Korres Lip Butter in Guava



I don't understand how I have not posted a review on this before. I have scanned my blog and I can't find it anywhere so apologies if I am repeating myself. I discovered this lip butter a while back and my opinions of it have grown over time.

I first came across it when All That Glitters spoke about it in one of her beauty videos. She claimed that it was what gave her that milky, pale pink, stunning lip that I had always wanted to achieve. She also said that it moisturised her lips at the same time which I thought was the most amazing concept ever. Not only had I been introduced to the colour of my dreams, but it was also in my favourite state as well - a balm/butter.

At this point I couldn't stand any lipsticks (though we all know that has changed dramatically). Therefore I found it very difficult to find something which gave me the colour pay off I desired. I had high hopes that this would finally give me a fabulous nude lip without leaving me looking a little, well, dead!

I ordered it from Asos and when it arrived I couldn't wait to try it out. The packaging seemed really cute and the tub was a nice size. However the butter seemed really stiff and hard to pick up on my finger. It was really sheer and because I could barely get any product to start with, the moisture payoff was pretty rubbish.

However, over time the butter softened and on warm days it was easier to apply. It gave me that milky colour but was sheer enough to avoid the disastrous washed out look. The moisture is there but it really doesn't last that long at all. You would have to reapply this every hour, on the hour, to achieve a well nourished lip. So it has its flaws. The colour doesn't last very long either which is a pain to put it politely. However I still love it and use it. I like to keep it in my bag and pop it on when I feel that I need a pick me up. I then use my Blistex Relief Cream as a general lip balm, which is extremely moisturising and gives me that temporary milky look as well.

If you have any recommendations for great lip balms, please leave them in the comments below. I am the type of girl that could never have too many and am always on the search for something new.
