Amorepacific claimed that the Essential Lip-serum Stick from Sulwhasoo increased in demand after appearing on Song Hye Kyo's Boyfriend show

Leading South Korean cosmetics conglomerate Amorepacific, recently claimed that its Essential Lip-serum Stick from Sulwhasoo increased in demand. This, after appearing on popular South Korean actress Song Hye Kyo's Boyfriend, the television show.

The soap, also called Encounter, showed the actress using the lip serum. Post which, its sales flew off the charts.

This, after Song came onboard as Sulwhasoo’s brand ambassador. She first debuted as its muse in April 2018, and was chosen for her inspiring ways and “versatility as an actress with incredible charm," according to a statement.  

Son was previously the face of beauty brand LANEIGE for almost 10 years. She also made an impact on the brand when shooting the popular Korean drama series Descendants of the Sun. She even helped draw media attention to the brand after she wore its makeup in one of the episodes, which became an instant hit in March 2016.

After Boyfriends' actress Song appeared on the hit TV show with shade No. 4 Rose Red from the Lip Serum range, it became an instant online sensation.

The product was first launched in 2015, and comes in a variety of 12 shades, with the latest released being in September being the No. 59 Autumn Red.

According to the brand, the collection is fully formulated with safflower complex and camellia oil, while eliminating dryness and protecting the lips with layers of water and oil. Additionally, the red blossom extract gives a hint of natural tint to the lips.

The lip serum also helps to puck up and give a firmer, and fuller-looking lips, leaving them all vibrant and plump up. Additionally, it brings out the lip's natural vibrancy and enhanced its vitality.

Guaranteed to be a new must-have, it is also great for cooler seasons, as it keeps lips hydrated, while looking all soft and puckered up. Take it from us, even if the gloss is ineffective after two hours, the lips will not be chapped or flaky.

With a strong focus on the lips, the brand also released its Essential Lip Mask in September in two varieties. One to add moisture and another for recovery. But if you don't get your hands on this Song Hye Kyo's Boyfriend star lipstick, worry not. We've got some more options for you.
