PROS
+ It feels really moisturizing when you first put it on.
+ Really feels like butter!
+ Comes in a variety of colors.
+ Pomegranate gives a nice pink color to my lips.
+ Affordable
+ Smells yummy!

CONS
+ Comes in a pot - not really sanitary
+ Says it 'leaves lips smooth all day' but after a couple hours I needed to reapply
+ Sometimes lips felt drier than before I put it on.



Overall I really liked Korres Lip Butter. A lot of other people have said good things about it so I thought I'd give it a try. My lips are always dry so I feel like I ALWAYS have to have some kind of lip balm or gloss over it or it drives me nuts! IT feels soo good when you put it on and when you touch it in the pot it's not hard like other lip balms are. True to its name it really feels like butter! It comes it different scents and colors: Pomegranate, Quince, Plum, Guava, Wild Rose, and Mango. I've smelled all of them at Sephora and they all smell heavenly! However, I'm not a big fan of the pot form. I felt like I needed to sanitize my hand before I used it then I had to wipe my fingers after! Sometimes I tried to carry a lip brush with me but I just felt like that was too much trouble. Also, in the winter I felt like it actually sucked the moisture out of my lips because I kept having to reapply and when I did it felt a lot drier than before. The price is pretty reasonable at $10 a pot - but when I first got this a few months ago it was only $9! If you're looking for a moisturizing lip balm with nice sheer color this is for you! But don't expect it to last all day long like it claims. I just finished my pot and I would buy this again. In fact I really want to get the Mango Lip Buter it just smells so good! If only they made this in a stick balm form I would be totally in love!

PS sorry I forgot take lip swatches! =[

great review! maybe I missed it... but does it give a hint of color on your lips? I really like mac's tinted lip conditioner and I'm looking for something similar to it.. oh and how about the gloss factor? any shine from it?

Cute! Haven't tried/heard about this. Thanks, for sharing!

Hey Lyn, it does give a hint of color. Pomegranates like a dark pink and I have kinda pigmented lips so it sort of gives me that 'bitten' look. Sorry I forgot to take swatches I used it all up and completely forgot about it! I have the lip conditioners from the HK collection and in terms of texture I think they feel closer to MAC Tendertones. I would say they give the same amount of color payoff if not more [from the Korres] but I haven't tried all the colors so I'm only speaking for Pomegranate.

I love Korres Lip Butter soo much! I have mine in Jasmin, and I put it on my lips every night before I head to bed. It doesn't last long, that is true. But I love the smooth, buttery consistency and it smells soooo FREAKIN' good! I will have to make sure to check out the Mango one. :)

Lyn said...

Thanks girl! I have mac tendertones and I love love love the smell but they are to slick to really do any moisturizing. And the color payoff from them suck to me! Thanks for the answers cause I'll save my $10 now. My lips are pigmented too so it would probably just give me a bitten look also. I love my HK lip conditioner, I have the bright pink one and it gives just the perfect amount of color and everything =]

Great review! I haven't tried these but I do have a couple of Lip Butters from the Body Shop, which I love. Though the pot is annoying!
