Product Review: Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate

I ♥ tinted lip balms for the very reason that they moisturize my lips, keeping them soft and supple, while adding a hint of color. That being said, I am going to review another tinted lip balm which has easily become a favorite of mine, in a span of a week or so, and that is Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate.




What I like:
- A very pretty coral-pink shade that goes on sheer adding just the right amount of color. Not as pigmented as MAC TLC in Gentle Coral but nevertheless, a pretty shade. I'm on a coral-pink kick lately so this shade is so me!
- It smells good, somewhat fruity, a little artificial but not something that would really send me to a sneeze fest. In fact, I love the scent. It reminded me of the old L'Oreal lip glosses in pots (that was way back in 2003 or so) but this smells better.
- Moisturizing. May not be as moisturizing as my Mentholatum Lip Ice Lemon but for a tinted lip balm, it is pretty awesome. I apply these on my lips at night and I wake up with softer lips.
- Non-sticky and non-waxy. Melts like butter on the lips and does not sit on top of the puckers.
- I like the cute packaging. I don't really mind using lippies in pots. What are lip brushes invented for?
- Thanks to local resellers like La Petite Confiserie, we can now gain access to these lip butters. Though I got mine on sale at Girltalk.
- The curious cat in me tried this as a cheek tint and it works just as well.

What I don't like:
- May be a bit pricey at $10 in Sephora and Php 620 at La petite Confiserie for a lip balm that only has 6g of product. But then again, I don't mind paying for something that I like and works.
- The packaging is quite bulky and may lead you to think that it contains more product than it actually does.

Overall rating: 4.5/5

Will I buy again? Definitely! :) Since I always end up getting bummed that I can't get hold of MAC TLC Gentle Coral anymore, this is a good substitute.

  6. Reina, if it's the Nivea Pomegranate lip balm, I also have it. I actually like it save for the scent, which, I find a little too much. :)

  13. Gyc, Jasmine is the pale pink one that's almost milky, right? Glad it also works for you. :P

  16. Julie, I think that since that kind of job is my dream job, I am able to sleep. Haha! But there are really some episodes that are quite disturbing, especially in the first few seasons that are so well-written, that I was not able to sleep with the lights off. :P
