Not sure if anyone has been visiting Jelly Pong Pong lately but they have Deluxe Gift Bags again! Ok, so this is probably nothing to get too excited about considering the last bags weren’t available for shipment outside the UK. Boo! But have no fear they ship worldwide now. Yay!
Jump ahead to read the deets!
Ok, so, deluxe bags. What are they, why do you need ‘em. Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bags are basically filled with Jelly Pong Pong goodies and offered to us makeup junkies at a seriously discounted price. The first time these were offered Jelly Pong Pong was only shipping within the UK and only had one bag selection available. Since that time, things have changed. These are now available in three selections and are shipped worldwide, wahoo!
Bags are £10 each which converts to $16 USD plus shipping. I purchased all three bags for around $88 USD each which makes each bag around $29 USD each. I broke down each bag and added up what was inside and processed it as $111 USD of items. So buying all three I did save a little bit of money.
Few tips, if you do order they’ll charge you shipping but later send an invoice for the remaining shipping as it’s a standard flat rate of $6.95 but you’ll be charged more. Secondly, the price of $88 USD for all three bags shipped is for residents of the US. Anywhere else I do not know what they will charge for shipping so you can contact them prior to ordering for a shipping details.
Each bag contains two items each and you’ll have three choices for bags however you cannot choose the contents of bags. The bags are as follows:
Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bag One Includes:
Jelly Pong Pong Hawaiian Sun ($20 USD Regular Price)
Jelly Pong Pong Cheek Puff ($14 USD Regular Price)
Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bag Two
Jelly Pong Pong Muffin and Meringue Gloss Set ($22 USD Regular Price)
Jelly Pong Pong Brush Set ($12 USD Regular Price)
Jelly Pong Pong Deluxe Bag Three
Jelly Pong Pong Wakeup Makeup ($27.50 USD Regular Price)Jelly Pong Pong Cherry Pie ($15 USD Regular Price)
All the items in the bag are full size products and very, very cute. I’ll be reviewing the items I got in my bags shortly in various posts. All in all I think these are really good deals and a great way to try out Jelly Pong Pong. All the items are brand new to the Jelly Pong Pong line and some are particularly fun for Summer.

If you’re just wanting one of the items you see in a bag you can always order it separately as well!
I blogged about Soap & Glory Skincare in January
being widely available in Boots, across the pond, in the far UK. I recall ranting a tad bit about how it would take two years and a mule to get it over to our side of the pond. I’m happy to report that it’s now available at Target. I was at Target last Sunday and happened across it. Joy! I picked up a few bits to review for you but if you can’t wait you can snag it for yourself at your local Target as it’s widely available as of now in the US, bless be to the Soap & Glory gods!
Anyone see it at their Target yet?

One of my favorite bloggers, BritishBeautyBlogger
, has reported that Stila is officially pulling out of the UK. Seems Stila has been pulling the plug on most of the European markets and Asian ones for now. I imagine as they rebuild you may see them pop up again on your shores but for now it seems it’s become more and more exclusive to US shores.
How do you feel about Stila possibly not being available in your country?
Will you miss it?

One day, not today but one day soon, the Muse will come to terms with the fact that we never, ever get the good stuff in the US. For example did you know that DHC introduced Rose the Beauty Collection within Asia but not within the US? Proceed to go right ahead and stamp your feet and cry, the Muse did.
I’m suck a sucker for anything that’s rose related in terms of cosmetic and skincare! I recently hauled some of the DHC Rose the Beauty Collection one item of which I’ll be bringing you a review of today!
Jump for it!
So far I’ve been testing out plenty of yummy goodies from the DHC Rose the Beauty Collection and loving it but one item I’m utterly disappointed in is DHC Shiny Color Base Q10. Ew no likey.
Few things to know before I tell you all about this base. My skin is rather dull at the moment, it’s looking drown out from lack of sleep, change of weather, etc…it’s also terribly dry too at the moment since it’s in that adjustment period between wanting to be a bit oily and still wanting to be dry because of the cooler air.
On with the review!
The entire Rose the Beauty Collection comes housed in some sincerely cute packaging. The base is packaged in a tiny rose pink color bottle with a squeeze top tip for simple, mess free application and a sweet little rose shaped top. The sweetness ends with the packaging.
Really disappointed in this one.
It’s available in three shades and I choose Shiny. Shiny being for oily skin types but a pink shade that I deemed suitable for my skin tone. Now the problem wasn’t the skin type selection I made at all but just the general formula and feel of the product.
Don’t quote me on this but I believe it’s an SPF 30 which is rather fabulous for one small base. The product is used as a base, prep prior to foundation. It contains Q10 to repair skin and is an anti-aging ingredient.
I admit that I expected it to smell of roses so I was slightly disappointed it wasn’t. Now mainly I didn’t like the formula on my dull skin, it looked strangely iridescent. The shade is a creamy beige, far from pink and I was hopeful it would lighten, brighten, and erase dullness but for the most part it does nothing of the sort which, in it’s defense, wasn’t promised anyway. But I have come to expect Japanese bases to brighten my skin up. The formula contains a multi-color pearl granule and this in itself could be why I didn’t like it since this casts an eerie glow on my face and makes my already full face look even fuller eep! Not a good look. On top of this it sits on top of my skin rather than sinking in and absorbing fully, yak!
For the most part the overall formula was what disappointed most. It felt terribly wrong going on and proceeded to make me look even more washed up than I was already looking. I was already dull to begin with so this just added to that washed up, tired look. The entire point of a good base is to prep skin well for makeup and offering a good, flawless working canvas for foundation. This did none of that.
Sadness. Really wanted to love this but just wasn’t feeling it!
Anyone try anything from the DHC Rose the Beauty Collection?

I got my haul of rose goodness from my favorite online shop Imomoko
If you’re a fond fan of Art Deco Cosmetics and always wished you didn’t have to hunt them down all around Europe and have them sent back to you via airmail you’ll be happy to know they are now available via HSN!
Current offerings are small but I’m sure they’ll expand it slowly. At this point it’s just nice to see the brand readily available some place within the US. Check your Tivo’s because I think they have an up and coming presentation on the line shortly.
What do you think?
Fan of Art Deco Cosmetics?
Happy to see ‘em on HSN?
