I was very intrigued by the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara, when it came in my October Glossybox . I will confess to having a little tiny obsession with finding the perfect mascara. I’ve mentioned it before, but I would really like to find a black mascara that thickens my lashes without giving me deadly spikes. I also like them to stay curled, and ‘upright’. I have tried more than I should admit to (here and here are a couple, but I mention one in nearly every blog post; sorry, not sorry), and have multiple tubes on the go at all times.
So. This Jelly Pong Pong mascara is supposed to continually curl lashes throughout the day. Now this is not the time to get into a discussion about whether they mean continually or continuously, because I can’t say with certainty that it does either.
I have used this mascara a few times, and while being lovely, it certainly didn’t spontaneously curl my eyelashes. However, ignoring my interpretation of Jelly Pong Pong’s claims, this is actually a really nice mascara. It isn’t overly wet, but isn’t dry and clumpy either. When I used eyelash curlers prior to applying, my eyelashes didn’t droop and straighten, which is a massive plus. Despite being large and poky, the brush is fantastic for separating the lashes and giving lift.
If you want fairy lashes and don’t mind the high price (£17.95 here), then I would definitely recommend the Jelly Pong Pong Fairy Lashes Curl Mascara. Although it isn’t exactly what I have been looking for, it is pretty darned close, and I will definitely continue to use it. Whether or not I will repurchase, I am not sure as £18 is a little more than I would like to pay.
