Remember the name: Hin-Yari Ohana Lip Gloss. Because even a few years down the line, this lip gloss will be one of the weirdest inventions to ever hit the market. Sure, the internet is full of cat videos, and social media is almost OCD about cat GIFs. Sure, our level of obsession with cats is pretty insane. But even hardcore cat-lovers will have to admit that the idea behind this gloss is a bit much.
Beauty brand Felissimo‘s Hin-Yari Ohana Lip Gloss is a bid to constantly remind cat lovers of their feline friends. How? By promising ‘the same sensation of kissing a cat’s wet nose’, writes Teen Vogue. The product description describes the effect as kissing a cat’s ‘pleasantly cool nose’. Alright, then.
Hin-Yari Ohana Lip Gloss has a roll-on applicator and carries the scent of milk, for additional effect. The product also contains shea butter and hyaluronic acid for moisturisation. Available in pink, yellow and orange shades, the gloss sells at a pricey $11 (approximately Rs 722) and as of now ships just to Japan, because cats.
If you’re beginning to feel like this is a hoax, please know that Felissimo has earlier also launched ‘cat forehead’ perfume as well as a lotion that smells like a cat paw. If nothing else, Felissimo definitely knows how to grab headlines.
Amazing. Also, gross.
