Korres Lip Butter – Mango review and swatch
I’m not sure what is compelling me to purchase every coral/orange/mango colored product that I find, but I’ll justify it by saying that it’s now my absolute favorite color.
I have tried Korres, and am a avid lover of my lip butter in Guava. However, sometimes when you use it, especially if you put a little too much on, it can give a sort of white cast to more pigmented lips. Because of this, I decided to try a new shade, this time in Mango.
First of all, the obvious negative to this product is that the packaging is in potted form, which can be a little unsanitary and difficult to use. I know that Korres released the Lip Butter Glaze’s in tube form, but I find those even more annoying being that the color sinks to the bottom, and I often just get a bunch of oily grease coming out of the tube instead.
I don’t mind the potted form, I typically like to carry a small lip brush with me to use it however.
The color of mango lip butter is right up my alley.
With the bright coral/orange hue, it gives vitality to my lips instead of washing them out.
Not to mention the scent, just like all the other Korres lip butters, is simply amazing.
The pigmentation of Korres Lip Butter in mango is no lipstick quality, but it does give a decent amount of color pay off. The bright coral hue gives your lips a pop of color without being too dramatic- which makes it incredibly wearable for any look or occasion.
I honestly prefer the lighter washes of coral on the lips. Sometimes, especially if you are in a professional workplace, a Viva Glam Nicki or Vegas Volt lip can be a little over-powering. This is the perfect way to rock the trend without overdoing it.
