I like these LB's, and they are really great for when you are on the go. The color reminds me of a less severe benetint. It is flattering and brings a brightness to my entire face. If only the little pots weren't so damn annoying... That's why I gave it a four; poor packaging. Nevertheless, they are very moisturizing and really are like silky butter. Will repurchase when it runs out, which won't be too soon.
Oh, Korres Lip Butter. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways! ;)
You impart just the right amount of color to my lips in a way that looks completely natural (even though my entire face is perpetually pale).
You have a pleasant, light scent that isn't overpowering (which is especially important for any product designed to be used on one's face).
And, most importantly, you keep my lips soft and hydrated (and therefore have the power to totally save my butt when I haven't been drinking enough water).
At $12 a jar, you are expensive, but you are a well-spent $12 at that! :)
Honestly, I really tried to love this product because it had rave reviews. I tried it out on multiple occasions at Sephora. I was hesistant to buy it because of the hefty price tag, until this Christmas sale of $10 for lip butter and lotion. The product is moisturizing when comparing it to lipsticks. But as a balm or salve, it is frustrating to use. The pot gets the colored product all over your hands in application. Color-wise it is not that awesome as a lipstick. As a lip balm, it is expensive and messy. It usually requires application with a mirror, as getting it all over your lips shows.
I do not recommend buying this product. Spend $6 for the Smith's Rose Salve as a lip balm. Or get a Revlon lipstick, moisturizing and rich color selection, for $7. The butter lotion is fabulous though, expensive still.
This is my HG balm. I love everything about it--the color, the smell, the way it hydrates my poor, sad lips. I have one of these in each of my purses and another on my counter. I like it that much. I have rosy, pale skin with very pigmented lips. This wakes up my face and makes me look like I might have put in a little effort, even when I haven't. I am partial to coral lipsticks as well, and this serves as a lovely base for those lipsticks. I will buy this until they stop making it. (Heaven forbid!)
I had been eyeing this lip butter for about a year but with my college student budget it is a little pricey for a lip balm, until one day I just decided to purchase it and I'm happy I did. I purchased the color 'pomegranate' it is a sheer coral-pink color. For the last 7 months I have had very dry lips. To combat the problem I tried high-end to drug store lip balms most worked for days to a couple of weeks, but in the end the dryness kept coming back; until I tried this product my lips are finally hydrated and smooth. In addition, this lip butter is great for when I have early morning classes or want a natural makeup look it gives just the right amount of color to my face. Will purchase another one in the future.
i love this lip balm - it's super moisturising, it smells really yummy and it leaves a healthy, sheer red tint to my lips. i hate dipping my fingers into pots for any product but for this, i can overlook it :)
I thought this product was very average, didn't make my lips feel any better than any cheap lip balm in a pot does. I didn't think the color was nice, flattering or unique and I would prefer if it was more pigmented. I don't have sensitive lips so even if this lip butter was more moisturizing/gentle than other similar products I probably wouldn't notice so I can't comment on that but there must be a reason it has such a high rating. I actually prefer the Sleek pout polishes so this was a waste of money for me.
It does give your lips a healthy glow and a nice shiny finish, it isn't sticky and it applies nicely. I am not a fan of the scent either though which is a shame because it is very noticeable.. The only thing I really like about it is the packaging, not the fact that it's in a pot but the pot itself, it is made of plastic but still feels sturdy and looks nice.
Loving this for late summer/early fall. I'm pretty tan, with black hair and blue/green eyes. This is a pretty color, but I'm not absolutely in love with it. Sometimes it looks great, othertimes not. I don't know if I'll be able to use this further on in the fall/winter, but for now it's pretty good.
I honestly just love how easy it is. I'm in college, and I don't have time to always apply super glossy lipglosses that can smear all over the place. This is tinted, yet pretty laidback. Although the color is a little dark (I like it to be a little shiny, so apply a little more, which in turn makes it darker), it's wearable right now. I'm looking into trying some other colors, and it's pretty affordable. If anyone can recommend me any colors I might like, please let me know!
Oh I love this lip butter. I think it is actually the first lip butter that I use during the day and not only apply at night. It has a very nice range of colours that are actually wearable colours, the smell is nice but not strong, and the formula is great. It's not too greasy, but it works. It doesn't emphasize dryness, it soothes and protects lips.
Sometimes I even use this lip butter as a blush (though I won't recommend it to people with any other skin than dry and very dry), and it looks great.
Maybe it's not very comfortable to use on the go due to the packaging, but I still love it. Best lip butter so far.
I love this lip butter.I have really dry lips and tried many of the cult favorites but this is the best buy a mile and it has the bonus of having tons of color.It has a smooth non-sticky texture and good lasting power.I plan on buying others as the color payoff is amazing and you can never have to many of these.
