It’s been a short while since I last got myself stuck into a new Moonshot collection (and, to be honest, I have no doubt that they’ve slowed down a bit since the YG Entertainment controversies in Korea) but their new release caught my eye immediately. I actually got an email from StyleKorean about this, since they launched the collection simultaneously in Korea, and was basically obsessed.

With the initial launch, they released the rêve de Paris Collection in a limited edition set. This is what they sent over to me, which includes the palette, one of the lipsticks and a Moonshot branded tote bag. Whilst this is no longer available – because it sold out like hot cakes – the entire range is available individually on the StyleKorean website.

The rêve de Paris Eyeshadow Palette is selling for USD$33 and the Stick Extreme Pro lipsticks are selling for USD$22 each – but definitely get in before the ones you want are sold out. Before you hop onto the StyleKorean website though, let’s get into this review!

Dear Santa: Christmas Wishlist (Althea)

Althea Angels Christmas Wishlist

This post is sponsored by Althea but all chosen products and opinions expressed are my own. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

So we are at a point where Christmas is really close now and I have yet to really put together a list of things I want – partly because I don’t receive Christmas presents anyway (I’m an adult apparently) and also because I generally buy myself things I want rather than waiting for others to spoil me.

That all being said, I was approached by Althea to put together a short list of 10 things that would be on my Christmas Wishlist and, especially since I have been a bit absent from the k-beauty scene lately, this wasn’t hard to put together at all! There have been a bunch of super exciting releases and holiday packs that I’d missed – and now that means I need to get them.

So, click on to check out everything on my Althea Christmas Wishlist and, if you want to check them out – definitely do so! They carry a great range and also have their own brand (from which I highly recommend their Petal Velvet Powder and Petal Velvet Sunaway)

Review: Micro Settingfit Cushion (Moonshot)

StyleKorean Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion Kbeauty Review

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

I used to have a really big hoarding issue with cushions and, while my collection is still rather substantial, I feel like I haven’t been reviewing them as much lately (only one so far this year). However, when I saw this new release (the Micro Settingfit Cushion) from Moonshot come up as a pre-order on the StyleKorean website, I was really keen to try it. Their Microfit Cushion is one that I really adore and use often for touch ups, and I’ve been a fan of their brand since I first came across them. This is advertised with BlackPink’s Lisa as the ‘face’ of the product (and is called the Lisa Cushion, just like the Microfit cushion was GD) and was initially available for pre-order on StyleKorean.

The Micro Settingfit Cushion is now available for purchase on the website for USD$22.99, discounted from the full price of USD$33.60 and is available in two shades – 101 (Ivory) and 201 (Beige). I got the lighter shade, as I typically wear a shade 21 in most Korean cushions, but from my experience with the other Moonshot cushion, I think that the 201 would have been the most natural fit actually. However, I usually like to use a brighter tone anyway.

So, if you’re interested in buying this product, check out the StyleKorean website but otherwise, here’s my review!

Review: Cream Paint (Moonshot)

Moonshot Cream Paint Kbeauty Review

I bought this product with my own money from the official store. However, this post also contains affiliate links to StyleKorean as an alternative shopping recommendation. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

It’s a bit embarrassing to admit that I was originally so crazy about Moonshot because it was a brand established by YG Entertainment and, even now, they primarily use their own artists and models to promote their products. After trying out their products though, I have found that they have a strength in putting out very interesting and unique products – whether it is their Jelly Pots (which I love), the unique bullet of their lipsticks and now their Cream Paint.

When I was in Korea, I popped into their pop-up store in Edae and grabbed a few products to try out – more of their Jelly Pots and some of their lip and eye crayons (which I’ll be talking about and reviewing later on) and I ended up buying enough that I was gifted a branded water bottle – which is really cute, by the way – and also one of the Cream Paint lip products! I was interested in these before but I ended up also hearing some negative reviews, so I was thinking that I would give these a pass. However, since this was a free gift, I just quickly picked out a colour that I was interested in and thought I would get my own thoughts on the product.

So I’ve tested this out and got some negatives and positions about the product – it is definitely not for everyone, but I think that some people could really love this! If you’re after something hydrating, creamy and wearable, then this is definitely for you. Read on for my thoughts.

Review: Microfit Cushion (Moonshot)

Stylekorean Review Moonshot Microfit Cushion

This product was sent to me by StyleKorean for review purposes. I was not paid for this post but please note that affiliate links are used on my blog. These go towards supporting Oh My Stellar and future content.

When I first stepped into the Moonshot store over in Apgujeong, I felt like I had stepped into my wildest dreams. The brand is a sub-brand of YG Entertainment and, similar to their other fashion label and the overall style of the company, they’re all about bold colours, versatility and being trend forward. In a beauty industry that that sometimes be all about blending in and being ‘pretty’, this sort of thinking is really welcome and I always love brands like this!

In the past, I’ve tried out their jelly pots (which are a multi-purpose product that I love) and their lipsticks (which are also super uniquely packaged and well formulated). The other product that I did try in store but hadn’t gotten my hands on yet was the Microfit Cushion, so when I found out that StyleKorean was stocking the brand, I had to try it! It’s been a hard time trying to get Moonshot products online without having to say something exorbitant, so it was really exciting when I saw the brand amongst the new line ups. Hopefully, their range expands and we get to see more and more of it online because Moonshot is one of the few ‘kpop’ created brands that I actually adore.

This product is currently selling in a pack (which includes the cushion and an extra refill) for USD$33.64 on StyleKorean, so pop over there to check it out and read on for my full review!

Review: Jellypot (Moonshot)

Moonshot Jellypot Eyeshadow Review

It honestly kills me that it’s so difficult to get Moonshot products outside of Korea. Ever since the brand’s launch in Korea, I had been eying their products is absolute envy and the main thing that I’d wanted to get my hands on were the jellypots! I saw a photo of Lee Sung Kyung wearing the purple shade and, from that moment on, it was an epic journey to get my hands on them.

Luckily for me though, I have a great friend who puts up with these sometimes ridiculous obsessions with me so, me and Sophia got ourselves quite lost in Apgujeong when we went looking for their flagship store. Eventually though (and braving that little bit of rain) we found it and I felt like I was in heaven. I love the pigmentations of their products, I love the quality, service and… as a kpop fan, the blasting of Big Bang’s MADE album definitely made the experience. Sorry.

Anyway! So at Moonshoot, I was assisted by one of their great make up artists who helped me test out the products and showed me different applications as well as recommending products and colours that suited my skin tone. For the jelly pots, I ended up going with that purple that I was addicted to, a metallic black which I don’t use much of but liked to use for a night-time look, as well as a rose-gold like colour. The last one I actually received for free as a gift (I bought so much, I can’t even) and was recommended to me by the artist who said that it is one of their most popular shades – as well as a ‘Dara’s recommendation’ – and where Sandara goes, I follow.

Well, let’s get right into this review!
