Pony Effect ” Deep & Pure ” Lip Tint review

Aaand – I’m back guys! 😄

We’re continuing where we left off with the Pony Effect review series ! This time, I’m here with a lip product, in this case – the PONY EFFECT “Deep & Pure” Lip Tint review.  As always, I’ve divided this review into several sections, so feel free to skip what you don’t want to read about 😊 :

Iiii – evo me konačno ponovo na blogu ! 😄

Nastavljamo gde smo stali sa serijalom Pony EFFECT. U ovom slučaju, u pitanju je recenzija PONY EFFECT “Deep & Pure” tinte za usne. Bez neke preduge (i dosadne ) uvertire, prelazimo direktno na stvar. Naravno kao i uvek, recenzija je podeljena na nekoliko celina , tako da možete preskočiti sa čitanjem onoga što vas ne zanima 🙂 :

Packaging / Ambalaža

The lip tint comes in a sturdy plastic tube with a standard doe foot applicator, nicely placed in a sleek cardboard box. Like with the rest of Pony Effect’s products, we have the same packaging color scheme – Rose gold & Navy blue. The front is in english and back in korean ( wish it was all in english, as for the shade name ). Now, the brand itself has a unique logo, in the shape of a sign for voltage (or thunder 😊 ). In this case, the color of the logo, represents the tint’s shade. You get 8.5gr/0.3oz of product ( a very nice ammount ), with a shelf life of 24 months after opening. The product is made in Korea by MemeBox.

Kao što vidite, tinta dolazi u elegantnoj kartonskoj kutijici, dok se sam proizvod nalazi u čvrstoj plastičnoj tubici, sa standardnim sunđerastim aplikatorom za nanošenje proizvoda. Kao i kod ostale Pony Effect kozmetike, pakovanje je dvobojno – kombinacija roze zlatne i teget. Spreda je natpis na engleskom a pozadi na korejskom ( što donekle otežava da zapamtite naziv nijanse na svakoj tubici ukoliko ne znate jezik). Sam brend ima karakterističan logo, u formi simbola za napon ( ili munju 😬). Boja logoa ovde označava koje je nijanse sama tinta. Dobijate 8 gr proizvoda ( više nego dovoljna količina) sa rokom trajanja od 24 meseca nakon otvaranja. Proizvod je napravljen u Koreji od strane kompanije Memebox.

 

About the lip tint product / Malo o samom proizvodu

 

So, as the title says, this is a ” lip tint ” or as some would say a “lip stain”. For those who aren’t so familiar with this kind of lip product, this is something that I would put in between a lip gloss and – depending on the lip tint’s color intensity/finish / pigmentation, and a liquid lipstick.

In a sense, I’d say – something of a hybrid. When it comes to the product’s consistency it’s usually more runny ( very watery or in a gel like form ) – compared to a lip gloss or a liquid lipstick. As for the product’s finish – it can be glossy or more with a matte or velvet finish. Their main purpose is to give the lips a nice subtle (or bold) color , with a longer staying power than a lip gloss or lipstick (since they “tint” or “stain” the lips). 

 

Kao što i sam naziv proizvoda kaže, ovde je u pitanju tzv. tinta za usne. Ukoliko se do sada niste susreli sa ovakvim konceptom proizvoda za usne, ovo je nešto što bih ja stavila u kategoriju hibrida – nešto između sjaja i tečnog karmina za usne. Po teksturi i konzistenciji, dosta je laganiji i ređi, u poređenju sa jednim sjajem ili tečnim karminom. Kada govorimo o samom finišu, mogu biti kako sa sjajnim finišem, tako i sa mat ili baršunastom završnicom. Osnovna funkcija tinte je da usnama daje jednu suptilnu ili pak smeliju nijansu, koja će se zadržati na usnama duži vremenski period naspram sjaja ili karmina ( s obzirom da imaju tzv. efekat “bojenja” usana ).

 

Functionality & Usability / Funkcionalnost i upotrebljivost

Lip tints are very popular in South Korea, I’d say even more popular than lipsticks and lip gloss. When you look at it, I completely understand why. It’s supposed to be more comfortable to wear and re-applying is also less often, because of its staying power. Looks very natural, so it’s great even for those who don’t like to wear a lot of makeup. Gives you a healthy look and brightens the face, all in all – in theory, it’s just a perfect product on the go.

