Blog #56: Laneige 2016 Two Tone Lip Bar - Swatch & First Impressions


As promised, I'm back to share with you my first impressions and swatches for the new Two Tone Collection of Laneige! To start off, I first tested the new shades of the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bars. I want to be completely honest that these beauties were given to me by Laneige but rest assured the first impressions I'll be sharing are all sincere and honest opinions of mine. :)

The Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar Collection was introduced last year with 10 blinding duo shades that created a series of beautiful,vibrant gradient lippies.

Due to its success and the rising popularity of gradient lipsticks not only in South Korea but also in Asia, Laneige came out with four (4) new shades to complement the Spring season (YEY!).

The four new shades are included in the Spring 2016 K-Beauty Box that was released this week. The new shades indeed complemented the season with YOUNG, CHIC and BEAUTIFUL marriage of shades to make a pretty synergy of gradient colors.

As I've mentioned on my previous post, two of the new shades (Juicy Pop and Dear Pink) were featured in Song Hye Kyo's hit drama "Descendants of the Sun" which added to the hype for these lippies (watch the series and I guarantee you'd want to run to the nearest Laneige boutique to get one for yourself). 




Besides being featured in a super popular K-drama, these innovative lipsticks also stun with their classy and elegant packaging and striking shades.

Here's the whole gang of swatches!

First Impressions:


  • Texture



    • This has a somewhat different texture from the original Two Tone collection. It's more glossy than creamy which I think gives it a fresh upgrade. 


  • Color

    • Compared to the first collection, I love all the four new shades! I love that it complements different styles of a wearer like Juicy Pop for the funky ones, Dear Pink for the sweethearts, Maxi Red for those chic and sophisticated and Orange Blurring for those who want natural and simplistic look.


  • Pigmentation

    • Hmmm... this is where I'm somewhat on the fence. Compared to the previous Two Tone collection, I noticed that this batch has a lesser pigmentation when I applied on my arm. I guess it's because it's glossier now than the previous batch but I can't be sure since I haven't tried it yet on my lips. Will let you know on my next post (a more extensive review of the Lip Bar) if anything changes once I apply it on the lips. ;)




So far, I feel these four have the potential to become a style staple for me. I love that due to its varied shades, I can pair them with a lot of my outfits and play with them. Plus, the shades are so friendly, nothing too outrageous unlike the previous collection.




Next up, I shall be doing the swatch and first impressions for the Laneige Two Tone Shadow Bar, a new product of Laneige for the eyes. ;)

  2. Wow! I'm not particular with lippies but I find these lovely, especially the Maxi Red. It seems glossy lippies are back into fashion again.

  4. I think I love the shades of red and pink but I'll do it upside down because I want my outer lips to be darker than the inner. =)
