I just wanted to quickly highlight a product that has now become one of my very favourites. A lot of you will be familiar with the Korres lip butters. I got my first pot last year in the much raved about jasmine.
It's essentially a tinted lip balm which I love it and use all the time, but I am not crazy about the packaging. If you didn't already know, I'm a bit OCD and the idea of sticking my finger into products really drives me nuts. I tend to only use these types of products at home. Lord knows what I've touched when I'm out and about and the idea of then sticking my finger into a lip butter & slathering it on is enough to make me have to lie down.
So when I saw the new lip butter glaze that Korres came out with, I realized that they obviously had received similar feedback from like minded and brilliant OCD types. The formula is still conditioning but a bit more consistent with a gloss rather than a lip balm. This is what it looks like;
This is one of those tubes with the slant tip applicators. Granted these types of applicators can still be a bit messy, but they are WAY better than the little pots.
I have way too many lipstick & lip glosses, especially considering that I tend to use them as I go out the door but never bother to carry and re-apply them. I like this because it gives me a bit of color but it's also conditioning. I don't mind carrying it with me and re-applying throughout the day because it doesn't require you to be as precise as when you apply lipstick. Although I can't quite slap it on quite as haphazardly as I do with a lip balm, it's still relatively low maintenance.
This is what the color looks like;
It was hard to get a true swatch of this but it is a beautiful soft pink nude color and is just gorgeous on your lips. Mr. A isn't a big fan of too much color on my lips and neither am I for that matter. This is just the perfect hint of color without being overdone. Here it is a bit blended out;
And finally blended out a bit further;
It is coming off a little tan/orange for some reason but it truly is a pinkish nude that would suit a lot of skin tones. I should have done a lip photo to give you a better idea...sorry about that.
So for all of you like minded individuals out there, who are perhaps not 'pot' fans & like a hint of color on your lips, you MUST try this. This retails for $14USD at Sephora.com and comes in a .034 oz tube. That size description means nothing to me, but I would guess that it will last me about 3-4 months if I used it regularly.
Have you tried any of the Korres lip butters or glazes? What is your favourite no brainer lip product?
