Lancome Miel Glace vs Jelly Pong Pong Brazilian Sun: Dupes or Not?

Sunday, May 1, 2011

Having a makeup stash as large as mine, every now and then there are products that look pretty similar. In my recent ravings over the Jelly Pong Pong Brazilian Sun bronzer, I couldn't help but notice that it was actually quite similar to Lancome's Blush Subtil in Miel Glace.

Now for those of you not in the know, Miel Glace is one of Lancome's more celebrated blushes, and is a classic as a nude blush - you know, the type of blush you wear when you want some colour on your cheeks, but don't want it to be obvious.

Here are photos of both blushes side by side. Don't they look similar?

And here are the products swatched beside each other. As you can see, they are actually quite similar, although Miel Glace is a blush, and Brazilian Sun is a bronzer.

Although they are similar, there are still some differences between the two. Miel Glace has more shimmer than Brazilian Sun. However, the base colour is actually quite similar, although I think Lancome's blush pulls a little more ruddy than Jelly Pong Pong's bronzer.

So which one would I recommend you get, if you only could pick one? This is a tough choice, really. I guess it would boil down to whether you want to use it as a bronzer or a blush, and whether you'd want to apply the product over your body, or just the face. If you intend to use it for the entire body, I'd probably opt for the Jelly Pong Pong version, since you get 19g of product, versus the 5.1g of blush you get in the Lancome compact. However, the packaging (big paper tub) of Jelly Pong Pong's Brazilian Sun might make it harder to use than the Lancome's Miel Glace, which comes in a more accessible compact. I guess ultimately, it would be about packaging and price.

  1. I personally prefer Lancome's. For me I find that bronzers sold are usually too orange and have too much red and as a MUA i would rather have a neutral less orangey one. That's my humble opinion. x

  2. I absolutely loved Lancomes Miel Glace and it was the perfect blusher I had ever tried! Need to get some more Lancome blushes now :)

  8. I haven't tried the jelly pong but let me just say I am NOT a blush girl. I tried the miel glace and it is the most flattering perfect your skin but better blush. I'm in love and will always have it!
