In my previous posts, I blogged about the Witch Pouch Ombre Lipstick and compared it as a cheaper alternative for the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar. Prior to getting the Witch Pouch Ombre Lipstick, I bought the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar and in this post, I will be reviewing the lipstick.
Hopefully, this post will help you decide if you wanna lay your hands on the Laneige/Witch Pouch version for that Korean Ombre lips look!
The shade I gotten is the No. 6 Pink Step and I have forgotten how much it costs, but you can get this at Laneige stores and counters for around $30+. Let's first talk about the packaging, the box it came in was classic of Laneige. A simple silver box that is elegant and clean cut.
The Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in Pink Step itself is a white with silver cap lipstick. The whole feel is very sleek and no frills. Which in my opinion, is what Laneige is trying to aim for with all their products. On the side of the Two Tone Lip Bar, you will see a slider. This pushes the lipstick up for you to apply.
Note: It is best to only slide it down (to push the lipstick up) when the cap is taken off. This will prevent the lipstick from getting all over the cap.
One thing I noted was that the silver cap has a tendency to come loose on its own :/
You don't have to slide the slider fully to get a large amount of lipstick. The lipstick is also retractable to prevent any breakage. The Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in Pink Step that I gotten comprises of two shade to give that ombre look - In coral and in pink.
At the time of this post, I realise that I forgotten to do a swatch *tears*.
This is how the Laneige Two Tone Lip bar look like when swatched on my lips. It has a very "juicy" look unlike the Witch Pouch's ombre lipstick. I find that the two shades have a tendency to mix together and give a very uniform peachy coral look instead of an ombre look.
The Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar has a very pleasant peach scent and applies smoothly. However, I don't find that this is particularly moisturising even though it does not dry matte. In fact, I feel that this accentuates my lip lines and dry skin.
This lasted decently on me and left a slight tint that gives my natural lips a much more uniform look.
This is how the Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar in Pink step looks like on me. It is a very natural, shiny lip look and is fresh. It is perfect for days when you have very minimal makeup or when you want just a slight tinge of colour.
Would I repurchase?
Maybeeeee... But for the price point, I think I would prefer something a little cheaper.
If you are still debating if an ombre look is for you, buy a pigmented lipstick and dab into your inner corner of your lips. Use a finger to smudge out the lipstick to the outer corner and reapply more in the center for that ombre look. I recommend using an Etude House lipstick and this has been my go-to method for when I go to work. *fuss free, easy*
