As I mentioned in my review of the Korres Lip Butter in Jasmine, I am very fond of the Korres Lip Butter formula, and I imagine that I will always have a couple of them in my stash. This formula is a rich smooth lip balm that is moisturizing and comfortable on the lips. Described as, "A rich, buttery lip balm that melts on the lips and offers a shiny, tinted finish," and that has the perfect amount of slip and cushion.
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. This shiny, juicy pop of color comes in an array of "flavors" and is ideal for dry lips."
I find that the Korres Lip Butters deeply moisturize my lips and leave them soft and smooth. I love tinted lip balms as an alternative to those that lack pigmentation- because it is nice to have a wash of color while treating chapped lips. Korres Lip Butters impart a bit of shine, but not the level of shine that one expects from an actual lip gloss.
Left to Right: Pomegranate (sheer coral), Wild Rose (sheer deep red), and Jasmine (sheer neutral pink) (reviewed here). Pomegranate and Wild Rose are actually quite pigmented with buildable coverage. Jasmine, on the other hand, is quite light and sheer.
-Natural Oils and Extracts: Soothe and condition lips.
-Shea Butter and Rice Wax: Provide lasting hydration and softness.

Overall assessment: I love Korres Lip Butters! Jasmine is still my favorite, and for some reason it seems to be a bit more moisturizing than Pomegranate and Wild Rose, but that could just be my imagination.
