Here’s a treat for you my lovely readers : the very first images of Peripera upcoming Pearly Night Ink Lasting Pink Cushion ! 😁


Do you remember Peripera Ink Lasting Pink & Mint Cushions and Peripera No Sebum Milk Sun Cushion from the Perikiki Summer Collection ?


These cushions had a special case : the top was filled with green or pink water that made little characters moved along when you turned the cushion case to the sides or upside down 🌊

WellPeripera Pearly Night Ink Lasting Pink Cushion is the glammed up version, with pink glittery water and hologram stars filling the case 💎Perfect for the Christmas season 🎄


Yet Peripera Pearly Night Ink Lasting Pink Cushion has one major flaw : it will only be available in November 😉

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 :



Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar is a clever lipstick made of 2 contrasting shades reunited in a single rectangular body to help you get the perfect gradient lips in just one swipe 😀






The line includes 10 different colors, from soft, everyday look to bold statement 😉



Magenta Muse, Red Blossom, Pink Salmon,

Milk Blurring, Daring Darling, Pink Step


Cashmere Nude, Neon Juice, Dolly Grape & Burgundy Love


Here’s how to use Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar :

1. Regular gradient


  •  Apply Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar on your lower lip
  • Turn the lipstick and apply to your upper lip
  • Press the inner part of your lips together



  • Open your mouth quickly
  • Correct the shape with a Q-tip
  • Gradient look completed !


2. Blended gradient


  • Apply Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar on your lower lip
  • Press your lips together
  • Correct the shape with a Q-tip


3. 2/3 gradient


  • Use the smallest side of the lipstick to apply only of the color on your upper lip
  • Slightly press your lips together in order to transfer some of the lipstick on the inner part of your lower lip
  • Apply the other shade on the remaining part of your lower lip, still using the small side of the lipstick



4. Reverse gradient


  •  Apply Laneige Two Tone Lip Bar on your lower lip, with the darker color on the outer part
  • Turn the lipstick and apply on your upper lip
  • Press the inner part of your lips together
