Like all Descendants of the Sun fans, I am sad that the show has come to an end. Before this show, I was not a Korean drama girl. But all my friends were watching the show so I decided to watch one episode to see what the hype was about. One episode led to another and before I knew it, I absolutely love the chemistry between Song Joong-ki and Song Hye-kyo. They are both adorable together. 🙂 Throughout the show, Kang Mo-Yeon (played by Song Hye-kyo) has a natural lip colour. She is usually seen wearing a light pink or coral shade. As most of you would know, Song Hye-kyo is the brand ambassador for Laneige, hence, she uses Laneige products throughout the show. Namely the Laneige Two-tone lip bar and BB cushion.
The lipstick she wears in the elevator scene in episode 1 is none other than the Laneige Two-tone lip bar in No. 11 Juicy Pop. Sadly, Juicy Pop is out of stock throughout Singapore! This reminds me of the time My Love from the Star fans rushed to buy the Cheon Song-yi lipstick aka YSL Rouge Pur Couture #52 Rosy Coral. That particular colour was said to be sold out all across Asia at that time.
Remember the minefield scene in episode 9? The colour used in the above sign would be No. 14. Dear Pink. It’s a pretty combination of red and pink!
I wanted a colour similar to Juicy Pop and eventually settled on No. 6 Pink Step. I was told that Pink Step was selling out really quickly as well. I found that the Two-tone lip bars can be slightly sheer so the colour will change according to your natural lip colour. 😀 My natural lips have a naturally red tint so when I applied Pink Step, it looked almost reddish pink when I built the colour up. However, when worn sheerly, the center of my lips was a bright, medium pink with warm undertones which the outer ages was light peachy pink with warm undertones.
Here is Mo-Yeon/Hye-kyo wearing No. 6 Pink Step in episode 13! It looks like she wore it lightly.
I love how easy it is to achieve gradient lips with this lipstick. Not only is it creamy but it is also really comfortable to wear and easy to apply! I did notice that it emphasized my lip lines and flakes on my lips. I would recommend those with dry lips to exfoilate first and apply lip balm!
If you have been experiencing Descendants of the Sun withdrawal symptoms like I’ve been, perhaps it’s time to pop by the Laneige counter and be lipstick twinsies with Song Hye-kyo. And if my predictions are correct, this lipstick is going to sell out faster than the time it takes for Song Joong Ki to detonate a mine. Be prepared to go to the ends of the earth to find this lipstick. All the best ladies, Song Joong Ki will be proud. 😉
Product was bought at Laneige. This review contains my honest and true opinions.
