I am currently obsessed with lip products. Why? Because lip products in Korea tend to be better than their European counterparts. For one, the range of products is HUGE. When we can decide in Europe between lipstick or gloss, you can chose between a variety of consistency and colors: lip waters, tints, milks, stick, gloss... I also find the color variation is better, I just enjoy trying out a lot of different colors!
I was actually looking for an orange color not too long ago but couldn't decide on anything... and I also wasn't sure if orange would suit me as I have mostly cool undertones. But when I slept over at my friend's place she -out of the blue- gave me a orange-reddish lipcolor as a gift! One of her friends works for the beauty department at LG and she often comes home with all kinds of beauty goodies before they get released for real. Dream job, anyone..? The lip product she gifted me was the relatively new brand Code Glökolor Double Lip, which belongs to the LG Household company and will be the main protagonist in this review :)
Glökolor is a relatively new brand (spring 2014 as far as I could read the Korean news..) that focuses mainly on lip products - and without wanting to spoil, my favorite brand when it comes to Korean lip products so far! The image is def. a bit Northern Europe, without any frills and the name itself looks as if it could be Swedish. (Rep says the name comes from "Glow" and "Color"... not sure what the German "ö" is doing there, but okay, gonna be creative I guess.) What I love about this brand: All their products are insanely pigmented! They basically have around 8 to 10 colors in different versions: As lip tint, which has a glossy finish, lip milks, lipsticks or the double lip which I personally think is closest to being a lip pigment and dries quite matte as you can see in the picture. They range from 12,000 - 19,000 Won.
