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!
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!
