After my beloved MAC Slimshine in Gaily was discontinued, I began searching for a suitable replacement--something sheer and not too orange nor too pink--that perfect shade of coral. Well, after quite some time of trial and always error, I tried out Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate. The main difference is in the sheerness (Korres is more sheer), and the flavor (Korres is much more subdued). Pros: Pomegranate looks like a beautiful sheer coral, is not sticky, has a nice natural glossy shine, and tastes fantastic (which to me means no real discernible taste/smell). Cons: like any gloss, the effect is short-lived and the jar packaging is not the most sanitary. Don't think I'll repurchase. The search continues...
I love this color and the way it moisturizers. I have been using it for almost a month. I use it twice a day, once in AM and once in the PM. I had very chapped lips and this helped me take off all the nasty stuff. Now my lips are smooth and the color is just right. You can use a q-tip to apply. That's what I use and it works out fine. I love it and will purchase again.
I really like this product..however I do not love it. I found the colour is much much too bright on my skin so I have to use very sparingly which doesn't allow for a lot of hydration. The fact that its natural is a definite plus though! Next time I'd go with a different colour!
This is a really nice product. I originally wanted the Jasmine shade but no where in Australia stocks it, so I went with pomegranate.
I do find this to be very moisturising despite all the other lip butters I have ever tried which felt very average and did not do much.
I really do love this shade, it gives me a lovely strawberry peach coloured flush to the lips and is shiny without looking like a gloss. Very professional looking. Tends to slough away any dead skin so I apply some of this, leave for 30 mins or so and wipe off then reapply for healthy lush looking lips. Will buy again if I ever run out.
Not very moisturizing. Love the color and how easy it glides onto lips. Tastes and smells good. Wish it came in a stick form. I usually condition my lips with my body shop vitamin e Chapstick before putting this on. When I'm in a rush, I'll usually grab this for fast Colors on my lips!
This is the second Korres lip butter I have purchased. I had the rose one and then read about an actress wearing this one on a movie set and, for some reason, it make me have to have it. The color is subtle and pretty, and the product makes my lips feel comfortable, however, it is not worth the money for the amount of product you get. Also, I am not a fan of pot glosses as they are a bit unsanitary. I am a clean hands fanatic so I can deal with it. Both of these lip butters tend to get forgotten in my collection because they really aren't very special.
I love these lip butters and the sheer colour wash that they give. I find they aren't the most hydrating lip balm I've ever tried but the colour is so pretty I have no complaints.
I really like the color, texture, smell and no-taste aspects of this product, but I did not find it moisturizing at all. So I cannot give it more than a 3 since it is called "lip butter" and does claim to offer "deep hydration" which I don't think it does. And for the price I expect more in this area. I was expecting it to be more like Fresh Sugar lip treatment. I have to use my regular chapstick underneath for it not feel uncomfortably dry. I also dislike the tub container for lip products, in general.
I bought this product because I had seen lots of good reviews on it on youtube. I think it is a good balm which does moisturize my lips, however I would not recommend it for chapped lips as it seemed to remove the dead skin which then just sat on my lips in lumps. I do think it is quite a good lip balm though, and I really do like the colour pay off it gives. The texture is not at all greasy or oily but very smooth buttery and pretty thick in consistency. The smell is a very light, pleasant, fruity sort of smell but barely noticeable once applied to the lips, this product also does not have a taste. I would recommend this product if you are just looking for something to keep you're lips in good condition but not to necessarily heal chapped or cracked lips.
I love Lip treatments Korres the first time used.
