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!

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.

ACK dontcha just love MAC Lipglass in Pink Grapefruit? I’m also sporting Lancome Absolue Makeup in the above picture on a completely prepped face!

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!

    Kayvid: OMG! You look gorgeous Muse! Seriously! Wow!
    This product seems amazing. At first I thought you are reviewing the Pearl Powders that I remember reading about somewhere on your blog…where are those available? Can you point me to your entries that may have these reviewed? Any popular brands in these?

    Oh my, so pretty!
    I am mad that I am having a financial crisis right now and cannot afford anything until the powers that be fix things.
    (I have a whole 50p to my name!)

    Kayvid: No, not that link…umm..it’s a pearl powder that you had spoken of as being a Chines healing item which is also used in soups and can be applied to face…is vastly sold in asia and is pretty darn expensive…what is that called? Does that bring back anything?

  • Sher

    I love the concept!! The 2nd one looks like I must get it for myself 🙂

  • Tove

    Wow, those looks like they work a lot better than most of those pearl-type products usually do … I mean, you can actually tell the difference between the color outside and the color inside the pearl, and the shimmer is lovely. They look absolutely stunning on you; I especially love the first set of pictures!

    This product sounds amazing. I really like Goddess Skin, the colors are gorgeous!

  • the Muse

    hey kayvid!

    Sorry for the delayed reply honey 🙂
    ahhhhhhhh haaaaaaaaaa I see what you mean now 🙂

    I was discussing that with gracie in a comment 🙂

    It’s actually called Pearl Powder 😉 hehe! You can find it in Asian markets occasionally and yes you can consume it as Asians (particularly Chinese) have seen a dramatic skin improvement by eating it 🙂

    Birds Nest is another one that you can also enjoy in a soup and is very good for skin!

    Where are you located? Any asian markets or locales you can visit to get these? if not a few select online shops do sell both but they are a bit costly 🙁
