Who knows about your blog?

Blogging is an amazing past time and a pleasure to either create or just to browse as a reader. But I have noticed there’s a distinct divide in blogging between people who are very vocal about being  a blogger and those who prefer to keep things a little quieter. Now...

Hyped Products that you just don’t like? Share yours!

  I’ve bought a lot of makeup over the years and that means I’ve succumbed to the mystical powers of product hype more times than I care to mention. Sometimes, the hype is warranted but other times, I’m left a bit puzzled and wonder if I’m being a fussy so...

Afternoon Tea

Afternoon Tea

Doesn’t this look good enough to eat? I’m trying to stay off the sweeties so maybe that’s why I’m giving this duo a double take, but you can’t deny the cuteness of this pair from Bomb Cosmetics. I’d spotted various cuteness from the brand dotted around many a chemist in...

korres lip butter stick

I was taking a wander through the newly reopened Clerys with my mam and nana, admiring how beautiful the place looks when I spied a little stand that hadn’t been there previously. A stand full of wonderful lip butters, Korres lip butters to be exact. Now all my Korres goodies have been from online shops so to see them in all their wonder right in front of me was brilliant, especially when I saw they had the stick versions of their lip butters on display. I’ve reviewed most of the lip butter tubs (which you can have a look at in all their glory here) but out and about I don’t want to dip a mucky finger into a pot so a twist up balm is the only job.

korres lip butter stick pink

There was around 4 coloured and two colourless on display and I opted for Pink which seemed to be nicely in the middle between very pale and a bit brighter. I have to hand it to myself, I chose very, very well and this hasn’t been off my lips since. I’m a divil for lipbalms and their natural look and I love a very specific pink shade that isn’t too bright but looks natural and pretty. Well this is it and it’s worth every penny.

korres lip butter pink swatch

€10 isn’t admittingly cheap for a lip balm but you’re buying a really, really good product here. It feels silky and soft on, moisturises the lips with shea butter and has an SPF15. The finish is tinted with a slight shine but it thankfully won’t stick to your hair in the wind or make your sandwich taste like gooey balm when you’re trying to eat. There actually isn’t one thing about this balm I don’t like, it’s perfection in a tube.

I’m delighted Korres are easily accessible now and if you’re on the splurge for a nice balm, Clerys is the way to go. I’ll definitely be picking up more of the balms!

AND if you’re dying to try Korres but won’t be able to make it to Clerys, there will be a Korres competition in January so keep your eyes peeled!

So girls have you tried anything Korres yet and are you as obsessed with lip balms as I am?

    You know I’m obsessed with lip balms too and I love Korress too, but never bought their lip butter because it was in a pot. Now I know they have a stick version I think I would buy it.

      I know pots can put off a lot of people, honestly try the sticks they’re lovely!

  • bridget douglas

    This lipbalm sounds great! I haven’t tried anything by Korres yet but it gets rave reviews, definitely a brand to check out. I think Debenhams stock Korres too, I ordered a Korres giftset for one of my friends recently from their website.

      • bridget douglas
