[Review] Tonymoly petite bunny gloss bars!

The Tonymoly petite bunny gloss bars have been on my shopping list for a long time, but I couldn't choose which one to buy! In the end, I saved up some cash and purchased all nine colours. I have no idea what I'm going to do with all of these, but eh - they're nice to look at, right?





Description and packaging

There are 9 Tonymoly bunny bars in total - each has a different, pretty colour and scent! Each of the bars also has its own bunny cap, which have varying facial expressions. How cute is that?!




They're described as being an "intermediate form between lipstick and lipgloss". When the adorable caps are off, they look like regular lipstigloss (?) bars. There are 2g of product in a bar. The downside of the packaging is that they come with a little barcode sticker on them. Once you take this sticker off, you lose the number of the shade. (I find this incredibly annoying, I like having my numbers on the actual product! Do I sound crazy yet?~)

You can buy these for $6 on ebay! 


(From left to right)

#1 - Juicy strawberry
#2 - Juicy grape
#3 - Juicy apple
#4 - Juicy cherry
#5 - Juicy peach
#6 - Juicy orange
#7 - Neon orange
#8 - Neon yellow (doesn't go on lips yellow, it changes colour once applied)
#9 - Neon red




The bottom of the gloss bar has a date imprinted onto it - this is the manufacture date.

Directions

"Complete your lips as a very soft baby lips by protecting moisture loss with berry complex and vitamin E, and maintaining roughened lips! Apply to lips gently after turning the stick to pull out the short length of contents (3mm-5mm)"

Note: Do not twist the product out too much - it won't twist down so easily, and it'll be stuck.





Swatches 

Here's some swatch pictures I took of the bunny bars. They look pretty different when swatched on the arm (I had to swipe 4-5 times for the colour to show).



On the lips is a different story - a lot of the colours look exactly the same, and I don't really see a difference between them (well, the light colours with light, darker with darker). If you really want to buy more than 1 bunny bar, I'd suggest getting 1 light colour and 1 dark!






My opinion

To be honest, I only bought these for the packaging. I didn't expect it to be "HG" or anything like that. So it wasn't a major disappointment to me when I found out that these were very, very sheer and nothing "omg!" worthy.

But it's not to say that they're horrible, or anything like that. They do leave a nice, slightly glossy look on the lips. However, some of the colours might settle into lip lines, which won't look that great - I suggest applying lip balm under it.

As for pigmentation - it's very sheer, but the colours are buildable. You won't see much of a difference on your lips, unless you swipe 4-5 times. (My favourite colours are #3, 5, 8 and 9)



Pros
- Lots of different colours (packaging wise...?)
- Slightly scented, but not overpowering
- Leaves a slight glossy look
- Natural finish
- Inexpensive

Cons
- They look too similar when applied on lips
- Has a gross, waxy taste (Yes, it's a lip balm, I know. But I hate that taste~)


Repurchase?
I personally wouldn't repurchase these. I think Tonymoly and other Korean makeup brands offer a lot more lipsticks that are better in pigmentation and overall quality. (Ex. Etude house dear my blooming lips talk)

The packaging itself is worth a try for first time buyers, though - it's so cute to apply, and all my friends want one for the cute bunny faces! ^__^ It's also not too expensive, so yeah - worth a try, if you're looking for an everyday tinted lip balm.

(By the way, I think bunny #4 is my neutral face... hahaha...)

The bunnies - not in order!




What about you?
 Have you tried these lip balms? What'd you think?

  1. I love these, I have juicy orange and apple. I think they have low pigmentation that can be built but only slightly. As a tinted balm they are fantastic, but not for people who want full on colour. I wear balm more than lip stick/gloss anyway so these are perfect for me x

  7. Omg they're so cute laa~ btw I like the number 4 the most kkee looks like if I bought the number 4 will match with my lips color, and would look natural~ do they moisture your lips? Or not?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. They do moisturize your lips, but all the same - I suggest wearing a clear lip balm under it to make it go on smoother. It might just be my dry lips, but the colour settles in lip lines if I don't have a balm under it!

  8. they are so cute, did you buy all of these ??

  11. Thanks for commenting in my blog!! I love your blog, it's so cute ^^ And those lipglosses, so sweet! I like the combined lipsticks & glosses because then you get all in one product... perfect, haha! The hand creams in your previous post are adorable too. I wish they sold those products in Australia somewhere!!

  12. It doesn't look very pigmented, such a pity though it has really cute packaging! And wowww, you purchased all 9 at one go!? Haha, but this is a great review! This shows how all the different colours look pretty similar when swatched, great information!

  21. I really love grape and peach. <3 I love them, but the colour is to light for a lipstick. It's more a balm/lipbutter. But I like it. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  22. Awh, these are the cutest gloss/balm sticks I've ever seen!! I think I'd buy them just for the faces. xD Thanks for the swatches June! <3

  23. The packaging is too cute! Your pictures and swatches are lovely! It's too bad that they have that waxy feel to them :(

    These Bunny lipgloss are very cute. Been curious about it for so long. Thanks for reviewing them!

  25. omg you bought all of that! that a lot .. I havent tried this one but I always see this on tony moly :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. These are just super cute but most of them are way too sheer for my liking! Although cute, these would make a great gift to girls who are younger or don't want much color, I'd just get shades 4 and 6!

    ReplyDelete
  27. The packaging is so cute and each one has a different face! Thank you for reviewing.

  46. Oh, they look lovely! But as you said, they are too sheer, and I would like to have some more color. Although I would definitely buy one r two because of the lovely packaging!

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'd buy them for the packaging alone, they are so cute :-) But in the end you are right about the shades being too similar and sheer though.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Aw oh my god wow they look amazing so so cute! I've never seen anything like them before! x

  51. The packaging is so cute! That was actually why I noticed this product in the first place, but it's a shame to hear that they look so similar and about the smell ;_; thanks for letting us know about the color similarity, otherwise I think some people would end up buying a bunch of different colors :)

    ReplyDelete
  52. I have Juicy Apple and Juicy Peach and while I absolutely love the Apple one and have whittled it down to almost nothing in the past 4-5 months, I'm not too big a fan of the Peach. Settles into the dry parts of my lips too much for my liking!

    ReplyDelete
  53. these are so cute!! but alas they go on a touch too sheer for my liking :( thanks for all the great swatches :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hello June, I loved these glosses from Tony Moly, he always sends very well in their products, not only Tony Moly, but also Etude House, Holika Holika and others. I'm actually supeita to talk because I love Korea, if I could have chosen would have been born there, I love the culture, bands and Korean cosmetics.
    Have tested products from Tony Moly, Etude House, Missha and Skin79 and I've been trying to buy more and more, but unfortunately it is very difficult to find Korean products here in Brazil, and is priced against absurd and so I have to buy on ebay sorry it takes to get here. But everything is fine when they arrive, I am awed every time I open a package and see that it is one of them. :)

    Congratulations for your blog and for your commitment to always do reviews on these cosmetics so that others may know better Korean brands, I think there are many products that are even better than those of most famous brands.
    Oh, sorry for my english, I do not speak the language and had to write everything by google translate. I have been following your blog by GFC. I wish much success to Junniku :)

  64. I have #9 Neon Red and I looooove the smell! It's so sweet and like juicy fruit? idk but I love it also because it is really smooth

  65. I wonder if this was intentionally marketed for school girls who don't want to be caught wearing make-up, but at the same time it's enough to give it a good shine. Thanks for the review.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Thank you for that awesome review! It helped me a lot since I'm up to order one of these. Thanks again! :)
