I have mentioned Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine numerous times, and featured it in enough posts that I thought that I should talk about it in more depth before I actually use it up. It is so well-loved that it is nearly half gone, and no longer travels well because I inadvertently dropped it and cracked the lid. I purchased mine eons ago in a set with two other Korres Lip Butters (Wild Rose and Pomegranate) from Sephora for $19.50.
According to Korres, "This rich butter leaves lips deeply moisturized, supple, and kissably soft. Korres Lip Butters are formulated with natural oils and extracts to soothe and condition lips. Shea butter and rice wax provide lasting hydration and softness..."
The texture is thick and buttery, and it "melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish." I often apply this in a thin veil beneath lipstick, and then apply a bit on top afterward. Most often, however, I simply apply it alone. I get a couple of hours of wear, but I love it so much that I don't mind reapplying it. While I am quite fond of my other two colors- I really love Jasmine, and will no doubt repurchase it before making a significant dent in the other two.
