Totally surprised myself when I just accidentally tried this in store when it was on the front display of Mecca Maxima. Once I tried it on my lips, I did not want to part with it. I left that first time, but I came back again to the city and ended up purchasing one in this shade Plum. It is a deep burgundy, wine, shiraz shade that just seems to give me that extra oomph in my 'blah' days.
Glides on so smoothly and does prevent chapping very well. It also seems to diffuse my peeling lips quite alright as well. I use a cotton tip to get the product and apply it on my lips, just because I've started to really hate dipping my finger into the pot. However I can't see it being in a different container without losing its current amazing texture and consistency, which I am totally in love with. I think that's just the thing with lip butters. They are so buttery smooth, and is not sticky or icky or feel thick.
For those who have tried The Body Shop lip balm and thinks it's great. Try this, this totally wins by a mile.
Might now consider getting the other shades, like Pomegranate and Wild Rose... or we'll see... I'm still pretty much in love with the scent and shade of this Plum lip butter <3 Thanks Korres!

I really like this. It's very moisturizing and is great for the winter. The colour is awesome. I've really like the dark burgundy lip look that's been around this fall and winter and this is the perfect colour for someone who doesn't want to look to dark. I love the feeling of this! And I don't mind how it's in a pot. I can see how it might bother a germ nut but I usually spread lipstick and lipgloss over my lips with my fingers anyways.

Korres lip butters is a must have product for everyone with a chapped lips syndrome! The color is amazing, it makes you look polished but fresh, it's perfect for every day instead of a lipstick. The smell is really nice and the moisturising effect of all the lib butters is incomparable.

I am NC 37 and I love this stuff! On my shade it doesn't look too much at all - and is really flattering. I like the Wild Rose one too - just a different look.
Moisturizing, cheap, portable - perfect my my no makeup/makeup routine.
The fact that this is 10 bucks is awesome. I can buy a bunch and just stash them everywhere.. car, gym bag, etc. I love the smell too...I use my hands to apply all my makeup so I don't mind and I don't really worry about germs.if it was in a tube I think it would be stickier - and that's why I don't use gloss anymore except for a special occasion.

This has a nice feel and it seems to moisturize my lips. This gloss is extremely pigmented and way to bright purple for my skin tone - it looks terrible on me. I tried to make it work by applying it very lightly but the shade of it was really unflattering on me. Returned it after about 5 uses.

This is the most gothic lip balm. Most colors in lip balms are symbolic at best, but this one is for real. You could go without a lipstick, and it will still make you look like you've been sipping rasberry juicy all day. A fine lip balm, only if I could get used to the color.

Holy canolies, I love this stuff! I agree - I hate it in a pot, but honestly, it is so gorgeous and moisturizing that I can't fault it for that. I love the smell, and it is the most flattering plummy raspberry shade on my lips - not obnoxiously pigmented, just flattering and moisturizing. Totally love it! I would buy vats of this if they had it - $10 is pretty reasonable nowadays for a great product so I will be hoarding this little gem all for myself. MWAHAHAHAHA!

Love this one over the Jasmine lip butter. This formula seems more moisturizing, and the color is a beautiful cherry sheen on my lips. I love this when worn alone or over a nude lippie. When worn over a nude lippie I get the moisturizing benefits with a rosey shade that compliments my skintone. Dont' care for the pot or the price, and would like to see this in a stick or tube form instead.

I’m on a no-buy for lent so I’m going through my stash & giving a second chance to some of the products I’ve forgotten about. I wasn’t super-impressed with this lip butter the first time around, but I’m finding I like it more & more now the more I use it. The color on me is more of a bright pink-berry shade (which is why I found it a little off-putting since I prefer deeper berry/plum colors), but if I apply a small amount and really work it into my lips it gives a really pretty stained effect and softens the impact of the color. The texture of this balm is soft & kind of ‘squishy’ and it really melts into my lips. I do find it moisturizes my lips pretty well, for a few hours throughout the day or all night when worn as a nightly treatment. The tint lasts an hour or 2 as well. My favorite way to use the plum shade now is as a nightly treatment. I apply a fairly thick layer before bed, and when I wake in the morning, my lips look and feel plush and moisturized, and the color has really ‘sank’ into my lips leaving a really nice stained look (that actually lasts through breakfast, brushing teeth, etc.). I can then apply another layer for the day or some other lip product overtop. I don’t really mind the tub-packaging, except that the inner tub that holds the balm has separated from the outside tub, which makes it kind of a pain to open. I also have this in Guava, which makes a nice, colorless overnight treatment, and in Quince, which is a brighter pink that I like for summer.

