Oooooooh, I love this stuff! It is soft as butter, literally. And lasts forever! Even the cons barely count-- you have to apply carefully or it'll stain outside your lips, and there's always some left on your finger after you apply. This stuff is perfect for you if you hate the way gloss looks on you, but need something as easy as one.
Overall, I find this product wonderful. It feels great on my lips, gives a beautiful pop of colour, and has a lovely scent. I figured instead of writing a book on the topic, I would just break it down into pros and cons. I hope this helps!
- Has a light smell of rose and honey
- Instantly moisturizes the lips and is very easy to spread
- The pigmentation is buildable so you can go sheer or more intense
- Looks great on all skin tones
- Packaging isn't practical and the process is messy. I carry tissues with me when using this product
- Doesn't seem to retain moisture of the lips once the product has worn off
- Can bleed around the edges of the mouth
IN LOVE with this product! This product does everything you want it to. It moisturizes, it perfectly stains your lips, matches casual and fancy dress, has a beautiful sheen to it, applies easily, can travel easy with you and suits all skin tones.
Very moisturising, no flaking, one dot gives me a lovely lip tint. I've repurchased one as a backup, and I've given it as a present to both my sister and my mother. They both loved it, despite thinking that it would be too deep red. Very reasonably priced for the amount you get, and it lasts a long time.
Yep, this stuff is nice. I wasn't a fan of the Wild Rose color/flavor at first, but it's a nice way to get a softer "red lip" look in your day without looking over-made up. It's more wine-y than apple-ey, which is a great, natural take on the red lip. All of the Korres lip butters in "pots" keep my lips chap-free.
Whoever said the look is "glassy" not "glossy" is a genius. It's not sticky like a lot of gloss-products tend to be. Instead it's creamy or buttery or gel-like, or some magical texture that has yet to have a word assigned to it.
Yeah, you have to stick your finger or a brush in there; get over it. The other Korres products for lips suck compared to the classic butters in pots; this is the best way to use them. Yeah, it wears off in like, 2 hours, or even 1. These are travel-sized, and you've always got fingers. Totally worth it. Buy 'em in packs, they're cheaper.
My HG lip product. I was getting tired and bored of lip stains and matte lip sticks, but I am just not a gloss girl. I was looking for something, but I wasn't sure what. Behold Korres lip butter. A dab of this will give you a slightly deep red with a balmy look and feel. But it is buildable; add a gob of this and you will get a dramatic, deep berry red, glassy (but not glossy) look. Gorgeous and demands attention. Or subtle and feminine. It also works nicely over other lip products. Doesn't last long but it is easy to apply and convenient to carry in even the smallest clutch.
As I have noted in other reviews, the Korres lip butters are my HG lip balms. I have very dry lips, so believe me--I am a connoisseur of lip balms. This one bumps up my natural lip shade just a bit and gives a lovely, bitten sort of color. The reason that I can't live without this is that it helps out just about every red lipstick I own. To wear my favorite red lipstick, Gabrielle by Chanel, I put a layer of this on, then a layer of Gabrielle, and then another layer of this. My lipstick stays put for hours and my lips feel quenched. This stuff is great!
I LOVE this!!! I thought it would lack pigmentation, but it is a lot more pigmented than I thought, & the colour is lovely. I also love the consistency of this lip butter, as it isn't thick & I don't feel like I have this huge layer on my lips. I can't stand that...
I also love the packaging. I think it looks so cute & I for one love that it's in a pot. It's just so convenient & this is the kind of thing you can just apply to your lips without a mirror & there's no way you can mess it up (unlike with lipstick). Imo, there's no point in having something in a tube when I'm just going to go in with my finger to smooth it out anyway.
I also like that this has a very subtle rose scent, as I truly cannot stand rose scents. This one is kind of earthy, & I enjoy it.
One thing I do not like however, is the fact that the lid is often so hard to open! It sometimes takes minutes just to open it... However, that may just be the one I have.
In relation to moisture, I have no idea how well this works because I don't get dry lips. I personally just use this for colour. All in all, I will DEFINITELY buy this again, especially since it's so cheap at only $12!! Love <33
I really hope to get this in plum & jasmine also..
EDIT: Just put it on right now because my lips are hurting & it feels amazing... Plus, it's so pigmented, yet so natural-looking. Korres lip butters make my life!!! This is what a real lip butter is. Revlon is CRAP.
I bought this a looong time ago. It just rested on my purse, going with me everywhere, and I didn't use it because I thought it was too dark. How stupid was I. When I found myself with no other lipbalm around, I used this, and I've never gone back, It's just amazing. It really feels like butter, I can feel it being absorbed, and doesn't just "sit" on my lips. It gives a nice coulor for a couple of hours. Short staying power, but it's only a lip balm, and a good one. I'm thinking about buying it in every single colour available.
I bought this to bump my cart over 50 for free shipping and am very glad I did. It's such a neat jelly consistency that i love to put on my lips. And the best part it moisturizes! For my complexion for some reason this color suits me more than Benatint which I have love for I just like this a little more. One is it's cheaper it smells really good and it gives my lips such a nice flush of colour that looks sexy.
It's nice to have pale skin with rosy lips you can't go wrong with that if like me you are pale. All I needed was this and my BB pact and it looked beautiful in a photograph. I'm very happy with it. My lips feel fuller I have no idea if they are but hey it's the feeling that counts. I like that this doesn't dry me out like some products do. The pot I'm not a fan but the consistency of the product is what makes it such a good butter to put it in a tube changes this and you can buy it in a tube but the tub is for me.
I like the smell of roses and this was the colour i was looking for and for 12$ I am very happy with this. It lasts a long time and it has nice colour payoff that you can build or put on top of another colour. I def want to try more of these as I do really luv my lip butter it makes me want to check out there skin care products as well. It actually lasts pretty long too. I haven't had trouble with bleeding but I don't apply it too heavy. This is good stuff that one should def give a try.
