korres lip butter mango


Korres lip butter in Mango: House of Fraiser (£6) *

At the Glossy Box event I went to a few weeks ago we were asked to pick'n'mix our own Glossy Boxes and I picked out a Korres Lip Butter after vaugely remembering seeing another blogger rave about it. I picked the Mango one even though I had my eye on the Guava at first. It smells absolutely gorgeous (albeit a little synthetic!), super moisturizing and a lovely tinted finish on the lips. I get chapped lips alot so Im always using a lip balm, this really makes me lips feel hydrated! Its a tinted lip butter and on my pigmented lips it does actually come up a corally colour. Not full coverage but its a very lovely shade!

I love the packaging, I just think its really beautiful and nice to look at. Thats the designer in me talking, but I just really love the branding and colour elements! As for the "dip your finger" in pot, I dont like using my fingers to apply makeup (not nice when you have fake nails!) so I've been using a lip brush from MAC to apply. A little bit of extra effort but its still very lovely. I think you can also get them in stick form, which I'll probably buy once I use this up.

  3. I've got to be honest, you could have said the product was terrible and the packaging would still have sold it to me,
    im such a pathetic design ho :L
    I'm really tempted to get it aswell cause £6 isnt much more than the body shop ones xx

  15. Ooh it looks good, I always used to use the lip butters from the body shop then converted to carmex. This looks really nice though and great for £6! x

  18. I picked up the Guava lip butter, smells bloody amazing! I didn't realise the others were tinted though, might just have to buy a sneaky extra when I next get paid haha, such a good lip product. (:

  19. I get chapped lips too so I'm a big fan of a decent lip balm, particularly one that gives a lovely colour like this as well as moisturising my lips, two birds with one stone! Good review :)

  24. I have the cranberry (I think?) kind, but the color is way too dark for my skin tone, but this Mango shade looks like it would be much more flattering. Great review! I agree though on the part about dipping your finger into the lip butter, it just grosses me out. All that comes up into my mind is the germs, ick!
