After an indie brand review, I’m back with a very hyped product that I’m sure you know of: the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask EX in the original Berry flavor. This comes in other flavors too, such as: Apple Lime, Grapefruit, and Mint Choco. My lips are not chapped or particularly dry, but in colder weather I feel like a lip balm/mask is necessary to prevent water loss and cracking. So, I took advantage of the Black Friday sales and grabbed this insanely popular lip mask.

Where to buy: Available at Yesstyle (reward code: KBEAUTYNOTES for 5% off your order, can be used together with other coupons), StylevanaStyleKorean, and Jolse. These also come in mini sizes if you’d like to give them a try before commiting to the full size.

Price: $10-$20

Volume: 20g

Packaging: Plastic tube with a twist off cap. The product includes a tiny flexible silicone spatula if you’d like to keep things more hygienic.

What is the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

The Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask is designed to be used as an overnight lip treatment for moisturized and visibly smoother lips with Moisture Wrap™ Technology. It contains Berry Fruit Complex™, Murumuru Seed Butter, Shea Butter, and Vitamin C to help nourish and protect the lips from external aggressors.


This leave-on lip mask should be used at PM before going to bed. Simply apply a nice layer covering the whole surface of the lips. The next morning you can use a cotton pad or towel to wipe off the remaining product. This way you add in a bit of a physical exfoliation as well to remove flaky skin and dead skin cells.

You can definitely use this at daytime too for a glossy finish over a lipstick or lip tint!

The mask can be used every night or as often as needed.


It has a sticky consistency like a lip gloss (see my IG video where I swatch it HERE), but it’s not bad in my opinion. For me it’s not uncomfortable, but I know that some don’t like the sticky feeling of lip products.


Sweet and somewhat artificial berry scent. Neither very noticeable nor overly sweet. I quite like it and it doesn’t have any weird taste.

Does the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask really work?

In terms of results, it does leave my lips noticeably soft with a plumper appearance! Gets rid of the flakiness and leaves the texture pretty smooth. The moisturizing effect is definitely there, although I expected my lips to feel more moisturized after removing the mask. I feel like after removing it, the lips go back to how they initially were except for the soft feeling.

If you experience the same thing, it could be because the skin is dehydrated. So, to deeply hydrate my lips I always use a hydrating product (WITHOUT active ingredients) like the A’PIEU Madecassoside Ampoule that I have shared before. But it could be any toner or essence as long as it has a lightweight hydrating consistency.

The mask does a good job at sealing that moisture in and creating a protective layer. Because of its texture it helps prevent the lips from cracking or drying out. Hence, it’s a good idea to use it at daytime too, if you’re usually exposed to harsh weather conditions.

The color of the mask is pink in the jar but actually applies clear.

I think a big part of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask appeal are the different flavors and cute packaging. It has a very eye-catching design. Is it worth it though? Although I do feel that it’s overhyped, it’s a decent product.
