Gradient Lips Made Easy : Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar & How To Use It

Published March 27, 2015 by Beauty-full Dreams

Gradient lips is one of the most distinctive features in Korean makeup. This freshly bitten aspect gives a cute and attractive look to your lips and is heavily used in Kdramas.

Usually, to achieve this effect, you need to work with 2 different shades of lipstick : first, you apply the lighter color all over your lips, then you apply the darker color on the inner part of your upper and lower lip and carefully blend it outward. Wich can a bit tricky and time-consuming.

Luckily, Laneige solved this problem by releasing the Two Tone Lip Bar line :

    • I totally agree with you ! It’s not always easy to find the perfect matching shades (in the same texture too) and the gradient effect requires a bit of practice so Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar really is a great idea 😀

      And you can use it in multiple ways/looks too, which is always a big plus for a beauty product ^^

    • 😀 Which one did you get ? I still haven’t bought one (a bit pricey for me so I keep it on my wishing list until my next order 😉 ) so I’m really curious about how it looks in real life 🙂 I’m looking forward to reading your review about it ^-^

      • I got the 01 Magenta Muse, I wanted the 02 one but they were only new in and she did not have all the colors. It’s pretty nice tho, subtle because the colors are both reds. I’ve only tried it once so far, it was a nice color but a bit hard to get the gradient effect. They kind of just blurred together. I will have to practice some more. It was a little on the pricey side they were 25000 won in store but lucky for me there was a deal on so I got it for 20000won.
