Tony Moly: GS08 Milky Way

Good morning!

*phew* This week has been insane and it is still not friday yet! I have about three assignments to be done in three weeks' time. Serves me right for procrastinating. urgh. Seeing as it's going to be a mad rush from now, I apologize if I am no longer as active in catching up with other blogs and commenting or posting on twitter and facebook!

Anyway, I sincerely hope you are not getting sick of Tony Moly-s by now. I was just browsing through the site where I ordered the galaxies when I spied some new pretties.

Ordinarily, I would have restrained myself as I'm technically on a no-buy. But one of them looked like a dupe for one of my lemmings, Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air! Since I couldn't lay my hands on Revlon's Whimsical either, I simply *had* to grab these glitters! How could I pass them up!?

Aren't they pretty?
So here's the one that first caught my eye: Milky Way!

2 coats of Milky Way over 1 coat of China Glaze Seaspray
So is it a dupe for GITA or Whimsical? I don't have them so I can't do a comparison but it does look pretty much like a dead dupe right? Sheer milky blue base - check. Large and small pink and blue glitters - check. There are also some tiny glitters that flashes blue and green when the light hits it just right.

Anyhow, dupe or not, this is a very soft and pretty polish by itself! Love it!


This is the most color accurate picture *shakes fists at the uncooperative sun*:



Application was great - the formula is smooth and the brush is easy to control. My only slight complaint is that the glitter is a little sparse. Of course, I'm not expecting it to be jam-packed with glitter since it is supposed to be soft and dreamy. But I had to shake the bottle and move the brush around for a bit to get more glitter for the nails above. Still, it's worth the effort *sighs happily*

Do you own GITA or Whimsical? What do you think of this color?

Stay tuned for more swatches from this haul! :)

  2. I am pretty sure that's a good dupe from your photos =)  When I use glitters that are sparse or hard to get ahold of, I turn them upside down and let them sit there while I do my prep and base coat.  Helps get more glitter on the brush most of the time!  Also, I'm eyeballing that orange polish!  It looks wonderful and feisty!  Can't want for swatches!  And good luck with your assignments!  I definitely can relate to procrastinating...oops >>

  15. Hmm I got mine off a GMarket (Singapore) seller but they don't ship to the west (only to Singapore, South Korea, Indonesia, Japan and Malaysia)... I am not too sure whether they sell through their main website - I found it a little confusing to navigate =\

  25. This is gorgeous!!!  I own Whimsical and from your pics, this is definitely a dupe.  Score!!  I love it.  The glitter was sparse in Whimsical too, but I didn't even care because it's just so pretty!!!  How many coats did you use?

    Looking forward to your other swatches.

  26. Ok, these are pretty awesome and the brand is completely new to me.  Where would be the best place to order them from online?

    ReplyDelete

  28. two other polishes look even more interesting) i can't wait to see the swatches!)

    ReplyDelete
  29. *yay* So glad I stumbled upon it :D 
    I did 2 coats of Milky Way over 1 coat of Seaspray because it was too sheer by itself. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I found mine online at Gmarket Singapore but the seller only ships to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Japan and South Korea. I am not entirely sure if they are available elsewhere. Perhaps you can try looking for them at ebay? I heard that you can find their galaxy collection there so maybe you will be able to find these glitters there too :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. oh goodie! So glad I snapped this up then! Was a little worried when I ordered because I couldn't find swatches of these online. Swatches for the other two will be up by this week ;p

    ReplyDelete
  32. Yup they are pretty unique! Will be posting swatches up by this week so do look out for them! :D

  35. yeh im from australia and korean gmarket shipping is too expensive cos they  do a boxed service thing. ebay is currently selling them for $9 shipped while you could get cutestmakeup order for $4 + 1.5 shipping = $5.50 shipped.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ah I see.. Thanks for letting me know! xx

    ReplyDelete
  37. These are so pretty! :) By the way, are they really sheer that you have to put on a base color first?

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'm afraid I didn't try it for myself to see if they build up to opacity nicely. :( They still looked pretty sheer at two coats so I decided to just layer them.
