Beauty Most Unusual: Wait, What? That Looks Like…..

As I was happily blogging away about the new Jelly Pong Pong Gift Set yesterday I realized something………


Dear Jelly Pong Pong,

Why does your Trifle Lip Balm resemble a penis? Send me an explanation, with a diagram via e-mail.

k, thanks!

Love you guys like no tomorrow.

the Muse

Yes, well, the irony of a lip balm which you are putting next to your lips that’s shaped like a penis is simply too good to not discuss plus my inner 14 year old boy demanded I tell you all about it.

Beauty Most Unusual?

A Muse that simply has too much time on her hands?

Or just plain perverted?

You decide.

Disclaimer: Jelly Pong Pong was not harmed in the making of this post. Jelly Pong Pong is English and will probably have a British sense of humor about this post.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    Haha, I don’t know if I’d want people to see me applying that!

  • KAT

    HAHAHHAHA! I could make a hundred nasty/gross jokes about this but I wanna keep your blog clean! lol

    • the Muse

      are you kidding kat? I had a hard time not saying nasty things myself LOL!

  • aretha

    dear muse, you are being v naughty for saying things like this on your blog lol! :p seriously though it does resemble one hahahaha

  • Casey

    I just started cracking up ๐Ÿ˜€

    I read the words on the image and was just like.. nah, she doesnt mean a penis… then I got to your writing and died a little. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • the Muse

      lmao casey ๐Ÿ˜€ ok kids, today we’ll be learning about Penis on Musings of a Muse lol!

  • Coral

    Lately when presented a picture with a couple of guys snickering I couldn’t figure out what they were laughing at…but this one is pretty clear. I go this one right away. And I’m thinking that if I saw this before I bought it I might just stay away from it. I don’t really need to be that suggestive.

  • Xail

    0_0 Dear Lord, I thought the same thing when I first saw this! I thought it was just me, though, since my mind is constantly in the gutter. Thank God you pointed it out, otherwise I would’ve felt like a creep if I had.

    Do you think that its appearance is just accidental, or that Jelly Pong Pong designed it that way on purpose? If it’s accidental, then they should’ve caught it. If it was on purpose, they have some serious issues to work through. …Either way, it’s a lose-lose situation.

    • the Muse

      LOL Xail!!!!!!!! I doubt they did it on purpose but hey they are British. Brits love bog humor LOL ๐Ÿ˜€ I find it funny at the very least plus the product is actually good LOL!!!!!!!

      • Xail

        Indeed the Brits do!

        But I wonder who would ever muster up enough courage to use this in public…bless that brave soul. If I was a bystander, my mind would be going nutty by the mere suggestions caused by the imagery. And I would probably laugh hysterically.

        • the Muse

          lol xail maybe it’s ONLY us that noticed it. You could swivel it up in public and perhaps no one would even THINK it looked like ahem, manly parts haha! could be our perverted minds ๐Ÿ˜€

          • Xail

            Haha, very possible. I’m the kind of person that’s always reprimanded for having my mind in the gutter. But the gutter’s such a fun place to be, especially when conversations like this arise!

          • the Muse

            xail I’d rather be in the gutter any day ๐Ÿ˜€ LOL! Bring our the perversions :D!

  • Vicky

    Lol muse you’re too funny use New Yorkers hve a great sense if humor and can make anyone laugh

  • Miss D

    Yup, it does resemble one. And I would totally get one of these, bring it out in front of people and start to apply it with enthusiasm! I would love to mess with people’s minds like that. I know…I’m terrible! XD

  • Cristi

    You know… this totally doesn’t look like a penis to me… Okay. Maybe a lil, but -only- because you mentioned it! XD

    I showed the picture of the lip balm to my boyfriend and he stared at as if thinking “Alright. Why am I staring at this???”

    When I asked him if it looked like a penis he was all “Nooo~” o.O <— face like that and everything XD

    I guess he and I are just really innocent people. ^^

    My best friend, however, would die laughing at the sight of this. XD

    I'll have to see what she says.

    • the Muse

      cristi possibly need more of a perverted mine like mine to see it ๐Ÿ˜€

  • LithiaBlack

    Well, it really looks like one but the product is very good when you get over the shape and use it ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Kate

    Mmm Trifle is hands-down my fave product of all time by JPP! ๐Ÿ˜€

    And YES omg that is what I thought too! I have that flavor btw, blackcurrent… I loves it. <3 I wanna try another flavor but it's so freaking hard to tell the colors apart from their tiny stock photo… e__e;

    I asked my friends if they thought it looked like a penis and most said "no I don't see it" and I was like "aw, come on!" haha.
