You know a makeup trend is hot when the Koreans are in on it, and these days color correction and contouring is as basic as drawing the brows or applying mascara. There are plenty of options available in the market, but Laneige ups the game with their innovative two-toned cream bars that are convenient to carry, easy to apply and work on multiple issues at a time. The best part, is these Laneige Two Tone Correcting and Contouring Bars layer perfectly underneath a cushion foundation!

Next up, there are 2 Laneige Two Tone Contouring Bars. These are fairly intuitive, and are meant to be used under the cheekbones, along the jaw and temples to give the illusion of a smaller and more sculpted face.

Although I found it extremely easy to blend these out using my fingers, Laneige has also introduced a blending brush for those who prefer not to dirty their hands. Of course, you can use your own foundation brush or sponges as you desire.

More importantly, the shades and pigmentation are just perfect for a subtle everyday wearable look. These are out at all Laneige counters now, so please stop by and check them out for yourself!
