[review] HiShop - Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain & Farmasi BB Cream

"HiShop - Making Beauty Accessible."

Pardon me for my tardy posting on the HiShop May Ambassador Surprise Pack, I know May is so past tense right now and we are already in the mid of June, well I was quite occupied with my research work lately, so bare with me ya. 

If you were wondering what HiShop Ambassador is all about, you may check it out (here). Last month in the  HiShop Ambassador Welcoming Pack, I have the Touch In Sol Lip Stain which I love it to bits (review). As for this lovely month, I was on cloud nine for receiving 2 full size items from HiShop to be reviewed, literally 2 ! A BIG FAT THANK YOU to Mabel for her hardwork and effort in handpicking the items for each of us according to our preference, making me feel special and exclusive.

The first item that I spotted in the lovely HiShop May Surprise Pack is the...

Farmasi Cosmetic BB Cream - All In One (Medium to Dark), 50ml (RM 39.90)

Farmasi All-In-One BB (Blemish Balm) cream is perfect for everyone especially busy women. It offers a broad spectrum protection, soothes and moisturizes skin, disguises blemishes and has anti-ageing properties. Essentially, its a moisturizer, anti-ageing cream, sunscreen, primer and foundation all rolled into one. It comes in 2 tones : Light and Medium Dark. 

The Farmasi All-In-One BB Cream claims to :-
  • Produce a very natural, "no make up look".
  • Provides coverage like foundation would, but since it has a ultra light formula, it doesnt clog the pores. 
  • Contains multi-vitamins and ingredients (Macadamia Oil, Vitamin B3, SPF 15, Silk Protein, Collagen & Argan Oil) that would help to improve skin over time. 

Although Mabel has yet to meet me in person, but I have to really salute her in choosing the right BB cream tone for my olive skin. The Farmasi BB Cream was as its said, it has a relatively light texture that is easy to apply without much blending and it doesnt clog my pores too. I have tried a couple BB cream from different brand, but it was a turn down for me due to the thick and creamy texture of the cream that would clog my pores especially on my cheek, making my face blush like as tho they (the pores) are gasping for air. Texture wise, I like it very much, but the Farmasi BB Cream has a very peculiar scent that I dont fond of. It smells like the mishmash of very strong feminine perfume and maybe some body wash, I am not sure did I put it in the right way but sometimes, there are just some fragrance, by the first try of it, you will know its just not your cup of tea. This is what happened to me with the Farmasi BB Cream. 

Dont get me wrong the Farmasi BB Cream does offer what it claims, like the "no make up look" and not clogging my pores. After one layer of application, it does conceal most of my black heads and pores on my face without making my pores suffocated. Do try it out on your skin before making any decision on it, perhaps the Farmasi BB Cream scent is your cup of tea, who knows... 

Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain - Lip Gloss & Cheek Blusher (Nymphette), RM 80.00

The Supermodel Stain can be used to smudge onto cheeks or tap onto lips for a very exciting wash of color. Comes in sexy crimson compact with mirror for added convenience. Beautifully scented, the long lasting formula holds through all skin types. 

Bonus : Contains castor seed oil and beeswax for their moisturizing properties. Also enables you to achieve a smooth, and even application. 

Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain - Lip Gloss/Stain, pardon me for calling it Lip Stain, because for texture wise, it felt very much like lip stain rather than lip gloss. And as seen from the swatch on my hand, its extremely pigmented as compared to lip gloss. To use this, I would usually apply a layer of lip balm before putting on the Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain, which is rather dry in texture and if I were to apply it directly on my lips, it will get stuck in my crack lines, making the application uneven. 

As when it comes to using the Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain as a cheek blusher, a few dab and smear of the highly pigmented color is sufficient to bring out the rosy cheek in a person. Trust me just one finger and one swap on the Supermodel Stain is more than enough to smear around your cheek, else if you over do it, you will be looking like a angry cartoon with his boiling red face ! lol

Here is how I look with the Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain on lip and cheek.

Likes ♥
  • Love the idea of having a specially handpicked surprise pack, deemed to be exclusive and special in a way.
  • The Farmasi BB Cream was very light and easy to apply, but it has a very odd scent to it. On the upside, it doesnt clogged my pores because there are some BB cream which I have tried, gave me a sense of "trapping my pores" under the layer of BB cream with a light tingly sensation and my cheek would eventually blush like as tho I was under the sun. 
  • Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain was very compact and cute in design, small enough for me to just put inside my pocket and touch up on my lip and cheek make up on the go. 
  • It does stand up to its name, the Supermodel Stain, has lasted pretty long on my lips, even when I bite my lips, drink or eat, my lips was still looking plumpy and red.
  • Another thing I really like about the Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Stain is that it highly pigmented and it can be used as a cheek blusher too !


  • The Farmasi BB Cream has a very peculiar and quite strong scent that I dont fancy, tho it doesnt till the stage of irritating my nose but it feel one kind having the scent on my face. 
  • The Lip stain was quite dry in term of the texture as compared to the Touch In Sol Lip Stain (here). So I would recommend to put on a tad extra lip balm before proceeding to the Jelly Pong Pong Supermodel Lip Stain. 

My rating for the HiShop May Surprise Pack : 3.5 / 5

P.S. Thanks Mabel for handpicking all the items for me, you have just made me fallen in love with lip stain. ♥
