[REVIEW+SWATCHES] New 2018 Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar 05 Sunshine Coral

Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar 05 Sunshine Coral was purchased by Cosmeperks.

It’s time to say goodbye to The Matte and hello to The New Matte! Right, it’s Laneige that just added new shades in their Two Tone Matte Lip Bar. We know Laneige had only 4 shades of Two Tone Matte Lip Bar in its first release but now we have 6 new shades for this product. More choices will be better, right?

When heard Laneige would release new shades for their best seller matte lipstick, I thought it would be any color for spring and summer. But the fact, the 6 new colors are suitable for any look in any season, including autumn and winter. And their new shades are all pretty. I mean, P.R.E.T.T.Y! But I couldn’t be greedy and ended up with the shade Sunshine Coral which is a warm spring color. Fret not, let’s meet The New Matte!

Claims :

Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar 05 Sunshine Coral Review:

When it comes to the packaging, Laneige seems to always stay in mature and professional looks. And this product is not an exception. Comes in a white outer box, we can easily find the description of the product on the back side but unfortunately all is in Hangul (it’s not a problem if you can read and understand it, though). If can’t, then let’s run together to Laneige official website because there is a place where we can find the full information of this product in English. Thank you Laneige, I love your site!

The lipstick itself is very unique because it doesn’t come in a round shape but a rectangular bar. The tube has a soft rosy pink color and the bottom of the tube shows the main color of the lip bar inside. It has a simple yet elegant Laneige logo on the front side and a seal on the back to indicate that the product is brand new when you buy it.

The square tube is not a thing that you can twist up to take the product out. This is why I said it’s a unique package because we have to lower the button on the side of the tube to push the lip bar upward and otherwise, push the button upward to retract the lip bar. I think it’s very fun. But be careful since the lip bar can be easily broken, make sure you lift the lip bar little by little. Lowering the button one step is enough to take out the lipstick and I can use it for 2-3 layers.

We are supposed to apply the lipstick lightly while holding the button with our thumb. But I usually (or maybe always, hehe) omit this suggestion every time I use this lipstick and so far I do not face any issue about that. The lip bar is quite sturdy and stable. But once again, being careful is better (I mean, do not follow my bad habit, hhaha).

I do not notice any fruity nor floral fragrance from this lip bar. It smells like a lipstick without any pleasant scent. I smell a very light chemical scent instead. It is not a major issue because the scent is almost unnoticeable, unless you sniff it so closely to the lipstick bar.

Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar is very innovative, comes in a rectangular shape and has two colors in one lip bar. This lipstick is the easiest way to create the most popular Korean gradation lips. No need to buy two lip products to get two matching colors. No need to apply concealer to get the gradation look. Just one lip bar. It’s easy and quick!Basically each shade of Two Tone Matte Lip Bar consists of a vivid lip color (the main color) and a lip primer.

Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar 05 Sunshine Coral Review

The shade Sunshine Coral is described as “spring-like apple mango coral”. Aaand… this shade is extremely pretty! I’m serious, it’s not too different from the official swatches. So, the main color is bright red-orange with a warm undertone. It’s a cheerful spring/summer shade, a kind of shade that instantly gives a bright effect to my skin. Meanwhile, the lip primer is pale peach that matches so well with the main color.

Both of the vivid lip color and the lip primer are pigmented, but I can’t say they are highly pigmented. The colors show off nicely but on my lips, one layer is not enough for my liking. Well, one layer application will give a natural look but if you like bold color I suggest to apply 2-3 layers because the colors are buildable.

Interestingly, these two colors have different finishes. The vivid lip color has satin finish (I think it’s similar with my Laneige Silk Intense Lipstick). It’s not too dewy but still gives a little sheen and looks moist. Meanwhile the lip primer is matte. But they have a same texture. Both colors glide smoothly and easily on my lips and are not clumpy at all.

At first the lip primer tends to accentuate the fine lines on my lips due to its matte finish and pale color, but after pressing my lips together to complete the gradient look, the moist formula of the main color helps to make my entire lips look softer. About an hour after application, the sheen of the main color becomes matte (finally, real matte) but thankfully it still looks smooth and doesn’t dry my lips at all.

The longevity is quite decent, about 5 hours. It’s not fully transferproof, even after becoming matte on lips, I still found a little color transferred on glasses. But the good point, this product leaves a pinkish stain on lips which means it doesn’t leave your lips look pale when the lipstick wears off.

Nowadays Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar Sunshine Coral is my new favorite lipstick. The shade is very pretty and the formula works nicely. It helps me a lot to get gradation lips quickly and easily. And also, the gradation result looks super natural on lips.

I highly recommend this lipstick duo for you, especially if you love gradation lips and matte lipstick but want to get a very friendly non-drying formula at the same time (ah, and the unique packaging as well). Overall two thumbs up for Laneige Two Tone Matte Lip Bar.