You can wear them in two ways : a more western style – in several layers, the way you would wear a liquid lipstick, or wear it in a more asian style – rocking the famous “gradient lip” ( you apply a bit of foundation/concealer as a base to caunteract the pigment in your lips. Then you apply the tint just in the inner center of your lips, blending it outwards to the rims, to get that shear, fading effect ).

I didn’t use foundation on/around the lips on purpose, just to see the tint’s longevity… Also, I didn’t edit these pictures, didn’t clean the lip rims, fix discoloration, peach fuzz, blur, etc., so the skin you see around my lips is actually bare ( photos are taken with my frontal phone camera in HDR mode /13mp/ natural light ).

Tinte  su vrlo popularne u Južnoj Koreji, moglo bi se reći čak  i popularnije od karmina i sjaja za usne. U osnovi, tinte bi trebale biti mnogo prijatnije za nošenje naspram recimo tečnog karmina, postojanost je takođe po pravilu duža. Uz adekvatnu nijansu, možete postići jedan vrlo prirodan i svež izgled, tako da su odlične za osobe koje ne vole da nose mnogo šminke. Generalno, odličan proizvod za svaki dan i za sve uzraste.

Što se tiče same upotrebe tinti, možete ih nositi na dva načina : više zapadnjački – slojevito, na način kako biste nosili tečni karmin, ili u skladu sa azijskim trendom tzv. ” gradient” usana ( kao osnovu na usne stavljate puder/korektor, nebili neutralisali njihovu boju. Zatim nanosite tintu na centralni, unutrašnji deo usana, blendirajući proizvod ka samom obodu za jedan ombre efekat ).

Application & Impressions / Nanošenje i utisci

 

So, I got this lip tint in the shade “Beautiful”. Now, the color is described as a light coral pink, but when I look at the color on my lips in person, I would rather describe it as a fuchsia or magenta . The product is very lightweight, not as runny like some other tints, and pretty easy to apply. The doe foot applicator is also nice to work with ( I wasn’t too precise when test applying on purpose, and I’d say it came out pretty neat in pictures). Of course, if you don’t like these applicators, you can always use a lip brush with the product. The tint is pretty scented (some won’t like that) has a nice, fruity, cherry scent. When you lick your lips, they feel a bit sweet, but it leaves no weird after taste in the mouth, which is a plus. This tint has a semi-matte finish.

Uzela sam tintu u nijansi “Beautiful”. Boja je opisana kao koralno pink, mada s obzirom kako izgleda na mojim usnama, pre bih je nazvala magenta nijansom pink. Proizvod je vrlo lagan, ne toliko redak poput nekih drugih tinti i vrlo se lako nanosi. Dolazi sa standardnim sunđerastim aplikatorom za nanošenje proizvoda, na koji zaista nemam zamerki. Naravno, ukoliko ne volite ove aplikatore, uvek možete koristiti i četkicu za usne. Tinta je moram reći dosta parfimisana (nekima se to neće svideti) – vrlo prijatan voćni miris, poput višnje. Kada liznete usne, oseća se jedna blaga slatkoća ali ne ostavlja nikakav čudan ukus u ustima, što je super. Ova tinta ima polu mat finis.

 

 

Pony recommends for the product to be layered as a lipstick. By this I mean – one coat of tint / let it set/ remove any excess with tissue/ second coat /set/tissue again/ etc., repeating this with as much layers as you want. The product layers beautifully, had no issues with this. Starts a bit tacky as you apply it, but once it sets, you’re good. The color is very buildable ( 3 coats are ideal) and won’t accentuate the lips texture. I have to say, it is perfection on the lips – it doesn’t dry out my lips at all ( which can happen with some liquid lipsticks and tints). The product perfectly moves with the lips if it makes any sense 😀 . Super comfortable to wear, I literally forget I have anything on my lips. If you layer it as recommended, it really doesn’t transfer and it’s also smudge proof. Now, as for the staying power, you do need re-applying after a few hours, especially if you eat and drink (had no issues with  layering the product). But, you won’t loose the color more than 60 % (which is good for a tint) . The lips are pretty stained and you’ll need micellar water to rub it all off. The product gradually fades, it doesn’t flake. Re-applying is super easy. It also doesn’t bleed as you can see below. 

