PONY PARK in the PH
PONY fans rejoice! The much-anticipated MACxPONY collab has finally dropped locally, and we have the lowdown on just how much South Korea’s beauty guru’s line will cost you if you plan to snag them. The Matte Lip Mousse (P1, 200) is an ‘ethereally-weightless’ liquid lip that comes in nine shades and packs an intense pop of color with the coveted soft-matte finish. For a high-shine lip topper, the Plenty of Pout Plumping Lip Gloss (P1,200) leaves your pout with a radiant shine. Pair these lippies with the gorgeous Eye Shadow X-8 Palette (P3,000) - a combo of ultra-wearable, rosy and neutral shades for easy eye looks. Pony Park also comes with a special edition of the Prep + PrimeFix (P1,350) in StaySealed multi-coloured pearl shimmer. The line officially drops in local MAC boutiques on October 15.
