𝕋𝕙𝕖𝕟 𝕀 𝕄𝕖𝕥 𝕐𝕠𝕦 𝕧𝕤. 𝕃𝕒𝕟𝕖𝕚𝕘𝕖 Skincare is everything. It comes first, no question but to me close second is lip care. Nowadays I don’t think you can find a person who does not carry lipbalm—even a basic gas station chapstick. Chapped lips is a no-no for guys and girls! No one wants to be remembered for rough and peeling lips— especially on that first kiss! Lately however I’ve been wanting a little more than just my average Carmex (though it does wonders), to give my lips a little more care. In my lip travels I heard of the brands Laneige and Then I Met You. I paid $22 dollars for Then I met You Honey Dew Mask and $20 dollars for Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask [vanilla] and let me say some Pros and Cons of both Then I Met You: Then I met you - Honey Dew Lip Mask

Travel-friendly lip balms for chapped lips
I’m a lip balm addict. I can get really dehydrated and flaky lips so when I leave the house or go for a small trip I need to have at least one product in my purse / backpack / tote bag. I love these three lips balms because they have hygienic and slim packaging that fits almost anywhere. And I like bringing these three around because they each serve a unique purpose: indeed LABORATORIES - Hydraluron + Volumising Lip Treatment ^ when you need some heavy duty hydration ($15) I am absolutely loving this lip treatment from indeed. After just one use my lips were super soft and didn’t have any flakes left over. The formula is clear, THICK and was actually hard to squeeze out of the tube at first. But once you put it on it feels moisturizing, but thick enough that it won’t move out of place. The only thing I will say is that I don’t these this product makes my lips look any more voluminous that they did already... but I don’t mind and for $15 I’m super happy with the results. I would even consider bringing this in place of my Laneige lip mask is I was going on a quick weekend trip or just had a small purse. Then I met you - Honey Dew Lip Mask ^ when you want dewy and glossy lips ($22) Say you want to look extra dewy or flirty...But you don’t want a gloss that will dry out your lips or will feel too sticky. I would definitely recommend trying this lip mask. It’s not as healing as the indeed lip treatment, but it will keep your lips hydrated and super super glossy. Plus it smells super nice. The product is clear and almost a little oily. It’s a really lovely formula and pretty packaging. The scent is sweet but subtle. Overall, I love pulling this out of my purse and swiping a bit on before going out because I feel extra dewy and pretty. Glossier. - Balm Dotcom ^ the jack of all trades ($15) Lips feeling a bit chapped? Balm dotcom. Cuticles feeling dry? Balm dotcom. Elbows cracking? Balm dotcom. Let’s be honest, it’s beautiful and lightly scented Vaseline. And I love it. It’s so convenient for when you’re out and about. For $15 it does seem a bit steep, but the packaging is cute, the scent is nice and the pink tint in this rose version is subtle but pretty. Overall, I’m happy to spend the money for this convenient and versatile product. 🥰💋
Dewy, glossy lips and convenient packaging
Side note: Isn’t the packaging so lovely? I love the Then I Met You blue. 💙 I was so excited to try out this lip mask when it launched last month for three reasons: 1) I thought the tube was super convenient for on the go, compared to the Laneige lip mask where I either have to use my finger or bring my little paddle. 2) The formulation intrigued me because it was meant to exfoliate your lips but also keep they moist / dewy at the same time. 3) I was really hoping it would smell like melona popsicles... The good: + Lips definitely look dewy af after applying. + Super convenient packaging, it’s slim and will fit into any purse or even your pocket. + The squeeze tube makes it easy to apply lip products without contaminating the applicator when you’re out and about (very relevant for right now where everyone is trying to be extra hygienic) + The formula is moisturizing (I would say more like an oil versus the buttery Laneige lip mask) but doesn’t leave lips sticky. + I’ve been wearing it consistently for a few days now and my lips definitely don’t feel as flakey as they did before. + Scent is nice, but subtle. The not so good: - I wouldn’t say that this is a direct replacement for the Laneige lip mask which is a little more moisturizing. I think the Laneige works perfect before bed or when your lips are in dire need of moisture. Whereas this is almost like a glossy balm for on the go. - This is definitely an investment seeing as it’s over $20 USD for just 0.5 oz of product. That’s not too far off from what the Laneige mask goes for, but it’s a little steep considering I don’t think it has quite the same moisturizing effect. Worth it? To me, this is worth it just because of the pretty and convenient packaging. And if you crave a really dewy, but natural look at work or on the go, I think you’ll like this. Would I repurchase? Probably, again just because of the packaging! But before I buy this one again, I want to buy glow recipe’s lip balm and compare! Then I met you - Honey Dew Lip Mask 💋

Laneige— Sephora birthday gift!