I saw on Youtube so many people raving about how moisturizing Korres lip butters are and how they put it on before they go to sleep so I decided to go to Sephora and pick one up. I've been having horrible chapped lips this winter and hoped this would help. It doesn't dry my lips but it isn't particularly moisturizing. So glad I got the plum so I have a use for it. I am just using it as a sheer lipstick/pigmented gloss. It has a pleasent sweet candy smell but I'd never buy again. Also I don't like dipping into the pot. So I don't get the product under my nails and dirty my fingers, I've been using a q-tips to apply the product when out and a lip brush at home.
If you want something moisturizing for your dry chapped lips, Eucerin Aquaphor Lip Repair and Blistex Five Star Lip Protection are pretty good.

I think the most important thing to take away from reviews is context... A lot of negative reviews about the 'brightness' of the color seem to be from my fair skinned sisters.
However, I am Latina and a MAC NC43 for reference. On me this is a lovely color. It's a shade darker than my natural lip color and just makes them look luscious.
It's a nice glossy color that makes me feel polished without lipstick which I LOVE since I hate reapplying lipstick, because I do have dry lips and most color dries them out even more.
I have a KORRES lip butter in Guava and love that one too but it's almost white on my lips so I only use it at night. This is the only product I have used for long stretches of time that dont make my lips burn and peel off.
I wish the price wasn't so steep, but considering how many 'cheap' glosses I have bought and throw away because they make me peely, they is worth the price. I sue every drop.
I am not a big fan of the packaging and wish I didnt have to dip my finger into the pot, but I can deal with that. It's only my finger going in there anyway and I am the Queen of hand sanitizer LOL
I want to try the others in the line.

This product has a beautiful colour to it. It really makes your lips 'pop' whilst still being sheer and glossy. I have to reapply the lip gloss quite often, I prefer lip colour that has colour that stays but the colour and benefits outweight having to reapply often.
I love the feel and find it moisturising. It also has a lovely smell to it too.
I wish the had the object in a tube or something like that so one lippie off for that.

I really wanted to like this but sadly didn't. It didn't have much moisture at all and the color was just too bright for me. I had to reapply ever 15min just to get some moisture out of it. Also I hate that it was in a pot and I had to dip my finger in it! A tube would have been a lot better. I could have over looked the pot if it was a better product but it didn't feel good on my lips. In the end I returned it.

Love the color and the moisture. :)

Like a lot of the other reviewers, I don't find this lip butter to be moisturizing enough to function as a balm, but it does work as a really lovely lip color, for me at least. It gives a matte, 'stain' sort of look, very soft and sensual. The color, is, of course, plum, and works well with my fair complexion and dark hair.
I got my balm as part of a set for a discounted price, and IMO, this balm alone is worth the entire $7.50 that I paid!

So as with the Jasmine Lip Butter, this does not moisturize my lips enough for it to be a good lip balm. My lips are dry when I wake up in the morning. The color though is very pigmented for the tint, though the color is a little hard to wear for me.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Brown
I love this lip butter! It is a great little pot to keep in your purse so you can have a little bit of moisture and color on the run. The color is very light despite the dark appearance in the pot. I agree with other posters that a tube would be much, much better, as I have to use the back of my nail to scrape some of the product out of the pot so I don't get it stuck under my fingernail. Overall, I love this creamy lip product and I'll definitely buy another on my next trip to Sephora. I need one in my purse and one in my makeup bag!

Argh! What a horrible product. Why would I want such a pigmented lip balm? I need a mirror to apply it and I have to wipe my finger on something afterwards. It doesn't really have a smell to me, which is a shame, and because it's such a freaking strong a colour I have to use a tiny layer and probably get no moisturising benefit at all! Got this in the plum kit (with e/s and l/g) all reviewed separately.

I have left a general review of these lip butters on the one for WILD ROSE.
This lip butter is my favorite of all. On my latina skin color, this shows wonderfully. It is quite pigmented, and leaves behind a gorgeous stain on lips once the gloss wears off. They do leave a nice gloss/sheen on lips at first...but do wear off nicely, and you still have that feeling of moisture.
For those who want a pigmented lip butter, this is for you!

This product is just about perfect. I find it very moisturizing and love the hint of color it provides. It's sheer enough to be applied neatly without a mirror, but the color can easily be built up for a more dramatic look. The scent is very light and disappears entirely after a few minutes. Plum, for me is the ideal YLBB shade, but I like Wild Rose and Guava as well. Great product at a very reasonable price.
