Overnight lip masks have become an essential part of my bedtime routine in the past few years. These ultra-hydrating lip treatments are ideal for getting that soft, pouty look. I initially fell in love with lip masks when I discovered the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, one of the most popular lip masks on the scene. Last year, I started seeing a lot of content creators sharing the Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask and decided I had to try it out as well. Both products come highly recommended and after a few months use of the Tatcha mask, I wanted to share a little face-off comparing the two masks.
Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask
- The Laneige mask seems to last a bit longer. When I wake up in the morning, it feels like I practically have the same amount of product on my lips, even when I have a cold and I’m a mouth-breather.
- This mask is now available in multiple “flavors” so you can pick one that suits your fancy. I’ve only tried the original, but want to scoop up the “Vanilla” next. It’s also available in “Apple Lime” and “Sweet Candy”. The original seems to maybe have a berry scent.
- There’s no sticky consistency to this. It’s thick and luxurious, but smooth. Truly dreamy.
- This seriously works for dry lips and fine lines.
- The product is free of parabens and phthalates.
- One tub of this will last you FOR-EV-ER. Seriously, I used it nightly (and sometimes during the day) for a year before getting halfway through the tub.
- Though the smell isn’t bad, it might be a little much for some. It’s definitely reminiscent of a middle school product for me.
- Aside from moisturizing, I didn’t see any additional benefits. This mask won’t plump your lips.
- The lip brush that comes with this mask just seems to get sticky and dirty, so if you have long nails or once you get further down in the tub, your fingers are going to be messy when applying this.
- Looking at the ingredient list, there aren’t a ton of recognizable products that have tangible benefits.
Overall, I would give this product a 9/10. You can buy the Laneige mask here.
Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask
- The packaging of this product is beautiful and so chic.
- This mask definitely adds moisture and helps with fine lines, but it also adds some plumpness to my lips.
- All Tatcha products are clean so if you’re looking to go green with your beauty products, this is a great line for you! It’s also vegan and cruelty-free. A major bonus!
- Similar to the Laneige mask, a little goes a very long way.
- There’s no artificial scent. In a way, the Tatcha mask feels more “mature” than the Laneige.
- The gold applicator that comes with the Tatcha Kissu Mask is easier to use and keep clean – you can get all of the product off without leaving behind sticky residue.
- Comparatively, the Tatcha mask is more expensive (currently priced at $28 while Laneige is $20).
- Similarly, the Kissu Lip Mask has about half the amount of product (0.32 oz. compared to 0.7 oz. in the Laneige)
- The Tatcha mask doesn’t seem to be quite as long-lasting. When I wake up in the morning, most of the product seems to have been absorbed. However, my lips do not feel dry in the morning, so this is definitely doing it’s job.
Overall, I would give this product an 8.5/10. You can buy the Tatcha Kissu Lip Mask here.
In all honesty, I love both masks and will probably continue to use both, swapping back and forth. Depending on what you’re looking for (more bang for your buck or something with less scent and more clean ingredients) you’re sure to fall in love with one of these overnight products.
I have a few other lip masks that I want to try next like the Milk Makeup Melatonin Overnight Lip Mask or Primera Clean Berry Lip Mask. Have you tried any of these lip masks? Let me know your favorite in the comments! x
