Korean brand Laneige has been around for a while and offers a range of effective skincare products, but it was the Lip Mask that firmly put it on our radar. Since it went viral on TikTok, it’s become a firm favourite among beauty insiders and celebrities including Hailey Bieber, Kate Moss and Euphoria actress Sydney Sweeney.
Buttery smooth and long lasting, the formula feels almost gel-like on application, but quickly melts into the lips for instant, hydrating relief. The brand explains: “The unique formulation provides the ultimate hydration boost thanks to a potent blend of vitamin C, coconut oil and an antioxidant rich berry fruit complex that works to eliminate dead skin cells.” The result? A highly moisturising and smoothing lip mask.
How To Use It
Packaged in a little tub, it comes with a small spatula for applying the product directly onto the lips –a hygienic and satisfying touch. Again, the brand explains: “The product provides eight hours of continuous moisture and is ideal for normal to dry skin types. The initial intention was for it to be used as a lip mask – so we suggest applying it generously and leaving it on overnight.” We also like using it throughout the day to keep chapped lips hydrated, or even layering it with other lip products to add a subtle sheen.
What Insiders Say
“Just like with make-up, the secret to a great lip is the prep, and the Laneige Sleeping Mask is my go-to product for making lips look their best.” – Sara Hill, celebrity make-up artist
“This is a product that’s worth the TikTok hype. It has a firm place in my make-up bag as it’s so nourishing and gives your lips that plumped-up, luscious look. I like to apply lip liner all over my lips, then layer this on top – it acts like a juicy lip gloss while sealing in hydration.” – Alex Reader, celebrity make-up artist
“This is always in my kit. Full of vitamin C, it soothes chapped, dry skin and my lips are always smooth when I’m using this regularly. It’s my first step when I’m on set, too. I also use it every night before bed to wake up with softer lips in the morning.” – Louise Seymour, make-up artist
The brand has recently treated fans to new flavours and even a new formula. The range now includes Mango, Pink Lemonade Swirl, Peppermint, Grapefruit and Peach – to name a few. Plus Lip Glowy Balms have been added to the line-up – a more lightweight take on the classic formula packaged into a squeezable lip balm tube, these are perfect on the go.
