If there is one thing I’ll never tire of / never have enough of its lip products. They’ve been an obsession since my first strawberry chapstick at age three or four (I made a real mess of it at that age, by the way. Tried to color on the wall with it if I remember correctly). Lately, I’ve been in love with these lip butters from Korres. I’ve had one on my desk and in my bag at all times during the past few weeks.
They come in cute little pots (plastic) and I absolutely love their rich buttery texture which moisturizes and gives lips a slight tint that actually lasts quite a long time. They have shea butter and rice wax, as well as safflower seed oil and fruit extracts. They’re free of petrolatum and are cruelty-free but I should mention that they do contain “flavor (aroma)” which may irritate some people (for me it is a case-by-case thing) but I find them subtle and delicious.
The Wild Rose one is admittedly what got me interested in them in the first place. I’m obsessed with all things rose and actually included this one in issue 4 of Sweet Violet Bride. It has the least scent of all of them though, I can barely smell anything but the color is super pretty!!
Guava: Nearly clear, tropical guava scent.
Wild Rose: Rich rose red, barely a scent.
Pomegranate: Rich strawberry/coral pink, sweet berry scent.
Jasmine: Pretty barely there nude pink,sweet candy-like scent.
Wild Rose and Pomegranate are the strongest colors and can be built up to a vivid tint. They’re glossy but not glassy. I love how these wear over time – they really hold their moisture and don’t dry into that horrible line that some lip products can create. Not in my experience at least. These really are a two-in one product as I reach for them if my lips are chapped as much as I do if I want a little color.
I also tried the Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks in Rose, Pink, and Purple. These ones feature mandarin oil and sunflower wax. They all have the same slightly sweet scent. These are $16.50, whereas the lip butters pots are $12.
These are also beautiful and perhaps easier to apply than the pots, but I was surprised that the purple one ins’t really purple but more of a reddish mauve. The rose is very similar to the wild rose pot, and the pink is very sheer, similar to the jasmine pot. They’re a bit more solid in consistency than the pots but still translucent and very moisturizing.
Hopefully this post has helped you if you were trying to decide on whether or not to purchase any of these. I personally love them and am happy they’ve joined my little (ok, not so little) family of lip products. Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend! xo – Naomi*DisclaimerThis post includes some free samples but I do not receive compensation for these posts and I would not be reviewing and recommending these products if I didn't absolutely love them.
