Today when I asked myself if I should stop by Sephora on my lunch break, the answer hit me like one of Zeus’s thunderbolts: “Of Korres!”
Korres, the Greek maker of natural skincare, color and body products, has been piquing my interest lately. Here are swatches of the colors in their Raspberry Liquid Lipstick line ($22 each).
Korres Raspberry Liquid Lipstick swatches from left on NC35 skin: Nude Beige, Natural, Berry, Fuchsia, Red
I only discovered them last week, but already my lips are in lurve — with everything from the colors to their high-gloss shine and comfy, non-sticky texture. A+
It was a comment on my initial look at these from reader MKDallas that prompted me to hit Sephora. She was surprised how much the colors didn’t fit the shade descriptions on Sephora’s website, and I have to agree. Hopefully the above swatches help.

So how do you feel about Korres (I’m becoming a big fan)?
Doing anything fun tonight? Other than relaxing and catching up on trashy reality TV, I may flip through some furniture catalogues. I’ve been living here in Novato for a full year and still have an empty dining room (I mean EMPTY, as in no table, chairs, light fixtures — nothing). Home decorating stresses me out, so I keep putting it off, le sigh.
If you have any interior design tips or decorating suggestions, I’d love to hear ‘em.
How are things out your way? Anything new to report?
