Given the sheer amount of Korean beauty products launching every month, it’s hard to keep up with what’s new in K-Beauty. To help you navigate the complex world of Korean Beauty, every week I break down the hottest beauty launches coming from Korea.
Unlike with my monthly posts on K-Beauty bestsellers, you won’t find any link to purchase these products as they just became available in Korea.
But without further ado, here are the latest Korean skincare offerings of the week! Don’t forget to check out this week’s skincare launches as well.
Laneige – Ultimate Glow Lipstick + Ultimate Velvet Lipstick
Ultimate Glow Lipstick
Ultimate Velvet Lipstick
Laneige announced the launch of “Ultimate Glow Lipstick” and “Ultimate Velvet Lipstick“.
Both products are highly-pigmented lipsticks that deliver vibrant colours thanks to a pigment atomization technology that makes pigment particles distribute evenly, without gaps. Through the “Pigment Pixalisation” method used in the formula, a very thin and light oil is applied to the pigment base, allowing the product to apply thinly, smoothly and evenly like spray paint.
The “Ultimate Lipstick” is available in two variants: Glow and Velvet.
“Ultimate Glow Lipstick” lightly adheres to the lips and wraps around them with a luminous finish. The lipstick comes in 10 shades: #01 Garden Rose, #02 Sweet Coral, #03 Champagne Mood, #04 Blanket Orange, #05 Day Red, #06 Cotton Pink, #07 Berry Pudding, #08 Merry Orange, #09 Tomato Mousse and #10 Cherry Like.
