Hey guys! I’m here with a new review for you today and it’s the new Pony Effect Conceptual Eyes Quad from Korean makeup artist, Pony! She’s been releasing a lot of new stuff for the Pony Effect makeup line since the end of 2015. I bought one her collab eye shadow palettes with Memebox and the quality was great, so I had high hopes when I bought the two quads that were released this week. The Pony Effect line is distributed under Memebox Inc. so I don’t think the quality will be any less than what they have produced earlier.
There are 6 Conceptual eye quads to choose from #Innocence, #Lively, #Be Romantic, #So Gorgeous, #Eternal Seduction, and #Am Brown. All the color combinations were so pretty I had such a hard time picking out only two. Each quad is 32,000KRW which is a little pricy compared to the Memebox eyeshadow collabs she done. Oh well, there are people like me who are willing to pay hahahaha. If you do the math each 1.5g shadow is worth 8 dollars, but that’s not factoring the cost of the packaging etc. Also, if I compare it to the I’m Meme single eyeshadows that are 1.4g that costs 12,000KRW then buying the quad would be cheaper, so my point is that the quads are not a badly priced. Phew, got that out of the way.
Let’s talk about packaging! The shadows come in a rose gold palette with a enamel blue top with the logo in the center printed in rose gold as well. I thought it would have some weight but actually when I got them it’s like a rose gold plated plastic. In my opinion it doesn’t have that ‘luxury’ feel to it, but then again it’s lightweight and you won’t feel too bad about deporting them if you’re into doing that. The eye shadows are trapezoid shaped to form the zig zag lightening logo through the center, clever branding I say. Also it has a magnetic closure and a built in mirror.
All the quads have one or more shimmer shade. All except #Innocence have at least one matte shade. #Am Brown and #Be Romantic quads don’t have a glitter shade. I think there is a good variety among the palettes in color but also texture and finishes. Most all quads lean toward the warmer spectrum, #Eternal Seduction could be a neutral cool palette. The pigments in the two palette are good the glitter is easier to use with your finger, while the shimmer and matte ones you can pick up a lot of color with a brush. All of them blend very easily and there isn’t a lot of powder kickback. The eye shadows are long wearing and doesn’t fade or fallout while wearing it throughout the day. All of the eye shadows in the palettes are super smooth and silky to the touch. I really want to buy all 6! I really think I should have taken advantage of the 1+1 deal they had on Memebox on their launching day, but oh well. Anyway, here are the color profiles for the two palettes I purchased.
Love Me- warm peach gold shimmer highlight shade, it might seem a little too deep as a highlight, just use very sparingly near the brow bone and intensify as you comedown to the crease.
Roses- matte peach with medium depth, it’s for sure not a light peach it’s quite warm nearing orange. It’s a great transition color with Doom.
Moment- copper bronze shimmer.Transitions well with Love Me
Doom- Deepest shade of the four. Matte dry rose pink mauve.
Jolly-highlight shade, gold beige shimmer
Passion- tangerine orange with yellow gold reflects, point color can be used as a transition color or all over the lid for a colourful look.
Better-glitter bronze with gold and pink micro flecks. Pretty when applied over the other colors and in the inner corners.
Cheerful- Deepest shade of the four. matte light terracotta brown
I hope that you guys can get a hand on these quads! Thanks for reading my reviews always!
