Today’s post will be featuring something SUPER exciting! (for me, at least. It’s been around in the world for a while lol) When this product’s sneak peeks hit the beauty industry, everybody lost their s***. There was confusion, there were questions, but most of all, there was excitement and awe.

The brand had everybody already obsessing over their facial oils, and the new release only made them hungrier. We’re talking about the infamous Farsali – you might all know them for the drippy droppy posts on Instagram. Farsali has managed to catapult itself from being an indie brand to becoming a pretty-much-sold-out brand at Sephora.

CLAIM

Jelly Beam’s innovative texture applies like a gel, but sets like a powder, leaving behind the elusive wet-satin glow without the slip and slide typically associated with liquid and cream highlighters. This formula’s concentrated, buildable pigmentation takes you from a naturally lit-from-within glow, to a show stopping beaming glaze, and every level of luminous in between.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS

I will admit, apart from the product itself, I LOVE the packaging! The Jelly Beam is packed in a sleek, rounded square tub. It’s weighted, it feels luxurious AF, and even though there is a good chance of it getting messy, I still don’t mind it. The tub is clear with a twisty gold cap that tightly seals the product to prevent it from drying out. (A1 effort right there, Sal!)

Farsali Jelly Beam

The product is exactly it’s namesake – a jelly. It even jiggles in the tub! It sounds bizarre, but it works exceptionally amazing! Glazed (the shade) is soft champagne with soft gold pearl. The product on application doesn’t look like shimmer, but a stunning glow. It shines beautifully and doesn’t emphasize texture or pores.

The best way to apply Jelly Beam is by picking up the tiniest amount (a little goes a LOOONG way) with your fingers and tapping it onto your skin till it’s blended out. Also, it dries pretty quickly so apply it to one area at a time!

The product is pretty long lasting and can be builded up for intensity.
