Bought the Korres Lip Butter Glaze Pomegranate as a summery and bright lip color that wasn't too over-the-top or garish; I wanted a lip color that was pretty but with a natural look and feel. It is now January and I am still wearing this color as it is perfectly on-trend year round. I find the color to be flattering and nicely differentiated than many colors currently on the market for lips.
The positives: Lovely, fresh color and ample coverage. I prefer the tube packaging as opposed to a pot (which I have not tried), I feel it gives more control on how much one applies and I tend to blend the glaze down with my fingertip. I am not using it as a heavy color, more as a hint of color. Reading other reviews I am pleased someone finally mentioned the vanilla scent because I love that about using this product on my lips but, as the other reviewer mentioned, there is no discernible taste to the glaze.
The negatives: As other reviewers have noted, it does not seem to stay on overly long, about the same as a typical lip gloss, and it does not moisturize my lips though I am using it for color, not moisturizing. I reapply maybe twice every four hours or so, the length of wear doesn't bother me as it's always easy to touch up one's lips wherever and whenever.
I would buy this product again and would perhaps try alternate colors.

I got this in a set of 3 lip butter glaze. I find that its not sticky, moisturizing, and has excellent pigmentation. I also have jasmine and raspberry and the pomegranate is the one that I use the most.

While this lip floss does nothing for me as far as moisturizing goes, it also doesn't dry out my lips. It's not sticky (yay!) but does have a slightly greasy finish. It adds a nice pop of bright coral color, although it doesn't last more than a couple hours (even when I don't eat or drink). I can't apply this without a mirror, since the glaze is very pigmented. A nice product, but maybe not worth the $14 price tag considering how quickly it fades and the fact that it doesn't moisturize.

I love this lipbalm/gloss hybrid. It feels very nice on my lips, not sticky, doesn't add much moisture, but doesn't dry them out either. I prefer the thicker consistency over the lip butter as it stays on longer. Color is great on my NC42 skintone. Would definitely re-purchase.

I LOVE the color. It is a beautiful light orangy coral. On my pale skin, it is more interesting than just a nude, but it doesn't scream. However...it's really sticky & goopy and not very moisturizing. I put Aquaphor over it and that helped, but I just do not like the texture.

love , love, love the feel of these! Have a million glosses but these are the ones that are lately always in my makeup bag. I travel for a living and these are fantastic for chapped lips with great shine and color pay off. Also great just for a low key look at the beach!

THIS PRODUCT IS IN A TUBE, NOT A POT!!
Several of the negative reviews below are reviewing the POT, not the GLAZE - the glaze butter product comes in a tube and costs $14 while the pots cost $12. Different products.
With that said, I way prefer the tube to the pot. There is more pigment (see Temptalia's reviews and swatches), it's more sanitary, and it's more like a heavy gloss + butter hybrid. I really love all the colors I've tried (Pomegranate, Quince, Rose, Jasmine, a few more). It's a shame this product isn't getting reviewed properly because the GLAZES ARE AWESOME!

I like this, it is very moisturizing and non-sticky on me. Plus the tube is easy to apply to the lips. It is a bright coral/peachy color when you squeeze it out of the tube and it brightens up my lips without looking garish since the color is fairly sheer. One thing I like about it is that it doesn't have chunks of glitter in it. It smells like vanilla from the tube but on the lips it is flavorless.

I got a little travel size Lip Butter Glaze from Sephora (raspberry) which is perfect for travel, especially air travel which is very dehydrating. It is a lovely shade, and like other reviewers, I apply it to my finger then dab it on my lips. It is quite hydrating, although not quite as much as the Ecco Bella Rhubarb stick which has a moisturizer core (see my review). So if I were travelling to a tropical location, where I knew there was a high humidity, I would be content with the glaze, but if I were going somewhere dry, like the Rocky mountains, I would probably apply the Ecco Bella en route.

I was looking for an MLBB-type product that would look both enlivening and natural and was steered towards this. I love the stuff in the pot, but hate digging about with grubby fingers. Most unsanitary. This seemed like a good compromise. Anyhow, in the shop mirror, this looked fine; however, on closer inspection in the bathroom mirror at home, it appeared gummy, uneven, line-accentuating, and....and...orange. I am a NW20 with freckles and blue eyes, and corally shades can look quite pleasing on me, but this honestly looked as if I had melted a road cone on top of the stove and slapped it on. Most disappointed was I, figuring I would again have to take another dud back to Sephora and admit shame and defeat, while the black-jacketed Sephora girls tut-tutted at the crazy impulse-buy lady. However, I had a stroke of inspiration. I mixed a little of this with a blob of Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine...voila! Perfect consistency! Enough rich warmth, and yet not overwhelming or fake. Now would I buy it again? No. Too thick and lurid on its own and not moisturizing enough. A shame, as I like Korres.
