If, like us, you happen to be both a beauty buff and Korean drama fan, Laneige’s Silk Intense Lipstick is a happy marriage of your two abiding passions in a handy tube – and now we have six new shades from the collection to play with!

Nicknamed “Song Hye Kyo’s lipstick” because the lovely leading lady was one of the first starlets to be spotted wearing the product on her puckers in her hit TV series “That Winter, The Wind Blows”, Laneige’s Silk Intense Lipstick would still make the cut for our curated cosmetic case even without the K-Drama connection.

Velvety and lusciously creamy, the moisturising sticks glide on sheer and are buildable for maximum versatility – simply slick on another layer for a bolder look for night, or dial back the drama for a discreet, office-friendly look.

Out of the six new shades available, we’re particularly taken by YR125 Spangle, a zesty medium-shine tangerine that’s perfect for recreating the orange lip that was all over the Spring 2014 runways. SR118 Privilege is another standout for us, being a deep salmon hue that would really pop on English Rose complexions.

The colours Song Hye Kyo wore in her show – SYR36 Beige Chiffon and LR104 Pink Garden – are still available along with a plethora of plums, corals and fuchsias, so head to your nearest Laneige counter to check out the full collection.

Laneige Silk Intense Lipstick, $34, is available in 19 shades at all Laneige boutiques. For more information and to see colour swatches, visit You can follow the brand on Facebook at
