5 Dupes For The Iconic Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask

Once in a while, a lip product comes along that changes everything. In the 1950s, it was Revlon's Cherries in the Snow lipstick. By the 1970s, Bonne Bell Lip Smackers were in everyone's makeup bag. Today, however, the it-girl lip balm on everyone's nightstand is none other than Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, a K-beauty favorite that's captured millions of hearts (and pouts).

What makes Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask so special is its formula. It's irresistibly soft and satiny while still being ultra-hydrating and nourishing for lips. Plus, it comes in a variety of covetable flavors, from Gummy Bear and Vanilla to Mango and Pink Lemonade. The brand is also known for launching limited-edition holiday varieties, such as Peppermint and Gingersnap.

However, there's one small problem with Laneige: it's on the pricier side, at $24 for less than an ounce of product. This is roughly four times the price of other lip balms, such as Sephora's own Lip Sleeping Mask, which retails for $5 per tube. If you're trying to whittle away at your beauty budget but still want to enjoy the nightly ritual of using this luxury lip balm, don't fret. We've compiled a list of five dupes for the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, including a drugstore fave from Wet n Wild and a K-beauty powerhouse from Frudia. Now, kiss that parched pout goodbye, and prepare to be amazed at how well these dupes deliver soft, kissable lips at a fraction of Laneige's price.

Revolution Beauty Lip Sleeping Mask

Revolution Beauty products are hard to miss at retailers like Ulta, with playful products like I Heart Revolution Tasty Shadow Palette – Avocado and I Heart Revolution x Cocoa Pebbles Lip Gloss. The brand also offers a very tempting (and aptly named) Lip Sleeping Mask.

Revolution Beauty has original masks like Chocolate, Vanilla, and Berry, as well as a trio of limited-edition lip treatments in collaboration with makeup and skincare influencer Jake-Jamie. The Skincare x Jake Lip Mask Collection includes three masks in positively delicious flavors: Cherry Waffle, Sticky Toffee, and Lemon Meringue. The glycerin-based formula is a treat for lips, and reviewers are thrilled with the results. "It's actually quite difficult not to eat them as a dessert. The smell is heavenly," wrote one. "[These] masks really work; my lips are by far more [hydrated] than before." At the time of writing, the set was available for only $6.30 at Revolution Beauty, making each lip balm significantly more affordable than Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask.

Frudia Honey Lip Balm

Just like Laneige, Frudia is a beloved Korean skincare brand that uses botanical extracts to enhance the performance of its products. Frudia emphasizes the power of fruit in its line, and the Frudia Lip Honey Blueberry Lip Balm contains extracts of Jeju blueberry, an antioxidant-packed fruit harvested from Jeju Island in South Korea. In addition to the Blueberry Honey variety, there's also Pomegranate Honey, which has a subtle, reddish tint to its formula. The Blueberry Honey Lip Balm boasts a richer texture with up to 48 hours of lasting hydration for lips, while the Pomegranate Honey is more lightweight and contains both plumping and cooling ingredients.

Each tub of Frudia Honey Lip Balm retails for a little over $8 and contains just over a third of an ounce of product, offering substantial savings in comparison to Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask. The Frudia Blueberry Hydrating Honey is every bit as hydrating as Laneige, though you'll want to grab the Pomegranate variety for a touch of color like Laneige's classic Berry flavor. The Frudia Lip Balm's scent is very mild, with delicate, honeyed notes emanating from each pot. "Great lip balm. Up there with Laneige ... but much cheaper," wrote one reviewer. Plus, we have to admit that we prefer Frudia Lip Balm's adorable, honeypot-shaped tub to Laneige's minimalistic design.

Care:nel Lip Sleeping Mask

If you're looking for a lip treatment that's virtually indistinguishable from Laneige in nearly every way, look no further than the Care:nel Lip Sleeping Mask. The Korean skincare brand is completely cruelty-free and its Lip Sleeping Mask is one of the best dupes for Laneige around. According to reviewers, it not only looks super similar to the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, but the product inside performs exactly the same way, too. In fact, some reviewers say it's even better than the real thing, with one writing, "This is honestly better than the Laneige [Lip] Sleeping Mask. I have been using each one on and off for the past couple of weeks, and this one keeps my lips much more hydrated."

Not only is Care:nel a great dupe for Laneige's Lip Sleeping Mask, but it's also available in Special Lip Sleeping Mask multi-pack that includes its fun, unique Lime flavor. Prices vary for the Care:nel Lip Sleeping Mask, with Asian beauty sites like YesStyle carrying it for as little as $7.50 (at the time of writing) and Amazon carrying it for nearly $14. But whichever price you pay, you'll save at least 40% off of the price of Laneige, as each Care:nel Lip Sleeping Mask is slightly larger than Laneige.

Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Sleeping Lip Mask

Have you even lived if you've never used Wet n Wild beauty products? The brand is known for producing economical alternatives to spendy drugstore items, though you have to be of a certain age to recall its legendary 99-cent lipstick display. The brand has kept up with the times in recent years, and the Wet n Wild Perfect Pout Sleeping Lip Mask has garnered plenty of attention for its similarities to Laneige.

At $4.79 per jar, Wet n Wild's Perfect Pout Sleeping Lip Mask is among the most affordable of the Laneige dupes, but its attractive price isn't its only selling point. Many beauty lovers have raved about its incredible texture and performance, which is no small feat for a modest budget buy. "I consider myself a lip balm snob, and this product blew my mind. It basically replaced my Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask, and that says a lot!" one reviewer stated. 

The standard flavor for Wet n Wild's Lip Mask is Lavender, and this balm features a slightly purple tinge, but the brand has been known to launch limited-edition lip mask options in the past. Keep an eye out for this one next time you're at your local pharmacy or Ulta — you may be pleasantly surprised by what Wet n Wild's little purple jar can do for your pout.

Milani Lip Mask

If you're the type of person who can't get enough rose products in your beauty routine, you won't want to miss out on the Milani Rose Butter Lip Mask. You may be more familiar with Milani's luxurious makeup line, but the brand's Rose Butter Lip Mask is an outstanding dupe for Laneige. It contains a plethora of beneficial ingredients for your pout, from real rose oil, shea, and cupuacu butter to hyaluronic acid.

The most impressive part of Milani's Rose Butter Lip Mask is its massive size — compared to Laneige, Milani's 1.44-ounce jar contains double the amount of product at roughly a third of the price. For around $9 per jar, the rose-infused lip mask can't be beaten. "I have sworn by this product for the last 3 years," said one Rose Butter Lip Mask fan. "It will forever be a product to keep in my purse and in my kit as a freelance makeup artist."

But if rose isn't exactly your bag, you can always try Milani's other overnight treatment, the Supercharged Citrus Lip Mask. The juicy orange balm contains a similar base of shea and cupuacu butter, with the addition of revitalizing turmeric and ginseng root extracts. Reviewers say it's one of the best lip balms for dry, chapped lips, and it's also a great deal at just under ten dollars.
