Want Color in Your Lip Balm?

Korres Crocus Lip Butter Glaze ($14.00 for 0.34 oz.) is described as a “sheer lavender.” It’s a pink-tinged lavender–almost magenta–with very fine gold shimmer. MAC Flaunting It is darker, more purple. NARS Angelika is lighter. MAC Style Packed is brighter and more opaque. MAC Sassy Lassy is more opaque and pinker. MAC Loud & Lovely is pinker.

The Lip Butter Glaze formula is described as a “line-smoothing, butter lip glaze in a tube” with a “lightweight” texture that yields “vibrant and shiny color.” It has a slick, gel-gloss hybrid-like texture that glides onto the lips easily and remains movable while you wear it. It is non-sticky, yields semi-sheer to semi-opaque color, and smells of sweet vanilla (think MAC lipglosses).

The finish has a high-gloss shine–it’s really a balm-like gloss overall–which lasts for about two hours, while the product itself seems to last right around the three-hour mark. It’s hydrating while worn, and I’ve been using it after a lip-swatching-session, and it’s done a good job restoring hydration and making my lips feel whole again.  The biggest downside is that because of the really slick consistency, it can look uneven and bunch up on itself if you’re wearing too much or press your lips together.

I have two of these and while I like them, they always look uneven on me and I have to smooth them out with a finger. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong; I didn’t think I was applying that much product. Suggestions welcome.

I love how this foundation looks on you. This foundation is giving your skin such a nice glow. The Maestro foundation in your last few posts in my humble opinion isn’t half as nice on you though it doesn’t look horrible…just not fantastic like this.

I surprisingly really love this color–I don’t do blue-toned pinks or lavenders on my lips (or cheeks) EVER, but this one is really quite wearable. There’s just a touch of color but it’s sheer enough that it’s flattering and doesn’t overwhelm the look. Plus, I love a good tinted balm/gloss. I’ve tried the potted Lip Butters and having been meaning to try these. I’ll have to have a look next time I’m at Sephora!
