Beauty Bonanza: Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics

The Korean skincare and beauty industry is making its mark worldwide and it’s exciting to see the industry come to life and embrace edgy colors new products. I attended Beauty Expo Korea a few weeks back to see what was coming to market.

Enter: Unpretty Rapstar Cosmetics.
Unpretty Rapstar is actually a Korean television program focused on finding female Korean rappers. It’s the perfect platform to launch off into cosmetics. Build a following of fans, and start merchandising!
So far I am loving the products I picked up.

Crazy Fit Concealer (7,900won)
This is one of my favorite products. It has quickly become my go-to concealer. I picked up both colors, number 1 is lighter ivory for brightening while.number 2 has a salmon hint great for covering dark circles,  I loved the packaging, too. It is a click pen style (click the button on the package to release product) One click is the perfect amount. It also has a soft, plush tip to stipple to product on your face before blending with a blush or sponge.

Shiny Velvet Fluid Shadow (7,900won)
I usually hate liquid shadow as it always creases. I tested this out and was surprised how quickly it dried. I picked up #2 in Sand Nude Beach, a soft nude shimmer. It is amazing! I don’t prime my lid (other than a bit of concealer), throw this on, let it dry, then contour other colors on top. I’ve never had a crease. I’m impressed and will be going after those jeweled tones soon. (I have a short video of the shimmer in action on my Instagram at 7seasonsstyle)

Crazy Deep Gel Autoliner (7,900won)
I accidentally bought this (I meant to buy the eyebrow pencil) but I’m so glad I did! I don’t wear a lot of eyeliner, but I really like how this applies. The liner also comes with a small brush so you can smudge the color nicely. I purchased #3 Choco Brown.

Because it was a special promotion I also received a sample kit including the Triangle Brow pencil, a gel autoliner in black, and a lip paint. Again, 3 products I really like. The brow pencil has a nice wax texture that keeps them in place and lasts all day. The auto liner is just like the brown one I bought. The lip paint will stain your lips like crazy! I mean, for days. So be careful how you apply it. I had a swatch on my hand for 2 days, even after scrubbing, soaping, scrubbing some more!

Smoked Cherry lip paint, brow pencil, black autogel liner, brown autogel liner

Products I regret not buying: Zero Gram Mascara, which contains biotin, an ingredient that helps your eyelashes grow long and strong (I take biotin supplements for hair so I love seeing this ingredient in mascara.) Contour Kit, a shadow contour kit including a highlight and two contour colors.  All in One Pact, a cushion compact. I’ve never tried a this type of compact but want to give it a whirl.

UNPR (as it is shortened online) is sold in Wonderplace stores. It is a “store in a store” style merchandising. There are a few Wonderplace locations that are popping up around Seoul and other parts of Korea. Check out the locations with cosmetics here or browse wonderplace.co.kr.

Check out my other Korean makeup reviews that I did on Moonshot cosmetics and 3 Concept Eyes. If there are other brands you want me to check out just let me know!

      TESTERKOREA sells UNPR products 🙂 They sell it at pretty much original Korean prices (sometimes a little cheaper) converted directly into USD using the current conversion values 🙂 Check it out here: http://www.testerkorea.com/

      However they don't seem to have all the products

    Hi, I'm here just wondering that do you know if this brand is cruelty-free? I'm super interested in purchasing this from ebay or somewhere 🙂

      I have emailed the company to find out and will let you know what I hear 🙂 I could arrange to have products shipped to you (depending on what you are looking for) but shipping is so expensive. Check the above comment for details and my online store at 7seasonsstyle.storenvy.com
