Review | Korres Plum Lip Butter

(Me wearing it on a night out in Cambridge with MAC Woodwinked on my eyes)
Hello Ladies. Today I am going to share with you a product that at the end of last year, every beauty blogger was raving about. As usual I'm late on the bandwagon, but never the less, here is my review of Korres Plum Lip Butter. Korres is a really lovely brand. Everything Korres make is organic, sourcing their essential fruit oils and herbal infusions locally, which makes buying it all the better.
First of all, the packaging of this is lovely. It's in two cute little boxes and then the actual product is in a  really sturdy, classic white plastic pot with a lid the colour of the product.
The shade I decided to get was 'Plum'. Part of me thought about getting a brighter pink but I don't really own many plum/ berry shades so I thought I would try something new.
The first thing that shocked me (in a good way) when I took the lid off was the scent. It smells absolutely divine! I couldn't believe a product so small could smell so delicious! The second thing that surprised me was the pigmentation. This thing is crazy pigmented! As you can probably see from the swatch above! I was just expecting a regular balm, but it is like a glossy lipstick in balm form!
Another great thing is that it is not sticky in the slightest; which is always great as no one wants their hair stuck to their lips! It is also incredibly moisturising, which is just another added factor that makes it such a brilliant product. It's made of Shea Butter and Rice Wax for 'deep hydration and softness'.
Overall, I absolutely love it, and I already have my eye on a few other colours! I definitely recommend this if you are looking for a product that is going to give you a gorgeous pop of colour whilst still looking subtle, as well as being moisturising and non sticky.
Korres is available to buy from FeelUnique,  ASOS and I bought mine from Oliver Bonas. Depending on where you buy them, they retail for £7 or £8. I paid £7 for mine.
Have you tried Korres Lip Butters? What are your thoughts?

  1. I really like these lip butters. I have quite a neutral nudey shade. Not sure what it is called but I really like it. This looks really pretty :)
