Cute or Daft? Jelly Pong Pong Shadow Taffy

Make up brand, Jelly Pong Pong have special gift bags out that tend to be very good value for money. I got a gift bag recently that contained the Lip Orchid and Shadow Taffy from ASOS.

Here is the Shadow Taffy – possibly the cutest packaging and case, ever:

Oh yes – this duo palette comes in a pretty cardboard cage, held together with ribbons. How cute?

That bird? Yes that’s your palette. No you probably won’t be able to use it on the bus. Yes, it will probably fall off in you handbag.

Ready for more cuteness after the jump?Here is the birdy! It lives on the top of the generously sized eyeshadow palette:

I know its not a stuffed bird but it freaks me out a bit. Taxidermy freaks me out a bit. The ice lolly stick tail also disturbs me:

Its stuck on pretty snug. Oohhh how cute. Completely impractical but cute. You got to congratulate Jelly Pong Pong on their bravery:

Eh? There’s actually make up involved? Oh yes. Here is the duo which, lets face it, is more of a blusher duo (bronze and pink) than an eyeshadow one surely?

They are pretty lovely colours – pigmented and soft but not overly so. The bronze is kind of pretty as is the hot pink but for me, not eye shades, more cheeks and even lips.

But of course….this is not exactly the kind of palette I am going to use every day. This is something to be marvelled in its pretty pink cardboard cage.

What do you think? Cute or just too gimmicky? What animal would you have stuck on top of palette?

    Super adorable!!! Since the brand is called Jelly Pong Pong, maybe I would like to see some food items stuck on top? For example strawberries? hahaa

    Meh I’d like it more if it had better selection of colours – like purples or a quad of different colours.

    I can’t get over the fact that the bird looks like it has a stick stuck up its ***, haha 😀 Poor birdy :/

    I totally mistook the eyeshadow for lip gloss… & then bronzer/blush. How sad :( The packaging is so childish but I know cat’s that would enjoy this!

    ahh I love the birdy. I can’t get over how innocent and unsuspecting it looks. Haha but I would rather have just the bird, the product is a bit meh
