My April Glossybox samples arrived in their pretty pink box last week. Perfect timing for my sample Sundays.
April’s Glossybox was filled with some interesting little goodies – some I had never heard of – another reason why I love the Glossybox. My box included the following products: Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics Lip Blush • Schick Hydro Silk Razor • Boscia Recharging Night Moisture • Pop Beauty Eyeliner • Heartland Fragrance Epsom Bath Salts
Hmmm….what to sample first… The Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush of course! Just saying the name makes me smile so I gave this sample the honor of being the first out of the box.
The Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush is a moisturizing lip stain. The color I received was red – holy look at my lips and don’t laugh red – is what I should really call it. I am a girl who cannot wear red on my sweet little lips. My skin tone screams at me when I try to wear red but I wanted to try the Jelly Pong Pong anyways, because I can, and who knows they may have other colors if I like it.
Looking beyond the color, I tried it out and the stain applied very nicely to my lips. I didn’t put anything on my lips before applying and it felt like I was applying a lip balm or chap stick with color. I would say that the lip stain is very similar to Clinique’s Chubby Sticks. Once on my lips the stain had good coverage and lasted for an hour and a bit before I would have had to reapply (if I weren’t lying around in my jammies). I was disappointed with the product packaging – if I could call it that. The very first time I tried to apply the product the lip stick broke off and before I knew it my shirt was wearing the Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush instead of my lips! I’m not sure how it happened as I am not an aggressive lip stick applier so I had to chalk it up to poor packaging. Now if I wanted to use the lip stain again I would have to work around the cracked stick and be extra careful when applying.
I liked the product enough after trying it to see if there were perhaps some other colors and found the Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics website. Turns out they only have two colors of the Lip Blush – Red and Pink. You have to order the product from the UK and ends up costing $18.00 Canadian plus shipping. The color choices were not enough for me to order, but if I saw Jelly Pong Pong in a store I would be open to trying the Pink-a-licious color. Jelly Pong Pong – okay that’s the last time I will say it….
