DECODING THE LANEIGE LIP SLEEPING MASK - Does it live Up To Its Hype?
Founded in 1994, Laneige is a subsidiary of the beauty conglomerate Amore Pacific which pretty much testifies that it is truly one of the best.
Just like a sleeping mask that is applied onto the skin as the last step of our bedtime routine, this Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask too denotes the same process, but only on our lips. Hey, our lips too need nourishment, and who doesn’t fancy lush pink au naturel tones, uplifting our entire face?
Often, ointment type gels and balms do not work best for all lips. Yes, they may hydrate them on the surface level, while refusing to be absorbed. However, just like anything that screams of beauty, we must always go for products that have a deep-cleansing capacity. Touted as the “star Laneige product Sephora can’t get enough of”, let’s try understanding why it is so loved.
Packaging of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - totally drool worthy we would say
As human beings, don’t we take ‘first impressions’ a tad bit too seriously? Like other products from this brand, we really like the cutesy packaging based on the colours of the flavours. While the smaller size of 8gm comes in a plastic pink tub, the larger 20gm is stored in a sturdy frosted glass jar. Moreover, the application process is made easy since it is accompanied by a little spatula. We totally want to bless the soul of the individual who invented this equipment lest we’d dunk our fingers in.
Ingredients of the Mask
Consisting of Vitamin C, shea butter and several fruit extracts such as raspberry, strawberry, and goji berry, they do make our lips berrylicious. Additionally, it also constitutes various types of waxes, including synthetic (haha, we won’t encumber you with their names), which even helps in emitting a slight fragrance.
Having claimed to use a special technology with hyaluronic acid called Moisture Wrap TM, a mineral network of beta-glucans is formed over the lips that help in locking the hydration whilst keeping them moisturized over a period of eight hours.
Texture of the Laneige Lip Mask - silky as satin we say
A colourless formula, the texture takes the form of a thick moisturizer, but a silky balm. Unlike other products for our SOS skincare routine, you do not need to slather large amounts at a time; rather just the opposite. Exuding the ‘less is more’ vibe, simply use a tiny amount and apply it with the help of the applicator. Easy-breezy, isn’t it? Furthermore, forming a protective layer on the lips, this illusive pretty fairy pale pink (translucent in reality) blend leaves a residual mark when you wake up in the morning, along with softer, plumper lips.
According to us, it truly lives by what it says, “A leave-on lip treatment that soothes and gently exfoliates for smoother, more supple lips. Lip Sleeping Mask has a softening balm texture that closely adheres to the lips for maximum absorption”. Who’s ready to up their exfoliation game?Tickling our nostril bones just right, it reminds you of strawberry candy. Not hard-hitting in its sweet essence, it does momentarily transport you to that happy candy shop days!
Our Final Verdict on the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask - Yay or Nay?
After your morning cleanse, the excess residue vanishes and you’re left with healthy, supple lips. Many of us may have noticed that in generality, our lips seem rough, but that’s not the case with this marvel- your life will change forever; for the better. Speaking of the residue too, it seems healthy and nourishing to our lips; the intense moisturizing that it may require, but we fail to provide due to our busy as bee schedules. They key, however, is not in overdoing it, and even though it’s meant for all lip types, make sure to thoroughly go through the ingredient list in case of overly sensitive lips. Isn’t prevention better than cure?
And for all you multi-tasking achievers out there, who want more from life, and are constantly looking for awesome hacks, this Lip Sleeping Mask can also double up as a lip balm during the day, when you’re stepping out in style. For the chronically chapped lips, this mask is a godsend, but for the makeup lovers, just remember that it may form a thick layer under your lipstick, thus process with caution.
Nonetheless, a rich treatment for your luscious lips, the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is totally worth every penny. Available on NYKAA for INR 1150 for a 20 mg bottle, you can also purchase yours from beauty stores like SEPHORA and BODDESS.