I went right to the rim’s edge on the upper lip and a bit above the lower lip’s rim, to see if it will bleed/move – Nope, it didn’t. Also, it didn’t fade a lot more after this.

Poni savetuje da se tinta nanese poput karmina. U smislu, sloj tinte / sačekati da se slegne proizvod/ skinuti višak boje maramicom/ sledeći sloj / i tako onoliko slojeva koliko želite. Boja tinte se lako nadograđuje, kada je prvo nanesete, malo je lepljiva ali onog momenta kada se osuši, više je ne osećate na usnama. Proizvod se divno pomera sa usnama, zaista nemate osećaj da vam se uopšte išta nalazi na njima. Ne isušuje, a 3 sloja su idealna da dobijete jednu ravnomernu, intenzivnu boju. Ukoliko ga nanesete kako je preporučeno, zaista nema transfera. Boja se takođe ne razliva, što je jako bitno. Što se tiče same postojanosti, moraćete da je dodatno nanosite nakon par sati, pogotovu ako ste nešto jeli i pili . Boja dosta ravnomerno bledi, ne kruni se. Svakako nećete nikad izgubiti više od 60 % boje (sto je za tintu sasvim oke). Neophodna je micelarna voda kako biste je u potpunosti uklonili. 

Ingredients / Sastav

 

Like most korean makeup, this is also a skin care infused product. The tint is enriched with a nourishing flower complex and hyaluronic acid. The tint is also a cruelty-free product , without ingredients like : sulfates, phthalates, sodium lauryl sulfate, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, alcohol, mit, talc, mineral oil, tea, triclosan, coal tar, formaldehyde-releasers, dye ( does contain parabens ).

Kao i ostala korejska kozmetika, i ovaj proizvod je obogaćen sastojcima iz oblasti preparativne kozmetike. U ovom slučaju to je dodatak hijaluronske kiseline i nekoliko biljnih ekstrakata. Borba protiv znakova starenja je korejcima jako bitna i kroz dekorativnu kozmetiku. Proizvod nije testiran na životinjama i kao sastojke ne sadrži : boje, formaldehid, mineralno ulje, propilen glikol, katran, alkohol, sulfate, sodium lauril sulfat, triklosan, ftalate, metilizotiazolinon ( sadrži parabene).

 

The ingredients COSDNA list for one of the colors ( unfortunately, I couldn’t find the list for this exact shade on the website, but they all have the same base, just different coloring ingredients) :

Lista sastava ( nisam mogla da nađem na sajtu listu sastojaka za ovu nijansu, ali u osnovi sve se baziraju na istoj formuli, samo je razlika u korišćenim pigmentima ) :

As you can see, there’s hyaluronic acid, rose, damask rose and centaurena cyanus (although all pretty low on the list) – all three are good for hydration, some also known as ingredients high in antioxidants ( roses are rich in vitamin C ).

Hijaluronska kiselina, ekstrakt ruža i različak ( mada su svi dosta nisko na listi ) – sva tri sastojka su poznata po svojoj hidratantnoj sposobnosti kao i visokim sadržajem antioksidanata ( ruže su bogate vitaminom C ).

Any remarks ? / Ikakve zamerke ?

Have no issues with this product. Some won’t be satisfied with the staying power, I’m personally fine with it ( to be honest, having something on my lips that you can’t get off at all, would freak me out, so… xD ) . Again, It’s a matter of personal preference really. 🙂

Nemam nikakvih zamerki.  Neki možda neće biti zadovoljni sa njenom postojanošću ( mene iskreno ne privlači da na usnama imam nešto što se apsolutno uopšte ne skida, tako da… xD ). Što se mene lično tiče, ja sam zaista zadovoljna.

 

Do I recommend ? / Da li preporučujem ?

 

Absolutely !. I really liked this tint. It’s perfect for summer, especially with a nice tan. The ease of application, pigmentation, decent staying power – In general, I don’t see lip tints as products with more longevity than liquid lipsticks. So, I can’t complain much. If you like lip tints, or you want to try some, definitely check these out !. 🙂 I bought mine via TesterKorea for the price of 16,150 krw + shipping ( this varies based on the parcel’s weight ).

