In May, I randomly tried this Korres Lip Butter. I had always read great reviews of this product, and finally decided to give it a try. I chose the color Plum because it seemed like it could provide a berry-ish natural hue to my lips. I don't love lip products in jars, especially if they are too awkward to put your finger in. However, it does look quite nice applied with a brush... I just happen to be really lazy. I do like the more pigmented color that I get with a brush, but the sheer wash of color I get with fingers is quite nice too.
On me, this product consistently wears for nearly three hours. I eat every 2-3 hours, and most recently, I could still feel the emollient texture of the lip butter partway through eating a very large dinner (and an afternoon of snacking). I like that the color doesn't transfer onto my glass too. (Somehow, that is a major pet peeve of mine, which is probably why I never wear lip products!) Who knows, for someone who doesn't eat or drink as frequently as I do, this may last even longer! With proper application, I can even see how this could leave a light stain that would be pretty!
I would say this is a an above average lip balm - it has great moisturizing properties but probably wouldn't cut it for someone with severely dry or chapped lips. I am pretty obsessed with my La Mer Lip Balm at the moment, and do have quite troublesome lips. This Korres Lip Butter can keep my lips moisturized throughout the day, but since I'm lazy, I do not tend to reapply this.
I'm wearing a very light application in this shot from a few months back - what do you think?
