Pony X Memebox Pony Blossom Lipstick Review & Swatches

Hello!

Today I’m going to review the Pony X Memebox Pony Blossom Lipstick in #2 Spring Romance! It can be bought on Memebox’s website for $12.

This is a semi-matte lipstick in a deep burgundy shade. The packaging is just as beautiful as the Shine Easy Glam 3 Palette packaging, with a floral print box! The actual lipstick bullet is in a beautiful package as well; it’s white with both Pony and the shade number on the outside in a holographic finish.

This lipstick glides on easily and has a lightweight feel. It’s not completely opaque on first swipe, but it looks beautiful both sheered out and fully opaque! It lasts around 5 hours on me without eating and drinking, but it does get a little dry around hour 3, so prepping with lip balm is essential!

Other than that this lipstick is awesome! It’s such a beautiful color and has this really nice fruity scent to it!

The Verdict:

I love this lipstick! I particularly like semi-matte and matte finish lipsticks, and this one has a great texture that’s easy to apply! If you are looking to add a deep burgundy shade to your lipstick collection I really recommend this!

Have you tried anything from this collection? Let me know in the comments!

May 2015 Favorites!

Hello everyone!

May has gone by so fast! I have a few favorites to share with you all this month, and some are repeats, haha. Let’s dive into it!

Beauty Favorites:

First up, is the Smashbox Beauty Exposed Eyeshadow Palette! It actually contains four eyeshadows and a highlighter, but I use that as a shadow too, haha.

I’ve had this for a few years and it’s obviously well loved, but I recently started using it more often and this month, I use it most days of the week! These eyeshadows are beautifully smooth and so easy to wear! Unfortunately this was a limited edition palette, but I know Smashbox carries other eyeshadows similar to these.

Next is the Pony X Memebox Shine Easy Glam 3 palette in #01 Brown Bloom!

I got this not too long ago and as you know from my review in my previous post, I’m really loving it! When I’m not wearing the shadows from the Smashbox palette, I’m wearing this! The shadows are just really great quality and really beautiful. There is quite a bit of fallout because they’re so glittery, but I don’t mind, haha.

My last beauty favorite is a repeat from my March favorites, the Pony X Memebox Easy Mix Block Blush in Galaxy Pink!

This is Just a beautiful pale pink blush that’s super natural looking, making it great for everyday! Because of that, I find myself still grabbing for this blush all the time! Definitely a great blush!

Fashion Favorites:

I have two fashion favorites for you this month! Both I got from Abercrombie during a sale, haha. Personally, I only ever buy stuff from Abercrombie when they’re on sale, haha. Too expensive otherwise!

The first item I have for you is this really pretty floral kimono top!

(Obviously I don’t usually wear this with this dress, haha)

It’s super girly and I have been wearing it as much as I can this month! I love it because of the print and it’s a really lightweight material, making it perfect for layering during the summer.

The last item I have for you today is this gray cardigan. I have been wearing this non-stop! I even wore it the day I wrote this, haha.

This is just a perfect long cardigan that goes with almost anything in my wardrobe! It’s super soft and comfy and perfect for my cold office and the cold classrooms! This is probably one of my favorite sweaters of all time, and I’m so glad I picked it up!

That’s it for my favorites! What are some of your favorites from May? Let me know in the comments!
