Hey guys! It was pouring rain in Seoul yesterday, but today is sunny as can be. Monsoon season can be the worst time for makeup wearers because of the humidity and the muggy air tends to melt off out makeup especially our eyeliners. Today I’m reviewing the Pony Effect Long Wear Precision Liner. It came out in June along with the Stay Fit Matte Lip Colours which I love! Do I love the liners as much as the liquid lipsticks? Keep reading to find out more.
There are 10 colors to choose from and I bought #Majestic Purple and #Secret Mint. Both are perfect colors for the summer season. 8 out of the 10 are matte types and the the remaining two are pearly. The packaging is sturdy, the cap clicks on well and the rotation isn’t flimsy or loose. The liners are auto type liners, so you don’t have to sharpen it. The liner ‘lead’ size is pretty small so you’ll always get a sharp line. Which is good for me because I always seem to sharpen more than necessary and I feel like a wasted so much product. One thing is that you can’t put too much pressure when you’re applying or it breaks. It’s happened twice and it’s a big loss because there’s only about 4cm of product which isn’t alot, so that’s a bit of a bummer. Even more so because of the 14,000KRW price tag… it’s so expensive for so little and it’s not even a department store brand! Dang Pony… making bank off my monies lol >_<
The formula is smooth and glides on pretty well, there isn’t much drag. I think because the soft texture it breaks easily. The pigmentation is pretty good too, going it over it twice after the first line dries gives it the best color and lasting power. It does wear for quite a while, I kind of wish I bought a dark color to see if it transfers because the colors that I bought I can’t really tell. I will say though that even after being doused in rain the liners stayed put. It’s also quite rub proof, it’s good at staying where it’s supposed to be and eve if I accidentally/intentionally rub my finger over the liner it doesn’t rub off.
SO… do I love it as much as the Stay Fit Matte Lip Colours? I’m gonna have to say no. I really don’t think these are worth it, I think if there’s a color that you really like then go for it, but with how it breaks off so easily, amount, and the price, I’d rather pay a bit more for something more high end or pay less for similar performance results. As much as I have enjoyed Pony’s products this one was just alright. I’ll enjoy what I have left of it, but I probably won’t repurchase. If you have any questions let me know in the comments below.
