Midnight Periwinkle: Metallic Sparkly Eye Look (feat Moonshot Jelly Pot P04)



Korean brand Moonshot has reached Singapore, and one of the star products I highly recommend are their Jelly Pots, metallic gel-cream shadows which set and lock on. 

They're not that different from liquid shadows that you get in squeeze tubes or gloss tubes, but they can be slightly messy because the gels will move round in the pots, so tap the bottom a few times before opening. The range comes in P (pearls) and M (matte) formulas. Also, they can be used as bases, but they're better as shadows in their own. Once they set, they don't grab powders all that well.

Which is fine if you want a more diffused and soft effect, not so good if you expect your bases to intensify your powder shadows.


For this look, I wanted a smoky but still luminous effect, so I paired Jelly Pot P04 (a medium metallic lavender) with Shu Uemura's Beauty Remix Smokey Eye & Cheek Palette in Indigo.


The final effect should be smoky and defined but still soft, with an emphasis on a blend of cloudy colors and sparkly texture.



 Getting the Look:



Tip: to get maximum shine and payoff with the Jelly Pots I recommend letting a thin layer set, then applying a second layer on top.







As for the lips, I used MAC Spice lip pencil and YSL Rouge Volupté Shine No 8.


Final note on the Jelly Pots:

The Jelly Pots last very well once set, and the sheen is beautiful with the P formula, so I totally don't recommend buying these to use as a base for powders. Use them as a shadow shade in their own right and just pair other powders and creams with them to bring out their color and texture.

There cost around SGD$34 at Sephora; not the cheapest compared to what you'd get buying it in Korea, but worth checking out nonetheless.

    1. Thanks Chrissie!
      Yeah it does take awhile to get over the fear of the greens, blues and purples, but I think greens and purples are easier to start with - and actually very flattering on Asian skins! I would go with the dark foresty greens and blues, and softer pale or medium purples like this one!
