Korres #36 Natural Brown Lipstick

Korres #36 Natural Brown Lipstick ($18.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a peachy, light-medium brown with soft champagne micro-shimmer and soft shine. It’s nearly opaque on lips, despite its lighter, more nude-ish coloring.

Korres’ Mango Butter lipsticks have a lightly sweetened fruit scent (“mango”) with a moisturizing, creamy lipstick formula that glides onto lips and looks even without drying them out. Most of the shades are semi-sheer, but this one was nicely opaque, though I imagine on more pigmented lips, there might be less peach and more red peeking through. These usually wear three to four hours on me, which is about average for a lipstick.

FINAL THOUGHTS: This is a nice slightly-warmed peachy nude for warmer skin tones. Both lighter and darker skin tones should be able to wear this as a flattering nude that doesn’t pack a ton of color nor will wash one out. The warmer undertones in this shade are slight, which means that those with cooler or pinker undertones should still be able to wear this shade.

    I just tried the Korres brand for the first time before Christmas, and I’m totally in love with the lip glosses. I hope to be able to try more of their products soon. Thanks for the reviews!

    It is a beautiful shade for summer and fall where the shimmers blended in with the lip to make its look like a lip gloss have been applied over it.

  3. Jennifer S

    Aha! You sure are tempting me with this one :)

  4. Stacey

    Your lips always look so smooth and the lipstick looks great! Please share your tips. I love your site!!

    oh! damn, you’d love this set christine and all four would be wearable on you (I really only can wear the natural purple and so so in the brown from this set because they tend to offer very warm tones) I usually order direct (they offer a lot of promo codes) and RECEIVE my orders in 1 business day.

    the lip butters are great and so are the lipglosses, I’m lusting the natural purple in the cherry lip kisses set. the nude is the most flattering brown I’ve ever owned.

    if you order from them you get 3 samples and the yogurt mask is a really nice night cream if you just don’t wash it off (it absorbs fully in about 15 min anyway). muse knows most of the line and often gets sweet promo codes.

    the sets are usually great deals (I tried the tm set and love the bronzer) esp the skincare sets, makeup, and bath. the body milks and butters are fab but sometimes hsn has better price offers than korres (when they have free S&H). I <3 the cherry and mango lipstuff and trying to behave and not buy more til I use some of what I have. :-/

    I think I paid $17 for the set of 4 inc free S&H on one of their sales so def check them out.

    That color looks like it was made for you! It has a “natural beauty” glow to it. I will be looking for one for myself :)

  7. Ashley

    wow this color looks beautiful on you!

  8. ak

    This should be your new everyday lipstick Christine. It looks great on you truly.

  9. I LOVE Korres lip products. Their lip butters and lip glosses and lipsticks with SPF are awesome. Really impressed by the quality.

    CHRISTINE! I don’t understand how every single color looks totally amazing on you! This is beautiful, even more so than the other colors you’ve worn.

  11. Cris

    What a coincidence, I just wore this today! I picked it up a year ago, does anyone know if it has been re-formulated since? I like to wear it with MAC’s Creamola or Beurre lipliners.

    I can’t say I love the words “Brown Mango” together! XD