For my birthday I was able to pick up my annual Sephora free mini gift set, and this year I chose Laneige! I really wanted to see what the hype was all about on the Lip Sleeping Mask, since it’s soooo highly rated and on Allure’s top product list! Here are my thoughts after using them for a week! LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask it’s a no for me. ❌ Reason being: It actually dried my lips out. This stuff is literally just lip gloss that you put on your lips at night and that’s it. I will say that it does feel very expensive and luxurious when you put it on- but after like 3 hours of sleep, the stuff magically is gone from my lips and dried up into thin air. I’ve even tried wearing it during the day to see if I was just licking it off in my sleep, and it stilll evaporated. So, I will be sticking with my cheap Aquaphor that truly transforms my lips overnight. LANEIGE - Water Sleeping Mask also a no ❌ Reason being: when I applied this is feels NICE. It feels like a gel that’s so cooling and refreshing. It dried on my face and actually got really tight (idk if that’s supposed to happen?) and my face didn’t seem moisturized. Idk it was weird so I don’t think I would purchase again. LANEIGE - Water Bank Moisture Cream okay I won’t give it an X this time! ✅ I did enjoy this product, and really had a beautiful, dewy finish on my skin every time I used it as a moisturizer. I do feel like it gave me hydration and I liked the cooling, gel feeling of it like the sleeping mask had. Overall, I really like this stuff!
Lucious Lips 💋
First follow me for more content this like this and then go follow@RedheadSkincarebecause sis put me on to this! I got this sample from Sephora and I was this close 🤏🏾 to choosing a different gift but I remembered her review and decided to go with this set instead. Glad I chose the Laneige gift set because this did not disappoint! The directions says to wipe off the remaining amount the next morning but my lips were so dry this mask melted into my skin like buttah! A tip for anyone thinking about trying out new skincare for the first time. Always start small and get a sample or travel sizes first. Some skincare can be pricy so I like to try it out before going all in especially as someone with sensitive skin. My motto: Try Before You Buy! Can’t wait to share my thoughts on the rest of the goodies I got. ✌🏾 LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
Lip Scrub Gone Wrong
primera - Clean Berry Lip Mask Primera Lip Scrub This is a K-Beauty Lip Scrub that does a great job at exfoliating your lips. It also smells like fake fruit. This is priced reasonably for a lip scrub as well at $20. The texture is like a lip balm with a gritty texture and when you apply it on the lips you can feel the grittiness exfoliating your lips. It feels like it really does a great job at that and helps get all the excess skin off of your lips. I would rate this as a 7/10. It does the job but it's not my favorite. It's really gritty and I don't really like gritty textures that much so it's a no for me for sure. I also think the smell is odd for it being so close to your lips. I don't think I would go by this again at all.
primera-Clean Berry Lip Mask
Cult favorite K-Beauty
LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask PRODUCT With its mix of vitamin C, antioxidants, Hyaluronic acid, and exclusive moisture wrap technology, this cult favorite lip mask deserves all the praise it gets. This lip mask is targeted towards people with extremely dry lips, even though I don’t have characteristically dry lips, I use this daily. It has a very thick consistency (see second picture for reference), which I do not find to be sticky at all. It comes in several flavors, my favorite is the Grapefruit, but the original Berry flavor is great as well. EXPERIENCE After hearing about this mask all over social media, I decided that I had to try it to myself. I have had this lip mask in my collection for close to two years and I use it every single night. It’s honestly the greatest product I’ve come across to combat dry lips. I apply a thick layer on at night and wake up with mask still on (note: I’m a face sleeper, so this is amazing in and of itself). If I feel that my lips are dry throughout the day, I’ll apply a light layer on and it’s enough to get me through until night time. This is also great under any sort of lipstick, especially ones that are drier. I recommend this to anyone who asks me about products to use for dry lips, and I’ve found that this works well pretty universally. This product retails for $20 and even using it every day, it’s lasted me about a year and a half. I give this product a 5/5 star rating!

