Korres Lip Butter


Korres Pomergranate Lip Butter

The Price
I bought this on Feel Unique after hearing so many bloggers rave about it. It cost £7.00 which could be considered pricey for a lip balm but as long as I long the product is good, personally I don't mind spending a little extra. You get 6 g of product which I think is standard for a lip product but it doesn't look or feel like much.


The Packaging
It comes in a cute little cardboard box that the lip balm slides out of. I was surprised at how light the actual lip balm was. Some people may like this as it isn't heavy to carry around but personally I feel it makes the product appear cheap. I am not a fan of lip products which you have to apply with your fingers as I feel they accumulate germs quicker, so I usually deviate towards lip products in tube/stick.


The Product
I regret having to say this but I actually hate this product! I was so excited to finally purchase it as it got such rave reviews, but I felt it made my lips feel really dry rather than moisturised. Also I find when its on my lips its irritates them slightly. I always feel like wiping it straight off. The colour is only ok, I think a cheaper lip product would give the same result as it appears quite natural looking on my lips even though in the container it appears to be a deep enough colour. This next point may be my own issue rather than the products but I find it a pain to apply as I always have to apply it with a mirror otherwise I manage to get it outside my natural lip line and it looks a mess! I definitely wont be purchasing any more of these lip butter butters but I feel the ingredients don't agree with me rather than them being a bad product.

Have you girls tried any of the Korres Lip Butters? What did you think of them?

  1. I brought into the hype and I'm not convinced about this either. I feel same as you in hate sticking finger into a product & I need a mirror. The part I enjoy is the colour.

  7. I have the jasmine of these and I LOVE it. I actually find it to be really moisturising. The colour pay of is a bit crappy for the price even if it is meant to be sheer.

  15. really? i have the driest skin/lips and their lip butters are nothing but moisturizing lipgasms! that's a shame it didn't work for you.... i had a similar reaction to Sugar lip treatments (by fresh co.) but worse... it turned my lips into dry, flaky, white crack-whore lips that took me weeks to fix and return to normal!

  16. As some of the lip butter flavors have recently sold out, I decided to try this new blend of vanilla and honey as suggested by one of my friends in my last lip.You can find collection of beauty products.

  17. I have this lip butter and like it a lot. I don't know that it's necessarily a miracle product, but it does work well. My biggest problem with it is the tub packaging - I find I often don't reach for it while out for that reason, which is sort of a shame, given that I do like the product.

  18. Hmmmm....impressive indeed. I have heard good things about this lip butter. I am thinking of trying it out since I want my lips to be kept moisturized. I'll go and check this one out.
