I'd never heard of the Greek brand Korres until it started to get mentioned in the Blogging Community, and I've always wonder what the products were like. Luckily I spied Korres on Zalando and bought one of their lip butters(*) from then on I've been hooked. Korres say that their lip butters are "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".
And I couldn't agree more. As I've used my Quince lip butter up, I decided to try the Pomegranate version. First up is the packaging- simple yet expensive looking at the same time. For some reason I actually like keeping them in the packaging when I'm not using them.
The product itself is cased in a small but sturdy pot with a screw lid. Now I know some people don't like sticking their fingers into pots for lip balms, however all the lip butters are avaliable in stick form. The lids are the colour of the product inside, now don't be put off with how intense the colour looks in the pot- personally I think the product gives very little colour pay off on the lips.
Normally this lasts a good hour on my lips before I reapply- however this depends if I'm drinking tea at work, as my mug is quite partial to this haha. A quick little tip for you- once you've used these up- keep your empty pots to depot what is left of your Mac lipsticks- my quince one is currently being used to store shy girl.