DIY lip scrub
Okay, I don’t have a lip scrub 🤣 I super rudimentary with this, I only use lip scrub when my lips are chapped and this season is when it comes in handy I mixed the lip mask with sugar and rub it gently on my lips 👄 the lip mask is super hydrated and smooth, so it doesn’t hurt my lips when I rub the sugar, and if you ask me, yes I licked it 🤣 then wipe it off with a cloth or tissue paper Works wonder with me, and at home LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask

Laneige Lip Sleeping Masks
LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask #liptalk The Laneige lip sleeping masks are my absolute favourite way to keep my lips soft, smooth and hydrated! I have gone through so many of these - they are my go-to for day and night - I don’t just use these when I’m sleeping, I like using them during the day as well for a nice glossy pout. I love that it doubles up as a nice glossy look for day as well while still working on keeping my lips ultra hydrated, smooth and shiny! To get my collection of backups, I bought a couple Laneige sets from Sephora that were a really incredible deal - they had a full sized mask in the classic berry flavour and for only a couple extra dollars the set came with 3 additional mini sized ones in different flavours to try out! I also love the little wand that comes with it - it makes it so quick and easy to swipe up some product and apply it in a clean and sanitary way without having to stick your fingers in the jar 🙌🏻🤍 All the flavours are really great and they come in: Vanilla, Berry, Grapefruit and Apple Lime! I love them all and I keep changing my mind as to which one is my favourite 🙈 but as of right now, I think grapefruit and vanilla are my favourites! 🥰🤍
LANEIGE-LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
Best lip balm ever ✨👏🏼🥰
Does this product need an intro?! I love the Laneige Lip Mask and it’s hands down my favorite k-beauty product EVER. I’ve been through 4! They are so hydrating, not too sticky and leaves a nice gloss to your lips! I use it as a normal lip balm multiple times through out the day. It works as a mask but it’s not pillow proof! It has a thick, slick texture like any normal lip balm. It’s amazing for dry chapped lips any time of the year... especially winter! I would definitely repurchase this! I’ve tried Apple lime, grapefruit, berry, vanilla and sweet candy. My favorite hands down is sweet candy... it’s a sweet fruity candle smell but not too sweet. Also bonus but the lip balm is amazing amazing, pretty similar formula..: maybe a hint thinner and it’s packaging is more handbag friendly. LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
LANEIGE-LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask
LANEIGE - LANEIGE Lip Sleeping Mask I first got this product when it launched with the original berry flavor. Since purchasing this product, I have repurchased this a few times. It is definitely my tried true lip sleeping mask. The smell of vanilla is a little something extra that makes me fall in love with this product more. It's a very soft vanilla scent that helps soothe the mind. The texture of this is thick and smooth and glides onto the lips effortlessly. One of the things I really love about this product is that it only comes in a little jar that's 0.7oz but it seems like it lasts forever because you don't need very much of the product for it to coat the lips and keeps it coated until you wake up. It is one of the most moisturizing lip products I have ever tried and I even use it during the day. Something really cool about this product is that Laneige is using a very cool technology in this product which they call Moisture Wrap. This is a technology that is abundant in beta-guclan that actually time releases moistures over an 8 hour time period. This means that it is constantly moisturizing your lips of that time span where as most lip masks or lip balms just moisturize for a short span of time before you have to reapply. This product is also rich in vitamin C and antioxidants for different types of berries that help soothe and leave your lips soft and supple and never cracked. It's great for anybody to use and I would recommend it to everyone because nobody likes chapped lips. You can find this product on the Sephora website for $20.00 USD and $20 might seem a lot for this little product. But believe me, it is worth it, it's a great k-beauty skincare product and you will definitely get your money's worth out of it.
