I love a good lipstick, but I don’t often wear them for long amounts of time due to their drying effect. I have super dry skin and lips, and need to do all I can to keep them in good condition!
I was excited to spot the fun-looking Jelly Pong Pong Lip Blush in this month’s Glossybox (which the company kindly sends me). It is a beautiful red shade and looks like this:
It is described as a moisturising lip stain, which sounds like a great alternative for a lipstick in my eyes! It is designed to hydrate like a balm whilst providing just the right amount of silky colour.
The format is similar to some other high end lip stains, and it is the first time I’ve tried one like it. At first, I thought that the thick pencil format wouldn’t be quite precise enough to apply the product, but looked forward to testing it out!
My lips weren’t particularly moisturised before applying the Lip Blush, so I was really putting it to the test! As soon as I started to apply the product, I noticed how creamy it was – it glided on beautifully. At the same time, however, it did act as a stain rather than a lipstick (which is perfect for me!)
Here’s how it looked on the lips:
Doesn’t it look gorgeous? I can honestly say that this is one of my new go-to lip products – when reviewing a product, I rarely keep it on the for the rest of the day but this is still planted firmly on my lips!
The product retails for £12, which is a little more expensive than my usual favourite lip products, but it really is irresistible. I’m off to see which other shades are available from Jelly Pong Pong!
