Amore Pacific is one of the largest cosmetics company in the world, with 33 health, beauty, and personal care brands. Among them are Laneige and Mamonde. Here are some of my new K-Beauty favorites from these exceptional brands.
Let’s Talk About Laneige!
Laneige is all about hydration, confidence and serious skincare but with a youthful vibe. Here are some of my new favorite products from this lovely brand:
BB Cushion Pore Blur SPF 50+
I really love the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Blur SPF 50+ ($38). It is a multi-tasking hydrating sunblock SPF 50+ that controls oil and adds a hint of tint–it works supremely well. Actives are 7% Octinoxate. 4.15% Titanium Dioxide and 9.8% Zinc Oxide
The mirrored compact has a sponge-y cushion into which the BB cream is infused. Press on the cushion and the product is transferred to the included applicator sponge. You even get a free refill (two for one price)!.
A Pore Minimizing™ blend of Pine Needle and Mint Water keeps normal to oily skin fresh with a semi-matte finish. Good to know that LANEIGE doesn’t test on animals and the products are free of Parabens and Phthalates.
I like the fact that there is a range of color and tone. There are color choices (3 light to medium, 3 medium to deep). I tried No 23 (sand) for light to medium skin and a neutral tone. It definitely minimized oil and pores, essential on hot and humid days.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask:
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask has a funny name, but the attractively-packaged pot of lip balm is a leave-on “lip mask” to wear overnight, tackling dryness and fine lines. Swipe on some of this super-hydrating balm (with the included silicone spatula) and the moisture-rich beta-glucan coats your lips with an 8-hour time-release moisturizing layer.
There are a lot of ingredients to nourish and hydrate your skin in this little screw-top jar with an inner sea. However, the star is the Berry Mix Complex™: Rich in vitamin C and antioxidants from raspberries, strawberries, cranberries, goji berries, and blueberries,
There are a number of scents to choose from, but I tried original (unscented, in my photo above) and Vanilla. Both are clear on your lips, but I like the vanilla scent more for daytime and unscented at night.
Speaking of which, while this is a night treatment (you wipe off any residue in the morning) I’m using this as well during the daytime as well to help my still-Winter-weary lips feel better.
Laneige Two-Toned Lipsticks:
Once your lips are back into soft and kissable shape, try one of the fun and flirty Laneige Two-toned Lipsticks ($27/each) and make a colorful statement! the slide on the side pushes up an angled rectangle of lipstick in two colors that blend into one silky, moist, sexy shade.
There are eight beautiful color blends that offer an ombre effect. I tried “No.11 Juicy Pop,” a Light Pink Coral and Yellow that blend into a bright coral tone that is just perfect for Summer.
My second pick was ” No.1 Magenta Muse.” This one turns into a glorious rosed-tinted lipstick Rosey Magenta. Laneige says these are semi-matte but they are so moist looking I really disagree, they’re mostly moist and somewhat matte.
But…the highly pigmented colors are so intense that when the lipstick starts to wear off, there is still some residue like a lip stain. The angled lipstick and slider make these lipsticks, unique and fun fun fun to use! Grab your favorite colors!
Laneige Toner and Moisturizer:
Laneige Mousse Moisturizer and Toner are really for any type of skin but particularly good if you have sensitive skin, redness or oil. Deep sea water and polyphenols from lychee peel extract are full of skin-loving nutrients.
The Fresh Calming Mousse moisturizer ($39) features a pump top that dispenses a light as air lotion that instantly sinks into the skin, offering hydration and softening.
One or two pumps day and evening will help make your skin look it’s best. In the warmer months, you don’t want to wear heavy moisturizer that can cause breakouts and leave skin looking overly shiny. This one does a mammoth job without any residue.
The Fresh Calming Toner ($27) looks so lovely in a peach gradient-tinted acrylic bottle but it’s all business inside this feminine facade.
Soak a cotton pad with the toner, sweep it on your skin, and then use your hands to “pat” it in. If you are hesitant to use toner because it’s too drying or harsh, this one will be your new best skincare friend.
The same skin-loving nutrients in the moisturizer are in the toner. This is a toner you’ll really want to use!

Learn About Mamonde:
“Mamonde” translates to “my world” in French. Now it’s available in your world if you live in the United States, with an exclusive new skincare collection available at ULTA and online featuring floral scents and luxurious formulas. Mamonde is known for gentle skincare using natural floral essences.
Mamonde Overnight Sleeping Mask:
After the beach, pool, at night, or anytime, the clear and shiny Lip Sleeping Mask by Mamonde is your new best friend. This pot of balm can be used daytime but it also is an overnight lip treatment.
Mamonde Sleeping Mask Plum Blossom ($14) has an antioxidant-rich plum blossom extract, shea, and muru muru butters.
The silk balm is Vegan certified with a very very slight floral scent. Great for travel or your tote bag, this one is just a lovely little pampering treat I just had to mention!
