Sail away with LANEIGE Summer 2016 Collection: Review, Swatches & Makeup Look

“Life’s roughest storms prove the strength of our anchors.”
Summer is approaching, how are you planning to spend it? For me, I’m going to take every step as it comes, and see what happens. After all, even if you’re at the lowest point in a ferris wheel, wait it out and you’ll be at the top in no time again. Life’s full of ups and downs, isn’t it?
Anyway, the warming weather heralds the beginning of Summer, and what better way to welcome the season with some nautical goodness? LANEIGE Summer 2016 Collection is here to warm your hearts!
The vibrant collection features a brand new Sparkling Body Cushion, some marine themed nail polishes and a 6-coloured eyeshadow palette. The beautiful sparkling shades scream happiness, don’t they?

Famous for its BB cushions, K-beauty giant LANEIGE, creates an innovative product for the body to add to its range of cushions! If you’re going to be heading the beaches and want to have sparkly shiny skin that other bikini girls can be jealous of, the Sparkling Body Cushion will do the trick!
The body cushion aims to provide you with moisturising and cooling effects while the sparkly pigments in the formula provide a subtle glow to the skin, making you feel like a bikini goddess at the beach!
With rose gold pearl, the formula makes the skin glow with its contour highlighting effect while sparkling water and aloe provide moisture to tired and thirsty skin. When applied, you can really feel the subtle cooling effects! Since the cushion is meant for the body, a big-sized ruby cell puff allows you to apply faster and easier.
Besides, the fresh floral woody musk scent provides a pleasant feel and makes you smell good all day even at the beach! I’ve swatched it on the back of my hand and was surprised at the subtle sheen it gives the skin! Not sure if you can see it but try it and you’ll understand what I mean.
Complete your summer nails with the LANEIGE Marine Nail Kit! With four nautical-inspired shades and a pack of nail stickers, express your creativity and get funky! I deliberately chose the colour scheme for my gel manicure to suit the theme for this collection, beautiful, isn’t it? 😉
4 trendy shades, infinite nail looks! With luster like glass beads, expect a shiny coat of colour on the nails. The kit also consists of deco stickers, stencils and line stickers that even a novice can create nail art like what nail artists can do! I love the little bikini and sandals, aren’t they cute?
The highlight of the collection in my opinion, has to be the LANEIGE Marine Girl Boy Eyeshadow Palette! Just look at the white, blue and red striped packaging with cute sandals and life buoy! It just spells S-U-M-M-E-R isn’t it! Packaging is what keeps my heart throbbing so… 😛
Teehee, do you see what I see? I think my precious baby, Sake, sees it! He sees the beautiful vibrant shades of the eyeshadow palette! Notice the little anchor? It’s in a gold overspray so pretty I made sure I was careful not to swatch over it hahaha.
If you want to attain a summer makeup look full of vitality, these six colours will sure do the trick. The colours are trendy and vibrant (oh just look at the pop of blue and pink!) and are named after vacation spots. It would be good if there was a crease shade but still, looks can be made with the varying textures like matte, pearl and shimmer.
The 6 shades are:
  • Hyams Beach – shimmer cream
  • Boracay Emerald – light shimmer mermaid blue
  • Summer Serenity – matte vibrant sea blue
  • Singapore Sling Pink – matte vibrant peach pink
  • Rose Salt Recipe – light rose shimmer pink
  • Hanoi Bouquet – matte beige
Here’s my Summer makeup look with all shades being used. I have Rose Salt Recipe as base with Singapore Sling Pink at the outer corners of the eye lids. As Summer Serenity is a very strong blue shade, I’ve used it on the outer part of the lower lash line to give it a pop of colour. Boracay Emerald was used in the inner part of the lower lash line while Hyams Beach on the inner eye corners, for that aegyo sal (teary-eyed) effect. Placed Hanoi Bouquet below the brow bone to finish the look.
안녕 (Annyeong)!~ How do you like my LANEIGE Summer 2016 makeup look? I’ve used a sweet coral shade to complement the eyes for a fresher boost to the entire look!
Since Summer is here, what are your plans? 😉 Pop on your own Summer makeup to sail you through the season with a bang! Ship ahoy!~

XOXO, Roanna.

  1. Thank you so much for your review and swatches of the palette. I was wondering if I should buy it. I have a question, is the green shimmer really pigment green??? That is my favorite color and I’m looking forward to it. Therefore, I don’t to be disappoint.
