NEW Pony Effect Conceptual Eyes Quad Review

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.

#Be Romantic

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.

#Lively

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!

Clio Pro Layering Eye Palette Review

Hey guys!

I hope everyone is having a good week! If you follow me on social media you might know that I’m doing a beauty contest/workshop with Beauty Meets, a Korean beauty media agency, and I had such a long night yesterday learning about how to better film YouTube videos and editing and such. It was so good but also very overwhelming. Hahaha. Anyway, I just wanted to share what’s been going on with you guys before I started this post 🙂

So, I’m reviewing the Clio Pro Layering Eye Palette. There are three different color palettes to choose from, 01 Originality, 02 Handcraft, and the newest release this month 03 Softish. Originality is a variation of browns, Handcarft is a mix of rosy browns and muted pinks, and Softish is a pink-coral colorway. I bought the second one, Handcraft, at a Watsons because it was on sale. I kinda of wish I saw the new one before I got the one I got though just because it was new hahaha. Each palette comes with 10 shades varying from matte and shimmer. The one I have has 4 shimmery shades and the rest are matte. The case is quite slim so it doesn’t take up too much space.

I’m going to speak for the Originality Palette as I review the Handcraft one because they were released together, but as for Softish because it’s newer I don’t think I should assume that it is the same as two previous. The texture is a bit powdery, so applying eye primer beforehand is recommended. The pigmentation is OK, but not great. Especially the matte colors are really hard to get the opacity I want. I have to layer a couple times to get good color payoff. Blendability is average, it’s probably due to the light pigmentation. I also feel that some of the color go on a bit patchy. The eye shadow worn alone doesn’t last very long. For ‘pro’ palette it does not live up to its name. I was a little disappointed because the colors in the palette is really pretty and very wearable for anyone but it performs on the eyes quite poorly. I’m not saying it’s unusable, I just expected better. Each palette costs 32,000KRW. TBH not worth it.

Here are the color profiles:

Elm-base color matte light beige

Sandstone- beige pink with gold shimmer undertones (very similar with Sandy beach)

Sandy beach- peach pink shimmer with slightly larger white glitter

Rose wood- matte reddish brown

Willow- matte warm cocoa

Limba-matte muted salmon

Ekki-matte light dusty rose

Malas- pink brown with micro shimmer

Wildness-dark brown pink with pink reflects

Granite- dark eggplant (looks a bit muddy)

I hope this was helpful! If you already have this palette or you still want to purchase this palette I do have a tutorial on my YouTube channel. You can skip to 2:50 to looks at the eye part 🙂

 

Korean makeup- Pony x Memebox Shine Easy Glam 2 eye shadow palette review

Hey guys!

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.kbm

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.

DSCF8083Now 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.

DSCF8085The 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.

Shine Dew– translucent warm white with a mix of very fine gold and silver sparkles

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 ;).
