Blog #54: K-Beauty Box - Laneige 2016 Two Tone Collection


Beauties, ever have a feeling that Christmas came too early? I just did yesterday when I dropped by the Laneige SM Mall of Asia pop up store and picked up my K-Beauty box!

Sparkling Beauty - this Spring season's K-Beauty Box is all about the YOUNG, CHIC and BEAUTIFUL






As some of you may know, I'm in love with the Two Tone Lip Bar which you can read all about on this post. That's why my happiness couldn't be contained as I posed for the camera carrying my own K-Beauty box!

Here is where the true beauty lies - all four shades of the Two Tone Lip Bar and Shadow Bar





I was literally shaking while unboxing this gift in front of the Laneige ladies. I think they were able to feel my overwhelming joy upon laying my eyes on these beauties. Imagine all eight of Laneige's new products are in my hands!!!




But enough of my raves, let me share with you a brief background about this season's K-Beauty box. As we all know, Korea's enjoying the Spring season and a lot of brands have come out with their own version of products that cater to the latest trend. Laneige, being a pioneer in K-Beauty, wow once again with this eye-catching and truly sparkling line, the upgraded Two Tone Collection.

The New Two Tone Collection has four vibrant Lip Bar shades and four elegant Shadow Bar colors




Being a HUGE fan of the previous Two Tone Lip Bar Collection (revisit post HERE), I was super ecstatic when words first came out about the launch of this upgraded collection. The hype grew even more when the precious new shades Juicy Pop and Dear Pink made their debut on the hit Korean drama series, Descendants of the Sun.

Uber gorgeous Korean actress, Song Hye Kyo's character, Dr. Kang Mo Yeon, was seen applying the Juicy Pop shade of Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar on her way to meet Song Joong Ki's character, the hunky Captain Yoo Shi Jin while the Dear Pink Two Tone Lip Bar was used as a marker during one of the giddiest scenes in the drama, the land mine scene of Kang Mo Yeon and Big Boss.

As the collection was launched, a series of pretty teaser photos were released on Laneige's official website that showed the vibrant shades of the new Two Tone Lip Bar and Shadow Bar.

Part of the K-Beauty Box is a lovely magazine that let me learn more about Laneige's hero collection this season. Let me share with you some snippets from the I'M LANEIGE Spring 2016 Lifestyle Magazine.

Perfect Synergy of Two - that's the Laneige Two Tone Collection mantra which I kind of agree with. The two shades in each bar complements one another, giving off a beautiful, natural gradient.

Perfect Synergy of Two - indeed it is!
