Review | Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer / Mainly Marta :: A Motherhood + Lifestyle Blog



What started as a digital diary to document a newfound journey as a stay at home mom / wife has quickly evolved into my own little corner on the internet where I share all that life brings my way -- the good, the bad, and those "aha!" moments. All with a hint of sarcasm, a dash of truth and bold European wit. Thanks for following along!

Review | Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer

Today I'm reviewing on of my all time favorite products that a received from IPSY (a make up subscription) -- the Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer! It's one of my favorite highlighting tools because it is so lightweight and soooooo easy to apply. 

Before receiving this product in my ipsy glam bag, I never heard of Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics, so I did a little bit of research. I found out that Jelly Pong Pong Cosmetics is based in London, United Kingdom and that they pride themselves in "creating make up a little bit differently." I found that tagline to be rather intriguing and kind of cliche because it seems like all make up brands rave about how "differently" they make their products compared to other brands. 
The Liquid Gossamer is intended to give the face "instant radiance while keeping the skin moisturized." The full size product was made in Italy and is labeled as having 8 mL/0.27 oz of the product inside. The packaging states that it is 48% water based and 78% Natural.
The website claims that it's "formulated with ultra-fine, light-refracting coated mica pigments in a sheer, soft cream that gives your skin an ethereal, youthful-looking glow" and I can attest to that! This product makes your cheek bones look so glowy -- I love it!
When I first got the liquid gossamer in the glam bag, I thought it was a sample size because it was so small, but when I looked at the Jelly Pong Pong website, I couldn't find the product in bigger size. I was sort of upset because I LOVED the product and thought it wouldn't last a long time, right?  Wrong. I received mine in November 2015, and it lasted until March of 2016 which was really surprising. 

When you open the cap, be sure to hold it upright because if not, the product will droop right on out. The product is very very runny -- hence the 48% water based claim. They really weren't kidding. The first couple of times I used it, I put to much on the board and because of my "no wasting make up policy," I ended up having a really glowy look. With time I learned that a small dot goes a really long way if you like a subtle, natural look.

I wish I had a photo for you guys to see how it looks applied, but I don't -- I ran out of the product before it graced my mind to take a picture!
The pricing, in my opinion, is kind of outrageous. It's listed as $22.95 + shipping and handling and it's not even one ounce. I do love this product, but to me the price isn't worth it when you can drive yourself to Target and get L'Oreal's True Match LUMI Liquid Glow Illuminator (review coming soon!) for more product and cheaper. I would probably consider this luxury make up since you technically have to import it from Europe. Due to that fact alone, I wouldn't repurchase this product. I loved it, but I just can't convince myself that one ounce for $23 + shipping and handling is a good idea.
So, I'll give the Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer a 3.7 out of 5
