Review: Korres Lip Butters

I finally got my hands on the much coveted Korres Lip Butters about a month ago from StrawberryNET- a trio pack with the shades Mango, Pomegranate and Guava. After seeing many reviews praising these little pots of buttery goodness, I just had to have them!



Retailing for $18.95 in Australia, I definitely wasn't too eager to pay that much for one small pot of lip butter no matter how great people said it was. I had a look around, and considered the $11.90 price for each pot from asos. But luckily I did pick up a great offer from StrawberryNET and got these three for $18!


L-R: Pomegranate, Guava, Mango
Described as a buttery lip balm that melts on the lips, the Korres Lip Butters offer a beautiful tinted finish,  hydration and a healthy shine. Each flavour has its own individual scent and colour which I love! The whole range includes Quince, Wild Rose, Jasmine, along with the three I have, Pomegranate, Guava and Mango.  My favourite from the trio I have are Mango and Guava, and then Pomegranate. This is probably mainly because of its butteriness- Mango and Guava seem to be much more thicker in texture and melt into the lips much better than the Pomegranate which I find quite strange! These lip butters definitely moisturise the lips well and lasts quite well. In terms of scent, Mango wins, but I quite love the scent of Guava too- it doesn't smell like guava, but a vanilla-like scent. Poor neglected Pomegranate! I absolutely love the cute packaging of the lip butters too- adorable little pots- although I agree with everyone else that it is not very hygienic to use (imagining dunking dirty fingers into it, ew!).

Mmm buttery, colourful goodness
Guava- smells like vanilla!
Mango- smells like mango! :P
The Pomegranate hadn't been touched yet in this photo!
In terms of colour pay off, I wasn't really expecting much and was not too fussed about it. Guava provides a creamy sheen to the lips; Mango, a beautiful coral colour; and Pomegranate, a pretty pink. I would have loved to have the Jasmine lip butter too (a sheer pink) but I think three of these lip butters are enough for now!


Overall, I am very happy with these Korres Lip Butters. They deliver creaminess and a nice sheen to the lips, while keeping them hydrated as well as smell amazing! It doesn't hurt that they are in cute little pots which are presented beautifully too. Another plus side is that Korres makes products which are environmentally friendly and have formulations based on natural ingredients. I was so impressed with these beautiful lip butters that I went and purchased the Korres Lip Butter Glazes which I will review soon, keep an eye out for it!

Have you tried the Korres Lip Butters? How about other products from the Korres range?

  1. I've been wanting to try Mango for the longest time! I can't bring myself to buy this pack because I've hardly used my existing three though! So glad you like them- they're truly lovely products! :)

    $18 for 3 is such a great deal! they retail for 8€ each here in Germany..which is more a drugstore price range, which is really good! ;)

    1. They are so buttery and I love their texture! The lip butters are so fun to use as well :) Jealous of your prices, the Korres range is only stocked in expensive department stores or speciality stores, and isn't drugstore at all here in Australia!

  4. The lip butters are $16 in Canada... I've swatched at sephora... but the price is too expensive, and I'll be waiting for a good sale... :) Also, I can't believe you take your photos with your iphone! the quality of your photos are great! xx lilstephh.blogspot.ca

  7. Everyone has been loving these and I was wondering why because I love my maybelline baby lips and they're so much cheaper.
    Thanks for the post!

    1. I actually purchased two Maybelline Baby lips the other day and am super impressed with them! I guess it is just the presentation of the Korres lip butters and their tinted colour that appeals :)

  8. I've heard really great things about these but for some reason I've just not had the urge to get any (which is very strange because I love lip products). Anyhow, they look lovely :)

  11. I included one in my recent blog giveaway but I don't actually own one myself! I have way too many lip products atm, really need to use them up! And yeah I'm not a huge fan of the pot style balms either. I'm using a Korres eye cream atm for night time (and YSL eye cream in the morning) which is pretty good and smells lovely as well!

  13. Don't worry, Pomegranate gets enough love - it's my favourite!

    1. That's great to here! It is such a beautiful shade though but it doesn't seem as buttery as the other two for some reason :(

      Delete
  14. Yay, you got your hands on these finally! :) Pomegranate as the first one I tried and it's probably my favourite overall, though Jasmine gets a lot of love from me. I find that the lip butters aren't uniformly soft/buttery - Jasmine is the most creamy but oddly, I find Wild Rose a bit drying. I love Mango for summer :)

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I really want Jasmine as it looks so pretty, and just because I want it! Yes I agree that they aren't all have the same creaminess- I think mango and guava are creamier than pomegranate! Mango is perfect for the summer, especially because of its coral shade!

  15. The texture and finish sounds like a dream! I just had my korres order of some of their lip products arrive! Cant wait to try them out! Enjoy them! So glad you got a good deal, i ordered mine on sale from ACW.com! ^^

    i've heard so much about this and i am really curious, but i am not a big fan of lip products in jars.
    the mango color looks so juicy and pretty, though. ;)

  18. I was thinking that it'd be similar to the Revlon Lip Butters, hehe. I'm really intrigued as to how these smell, especially since it's the first time I've heard of a guava-scented/flavored product. They even look delicious in the pot!

    1. I don't think it's similar to the Revlon Lip Butters, this is more buttery and moisturising for sure, and perhaps less of a colour pay off too! I'm not sure how guava smells to be honest, but I think this lip butter smelt sort of like vanilla!

  32. I'm from the Philippines and this is the first time that I actually read a review on a Korres product. We don't have korres in the Philippines so I tend to ignore reviews on korres products! However, this review made me really want to heck it out. I hope I can try it soon! They look yummy and irresistable! :)
