I first discovered Laneige when I went to Hong Kong on exchange in 2013! I bought some nose strips and also their famous sleeping mask. However, I didn’t know where to find them in Canada but now Sephora stocks the brand!
A little while ago, I did an ombre lips tutorial which is one of the beauty trends in Korea right now. Laneige came out with these Two Tone Lipsticks which are suppose to create an ombre effect with it’s pre made color combinations! I received 4 shades to test out and will be sharing my review and swatches!
Packaging: The lipsticks are in a sleek half white and half silver packaging. At the bottom of each lipstick, the color shows through clear packaging which is great for picking up the right shade in your collection. The way the lipstick twists up is very unique! Instead of turning in a circular motion, there is a clicker on the side of the lipstick. You just push down on the clicker and the lipstick will push up. I like that the packaging looks sophisticated and minimalist!
Formula: Each of the lipstick is very creamy and glides smoothly on the lips. The formula is light weight so you won’t feel anything on your lips once applied. However as it’s so creamy and light, I find it settles into my lip lines instead of gliding over. The staying power is actually quite good considering it gives more of a natural look. The colors stain a bit to help with the staying power. There is a light scent as you are applying but it disappears pretty quickly. Overall, the formula is nice but I wish it’s a little bit thicker so it can hide more imperfections such as dry skin and lip lines.
