers a great flawless finish and I actually loved the effect on my skin. It woke my tired skin up, offered nice coverage, and gave me a nice glow.

I actually had hoped this would be a great dupe for Kevyn Aucoin’s The Sensual Skin Enhancer however the products are vastly different in both coverage and texture. Kevyn’s version is thicker, heavier, and offers far more coverage where as this is thinner in consistency, very light weight, and coverage is sheer.

The foundation actually has the potential to be holy grail material however it has one major flaw that’s pretty unforgivable when it comes to foundation. The staying powder is terrible. Simply terrible.

After application the foundation lasts around two hours, three if you’re lucky. For me, that’s just terrible considering how much I hate having to touch up my foundation as the day progresses. The formula simply melts away and you’re left with very little in it’s place which means it’s like starting your entire makeup application regime over again.

Since the staying powder virtually stinks I decided that it’s the perfect foundation for weekends when I’m looking for lighter coverage or for a quick run to the store, etc…It’s also particularly nice for freshing up foundation that you may already have on. A few dots down the sides of your nose and blended outwards definately freshens up foundation that’s already in place.

Wearing the two shades blended together!

Picture+005 400x300

For an all day foundation it definately doesn’t work out for me but as a quick face item or a touch up item I do give it props! I sincerely love the product because of it’s ability to create a beautiful, moist, glowing, awake look however since it doesn’t last all day I’m left with a pot of foundation that I’m only using for quick runs to the store or weekend wear when I’m running around with friends and not really caring to do a full makeup look.

I definately recommend picking one up if you’ve had a seriously hard time locating a foundation that’s light enough for your milky white complextion. I also recommend it for brightening up a medium-fair tone if you like toeing the line when it comes to lighter shades of foundation.

It’s excellent stuff but the formula needs some work before I can truly love it!

Like it for sure, love it, no.
