Korres Lip Butter Glaze in Pomegranate
Blue skies may have been smiling at me yesterday, but my face of the day left me with lips like the Sahara. My kisser needed TLC today, and Korres Lip Butter Glaze ($14; available in five shades) came to my rescue.
The mad moisturizing, non-sticky formula is surprisingly thin and lightweight, but Korres still found room inside it for a subtle vanilla fragrance, which I like (it is unflavored, though). I put Pomegranate (a pinkish coral) on this morning, and by mid-day my lips already felt and looked a lot better.
Both of the colors I’ve tried, Pomegranate and bright red Wild Rose, could almost pass for Jello from afar (peach and fruit punch, respectively!). They create a semi-transparent, shiny layer of goodness on my lips, ahh…

One thing these aren’t is long wearing, so best brace yourself for frequent reapplication — about every two hours or so. I don’t mind, though, because they feel so blasted good, and the tube makes quick touchups easy.
AVAILABILITY: Available in five shades (Quince, Pomegranate, Wild Rose, Jasmine and Raspberry) at Sephora stores and online
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: A+
Speaking of Vanilla…
I wonder… Should I be ashamed to admit that I danced to Ice, Ice Baby in my living room today? Part of me thinks, “Yes, Karen, you should.” But I’m not.
Yo, VIP. Let’s kick it.
I rapped along to it, too. Weird. If I can remember the lyrics to bad 20-year-old songs, why can’t I remember to take out the trash on Thursday nights? WHY!?
Anywho, what did you do tonight? I just got back from a little window shopping at the mall. Doing anything fun?
