As soon as I received Korres’ new Mandarin Lip Butter Stick I started to “think pink”. Actually I’m thinking very light pink for this one. Korres has been known for their Lip Butter for quite a while and people love them BUT they come in a pot which isn’t always to everyone’s liking. Now though there’s a lip butter available using their hydrating and softening lip ingredients in stick form and it’s so easy to use.
Four colors plus untinted are ready to conquer chapped lips and keep them away. The Mandarin Lip Butter Sticks are available in Rose, Purple (berry tint), Pink and Peach. The tint is very light on the Pink and I’m sure the Peach too. It gives my lips just the tiniest hint of color but it feels so good!
Let’s talk about these great ingredients:
*Mandarin Oil refreshes and soothes dry lips, especially chapped lips
*Shea Butter and Sunflower Wax deeply nourish your lips for long lasting comfort.
*Vitamin E is for healing and known for its advanced antioxidant properties
*There are no Silicones, Parabens, Propylene Glycol, Phthalates, and these aren’t tested on animals
At first I was going to call this a warm pink but the tint is actually too sheer to give my lips much color. It enhances my natural lip color so it’s perfect for wearing when I don’t want to wear lipstick. I’m healing my lips at all times when I wear this.
For me this is a great alternative to a regular lip balm. There is no fragrance or taste which is perfect for me personally. Korres Mandarin Lip Butter Stick isn’t sticky which equals happiness in my book. Each of the 5 Lip Butter Sticks have their own great packaging. My pink tube has found a permanent home in my cosmetic bag and brings a “smize” when I open and use it. If you are looking for softer lips and sheer color then Korres should be in your future. — Marcia
