Writer Sofia Kim Shares Her Favourite Korean Lipsticks

#1: Moonshot Lip Feat, $29, Sephora
You only need one swipe of this hydrating, semi-matte lipstick for full-colour payoff. I also personally love the unique slant as it makes applying lipstick so much easier. #2: Innisfree Real Fit Creamy Lipstick, $20
Enriched with botanical oils, this creamy lipstick is super moisturising and does not dry my puckers. It also has great colour payoff. #3: Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick, $34
This highly pigmented lipstick is made of 35 per cent hydrating serum to moisturise and plump up your puckers. #4: Mamonde True Color Lipstick, $24
Formulated with a moisturising oil and the brand’s unique wax blending technology, this glides on easily and provides continuous hydration. #5: 3CE Matte Lip Color, $29, Sephora
With a velvety smooth and matte formula that acts as a primer-and-colour in one, this adheres to your lips without drying it out. #6: Etude House Dear My Enamel Lips-Talk, $18.90
This comes in matte, cream and glossy finishes but I personally prefer the first option. It is very pigmented and contains apricot kernel, sunflower seed oil and honey extract to nourish lips. #7: Clio Virgin Kiss Tinted Lip, $19.90, Watsons
This long-wearing, semi-matte hybrid lipstick acts as a tint but has a creamy texture that glides like a dream onto your puckers. #8: Bbia Last Lipstick velvet Matte, $13,
This is my personal favourite amongst the lot. It is creamy, long-lasting and hydrating. It also does not set into the lines on my lips and helps me achieve a perfect pout. Main image: Like this?
