Korres Mango lipstick SPF 10
Packaging is clean and sleek. The tube has a heavier feel compared with the Guava lipstick, which is nice - it feels like you're holding a good quality product.
The colour I got is Pink 17, which looks scarily bright in the tube but is a sheer wearable reddish pink:
Top - one swipe
Bottom - two swipes
The colour is buildable so even with my pigmented lips this shade does show up.
Very moist and glossy. Not *quite* as moist as some Japanese lipsticks (i.e. T'estimo) but still pretty darn good for a Western brand. I can't remember how it compares with MAC Slimshines because I don't own any at the moment, but its probably similar if not better.
Price wise it is more affordable than the Korres Guava lipsticks at US$18 for 3.4g/0.12oz. It is also more in line with MAC pricing which is US$16 for 0.1oz of their regular bullet lipsticks.
Overall, its the polar opposite of the Guava lipsticks I reviewed previously. While the Guava lipsticks were pigmented and slightly drying, the Mango lipsticks is sheer and moisturizing.
Any of you tried Korres lipsticks / glosses? What do you think?
