I have to admit, and this won’t be news to anyone, but I have a serious weakness for packaging. I love girly, princess-y designs but I also really love plain ole cute. Luckily for me, the Asian beauty industry has got my back. Today’s post is a ton of cute in one slim tube: the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar.
I’ve actually been wanting one of these for a long time, but despite my weakness for packaging, I held off. The reason being that overly cute stuff kinda sets off an alarm in my head — this little klaxon that says, “It’s a gimmick!” :oh: Too cute to be true, basically.
I thought that this inexpensive little bunny balm would just be a disappointment and a waste of a few bucks. Happily for me, I was wrong!
The Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar comes in a slim, twist-up tube with 0.6 oz of product. Each one is capped off with a little bunny head, and they have different expressions. This shade, #6 Juicy Orange, is rather grumpy. There are 9 shades in total, including 3 new(er) shades which are neons.
Tony Moly is a budget Korean brand, and these gloss sticks are very inexpensive. I paid $8 with shipping for mine, but Amazon currently has these for around $5-7 a pop with Prime shipping.
#6 Juicy Orange is, as it sounds, a juicy orange shade. However, it actually leans a bit pinky-coral on me. The coverage is sheer but moderately buildable, and the finish very glossy. I get about 2-4 hours of wear out of it, which is to be expected with its texture.
It’s super comfortable on lips and is actually fairly moisturizing. Obviously it’s not as moisturizing as a dedicated balm, but I could wear this over dry lips and not have issues.
This specific shade is scented like oranges, so I suspect the other shades are scented like their respective shade names (e.g., Strawberry). However, I’m not a huge fan — to me, the scent is a little bit too artificial and kind of smells like cleaning spray. But it’s not a big deal as the scent is light, and you can’t smell it once it’s on. It is unflavored.
I LOVE THIS GLOSS! Seriously, it’s cheap as chips, devastatingly cute and I love the way it wears and looks on. The only downfall I can see is that, because of its balm-like texture and relatively short wear time, you’ll go through this rather quickly. But it’s so cheap, you can just get another! :dance:
I really want to get shades #2 Juicy Grape, #3 Juicy Apple and #5 Juicy Peach next. There is also a neon yellow shade which seems intriguing to me, but I wonder how it looks…
Have you tried the Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Bar? Do you like Tony Moly? I used to think the whole line was too gimmicky to be good, but I’ve liked everything I’ve tried so far!
