LANEIGE just released their LANEIGE Meets Fashion 2017 collection! I didn’t realise prior to this, but LANEIGE has quickly become my favourite beauty brand. I’m always super excited whenever LANEIGE releases a new collection because their products are innovative, effective, and are very reasonably priced.
You might be thinking:
What in the world is a LANEIGE Meets Fashion collection?
Well, it’s an annual collection where they collaborate with Korea’s hottest designers to come up with a limited-edition collection. In the past, they’ve collaborated with Lucky chouette, Play No More, and Push Button to come up with gorgeous collections! This year, they’ve collaborated with up-and-coming Korean fashion designer, Yoon Choon Ho (YCH) for their LANEIGE Meets Fashion 2017 collection: LANEIGE x YCH.
And let me tell you… there are a few products that you absolutely NEED!
This year’s collaboration is inspired by the YCH Fall Collection: 80’s Modern Glamour. The packaging of the products has a classic herringbone pattern and retro-inspired polka dots.
But get this…
They’re embossed on wool, how cool! Hehe, that was a bad rhyme.
Let’s go ahead and check out what LANEIGE has in store for us K-beauty addicts with this LANEIGE Meets Fashion 2017: LANEIGE x YCH collection!
LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Dot Cushion (SPF14, PA+)
One of LANEIGE’s most popular makeup products (second to their BB Cushion, of course) is the LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Cushions. The Skin Veil Base Cushions are really lightweight colour-correcting bases but for this LANEIGE x YCH collection, they’ve been reformulated with the addition of Fitting Dot and Waterbank Essence ingredients.
And thus.. THE POWERPUFF GIRLS WERE BORN!
No, but it suddenly popped into my head and I just had to, haha! That’s actually how the LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Dot Cushions were born!
What in Bubble’s name is a Fitting Dot?
Fitting dot is a new blending technology that helps the makeup base blend seamlessly into the skin. The Waterbank Essence (one of LANEIGE’s best-selling skincare products) has moisturising agents that maintain the optimum moisture balance in the skin.
The LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Dot Cushions are available in two shades: Light Purple and Light Green.
The LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Cushions are my favourite colour-correcting products and these new, limited-edition ones are no different! However, these ones with the Fitting Dot and Waterbank Essence make the products more blendable and hydrating to the skin.
My favourite one is the LANEIGE Skin Veil Base Dot Cushion in Light Purple. I put it on the high points of my face and it adds volume and lift that gives me cheekbones that I never had.
LANEIGE Eyebrow Cushion-Cara
Your first thought might be (or not, but mine sure was!): Not another cushion product! Cushions have started as innovative to meh, okay to just unnecessary.
This LANEIGE Eyebrow Cushion-Cara is actually WOWZA type of AMAZING. It is a liquid-to-powder texture that is water and sweat-resistant, and lasts all day long! The two-tone combination allows you to use either one colour, both, or you could even customise your colour by mixing the two colours together. It includes a foldable dual applicator with an angled brush on one side and a spoolie on the other.
The LANEIGE Eyebrow Cushion-Cara is available in two shades: No. 1 Two Tone Grey and No. 2 Two Tone Brown. The one I have is in No 1. Two Tone Grey (which isn’t grey, but has more of an ashy tone compared to the brown).
I’ve been wearing this every. single. day. for the past 2 weeks or so. Because it is a liquid, it applies like a dream! It’s super smooth and isn’t clumpy. You can vary the boldness of your brows by how much you press into the cushion to dispense the product. For natural looking brows, dip lightly and apply. For bolder brows, dip the brush into the cushion with a little more pressure. After about a minute, it dries down to a powder and that’s when you can use the spoolie to blend out any harshness and you’re left with brows you were naturally born with (nobody has to know 😉 ).
You NEED this product in your life!!
LANEIGE Two Tone Matte Lip Bar
When I first swatched these, I sat there for like 5 minutes while my brain was trying to comprehend that something so gorgeous actually exists.
The LANEIGE Two Tone Lip Bars are LANEIGE’s best-selling lip product. Gradient lips are so popular in Korea, but the effect is a pain to achieve – too much and you’ll look like you’re bleeding (I had to learn that the hard way). With the Two Tone Lip Bars, all you have to do is ONE SWIPE for the perfect gradient lip look. I’ve been obsessed with them since I got them a year ago, and now they’ve released a MATTE range in this collection, known as the LANEIGE Two Tone Matte Lip Bars.
There are four different shades of the LANEIGE Two Tone Matte Lip Bars to choose from (L-R from my picture above): No. 1 Magenta Muse, No. 2 Red Blossom, No. 3 Milk Blurring, and No. 4 Cashmere Nude. I’ve been living in Red Blossom and Cashmere Nude. I’m going to post lip swatches of these on my Instagram soon, so follow me there (@beautynerdbynight) if you haven’t already! 🙂
Now that the self-promo is out of the way (lol):
They’ve included a new pigmentation formula that utilises fine micro pigment particles for highly pigmented matte colours and for them to stay vivid for longer. They’ve also included a Velvety Lip Primer to prevent dry, flaky lips. The LANEIGE Two Tone Matte Lip Bar contains ingredients that fills and coats wrinkles and imperfections on the lips to create a soft matte finish with minimal dryness and flaking.
I was very pleasantly surprised by how creamy and easy this glides on the lips because matte lipsticks are always at least a little bit dry and “draggy” on the lips. But not these ones. They are highly pigmented and they apply so smoothly and evenly and dries to a soft, velvety finish. They don’t feel drying and don’t make my lips look flaky (I’m looking at you ColourPop Ultra Mattes).
Do you need these?
Absolutely, 100% YES! If you’re a lip product hoarder (like me), well then you obviously need them, like the 84681 other lipsticks you obviously needed :p. Even if you’re not, but you love lipsticks with a soft, velvety finish, you seriously need these in your life! The colours are all perfect for fall!
This collection is now available at all LANEIGE Boutiques nationwide, and will be available at LANEIGE counters starting next week! So keep your eyes peeled for these – you don’t want to miss these amazing limited-edition goodies, especially the Eyebrow Cushion-Cara and the Two Tone Matte Lip Bars!
