Pony effect Favourite Fluid lip tint Review + Swatches

Korean lip tint Pony effectThe K-pop look is all about a fresh, au natural looking face with a nice pop of color on the lips.  Korean lip tints have been all the rage, something that is also seeping through into the Western market.  Of course, Korea’s lip tints come in a lot more variety and formulation then the ones that are offered in the western market.  These lip tints came out in the first or second round of her basic line but they came out with more neutral shades during the third release.  In this review, I’ll be breaking everything down and seeing if these are worth your time and money.  Let’s get started with the review!  Go go! o(^▽^)o

How to use:
You can use this lip tint all over the lips for a full lip look or in a gradation lip by dabbing the color in the center and blending it outwards.  I wouldn’t suggest you using this lip tint on the cheeks since it has a slightly jelly gel texture when set.

Product packaging:
To go along with the rest of Pony effect’s basic line, this lip tint is also in the rose gold packaging.  No, this rose gold isn’t like Apple’s so called rose gold (it’s frinkin’ pink so just call it pink).  This is actually tinted rose gold.  The lid is made of metal while the tube is plastic with  a rose gold tint.

Pony effect favourite fluid lip tintThe bottom has a sticker to indicate the shade name and other information such as manufacture, and expiration date.  I do wish the expiration date didn’t stamp right where the shade name is.  A lot of them, I can’t see the shade name at all.

Pon effect fluid

IMG_4854The logo name on the front is see through which aids in indicating what shade you have.  I do wish they had another way to indicate the shade color since if you were to have these stored in your collection, you wouldn’t be able to tell which tube is which shade.

IMG_4856The lid screws on nicely and is secured by a light snap once you have screwed it all the way.  The applicator wand is clear with a fluffy doe foot applicator which is flexible.  This aids in application since it can move to the shape of your lips.  This really reminds me of YSL’s applicator and a lot of others that are in the market.

IMG_4858Unlike the traditional doe foot applicators, this one is soft and flexible. The rounded edge also helps in making a crisp line.  I personally like this applicator over a brush since this one is a lot more easy to use and isn’t a pain in the ass to try and stick it back into the tube without fraying the bristles.

IMG_4859
Color/ Pigmentation:
To date, Pony effect’s favourite fluid lip tints now have ten shades.  There is a good mixture of bright pinks, neutral pinks, neutrals, oranges and reds.  With me since I have quite pigmented lips, I always have trouble finding light shades that can mute my natural lip color and show up on my lips.  All these tints with one swipe, you get full pigmentation without being overbearing.  With one coat, your lips look like water colors painted over them and with two coats, you get full opacity. All of these shades do not have any shimmers or glitters of any sort and are more of a creamy gloss finish.

IMG_5114Here are my bare lips with no product on except for a bit of clear lip balm.  You can scroll back up to see before and after.

IMG_4877In the tube and swatched on the back of the hand, Simon Pureseems to be a light orange creamsicle.

IMG_5121However, when on the lips, it looks more of a pinky coral shade.

IMG_4871Due respect* is a cool toned beige rose shade and is also one of my favourites.  This is a shades I’d go to when I don’t want to look too made up and is one of those shades that are a no brainer if you don’t know what color you’d want on the lips.

IMG_5130It is pretty much the same on the lips as it is in the tube. This shade can cling onto dry patches of skin, which you can see a bit in the center of my lips, so make sure to exfoliate nicely before applying this color.

IMG_4869Romantic breathis a warm toned strawberry shade which compliments my yellow undertones well.  A lot of pinks looks really gross and Barbie like on me but this one is just right.

IMG_5134On the lips, it doesn’t scream PINK but gives my lips a juicy berry kiss look.

IMG_4867Cherish values* looks similar to Romantic breath but this one is a cool tone raspberry shade.

IMG_5135On the lips, Cherish value again looks quite similar to Romantic breath but the blue undertone comes out more and this is definitely more of a cool toned pink.  Both are very wearable shades but if you wanted one that shows up more on the lips, this one would be the one to get.

IMG_4873Sheer Delight* may look like a pinky shade with a hint of orange in the tube. But…

IMG_5138On the lips, it is leaning more towards the reddish shade with a slight orange undertone.  This reminds me of a cherry tomato when you slice it in half and look at the middle where the seeds are sitting.  Slightly translucent with a hint of orange.

