Sneak Peek | Missha x Line Friends vs. The Face Shop x Kakao Friends!

Themed makeup collections are all the rage in Korea these days!

Case in point, these newest product offerings from Missha and The Face Shop, two of the most popular Korean cosmetic brands. Coincidentally, both brands tied up with two world-renowned and highly-used mobile messaging services - Line and Kakao Talk, respectively.
Missha vs. The Face Shop! :)
Let's take a closer look at what these collaborations have in store.

Majority of the products in this collection feature Brown the Bear and Sally the Duck; Cony the Rabbit gets the least exposure with only three products designed after it - an eyeshadow palette, some nail stickers, and a hand cream.

In the subsequent launch, we see more of Cony the Rabbit, with the Poptastic Jelly Tints and the Tint Remover in its signature pink color. The second collection was released in Korea first week of March, and includes the following products:
Missha x Line Friends Season 2!
- (Brown) Tension Bluhser in 6 colors

- (Cony) Poptastic Jelly Tint in 6 shades
- (Cony) All Clear Tint Remover

Missha x Line Friends Flower Bouquet Cleansing Foam, 5000 won.
Missha x Line Friends Dual Blending Cushion Shadow, 7800 won.
Missha x Line Friends Pop Tastic Jelly Tint, 7800 won.

Missha x Line Friends Tension Blusher, 11800 won.
Missha x Line Friends Time Revolution First Essence, 48000 won
(for a limited time only).
About two weeks after, The Face Shop x Kakao Friends collaboration hit the stores in Korea. The collection includes the following:
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends.
- Natural Sun Eco Baby Mild Sun Cream SPF30 PA++
- Natural Sun Eco No Shine Hydrating Sun Cream SPF40 PA+++
- Natural Sun Eco Photogenic Sun Blur SPF50 PA+++
- Natural Sun Eco Body & Family Mild Sun Milk SPF40 PA+++
- Natural Sun Eco Baby Sunscreen Cushion SPF34 PA++
- Soul Perfume in 4 scents
- Character Mask Sheet in 5 variants
- Hand Cream in 5 scents
- Dual Veil Concealer in 4 shades
- Melting Color Lip Creamer in 5 colors
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Dual Veil Concealer, 10900 won.
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Melting Color Lip Creamer, 8000 won.
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Mask Sheet, 2500 won.
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Sunscreen line, 12900 - 18900 won.
The Face Shop x Kakao Friends Soul Perfume, 14900 won.
This actually isn't the first time for Kakao Friends to tie-up with a cosmetic brand. Its first collaboration project came out May last year, with VDL as its project partner. Both VDL and The Face Shop are beauty brands under the LG Group, with the latter being the more popular between the two. (Which, in turn, explains Kakao Friends' move from one brand to another.)

It's interesting how these limited edition collections will go head to head in the retail battle. Personally, I am leaning towards Missha as they have a lot more to offer in terms of variety. But who knows, The Face Shop could be launching the second edition in the weeks to come with an even wider range of products. My eyes are peeled! :)
