The two-tone lipstick trend has been popular in Korea for quite a while, and now we have our own gradient lips with these new candy-like lipsticks. Whether it is the product inside or the packaging, they are so pretty, don't you agree? Laneige two-tone lipstick (CAD $35) is described as a cult K-Beauty favorite for creating an effortless ombré lip, this fashionable high gloss and semi-matte formula combines two makeup artist-curated shades in one sleek tube. It is available in fun, trendy color duos, it features a custom oblique cut that delivers a youthful, fuller pout and a perfect gradation with every swipe.
The two-toned lipstick bullet produces a gorgeous gradient lip which goes on very smoothly provided your lips are properly moisturized. The formula is comfortable to wear and glides on easily on the lips and the pigmentation is nice and is quite buildable. I have tried and used the bullet in both ways, like keeping the darker shade inside and lighter outside and vice-versa. Even I have rubbed the lips after the application to mix up the shades. It works nice based on how you like it, darker or lighter shade inside or outside. The lasting power of the lipstick is okay, stays on 3-4 hours before I felt the need to reapply, and that is when I did not eat or drink anything during the duration.
The gloss and matte in this two-toned lipstick give a nice finish to the lips, the dark shade is glossy while the lighter contrast is semi matte. The oblique cutting naturally blurs the color border and creamy and smooth texture completes natural gradation. To apply this lipstick, one needs to gently push down the slider to reveal lipstick. Place the darker color on the inner lips and a lighter color on outer edges for instant gradient lips or vice versa based on what your mood is.
This would be a great addition to your lipsticks if you are looking for something trendy, chic, and also if you are a fan of K-beauty trends. Laneige Two Tone Lipstick is available at Sephora.
