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).

  • #33 Nude is a semi-sheer peachy-nude with golden copper sparkle. This one was just okay – there’s nothing really special that drives this color. It looks blah on my lips, and it’s the sheerest Korres’ lipgloss I’ve tried. It’s not a bad shade, it’s just not one I’d actively seek out.
  • #25 Natural Purple is a creamy, semi-opaque played down pink with no shimmer. I actually liked this one the most out of the three shades, because it gave me full color, lots of glossiness, and it looked natural. I don’t know why it’s called Natural Purple, but it’s definitely an easy, wearable shade.
  • #54 Fuchsia is a semi-opaque medium fuchsia with softer pink fuchsia sparkle. This one settled a bit into lines and applied streaky, so some care needs to be used to apply it and get a more even look. It’s a fun pop of pink, but I’ve seen this color before.

Korres’ Cherry Full Color Gloss is a moisturizing, non-sticky gloss with a high-shine glossy finish that tends to be more pigmented than the typical gloss. Not all shades are created equal, so some shades are more opaque than others. The gloss has a faint scent of cherry, but it’s hardly noticeable (which may or may not be a good thing for you).

    I like Natural Purple the best. Their definition of “purple” must be different from the rest of us. Nude is barely there :( I have never tried Korres lip glosses…not sure I am missing out though?

    natural purple and fuchsia are pretty, they look like “your lips but better” kind of colour.

  3. natural purple looks like one of those MLBB glosses, looks awesome on you!

    I love Korres lip glosses!! I have the three that have been reviewed above and they are my favorites! I also love their mango butter lipsticks and their bronzers with Monoi Oil…I actually love all their products. I believe you can get 20% on the Pink products until tomorrow which include some sets with the lipgloss and the lipsticks at

  5. Oooo! I didn’t know Korres made glosses…I will have to get these ASAP!

  6. I love these! The feel great! Their mango butter lipstick and guava are nice. :)

    I adore Natural Purple, but I thought the cherry scent was overwhelming — hated it — so I returned the gloss. Sads!

    I really like the way these taste and smell (from the cherry oil). I think my favorite color is the light pink, no. 11.

  9. Oh well, something I think I’ll pass. I saw this in store and was about to pick it up. There are just so many other things out there that I’d like to get from Korres instead.

    Natural Purple looks gorgeous! I love nude lips in this nectar/pink/peach shade.

  11. Wilcoa

    Natural Purple is the nicest, but since they’re not sticky I’m worried they wouldn’t stay long on my lips… and for $20 I think it’s a skip for me (or at least until a Christmas wishlist can come about ;P)

  12. Lorna

    Those tubes look rather small for $19.50. How big are they, about the size of a MAC lipglass?

    Love alll you looks …stunning !!!

    Was wondering if you can do a YSL Matt touch primer review

  14. In my choice “Natural Purple” is looking more attractive.

  15. I am so tempted by this…

    omg! i have almost the same lip shape as you! but i’m slightly darker skinned(with yellow undertones) so for me the nude works best. i have pink lips, so the peachy color actually shows. natural purple is good too, but i feel like i’ve seen that color before.
    oh, and i get what you said about fuschia being streaky.
    i made the decision in a hurry and felt guilty about spending that much, but totally worth it. i use it everyday. and i like the smell! try sephora stores. i paid $17 for it there.
