Cult Beauty: TONYMOLY
If you've got a penchant for lip gloss and heart meltingly cute animals, then you'll definitely want to delve into the cat-adorned cosmetics brand TONYMOLY. The line has a great mix of items, including lip glosses, face mists, lotions, face masks, solid perfumes and more. (And they're all packaged adorably, which is the most important takeaway here, people.) —Katie
The 411: TONYMOLY is a South Korean brand that was founded way back in 2006. While all their products aren't shaped like a cat, the ones that are became something of a cult hit over here in the U.S. Until this year, though, the products were nearly impossible to find in the states. Unless you were ordering from shady sellers on Amazon or buying overseas, you likely couldn't get your hands on these gems. But that's not the case anymore, because now the TONYMOLY brand is available on our site for the first time ever. (You're welcome.)
Why we love it: The packaging, DUH! Because, hello, look at how cute these things are!? Who wouldn't want to slather apple-scented moisturizer onto their face from an apple-shaped container? If only all my moisturizer containers were so literal, life would be a lot more fun. Plus, the little bunny lip crayons are the perfect conversation starters. If you're feeling a little lonely at school, just whip one of them out and watch everyone jump over themselves to marvel over how adorable you are.
We want: Everything? But the products that I loved the most were the Hello Bunny Perfume Bars (above). The scents are far from sophisticated, but they remind me of high school, in a good way. My favorite scent was Pom Pom (aka Green Tea) - it smelled like a sweeter, punched-up version of actual green tea. The perfumes are easy to rub on, and I found that the scents actually lingered for most of the day. Score. The tubes are adorable (BUNNIES! BOW-TIES!), and their pastel colors and chunky shape helps them stay visible in the bottomless cave that I call a purse.
