This is a strong blue based pink, intensely pigmented lip colour with a subtle sheen. I just dab this on like a stain and then apply a gloss for an everyday rosy lip colour. Very hydrating, long wearing perfect lip product.

I bought this by accident, I was trying to buy the mango version in the same color but the SA at Sephora gave me the wrong box and I didn't realize there were two types of Korres lipstick in the same shade. But, I am glad about it because this is a seriously awesome product.

The color is VERY similar to MAC Creme Cup, its is maybe slightly deeper but not noticeably so. The color lasts longer than Creme Cup and the formulation is much more hydrating. I also got the little tub of lip butter in the same purchase and this I found more moisturizing than that too.

It actually smells similar to MAC lipsticks, that light vanilla scent. It basically tasteless, too. Nice pigmentation, I am glad I ended up with this rather than the Mango one since that is more sheer. In terms of lastig power I can have this last for about 4hrs without re-applying and even after 4 hours the color is still even and still looks good, and my lips do still feel nice, but I touch up because I like it to look fresh. That was 4hrs without eating drinking etc, there is a little transfer, but negligible.

Packaging is nice, I like the shimmer chocolate colored packaging, nice change from all the black packaging of other HE lipsticks.

My only peeve with this product is the price- $22 for .06 oz versus Mac 14.50 for .1 oz. I di say I would re-purchase because it is a nice product and worthy of repurchasing, but at the same time its pretty exy and I am sure I will be swayed by MAC or other high quality but less expensive brands before I repurchase this.

Very nice lipstick and wonderfoul colour. But the most important is its quality, as it is both moisturizing and stays for a long time. I would definetely repurchase it!

Once more, kudos to Korres. While their skincare might or might not work - I have both success and failure stories on these ones - their make up is excellent. Again and again I'm impressed with the awesome quality you get for the price when it comes to Korres Color. And this one's another winner.
I probably wouldn't have gotten this if it weren't part of a kit which I thought was great value for money, however after having tried it, I'll have to buy more of the Guava lippies. Those combine what you probably didn't think possible: they both offer a matte finish and moisturize. Which is awesome. The texture is nice and creamy, glides on lips very smoothly and you get a velvety finish. Also they go on completely opaque and they're pigmented to the max. I get on my lips pretty much what I see in the tube. This lippie is also rather stable on the lips (will not bleed) and lasts pretty long.
Now as for the shade, it's simply called Pink, but I'd describe it as pinkish red. It's actually a deep rose shade. In my opinion, combined with the matte effect, this shade gives a sophisticated, feminine, sexy pout. I personally like it a lot, but if you're looking for nudish or bubblegum or simply soft pink this shade is not the way to go.
As for the rest: the packaging is sleek and classy (slim, black tube made of sturdy plastic) and the scent is very similar to the signature MAC lipstick smell. The price is also very reasonable, plus as a part of the kit I got it in, it was dirt cheap. (The whole kit was 16, when this by itself is 12).
To sum things up this lippie can be described as:
- creamy, very pigmented, matte
- long lasting plus moisturizing
- sleekly packaged, reasonably priced.
There's really nothing to complain about here. Can't wait to try more.

*PICS*. I love this line of lipsticks seeing as I had mentioned in my other review for #13, they are moisturising, pigmented and matte. However, I'm not really thrilled with this shade as I am with #13- love that one. When I swatched it it showed up as a vibrant medium to darkish pink which looked fabulous, however when I wore this on my pigmented lips it turned out as a your lips but better shade with brick coloured undertones?, so it was not what I was expecting. When I wore foundation on my lips beforehand, it does turn out lighter but still not as pink as I would like or imagined when I swatched it. Therefore, just not the right shade for me but if you like this kind of shade, the lippie is excellent quality. Retails for 12 euros here.
