I’m still salivating over this year’s Christmas collection from Laneige, themed Milkyway Fantasy. There are two limited edition shades for their Two Tone Lip Bar (swatches here), and there are also two limited edition shades for their Two Tone Shadow Bar.
Laneige Two Tone Shadow Bar Milkyway Fantasy edition Christmas 2016 – SGD$38 each

- Milkyway Burgundy: A brighter vibrant reddish-pink with a shimmery very pale light pink.
- Smoky Dust: Dark grey-brown with a lighter champagne shade.
My Thoughts: I’m pretty pleased with Smoky Dust, which is an extremely wearable brown-grey + champagne combi. The brown gets more intense in terms of colour payoff with several shades. Milkyway Burgundy can be for the more adventurous – it’s got a reddish pink (the colour that you see on most Kpop stars). It doesn’t make the eyes look puffy thankfully. Both variants have a lighter shade that can be used on the inner corner of the undereye to brighten up your overall look, or to create aegyo sal. In terms of texure, the Shadow Bar glides on very smoothly without dragging on the skin, and both have sparkly iridescent shimmer specks that don’t fall easily. Note that you might have to apply some primer if you’ve got oily eyelids, as these will smudge out after several hours of wear. To find out more, read my full review on the Two Tone Shadow Bar here.
