Korres Lip Butters: Wild Rose, Guava and Mango

Korres Lip Butters / Wild Rose, Mango, Guava  £6-£7 via

"A buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish. The combination of Shea butter and Rice wax offers deep hydration and softness. Ideal for chapped lips."

I adore Korres lip butters and they quickly became my favourite lip balms. I love everything about them!
I actually reviewed the Mango one previously, but I wanted to share my little "collection" with you and swatched them all as well :) Let's start with the packaging. It is very simple and every pot has a different lid colour to match the shade of the lip butter inside :)  It really helps if you have more than one.

My most used shade is Guava- it  looks white in the pot, but once applied  it looks like a regular lip balm.
That's why I use it as a base for lipsticks etc. Next, we have Wild Rose, a gorgeous burgundy/berry shade. It was my "go to" lip product for Autumn and I still love it. If you use it sparingly, it will give your lips a lovely flush of colour, but you can achieve a very deep berry shade if you use more product.  Mango appears scary in the pot, but it looks really nice on my lips. It is a warm coral shade and it will definitely get a lot of love from me in Summer.

Korres Lip butters are very nourishing and packed with goodness, keeping my lips super soft and plump. The formula is enriched with Shea Butter and Rice Wax and it melts in contact with skin. I really like the buttery texture of this product and the way it feels on my lips. There is no stickiness and the overall quality of the lip butters is amazing! I think that £6-£7 is a reasonable price for such a great product. They also smell incredible and each scent is different :) Nothing too strong though, so don't worry if you are sensitive to scented lip products. You might find the dark shades a pain to apply, but it isn't  a big issue for me. You can always use tissue to clean your finger, right?

 If you struggle with chapped lips, or simply like the look of Korres lip butters, I would definitely recommend them.
