Hello everyone! Sorry I’ve been AWOL for awhile. Work has hijacked my life for the past few weeks. I’m glad to surface for a breather today 🙂
Today, I’m back to review a couple of petite bunny gloss/ lip balms by Tony Moly. Tony Moly is a Korean drugstore brand that’s fairly popular in Korea (and rest of the K-Beauty world!) for its cute packaging, affordability and a good product range. You can order Tony Moly from many online sources. They’re even available in Urban Outfitters US.
I must admit I was drawn to its cute little bunny packaging in pen form. Look at those cute but cheeky faces on the lid with the little bunny ears! You just cannot fault its cute design! The pen shape is compact and makes it easy to apply with. It is light and travel-friendly product.
There are 6 flavours in the original Gloss Bar range, plus 3 new neon colours added to the line. The scent is different on each one depending on its flavour! My #4 Juicy Cherry does smell like cherry-scented and the #8 Neon Red has a sweet but fainter strawberry scent. It’s not an overpowering scent at all.
#4 Juicy Cherry has slightly more pigment than #9 Neon Red. I find Neon Red not at all Neon nor Red!
These are essentially tinted lip balms. They do deliver hydration to the lips while providing a tint of colour.
The colour does transfer and doesn’t last too long. So I foresee finishing these balms pretty quickly! As I find myself reapplying for the colour as well as the much needed hydration.
The gloss feels very light on the lips, and more like a lip balm which is soft and creamy.
