I ordered the Pony x Memebox Shine Easy Glam 2 eyeshadow palette from Memebox Korea last week. If you aren’t familiar with Memebox you can check out last weeks post here to know more about their beauty shopping app that you can download on your phone. So I knew that Pony, hip Korean makeup artist, was about to launch her own line in time for the holiday, but I wanted to check out the previous products that she collaborated with Memebox.
This palette is an upgrade from the previously released shine easy glam eye palette. Its the same colors but each shadow is now 13g which is about a 40 percent increase from the first one. The case is stronger and now has a magnetic closure which I like a lot. The formula has been enhanced with ruby, pearl, and amethyst powder to give you more sparkle for your bucks. Also, it has added rose hip oil that helps to prevent shadow and glitter fallout while keeping your eyelids moisturised and youthful looking.
Now let’s get on with the palette review! This handy case fits eight luxuriously sparkly colors that lean toward the warm side of the color spectrum. So if you don’t like glittery shadows and prefer cool tones over warm ones, I suggest that this might not be the best choice for you. But if you are with the Korean majority of women who like a little or a lot of bling in your eye look then this is definitely a gorgeous palette.
The texture is really soft and velvety and when you apply it there is surprisingly little fallout and sticks well to the lids even without a primer. The pigmentation is also good, its not fantastic but its good. For sure the lighter shades like shine dew, shine peach, and shine beige are very translucent and are mostly there to highlight and accent. But, you can layer it up to give it more color, so all the colors are very buildable to your liking and blends well with one another. The glitter is very glossy and it is amazing when your eye hits the light and it just reflects into a thousand facets.
Here are the color profiles-
Shine Dew– translucent warm white with a mix of very fine gold and silver sparkles
Shine Beige– light beige with a mix of very fine gold and pink sparkles
Shine Peach– translucent pinky opalescent color with gold sparkles
Shine Rose– seen translucent deep rose pinky opalescent color with a mix of pink and gold sparkles
Shine Bronze– bronze with a mix of gold and pink sparkles
Shine Mocha– chocolate brown with gold sparkles
Shine Violet– violet with gold sparkles
Shine Choco– dark chocolate color with a tinge of pink shimmer, this is the least sparkly shadow in the whole palette
This palette goes for 30,000KRW on Memebox and there is another version of this one called Shine Easy Glam for the same price. I hope that I will be able to purchase the second one as well. I hope you like this review. I always love sharing with you guys things that I think are worthy of our beauty bucks ;).
