Memebox x Pony Palette Review and Giveaway!

My Memebox x Pony Eyeshadow Palette has arrived so it's time for a little review!  Shipping was very fast from the USA Memeshop. This is the Shine Easy Glam palette created by Pony in conjunction with Memebox.

Memebox is a Korean beauty retailer that is most famous for it's Memeboxes packed with Korean skincare and beauty products.  They also have an online shop where you can make purchases like this eyeshadow palette!  Now, Memebox is branching out and creating their own line of products, inspired by collaborations with famous brands (like Chosungah) and well-known Korean celebrities.

Pony designed this palette for Memebox.  She is a very well known Korean makeup artist and Youtube star.  You can see her skills on display at her YouTube channel, Pony's Beauty Diary.  She definitely knows her stuff and some of her transformations are unreal!

The Memebox x Pony Eyeshadow Palette has eight colors are separated into two groups of four. There are four matte shadows and four shimmery shadows.  Plus two brushes, which are terrible by the way and I didn't even bother using them.
This palette also has a huge and wonderful mirror which I really appreciated.  It's a nice slim compact that snaps shut, making it very easy to travel with.
The surprise was just how MUCH I loved the "Shine and "Glam" shadows.  I'm usually a matte kind of girl but these four shimmery shadows are gorgeous!  The matte versions are a nice foundation and foil for glorious shine of the shimmery shadows.  I tried swatching these but I just could NOT get my camera to cooperate!
I can tell you right now that the top left is one of my new favorite colors.  It's the Shine Rose Gold and gorgeous!  I love how it blends so well with the Glam Espresso.  I do use a From the Lab eye primer for my eyeshadows since I feel it really makes blending easier and shadows don't crease when I'm using it.
Shine Rose Gold and Shine Gold- Sultry colors with subtle shimmer and shine to create understated elegance.  Rose Gold is subtle and gorgeous, a soft, shimmery neutral and my new favorite.  Shine gold is more pigmented but it's not on my love list.
Glam Espresso and Glam Cocoa- Add color and shine with glittery shadow with beautiful sparkle.  Both of these are on my love list.  Great pigmentation, high shine from the microglitters and both meld beautifully with the Rose Gold.
The "Easy" shadows are a collection of matte, neutrals perfect for very day use as well as for creating a neutral smoky eye.  I can't do a smoky eye but I love neutrals.  It's funny because I thought I would love these the most but ended up swooning over the more shimmery ones.
Easy Base and Easy Shadow- The base blends so well, you can't tell it's there.  It's definitely a highlighter for me.  The Easy Shadow is also very pale and a good base.  When I was trying to get swatching photos, both of these blended so well with my skin that you couldn't even see them in the photo.  The pigmentation for these two isn't high but as bases, they don't need it.  The Easy Base is perfect for the inner corner of your eye and at the brow bone.
Easy Charcoal and Easy Brown- The Charcoal isn't black like charcoal, it's a brown and it's a deep, dark pigmented brown!  Easy Brown is another staple with good pigmentation as well.

Now I'm not saying that this palette is the best palette in the world.  The shadows get crumbs and the pigmentations varies depending on the color.  The included brushes are useless and if you don't like neutrals, this palette obviously isn't for you.  I don't have an extensive palette collection (yet) so this is a welcome addition for me.  I really do like the size and the HUGE mirror!  And of course,  the colors!

If you would like to buy one instead of trying to win one, you can pick one up here at Memebox.  It's only $18.  If you'd like to peruse the addictive Memebox beauty boxes, you can get started with that right here!

  2. I think I'm in love with the "glam" side of this palette. I REALLY want to get this, but I've been holding off on spending the money because I already have quite a few neutral palettes. This one is SO tempting though! That rose gold is giving me LIFE!

    1. It probably would be redundant for you if you have lots of makeup. I did not resist temptation with this one and I really do like it. Plus, I love that the mirror is the entire top of the box. The rose gold is so pretty and I like the Espresso color too. Might be my new favorites... :D

    1. Aww, thank you! Memebox has so many new things coming out, I hope we do see them in Memeboxes. I think it's strange we haven't. It seems like the lip gloss would have been easy to put in a box. Or the new sheet masks should be available soon.
      Jofee is adorable, btw. SO cute! <3
