Want to look like Song Hye Kyo? Laneige has unveiled its 2014 colour make up series – a comprehensive range of eye shadow palettes, blushers and lipsticks that can help you achieve a ‘natural Korean beauty’ look! I was very lucky to preview the collection at a cozy event held at Full House, and also get my hands on the newly launched Laneige make up. :)
Stars of the show: 7 highly-pigented Pure Radiant Shadow palettes; 6 Pure Radiant Blush colours and 20 vivid Serum Intense Lipstick colours! We were tasked to ‘shop’ for one of each to bring home in our goody bags. Why ‘tasked’? Because it was such difficult decisions!! Let’s have a look at the collection and the products I picked.
Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow Palettes ($40.00)
The Laneige Pure Radiant Shadow are high-pigmented colour shades made with ultra-fine, consistent powder that glides on smoothly and evenly. I love how the glitters are elegant and not over the top.
I picked No.1 Urban Beige as it is very versatile and classy. The second colour you see on the Urban Beige palette is actually more of a champagne pink than brown, which is great for me as I can’t use too much pink, nor too much brown.
Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick ($34.00)
Super amazed by the colection of Serum Intense Lipstick colours! I WANT THEM ALL, haha, but in the end I chose LR05 Flash Pink! How about you, which has caught your eye?
Swatches of 6 of my favourite colours. They are all very creamy, and contains 3 types of moisture-sealing and 35% skincare ingredients that protect the lips. Say goodbye to cracked lips!
Laneige Pure Radiant Blush ($38.00)
Laneige’s Pure Radiant Blush gives a very natural and radiant finish due to its extra fine powder particles. The fine particles also fill in any wrinkles to reflect light evenly, and that gives you that smooth and bouncy cheeks. ;) I picked No.1 Chi Chi Pink.
More on the products later, but now check out how Laneige’s Makeup Artist & Global Trainer, Cat Koh, created a natural Korean look with the Spring/Summer makeup collection!
Cat flew in specially from South Korea to showcase the collection and we are so honoured to have her here! She’s got such a bubbly and adorable personality and the make up demonstration was full of laughter! :)
Before: Model ShanShan, Laneige’s Brighten Up Global Beauty Camp Singapore Ambassador, with eye make up and ‘Aegyo Sal’ on the right eye. ‘Aegyo Sal’ is the Korean trend of having puffy eye bags! Well, they aren’t really eye bags, but a layer of skin on the lower eyelid that gives this youthful and friendly look!
The end result: Cat did her magic with the Spring/Summer make up palettes, and completing the make up demonstration with Laneige’s BB Cushion. That BB Cushion is the bomb! It totally lifted the makeup with a dewy layer, creating a bright, smooth and translucent complexion.
ShanShan with Cat. We were all watching in awe at how Korean ShanShan looked after filling in brows, contouring and highlighting.
We couldn’t wait to get dolled up in the new palettes, and Laneige indulged us with make up artists on site. Hiak hiak, pampering time!
My Korean-inspired look done by the MUA that day :) I find that my features were soften by the colours used.
Thank you Laneige and WOM for the invite to the event! I couldn’t wait to play with the make up, check out below for a look I re-created with the products I got.

I really really love the LR05 Flash Pink lippie!! x
