It’s true. I get so excited about mascara. Because it promises the world. But then gives me nothing.
Thicker. Blacker. Darker. Longer. More volume. Curl.
You name it.
But I can’t seem to find any mascara that lives up to expectations.
I have long lashes, but they’re straight and thin.
Enter Jelly Pong Pong, with thanks to the October Glossybox. I was excited to they these Fairy Lashes, which promised me some extra curl. They actually promise to add curl through the whole day, due to some fancy spancy ingredient that’s inside it. Which I would love to tell you all about, but Virgin Media internet is about as much use as this mascara so won’t load the page.
Okay right, finally, it loaded. It’s Moringa Seed resin that’s in it that is supposed to dry and hold the lashes into a curl. FAIL.
Let’s look at the ingredients:
INGREDIENTS : Water (aqua), stearic acid, cyclomethicone, carnauba (carnauba
cerifera) wax, glycerin, PVP, ehtylhexyl palmitate, triethanolamine, beeswax (cera alba), moringa pterygosperma seed extract, methylparaben, propylparaben, [+/- (may contain/peut contenir) titanium dioxide (CI 77891), iron oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), chromium oxide greens (CI 77288), FD&C blue no. 1 al lake (CI 42090:2), D&C red no. 7 ca lake (CI 15850:1)]
Also I must mention that this brand is 100% cruelty free, so it might be something you want to look into. Just not this product.
Okay, I’m being a bit harsh here. The mascara didn’t do a bad job. It just gave me zero curl. Another thing is that it seemed to work less and less each time I used it.
It worked well with about 3 layers on, like the photos below, but now it just darkens the lashes a bit, only a few weeks later.
I wish I loved this, I really do. But I can’t help the way I feel.
Looking at the photos, it does look like it has done a good job, but as I said, it seems to have dried out pretty quickly and it’s pretty poor now.