Definitivno !. Zaista mi se sviđa ova tinta, divna je za leto. Lako se nanosi, vrlo pigmentovana, zadovoljavajuća postojanost…Zaista nemam mnogo zamerki – Ja generalno ne vidim tinte kao proizvod duže postojanosti od tečnog karmina. Ukoliko volite tinte, ili želite da probate neku po prvi put, ove imaju moju toplu preporuku !. 🙂 Tintu možete poručiti preko sajta TesterKorea a cena joj je 16.150 krw + poštarina  ( visina poštarine zavisi od težine paketa ).

That’s it for my long review, hope you liked it ! 🙂

“Nice Shading ” contour powder by PONY EFFECT Review

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hello ! 😊

Sorry for making such a big pause between posts this month, I had a lot of things going on, also as you can see – I have my own website now! I’m super excited, this is actually going to be my first post as Belgradepixie.com !

Zdravo ! 😊

Izvinjavam se na ovako dugoj pauzi u pisanju, prosto su bile takve okolnosti, nadam se da me razumete .😊 Za mene je ovaj blog pre svega jedan lep hobi, ali ću se zaista u narednom periodu potruditi da mu se više posvetim. Kao što vidite, april je sa sobom doneo i jednu bitnu promenu – BelgradePixie sada ima sopstveni domen !

OK, enough with the boring part, let’s get started with my first Pony review – We’re starting off with the first item, in this case, the Pony Effect “Nice shading” Contour powder.

Now, there won’t be an intro regarding Pony Effect, since I wrote a separate post about them, so for detailed info about this brand, its creator and her makeup technique, just click here. 😊

Da ne dužim više, nego da mi polako pređemo na ono što je najbitnije – recenziju Pony Effect ” Nice shading ” proizvoda za konturisanje u kamenu !.

Samo mala napomena – ovaj post nema uvodni pasus o kozmetici Pony Effect, tako da, ukoliko želite da saznate nešto više o samom brendu i šminkerki koja stoji iza same linije, kliknite ovde.

As always, I’ve divided this review into several sections, so you can skip the things you’re not interested to read about :

Kao i uvek, recenziju sam razdelila na nekoliko sekcija, ovako možete preskočiti one delove teksta koji vas ne zanimaju :

Packaging / Ambalaža

The product comes in a small two-toned, navy blue/rose gold cardboard box. The design is very sleek and elegant, I must say, I loove it !. The contouring powder comes in a sturdy plastic case, also navy blue, with a magnetic, 180° opening. The upper lid has a transparent middle part with the Pony Effect logo in rose gold. Comes with no mirror or applicator, which is fine by me. You get 3 gr of product, with everything made in Korea by Memebox Inc.

Proizvod dolazi u maloj dvobojnoj teget-roze zlatnoj kartonskoj kutiji sa logom Pony Effect. Moram priznati da mi se pakovanje jako dopada, vrlo je elegantno i vizuelno efektno, proizvod na prvi pogled čak deluje luksuznije nego što zaista jeste. Zaista su se potrudili oko dizajna. Pudrijera samog proizvoda je plastična, takođe teget boje sa magnetnim otvaranjem do 180°. Gornja strana je po sredini prozirna, tako da u ovom slučaju ne dobijate ogledalce, a ni one bespotrebne aplikatore, što je meni skroz oke ( to kod mene ionako odmah završi u kanti sa ambalažom ). Dobijate 3 gr proizvoda prozvedenog u Koreji od strane kompanije Memebox .

About the product / O samom proizvodu

So, this is a pressed contouring powder. I got mine in the shade Crony. This shade is described as a – cool-toned medium brown for light to medium skin / for deeper, more olive skin tones ?? (the description on two different sites) . Now, when I look at the other shades, this would be the darkest one. I actually ordered the darkest shade on purpose, since I wasn’t quite sure how light/dark Korean powders are in general, compared to my light to medium skin tone. Koreans have lighter complexions, compared to most Europeans ( you can see that with their quite small foundation color range – usually only 3 shades). The powder is available in two more shades : Behind Story & Divine Work.

