Laneige Two Tone Collection – Review, Photos & Swatches (Video)
I know, I know, it needs improvement or something. I’m not used to reviewing stuff via my YT channel yet so I hope you can excuse all the lulls and all that jazz. Anyhoo, below are the basics and also some pictures
New Two Tone Lip Bar. Newly upgraded with Two Tone Color X Two Tone Texture
It gives glamorously sparkling Two Tone Lip, as if gloss was applied on top of Two Tone gradation makeup. Meet moisturized and glamorous lips tinted with Two Tone gradation.
Known to be Song Hye-Kyo’s personal pick among the newly released shades, Juicy Pop is a combination of a red and yellow shade, helping you to create that beautiful, juicy, ombre lip. The sub-color (yellow) does not show up on my lips but it does help even out the transition. If you have a lip concealer or a foundation underneath, or perhaps a lesser pigmented lips unlike mine, then it will be more visible.
Known Lee Sung-Kyun’s pick among the bunch, Maxi Red is a combination of salmon and red shade. I personally love this because it makes my lips look sweet, soft and supple. Unlike Juicy Pop, both the main and sub color in this particular shade is very visible on my lips.
Now this is actually my favorite. Dear Pink is actually quite similar to Maxi Red only it is combined with a pink shade rather than red. It gives you the same effect, only, I believe, this one makes me look younger and radiant for some reason. Ang lakas maka-kpop!
Another “ang lakas maka k-pop/Koreana” shade. I find this shade really interesting due to the white sub-color. It doesn’t show up (of course) but it helps even out the transition/ombre. Orange Blurring also gives that radiant, youthful look.
The Two Tone Lip Bars also feature two toned textures. The main color provides a glossy finish, while the sub color provides a semi-matte finish. This actually works especially if you have severely dry lips since they do not emphasize dry lines, chapped lips, etc. They also leave a stain or hint of color once they start to fade. Usually they last more than 4 hours on my lips but these lippies are not transfer proof so if you eat, drink, etc. They will start to fade.
Now let’s move on to the shadow bars…

Let’s complete attractive eye makeup easily and quickly with Two Tone Shadow Bar that has Artist’s color blending know-how for actress’ contour eye makeup
Combination of coral and darker champagne shade. Ideal for that “fresh” everyday makeup look. Love pairing it with a nude or coral lip.
Combination of lighter champagne & rose gold shade. Doesn’t really show up on my lids. Ideal for those who wants minimal eye makeup. Just to define their eyes/lids.
Combination of vibrant orange and a lighter champagne shade. Great for summer and ideal to be paired with the lip bar ‘Orange Blurring’
Most neutral shade. Combination of coffee and bronze-y shade (duh!) perfect for everyday use. It’s my favorite among all four shades.
Here’s what each of the shadow bars look like when worn. I forgot to mention in the video, that though a translucent/loose powder may prolong its staying power, these shades will no longer be as shimmery. There are tiny specs of glitter practically everywhere in these shadow bars, so when you set these with a loose powder, those glitters will no longer be as visible.
Without the translucent/loose powder, they only last for three hours but with it, I was able to wear it for more than four hours until it completely faded. If you have really oily lids, this may not work for you regardless if you set it since it really takes a while to set EVEN if you set it with a powder. I also failed to mention that you can use the shade ‘Humming Coral’ as a blush/cheek product. For more information, please feel free to check out this page.
All in all, I’m really in love with this collection. I find this entire collection genius because they make makeup seem a lot less complicated. In just a matter of seconds, or minutes, your ombre lip is good to go, and with just a few strokes, you now have a two-toned eye makeup.
If you’re not a fan of the matte lip trend that’s been going around for months now or if you want to be a tad bit closer to our idol Song Hye-Kyo, then I suggest you try these. You wont regret it. They’re one of the most comfortable lip products I’ve ever used and the shadow bars? OMG. Instant favorite. Regardless of its staying power, it’s still an instant hit. You don’t need to fuss about your eye makeup all you need is just to rub these on your lids, pat pat pat to blend then you’re good to go! I highly recommend these babies!
