The Spring Season: Korres #22 Rose Guava Lipstick

Korres #22 Rose Guava Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.06 oz.) is a beautiful shade of medium pink with golden shimmer. It reminded me of a seriously muted version of Guerlain Giulette Lipstick. It could also double as MAC Nympette Lipglass in lipstick form. It has a beautiful muted medium pink base with golden shimmer and a light sheen. Korres’ Guava Lipstick is incredibly moisturizing and glides onto lips easily. Guava Lipstick wears well (four hours for me) and looks soft and smooth without being creamy–so they don’t slip on the lips.

The Scarlet Season: Korres #55 Red Guava Lipstick

The Scarlet Season: Korres #55 Red Guava Lipstick

Korres’ Guava Lipstick is an amazing formula, albeit pricier than I feel it should be, and the red shade is a really fabulous starter-red. You know, like you’re not quite sure you’re ready for a full-stop red, so you need to work your way towards it… that’s what this shade is for. #55 Red is a soft, semi-opaque red with just a hint of pink. It’s not too bright, nor does it run orange or blue, so it’s very wearable. The formula itself is incredibly hydrating, so it even wears well and leaves lips feeling soft at the end of the day.

The Scarlet Season is a series of posts showcasing and featuring my favorite shades of red lips–from glosses to lipsticks that runs through December 2009. You can sure expect to see a lot of red this holiday season!

Korres Cherry Lip Kisses Review, Swatches, Photos

Korres Cherry Lip Kisses ($19.50) is a set of three 0.20 oz. lipglosses (that’s full size!) by Korres for the price of just a little more than one single lipgloss. After trying #52 in Red Pink, I wanted to see how the other shades stacked up and if they were as opaque as that one (which was already a darker gloss).

Korres Lip Scrub Review, Photos

The product has me at odds. I’m not sure if it’s best to remove it, let it sink in for a few minutes, then remove, or not to remove it at all. The rice powder makes for a very, very subtle exfoliator, and it feels more like a polisher than a scrub. I really didn’t feel like it did much in the way of exfoliation, though it did make my lips feel more hydrated–if I didn’t wipe it off, but the grainy bits of rice… you have to wipe it off at some point. Otherwise, it just feels like you have sand on your lips.
