Be warned: this is a fun and colourful post to look at this cute TONYMOLY Mini Fruit Lip Balm Set:
I received this for Christmas last year and have been enjoying it for the past few months!
TONYMOLY is a Korean beauty brand known for having some of the most adorable packaging on the market (see Bunny Pocket Mist here). The set includes 4 flavours: Cherry, Green Apple, Cherry Tomato, and Blueberry:
The first thing that jumps out is the shape of each lip balm! They look so realistic to each of the fruits:
I enjoy how the stems are made of a rubbery material – the cherry one is fun to play with. They’re each about the size of a ping pong ball.
Each lip balm comes with a plastic cover inside – I like to keep these to maintain freshness:
Here’s what each lip balm looks like inside:
I was surprised that the Cherry one contained a peachy coral shade of lip balm – I was expecting, well, a cherry colour. It smelled like cherry though – it was quite artificial and sweet.
The Green Apple was a real let down in terms of colour and scent. It was just a clear colour – I suppose they don’t want green tinted lips? But the smell was so faint and not at all a crisp green apple scent – more like a sweet sorta apple smell. I had high hopes for this one!
The Cherry Tomato surprised me the most with its smell and colour. But it doesn’t actually smell like tomato – more like passion fruit.
The Blueberry one turned out to the best smelling one – a nice juicy sweet berry smell that reminded me a lot of this Blueberry Muffin doll (Strawberry Shortcake’s friend):
We used to have a few of these dolls and they were scented with their corresponding names! 😀
These lip balms actually pack quite a colour bunch:
The most pigmented flavours are Blueberry and Cherry Tomato. The Cherry one shows up as a peachy nude on my lips that’s very wearable. Green Apple is so lame… clear nothing. These balms aren’t sticky on the lips at all and feel quite moisturizing. They’re not too long wearing but I’m fine with reapplying. The only downside with these lip balms is that I have to dip my fingers into the pot to apply them.
I also had some fun mixing the tops and bottoms of each lip balm to create franken-fruits:
Each of the lip balms contain 7g of product. This set retails for $38 CAD exclusively from Hudson’s Bay [link] but the individual lip balms are available from TONYMOLY directly for $10 USD each [link]. There is one additional flavour that is available individually: Peach. I’ve had the TonyMoly Peach Hand Cream before and based on how great that smelled, I bet the lip balm is awesome too.
