Very few cult-favorite beauty products have brought me as much joy as the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask ($24). Ever since laying my hands on a little tub of it for the first time, it's remained a staple on my bedside table, in my handbag, and on my work desk, just to name a few spots I have them stashed. (Yes, I proudly own several flavors.) I'm obsessed with everything about this lip mask, from its pretty pink packaging to its hydrating, nonsticky texture.

The lip mask is available in classic flavors like Berry and Vanilla, but occasionally, Laneige throws a limited-edition one into the mix. They unveiled Pink Lemonade Swirl last summer (and fans are begging for its return now that it's unavailable). They also brought back Mango due to popular demand and just recently unveiled their newest summer flavor: Watermelon Pop ($24). As you might guess, I wasted no time in getting my hands on these tubs, and I can confidently say that they have become new staples in my everyday routine. Read on for my full review of the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask.

About the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

  • The formula first made its debut in the US in 2015 with its bestselling flavor, Berry.
  • Before introducing seasonal flavors like Watermelon Pop and Mango, the brand had a lineup of four other options: the original Berry, Sweet Candy, Vanilla, and Gummy Bear.
  • Each mask is formulated with hydrating hyaluronic acid, moisture-locking glycerin, and skin-protecting antioxidants.

What I Like About Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask

I've always been the type of person who reaches for fruity scents over the sweet ones, and Pink Lemonade Swirl and Mango were just as delectably summery as I had hoped. The Mango flavor captures the fruit's smell perfectly and the Pink Lemonade Swirl is like sipping on a refreshing glass of the real deal. (I know this sounds annoyingly cliché, but I'm telling it like it is — I swear.)

As for what it looks and feels like: it's a lusciously thick formula with a silky-soft texture and a glossy finish. I agree with our former content director, Macy Cate Williams, who reviewed the original Berry formula and said: "This lip mask isn't sticky or uncomfortable — it glides on smoothly and feels very soothing on my lips." Like her, I'm also a fan of using it instead of a regular lip balm throughout the day. The tiniest amount goes a long way, so even with multiple applications daily, it lasts a while.

What to Consider Before Buying Laneige's New Lip Sleeping Masks

When considering Laneige's new lip sleeping masks, one important factor to keep in mind is the cost. At $24, this balm comes with a higher price tag, and it's worth noting that there are comparable products available at a lower cost. However, the masks' sleek and visually appealing packaging, which has gained significant attention on TikTok with over 250 million views (!) for videos tagged with #laneigelipmask, likely contributes to their premium price point.

It ultimately comes down to personal preference and budget when deciding whether the investment is worthwhile. While I don't make it a habit to purchase these on a regular basis, I do treat myself to one occasionally as a special indulgence — and I urge you to do so, too.
