REVIEW: Pony Effect Deep & Pure Lip Tints + Swatches

Whenever Pony launches new lip products, it automatically goes to the top of my must-try list and that's partly because lips are one of the things she does best! Her Favorite Fluid Lip Tints currently hold the position of my absolute favorite lip tints of all-time and her Stay Fit Matte Lip Colors have easily become a staple to my makeup routine. 

Pony's latest lip products, the Pony Effect Deep & Pure Lip Tint, is an ultra long-lasting tint that leaves behind a stain that will last all day (no joke) without a need to reapply!







PONY EFFECT DEEP & PURE LIP TINT

Lightweight and never greasy or sticky, the Deep and Pure Lip Tint by Pony Effect splashes your lips with a vibrant hue that brightens up your face. It glides on like silk and hydrates lips with Hyaluronic Acid and nourishing Flower Complex. The result is long lasting, attention-grabbing color you'll always wanna rock.

The Deep & Pure Lip Tints come housed in a dark navy tube packaging with rose-gold coated caps. In the center of each lip tint tube is a colorful lightning bolt that matches the shade of the lip tint inside. I'm usually a huge fan of Pony Effect packaging, but I have a love/hate relationship with these. The rose-gold caps are slightly rounded along the base making it impossible for it to stand up-right. It isn't a biggie, but I prefer to store my lip products standing up rather than laying them down (just a personal preference)!


What I do like about these though is that they come in a squeezable plastic tube, which is durable and also great for squeezing out every last bit of product, so nothing goes to waste! However, a small flaw with the packaging is that some caps don't fit perfectly into the tubes, which can cause some product to seep out. Out of the 10 lip tints, I only have this problem with two of the colors. They're probably not something you want to carry around in your purse (though there's no need for touch-ups anyway)!


Twisting off the shiny cap reveals an attached doe-foot applicator. It's a slanted fuzzy doe-foot applicator that aids the tint in gliding easily across the lips. The applicator works really well with the Deep & Pure Lip Tint formula since the formula is more gel-like and the cushiony doe-foot helps deposit color really gently and evenly.


The formula is like a lightweight watery-gel that's not greasy or sticky. Described as a "moisture ink type," the tint creates a very thin veil of color onto the lip that's still full of color and packs a punch, but almost feels like there's nothing on the lips! All of these shades are full of pigment with amazing color payoff. The tints glide on really well depositing even color, but sadly, these lip tints weren't that moisturizing or hydrating on the lips. 

They're not drying either, but aren't forgiving if you apply them on to dry lips. When applied to dry lips, some colors will bunch up in areas and emphasize dry patches! It's CRUCIAL to apply lip balm before applying the Deep & Pure tints, at least for me! Applying lip balm beforehand makes wearing these lip tints much more comfortable and the color glides on much more easily. As for scent, these products are lightly scented with a fruity cherry candy fragrance that I don't mind at all!

The Deep & Pure Lip Tint comes in 10 vibrant shades ranging mostly from reds, pinks, oranges, and a few berry tones! I was hoping Pony would branch out a bit more with the shade range like she did with the Stay Fit Matte Lip Color, but these hues are pretty similar to one another.

Here are the 10 shades:





#GRACEFUL

#Graceful is a vibrant blue-based red. This shade is one of my favorites as it really makes my teeth appear MUCH whiter than it actually is. The tint applies evenly onto the lips without settling into any fine lines or bunching up in dry areas. Graceful has one of the best formulas out of the 10!




#COLORFUL

#Colorful is a fiery scarlet red with a tinge of orange. It's such a bold and warm-toned hue that really brings a pop to any makeup look or any outfit. The lip tint itself glides on effortlessly and deposits intense pigmentation with just one swipe.




#BEAUTIFUL

#Beautiful is a raspberry pink that's great for the warmer months! It provides the lips with smooth, intense color and goes on very evenly.




#WISHFUL

#Wishful is a strawberry pink with a white, milky base. It's similar to #Beautiful, but is more cool-toned. I love this color, but sadly the formula was hard to work with. The lighter tones tend to have a milky base, which applies unevenly at times. The whiteness sometimes separates creating an unintentional ombre effect, which might not be flattering. It often turns milky towards the inner parts of my lips, but the outer edges remain fine! Dry patches were also very noticeable with this shade.




#YOUTHFUL

#Youthful is a light orange hue which is somewhat reminiscent of an orange creamsicle. It's a lively shade that adds just enough pop, perfect for the warmer season. Youthful has a slightly sheer consistency to it, which made it easier to wear on the lips and not as bold as the other shades. It also has a slightly milky white-base, but wasn't that difficult to work with.



#WONDERFUL

#Wonderful is a bright tangerine orange. If you want a bold color on the lips, but don't want the traditional reds or pinks, I highly recommend this one! I personally love orange hues and this one glides on like a dream.




#DELIGHTFUL 

#Delightful is a muted brick red. If you're not wanting a vibrant, in-your-face color then #Delightful is a great option! This shade was a tad more moisturizing and comfortable on the lips than the rest, but it's also one of the sheerer shades. 




#JOYFUL

#Joyful is a deep berry shade. It has a sheerer consistency than most of the shades, but still applies fairly evenly onto the lips. This particular shade does emphasize dry patches for me, so exfoliation is essential!




#EVENTFUL

#Eventful is a fuchsia pink with a very slight berry tone to it. It has a smooth formula that goes on easily, but applied a bit unevenly onto the lips.




#BLISSFUL

#Blissful is a deep and vibrant rose pink. This particular shade is another personal favorite of mine and has one of the better formulas. It's incredibly vivid with just one coat, and goes on so smoothly! 




Not only do you get crazy intense color with just one swipe, but these babies last all freaking day. I can apply these during the morning and then still have the stain visible on my lips the next day - it literally lasts over 24 hours! If you need a budge and smudge-proof lip product, you've met your match! The initial tint does transfer slightly as you wear it, especially when eating, drinking, or wiping your lips onto a napkin. However, the stain that it leaves behind does not disappear!



The Deep & Pure Lip Tints are best worn all-over the lip. They dry down incredibly quick with crazy staining power, so once you lay these down, it's really really hard to create a suitable gradient lip. I actually wish it wasn't so fast-drying so I could create ombre or gradient lips, but once they're on, THEY'RE ON FOR GOOD.

Compared to the Favorite Fluid Lip Tints, the Deep & Pure Lip Tints are slightly less comfortable/moisturizing on the lips, but pack an immense punch of color! The Favorite Fluid tints offered a more natural and light wash of color whereas the Deep & Pure ones offer vibrant hues with intense pigmentation. 





FINAL THOUGHTS

The Deep & Pure Lip Tints are the longest lasting lip products I have EVER tried! They have the staining ability to stay put all day/night even well onto the next day. Even though these lip tints are tried and true, they're just not my cup of tea. I have a strong love/hate relationship with its long-lasting ability because even though it lasts forever, if you mess up when applying, it's almost impossible to fix without scrubbing your lips over and over again!

The formula itself glides on like a dream, but I found these to be lacking in the hydration department. Don't get me wrong, they weren't drying either, but they didn't offer moisturization or do any favors for my dry lips. I always have to wear these lip tints with a lip balm underneath in order to make it work. I also found these nearly impossible to create gradient lips with since they dried down so freaking quick!

These are pretty decent lip tints, but I personally look for things that offer a lot of hydration and these didn't for me. However, if you're solely looking for a lip tint that won't budge then I'd recommend these because these. do. not. move.

My favorite shades out of the line are: #Graceful, #Beautiful, #Youthful, and #Blissful!
