Korres Lipsticks

I have a few Korres lipsticks, and it’s one of my favorite brands when it comes to lipsticks.

To cut to the chase, these are very moisturizing (see pics below for what a difference they make on my horrendous dry lips), all of them have SPF10 (always a bonus), and they come in a variety of colors and textures.

These also come in sturdy packaging, that feels nice and heavy in your hands, and snaps tightly in place.

The only thing that might be a con for some people is the fact that more often than not, they are a bit sheer, which means they are also not extremely long lasting.  Me personally, I don’t mind at all, because it means that: 1) they have tons on moisture and are amazingly comfortable on my lips and 2) I can reapply whenever I want without risking looking like a clown if I don’t have a mirror with me (as if).  Even though I prefer my lips a bit natural looking most of the time, the intensity of color is easily buildable with a few extra swipes!

Check out the pics and swatches below, all in natural, day light, with no lip liner or lip primer! I will be posting a separate post with lip swatches, since I don’t want this one to get to long/boring.

Oh, I forgot the most outrageous part!!!  Who ever names the lipsticks at Korres, is absolutely color blind.  Or a straight guy (you know it’s true)!  Almost never have I seen a Korres Lipstick to match the name it has been given.  Sheesh people.  Do us, and yourselves, a favor.  I’m not asking for Bob Ross, but hire someone who knows colors!  This is just ridiculous!
