This gives a very nice natural color and looks very moisturizing on my lip when I first applied it, but the staying power is not very good that after two hours, my lips look dry. Oh well, because of the very nice color it gives, will just put a lip balm before and after.
I bought the set of four lipsticks from Sephora which was a really good deal at $26, normally they retail for $18 each. The set contains this color and natural brown both nice YLBB shades and orange brown a nice light coral red and orange red, a deeper coral shade. The lipsticks are moisturizing and more like a gloss than a lipstick so they don't really last long. I actually bought the set because I wanted the two red shades, however, I find myself reaching more for the natural purple and natural brown shades. Whilst I love these lipsticks, I'm not sure I would repurchase because the price is pretty high for the texture. I paid $22 for a Lancome lipstick that stays on for ages.
I just bought this as part of the Delight Your Lips set like several of the others. This one is definitely my favorite by far. It is the perfect everyday color. I love how glossy and conditioning it is with just the right amount of sheer color.
This is a beautiful, sheer deep rose color lipstick. When I first put it on I immediately though "oh I like this." It goes on very smooth, almost like a lip gloss, and its very sheer, and somewhat buildable. It will never be super pigmented, but it can go from very sheer to somewhat sheer.
Other people said it looked berry on them, but it doesn't look berry on me, its definitely a sheer deep rose. It also has pretty decent staying power for being so sheer and moisturizing.
The smell is very fruity, which you can smell when you first put it on but dissipates pretty quickly. It doesn't have a taste.
I like the fact that it has SPF, but its only SPF 10. I prefer to have something higher than that for during the day. And I like the fact that Korres is more natural than other brands. Ingredients:

Got this in the Delight your Lips-4 mango lipsticks in earthy & warm tones (#36,25,47,52). Totally right up my ally!!!(yellow, NC30-35. Korres wild rose WRF3-fairly pigmented lips) These lippies are amazing! They smell delish, a somewhat faint fruity sweet smell. They are sheer, yet build-able and have a nice non-sticky glossy finish. They are also incredibly MOISTURIZING! I don't use any lip balm underneath and yet my lips are still kissably soft. Also the packaging is lovely. It has a snap lid so there's no chance of it slipping off. It's also kind of heavy as far as l/s goes as the case seems to be made of some metal. I personally enjoy the way it feels in my hand, though ymmv.
Don't let the color in the tube scare you with this one. It looks like it'd be super dark, but it's not. I promise! Once applied it gives me a nice warm berry/natural just bitten lip look. This is quite lovely. It's just deep enough where it's a lovely deep plummy shade, yet still VERY work safe. continued >>
One of my favorite lipsticks ever. buildable color--can either be a slight tint or if applied heavily a natural but bright color. I believe the 'purple' description harkens to what I recall as a very similar product in clinique's 'Different' lipstick in Grape--but never mind, it's a perfect color in my view. Excellent conditioning, and stays on my lips--I can rub them together hours later and feel the smooth mango butter on them. Light, fruity sent. Just.Plain.Perfect.
This is a very nice lipstick in a natural and flattering colour. As the previous reviewers have noted, the colour is definitely not purple. On me, and depending on the light, it can appear either a slightly berry-ish, medium rose or a slightly brown-ish, warm, medium rose. In any case it looks very natural and I can wear it with almost any eyeshadow colour without feeling either overdone, or washed out.
It is also very moisturizing and I do not need to wear lipbalm to keep my lips soft. The scent is fruity, discreet and pleasant.
Overall, I cannot say it's THE perfect lipstick for me (hence the 4 lippies) but I will definitely buy it again.
I absolutely adore this hydrating and buttery soft lipstick. It's so conditioning and the hue is really more like a berry color than a purple. The packaging is pretty and the color lasts. I never thought of trying Korres before but it is a clean lipstick. I would definitely buy again. A great color for the winter days since it hydrates and gives a nice touch of color.
Beautiful, very sheer lipstick that wears like a balm and looks like a gloss with understated shine. Has SPF 10, which is excellent. You do not need lip balm under this at all. Natural purple is more a light, rosy berry than a purple. Since the lipstick is so sheer, the color is very subtle, and reminds me of a mild berry version of Fresh's Rendezvous Point (which is more matte, and more of a traditional lipstick). An excellent spring/summer shade.