Ovo je u osnovi presovana senka za konturisanje/senčenje ( zaista ne znam kako bih vam ovo drugačije prevela na srpskom 😬😬 ). Kako sam naručivala proizvod putem interneta, odlučila sam se za nijansu Crony, koja je opisana kao srednje braon nijansa sa hladnim podtonom za svetliji – srednji ten / za tamniji maslinasti ten?? ( sa dva različita sajta su opisi ). Naručila sam zapravo nijansu koja mi se učinila najtamnijom, s obzirom da generalno nisam bila sigurna koliko su korejski proizvodi za konturisanje tamni tj. svetli. Korejci su poznati po izrazito svetloj puti, za razliku od većine Evropljana ( to se pogotovu primećuje kada pogledate njihov raspon nijansi pudera ). Senka je dostupna u još 2 nijanse : Behind Story i Divine Work .

Application & impressions / Nanošenje i utisci

The powder has a nice satin like texture, you can really feel it under your fingertips, the product was very finely mild. This shade is perfect for me, doesn’t look too warm on my skin (isn’t orange at all) nor does it appear grayish, just a perfect cool toned brown for sculpting your face. Goes on smoothly, doesn’t look patchy and it’s pretty pigmented, so I advise you to use a light hand since the intensity is easily buildable . Great staying power, even without setting spray on top. Also, although you can see some gold flex in this picture, the product goes on completely mat on the skin.

Tekstura proizvoda je zaista divna, vrlo svilenkasta, tačno se oseća pod prstima koliko je prah fino samleven. Sama nijansa kontura je bila pun pogodak za mene. Kontur ne deluje nimalo narandžast na mom tenu a ne deluje ni pepeljasto sivo. Zaista savršena braon hladnog podtona nijansa za konturisanje lica. Moram reći da sam iznenađena i samom pigmentacijom proizvoda, s obzirom da je opšte poznato koliko Korejci ne stavljaju toliko akcenat na pigmentaciju. Intenzitet boje se lako nadograđuje, kontur nimalo ne deluje ” prljavo” a zadovoljna sam i sa samom postojanošću na koži tokom dana. Inače – iako se na slici vide sitne zlatne čestice ( mada mi je wp kompresovao sliku ), na koži je skroz mat.

Functionality & Usability / Funkcionalnost & upotrebljivost

This powder is a great contouring/shading product. You can use it to sculpt your face and give it the necessary dimension, also to contour your nose or even as an eyeshadow, as a nice everyday color all over the lid, or just to create some depth in the crease. Very versatile and easy to use, also travel friendly as it can be used as a 2in1 product.

Ovaj kontur je zaista divan proizvod za konturisanje/senčenje. Možete ga znači koristiti za konturisanje lica, kako biste dobili neophodnu dimenziju u predelu jagodičnih kostiju, čela, vilice i nosa, ali je ujedno odlična i za senčenje u predelu pregiba oka, kako biste dobili efekat dubine.

When it comes to its application, I use the M.A.C 168 contour brush to apply it. Now, I realize that this is a brush on the pricier side, so a good alternative that I have to recommend is the Artdeco Blusher brush. Do keep in mind that this brush has less bristle density and it’s a bit wider – the ferrule is more pinched, so it covers a bigger surface than the M.A.C one. But, for beginners and with products of stronger pigmentation, this is a great alternative at a lower price (of course, you can use whatever brush you’d like, nowadays you can find a lot of good, affordable, brushes).

Što se tiče samog nanošenja, za ovaj kontur proizvod koristim M.A.C četkicu za konturisanje, broj 168. Svesna sam da je ovo jedna od skupljih četkica na tržištu i da je ne može svako sebi priuštiti, zato od postojećih četkica koje posedujem kao dobru alternativu mogu da vam preporučim ArtDeco četkicu za rumenilo. U osnovi obe četkice imaju istu svrhu, oblik i vrstu dlake ( kozja ). Jedino imajte na umu da je gustina dlake kod ArtDeco manja a i da je sama cev četkice više priklještena – time je četkica šira i prekriva veću površinu. Generalno za proizvode jače pigmentacije kao i za početnike kada je u pitanju šminkanje, ovo je po meni dobra alternativa.

