Moonshot Micro Settingfit Cushion 201 Beige Review:

When I went to Seoul last 2017, I was not as hooked on K-beauty as I am right now. I wasn’t familiar with must-try products except for those offered by road shop brands available in the Philippines like Etude House, Tony Moly, etc. Needless to say, I was really fascinated to see women of different ages (from teens waiting in line for a ride in Everland, ladies on their commute to work, and even grandmothers on the train towards hiking destinations) applying cushion. This made me want to get my hands on this magical compact which seems to be the secret behind the coveted Korean porcelain skin.

The first ever cushion I bought was from Laneige but found it too heavy and dewy for my liking (not at all suitable for the hot and humid weather we have). I ended up just using that one a few times and giving away the refill it came with. This bad experience didn’t discourage me to avoid cushions all together though.

On the contrary, it actually made me want to try out more brands to look for my perfect match. It was last year when an online shopping site had their crazy sale on Moonshot products. All their cushions were sold for only $9.99 which I thought was such a bargain so I grabbed that opportunity to get myself one.

Reading the description of the different kinds of cushions available from the brand, I decided that this Micro Settingfit one is the most ideal for my oily skin since it claims to have a matte finish which my oily skin can benefit from. It didn’t have a refill (unlike their Balm type cushion) which was quite a bummer but I still decided to purchase this one.

By the way, Moonshot is a very new brand for me. The only information I know about it is that it has affiliations with the entertainment company YG. I’m not really a K-pop fan anymore but I believe Black Pink is their current endorser. Who wouldn’t want to achieve Lisa’s perfect skin right?

Anyway, I’ve been using this cushion for months now and I’d like to share my experience and opinions about it. If you’re curious to know if I’ve finally found my perfect cushion, please read until the end. For now, here are some details about the product:

Moonshot Micro Correctfit Cushion SPF 50+ PA+++ 301 Honey Review:

I believe many of us agree that Moonshot got more and more popular lately because they have Lisa of Blackpink as their brand’s face, right? And I will not lie that Lisa is the biggest reason why I purchased this cushion. Aside from that, a pretty packaging, of course, is another thing that had me spend my money for this brand.

However, it’s interesting to try this cushion as it was one of the most hyped products among beauty influencers lately. Apart from the brand ambassador and the packaging, I was curious why this cushion being so popular. Is the quality that good? Or is it just because of Lisa on its commercial? Well, let’s see.

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection Tinted Moisture SPF30 PA ++ Review:

Moonshot is “the YG brand” so it’s no surprise we expect quality from it, a slightly higher price, and satisfaction too. Of course often the models are also from YG, and the one for this product is Lisa! She couldn’t be more appropriate as she (like many of us) has slight pigmentation marks in some spots, and yet she is so pretty. I got this product thinking it was just a makeup base, but it ended up being more than that.

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+ PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review

Moonshot Microfit Cushion SPF50+/PA+++ 301 Natural Beige Review:

Moonshot is a brand I’ve always been interested in due to its chic, sleek and often minimalist aesthetic. If I remember correctly, I first heard of the brand due to its popular Jelly Pots, which were raved about by various beauty bloggers a few years back. However, due to scarcity in local stores (I often prefer to swatch makeup products beforehand) and their products’ often mid-high price tag, I eventually just shrugged the urge off.

However, when a flagship Moonshot store opened up locally and later held a number of products on sale, I decided to give in and ended up getting myself one of their cushions as I was coincidentally running out of base makeup. So, how did the Microfit Cushion – or also known as the “GD/G-Dragon Cushion” hold up in humid climate?

[REVIEW] Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review

Moonshot The First Moon Drawing Gravity 4001 Highlighter Review:

I’ve been travelling quite a bit recently, so I’ve had to really narrow down and select products that are travel-friendly and convenient to use. Highlighters are actually a very versatile product as they can not only be used to give dimension to the high points of the face, but also as an eyeshadow or even as a lip topper to give some much needed glam and glow.

At Moonshot’s flagship store in Myeongdong, Seoul, these chubby sticks — the highlighter, to be specific — caught my eye. Highly pigmented, they had an extremely smooth texture that simply glided onto the back of my hand. The highlighter (shade 4001) had a slight holographic duochrome effect, which is actually quite rare for Korean products, and it ended up being one of the two Moonshot products that I purchased.

Without further ado, let’s take a look at how The First Moon Drawing: Gravity holds up!

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review

Moonshot Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF50+ PA+++ Review:

The summer season in Hong Kong means extreme heat and humidity — not the best conditions for my oily and acne-prone skin. It also makes skincare and makeup application a bit of a challenge — it’s always a race to put my “face” on before I start sweating it off. When I found out that Moonshot was coming out with a primer that claimed to not only make makeup last longer but also provide strong UV protection, I knew I had to give it a go.

I have tried a few Moonshot makeup products in the past and haven’t been disappointed, so I had high hopes for their newly-released Multi Protection UV FIXER SPF 50+ PA+++.

Moonshot Cream Paint Lightfit M212 Pale Leaves Review:

When I went to South Korea for the very first time, this product was undoubtedly #1 on my to-buy list. If you ask me the reason, with no shame I am going to say because it’s endorsed by my favorite Korean girl group which is Blackpink.

Moonshot itself is a Korean cosmetic brand launched back in 2014 by YG Entertainment. So it’s not a relatively new brand since it’s been almost 4 years. But I believe the existence of this brand itself is, sadly, only known to a limited amount of people. I would guess it is because YG isn’t a beauty related company and because the price isn’t really budget friendly – okay the pricing is actually mid-range, but still – so lots was hesitant to buy it without much review yet.

So here I am, doing Moonshot a favor and writing my review on this lip cream I very much adore!
