Product Review: Korres Lip Butter in Pomegranate

05 January 2010

I got this little pot over Christmas or maybe just before New Year. We have our major sales on 26th December and we call it Boxing Day. I can say that this is our equivalent of Black Friday :)

So since most of the stuff are on sale I thought why not?

Why buy this?

I was watching MakeupbyTiffanyD video on 2009 Favourites and she raved about this lip butter. I then searched on YouTube who has it and watched some other vids. I also went and searched blogs reviews on this baby and I was convinced to try it.

Why Pomegranate?

I am not a fan of the fruit but this one is the cutest pink and most natural looking on my lips.

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

That's how it looks like on my lips... it's a bit blurry but you can see the colour.. (I really need to get a new camera.. or a new iPhone :P)

The Verdict

OK, I want to LOVE this product so much but I can't.... I only LIKE it.

I like it for the colour pay off on my lips - very natually pink

I like it for the scent - it's not overpoweringly sweet

I like it for the size of the pot - so tiny it can fit on my coin purse

I like it for the prize - it's not that cheap but it's still less from what I expected it to be.

I CAN'T Love it because..

it's not hydrating contrary to what they promise.

my lips flake out after I apply it. It's like one of those lipsticks that dries out your lips after a few minutes or so.

Sad to say that I am not entirely satisfied with this product and will not repurchase in the future.

If you're interested - i got this at Kit Cosmetics - for $17.50AUD
