Pony (yes I know) is a well know known Korean make up artist who as far as I know, really made a name for herself on YouTube. I really do love watching her tutorials as they are a breath of fresh air – it’s not that she only does natural make up or anything like that but I like her sparing application and how she doesn’t have to cake things on excessively. It’s very Korean!
She has a range out but the prices are inflated so I refuse to pay them. However I couldn’t resist buying her Intense Eye Tint since I love eye creams:
Intense Eye Tint is supposed to be a pigmented cream shadow that sets and is water resistant. I am a big fan of orange golds on the eye so I went for Lucky Charm which I hoped would be quite glittery too (it’s my thing, ok).
Here are all the shades:
First impressions is; the packaging is decent. It comes with a slightly curved brush which looks like it’s more of a lip gloss sponge than an eyeshadow one.
The colour is quite an orangey gold but it’s not that glittery more of a metallic sheet with some particles of glitter.
See how it looks? Yes it is intense in terms of being quite metallic but actually I wouldn’t say it was truly “intense” because once you blend it sheers out in to more of a top coat type finish.
In fact I had to later it a good few times to get the orange ‘colour’ rather than just the shimmer:
Longevity is ok although it did crease on me (not badly but there was some). I like how the wet sheen looks though and it doesn’t flake when dry or travel.
Yet I am really underwhelmed. I paid around £15 pounds for this which is way above what other Korean products cost me and I expected it to be superior and it’s decent at best.
Here is how it looks on my eye layered on top of a brown shadow to increase it’s longevity and prevent creasing.
Hmmmm. Not in love with this, I will definitely keep it and use it but I am not in love with it certainly not for the price. It hasn’t put me off buying more of her range but I will try a lip product next.
