You Can Now Get Your Hands On Pony Effect Makeup In Singapore

21 Jun 2018 by Chew Hui Ling

To say that Pony is accomplished is an understatement. From girl-next-door ulzzang, to bona fide YouTube sensation, to star makeup artist for the one and only CL, the K-beauty guru has an influence that spans far and beyond her combined 9 million-strong following on YouTube and Instagram. Apart from being a social media force, the 26-year-old has also built her very own makeup empire by the name of Pony Effect.

Despite its popularity, overseas fans found it hard to get their hands on Pony Effect products as it’s largely based in South Korea, although you can still find a selection of products on certain online sites such as Gmarket, Qoo10 and Lazada. But we’ve got good news: Pony Effect has finally landed on our shores today (21 June) and you can get your hands on it at none other than your nearby Watsons store!

To prep you for your upcoming Pony Effect haul, scroll through the gallery to see what are some of the products you can start stocking up on.

Pony Effect is now available at Watsons Bugis Junction and www.watsons.com.sg, and will be launching at Watsons ION Orchard, Watsons NEX, and Watsons JEM from July 2018.

Ever woken up to the horror of an angry zit in the morning? The worst thing is, they always seem to appear right before an important event – think a job interview where you need to look all prim and proper. As tempting as it is to pop those nasties, you’re only risking an infection that could jeopardise your chances of leaving a good impression on your potential employer. It’s stressful having to deal with breakouts before an interview, but this all-in-one solution will help to combat breakouts effectively before your big day.

Before acne rears its ugly head, fix it fast with the ZNIQUE Acne Serum. This revolutionary solution is clinically proven to get rid of skin inflammation-causing bacteria in as little as two hours. And you have the five-star guarantee of its effectiveness by leading German research institute Dermatest, so you know you’re getting the good stuff. 

Forget about the traditional three-step acne treatment method: this multi-purpose wonder does it all – from calming inflammation to soothing irritation to reducing redness, all while acting as a barrier to protect your skin against external aggressions. Don’t just take it from us: check out these reviews!

ZNIQUE Acne Serum

Unlike the typical over-the-counter treatments that contain Benzoyl Peroxide, Salicylic Acid and Sulphur, it’s made with natural ingredients such as chamoile flower and sage leaf extracts, which are specifically selected for their unique properties that help to reduce acne.  The result is a superbly gentle formula that doesn’t dry you out, which makes it great for even people with sensitive skin.

Now, you’ll feel fresh, clear and ready to take on the day!

This post is brought to you by ZNIQUE.

The ZNIQUE Acne Serum is retailing at $29.90, available at all Nishino Pharmacies (Shaw House, Takashimaya, Westgate and Liang Court) and online at www.zniquesg.com.


6 New Cushion Compacts To Add To Your Beauty Routine

31 May 2018 by Chew Hui Ling

Getting that coveted K-glow is just a puff away with these cushion compacts! Whether you’re going for a dewy look or a matte finish, we’ve got you literally covered with a few of our favourite cushion makeup products in the market right now.



The cult makeup brand’s foundation game is already hard to beat, and even more so now that it has expanded its cushion range. Boasting 12 hours of breathable coverage, this soft- matte formula is perfect for those who prefer a more subtle velvety finish that feels comfortable on your skin. What’s more, it comes packed with organic and mineral UV filters that work in tandem to protect you from harmful rays. What’s not to rave about it?



Who doesn’t like collecting pretty makeup? It’s impossible to resist the springtime-worthy packaging of this sakura-infused beauty, which is fittingly formulated with petal skin cushion technology to leave you feeling and looking fresh like flower petals. Its unique liquid-to-powder formula blends like a dream and dries to a matte finish that doesn’t dry you out, thanks to the ingredient of deep sea water which helps to keep your skin hydrated.



One layer of this long-wearing formula is all you need to guarantee complete, flawless coverage up to 24 hours. Sounds too good to be true? We thought so too, but it really works. You don’t have to worry about your foundation creasing or caking up midday either, as it comes infused with water drop serum to deliver essential moisture to skin. In fact, it’s so hydrating that you can even see water droplets seeping through the puff when you press onto the metal plate!



For those with oily or acne- prone skin, it can be hard to find a good foundation that doesn’t melt off after a few hours. Look no further than this innovative cushion, which is specially formulated to cool down your skin’s temperate by 3°C – all while keeping shine at bay. The best part? While other mattifying products tend to feel caked- on, this one is anything but heavy and doesn’t clog up your pores at all.



What’s better than one cushion compact? Two-in-one, that’s what! With this double-duty trooper, you can save major space in your makeup pouch by packing in two items – Any Balm Blur, Any Balm Hydro-Radiant, Any Balm Concealer or Any Balm Cheek ($9.90 each) – into one compact case. What’s great about this dual- function concept is that you can easily switch out the products needed for the day and touch up effortlessly on the go. How convenient is that?



A concealer and cushion in one sleek product, this multitasking wonder provides medium to full coverage that you can easily build up with the layering puff – which allows you to achieve a matte finish with the velvet puff, or a naturally radiant glow with the air puff. Yet no matter how much you pile on, it’s amazing how this stuff will always look like skin. Talk about ‘My Skin But Better’!
