I purchased my first Jelly Pong Pong Lip Cushion back in 2008 (CLICK!) and ever after that faithful day its been a part of my HG (holy grail) product line up.
Now that Summer is finally approaching (Humidity has landed today Yay, finally!) I’m about ready to haul out my Lip Cushion as it’s the perfect treat for parched lips in the warm weather.
An irresistible cushion-soft gloss with a squishy, elastic texture. Apply it on lips for a sheer, translucent tint & to moisturize chapped skin.
This comes housed in a delicate little pink box with a fluttery cutout butterfly. As far as I’m concerned outer packaging is just as important as what’s inside that counts and Jelly Pong Pong always pleases with their girlishly sweet attention to great packaging.
Inside is a small plastic jar of balm. It has a gold lid with a swirly font that’s both pretty and practical. My favorite shade of Lip Cushion is Crush which is a deep berry shade but I was recently sent Cerise which I didn’t already own and was pleasantly surprised at the way it stained my lips a delicious shade of strawberry red.
The gloss formula is an emollient, cushion-y texture that wears comfortably on lips and leaves behind a shiny, glossy finish. The texture kinda reminds me of a firm jelly or jam…kinda like a jam or jelly you’d get along with some pancakes at a diner (the little travel size condiment portions). Cerise doesn’t taste nearly as lovely as Crush but does have a very interesting flavor that I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. It’s sort of fresh cucumber with bits of fresh floral and fruits…weird but somehow it all combines together in a refreshing flavor!
Although running towards being a more sheer finish the balm manages to tint lips a delightful shade of strawberry red for a healthy flush of color on lips.
I find Lip Cushion is one of those addicting little lip products that you’ll reach for again and again and again as the day goes on!
The jar packaging might put folks off who want to travel with the balm as dipping into the jar isn’t the most hygienic application method when on the road.
If you’re sensitive to fragrance or flavor in your balm you might want to avoid as this is heavily fragranced/flavored!
- Those who like tasty little lip balms to keep dry lips moist, happy, and tinted.
- Those who want a lightweight. shiny balm for Summer with a hint of tint!
- Those who adore pretty little lip balms!
- Those who aren’t keen on dipping fingers into a jar and prefer a tube for application.
- Those sensitive to flavored or fragranced lip products.
Jelly Pong Pong remains a very fond favorite of mine for many a year. The only thing I wish for is more colors and flavors! As of now the lines features three colors one of which is a clear shade…! Other than that it’s pretty much perfect in all ways. Who doesn’t love a lovely little lip balm that tastes yummy, leaves behind a shiny, glossy pout, and flushes lips with just a tint of color plus keeps lips hydrated and moist throughout the day?
Loves this one!
Very Muse Approved for purchase!
