Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion Review

How about a lip treatment that’s amazingly tasty plus super emollient, glossy, and contains good for you ingredients to heal lips.

Sounds great right?

It is.

I was recently testing out Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion and I must say it’s on my favorite hit list at the moment! I’m lucky I even got the chance to review this because I was tempted to eat the entire jar instead of slicking it on my lips! Hey, I can’t help it! It smells amazing and tastes so yummie I couldn’t resist!

Before I get to the main review I should rave about the uber cute box and packaging on this! It comes in this really cute pink box that sports a lovely little cut out butterfly on top! So sweet! I’ll definately be storing this in the box rather than tossing it out! I love cute packaging!

The actual Lip Cushion is housed in a clear plastic jar with a cute little gold cap with pink lettering on the top spelling out Lip Cushion by Jelly Pong Pong on top.

Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion is available in two selections, Crush and Syrup. I believe both taste the same and the finish on both is probably the same too which is a translucent tint. The gloss isn’t pigmented but more a sheer gloss. I have Crush which looks like strawberry jam and tastes just as good. The taste is a sweet rose, berry flavor that you’ll want to lick right off your lips! Truly a perfect kissing gloss! Although both selections probably have the same finish it hasn’t stopped me from wanting to purchase Syrup! Cheeky Muse I am I must collect them all you see!

The formula is similiar to Shu Uemura’s Gloss Lacquer. It’s slick, glossy, highly emollient and wonderfully moisturizing. All the best things we want from a balm right? The balm also happens to promise to heal chapped lips! Fancy that! Sadly, the Muse is not currently sporting chapped lips but don’t worry I’ll tell you the low down on Lip Cushion’s healing abilities come Winter when I’m sporting cracked, dry lips!

If you love glossy lip balms there is absolutely no question that you’ll want to try this! It’s a perfectly cute and sweet balm that deserves some of your time and attention plus at
6 you can’t seriously go wrong by picking up at least one! Click on over and purchase one or two!

Sportin’ some Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion!

The Muse likey Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion and says go and grab some for yourself! Do keep in mind I can’t be held responsible if you eat this!

Muse Approval for this little guy plus a five star rating! Good Stuff!

Fall Collections 2008: Jill Stuart Illuminance

jill+stuart

Jill Stuart’s website has been updated with the latest Fall Collection for 2008 entitled Illuminance. I find the name quite fitting as the new shadow palettes and cheek blushes sport beautiful golds for Fall.

I wasn’t particularly excited about the Brilliance collection but I do feel a slight tinge of interest. I think I’ll be indulging in at least one of the blushes and three of the shadow palettes. The shadow palettes have been slightly revamped as well with an interesting design on the front of the compact. It’s been a little bit of a gap between purchases for me on the Jill Stuart front simply because the shadow palettes are extremely uneventful with similiar shades being used over and over and over again.

The Muse’s stash of blush compacts hauled from last season!

However, after such a long dry spell Jill Stuart Illuminance may be getting some of the Muse’s hard earned money! Palettes are 5,000 yen each and blushes are 4,500 yen each. Expect to pay $10-$30 USD more per item online.

Items I think I’ll be indulging in:

Eye palettes in Jewel Dress, Fantastic Light, Brocade Gold, and Flash Veil.

Blush in Gold Illuminance.

How about you?

Got your eyes on anything?

Majolica Majorca Fall Collection: A Girl With Wings

Majolica Majorca has updated it’s website with the newest Fall Collection entitled A Girl With Wings. Although the site is in Japanese it’s always nice to click around it and enjoy the interactivity on the site plus look at the pretty pictures of the new collection.

I admit that I’m not too thrilled with the collection but I will be indulging in all the items released. It’s not a huge release but most Fall Collections in Japan aren’t. Spring Collections are normally the season that Japanese cosmetic companies release bigger collections so we have to wait a bit before we see bigger and better things from Majolica Majorca and of course we have the special Holiday releases to look forward to!

The items released with A Girl with Wings are a new fiber mascara which is a first for Majolica Majorca and two new Trick On Eye Palettes. I’ll be getting all three items and reviewing them for you shortly. I think you can safely skip everything but I do recommend picking up the mascara. MJ Mascara is always on my hit list and I try each new version released. I’m paying retail for the items which is 1,500 yen per a palette and 1,200 yen for the mascara but expect to pay up to $6-8 more per palette and I’d say at least $8 for the mascara at online shops.

Gosh Cosmetics Fall Collection 2008: Spellbound

Spellboundad

Gosh Cosmetics has been on my hit list for a while. I read about it everywhere and I’ve seen some raving reviews. It’s a Denmark brand that recently hit our shores and is available for purchase online.
Gosh Cosmetics has tempted me for so long and I think I’m going to finally indulge in a few purchases to see if it lives up to all the hype I hear. The Fall Collection looks stunning in particular the eyeshadow trios!

See of yourself if you don’t believe me:

That cranberry pink trio shall be mine! Hmmmm…expect a review soon! The collection consists of four new Effects colors (these are loose shimmering pigments), four new shades of eyeshadow trios, two new colors of shimmering of the eyeshadow stick, and three new shades of eye liner.

Visee Fall Collection 2008: Glamorous Hunter

visee

Our friend Kodi Kumi is back in full swing advertising Visee’s Fall Collection. After a rough patch of publicity it’s nice to see her back in the promo for Fall!

A few items are being released with Visee’s Fall Collection but of course the item that really jumps up at me is the new Glam Hunt Eye Palettes. Visee makes a great eye palette as you may have guessed from my previous raves. These are a revamp from the last few releases and the colors are very suitable for the cooler weather that will be upon is soon!

The palettes come in five styles and include five shades of shadow plus a brush for application. I see at least three color combos I want but I may just indulge in all five.

Each palette is 1890 yen but it’ll probably be a bit cheaper due to various drugstore discounts in Japan.

Expect a review on these shortly!
