The buzz: This Korean makeup and skincare brand was already famous in Singapore despite not having opened an outlet here—until now that is.
The vibe: From the day of its opening, the store has been inundated with squealing girls and we suspect it’s because Tony Moly’s products are so adorably packaged that the whole place looks like a giant pantry full of goodies. Look out for their gondola of apples (pots of face cream) and row of eggs (tightening clay masks). The brand is also endorsed by Korean superstars the Brown-eyed Girls, whose picture-perfect poses printed everywhere around the store might make for a higher male patronage.
The goods: Fans of Tony Moly used to have to travel approximately six hours to Korea to get their hands on their favorite products. Well, not anymore. The store is stocked with skincare bestsellers such as the Egg Pore series, the Tomatox and the Appletox, plus colorful makeup options.
Why you’ll be back: They must be doing something well as only one month into the opening of the first store, Tony Moly has already announced the launch of its second store at Bugis Junction later this month.
