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!
Jelly Pong Pong Omnibronzer
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 $16usd nabs you a cute duo of color to make makeup simple when life is being complicated!
Jelly Pong Pong Love Rouge
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!
Jelly Pong Pong Gloss Bonbon
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 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!
The Muse has an angel that takes very, very good care of her! When the Muse needs her Japanese fix the angel is always around to get what is on the Muse’s wish list (I’m very lucky to be blessed with wonderful people in my life!)!
Today I got a gorgeous package that I have holding my breath waiting for and inside were two items that were most definately on this Muse’s wish list!
Kesalan Patharan French Couture Eyeshadow Palettes!!!!!!!!!!!!
I’m quite pleased with these and I’m happy I ended up purchasing them as I wasn’t sure at first if they were worth it. I’m happy to report that you should snatch these up before they are gone for good!
Out of the entire collection of French Couture nothing else appealed to me aside from these two palettes but at first I was somewhat skeptical if they were worth a purchase but my mind was quickly changed when my sweet mate Iris said they were most definately worth getting!
The palettes are available in two flavors s005 and s004 (someday I’m going to convince the Japanese to stop naming palettes with numbers and letters! It’s bloody confusing!) . The shadows inside are three strips of shimmering color that range from dark, medium, to light which means you have just about everything you need within this compact to create your eye look!
My favorite of the two would have to be s005 which consists of a shimmering gold, a shimmering brown, and a gorgeous peach color. s004 is equally beautiful and includes a shimmering silver, a deep shimmering purple, and a lighter purple.
Of course the Muse in her sick, twisted little mind doesn’t want to use them at the moment because of the beautiful design imprinted on the middle powder! It’s a swirling flowery affair that will be ruined once you dip your brush into it. Le sigh the life of a cosmetic junkie is sometimes too stressful!
KP has outdone themselves with these very sweet palettes and I’m just enjoying looking at these at the moment and thinking up exciting eye looks to create!
The palettes are available for $55SGD and 3,990yen so I’m happy to report that the import of these to Singapore hasn’t caused too much of a price jack and the palettes are respectfully a few dollars off (for us yanks that’d be $37USD and $34USD).
I have other KP shadow trios and I do like the line of shadows from KP as they are quite pigmented but I do feel they are slightly chalky in texture and rub off a bit easily. These are the first really pretty shimmery shades I’ve seen from KP and I’m enjoying the novelty of them!
Overall, if you have the means these should most definately make an appearance on your wish list!
Now the Muse’s angel always spoils her and she also happened to included an awesome KP makeup bag for me which I’m utterly loving at the moment! It had a cute mini KP brush set inside too! Plus another cute Stila Girl makeup bag in pink The Muse loves pink! Having good friends around that take such lovely care of me always makes my day!
Does Iris EVER fail us?
The first high quality images that I’ve seen for Majorca Majolica’s Holiday Collection have been graciously shared with us by my most lovely mate Iris on Rouge Deluxe!
Head on over and have a tissue ready to catch the drool (or in my case I’m actually foaming at the mouth after seeing this collection!) that will dribble from your mouth!
The new Majolook palette looks amazing as does the Lash Freeze!
I’m thinking I need two Lash Freeze, one eye palette, and powders!
Start making your list and checking it twice as this collection will be out on November 21st (and it can’t come soon enough for eager Muses everywhere!)!
I’m loving that MJ is keeping with the diamond sparkle theme/trend of the season!
What do you want?
Tell the Muse!
I’ve been meaning to get to this for ages and never had a chance!
If you’re by chance looking for a review on older or new Japanese Cosmetics I’ll tell you my #1 resource to find out if I should or shouldn’t purchase an item!
You’re thinking I’m going to recommend you visit Rouge Deluxe but actually I’m not. Now I visit my lovely, sweet, gorgeous friend Iris at Rouge Deluxe obsessively 5 times or more a day ( Hey I’m her biggest fan!)!
But when I’m seeking out a review on Japanese products I must deem Kathi the Queen of reviews. You probably know her from Cozy or you probably know her from MUA. She’s an absolute walking encyclopedia for all good things Japanese!
With that said I recommend you have a visit with her and go through her archives of over 200 cosmetics that she’s used, taken photos of, and reviewed (I find myself drooling whenever I go back to some of her older reviews)!
If you’re an MUA member you can check here out by clicking here.
If you’re not an MUA member you’ll have to become a member to read the reviews Being an MUA member has it’s benefits and it’s well worth your time as it’s a good source of cosmetic information!
Kathi’s a sweetie and a wonderful girl and takes time out of her busy schedule to do some incredible reviews! I dunno what I’d do without her!
So an Ode to Kathi and her great reviews on MUA!
Thanks for making the world of Japanese Cosmetics all the more brighter my friend!
One of favorite companies, Kose, has some great brand branch offs that I adore. Kose, like Kanebo, is made up of several companies that make some wonderful high end cosmetics.
Some of these companies you may be familiar with they consist of Visee, Fasio, Beaute de Kose and one that I’ll be discussing today, Esprique Precious.
Esprique Precious has a great line up of various cosmetic items and the one I’ll be reviewing today is the Esprique Precious Illuminate Nuancer Pearls.
These pearls quite remind me of Guerlain’s Meteorites at a fraction of the cost. These come in two color variations 01 and 02. 01 is the color I have and I’m currently wanting 02. 01 is a sheer, shimmering, iridescent powder while 02 appears to have a bit of color to it and almost a bronze look!
The brush the pearls come with is very soft and full and it offers a nice area of coverage on your cheekbones and face when applying plus no shedding which is a pet peeve of mine
I give these quite a good, solid review and recommendation they work fantastic at lightening up your face and giving a soft, dewy glow after blush application or you can always use these on a fresh bare face for a bit of a soft, light to your cheeks!
When you run the brush across these you don’t pick up a ton of powder which pleases me as I hate the messy application I sometimes run into when using Meteorites and the loads of powder one stroke of my brush comes up with! With the Illuminate Nuancer pearls I end up with a very fine layer of powder that I can stroke on gently and not end up with tons of fall out!
If you’re fair skinned these will work wonderfully at making your cheeks glow, if you’re medium skin they will give your skin a dewy look, and I assume if you’re a bit of a dark skin tone you’d notice a bit of a shine to your face (a nice shine).
The shimmer isn’t insane in this powder so no worries about looking like you have a ton of glitter on your face. It’s just a very fine shimmer that all mixes well with the iridescence of the powder to create a glowing look!
I personally use mine as a sort of finishing powder to complete a look. After blush application I apply a quick stroke or two of this and I’m looking pretty and bright! It does a good job of waking my face up and I like to stroke some under my eyes which makes me look like I had quite a few hours of sleep when in reality I haven’t!
For the life of me I can’t remember where I purchased these. It could be JpMon! But I will give you a rundown where you can purchase them!
Adam Beauty has these in both colors for $29 plus reasonable shippings costs.
JPmon has these for $36 plus shipping costs.
These have become a must have in my morning makeup routine! I recommend grabbing some for yourself and giving them a whirl! They are most definitely Muse approved!
