This One Lippie Will Help You Achieve The Hottest Trend In Korean Beauty Now

Thanks to the popularity of actress Jun Ji Hyun in the K-drama Legend Of The Blue Sea, mermaid lips are all the rage now. Think moist and dewy two-toned puckers that look as if they were just bitten. To achieve the look, the actress had to use two lipsticks: a lighter shade all over the lips with a stronger colour on the inside.

For women who might not have the time to do so, try the new Two Tone Tint Lip Bar from Korean beauty brand Laneige. The lipstick/balm hybrid has a ‘V’ cut that splits the bar into two parts: rosy coverage on the tinting zone on the lips while keeping the outer areas hydrated.

The triangular tint translates into a colour gradient on the lips, while the balm moisturises the outer lips, creating the natural pout in one single swipe. Formulated with the same Moisture Wrap technology used in the brand’s Lip Sleeping Mask, the balm creates a moisture-rich mineral network to lock in moisture and hydrate.

The Laneige Two Tone Tint Lip Bar ($32) is available in eight shades and will hit stores on January 5, 2017.
