Hot Or Not? Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bars

30.1.17




Having chapped lips, I am always on the look out for lip products that are hydrating and moisturizing, and even though I am a huge fan of darker shades as well, I often opt for sweet wearable tones during the day. So when Laneige launched their Two Tone Tint Lip Bars a week a go, I had a good look at these four hues (there are 8 in total), and to put it mildly; these are by far the prettiest little things that I have ever had in my lip collection to kick start the year of 2017.


Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bars

The Packaging

Retailing at RM80 each in stores, the packaging resembles the design of its predecessor, which is the highly pigmented Two Tone Lip Bar. The only difference between the two is the cap, where the previous one is coated in silver and the current one is in pastel pink.


The Colors

Similarly contained in a rectangular tube, the form of the Tint Lip Bar comes with a lever system where you can raise it to a comfortable height for application. However for this, be ensured not to level it out too much, as it can break easily upon swatched.


Uncapped
The Name of the Shades

Nonetheless as mentioned before, there are four hues out of the total eight, and if followed accordingly to Laneige's coding, there is 03 Tint Mint, 04 Fruits Candybar, 07 Lollipop Red and 08 Cherry Milk.


Plus if you would realize, the classification of these tones also ranges from the lightest to the darkest as well (03 light-08 dark), so depending on how deep you would want your shades to go, it would be easier to reference them by that too.


The Difference between the Two Tone Lip Bar (Right) & the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar (Left)

In terms of the formation of the lip bars between the current tinted one and the original, you would notice that upon uncapping, the Two Tone Lip Bar (right) has a diagonal cross down cut, separating the darker tone from the latter. Where else if you would take a look at the Tint Lip Bar (left), it has more of a V-shape to give the lips a great rose ombre look.

On the tone

So as for the hues, the first one that we have here is in 03 Tint Mint. Like its name suggest, it has a minty shade of cyan along with a sweet pink at the tip, right at the top. As mentioned, 03 is one of the lighter shades, so the color payoff for this is extremely natural.


Application on the lip

In terms of its essence, it doesn't really have a minty fragrance to it as to be expected by its name, but the tone does give off a very fruity scent that one might enjoy. Overall, the formulation glides on smoothly and is extremely hydrating on the lip.

No.4 Fruits Candybar

The Tone

Next up we have 04 Fruits Candybar. This is a personal favorite out of the four, and the fragrance that it gives off is exactly like berries. However, it should be mentioned that the scent for this doesn't really linger long- more like only during application and an hour after, but it also gives a very sweet natural pink-ish finish that is suitable to most skin tones.


Application on the lip

You can also most certainly layer up with this one for a more intense look, and like the shade before, it provides very comfortable finish and moisture on the lips as well.

No.7 Lollipop Red

The Tone

Shifting from natural hues, we now have found something deeper in the shade 07 Lollipop Red. This one is not a bright, vibrant flash of red, but resembles more of a cooling watermelon blush, with slight hints of a blue undertone.


Application on the lip

Application wise is just as smooth as the shades above and equally as moisturizing, however in terms of pigmentation, the color payoff for this is much stronger. Regardless, it does cover up the crevices on your lips without much stickiness and plump it up nicely, plus noticeably upon longer wear, it leaves a very sheer tint of red on the lips too.


Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar
No.8 Cherry Milk

The Tone

Last but certainly not the least, we have the darkest shade amongst the four; which is in 08 Cherry Milk. I really commend Laneige's naming process for this, for this particular tint lip bar sounds exceptionally delicious for some reason. Plus having it in light burgundy, it coats the lips in this creamy finish that is very light and comfortable upon wear.


Application on the lip

Giving off a more highly pigmented tone, the only thing with this color (as you might notice from the picture above), is that its consistency is not as effortless as the other shades in the collection. If you have dry chapped bits, it would be highly suggested to exfoliate before application, in order to the formulation not to cling on to it. Nonetheless at the end of the day, it does leave the lips nicely moisturized with a hint of color, without any weighty feeling upon wear.

Swatches

Thoughts

On overall, the Two Tone Tint Lip Bars are a home run for Laneige, as not only are they exceptionally stunning in color and formulation, but also because they are very practical to have with you at all times.


Being extremely wearable for both day and night (the consistency buildable), each shade can last for up to four hours of wear without reapplication, and even after it wears off, it leaves a tinge of color that can go on for another two hours on the lips.


Swatches

What I personally enjoy about them is that they are not heavy upon wear and gives the lips an extremely moisturized feeling without any form of stickiness. Plus as can be seen from the swatches above, you wouldn't need much effort on application to show off each of its unique tone as well.


So if you are planning on getting the range, it would be highly suggested to call the Laneige store closest to you to check on its restock. As mentioned in the video above, most of the brand's counters and boutiques have already sold out of the collection within the first few days, so it would be good to always research beforehand. Nonetheless, if you would like to know more about the line in the meantime, you could always head over to Laneige's Official Website and Facebook Page for further information.