Ingredients / Sastav

As you know, South Korea is well-known for their skin care industry. Everyone and their grandma is skin obsessed there. 😁 Which is a good thing, don’t get me wrong. So, when it comes to makeup, it’s also very important for them to have the necessary skin care benefits implemented in their makeup as well. This brand and their products are no exception to that rule. The contouring powder is botanical-infused with several plant extracts, including Arnica Montana flower extract, Yarrow extract, Artemisia Absinthium extract, Achillea Millefolium extract and Gentiana Lutea Root extract ( soothing & nourishing properties).

Kao što već znate, Južna Koreja je poznata po svojoj opsednutosti kožom. Njihova industrija se smatra jednom od najnaprednijih kada su u pitanju sastojci proizvoda i sama tehnologija izrade preparativne kozmetike. Isti je slučaj naravno i sa njihovom dekorativnom kozmetikom tj. šminkom. Dobar je primer upravo ovaj kompatni kontur koji u sebi sadrži ekstrakt cveta Moravke, Hajdučice, Belog Pelena i korena Žute Lincure ( biljke koje neguju i umiruju upale kože ).

Their products are also free from ingredients like : dye, formaldehyde, mineral oil, polyethylene glycol a.k.a PEG, propylene glycol, parabens, coal tar, alcohol, sulfates, sodium lauryl sulfate a.k.a SLS, triclosan, formaldehyde-releasers, phthalates, methylisothiazolinone a.k.a MIT.

Proizvod takođe ne sadrži : boje, formaldehid, mineralno ulje, polietilen glikol, propilen glikol, parabene, katran, alkohol, sulfate, sodium lauril sulfat, triklosan, ftalate, metilizotiazolinon.

This is also a cruelty-free makeup brand.

Ovo je ujedno I brend koji ne testira na životinjama.

Any remarks ? / Zamerke ?

There’s some kick-up in the pan as you swirl your brush , but I don’t see that as a big flaw. I only wish there were more shades, for people with darker complexions, since the product is so nice. Now, some people on Youtube complain that the powder is too small ( regarding the amount of product you get ). I personally don’t see an issue, on one side, I don’t like huge pans ( takes you forever to use it all up) and on the other, when you look at other contouring powders, e.g. the Anastasia’s contour kit refills, you get 0,11 oz (3,25 gr) of product for 14 bucks ( and this is just a refill pan, no packaging included ). Pony Effect contour powder is 3 gr of product for the retail price of around 15 bucks ( here you’re paying for the product + packaging ). So, it’s reasonably priced in my opinion.

Kontur se malo kruni prilikom upotrebe četkice, ali meni to toliko ne smeta jer je i očekivano donekle kada sa ovako finim presovanim prahom, pogotovu kada koristite četku veće gustine. Primetila sam da su se pojedinci na Youtube-u žalili da je kontur dosta mali. Ja lično ne volim ni velike bronzere ni velike palete za konturisanje, tada vam treba 100 godina da potrošite proizvod do kraja. Takođe, kada pogledate, kod dopune za kontur paletu Anastazije, dobijate 3,25 grama proizvoda za 14 $ ( pritom nema kompaktno pakovanje). Kod Pony Effect dobijate 3 gr proizvoda za 15 $ ( ovde plaćate proizvod + ambalažu ). Generalno smatram da je oke cena.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Do I recommend? / Da li preporučujem ?

Yep! Most definitely! Good quality product, (not just a pretty packaging), looks wonderful on warm skin tones, great color payoff, long wearing… Can’t find a reason not to recommend it. It’s a staple in my makeup bag right now ! Just – Lovin it ! 🤗 So, If you want to try something signed by Pony, most definitely pick this up, you won’t regret it! I ordered mine via TesterKorea for the price of 15.200 krw + shipping ( this varies based on the parcel’s weight ).

Apsolutno ! Smatram da je kontur dobrog kvaliteta, ne samo lepo dizajnirano pakovanje, divno izgleda na koži toplog podtona, dobro pigmentovan, postojan… Zaista ne mogu da mu nađem neku bitnu manu zbog kojeg vam ga na bih preporučila. Trenutno je moj omiljeni proizvod za konturisanje… Tako da, ukoliko želite da probate nešto sa potpisom Pony, ovaj proizvod ima moju toplu preporuku ! Proizvod možete naručiti putem sajta TesterKorea po ceni od 15.200 krw + poštarina ( visina poštarine zavisi od težine paketa ).

