They make cat-shaped make-up! Tony Moly Catchu Wink line with cat themed items, you understand me. Tony Moly actually put a whole line of cat-shaped packaging along with bunnies and such. Korean companies, you’re beating the Japanese on cheap cute make-up right now. Tony Moly is a Korean brand and I got into it because they have a giant pop-up store in Kabukicho Shinjuku almost across from the MA*RS main store.
In my experience their skincare is great, and their make-up is slowly catching up.
I’m going to be reviewing the Tony Moly CatChu Wink Gloss in 01
A friend of mine was over at my place, used my bathroom and came out with my this lip gloss yelling “I should’ve guessed!”
I know. No shame. Crazy cat ladies… we’re suckers.
The packaging is cute, cheap and sturdy, just plastic with nothing to chip or tarnish.
One standout for me was the applicator. With a thin edge and flat paddle it’s much easier to get a precise application.
Swatched with the Canmake Stay-on Balm Rouge (previously reviewed). You can see it’s extremely shiny and gives a solid coverage. The issue is the edges can set too much product. (See the thicker edges?) The same thick edges can appear on the edges of your lips.
Super high gloss without glitter
Petite size easy for pocket gloss
Doesn’t dry out lips
The application can require clean-up
A pure gloss, no staying power
Does what it says, has cute packaging and a good price. As a gloss it has no staying power. I also realized I’m not too crazy about the candy fake orange color, but I feel that’s personal choice. I bought another item from Tony Moly’s CatChu line so I’ll be reviewing it later. Please check out all my other kawaii make-up reviews here
