Pony Effect Master Eye Palette Holographic Pastel Review

Hi everyone! I know I’ve been a bit lax with new content but I’ve been working on a lot of things and have been a bit short on cash overall. I’m happy to be back with a new review for the Pony Effect Master Eye Palette in the theme Holographic/Pastel! I’ve been wanting to try some Pony Effect products since the launch (I still have my eyes on the Customizing Lip Palette). For those who don’t know, Pony is a Korean makeup artist. She has done makeup for the likes of Kpop star CL among others! She launched her Pony Effect label in conjunction with Memebox a few years ago. The colors in this palette are subdued with a shimmering twist! They’re unlike most of the colors I normally use and seemed great for Spring and Summer. The shades are supposed to be smooth and double as highlighters. Let’s see how it fared! Continue reading “Pony Effect Master Eye Palette Holographic Pastel Review”

Laneige BB Cushion Medium Review

So I’m not sure why I never reviewed this product before. The Laneige BB Cushion was my very first cushion compact. It is still my everyday go-to for natural base makeup. I decided to spotlight it now because they have recently expanded their shade range from just 3 to 6 colors! Anyone who has looked into Korean foundation or BB creams knows that finding any shades that aren’t extremely light is a struggle! Even as a black woman with comparatively light skin, it has been incredibly difficult; even the darkest shades most Korean brands sell are a bit too light. So I’m so glad that Laneige has expanded their range to suit more skin tones. The Laneige Cushion promises buildable natural coverage that moisturizes while color correcting. I’ll be showing you the wear of the shade Medium. Let’s get to it! Continue reading “Laneige BB Cushion Medium Review”
