Comparison Review of Overnight Mask for Lips: Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, Primera Natural Berry Lip Mask, and Petitfee Oil Blossom Lip Mask in Sea Buckthorn Oil


Lip sleeping mask is trending now, ever since Laneige introduces this new concept of overnight mask for the lips. Many brands like Primera, Innisfree, Petitfee, Aritaum, Lirikos, Mamonde are slowly coming out with their own lip sleeping mask with different texture and flavours.

Today, we are gonna talk about three different lip sleeping masks from Primera, Laneige and Petitfee. I will access whether or not they are effective, and how they differ from each other in term of consistency, efficacy and formulation.


Above are the lip masks I carry at the moment. I might try out Innisfree, Lirikos or Huxley ones in the future but for the time being, let's focus on these three. Out of all these, Laneige is the most well-known and raved. Primera is known for its use of natural ingredients whereas Petitfee is much cheaper than the other two.

TEXTURE



Consistency-wise:

  • Laneige is the lightest in term of consistency. It feels very "watery", gellish and creamy on the lips. It doesn't have any taste even if you accidentally lick your lips. The pink version smells like sweet berries.
  • Primera is the second lightest in term of consistency. However, it contains more oil than water, hence feels like balm instead of lightweight gel or oil on the lips. It smells like some kind of sweet herbs.
  • Petitfee feels like solidified butter which is pretty buttery and thick in consistency. It is not sticky or heavy but it is not the easiest to spread if compared to the rest. It smells floral.

SWATCHING TEST


Laneige dries down with a shiny and moist finish. Primera feels like oil balm or ointment when applied whereas Petitfee sinks completely into the skin. Primera is the stickiest out of all three whereas Petitfee feels barely applied.

INGREDIENTS ANALYSIS
(COMPARISON)



Major ingredients are diisostearyl malate, hydrogenated polyisobutene, ceramide III, hydrogenated C6-14 olefin polymer, waxes, and so on, and these are shared across all lip masks. I think these are the ingredients that give these lip masks its unique moisture wrapping consistency for the lips. Among these, hydrogenated polyisobutene is used as a less controversial substitute for mineral oil with waterproof and moisture-trapping properties.

Skincare ingredients such as shea butter, muru-muru butter, and so on nourishing ingredients are found across all formulations.

Laneige contains pigment ingredient such as mica to add more glossiness to the finish. It also contains loads of berries extract such as strawberry, cranberry, raspberry, blueberry, cloudberry, and so on for added antioxidizing benefits. These also have vitamin C components to brighten up the lips. Quinoa, sodium hyaluronate, beta glucan, and so on are also added to plump up the lips for added elasticity.

Primera retains some ingredients that Laneige has, but it also some other ones like squalane, peach leaf extract, bilberry extract, sea buckthorn extract, rice bran wax, and so on. The ingredients are less focused but you can see antioxidants like bilberry, sea buckthorn and several other flower extracts.

Finally, Petitfee has different extracts added if compared to the rest, but its main ingredient, which are the emollients, emulsifiers and waxes are more or less the same as the previous two. In term of skincare ingredients, Petitfee carries turmeric extract, false daisy extract, neem extract, coral seaweed extract, which share the similarities of being a decent anti-inflammatory ingredient. Sea buckthorn oil, a berry extract with natural exfoliating benefits are also added for added brightening, smoothing and anti-aging benefits. There are also tonnes of botanical oils like jojoba oil, argan oil, macadamia oil, white meadowfoam oil and so on to provide moisturizing and lips nourishing benefits.

PERFORMANCE


Anyone who follows my blog and Instagram knows that I have sensitive and easily-cracked lips. It will detest almost every form of products that I put on it, including lip tint, lipstick and even lip balm. So far, only Hada Labo and Mentholatum Pure lip balms work fine on my lips, the rest fail.

As such, these lip masks do not get along well with my lips either. I am not sure does Laneige reformulate its lip sleeping mask but its current formulation seems to work fine on my lips whereas its older version that I got 2 years ago does not. Primera feels really drying on my lips and Pettifee feels indifferent whether or not I am applying it.

Many people report seeing smoother and brighter lips with Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask which I believe is true. It contains loads of vitamin C enriched berries to achieve those intended benefits. And it is lightweight yet creamy enough to soften and moisturize your lips overtime.

I am a bit disappointed with the overall performance of Primera. I have good first impression on it but somehow it fails to impress me over time. I even find it really drying and uncomfortable on my lips after using it for about 5-6 months. As for Petitfee, I think it is a good budgetary option but I would recommend that you check out Laneige one if you have more budget.

CONCLUSION


Lip sleeping mask fails me. Laneige one fails me less, and has better consistency but I still don't see great results like everybody else's. I might get the Apple Lime one, or try out Huxley lip balm later. Innisfree also just came out with a lip sleeping mask which I might consider trying too. Not sure if I should still venture in this whole lip sleeping mask thing, since I don't find them useful or impressive but as a junkee, I might. Who knows?
