So I definitely have a thing for Laneige and I even up determined to try out every two toned product that they release – this two tone tint bar was no different and I was so excited when I saw this online. I have used their standard two tone bars before (and the eyeshadow bar, which was very disappointing) and although I liked the colour, I found that the formula tended to accent dry lips. With the introduction of the Two Tone Tint Lip Bar, I had hoped that this issue would be amended.
Similar to the previous product, this product has two colours and formulas – a coloured ‘tint’ side that has a more opaque and creamier consistency, and a balm side. These two sides are layered in a way to create a gradient lip effect in a single swipe.
I had watched a few YouTube reviews of this when it was first released and heard that the colours weren’t too different to each other, so I ended up choosing two shades that I liked most – a light pink and a deeper burgundy. Coincidentally, these were both ‘Sungkyung’s Choice’ – #03 Tint Mint and #08 Cherry Milk.
These Two Tone Tint Bars were sent to me by BB Cosmetic for review and you can also get them on their store for USD$21.78 – this includes free international shipping, and you can also get an additional 8% off with my code (which I don’t make money from, but will bring down that cart total): QAL3F6ZA8YZ
Honestly, I first saw this Lip Sleeping Mask online and then in store when I was in Korea and I did want to try it (because it smells amazing) but it’s taken me so long to do this just because I wasn’t convinced that this would be an interesting product. In my eyes, I figured that it just looked like glorified Vaseline, and I’m not even a fan of Vaseline (which is basically petroleum oil jellied) except for in desperately dry times. However, when I was going through BB Cosmetic‘s website, I figured that I might as well give it a shot!
At the moment, they carry four different versions: Berry (the original one), Grapefruit, Apple and Vanilla (which are from the holiday release). I was pretty keen to try all of them, to be honest, but considering that BB Cosmetic were going to generously send me them for review, I chose the original Berry one – and will probably purchase the others at a later date just for the different scents.
I’ve been testing this one out for a while because I’ve had a few mixed opinions about it. Laneige is very famous for their two tone bars – especially their lip bar – and their brilliant choice of spokesmodel surely helps. There have been a lot of positive reviews about the following product but, to be honest, I’ve always been a little bit hesitant about it. I’m a big fan of eyeshadow and I love to play with different colours and styles every day. The one thing that doesn’t work out very well for me (pretty much ever) is stick eyeshadows. They always seem not to blend well, apply streaky and crease almost immediately on my eyes, so I usually stick to powders. Regardless though, I did swatch this while I was in Korea and I really liked the colour combination but didn’t end up buying it to try because I was worried the formula would crease.
However, I ended up regretting this when I came back to Sydney because I saw so many posts about it and I was so curious about how it would end up on my eyes. Luckily though, I have some wonderful people supporting my blog and StyleKorean kindly sent this over (along with a few other things I forgot to pick up in Korea) for me to review. I’ve been using this along with the two tone lip bars (which reviews are coming soon for) or read on for my thoughts and some recommendations about this easy-peasy eyeshadow stick!
