review : Tony Moly CatChu Wink Lipstick in #7 Salmon Wink

October 24, 2012

Hey everyone! Today I'm doing a review on one of my favorite lipsticks to date, which is the Tony Moly CatChu Wink Lipstick in #7 Salmon Wink from TONYMOLY! For those not familiar with the brand, TONYMOLY is a popular Korean beauty and skin care brand. 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. Brown Eyed Girls also used to be endorsers up until late last year!

This lipstick is from TONYMOLY's Cat's Wink line! Can you believe this super cute packaging? Look at those tiny ears!! One of my gal friends, Angel, posted a photo of this cute little thing on her Instagram some few months ago. 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 others I own. I'm even thinking of getting more colors!

Swatched on the back of my hand. It's a very cute salmon pink. 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 lipstick, but this kind of pink is okay in my book.

Super cute packaging!!
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).

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!
