Tony Moly and Baby Face Review

Friday, 24 May 2013

So about two and a half weeks ago (yeah the shipping was pretty fast) I ordered some cosmetics from f2plus1 on ebay. It's a South Korea based store that sells a LOT (and I mean like 150 pages) or Korean cosmetics.

I ordered: It's skin- Baby Face Petit Blusher in Romantic Red; Tony Moly - Petit Bunny Lip Gloss Stick in Juicy Apple and Tony Moly - Petite Bunny Hello Bunny in Momo Fruity. All in all this came to just over £15 (about $23) pretty cheap right? Free shipping too :D. So all in all good price and quick shipping, so now onto the products.

So like I said, ordered two and a half weeks ago (quick shipping) and today reviewed it in a small sturdy box. It was smaller than I thought, but it was big enough for the items. Not much else I can say about that.
I opened the box to find my items wrapped in bubble wrap (which I've since popped) and at the bottom there were some free samples. Very happy Izzy. Now onto the products

Here are all the products packaged. They're honestly adorable.



So the first product is the "It's skin - Baby Face, Petite blush in Romantic Red" I chose this colour because it was the darkest. Bear in mind if ordering on f2plus1  that the colour in the main picture isn't the colour you are buying, check the swatches below. I almost bought "Lavender" which is cool but I didn't really want purple blush then, so just check what you're buying.

So this is what it looks like opened, it looks redder to me in real life than this picture. This is also adroable with a proper powder puff! And the baby face logo in the blush ^__^. This cost me £4.64 with free postage.

So this is the blusher on my hand, I used about 3 dabs?puffs? of blush here and it's not as strong as I thought it would be. Slightly sparky which you can't really see here.

This is it on my face, you can't really see the sparklyness here and although it seems subtle you can definitely see a difference from the with and without. I think it does seem a little stronger in real life and I definitely don't regret buying it. Although the colour fades it stays on for a long time, I've had it on for more than 4 hours now and there's still a good tint to it.
So Overall:
  • Good colour
  • Not too strong, but still noticeable
  • Cute packaging (I mean this deosn't really enhance the product, it's just nice)
  • Colour lasts a long time
  • Well worth buying.
I don't think I'm allergic to this, it's hard to tell. And Tony Moly do 3 other colours of this, one more pink, one more orange and one purple. So if I buy those I shall do a review there.


Next is the Tony Moly Petit Bunny Gloss bar. I got mine in glossy red and the packaging/bar was a lot brighter than I thought it was going to be. If you want to find this one then look for "Juicy Red" or the bear with the wink face (again this product is really cute). This one was £3.81 and I thought this was a bargain seeing as most good lipsticks can cost a good £7

This is the gloss on my hands, as you can see it is quite a bright colour. It came off surprisingly smoothly (kind of like lipstick on a hot day) and it was really nice to put on.

Unfortunately I don't have a picture of it actually on my lips and these just looked really weird. But I can tell you it's quite vibrant on too, its' not as glossy as it looks in the picture but it does feel nice on. As it says o the advery it's a creamy texture. When you first put it on it will smudge off quite easily but once it starts to dry a bit it sticks and lasts a surprisingly long time. Again, like the blush it starts to fade but the colour has stayed on (though now it's not that noticeable) for about 4 hours.
Overall:
  • Great price
  • Vibrant colour
  • Goes on smoothly
  • Feels nice on
  • Colour lasts a surprisingly long time


Thirdly and finaly I bought the Tony Moly Hello Bunny Perfume Stick in Momo Fruity. It was  £6.43 so the most expensive of the products but I've read other reviews and people say they last along time so it seems worth the money. Plus it's probably the same price as any similar spray you can buy.

So when you open it there's a cap on the bar that sort of pops on and off. I guess it's handy for keeping it fresh and I think I'll keep mine on there until it gets annoying.


So here it is! I'd never heard of any perfume stick before now but it's actually quite handy, you don't have to worry about it leaking in your bag or breaking. Like the Lip Gloss bar it feels really creamy to put on, it feels a bit like moisturiser. Right the smell is probably what you want to hear about. It is quite fruity but also kind of musty (but not like old lady musty) and rather pungent (I can smell it well with a blocked nose). It reminds me a lot of some of the Harajuku Lovers perfumes but it's not asjuicy as that. I like the smell and personally would wear it a lot, it's not as nice as I was expecting it to be but it's certainly not bad. 
I read some other reviews and they said that it's strong but fades quite quickly, so I wasn't  expecting it to last long but it has, it fades over time but it's not like you put it on and five minutes later and then it's gone. I think it's a good everyday wear perfume, but nothing fancy. I used it and it used hardly any so I think it will last a long time
Overall:
  • Feels good on, like moisturiser
  • Fruity yet musky smell, quite nice
  • Lasts longer than I expected
  • Looks to last a long time, so good value for money

Oh and as I bought 3 items I got 5 freebies. Some moisturiser and some cleansing foam. Bit disappointing I got four of one product but they were free so I can't complain. I haven't tried these out yet but I may update the review when I do.

*BONUS PICTURE*. I'm very happy with my purchase, f2plus1 (on ebay) is a very good store to buy Korean cosmetics I was surprised at how good the price was (especially free shipping). Thanks for reading and if you have any questions feel free to comment below c:
