I had walked by this product many times at Sephora… but since I’m a gloss junkie I always talked myself out of buying it. Well, last week I finally decided to take the plunge.
Korres Lip Butter! Lets see how my plunge turned out!
Website description: A rich, buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish.
My thoughts: The first day I used this, it made my lips peel like crazy. Granted, I am an avid lip gloss user. When my lips feel dry I have to immediately have to apply something to them, whether it’s gloss or the nearest chapsick.
I reapplied several times during the day (probably about 8 times from 9am to 6pm) and my lips had skin flaking off of them.
Day 2 of using the balm… no more peeling. Alright, now we’re talking! I haven’t experienced peeling ever since my first day of using.
The balm gives a nice natural tint to the lips with a little bit of shine. It’s not too glossy, and it’s not too pigmented.
I love the formula, it feels like jelly. It does rub of easily (after one canned Diet Coke I need to reapply). But overall, I think it’s a nice balm if you’re looking for something moisturizing with a hint of color.
Downside, I hate that it’s in a pot. That’s nothing against this particular product, but generally I don’t like glosses/balms that I have to stick my finger into. Germs. Have to wipe off finger. Those few extra steps that I would rather do without.
Overall: I love the formula and I love the color. It makes my lips soft and smooth (at least after the 1st day). My only complaint is the packaging, and that’s only because I hate sticking my finger into my lip balms. But this is a wonderful product if you’re looking for a natural looking, yet still has some pigmented color, moisturizing lip balm!