IMG_4875My pleasure* is a warm toned bright orange shade, a shade a lot of Koreans and Asians love.  If you aren’t into wearing bright reds, this color would be the rival choice.

IMG_5142On the lips, it looks quite true to what it looks in the tube, bright orange with a slight reddish undertone.

IMG_4863Go Pitapat* again, looks like it would be the same color as “My pleasure” but this shade is on the cool shade.  This is a cool toned orange shade also with a slight reddish undertone.  If you aren’t into a bright lip but want an orange shade, this would be the choice for you.

IMG_5151Again, this shade also looks true to what it looks like in the tube.

IMG_4865Lavish praise* is definitely one of the most unique shades out of the ten available. This is a cool tone fuchsia color with a strong blue undertone.

IMG_5154On the lips, it looks very true to the tube.  For some reason, this shade reminds me of the purplish veins running through orchids.  If you are in the market for a very unique shade with a gorgeous stain after it has wore off, this is definitely the one to pick up if you can only buy one.

IMG_4861Be agape* looks like it is a dark red in pictures but in person, it is more of a cool toned dark berry shade.  

IMG_5156On the lips, it looks like it is a red from far away but up close, it is definitely a dark berry color.

IMG_4864Fatal allure* is a cool toned red shade.  It isn’t too bright of a red but not muted either, it is right in the middle and it suits my yellow undertone very well.

IMG_4886Here are the colors swatched side by side.

IMG_4887As you can see, Lavish praise and Cherish Values are the two that stains the skin the most.  The other three slightly stains but rubs way in no time.

IMG_4890The two reds in the line looks very similar however Fatal Allure is definitely slightly brighter.  You really don’t need both of them, just pick one that would work with your skintone and preference the best.

IMG_4891Both shades stain the lips really well and the tint does last for a long time.

IMG_4893

IMG_4896The three oranges stain quite well on the lips but is a more subtle stain compared to the other darker shades.

Texture/ Finish:
Unlike the usual Korean lip tints in the market, these ones from Pony effect has a jelly gel like texture.  When you first apply it, you might find it to look slightly streaky and start to panic.  Don’t worry, just let it sit on your lips for about 20 seconds and the streaks will go away.  If not, just dab lightly and the tint will melt into the lips.  These are lightweight on the lips, does not accentuate any cracks on the lips and is moisturizing as well.  The formulation reminds me a lot of YSL glossy stains but Pony’s are not as glossy which I actually like better since I don’t have to be extra self conscious of people thinking I drooled all over my lips and forgot to wipe. These also do not have any stickiness to it. Depending on which shades you choose, these products also stain your lips which is an added bonus.

Coverage:
With one swipe, you get a good amount of color but your natural lip color do peek out a bit.  I actually really like that look since it gives your lips a watercolored effect.  With two coats, you get a vibrant and pigmented lip look.

Lasting power:
If you don’t eat, the glossy effect lasts for about 2 hours before it fades down to just a tint.  If you were to eat, well… gloss gone haha.  However, the tint that is left does not seem to be drying on the lips.  Average wear time is about 6 hours for me before I’d want to reapply because I’m a low maintenance freak like that.

Fragrance?:
If you are sensitive to strong scents, this product may turn you off.  This lip tint has a strong Japanese watermelon candy scent and could be a bother for those of you with a sensitive nose.  After application, the scent goes away so there is no worries there.  Smell-o-scale= 8/10 in terms of the strength of the fragrance.

Pro:
-good variety of shades to choose from
-affordable price
-awesome formulation (moisturizing, pigmented)

Con:
None

Repurchase?:
Yes!

Overall thoughts:
I personally am super picky with my lip products.  On a daily, I usually just stick to lip balms since I can’t be bothered.  I don’t like to wear anything too bright since it would look weird with a bare face.  Ever since I got these in the mail, I’ve been testing them out non stop and I even found myself packing one in my bag for on the go.  I absolutely love the formulation, the different color options to choose from and the nude shades the most.  The current one I’m loving is “due respect” since it is a super muted shade that looks very natural on the lips.  With the affordable price tag, unique jelly gel texture, I am proud to present this product my seal of Awesomeness!  Welcome to the holy grail family.pony tint title 3What do you guys think about this product?  Have you tried any of these guys yet?  Which color is your favourite out of the 10 shades?  Let me know in the comments down below and let’s chit chat shall we?
