AMW Reviews: Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lipstick in OR03

2 years ago, I've seen Tony Moly stores in Seoul, Korea and "almost" looked away as I've been very busy wandering around Etude House, Skin Food, The Face Shop and the "shebangs"!

Thank goodness I did not miss the chance to check out the stores and bought their nail polish remover!  Great job, Nikki!  Just when I get clueless about the brand and I started to play "safe", the safest bet would always be buying Nail Polish Removers!  :P *slaps forehead*

As the buzz was out that Tony Moly is arriving to our shores!  It's high time I check out the store again, this time, not just looking into their nail polish removers but deeper!  I visited their SM Manila branch last year and wow!  They do have a lot of makeup and skincare stuff that I can't believe I ignored!

Today, let me share to you the first Tony Moly cosmetic that I have tried!  Their Kiss Lover Lipstick!


 Shade is called OR03
OR would probably mean Orange
Judging by the shade on tube,
Guess what? --- I'm right! :P

Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lip Stick says ---
It makes lips glittering and moisturized.---High Shine Effect


Content: 3.5g

AMW says ---
  • Though packaging is not as cute as the other Korean brands, I find the simple black packaging really professional to look at and the slimmer packaging is also a nice change.
  • Super nice, tiny hint of fruity scent.
  • Gives a nice, wash of color.  Very natural to look at.
  • Does not look dry on once applied on lips.
  • Can be applied even without lip balm underneath.
  • No chapped, wrinkly-looking lips.
  • Product details are in Korean, can't seem to find ingredients list if you are into reading labels.
  • If you are looking for very bright, pigmented orange kind of lipstick, this isn't for you.
I can't seem to pinpoint if this product can be called a lipstick or tinted lip balm!  I would say, it is in between!  It isn't as pigmented to be called a lipstick yet, it isn't as moisturized to be called a tinted lip balm!  Help me Lord as I seem to indecisive for the first time!  *laughs*

Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lipstick is one hell of a lipstick that may look "nothing" once applied, but once you step back, you have this gorgeous hint of shade and the best part?  It stays!  I even tried licking my lips a couple of times (not to be done at home..lol) and so far, the "hint of color" is surprisingly there! But keep in mind no lipstick can surpass eating!  Once I ate, it's gone so I need to reapply.

  • For product to stay longer on lips, apply without lip balm underneath or blot your lip balm or lip treatment with a napkin prior to lipstick application.
  • To enhance the color of the lipstick, match your lip color and your blush color.  (this is not a rule but just a suggestion :D)
  • Feel free to apply the Kiss Lover Lipstick on top of your favorite lipstick to create a nice "sheen".
  • It helps to wipe the tip of your lipstick every now and to prevent spoilage especially if you're the type who loves to re-apply lipstick in the middle of the day.
  • Best applied straight from tube to your lips. For this particular product, a lip brush isn't needed.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Anyone who likes to test using various shades from pinks, reds to oranges minus the shocked look on your friend's faces! :D

Where to purchase and how much?
At Tony Moly SM Malls for Php398.00 (approx $9.00).

A closer look of OR03 on Tube
Super bright Orange looking shade like candies

Applied multiple times on lips
without lip balm
Keep in mind that my lips are pigmented to start with
Lighter colored lips may have tiny bit brighter looking orange

Like I said, to make this color pop, I used a bright orange blush 
together with my Tony Moly Kiss Lover Lipstick in OR03 
for that Kiss worthy look even if it's not red or pink!

Feel free to check out more Tony Moly products and "computer screen shop" HERE.
