Famous Korean brand Tony Moly, with stores across Asia and Australia, has made its landing on Philippine soil. Topmost in this new makeup and skin care line’s agenda is to spark a skin revolution among chic and urban Filipinas.
The ammunition to this revolution? A box-load of stylish products that’s sure to win the day as implied by the brand name, which is a combination of the English word Tony (“stylish”) and the Japanese word Moly (“to box something”).
The key intelligence: not only are these products stylish, but these are also natural, organic, and cruelty-free – all important considerations at this day and age.
(Would really love to try the eye shadow pencils!)
Joining the Revolution
Yesterday, I was lucky enough to stumble upon its press launch at SM Megamall. The store was located very near my favorite restaurant, Jipan. While I was there, I talked to a few sales representatives who were nice enough to tell me about the products and the brand while I browsed through their makeup counters and their skin care products. At the end of it, I was convinced enough to try their best-selling gel eyeliner.
(Who can spot the snow cones?)
As I was on my way out, I was unexpectedly given a goodie bag filled with some of their top products. I almost swooned! 🙂
I opened it as soon as I got back to the office and almost died from all the cuteness! The packaging of the products is adorable! EEP! 😀
Here’s my Back Stage Gel Eyeliner. I tried it out at the store and in all fairness, it didn’t budge throughout the day (except when I rubbed my eyes just now). It’s considerably affordable at PHP498 given the amount of product packaged. I have similar gel eyeliner from Maybelline and that lasted for ages! This comes with a brush on top conveniently stored at the handle.
Meanwhile, here are the products included in my goodie bag:
Part Lover Shine Blusher (PHP378). I’m not sure if it comes in different shades but it’s apparently made from fine pearls that instantly add a touch of color to the cheeks. There’s a cute puff that comes with it, which I find almost criminal to use. I want to preserve its cuteness forever! 😀
Berry Merry Magic Lip Tint (PHP198). It provides the lips with a natural, sheer tint while at the same time keeping it moist and protected from irritation with Vitamin E.
Berry Lovely Girl Petit Powder (PHP348). This oil-absorbing loose powder claims to give the skin a soft and silky texture. It also contains Allantoin, a compound that can be extracted from the Camfrey plant, which helps relieve and soothe skin irritation.
Simpy Style Makeup Eraser (PHP398). This aids in spot correcting / erasing makeup mistakes made during application, e.g. while applying eyeliner. It claims to contain a moisturizing ingredient that leaves the skin fresh and non-greasy after use. Can’t wait to give this one a try! 🙂
Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack (PHP548). This is definitely one of my favorites from the bunch! 😀 I definitely remember seeing containers like this when I was a child. Very, very adorable! This tomato solution mask helps brighten and clear the skin. I shall give this product a go ASAP and let everyone know how it goes.
Pocket Bunny Sleek Mist (PHP448). Last but not the least is this lovely bunny. At first, my friends and I all thought that this was a deodorant or a body spray but it turned out to be a skin care mist for the face. It contains fine and soft moisture particles that exhilarates and bolsters the skin.
I can’t give my own opinions yet about the products since I have yet to use them. Nevertheless, I shall make another post in a few weeks or so talking about my experience with these. Meanwhile, I’m just very excited to be part of this skin revolution. 😉
