TONYMOLY CatChu Wink Lipstick in #7 Salmon Wink

October 24, 2012

Hello everyone! Today I'm doing a review on one of my favorite lippies to date, which is from TONYMOLY's Cat's Wink line! For those not familiar with the brand, TONYMOLY is a popular beauty and skin care brand from South Korea that aims to bring forth a whole new beauty experience with top quality yet affordable range of products. The name is a combination of the English word TONY meaning 'stylish', and the Japanese word MOLY meaning 'to package'. If you're a fan of Korean pop culture, then you must have already encountered the brand at least once. Current endorsers of the brand are K-POP girl group T-ARA and Korean actor Song Joong-Ki. The group Brown Eyed Girls also used to be endorsers up until late last year.


Can you believe this super cute packaging?? Look at those tiny ears!! *dies*

One of my gal friends, Angel, who works for TONYMOLY PH, posted a photo of this cute little thing on her Instagram some few months ago. I died when I saw it! As a lover of both cute things and cats, I just had to have it. It's never left my bag since. It's currently my favorite lippie; I've been reaching for it more than any of the other lippies I own. I'm even thinking of getting more colors! But for now, here's a tiny review by yours truly


#7 Salmon Wink is a cute salmon pink color.


Swatched on the back of my hand. To get this color, I had to swipe three times.


On my lips, two swipes. The actual color is a bit hard to get, especially if you're like me with darker lips.
So what I do is use a bit of foundation over my lips, then the lippie over it. Looks nice with clear gloss also!


Full-face photo! This is such a cute, natural color! I don't normally like pink lippies but this kind of pink is okay in my book.
PROS
Super cute packaging!! (Of course this has to be number one; it's pretty much the reason why I decided to buy it, haha!)
The texture is smooth and it glides quite nicely on the lips. It's moisturizing, too!
Leaves a nice stain on the lips. The color lasts way over 6+ hours, even after eating!
Locally available, can be bought at any TONYMOLY branch or booth at SM Department Stores.
There are seven different shades to choose from! This one, Salmon Wink, is perfect for everyday.
Affordable at Php378 (roughly $9).

CONS
The color goes on quite sheer. To get the color that I want, I have to swipe at least three times on my lips.
Other than that, none! :)

OVERALL: ★★★★☆
Four out of five stars. I would've wanted a more pigmented product, but for an everyday lippie this works really well! And it's really cute to pull out of your bag too, when re-applying lipstick. Haha!

Would you recommend this product?
Yes! Especially if you collect anything with cat designs, or if you just really like cats. Actually, check out the whole TONYMOLY Cat's Wink line! They even have pressed powders and mascaras with cat faces on them. Must-have, nya~!!
