Hate to be the enabler here, but a whole pile of Tony Moly has just launched onto Selfridges – looks like they’re attempting to own the Tony Moly space in the UK (I am sure there are more brands to come). But, the products that won me over to the Tony Moly brand are these Tony Moly Petite Bunny Gloss Balms – really, they’re testament to what a pair of bunny ears on a gloss can do to alter your perception of what is quite an ordinary (but very decent) product.
I’m so happy to see ‘kawaii’ make-up having a real presence in the UK – while Japan and Korea are famed for their skin care, there are some beautiful make-up brands too. The thing to know is that just because something looks ‘cute’ doesn’t mean it isn’t a very good product inside. That’s the difference between cultures: cute and quirky doesn’t mean cheap and cheerful. I did find a cream called ‘Donkey Steam’ in TK Maxx the other day – very cute donkey but no! Bunnies, yes.
Anyway, they’re £8 each and if you’re already organised and keeping an eye out for stocking fillers, these are spot on. They’re HERE (already selling out).