Toliko od moje prve Pony recenzije !

That’s it for my first Pony review ! Hope you liked it !

” PONY EFFECT ” by PONY – Makeup & Artistry

 

Since a lot of you guys probably isn’t that familiar with the South Korean beauty scene, I’ve decided to write an introductory post regarding Pony Effect. This way you’ll be able to learn some interesting things about the brand and also its creator (followed by some product reviews from the makeup line in my upcoming posts). 😊

The first Holiday Collection called ” That Girl”, november 2015/Photo by Pony Effect  via Pony Effect’s Official FB Page

 

Pony Effect is a makeup brand launched in winter of 2015 with their first holiday collection called „That Girl“. The brand was based on a previously very successful collaboration between Memebox – one of the fastest growing beauty companies in S. Korea, and one of the most sought out for Korean self-taught makeup artists at the moment named Park Hye-Min, more commonly known by her highschool nickname as – Pony.

Pony has actually been in the beauty industry for quite some time. She started off almost 10 years ago, as an artistic graphic designer with a beauty blog as a hobby in her spare time. As the popularity of her blog started to rise, getting recognition for her knowledge about makeup and with the undeniable talent when it comes to her makeup skills, she decided to quit her office job and pursue her lifelong passion as a profession.

Throughout the years, she has built a name for herself, working as a celebrity makeup artist, while writing several bestseller makeup books in the process . With international fame, offers came left and right, and by now, she can proudly say that she has worked with numerous brands in the industry, ranging from Etude House & Memebox, to the renowed pioneers as Dior and Shu Uemura . Despite closing down her blog, she is still very active on social media, sharing her skills and tips through beautiful makeup tutorials on her YouTube channel, called Pony Makeup (with over 2.4 million subscribers & counting) .

As someone who has followed her work for a while now, I also wanted to write about some of the focal points when it comes to her work and approach to makeup.

If I would have to describe her work in one sentence, it would be „ Light handed strokes and subtleness“ – Now, what does this mean?. First of all, like with most Asian makeup artists, strong contouring, heavy baking & highlighting, or knife sharp eyebrows – None of these ( mostly well-known drag techniques) are present in her work. You won’t see anything overemphasized  or too heavy when it comes to her makeup style.

Just as a painter, she has a keen eye for colors, light and angles, she works on accentuating your facial features, without making you look unrecognizable. Her looks are very natural, fresh and youthful, filled with mostly pastel and earthy tones (I would describe some of her looks even as ” fairy ” like ), that can easily be transformed into a more dramatic, yet not overpowering nighttime makeup looks. She applies makeup with such an incredible ease and delicacy, basing everything on a simple mantra – Less is more. In her tutorials, she always tries to make her makeup looks as simple as possible for you to recreate them at home (You can also try her incredible celebrity transformations 😁 ).

When it comes to the products that she uses for her looks, you can see a huge variety, a lot of Asian but also European and American makeup brands, in accordance and respect to her international fan base, always mixing drugstore and high-end products. This way she shows you that you don’t necesarilly need only expensive makeup to look your very best, and it’s easier for people in different parts of the world to recreate her looks by using brands that are not only more affordable, but also more accessible. She also doesn’t empose her own makeup products in the tutorials ( like some other beauty gurus), which I also respect a lot ( Pony Effect as a brand, has a separate YouTube channel ).

Her makeup brand is sleek, covers all the essentials you need in your makeup bag, with a pop of more boldly colors and shades, for when you feel more adventurous. Prices are I’d say mid range, but as for what I’ve tried so far – totally worth it ( for more about the products I’ve tried, you’ll have to wait for my next post 😉 ).

In general, when looking at her work, her makeup channel and website, together with all of her previous campaigns & collections, I can say that I really love her sense for aesthetics and the color combos in her work (btw, she loves purple like me 😁 ). Overall, I find her as a fantastic makeup artist and a great representative of the ever so popular S. Korean pop culture.

What more can I say ? – In my opinion, sky’s the limit for this girl, and I’m happy to continue watching her grow as an artist. 😊

Hope you liked my post ! 😊

Enjoy your week guys!
