Besides following the storyline closely, and empathising with the leading characters, we’re sure many of us have our eyes on the makeup looks of our favourite K-drama actresses. If you’ve been wondering which exact lip colour Kim Go-Eun wore in Gobin or what foundation Jun Ji Hyun used in My Love from the Star, you’re on the right article!

Lipstick Kim Go-Eun wore in Goblin

Kim Go-Eun plays high school student Ji Eun-Tak in popular drama serial Goblin. She is known to wear barely-there makeup that shows off her flawless skin. But the one feature that stood out to the audience is her lips, particularly the look that she sported on her first day at university. This pretty and wearable shade looks like something any of us could pull off.

The product: Lancome L’absolu Rouge in #264 Peut-Etre. Unfortunately, this specific shade doesn’t seem to be available in Singapore. The closest shade that we can find locally is probably #295 Cafe Parisien (S$46). Compare it for yourself:
