BEAUTY | First Impression: Korres Lip Butter
I've heard American YouTubers talk about this product, so when I saw that it contained natural ingredients, I jumped at the chance to purchase it. I had to drive half an hour to go to a standalone Sephora to get this, but it was totally worth it.
I didn't get his name, but the Sephora associate that helped me was so lovely (and cute!). We talked about lips -- lip mask, lip oil, lip butter, lip balms. He was so helpful and didn't have that judgmental look on his face when I told him that I would not want to purchase anything with glycols, mineral oil, parabens, etc.
Anyway, I was expecting to pay $20 for this lip butter, but I was pleasantly surprised to find out it was only $12. Okay, yes, that is still a bit much for a lip butter considering you could buy lip balms for as low as a dollar at the drugstore, but my lips need some rescuing, people! It's winter after all. I also figured that when the time comes that a man finds his way to me, my lips better be ready for some action!
So, on to my first impression. It felt great on my finger when I tried it on at the store. The consistency is quite thin so I have to really get a good amount of product to put on my lips. But on the second day when the "new product" layer is gone, it's easier to apply the product from my finger to my lips. I was expecting a thicker, buttery consistency, but I do like how hydrating it is.
The lasting power is pretty good as well. I leave the pot at home as I have other lip balms in my bag, but when I do use it, say on a weekend, the hydration lasts pretty long.
I got mine in the flavor Jasmine because I wanted it sheer. It has a very light scent that's barely noticeable. I quite love the packaging as well; this is my first balm/butter that came in something other than a tube. I'm really excited to keep using this. If I love it, then you'd definitely be seeing it in my February favorites.
