Flutter those lashes

Jelly Pong Pong is something I've seen in magazines for a while now. It's a make up collection that according to their philosophy has been created to 'evoke the dreamer in you'. Now it's not something you can buy on the high street and is relatively expensive compared to drug store make up brands, which is one of the reasons I have never bought anything from them. But a friend very kindly gave me the Lash and Mascara Extension Set and I instantly fell in love with the packaging! The cute butterfly design and the lovely candy like colours used on the box instantly caught my eye.


Inside there was a set of false lashes and mascara, in a lovely little bottle. Very cute.



I am a lover of false lashes and always wear them on a night out and these are exactly the type of lases I would go for, soft and fluttery and not too heavy :) They really do feel super soft and also have a nice glossy appearance to them and they looked amazing on I have to say. My only gripe is that there was no lash glue supplied, luckily I already have some but if I hadn't I would have been awfully disappointed! They went on easily, probably the easiest out of all the false lases I've tried. I wore them from 12pm and they lasted the whole day and night without me having to mess with them and still looked perfect :)

According to the website the mascara is made with beeswax ' to allow you to layer multiple times without clumping & Vitamin E to condition lashes'. The mascara goes on lovely and you really can apply layer after layer without it going the slightest bit clumpy. It actually feels like it goes on nicely, the brush isn't rough and doesn't catch and drag your lashes. I tried it with the false lashes on and also on my lashes on their own. When used on my own lashes I have to be honest I wasn't overly impressed, it just didn't look as if I was wearing any mascara. Even a friend at work commented on the fact she thought I wasn't wearing any when really I was. So I would probably use it if I wanted a natural look in the day but not for a night out or a dramatic eye look.

All in all I am pretty impressed with this little set but for £15 I don't think it is something I would treat myself too, especially as you would only get a couple of wears from the lashes before having to throw them away and the fact you don't get any lash glue either. Anyone else tried anything from this range? What do you think?

  1. I hate that with some mascaras - you wonder how they even passed the test stage? The number of mascaras I've tried that have left me looking like I'm not wearing any, is really rather annoying! x
