LANEIGE Serum Intense Lipstick in Flair Magenta LR08

What possibly be more fascinated than having one of Korean's High-End Brand, Laneige, famous lipstick?

First of all, thanks to Cheon Song-Yi for promoting the high-cult Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick to Korean Drama lover all over the world; this product is totally a hit. Instead of  the worldwide phenomenon Neon Orange YR25, LR08 Flair Magenta is more captivating with its bold Magenta color. 

The Serum Intense Lipstick aka LED Lipstick comes in a very sleek-modern looking clear glass and reflective metallic-packaging. There's only Laneige brand written on the tube whereas brief description of the product and shade at the bottom of the tube is written in Korean. The Serum Intense lipstick has diagonally-cut bullet and white line at the lower part of the tube; to differentiate it with the Silk Intense range. The outer box packaging comes in metallic snow-patterned silver box with product description, color choice, and other related information. There are 20 shades available in a striking-vivid and glossy finish and ranges for about Won 25.000 (or about IDR 300.000 from Yeppopal PO) and weight for 3,5 gr.

For more adherent information about the product, the product's information will be quoted from Laneige Singapore website for more detail as mentioned below:

How it began...


LR 08
Flair Magenta
This sleek-modern lipstick totally captivates the alluring design and bold color of the serum infused lipstick with its build-able, barely-there opaque color and creamy texture with a touch of glossy finish. LR 08 is a striking Yellow-based Magenta shade which is suitable for both Warm-tone or Cool-tone women. It has neither shimmer nor glitter substance over the swipe yet lavishly creates vivid color with glossy finish. The formula leaves a subtle tint behind after several hours or after gently rubbed-off. It also stays for more than 4-6 hours in normal daily activity.  Fragrant-free. 

As you can see, the Serum Intense Lipstick offers diverse vivid shades with major shades from Pink-Red spectrum. The swatch made above (in the Comparison photo) was made from a single swipe, while near-above photo from Makeup-Box is (predictably) made from several swipes to differentiate between each shade compared. FYI, if you ever wonder the other product from the same brand which is the famously Water Drop Tint, offers a lustrous, watery, subtle finish than Serum Intense. It might look 'so vague' comparing to Serum Intense but it creates a demure finish after applied. More review will come soon.

My Verdict?
Nevertheless to say; I love Laneige Serum Intense Lipstick. Period. It creates glamorous Magenta shade in a creamy-glossy finish. Barely seen any glitter or pearly finish on the swipe; in which I love most from a pout (pearly finish makes my lip overly plumped). The bold-opaque color also helps to cover my lips impeccably. Staying power lasts for more than 4-6 hours in normal activity and the serum-infused formula leaves my lips in a smooth-baby-feels-like texture. Amazingly, it doesn't drying up my lip; after several applications I found out it's unnecessary  to apply lip balm beforehand but you might need it to create more kissable lip. It also leaves nice stain afterward and you just need to re-apply if it starts to fade away. After all, the color and formula is suitable both for daily or party look; furthermore it's also suitable for both cold and warm-tone women. The only thing I consider from the product is the obtaining process in which you have to order it online since Laneige Indonesia counter haven't display the product, yet. However, let me adore the captivating allure of this LED lipstick for a moment and I will leave you to read another review of Laneige product from Makeup Box. See you around lovelies
